16:9 vs 3:2


With the HP Spectre x360 being impressively refreshed heading into 2020, and using the Surface series as a benchmarking comparison on design & spec, it seems the last big purchasing hurdle between the two is the screen ratios of 16:9 vs. 3:2.

So why exactly is this an issue for people? Both in theory and in real world scenarios?

Interested to hear peoples takes on this. And noting that this is from a typical consumer perspective excluding business or niche usage requirements.

Why is the general sentiment towards 16:9 as being inferior to 3:2?
