Smartphones with Full Screen Display under Php20k

This year has been the year of the new full screen, edge-to-edge and near a bezel-less display with flagship phones like the Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus, LG G6 and V30, Pixel 2 XL and iPhone X to name a few. While people seem to love this new display evolution, most of us can agree that these flagship phones are getting way too expensive. On the other hand, there are still other alternatives in the high-midrange department that offers an elegant display that costs half of the usual flagship phones’ price tag.

The new 18:9 aspect ratio that is being adapted by newer phones is undeniably enticing because the taller screen offers more content without scrolling and immersive multimedia experience. So if we could see a list of manufacturers that put out a full-screen phone with an 18:9 aspect ratio, and not have it cost an arm and a leg, then we would be very excited to check it out.

That said, here are the smartphones with full-screen display and have an 18:9 aspect ratio with no less than Php10k and no more than Php20k. The smartphones listed below are all available in the Philippine market, official or online store, from January to December 2017 and are arranged from lowest to highest.
