A recent report by DisplayMate claims that the latest Samsung offerings, Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge have taken over the Lab testing. The screen used in these smartphones has smashed the records grabbing the position of the best display ever seen on smartphones.

Notably, the report adds that the only match that was found during the testing was the display on the Galaxy Note 4 that went official in the last year. The praise came to the Samsung’s display due to the astounding pixel count that was stuffed into the screen. Well, the 5.1 inch display packs in Quad HD screen resolution of 2560×1440 pixels resulting in 577 ppi pixel density.


The pixel density in the yesteryear flagship model, Galaxy S5 is 432 pixels per inch, whereas this one comes with 577 pixels per inch. Eventually, there is a 27 percent improvement in the color accuracy and 20 percent improvement in the power efficiency of the Galaxy S6 in comparison to the Galaxy S5.

Going by the report, the Galaxy S6 is the second display that has scored “Very Good to Excellent” across all the tests for Peak Brightness and Contrast in High Ambient Light conditions.

The report adds that there was tremendous difference when the Galaxy S6’s display was compared to that of the iPhone 6’s LCD screen. The Galaxy S6 has resulted in four times higher pixel count as in the iPhone 6. Also, it has rendered higher contrast ratio, higher peak brightness, higher absolute color accuracy and better viewing angle performance in both low and high ambient light conditions. It also has four selectable screen modes and not just one as in the iPhones.
