DisplayMate has conducted its in-depth analysis of the Samsung Galaxy S5 display and declared it the 'best performing smartphone display' they've ever tested.

Based on our extensive Lab tests and measurements, the Galaxy S5 is the Best performing Smartphone display that we have ever tested. It has a long list of new records for best Smartphone display performance including: Highest Brightness, Lowest Reflectance, Highest Color Accuracy, Infinite Contrast Ratio, Highest Contrast Rating in Ambient Light, and smallest Brightness Variation with Viewing Angle. The Galaxy S5 has raised the bar for top display performance up by another notch – an impressive achievement for OLED technology!

The Galaxy S5 has the same 2K 1920x1080 Full HD resolution with 432 ppi as the Galaxy S4. Rather than increasing resolution with its new flagship device, Samsung concentrated on improving the Maximum Brightness, Screen Reflectance, performance in High Ambient Light, Absolute Color Accuracy, Viewing Angles, display power efficiency, and running time on battery.

With Apple widely rumored to be releasing new larger iPhones this year, the company will likely need to increase the resolution of its devices to remain competitive. Just recently, Japan Display announced the development of a 5.5-inch-wide Quad HD (WQHD) display with a resolution of 1440x2560 which might be a candidate for the iPhone.

Isn't 1920x1080 a Full HD resolution officially. The next step up I believe is 4K (3840x2160) and 8K (7680x4320). I read something about LG placing a higher definition screen for their next flagship handset. LG is getting better with better graphics, processing and using dedicated DAC on their audio output. Doesn't really matter at the end of the day.

Are you guys seriously spending your valuable time responding to spineless sewage trolls like "Wow" about the WORST flagship mobile in the history of mobiles? I haven't EVER seen so many Samsuck fan-fags complaining furiously against Samsuck for releasing an almost non-existant update to last year's 'flagship'. It's thicker, marginally faster (especially compared to S4+), uglier, copy-cat (copied iPhone's fingerprint scanner, although initially promising a retina/eye scanner), didn't include a 64bit processor (as promised on November along with Qualcomm, in order to contradict to iPhone's inclusion of a 64bit chip) and ONLY 2GB of RAM whereas Sony's flagship Z2 has 3GB of RAM - FAILURE is written all over it!

Dear little ratGT :) if 2GB Ram makes it crappy compared to 3GB :) then what does that mean for your precious iPhone 5S? Less than shit or worse? Bests :)

Samfaggy, you're barking at the wrong door! Ok, I'm going to feed the troll: You are going against someone that follows ALL news, from ALL makers and OSs. Facts ARE facts and here they are once again: Z2 is THE BEST flagship in the Android world (MORE ram, BETTER camera, GREATER built quality). As for the iPhone 5S/ GS5 comparison: you are comparing last year's flagship with this flagship?!? HOW desperate have you samtrolls gotten?? And to make things EVEN WORSE, last year's 5S has got optical image stabilization which is STILL absent in S5 (while LG, HTC, etc. has included it since last year or ealier) and MUCH higher quality camera sensor than ALL the Galaxies, which are almost useless low light conditions (outdoor in shadow covered areas, afternoon, evening, night, indoor with or without light, etc.). And you know what's almost funnier?!? S5's camera is WORSE than S4's!!!

FTW - April 1, 2014 at 11:06am
Awe you gonna keep up your business putting up no army of myth believers and believe the expectations again, keep trying.
Wow - April 1, 2014 at 12:02pm
just one question, has the Galaxy S5 the best display or not? stop bitching about other stuff just tell me was the report right? YES OR NO!
FTW - April 1, 2014 at 12:22pm
Yes and no because their are macs and ipad sized which are bigger than phablets but only s5 does good on phones. Nowhere close to anything else. And after that rant, answer my question to answer your whining, is the 5s the best performing smartphone overall other than showing off retina? Yes or no?
Wow - April 1, 2014 at 1:05pm
Your answer had to be YES AND YES because the report was talking about smartphones. You're taking the word FANBOY and iSheep to a whole new level. I mean what a fuckedup brain does someone have, that he comes up with "look at iMacs, iPads and shit" in a report which talks about Smartphone Displays. The Title clearly says the BEST SMARTPHONE DISPLAY EVER!!! SO STOP BITCHING AROUND! AND NO YOU CLEARLY SAW THE GEEKBENCH RESULTS STUPID RETARD FUCKEDUP ISHEEP FANBOY!!! iPhone 5S 2569 Points, Galaxy S5 2884 points. if you still dont understand 2884>2569 thats the overall performance!

And you achieved to take samsheep level to ultimately delusional as fck. Still didn't do damn homework and your excuse? You use one tiny achievement and still comes close to acting like a winner worshipping like you. Allow me to continue to educate the weak minded crap you are. You compared multi core only, single core? Don't bother. now that's samsheep strategy right from your anus, still didn't follow that manga post and my referenceto products I pointed out, trying to end your rant I see. Too bad. Samshit tech and apple tech with computers and tablets, what about that? Oh yeah where's the pixel free display for either plastic toys compared to retina? theirs your answer to you coming back here to learn. Quit carrying your herd minded shit here, see a psychiatrist already samshitter. Live up that damn dream.
