Does the 12 inch MacBook or the 13 inch MacBook Pro without the touch bar have the better display? Which has better color, higher brightness, sharper image?

Thanks

Display quality is one of those attributes best judged in person. I may find the 13" inferior to the 15" but someone else like the 13"

YMMV, so be sure you're happy with it

If you're talking about the retina 12" MB vs the 2016 13" MBP, the latter has a brighter, higher-contrast screen. But there are bigger differences than the screen.
