Samsung Galaxy Note 8 display

A few months ago, research firm DisplayMate released its report on the display found on the Samsung Galaxy S8, and declared that it had the best display ever made for a smartphone. Now, the firm has gotten a hold of the new Samsung Galaxy Note 8, and not only has its display surpassed the one on the Galaxy S8 in its testing, but DisplayMate has given the Note 8 its first ever A+ rating for a smartphone.

One of the most noticeable improvements on the Note 8’s 6.3-inch display is that its brightness can be set up to 22 percent higher than that on the Galaxy S8. The report also notes that the Note 8’s maximum screen brightness can go much higher when the phone’s Automatic Brightness feature is turned on. This should allow owners to have the best brightness levels in any setting and location, which should also help the phone’s overall battery life.

In addition to the higher brightness levels, DisplayMate says the Note 8 also has a larger native color gamut compared to the Galaxy S8, for better colors when the phone is in a high ambient light setting. Also, the firm noted improvements in the Note 8’s color accuracy and viewing angle, along with enhancements in its image processor, performance and power saving modes and much more.

Samsung has made solid improvements in its new flagship phone's display

While many other companies might have been very happy to just slap on the same display from the Galaxy S8 to the Note 8, DisplayMate’s report makes it clear that Samsung has made solid improvements in its new flagship phone’s display. Do Samsung’s efforts on the Note 8’s display make you more likely to purchase the phone? Let us know what you think in the comments.
