Phone Arena reports that the forthcoming iPhone 6’s screen-to-size ratio may well be lower than that of the flagship phones of Apple’s competitors.

The screen-to-size ratio refers to how little of a smartphone’s front face is wasted by the bezel, or anything else that takes space away from the touchscreen.

PhoneArena has taken the leaked screen size of the iPhone 6 and the size of the actual phone and calculated from that the screen-to-size ratio, which, for the 4.7-inch iPhone 6, would be 65.8%.

In isolation, this doesn’t tell us much, but when compared to its smartphone rivals, it shows that while the 4.7-inch iPhone 6’s screen-to-size ratio is higher than that of the iPhone 5s, it is lower than that of the likes of the Sharp Aquos Crystal (78.42%), the LG G3 (76.33%), the Nexus 5 (72.33%), Samsung Galaxy S5 (69.76%), and even the HTC One M8 (66.71%).

Clearly such differences are not a priority for Apple, but interesting facts all the same.
