DisplayMate is know for running extensive testing on smartphone displays and providing ridiculous amount of detail on their performance with measurements that most of us wouldn’t even know how to read. That’s why when Raymond Soneira, the president of DisplayMate, says that Samsung’s Galaxy S6 smartphone has pretty much the best display out there, you had better believe it. The only thing that matches the Galaxy S6’s screen is the Galaxy Note 4’s screen. Basically, Samsung is dominant in this area.
The Galaxy S6 has the world’s best smartphone display, joining its cousin the Galaxy Note 4 atop the podium with a shared crown. The honor is from DisplayMate, which runs extensive testing on smartphone screens and provides very detailed performance analysis, looking at viewing angles, pixel density, color accuracy, brightness, and other sophisticated measurements. Testing guru Raymond Soneira, the president of DisplayMate, said the new phone from Samsung “matches or breaks new records in smartphone display performance” in several areas: screen resolution, pixels per inch, and highest absolute color accuracy. He was impressed with the 2560×1440 resolution that offered 577 ppi in comparison to the Galaxy S5’s 432 ppi, a stark jump in just one release cycle. However, it’s a shared crown with the Galaxy Note 4, as the larger display still had many of the qualities found in Samsung’s newest device. Samsung’s ability to maintain the display specs and performance with a screen smaller than the Note was particularly laudable, according to Soneira.
