With the 6.5-inch custom-built OLED panel in Apple’s new iPhone XS Max, it is found that what we earned is the “Best Smartphone Display Award” which has a near perfect calibration and performance, which is in accordance with display testing and calibration experts over at DisplayMate Technologies.
With DisplayMate tested with every new major smart-phone releases and the latest iPhones having no exception is with the investment cost for Apple at high in advanced display technologies which certainly shows.
iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max displays several characteristics
The custom-built 6.5-inch OLED panel, which has the biggest display in any iPhone to date, matches or sets smart-phone has a display record in several bars, including image quality and colour accuracy.
Key takeaways to include as follows:
Fullscreen brightness at peak is higher: With around 660 nits displays an all-white screen (725 nits on the Home screen vs 726 nits for the X), iPhone XS Max beats iPhone X’s peak full-screen brightness of 634 nits. Hence being activated upon this for the sRGB and DCI-P3 having colour gamuts has a visibility in high ambient conditions.
Screen reflectance is lower: With a low screen reflectance of 4.7-percent has better readability, picture quality along with colour accuracy in ambient light without having been washed-out. With the screen reflectance being measured for iPhone XS Max at 4.7-percent is “close to the lowest” for any smartphone.
Absolute colour accuracy is truly impressive: With a color accuracy of 0.8 JNCD (Just Noticeable Color Difference) for the sRGB / Red.709 color gamut (used for most current consumer content) and 0.8 JNCD for the DCI-P3 color gamut used for 4K TVs and digital cinema, both iPhones are “visually indistinguishable from perfect” and considerably better than any mobile display, monitor, TV or UHD TV that you have.
Hence with the peak brightness being set aside, lower screen reflectance, and the highest contrast rating for ambient high light is the testing which has recorded for a smart-phone, is being the worth a mention?
Thus with the smallest colour shift (image content APL at 0.4 JNCD) however has the smallest brightness variation. Hence for those with wondering being with the largest colour shift with the Max occurs at 30-degrees at 6.2JNCD and a 15% brightness variation.
With the basis of extensive lab tests and measurements, iPhone XS Max receives our ‘Best Smartphone Display Award’, earning at the DisplayMate’s which is highest ever A+ grade provided considerably better with display performance competes for smartphones concluding their report, titled iPhone XS Max OLED Display Technology Shoot-Out.
iPhone XS Max displays and earns the highest accolades in DisplayMate’s is testing despite being more with challenging to manufacture than smaller OLED-built screens.
Hence one can comfortably view both iPhone XS and Max screens with a typical wet indoor and outdoor conditions which have stronger water and dust-proofing earning it the IP68 rating vs IP67 for the X.
With a more durable and scratch-resistant cover glass, the new iPhones thus provides a higher resistance to breakage than the previous X, 8 and 8 Plus models.
A look at the competition:
With last year, DisplayMate named the OLED panel on iPhone X being their most innovative and highest performance smart-phone screen. With, Apple’s first OLED-based iPhone has overtaken with just a few short months later is by Samsung’s Galaxy S9.
Thus the Samsung phone named as DisplayMate’s with new best-performing mobile screen and the first smart-phone panel receiving all-green ratings with their lab tests. As for Samsung ‘s newest flagship Note 9 smart-phone, is the curved 6.4-inch Super AMOLED-based Infinity Display, has earned the highest-ever A+ grade in DisplayMate’s testing.
Samsung Galaxy Note 9:
With Samsung’s Galaxy Note 9 having a 6.4-inch Super AMOLED screen, called Infinity Display.
Per the Apple stats, where the Super Retina display is what iPhones support is with wide colour gamut (DCI-P3), a million-to-one contrast ratio, 625 cd/m2 top brightness and High Dynamic Range video hence with support for Dolby Vision and HDR10 content.
Hence all iPhone have screens with factory calibrated, helping Apple to set these records.
Thus with one final conclusion being aware is the fact is that iPhone XS Max screen which works with polarized glasses of both orientations, unlike many LCDs have been working well in either portrait or landscape.
