[Discussion] Know More About Screen to Body Ratio

Hi MI Fans,
Hope you are having a great day!!!

Most people mainly pay attention to the display size (diagonal, in Inches) of a device, but the diagonal only tells you how big the inner-screen is.
  • Screen-to-body ratio is really important part of smartphone/tablet’s specifications. The value determines how compact is the device compared to other devices with the same display size. If we have to use other words – how big the bezels are.

  • Better screen-to-body ratio means "less bezel". There’s significant difference between devices with the same screen size.
  • Once you got the idea behind the screen-to-body ratio, then we can show you how to calculate it. You need several numbers – the resolution ratio, screen diagonal (in mm), width and height. Not everybody out there loves math, but there’s no way to calculate the ratio without using some math. You can easily get your phone’s width and height, but you need to calculate the resolution ratio and the screen diagonal.
  • The resolution ratio is easily calculated when you divide your display’s pixels height by width. For example, if your smartphone has FHD resolution, then its 1920 divided to 1080 (1920/1080). The resolution ratio for a full HD display is 1.78 (rounded).
  • On the other hand, a device with a 100 ratio would have no visible body when looked at from the front.
Next is the screen diagonal in millimeters. You just need to multiply your display diagonal by 25.4 (one inch has 25.4 millimeters). For a 5-inch display, this gives us 127.

How to Calculate Screen to Body Ratio:
Here’s the formula for screen-to-body ration:
Resolution ratio * (screen diagonal ^2)/ ((resolution ratio^2 +1) * width * height).

The past year has seen wonderful advances in smartphone design – and more specifically, killing the bezel. The current wave began when Xiaomi announced the Mi Mix late last year, after which mobile companies took their own approach to maximizing screen real estate in 2017.
