DisplayMate has awarded the Pixel 3 XL with an A+ rating – the highest rating DisplayMate’s given to a smartphone. The company, known for in-depth analysis of display, stated that the Pixel 3 XL’s OLED display delivered uniformly consistent all-around Top Tier Display Performance.
The Pixel 3 XL earned ‘Very Good’ to ‘Excellent’ ratings in every single display metric. Notably, the Pixel 3 XL has become the third phone (the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 and Samsung Galaxy Note 9 are the other two phones) to earn high praise for its excellent display.
The findings reveal that the Pixel 3 XL uses Sub-Pixel Rendering, that further enhances image sharpness since the individual red, green and blue sub-pixels are “treated as independently addressable image elements” and are not combined together into fixed pixels.
In addition, the Pixel 3 XL display has been rated to 1.1JNCD (Just Noticeable Colour Difference) which is claimed to be visually “indistinguishable from perfect” and considerably better than “any mobile display,” monitor, UHD TV etc.
