It is important to note that phone screen size does not determine the size of a phone. iPhone 6 screen size is a typical example. Screen size and phone size are never the same thing, The display size simply defines the parameter of the transparent glass or rubber area where images, data is displayed.
On the other hand, the phone size defines the entire gadget surface area in dimension (height x width)
