The iPhone 11 Pro has the best display on a smartphone, says DisplayMate

What you need to know

  • The iPhone 11 Pro's Super Retina XDR display is a true winner.
  • DisplayMate gave it its highest ever A+ rating and crowned it with the "Best Smartphone Display Award."
  • It praises its benefits such as absolute color accuracy, smallest shift in color accuracy and full screen brightness.

One of the big new improvements in the iPhone 11 Pro is the new Super Retina XDR display. Among its major features are the continuous 800 nits of brightness, peak brightness of 1200 nits and 2 million to one contrast ratio.

Apple calls it a pro display and DisplayMate agrees, awarding it its "highest ever A+ rating" and crowned it with the "Best Smartphone Display Award."

Among the notable highlights of the display are its absolute color accuracy (0.9 JNCD), smallest shift in color accuracy (0.3 JNCD), full-screen brightness for an OLED panel, HDR peak brightness (1,290 nits), highest contrast ratio (infinite), and lowest screen reflectance (4.5%).

The iPhone XS won the same recognition last year and it seems Apple made the necessary upgrades to earn similar praise.

DisplayMate goes into greater detail about all the benefits of new Super Retina XDR display on the iPhone 11 Pro that's worth checking giving a read.
