Display Diagonal

Sale tornado active until Sunday.

Denotes the distance between the lower left and upper right-hand corner of the screen, given in inches. How big a diagonal measurement should I choose and for which device? What are the advantages and disadvantages?

Smart phones

In the case of smartphones, the current trend is towards larger displays. Such phones are ideal for web browsing, watching videos or playing games. However, such large displays also have their drawbacks, such as decreased portability and the need to use both hands when calling. Devices with displays between 5 and 7" are sometimes called "phablets" (phone + tablet).    


Tablets with a diagonal of 6" to 7" are lightweight and portable, 8" to 10" tablets represent a good compromise between mobility and usability, while large 12" tablets are designed with work in mind.


Diagonal size is one of the key parameters when choosing a laptop. The most common size is 15.6".

Notebook display sizes:

  • 11.6" - for those who are constantly on the move
  • 13.3" - for travel and work in the office
  • 14" - for travel and work in the office
  • 15.6" - for office work, games and multimedia
  • 17.3" - for office work, games and multimedia
