How many Nokia 5110 screens does it take to fill an iPhone 6s Plus?

The Nokia 5110 will go down as one of the most legendary handsets ever manufactured. But how does it stack up against current cellphones?

The Nokia 5110 was a colossus (literally, and figuratively) of mobile technology at the turn of the century, as its 160 million owners will attest.

For its chunky dimensions, it came with a 600mah battery, interchangeable covers and one of the world’s most-loved mobile games: Snake.

The screen was 84 x 84 pixels, which equated to a resolution of a whopping 65 pixels per inch.

Compare that to the 401 ppi density of another cellular giant; the iPhone 6s Plus. How many Nokia 5110 screens do you think could fit into the 5.5 inch screen of the 6s Plus?

Owners of phones such as the Motorola Razr and Samsung Galaxy, won’t be left out either, as these handsets also are also acknowledged in the infographic.
