Tips on the Aspect Ratio of Your Windows PC (10/8/7), Mac and Devices

Actually, the aspect ratio of the computer/device is close related to the resolution of display. Widescreen (16:9) monitors can be found in resolutions of 1024×576, 1152×648, 1280×720, 1366×768, 1600×900, 1920×1080, 2560×1440 and 3840×2160.

The original screen ratio of TV was changed from 4:3 to 16:9, while the display of a Computer with aspect ratios wider than 4:3 is called widescreen. Because of the different ratio, a 16:9 display or monitor will have a shorter height than a 4:3 display or monitor of the same advertised size.

How to Identify and Know What is the Aspect Ratio of Your Computer/Device?

If you only know the screen resolution of your computer, tablet or smartphone, you can figure out the aspect ratio by dividing the length by the height and comparing the result with that of dividing 4 by 3, 16 by 9 or 3 by 2. For example, iPhone 5 is made better watching widescreen movies with the resolutions of 1136x640 of 16:9 aspect ratio.
