iPhone X Has the 'Most Innovative and High Performance' Smartphone Display Ever Tested (macrumors.com) 233

The display in the iPhone X is produced by Samsung and improved by Apple, says screen technology analysis firm DisplayMate. The company has released a display shoot-out for the iPhone X, praising Apple's technology in areas like the higher resolution OLED screen, automatic color management, viewing angle performance, and more. Mac Rumors reports: According to DisplayMate, the iPhone X has the "most innovative and high performance" smartphone display it has ever tested. DisplayMate also congratulated Samsung Display for "developing and manufacturing the outstanding OLED display hardware in the iPhone X." iPhone X matched or set new smartphone display records in the following categories: highest absolute color accuracy, highest full screen brightness for OLED smartphones, highest full screen contrast rating in ambient light, and highest contrast ratio. It also had the lowest screen reflectance and smallest brightness variation with a viewing angle. The iPhone X's 5.8-inch OLED display includes a taller height to width aspect ratio of 19.5:9, 22 percent larger than the 16:9 aspect ratio on previous iPhone models (and most other smartphones). Because of this DisplayMate noted that the iPhone X also has a new 2.5K higher resolution with 2436x1125 pixels and 458 pixels per inch. The iPhone X's display resolution provides "significantly higher image sharpness" than can be analyzed by a person with normal 20/20 vision at a 12-inch viewing distance. DisplayMate said this means that it's now "absolutely pointless" to increase the display resolution and pixels per inch of the iPhone any further, since there would be "no visual benefit" for users.

    had a better display...... it only lacked the NSA back doors.

      Funny how the takeaway by most Tech sites from the recent hardware tests has been "it's the easiest to break out of any iPhone to date." But lo and behold, here's BHD with another anus kissing fanboy article full of fluff shit that nobody cares about.

      • Yea I want reviews give praises to my phone! Not theirs. I want confirmation bias to my favor. Because I put thought in what device I want to have and I had weighed the pros and cons and made my decision. How dare someone else make a different choice! They must be paid off or just stupid. Because these benefits were all about the features that I had decided I didn’t need as much compared to other features and benefits.

    Ars Technica stories of any note invariably end up here, but instead of running iPhone X is the "most breakable iPhone" [arstechnica.com], they ran with this slashvertisement instead.

    BeauHD could have at least added the display is the most "innovative in fragility" as a secondary story.

    Tentatively posting, critical AC posts have been removed lately, their post number 404'd.

      Yes that's typical Beauhd.

    • Compared to what phones. There are some phones built like a tank. While the iPhone 4,5,8 and 10 have a front and back glass panels. Also these new devises are bigger. So there is more room for breakage. It can still be the strongest glass but still be damaged.
      Also as of not these were not real world tests. They were rigged tests for reproducibility.

      Normally there is a balance between flexibility and hardness. A screen that will not easily shatter is also more likely to be scratched.

  • But it's only 5.8 inches.

    Someone should let DisplayMate know that VR is a thing.

    • They're also wrong about the 12 inches. There have been studies that prove it's false. Diminishing returns yes, but the difference is discernible.

        What about 12" ? What studies proved that what is false? substantiate this gibberish or don't bother commenting.
    • Is it really a thing though? Looks like a flop to me.

  • ... at that price.
  • samsung developed it, and makes it, its like saying I personally own the US army ... cause I pay someone else to do it for me

    • The US Army doesn't manufacture it's own guns. Indeed, there are other armies who own the same guns and compared to those guys the US Army is, well, like Apple compared to virtually every other company making smartphones.

  • Should be: "Samsung's display that Apple buys for the iPhone X is the most innovative and highest performance display ever tested"

      Should be: "Samsung's display that Apple buys for the iPhone X is the most innovative and highest performance display ever tested"

      You mean the display that Samsung built to Apple's exacting specifications? (Apple basically designed the display, they just didn't manufacture it themselves).

  • Well imagine that. Amazing.
  • They obviously didn't test it against a modern 4k phone display like https://www.sonymobile.com/ca-... [sonymobile.com]
    458ppi? Try 806. What a laugh.

  • "DisplayMate said this means that it's now "absolutely pointless" to increase the display resolution and pixels per inch of the iPhone any further, since there would be "no visual benefit" for users."

    Clearly they haven't used Google Cardboard.

  • Not that I expect much from macrumors.com besides self-stroking masturbation, but it's funny to see them flex *Apple* in the headline instead of, you know, *Samsung*, who developed the damn screen. Instead, those who should get the credit for the innovation are given second billing...That's just limp.

Thrashing is just virtual crashing.

Working...
