We have taken the six best mobile displays from our Display Technology Shoot-Out article series over the last year and performed an in-depth analysis of their Color Accuracy. Since we only test the best performing displays to begin with, they were already known to be fairly good. There are none-the-less significant differences between them. With color variations of up to 10 JNCD between the displays shown in Figure 3, it was fairly easy to see some significant visual differences between all of the displays. So, while we learned which ones are the Best of the Best, there is still plenty of room for future improvement
1. The Samsung Galaxy Note 4 is the winner in Absolute Color Accuracy, coming in first place in all categories for its Basic Screen Mode setting.
2. The Microsoft Surface Pro 3 and the Samsung Galaxy Tab S 10.5 are tied closely for overall second place.
Notably, the iPhone 6 Plus and iPad Air 2 perform considerably better in the Skin Tone and Organic Color Accuracy categories with the iPad Air 2 coming second place behind the Galaxy Note 4. Unfortunately, both devices are in last place for the Full Gamut Color Accuracy. This is partly because of a "over saturated Blue primary that distorts almost the entire Blue Region, which accounts for about half of the half of the entire Color Space and increases the Average Color Error" and a "less accurate bluish White Point".
