The iPhone’s display is the best smartphone screen on the market, with the highest resolution and the least light bleed. But how does it compare to other top smartphones? This guide will take a look at the iPhone 6’s screen compared to other flagship smartphones on the market today, like the LG G4 and Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge Plus. Let’s get started!
The screen resolution
The iPhone 4S, compared with other smartphones, has a much higher resolution than most of its competition. Although manufacturers are making their devices bigger (to compete with tablets), no one has been able to match Apple’s retina display. (The only close competitor is Samsung’s Galaxy S II.) This means that you’ll have a sharper screen and text in most cases when using an Apple phone than you will on most Android-based phones. However, many apps will automatically adjust themselves so they look as sharp as possible on whatever screen they’re displayed on, regardless of whether it’s an HD or SD model.
A comparison of the retina displays
The Samsung Galaxy S5 features a 5.1-inch Super AMOLED display with 1,080-by-1,920 resolution. This yields a pixel density of 432 pixels per inch (ppi), which is much higher than most flagship smartphones in its class—the HTC One (M8) offers 469 ppi, while even Apple’s iPhone 5S and new iPad Air have 326 ppi and 264 ppi, respectively.
The size – is bigger better?
Of course it is! The larger a screen is, the more things you can fit on it at once. If you’re really into watching videos, using a tablet like iPad or an Android tablet might be better for you because you can get more room for apps and video without having to zoom in. But if that’s not your thing, then bigger is better. More information on one screen means less time spent jumping back and forth between windows. Plus if it’s smaller enough (like most phones), you can still carry it around with you everywhere so no extra equipment necessary!
Colors, brightness and contrast ratios
The screen on Apple’s new smartphone has a wider color gamut and is brighter than previous iPhones. But that doesn’t necessarily mean it can render more accurate colors, which depends on how many colors a display can cover in total. Apple says its Retina HD Display covers 125 percent of DCI-P3, a wide color gamut used in digital movie projection. The OLED display on Samsung’s Galaxy S8 covers almost 100 percent of DCI-P3, while Google Pixel and HTC U11 screens are slightly lower at 99 percent coverage.
OLED vs LCD technology
Which mobile screen type is better and why? The short answer: it depends. At their simplest, OLED screens are thinner and more flexible than LCD screens. They can also be made at smaller sizes. LCD screens shine brighter, offer better viewing angles, and have better response times for less blur during fast movements—though OLED displays can compensate for these disadvantages with some clever tricks of their own. Both types of display suffer from similar problems in sunlight or when viewed from an angle; neither one is particularly good at touch sensitivity either. But that doesn’t mean there aren’t differences between them—or that they don’t play important roles in mobile devices where size and battery life are key considerations.
Panels made by Samsung and LG
The iPhone 8, 7, and 6S all have IPS LCD panels that Apple developed in-house. The Samsung Galaxy S8 uses an AMOLED panel, while LG is known for their P-OLED screens. These technologies differ slightly from one another—for example, a Samsung smartphone might use Super AMOLED while an LG device would have IPS with different subpixel arrangement (RGB instead of PenTile). While these differences may be subtle, they have notable effects on screen brightness and clarity. This isn’t really something you need to know right now but it’s good information to keep in mind as you start shopping for a new phone or tablet.
Refresh rates and processing speeds
The Samsung Galaxy S5 has a 5.1-inch screen, with a 1920 x 1080 resolution for 432 ppi (pixels per inch). The LG G3 sports a 5.5-inch screen with a 2560 x 1440 resolution for 538 ppi. So when it comes to pixel density, the G3 has an advantage of about 10%. However, since both screens are very high quality and have excellent viewing angles, we can safely say that they are both superior in terms of quality. Neither is better than the other—they just serve different purposes based on size and other factors.
Which phones have a battery life worth mentioning?
Not many. According to Consumer Reports’ latest smartphone battery life ratings, most of today’s popular smartphones lasted for around eight hours before running out of juice. Apple still leads with its iPhones, which lasted an average of 10.6 hours in their latest tests. Samsung (7.1), HTC (5.7) and Motorola (4.6) were all about average, while Google (4) and Sony (3) lagged behind in terms of battery life performance—though that could change when they update their new phones to Android 5 Lollipop in 2015.
Operating systems explained – iOS 11 vs Android Oreo vs Windows 10 Mobile
You’ve probably heard of some of these devices and operating systems, but chances are you don’t know too much about what they can do. That makes choosing a device tricky, but with a little research you’ll be able to figure out which OS is best for your lifestyle. Which OS is better? What kind of apps does it have? How does its design compare with another device? These are all questions you should ask yourself before picking up your new phone. iOS 11 vs Android Oreo vs Windows 10 Mobile: You’ve probably heard of some of these devices and operating systems, but chances are you don’t know too much about what they can do.
