Higher brightness, lower reflectivity, better viewing angles and better power consumption
As per the Display mate, the new Samsung Galaxy S5 is doing pretty well as far as the display is concerned and just a couple of days back, it was titled as the best performing display there has ever been on a smartphone. Now it gets the Excellent score on its display by display mate who claim that the S5's display is the best one they have seen. Seeing the response on the display, Samsung decided to shed some light on how the display is performing better than the predecessors.
The features which make the S5 display stand out from the rest include higher brightness, lower reflectivity, better viewing angles, improved contrast ratio and even better power consumption. Talking about the brightness, which is the main feature of any display, the Galaxy S5 can achieve maximum brightness of 351 nits which is 22% more than what S4 could achieve and 13% better than the Note3. The reflectivity of the panel can reach a low of 4.5% which accoutns for the improved outdoor visibility. You might think that the pixel density is surprising at 432 ppi because it is lesser than the 441 ppi of the Galaxy S4 but the razor sharp and Diamond Pixel arrangement in its AMOLED panel is better than Pentile and this is what helps to reduce aliasing and artifacts.
Moreover, the screen of the Galazy S5 is 27% more efficient than the S4 because for the same level of brightness, the S5 will consume 18% lesser power without even activating the Ultra Power Saving Mode, which sets the background to black, which given the AMOLED nature of the panel doesn’t light up pixels.
