In line with the current electronic trend, capacitive touch, large screen, fast charging, and other technologies have resulted in a cell phone boom. Among them, the term “screen-to-body ratio” has endured, having been mentioned by the industry in 2013, and then by cell phone manufacturers’ research efforts, has become a number of flagship cell phone launch talking points, the bottom card in the hands of business comparison, close to let the consumer’s ears callus. The screen-to-body ratio is calculated by dividing the “cell phone screen area” by the “entire frontal visual area.” The higher the screen-to-body ratio, assuming the same body, means that the larger the screen, the greater the tolerance for touch screen operation, as a visual display is also more shocking.
Screen as an important location for cell phone interaction, in the limited volume to make a larger screen has been the flagship phone’s direction Because of the unwavering efforts of cell phone manufacturers, cell phone screen ratio has gradually increased from 80 percent to 85 percent, and now has reached 90 percent or higher. However, the premise is that even after spending a lot of manpower and material resources, the laboratory may only 1 percent of the cell phone screen ratio, so the high screen ratio has been the Slogan or synonym for expensive flagship phones. However, not long ago, the glory cell phone newly released two thousand yuan machine — glory 8X (1399 yuan), and glory 8X MAX (1699 yuan), but the first to hit the screen to occupy more than 90% of the promotional slogan The Honor 8X is the smallest in the series, with the highest 91 percent screen-to-body ratio on the Honor product line, compared to the 6.5-inch full-screen into the “traditional 5.5-inch phone body”, 4.25mm ultra-narrow bottom edge, the whole screen to 91 percent; while the Honor 8X MAX has a 90.05 percent screen-to-body ratio, with a 7.12-inch ground pearl screen.
The comprehensive previous glory X series product line, 8X and 8X MAX is the most significant breakthrough in a series of products, many of which should not have appeared in the industry on the parameters of the thousand yuan machine but were achieved.
However, the screen-to-body ratio index of the Honor 8X series is also questioned by consumers; how can a thousand-dollar machine achieve the screen-to-body ratio of a flagship phone? Compared to the official data, the actual measurement will be more convincing; the editors happened to have the Honor 8X and 8X MAX two phones in hand, so we measured the actual screen-to-body ratio of the 8X series in a more intuitive way. The test yielded 50588 body pixels for the Honor 8X MAX and 40522 body pixels for the Honor 8X. (Note: the original pixel density, compressed data will be changed by the platform upload.)
The Honor 8X MAX has 45,629 screen pixels, while the Honor 8X has 36,998 body pixels. Calculation results Honor 8X MAX screen-to-body ratio: 45629 50588 90.19 percent Honor 8X screen ratio: 36998 40522 91.30 percent
Similarly, we calculate for the Xiaomi 8 and Xiaomi 8SE.Xiaomi 8 screen-to-body ratio 83.16 percent / Xiaomi 8SE screen-to-body ratio 80.17 percent The conclusion is that the Honor 8X comes in second only to the two flagship phones released this year by OPPO and Vivo. The screen-to-body ratio of the OPPO Find X with fully hidden dual-track camera is 93.8 percent, and the screen-to-body ratio of the Vivo NEX with elevated zero-border full-screen is 91.24 percent, both of which are near the top of the country in terms of design and experience. The screen ratio calculated by Photoshop pixel, excluding edge error, shows the official glory 8X (91 percent screen ratio), glory 8X MAX (90 percent screen ratio) data is very close to the flagship level, screen ratio exceeded 90 percent, is a thousand yuan machine market cross-level presence.
Comparison of mid- and high-end cell phones When comparing mid-range and high-end phone models to the Honor 8X, you will notice that the bottom bar of the phone’s bezel (also known as the chin) on the Honor 8X series has been extreme narrowed. COF (Crystal Overlay Film Technology) is a screen encapsulation technology that has recently been used in flagship phones.
COG vs. COF technology distinction In general, our cell phone screen will be driven by the IC via a line connected to the motherboard; this driver IC will be packaged with the screen in the front of the phone, so the compromise has a “chin” with the home button, similar to the iPhone8. However, with the recent rise of the “full-screen” concept, high-end cell phones appear “drive IC integrated in the row line” COF packaging technology, the drive IC can be placed in the back of the screen with the flexible row line, leaving more space for the phone screen in the front. The Honor 8X applies this technology to a $1,000 phone, and after continuous debugging, it achieves an extremely narrow bottom bezel.
Note: iPhone X packaging technology for COP, using the flexible properties of the OLED screen, the screen 180 ° folding to achieve. The price is high, and it does not apply to the thousand yuan machine.
Honor 8X MAX Honor 8X Based on the glory 8X series’ full screen share and large screen attributes, other aspects are always carefully considered for users, such as water drop full screen, Germany TüV Rheinland eye protection technology, Kirin 710 processor, and powerful AI performance, making the giant screen phone more rich and diverse. Throughout the domestic cell phone market, glory has been committed to bringing a better experience for the majority of young consumers with the machine, the 8X series is more cost-effective peak configuration, from the user’s point of view, so that consumers with the most real price to buy the most quality cell phone.Extended reading.Honor 8X comprehensive review: the first screen of a thousand dollars!
