Smartphones with a giant display

Do you love large smartphones and are you looking for a new 6-inch cell phone? Because this not only makes it more fun to look at photos, play games or use your favorite apps, there is also space for larger batteries. And the trend shows: Today's smartphones are getting bigger and bigger. The high-end models from leading manufacturers in particular now measure far more than 6 inches. The size counts. At least with smartphones. Because on a large screen it is not only more fun to look at photos, play games or use favorite apps, there is also space for larger batteries. And the trend shows: Today's smartphones are getting bigger and bigger. Especially the high-end models from leading manufacturers now measure far more than 6 inches.

This development can be shown well using the example of Apple: The iPhone 4 in 2010 had a 3.5-inch display that would probably look tiny to us today. Four years later, the iPhone 6 Plus had a 5.5-inch screen. And today the iPhone Xs Max, the current Apple flagship, measures an impressive 6.5 inches. This trend can also be observed with manufacturers such as Huawei and Samsung.

However, a large screen alone does not guarantee an excellent display of content on your smartphone. The resolution of the screen is also important. You can find them in another DEINHANDY leaderboard Cell phones with the best display resolution.
