    Smartphone Screen Surface Area, Common Size Chart
    [​IMG]

    The key numbers in this chart are the far left column, "Diagonal", which describes the commonly quoted screen size of a phone (i.e. the iPhone 5s is 4.0"). The other is "Full Area", which tells the maximum total surface area for that diagonal. This is because older iPhones (model 4s and earlier) used a 3:2 aspect ratio. Presently, every flagship is on the 16:9 aspect ratio.

    LOL @ the guy saying that the fingerprint reader is in the back.

    I would not upgrade for a thicker version of the phone.

    The S5 that I have now it awesome.....just need them to release the god damn wireless charging for it.

    What's worse about it?

    It looks pretty fantastic to me. If I wasn't immersed in Apple devices I'd look at it for my next computer. Seems comparable to the retina MacBook Pro with a weaker graphics card and more versatility.

    I know a couple artist friends of mine are ordering this week.

    Was it? Other than the weak battery life it seems solid, especially for the price. I hope they do make a 6 so I can get my brother with a blackberry to finally upgrade. would need better battery though.

    ****HELP****

    My Samsung Note 2 has become slow-as-fuck within 2 days, and the touchscreen is not responding unless I touch it 10 times to do 1 function.... but here's the weird thing. The only app active is the browser (dolphin) and everything is slow when it's recieving/sending data... When it's on Airplane mode it's speedy fast.

    Anyone have any suggestions?

    It's a hell of a coincidence that this just started happening when I just became eligible for a contract renewal and a new phone. Goes to my theory that Samsung designs it's products to go to shit in 18 months.

    I got the LG Flex and I cant imagine a nicer phone out right now. Its big, but not giant, the picture quality is the best thing I have ever seen. The only complaint I have with it is, that it is nearly impossible for me to get a screen protector on it with out bubbles. It was easy to do with my Iphone 4, but with this it just wont work.

    I haven't paid attention to phones much in 3 years, as that's how old mine is, but its funny that clearly children still care very much about which 'brand' they have and regardless of facts will trash the others, like always. Cute.
