Display technology over the last few years has really come a long way. Samsung has curved the edges of their displays, and has minimized the bezels. Other OEMs like LG and now Apple have followed suite by getting rid of the display bezels. Display's are now brighter and sharper than ever. Apple has used LCD displays until this year. Their iPhone 8, 8 plus, and iPhone X now feature OLED displays which really do look incredible. Display Mate has now deemed the iPhone X Display as being the Most Innovative and Best Performing display ever.
I have been using the iPhone X for the past few days and when it comes to the display I am actually starting to miss my Galaxy Note 8. For one it doesn't have an ugly notch that gets in the way when viewing various apps in landscape. The iPhone X may have more accurate colors than the Note 8, but I personally prefer more vibrant saturated colors. It just makes the display look more pleasing to me.
When it comes to brightness the Galaxy Note 8 can produce over 1200 nits of brightness, but only for a few pixels. The rest of the display can output up to 560 nits of brightness when auto brightness is turned on and the phone is in direct sunlight. The iPhone X is only able to produce a max brightness of 809 nits for a few pixels. It is able to achieve 634 nits of brightness across the display in Ambient lighting conditions. Either phone can be viewed in outdoor lighting with relative ease.
It is true that the iPhone X may have the higher performing display technically speaking, but it really boils down to personal preference. Do you prefer the strange notched design with muted colors, or do you prefer the sleek bezel free curved display with vibrant saturated colors?
