Still need another reason to purchase the Samsung Galaxy S5? The South Korean company’s flagship smartphone is making waves in the tech industry, knocking over other big-name competitors like HTC and Apple at every turn.

The Samsung Galaxy S5 was given the title of best smartphone display by

DisplayMate Ranks The Galaxy S5’s Display at The Top published a report on their website saying the Samsung Galaxy S5 is the “the best performing smartphone display that we have ever tested.” Being that DisplayMate specializes in optimizing, calibrating and testing visual displays on electronic devices, it’s safe to say they know a thing or two about smartphone displays. They performed an in-depth analysis of the Galaxy S5’s display to identify its strengths and weakness (spoiler alert: there are no weaknesses found in the report).

Some of the attractive display features noted by DisplayMate include the following:

  • Exceptional level of brightness

  • Dimming mode

  • Improved color management

  • New and improved OLED technology

  • Cinema mode

  • Ambiant lighting

  • Photo mode

  • 1920×1080 screen resolution

  • Diamond pixels (term dubbed from Samsung)

  • Improved viewing angles

  • Uniform screen to reduce shadows and hot spots

About The Samsung Galaxy S5’s Display

It’s important to note that the Samsung Galaxy S5 has the same 2k 1080 x 1920 screen resolution as its predecessor, the Galaxy S4. So, what makes the Galaxy S5’s display shine about the rest? One of the first distinguishable characteristics you’ll notice is the size. The Galaxy S5’s screen is slightly larger at 5.11 inches, whereas the Galaxy S4 was just 5 inches.

But it’s not the size that makes the Galaxy S5’s display stand out from other leading smartphones on the market. According to the DisplayMate report, the Galaxy S5 is approximately 22% brighter than the Galaxy S4 and 13% brighter than the Note 3. Samsung really stepped up their game to create a beautifully bold display that’s easy on the eyes.

The Galaxy S5 also features a dimming mode that reduces the brightness while preserving battery life. Opting to use the device with dimming mode doesn’t have a crippling effect on its brightness, as users can still clearly see the display. And thanks to the dimming mode and other features, the Galaxy S5’s battery performance was 27% higher than the Galaxy S4.
