DisplayMate: The Note 7's OLED display is the best mobile display ever tested

Samsung announced its Galaxy note 7 last week, and our friend Raymond Soneira from Display Mate has published a comprehensive review of the Note 7 display. The Note 7 has a 5.7" 2560x1440 (518 ppi) flexible Super AMOLED dual-edge display - which DisplayMate says is the best performing mobile display ever tested.

This is hardly a surprise - Samsung's OLED displays have been advancing at a very fast rate, and have surpassed the best LCDs on all parameters (except price, that is). Displaymate says that the major display enhancements introduced in the Note 7 include a new wider color gamut and new HDR mode specifically for 4K videos and a record peak brightness of over 1,000 nits.

The Note 7 is also the first smartphone to have both front and back Ambient Light Sensors for significantly improved Automatic Brightness, a blue-light filter mode that allows uses to adjust the amount of blue light emitted from the display.
