Just barely a week since it was officially unveiled by Samsung, the Galaxy Note 5 is already starting to garner praise from certain circles. One of them is DisplayMate, which recently claimed that the Samsung phablet may have the best display screen of any smartphone the company has ever tested.
In its latest laboratory tests, DisplayMate took Samsung’s newest phablet offerings -- the Galaxy Note 5 and the curvy Galaxy S6 Edge+ -- and analyzed the display screens of both devices. DisplayMate's President, Raymond Soneira himself, provided very high marks for the two handsets, in terms of the performance of their display screens. For those not in the know yet, the Galaxy Note 5 features a 5.7 inch Quad HD display screen with a resolution of 2,560 by 1,440 pixels, while the Galaxy S6 Edge+ has the same screen size and resolution, but with a display that curves around to its sides. But among these two new smartphones, Soneira cited the Galaxy Note 5’s display screen as the best.
There are many factors that influence how mobile users decide on which smartphone to purchase. It really comes down to personal preferences -- for instance, selfie freaks will always go for handsets with high quality cameras, while others may examine a device’s processing power. Display screen performance, however, has been steadily increasing in importance in the minds of prospective mobile buyers. As smartphones become more integral to daily routines and recreational activities, people now are more conscious about the quality of a device’s display screen. Whether it be for reading text, viewing images, watching movies, or playing games in any environment or light condition, mobile users now want a display screen that can perform really well.
So how did the Samsung Galaxy Note 5 fare in this area? Compared to its predecessor the Galaxy Note 4, the Galaxy Note 5 provides a much higher level of optimum brightness, better screen visibility and readability under high ambient light conditions (ambient light is any existing light in the immediate surrounding of an object).
The Galaxy Note 5 is also more power efficient with its display screen compared to its earlier version. This presents quite an advantage because mobile users can enjoy its display far longer without draining the battery faster. The new device also earns points for its color accuracy -- Soneira claims the handset may be the best in this category that DisplayMate has ever tested.
As for the Galaxy S6 Edge+, DisplayMate also praised the device for its very solid display screen testing scores. Both the Galaxy Note 5 and the Galaxy S6 Edge+ utilize OLED display screens, which are lighter and slimmer than LCD display screens (such as those used by Apple’s iPhones).
