Google urges developers to optimize apps for long phones like the Samsung S8 and LG G6

    Well screens aren’t going to get wider, that’s not practical. It’s easier to use a longer screen one handed compared to a wider screen so I don’t think it’s just a fad. The screen size arm race will continue until (if) foldable/bendable screens become a thing.

      ^^^^This. I agree.

  • mike m

    are they paying them?

    Sounds like the Pixel 2 is going to follow suit with this aspect ratio.

      Which is confidence inspiring for those looking to buy an S8 or G6 IMO.

    Am I the only one that hates long screens? I can only assume they’re doing this to cram more ads into chrome. I have a pixel xl and large hands but can’t stand the height. I sure hope 4:3 ratio comes back.
