As of today there are many mobile phones that have different screen widths and heights. This post explains what is the most responsive screen width or size for a website in the year 2020. If you are a designer or developer of websites, then this question will not be unknown to you. First of all, a handy overview of screen resolutions and user percentages, based on statistics from screens used around the world in the period from November 2016 to November 2020, which you will want to take into account in 2020:
|Resolution (WxH)||User percentage|
|1366 × 768||12.85%|
|1920 × 1080||7.76%|
|375 × 667||4.94%|
|1440 × 900||3.32%|
|1280 × 800||2.67%|
When you are asked what the best screen width is for a mobile friendly website, you could answer: design and build first for your specific target group, then for others. However, you do not want to ignore that that mobile friendliness of a website is taken into account when positioning it in search results.
We all know by now that Google considers the use of mobile friendliness as an important ranking signal. This affects mobile search in all languages worldwide and it has a significant impact on all search results. Users not only need relevant results but also search results that are optimized for all mobile devices while simultaneously a correct display is required on desktops, laptops and notebooks.
Conclusion: if you design and build a website solely with your target audience in mind, can be adversely affected by the measure of Google, the ‘ranking’ or positioning of the site. Especially when you underestimate the degree of mobile use of your target group.
