As we use our smartphones more often and for more complex tasks, screen size has grown more important when selecting a device. Large screen smartphones, sometimes called “phablets,” have taken the market by storm.
A larger screen provides many benefits. It makes viewing movies and playing games more enjoyable, allows for precision with the touch screen and often hides a more powerful battery and hardware.
If you’re convinced that a big screen is the way to go, you’re not alone. Manufacturers offer a variety of smartphones with generous screen sizes. From smallest to largest, here are the five (best) phones with the largest screens you can get in 2019.
5. Samsung Galaxy S9+
The Samsung Galaxy S9+ has a 6.2-inch screen capable of Full HD+ and Quad HD+ resolutions. Its “infinity screen” integrates smoothly into the device, which measures approximately 6.2 inches long and 2.9 inches wide.
The S9+ has top-of-the-line specs, making it a more affordable alternative to the slightly larger Galaxy Note 9.
4. Google Pixel 3 XL
The Google Pixel 3 XL improves upon previous Pixel phones when it comes to screen quality. Its 6.3-inch screen can present 16.77 million colors as well as true black.
Aside from a pretty noticeable notch at the top, the screen takes up most of the Pixel 3 XL, which measures 6.2 inches long and 3.0 inches wide.
This large screen smartphone sets itself apart with the quality of its camera, which can use AI to improve your photos.
3. Samsung Galaxy Note 9
Although it only recently launched, the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 has already impressed the public with its top-of-the-line specs and Bluetooth S-Pen stylus. But the Note 9 also boasts an impressive display.
The Note 9’s screen measures in at 6.4 inches and sports a 2960 x 1440 resolution. The phone itself is only slightly bigger than the screen, at 6.37 inches long by 3.01 inches wide, so it’s not too bulky.
The size of the Galaxy Note 9’s screen allows it to serve as a true productivity tool — perfect for drawing, writing and multitasking.
2. OnePlus 6T
If you’re looking for a large screen at a reasonable price, consider the OnePlus 6T. At 6.41 inches, this phone’s bright display is just bigger than Samsung’s Note 9.
It measures approximately 6.16 inches long by 2.49 inches wide. It features a strong battery life, user-friendly OS and impressive specs, especially considering it’s several hundred dollars less expensive than the competition.
1. iPhone XS Max
The winner of the largest smartphone screen goes to the iPhone XS Max. Apple users looking for a large screen need look no further. This phone has a large, 6.5-inch display as well as an impressive 2,688 x 1,242 resolution, which allows it to provide an immersive viewing experience.
The enormous screen fits nearly edge-to-edge within a device 6.20 inches long by 3.05 inches wide. If you want the biggest screen around and don’t mind the price tag, the iPhone XS Max is your perfect option.
Though some lower-range options are available, large screen smartphones like these can still be expensive. If you’re saving up for a new phablet in 2019, consider selling your old phone with The Whiz Cells. We buy a variety of devices at competitive prices, so you can get the phone you really want.
