How good is the Samsung Galaxy S5's screen?

Well, apparently, it's the best one ever made. Which we suppose is pretty good.

According to experts DisplayMate, the S5's 5.1-inch OLED is the finest screen in existence on a smartphone.

DisplayMate said:

"The Galaxy S5 has the latest evolution of Samsung OLED displays since we tested the Galaxy Note 3, which launched in October 2013, and the Galaxy S4, which launched in April 2013. Those results together with the Lab tests and measurements below show that the Galaxy S5 display is a major improvement over the Galaxy S4 and a significant improvement over the Galaxy Note 3."

The new screen is no better in terms of pure resolution but the S5's display has a number of key improvements, DisplayMate said. Instead it highlights the impressive brightness, new 'super dimming' mode, multiple screen modes and higher colour accuracy.

"Based on our extensive Lab tests and measurements, the Galaxy S5 is the Best performing Smartphone display that we have ever tested. It has a long list of new records for best Smartphone display performance including: Highest Brightness, Lowest Reflectance, Highest Color Accuracy, Infinite Contrast Ratio, Highest Contrast Rating in Ambient Light, and smallest Brightness Variation with Viewing Angle. The Galaxy S5 has raised the bar for top display performance up by another notch – an impressive achievement for OLED technology!"
