Effective pixel sizes for different Windows 10 devices

When defining layout in a UWP app, measurements are in effective pixels (EP).
Here, for my reference as much as yours, is how the EP values for a range of devices compare.

Device Effective Pixels
4" phone 320x533
5" phone 360x640
6" phone 432x768
8" tablet 640x1024
12" tablet 960x1440
13.3" desktop 1280x720
23" desktop 1920x1080
xbox (42") 1280x720
55" Surface Hub 1920x1080
84" Surface Hub 2560x1440

Or to compare they can be visualized like this:

There's also HoloLens and IoT devices to potentially consider too.
Details for HoloLens are not yet available and the range of possible screens you could connect to an IOT device is incredibly broad so I chosen to leave it out.
