Yep, the Galaxy Note 9 has the best smartphone display ever


Last updated: August 14th, 2018 at 11:54 UTC+02:00

DisplayMate has published its results of the Galaxy Note 9’s display and deemed it the best smartphone display ever. Surprised? Neither are we. The Galaxy Note 9 display has many improvements over the Galaxy Note 8 and also a few over the Galaxy S9. For example, while the Galaxy S9 had a record absolute color accuracy (0.7 JNCD) that was already visually indistinguishable from perfect, Samsung has managed to improve the Note 9 display slightly (0.5 JNCD) even on that front.

Best smartphone display award goes to the Galaxy Note 9

The Galaxy Note 9 display is 27 percent brighter than the Galaxy Note 8’s and also 32 percent higher in contrast at maximum brightness with auto brightness enabled. Technically, the Galaxy Note 9 can reach up to 710 nits (cd/m2) with an all-white screen – that is, when the screen is completely lit up – and 1,050 nits peak brightness when only a small amount of pixels are lit up. The peak brightness is lower than the Note 8 and the S9, but as DisplayMate notes, that shouldn’t be an issue as the peak brightness doesn’t come into the equation for most apps and images. The Note 9 is also similarly efficient as the Galaxy S9 and Note 8 when it comes to power consumption, suggesting that current OLED panels may have reached a peak in this regard.

There are a few other parameters in which the display on the Galaxy Note 9 comes out on top (such as the shift in brightness and color at extreme viewing angles). You can read DisplayMate’s detailed results at the source link. And, of course, do check out what we think of Samsung’s new flagship overall and look forward to our complete review in the coming days.
