DisplayMate is know for being hands-down the most comprehensive smartphone and tablet display analysis firm in the business. So when they say something good about a smartphone’s display, you know they mean it. Today, DisplayMate has published their findings on the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 and it’s nothing but good news for Samsung’s latest flagship.
According to DisplayMate, the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 boasts the best display they have ever tested in a smartphone. From the Note 4′s analysis:
Based on our extensive Lab tests and measurements, the Galaxy Note 4 is the Best performing Smartphone display that we have ever tested. It matches or breaks new records in Smartphone display performance for: Highest Absolute Color Accuracy, Highest Screen Resolution, Infinite Contrast Ratio, Highest Peak Brightness, Highest Contrast Rating in Ambient Light, and the smallest Brightness Variation with Viewing Angle. Its Color Management capability provides multiple Color Gamuts — a major advantage that is not currently provided by any of the other leading Smartphones. The Galaxy Note 4 delivers uniformly consistent all around Top Tier display performance: it is the first Smartphone display to ever get all Green (Very Good to Excellent) Ratings in all test and measurement categories (except one Yellow for a Brightness Variation with Average Picture Level) since we started the Display Technology Shoot-Out article Series in 2006, an impressive achievement for a display. The Galaxy Note 4 has again raised the bar for top display performance up by another notch.Dr Raymond SoneiraDisplayMate
While Samsung is busy bragging about being the first to market with oversized smartphone-tablet hybrids, they should be bragging about this. What better selling point for a device with a 5-plus-inch display is there than “Our device has the best screen on the market”? Apparently, Samsung has killed it in the hardware department. They probably won’t, but let’s just hope they don’t forget to remind everyone.
