Was there even a contest? The Galaxy S10, Samsung’s newest flagship yet again features one of the best display ever, on a smartphone. That is according to DisplayMate, and we do not disagree with them. Going as far as to say that the phone’s display is “Visually Indistinguishable From Perfect”.

Starting off with the viewing test, which was deemed excellent by the website. The Vivid mode was, however, a bit on the non-accurate side. But the other two modes were calibrated to produce accurate DCI-P3 and sRGB contents. It also pushed out a record high brightness of 1,215 nits, a whole 17% brighter than on the Galaxy S9.
Not only that, but the new phone also upped the viewing angle performance and improved blue light spectrum. The new iteration also gets high dynamic range HDR+ performance improvements as well. Samsung even managed to improve the viewing angles as compared to its predecessor.
All this while at the same time boosting power efficiency. The Galaxy S10’s display was rated A+, a new highest for any smartphone tested till now by DisplayMate. We did get to test out the S10 for a while, and can clearly vouch for that. The Samsung Galaxy S10 certainly has one of the best displays on a smartphone.
Apart from the actual quality, the display itself holds a few other interesting features. The first, a punch hole at the top right that houses a selfie camera. The second is an in-display ultrasonic fingerprint scanner. And finally, the curved sides, which has been a trademark for Samsung flagships for over four years now.
