Samsung Galaxy S6, S6 Edge And Note 4 Tied For Best Smartphone Display
During its MWC presentation this year Samsung put a huge emphasis on the exquisite display unit in its latest Galaxy S6 flagship. And, as it turns out, this is more than just a promotional stunt, the new Galaxy has a gorgeous QHD Super AMOLED panel, which might just turn out to be the industry's best.
But there is also another contender - the Galaxy Note 4. Both phones were sent to DisplayMate for testing and they are having a hard time crowning a definitive winner among the two.
Both the Galaxy S6 and S6 edge made it to the company's testing grounds and were put through rigorous tests. Although the phones differ in form factor, their display units are identical - 5.1-inch panel, with a QHD resolution of 2560 x 1440 pixels and a ppi rating of 577. The only difference is the slight curve in one of the models, so both were tested just in case.
It turns out that the panel in the Galaxy Note 4 and the S6 are very close in terms of overall performance. Even though the screen on the new Samsung flagship has been scaled down in size by about 20% compared to the Note 4, it has maintained its amazing picture quality and is battling the phablet for the "Best Performing Smartphone Display" title.
Samsung has a lot to boast about its current device lineup. Naturally, the best in class title wouldnt be complete without a shootout with the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus, which currently hold the title "Best Mobile LCD Displays" and according to DisplayMate, Samsung leaves both of them in the dust as well.
The incredibly thorough and detailed test documentation, results and final verdicts can be found at the source link, along with quite comprehensive comparison tables. So you can really dig deep into the question. But one thing is for sure, Mr. JK Shin was definitely not lying when he said that the Galaxy S6 and S6 edge are "the most advanced smartphones in the world".
