iPhone 6 Plus tops DisplayMate tests

Dr. Raymond Soneira is a stickler when it comes to the quality of the displays on tech devices. He let Apple have it when the iPad Mini with Retina Display didn’t cover the entire sRGB color gamut, but he’s really impressed by the iPhone 6 Plus display:

Based on our extensive Lab tests and measurements, the iPhone 6 Plus is the Best performing Smartphone LCD display that we have ever tested. It delivers uniformly consistent all around Top Tier display performance. The iPhone 6 Plus is only the second Smartphone display (LCD or OLED) to ever get all Green (Very Good to Excellent) Ratings in all test and measurement categories (except for Brightness variation with Viewing Angle, which is the case for all LCDs) since we started the Display Technology Shoot-Out article series in 2006, an impressive achievement for a display. The iPhone 6 Plus has raised the bar for top LCD display performance up by a notch.

Visit the DisplayMate site for lots and lots of links, charts, and idiosyncratic writing.
