10 Best Full-Screen Phones

The easiest way to understand the concept of a bezel is to consider the frame around a photograph. The bezel is a term describing the frame around displays, like the ones on your smartphone, smart TV, or tab.

Adding structural integrity to the device, the bezel encompasses everything (apart from the screen) on the front of your device.

These days, smartphones keep getting slimmer, thinner, and yet more powerful. Focusing on the display, here are the 10 full-screen or bezel-less phones.

Top Full Screen Phones 

When we talk about bezel-less, we normally refer to less bezel and not a total lack of bezel.

Let’s have a quick look at the table for a comparison

Huawei P30 Pro

Huawei P30

With a screen size of 6.47 inches and a screen-to-body ratio of 88.5%, Huawei has done a decent job of packing a huge screen into a comparatively sleek body. The phone display has an aspect ratio of 19.5:9, and there is a teardrop notch carved out of the top as well as a sliver of thin bezel at the bottom.

Though it’s an OLED screen, it does not quite match the resolution of a number of the other popular smartphones, so it is not all that sharp at 398 PPI (pixels per inch).

The Huawei P30 Pro is, however, an incredibly powerful phone that offers solid battery life, along with a versatile camera suite, and several other goodies.
