DisplayMate: iPad Mini 4 Has Lowest Screen Reflectance of Any Mobile Display Tested

Posted by · 6303 views · Translate
DisplayMate has revealed that the new iPad mini 4 has a much improved display with a full and very accurate 101% sRGB Color Gamut and a very low 2.0% screen reflectance. That level of reflectance is the lowest they've ever measured on any mobile display tested.

For comparison, the previous minis had a 62% Color Gamut with poor color saturation and a very high screen reflectance. The iPad mini 3 had 6.5% reflectance and the original iPad mini had 9.0% reflectance.

The previous record holder for low Reflectance was the iPad Air 2 with 2.5%, but most of the Tablets that we have tested recently fall in the range of 5.0% to 6.5% screen Reflectance (including the mini 3). So the iPad mini 4 has a Contrast in ambient light that is a factor of 2.5X to 3.2X higher than most other tablets (and 36% better than the iPad Air 2) - a major display performance improvement in real world viewing conditions! In fact, the iPad mini 4 has a Contrast Rating for High Ambient Light of 225, the highest we have ever measured and another record for the mini 4.

Other lab measurements for the iPad mini4 included a high Luminance of 449 nits and a Contrast Ratio of 955 (in 0 lux absolute darkness).

I am glad I got the mini 4 instead of the 3.
