    How do apps like YouTube look in full screen? Any black border?

    It depends on aspect ratio of the video. There are very minor black bars at the top and bottom of videos shot in 16:9 for example. Not very noticeable because it bleeds into the black bezel of the screen.

    The BlackBerry KEYone has a 4:3 aspect ratio like televisions from the 1980 and earlier. Black borders are a given unless the software works magic.

    Like on any other device, you will have black bars anytime the aspect ratio of the video doesn't match the aspect ratio of the display screen.

    The K1 screen isn't 16:9, the most common ratio for modern media, but it is fairly close, so the bars will be small. . Movies in ratios like 4:3 ("square", like old TV shows) or 1:2.35 (Cinemascope wide-screen) will have bars regardless.

    Actually, it has a 3:2 ratio, which is quite different from old TV, which was 4:3.

    4:3 is 1:1.33
    3:2 is 1:1.5
    IMAX is 1:1.66
    16:9 is 1:1.78

    Common movie ratios are:
    1:1.85
    1:2.35 (Cinemascope wide-screen, usually used for epics)

    In the example ratio of iPad, if you use an app designed for iPhone on the device it looks awful. Take the example of Snapchat or Twitter android Apks. Do these run content with black frames too?

    Cheers Bla1ze, what about an app like Twitter? I guess the code automatically reformats it on that one. Any problem apps?

    Than you for the correction. The 3:2 ratio is odd to say the least but at this point why ask why. Does anyone know how videos look in terms of viewability on the BlackBerry KEYone?

    Most apps can and will reformat themselves to fit the screen. 3:2 is within the supported range for Android apps, so the majority of apps should have no problems handling the screen ratio. There may be a few exceptions that can't, for reasons specific to the app, but largely, you won't notice anything unusual.

    Can anyone use Sky Go? I understand not due to the 3:2 aspect. Can it be changed to allow apps such as Sky Go to work?

    The 5 is 16:9, I think its the same as pre-5 iPhones which are 320x480 and 640x960?

    Older iPhones are 3:2, newer ones are 16:9.

    Where is the 70mm presentation (2.20:1), and original 3-strip Cinerama (2.60:1)



    Sorry, a bit of a film buff here.

    Only 2 real movies were ever done in Cinerama (the real, 3-strip version). Given all of the many practical problems with the format, it's not surprising that it hasn't been used since the 60s. LOL.

    I was mostly covering the ARs that are relevant today.

    With the Passport one can double click the screen to fill the screen and get rid of the bars albeit resulting in a cropped image or video. Can this be done on the Keyone?

    Some apps are not able to auto-fit, for instance, Instagram Stories. End of the day, KEYone is at the mercy of software developers' poor coding.

    Yeah, 16x9 (1.78:1) vs. 3x2 (1.5:1). I think we've established that early on.
