Screen size, resolution and quality are some of the most important features to consider when choosing a smartphone.
Apple iPhone 7's 4.7" IPS LCD is slightly larger (0.1" ) than the Sony Xperia Z5 Compact's 4.6" IPS screen.
Besides comparing the LCD sizes, another specs that we find useful to compare is the ratio of screen area to total surface area of the phone (screen area/total surface area).
Sony Xperia Z5 Compact and Apple iPhone 7 have exactly the same display coverage of 70%- so we don't have a winner here.
Screen size is only one side of the story, resolution is as important in most cases.
Apple iPhone 7's 326ppi pixel density is only slightly higher (7ppi ) than the Sony Xperia Z5 Compact's 319ppi pixel density.
