The iPhone X is one costly smartphone, but based on DisplayMate’s testing of the phone’s display, the iPhone may be worth its hefty asking price. According to the firm, the iPhone X has “close to textbook perfect calibration and performance.”
In DisplayMate’s extensive testing, it has plenty of good things to say about the iPhone X’s display. Not only is the OLED panel a very colour accurate display – DisplayMate even went as far to say it is visually indistinguishable from perfect – the iPhone’s screen also has the highest “full screen brightness” of any OLED smartphone at 634 nits.
On top of that, the iPhone X’s display also has a diamond sub-pixel arrangement for enhanced sharpness and higher peak brightness. It’s worth noting that this sub-pixel arrangement is also found on the Samsung Galaxy Note 8.
While Samsung supplied the iPhone X’s OLED displays, DisplayMate attributed the phone’s remarkable display to Apple’s calibration. In its own words, it is Apple’s calibration expertise that turned the Samsung-made display into a “superbly accurate, high performance, and gorgeous display.”
OLED displays in recent times are considered to be superior to LCD panels, and DisplayMate’s extensive testing does show this. If you’d like to read DisplayMate’s full review of the iPhone X’s display, you can do so here.
