    Why is it a better article? It is full of speculation and doesn’t actually measure anything. The s6 comparison comment is laughable as the actual sub pixel layout of the iPhone X is a lot different than the s6. In fact the note 8 and s6 layout has s more similar.

    This has already been discussed, I think most people are waiting for Displaymate to review the iPhone X. A few things in that Tomsguide article don't add up at all.

    How are display modes going to impact viewing angles? Did you even read the article linked to this thread?

    At the end of the day, your pro "Samsung over anything else" mentality should be happy that Apple's panel, using Samsung's technology scored so well. You likely also are aware that new Samsung devices are right around the corner, and the crown will clearly be on your team at that point for likely all of 2018.

    I would agree that the X having the Best in the world is not likely, Especially since Samsung puts so much into the S8 and Note 8 Screens for their own devices.

    The article was completely bias. It didn't look at display modes for color accuracy for the Note 8. Viewing angles is to the eye of the beholder. There are more color shifts in the iphone X than the S8 or Note 8. You are better waiting for displaymate reviews. Leaving out information about resolution, ppi, display modes, customization for a cooler or warmer display etc. in the galaxy series really shows that the article was completely bias. In person, anyone who sees both displays knows the s8 and note 8 is impressive compared to the iphone X's display which is really a S6 panel with some Apple customizations. Hey, my girlfriend who sleeps next to me every night has the iphone X and even she said it cannot compete with the Note 8's screen. Happy iPhone Day....

    I think you’re confusing Samsung’s over-saturated display for a “better display”

    Oversaturated in Adaptive mode....place it in basic mode to see that natural color you apparently are looking for. A display with 4 modes......you should say Wow.....with totally different color gamuts, accuracy, white point, etc......So no confusion on my part. A better display can be placed in more modes, can be customized, can have better resolution, better ppi etc. So maybe you think just natural colors is a better display. You should really read that Note 8 displaymate review for true insight.

    OLED for iphone users is like the second coming of you know who and they have no knowledge of it. I have experienced OLED screens for 10 years, if you haven't...you should not speak.

    I was going to correct you but I can't even be bothered educating people anymore. Have at it!

    Not sure why your girlfriend has to be part of this conversation, But it's great you have someone you are happy with.

    More on topic,

    Actually Viewing angles can be measured objectively, It is one of the tests that Displaymate does, and one of the key wins for Note 8 display when they tested it. The objective portion is measured by drop-off of luminance.

    On that note, I am curious to see what Displaymate says about the X's display. I am not concerned with, nor do I expect it to get top honors, however, I am curious as to what their take on Apple's changes are from the Samsung reference design, and if 3D Touch layering has negatively impacted display accuracy or performance.

    The trouble with putting it in basic mode is that photos that need the extra saturation will be dull. iOS actually reads the colour profile of the image and does proper colour management.

    If the Note 8s display was so god-like and orgasmic, these articles & claims of iPhone Xs display being even comparable shouldn’t exist.
    If the Notes 8s display is leagues above current technology, every impression of the IPhone X screen should be:
    “This looks terrible. This looks like a joke.”

    That's what photo display mode is for. Another display mode on the note 8.

    Apple has the media, reviewers, and press in line as usual. You know that. You go to Best buy and compare the iPhone X to the note 8 for yourself and see....it easily proves the point. My girlfriend is sitting with her iPhone x display right next to me and I can tell you it has nothing on the note 8's display.

    I reckon the iPhone X destroys all competition. It’s bloody. It’s brutal. The X is an arm bar in the first second of the fight.

    Unless it’s just another new smartphone.

    I vote on that last sentence.

    I looked at one tonight and aside from the notch, it looked like every other OLED device I've seen recently.

    Thats because the difference between OLED panels is not huge, they all look pretty damn good. Most people would struggle to tell the difference between say an iPhone X and Note 8 display. For example the Note 8 is running very low delta values to the sRGB colour gamut, its extremely accurate (in Basic colour mode)

    iPhone x oled screen is excellent no doubt. But it's not the best. Galaxy s8 has a much better display. The display is gorgeous.

    Samsung limits itself, it wants to control your brightness. Before i purchased an iphone i compared my note 5, my buddies galaxy s7 and an iphone 6 plus. Both of us had to start adjusting settings so we could understand why the iphone looked better with an lcd screen. Ill also never miss samsung warning me everytime i turn the volume up on my phone. Its so annoying when you're trying to turn the music to full volume with the screen off and it wont let you until you look at a warning about sound levels.

    Color modes are total BS. Color is only one, true, color. Using a display mode that blanket adjusts colors on a screen to anything aside from the natural color, which should be default, is taking you further away from true color. It’s not a hard concept.

    Define "True Colour". There are plenty of colour standards. Samsung provide the option to hit the sRGB standard but also have the option for a more dynamic option.

    Pantone CMYK. By the very definition of it, digital color that gets the closest to Pantone CMYK is true color. sRGB seems to be on a solid path. But color modes that directly head away from that are selling a false bill.

    Do you even know what CMYK is? It is used in printing (I am a prepress operator by trade) and it is not a colour standard, the standard that most CMYK printing aims for is ISO 12647/2

    Tv's, phone screens ect are RGB. sRGB is a Colour space which most phone tend to target.

    I compared the iPhone X with my Galaxy S6 edge+. I am not an Android fanboy... I am very impressed by the iPhone X and think the overall quality control is higher than Android from end to end. That being said, my opinion (being as objective as possible) was that the S6 edge+ was noticably sharper (higher DPI) and the colors were more neutral. The iPhone (with Night Shift off) had warmer colors and didn't look as crisp as the Galaxy. In addition, due to the lower DPI on the iPhone, the pentile subpixel arrangement was more noticeable than on the Galaxy.
