iPhone X’s Samsung-made screen is best – Displaymate

Earlier this year, we saw the Samsung Galaxy S8 and then the Galaxy Note 8 claim top marks for screen quality from benchmarking firm DisplayMate.

This is due to Samsung’s expertise in crafting fantastic AMOLED screens, having come a long way from the original Galaxy S smartphone. Now, with Apple’s iPhone X out of the door, the device’s Samsung-made OLED screen has wrested the ‘best display’ crown from the Note 8.

“The result: Apple has produced an impressive Smartphone display with excellent performance and accuracy… What makes the iPhone X the Best Smartphone Display is the impressive Precision Display Calibration Apple developed, which transforms the OLED hardware into a superbly accurate, high performance, and gorgeous display, with close to Text Book Perfect Calibration and Performance!! (sic)” read an excerpt of DisplayMate’s findings.

Some of the highlights touted by the firm include the new 19.5:9 aspect ratio, “record” absolute colour accuracy and record full screen brightness in ambient lighting.

“Based on our extensive lab tests and measurements the iPhone X becomes the Best Performing Smartphone Display that we have ever tested, earning DisplayMate’s highest ever A+ grade,” the benchmarking firm concluded.

This year marks the first time that Apple has adopted an OLED screen for one of its models, after years of using LCD screens for its iPhones. In saying so, the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus still stick with LCD tech.
