Just as its tradition, the screen quality of the latest high-end Samsung Galaxy Note 10+ has been tested by DisplayMate. And according to the site, this one is the best they have ever tested.
While Samsung has just officially introduced its Galaxy Note 10 and Note 10+, some specialized testers had it in advance to give their verdict. This is the case of DxOMark, which places it first in their photo rankings, but also … DisplayMate, of course.
Samsung Galaxy Note 10+ Rules Again
As every year, the site focusing on accurately testing the screen of smartphones has offered its highest rating to Samsung for the Galaxy Note 10+: A+.
The display on the Samsung Galaxy Note10+ is brighter than ever too. With High Brightness Mode turned on, it reaches up to 778 nits with an all-white screen, beating the Note9 screen by 10%. The peak brightness is a record-setting 1,308 nits (though with much less of the screen showing white).
Viewing angles are not quite perfect, however. The white shift at a 30° angle is 2.8 JNCD – small enough that it’s unlikely you’ll notice, but the Galaxy S10 scored 0.7 JNCD in this metric. Both displays lose just under 25% of their brightness when viewed at a 30° angle.
Here’s the full list of the 12 display performance records matched or broken by the Note10+:
