Display Mate Crowns Galaxy Note 4 Display Best Of The BestBy cheatmaster 10:19 Thu, 22 Jul 2021 Comments
A couple of months ago Display Mate proclaimed the Apple iPhone 6 display as the "best-performing LCD", it has done more testing and now the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 earns the "best of the best" title.
As part of a shootout it went up against the iPhone 6 Plus and four tablets, including the Super AMOLED-packing Galaxy Tab S and the iPad Air 2. Display Mate used the iPhone 6 Plus instead of the smaller iPhone 6 becautilize the two screens perform similarly.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 4 won the Full Gamut and White Point color accuracy tests while set on the Basic display mode. Display Mate's earlier tests show the Photo Pro mode performs similarly.
Interestingly, the Apple screens did quite well in Skin Tone and Organic Color accuracy tests – the iPad Air 2 is second, while the iPhone 6 Plus places third. It seems that Apple optimized for natural images, but in terms of Full Gamut and White Point accuracy both devices did quite poorly.
Of course, Display Mate could have picked a more representative sample of devices to compete with the Galaxy Note 4 and iPhone 6 Plus, but still.
For tablets, Samsung's large Super AMOrganic Light-Emitting Diode (OLED) does remarkable too – it comes in second for Full Color and White Point accuracy, but it's third for Skin Tone and Organic Colors. The Microsoft Surface Pro 3 slots in behind it with a slightly worse White Point accuracy.
