After the Galaxy Note 8 was anointed the title of the ‘best display ever made of a smartphone’ two months ago, Samsung has once again claimed this title. However this time it is not for its own smartphone but the Apple iPhone XDisplayMate has awarded that title and an A+ grade to Apple iPhone X’s display.

According to DisplayMate, the iPhone X has the highest color accuracy of any smartphone display, the highest full-screen brightness for OLED smartphones, the highest full-screen contrast rating in ambient light, the highest contrast ratio, the lowest screen reflectance, and the smallest brightness variation with viewing angle changes.

As mentioned, Samsung’s Galaxy Note 8 flagship has also gotten the A+ grade in a recent test, and to be fair it is better than the iPhone X’s screen in some aspects, such as higher screen brightness for small portions of the screen area, but the iPhone X is the better screen overall. While both the smartphone’s display is manufactured by Samsung, the iPhone X’s display does just a bit better it terms of color accuracy. ALSO READ: Apple iPhone X top notch can be removed with this app
