Which Smartphone Has the Best Screen Display? (Hint: NOT the iPhone)
Samsung Geeks | On 30, Sep 2014
There are many, many factors to think about when choosing a new smartphone. One of the most important – and most underrated – is the quality of the device’s display. Whether you’re playing games, looking at photos or browsing the web, a high-resolution screen will make all the difference to the quality of your experience. This is precisely why the big players in the Smartphone market are so keen to get the very best high-resolution displays into your hards. The big question, then, is which smartphone has the best screen display?
Until now the market leader has been the Samsung Galaxy S5. Boasting a 2 megapixel, 1920 x 1080 full HD resolution screen, the S5 generates 432 pixels per inch. These numbers represent a stunning display that offers a remarkable level of detail and brightness to the user. The resolution is, in fact, higher than can be processed with normal 20/20 vision.
However, screen resolutions have reached a point where the best screens are about more than pixel resolution. The display needs to perform in various conditions, offering a consistent experience across variables such as viewing angles, ambient brightness, screen reflection and display power efficiency. In other words, the best smartphone display must have both exceptional technical features and impress in a range of situations and conditions.
The Samsung Galaxy S5 might be the resident smartphone display champion, but it’s about to be knocked off its perch. Which smartphone has the best screen display? This October Samsung will be launching the Galaxy Note 4, featuring the best display we’ve ever seen on a smartphone.
The Best Smartphone Display: Samsung Note 4
Samsung have clearly worked hard to make sure that the Note 4 offers an unrivaled viewing experience:
“Its extraordinary 5.7-inch Quad HD (2560×1440) Super AMOLED display reproduces clearer and more vivid images with deep contrast, better viewing angles, and response times as fast as a millionth of a second, providing a tremendous viewing experience.”
Samsung phones have always been recognised for the quality of their screens, and the Note 4 display is no different, generating a whopping, unprecedented 518 pixels per inch. It’s big, bright, razor-sharp and incredibly functional. The display can be arranged to offer multiple screens and arrange the position of apps on the screen.
When you’re able to display 4 full-HD images simultaneously then you’re clearly offering seriously high screen resolution. However, that isn’t all that the Samsung Note 4 has to offer.
When your smartphone generates the kind of resolution that the Note 4 offers, there are a number of obvious questions that we need to ask. How well will the display perform in day-to-day life? What effect will it have on battery life?
Unsurprisingly, Samsung have given serious thought to these questions. The super-AMOLED display isn’t just powerful; it offers excellent all-round performance. With 4 selectable screen modes you can customise your viewing experience and increase the usability of the smartphone in conditions such as direct sunlight.
The Note 4 also offers an ultra power saving mode to keep that beautiful display working for longer. The display offers excellent picture quality across the brightness spectrum, with various dimming options to save power and minimise nuisance in dark environments. With a fast charging feature, you can also get the Note 4 back into operation from a flat battery within a matter of minutes.
The Samsung Galaxy Note isn’t just beautiful and bright; the Note series also offer users an S-Pen to increase functionality. The new S-Pen will offer a much more authentic, natural pen experience.
There are various benefits to the Samsung Galaxy Note 4’s new high-resolution display. You can, for example, take a photo of your handwritten notes, convert it to a S Note and start annotating it with the S-Pen. The additional resolution ensures a clear, enjoyable viewing experience for work tasks as well as accessing media.
Conclusion: Which Smartphone Has The Best Screen Display?
Display Mate reckon that the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 has the best smartphone screen display, and we’re not going to disagree. Each round of product launches brings bigger and better screen resolutions, and the Note 4 is no different. That 5.7-inch Super AMOLED display is certainly going to take some beating. However, it’s not just the numbers that are impressive. The all-round display package that the Note 4 offers is quite simply outstanding.
