The new OLED display on the Samsung Galaxy S9 is the best smartphone display ever tested, according to lab analysis from DisplayMate.
The company notes that the Galaxy S9 delivers consistent Top Tier display performance and is the first display to receive All Green ratings in all of its lab test and measurement categories.
Instead of just focusing on pushing the OLED hardware performance levels even higher for the Galaxy S9, Samsung has concentrated on significantly enhancing and optimizing the on-screen Absolute Picture Quality and Absolute Color Accuracy of the OLED display by implementing precision factory display calibration, moving the overall Galaxy S9 display performance to Outstanding levels, and setting many new Display Performance Records, including Absolute Color Accuracy that is Visually Indistinguishable From Perfect, and almost certainly considerably better than your existing Smartphone, living room 4K Ultra or HDTV, Tablet, Laptop, and computer monitor based on our detailed Lab measurements.
