Back in the January, Samsung launched the Galaxy S21 series composed of three handsets: Galaxy S21, S21, and S21 Ultra. All three devices bring cutting-edge specifications, however, the Galaxy S21 Ultra is miles far ahead the other two. Just like the last year, the Ultra model has the best beastly hardware available in the market. And now, the result of DxOMark’s review on the screen and audio of the Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G (Exynos) is out.
The handset is the new leader of screen performance, but it is on eleventh placement when it comes to audio.
DxOMark’s review is popular with the camera performance. However, they also benchmark other individual aspects of a smartphone. It’s curious to see why the Display and Audio reviews are coming before the expected camera results. Anyway, Galaxy S21 Ultra’s screen is still the industry’s first-class level. However, the audio quality does not seem to leave a particularly good impression on DxO.
For those unaware, the Galaxy S21 Ultra comes with a 6.8-inch AMOLED 2x screen. It has Corning Gorilla Glass 6 coating and a QHD+ resolution with 3,200 x 1,440 pixels. The panel has an aspect ratio of 20:9, a refresh rate of 120Hz, and 515 pixels per inch. Interestingly, it has two AKG speakers on top and bottom sides and offers support for Dolby Atmos technology. The device is equipped with three microphones.
Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G Becomes The New King Of Displays
DxOMark states that due to the legibility and video playback testing, the Galaxy S21 Ultra deserves first place in DxOMark Display with a 91 score. Interestingly, the former leader was no other device than the Galaxy Note20 Ultra, Samsung’s top-notch device before the S21 Ultra.
The audio playback is remarkable but has some flaws. It scored 71 points in audio recording and 70 points in playback. As far as the display is concerned, DxO believes that the legibility, color accuracy, and video playback of the S21 Ultra surpass the previous S20 Ultra.
