Taller Screens Are Realy Usefull: Good Reviews By Users
Bigger screens don’t cut it anymore. Now, we need taller screens. I’ve been playing with the LG G6 for the past 24 hours. In many ways, it is just another phone. But the company is trying something new with a 2:1 aspect ratio display — essentially a normal 16:9 display that can fit a few extra lines of text at the top and bottom. And it makes a big difference.
I’ve played with the G6 for the past 24 hours. At first, I was quite skeptical about this new format. For instance, if you watch a video, there are narrow black bars on each side of the video. And I’m sure many games haven’t been optimized for this aspect ratio. But in real life usage, the taller screen makes a big difference.
My main phone is currently the iPhone 7. While I’m always impressed with the iPhone 7 Plus, it’s just too big for me. It doesn’t fit in my pocket, it’s hard to type with one hand as the keyboard is too large. I understand why people love those devices. But I have tiny hands and this kind of phablets is not for me.
The G6 is roughly as wide as my iPhone 7 with Apple’s case. It’s just a tiny bit taller. But when you turn those phones on, LG’s phone feels much bigger just because the screen takes over the front of the device.
When you read an article, when you browse your inbox or when you look at a map, you can fit more content on your display. It just feels like a more efficient device with less wasted space.
