Samsung Galaxy Note 9 is official, and many are arguing that it doesn’t exactly serve as a substantial upgrade over its predecessor. While it maybe true to an extent, there is no denying that the smartphone comes with one of the best hardware featured on a portable device. This is now being proven by DisplayMate, which recently rated the Galaxy Note 9’s screen to be the best one ever.

The Samsung Galaxy Note 9 comes with a 6.4-inch Super AMOLED display, which features a resolution of 1440×2960 pixels, and an aspect ratio of 18.5:9. After running intensive tests on it, DisplayMate stated in its report that the Galaxy Note 9 screen managed to get very good to excellent scores in almost all categories, making it the highest scoring smartphone with an A+ grade.

Not just that, Samsung has also managed to raise the screen brightness to 710 nits, which is 27 percent higher than the Galaxy Note 8. The screen also offers the largest color gamut recorded at 113 percent DCI-P3, and 142 percent sRGB / Rec.709. It’s stated to have the highest contrast ratio as well, which is mentioned as “Infinite”. The screen is also said to have the smallest variations to viewing angles compared to other smartphones in the past.

In its report the website stated, “The Galaxy Note 9 is the most innovative and high-performance smartphone display that we have ever Lab tested, breaking and establishing many new Display Performance Records that are listed above. The Galaxy Note 9 delivers uniformly consistent all around Top Tier Display Performance and receives All Green (Very Good to Excellent) Ratings in All of the DisplayMate Lab Test and Measurement Categories.”

This possibly makes the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 one of the best devices for media consumption. The website further states that the screen on the new flagship also trumps the one featured on Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+. That said, the two smartphones are the only devices to receive an All Green rating in All categories in DisplayMate’s test.
