Default Question about its 5" display size

Its actual measurement is only 4.25" and not 5". The HTC One only has 4" display and not 4.7". Why would they claim otherwise?

yea screens are measures from one corner to the other, anything that exists with a screen does this (phones, monitors, tvs, etc).
