Questions:

I’m looking for a list of all screen aspect ratios for popular Android based Phones and Tablets.

Changelog:

  • May 2018: Added 56x27 === ~18.7x9 (Huawei P20), 19x9 (Nokia X6 2018) and 19.5x9 (LG G7 ThinQ)
  • May 2017: Added 19x10 (Essential Phone)
  • March 2017: Added 18.5x9 (Samsung Galaxy S8) and 18x9 (LG G6)

Answer:

I researched the same thing several months ago looking at dozens of the most popular Android devices. I found that every Android device had one of the following aspect ratios (from most square to most rectangular):

  • 4:3
  • 3:2
  • 8:5
  • 5:3
  • 16:9

And if you consider portrait devices separate from landscape devices you’ll also find the inverse of those ratios (3:4, 2:3, 5:8, 3:5, and 9:16)

Answer:

It is safe to assume that popular handsets are WVGA800 or bigger. Although, there are a good amount of HVGA screens, they are of secondary concern.

Answer:

the best way to calculate the equation is simplified. That is, find the maximum divisor between two numbers and divide:

ex.

1920:1080 maximum common divisor 120 = 16:9
1024:768  maximum common divisor 256 = 4:3
1280:768  maximum common divisor 256 = 5:3

may happen also some approaches

Answer:

The Sony Tablet P is old, but it can switch between 32:15 and 32:30 for each app in landscape mode, and vice-versa in portrait mode, so that’s a minimum range to aim for
