Samsung aced the Galaxy Note 7 display
Not only does Samsung produce the most AMOLED displays for mobile device use in the world, it does a heck of a good job on them. The Galaxy Note 7‘s panel represents a new apex, according to one outlet.
DisplayMate has thoroughly analyzed the display and has ironically criticized the chaebol for its Note 7 moniker, saying that it “should really have been called the Note8 so that its name will be in better sync with the future Galaxy S8.”
Colors are subject to the wider-than-ever DCI-P3 gamut meant for 4K televisions and an HDR video playback mode for even greater range for non-optimized videos along with more restrained sRGB gamuts. The dual ambient light sensors — a first on smartphones — better help the device hone in on brightness adjustments. Speaking of, the Note 7 is able to achieve a record level of brightness at 1,048 nits and the lowest amount of screen reflectance as well.
All these factors contribute to DisplayMate’s judgment that the Galaxy Note 7 has the best display in the smartphone sector to-date.
