Easier to handle
Rectangular devices are easy to handle compared to triangular or circular devices. If your device had been circulare, it could just drop anywhere anytime. For triangular devices, they would not fit in your pockets.

Aspects ratio helps the users experience screen clarity and best picture clarity. The symmetry of the numbers and the alphabets are much more classic on rectangular devices. If our gadgets were triangular or circular, then there would be a waste of pixel space and hence, the clarity and picture quality would not be the best.

The Math behind it
Mathematically, we all know that the perimeter of a rectangle is greater than the perimeter of a circle or a triangle. Therefore, it can hold more pixel squares in it than a circular or a triangular screen. That is why, scientists make gadgets and devices that are rectangular in shape and not circular or triangular.
