What can you expect from the Samsung Galaxy S5’s display once it finally launches later this month? One that has a freaking insane display, according to the experts at DisplayMate. The company recently performed deep analysis of the Galaxy S5’s panel, and concluded that it’s the absolute best mobile display they’ve tested… ever.
It has a long list of new records for best Smartphone display performance including: Highest Brightness, Lowest Reflectance, Highest Color Accuracy, Infinite Contrast Ratio, Highest Contrast Rating in Ambient Light, and smallest Brightness Variation with Viewing Angle. The Galaxy S5 has raised the bar for top display performance up by another notch – an impressive achievement for OLED technology!
It’s quite a remarkable achievement when you think about how highly regarded Apple displays usually are. That Samsung was able to best those is quite telling. Of noteworthy mention in helping the Galaxy S5’s display to this reward is Samsung’s new Diamond sub-pixel arrangement that prioritizes RGB pixel size based on efficiency. The layout makes for better aliasing, more accurate colors, and an insanely sharp picture.
The display’s 432ppi pixel density means it’s sharp to even those with 20/20 vision, it’s very power efficient, and can get super super bright.
Samsung has always impressed with the displays on their smartphone — even their worst is better than some companies’ best — so we aren’t surprised they pulled out all the stops for this one. Be sure to read Display Mate’s full analysis if you’re interested in the hard details.
