For those of you with the iPhone 5, this news should come as no surprise at all. The experts over at DisplayMate have told us that it believes the iPhone 5’s display to be “the best Smartphone display [it] has tested to date.” Wow, that’s some big praise for a Cupertino’s newest device. One major reasoning behind this is that it found it to have the highest contrast rating of any mobile device, and adding to that has improved screen reflectance (or lack thereof), and “significantly improved color quality and accuracy.”
This praise, of course, comes with a few shortcomings as well. What would be an iPhone launch without some though. Apparently, the white point (like most smartphones) is still a little blue, and the battery lasts less time when at full brightness. It did however say that was to expect, as the screen is larger, as is the color gamut, yet the battery capacity is relatively the same. I’m sure no one sits there with their phones screen on full brightness all day just waiting for it to die though, so that shouldn’t bother anyone.
I personally love the iPhone display, and agree with DisplayMate that this is the best I’ve seen on a phone. That is coming from a person who has to go to the nearest Verizon/AT&T store to see the newest devices even if I don’t want to buy them. But I’m no expert, so if you wish to read the full run down on why DisplayMate is claiming this, check out the source link below.
