Samsung Galaxy S7 has the best display according to DisplayMate
Last year, when DisplayMate Technologies rated the screen of the Galaxy Note 5 the best smartphone display they ever tested, it was not the first such award received by Samsung. One year earlier, DisplayMate rated the screen of the Galaxy Note 4 as the best one tested until then. Now, the Galaxy S7 takes everything one step further, taking the crown of its larger predecessor.
Samsung quoted DisplayMate's in-depth analysis, which sums it all up by saying "The display on the Galaxy S7 matches and even exceeds the performance of the Galaxy Note 5 that we tested in 2015 and rated as the Best Performing Smartphone Display that we had ever tested." The current Samsung flagships use a 2,560X1,440-pixel Super AMOLED screen that has 5.1 inches in size for the Galaxy S7 and 5.5 inches for the Galaxy S7 Edge.
DisplayMate Technologies also praised the Super AMOLED display of the Galaxy S7 family for its contrast rating, "among the highest that we have ever measured for a smartphone." Another attribute they highlighted is the pixel size, 24 percent smaller for the Galaxy S7 when compared to the Galaxy Note 5, but there is much more to this last-generation display.
The Galaxy S7 and the Galaxy S7 Edge have just been unveiled in Barcelona earlier this week and will go on sale starting March 11 in select markets.
