Samsung Galaxy Note7 has "the most innovative and high performance" display
One year ago, DisplayMate Technologies rated the screen of Samsung's Galaxy Note5 as the best smartphone display they ever tested until then. Now, Galaxy Note7 becomes the third Note phablet in a row to take the crown as the handset with the best display tested by DisplayMate.
"The Galaxy Note7 provides many major and important state-of-the-art display enhancements, with mobile OLED display technology now advancing faster than ever. It is the most innovative and high performance Smartphone display that we have ever tested," writes DisplayMate. More than just that, DisplayMate's president Raymon Soneira thinks the display of Samsung's phablet is simply ahead of its time. According to him, "the Note7 should really have been called the Note8 so that its name will be in better sync with the future Galaxy S8."
The detailed tests performed by DisplayMate show that the display of Samsun's Galaxy Note7 outperforms both those of the Note5 and the Galaxy S7 in almost every scenario. This screen has one of the lowest reflectance values ever recorded by DisplayMate, while its maximum brightness of 1,000 nits makes it the brightest smartphone display to ever reach the market.
