A complete breakdown of why the Galaxy S6’s display will blow your mind

March 10th, 2015 at 1:10 PM
Samsung Galaxy S6 Display

Through good times and bad, Samsung devices have consistently won high praise for their top-notch displays and we shouldn’t be surprised that the Galaxy S6 is winning similar acclaim. DisplayMate president Raymond Soneira has run his analysis of the Galaxy S6’s display and he’s found that it really only has competition from Samsung’s own Galaxy Note 4 for the title of the best display in the world.

FROM EARLIER: Impressed by the Galaxy S6? Even better displays could arrive as soon as this year

What makes the Galaxy S6’s display so good? Well if you know anything about display technology, you’ll know that it goes well beyond how many pixels per inch the device has, although at 577 ppi, it’s definitely no slouch in that department.

Other than pixel density, Soneira rates the Galaxy S6 as above average in terms of absolute color accuracy, image contrast accuracy, brightness under different viewing angles and overall performance in ambient light. These grades hold up when the display is in its regular mode, its AMOLED photo Mode, and its Adaptive Display mode that shows a wider color gamut.

Despite these impressive grades, Soneira also found that the Galaxy S6’s display “is 20% more power efficient than the Galaxy S5,” which had a very nice display of its own.

Soneira also has good news for anyone thinking of buying the Galaxy S6 edge because “the performance of the OLED display on a flexible plastic substrate for the Galaxy S6 edge (and Galaxy Note Edge) is now essentially the same as on a traditional flat and hard substrate for the Galaxy S6.”
