Most Popular Screen Resolution in April for Smartphones

What is the Display Resolution?

The display resolution is the width and height dimensions of an electronic visual display device in pixels. A higher display resolution in a display of the same size means that displayed content appears sharper.

@51Degreesshares data on the most popular Screen Resolution for Smartphones during April 2015. Apple devices are not included.


The chart shows us the Top 5 Screen Resolutions which account for around 87% of all of them. The most popular was 1920x1080 with 33.56%.

Top 5 Screen Resolution Evolution

This last year has seen resolution evolution.

Screen Resolution April 2014 April 2015
1920x1080 24.54% 33.56%
1280x720 24.82% 21.11%
800x480 24.16% 17.53%
960x540 7.92% 10.68%
2560x1440 0.00% 4.03%
480X320 7.44% 3.61%
Others 8.20% 9.17%

The biggest news looks to be the increase in popularity of the screen resolutions at the highest end of the spectrum. We see the 1920x1080 emerging at the top; almost +10% of market share on this time last year; it shows the biggest percentage change of any of the resolutions and also now holds the no.1 slot. Last year’s most popular, the 1280x720 has dropped by about 3.5% to position 2, but this still holds 21.1% which remains a significant share. The other significant change has been with the highest screen resolution of all, the 2560x1440. This is a new entry to the figures and currently has 4% of market share and is definitely one to watch over the coming months.
