iPhone X tops Galaxy Note 8 to claim the best smartphone display, says DisplayMate | AndroidAuthority. Irony of ironies - Displaymate has rated the iPhone X screen the best it's ever tested, just two months after naming the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 AMOLED screen the best it's ever tested. Of course, the new iPhone X screen was built and supplied to Apple by none other than...wait for it... Samsung. The difference in the testing appears to be Apple's better color calibration techniques. For the rest of us, the differences in screens is just not worth the extra $500. Most modern phone screens are bright and pleasant, and easy on the eyes. This reminds me of the audiophiles who pay thousands of dollars for sound systems that most of us can't even distinguish from our $500 turntables and speakers. Hey, if you want to spend hundreds of dollars more just to tell your friends that you have a better phone screen, have at it. Jeez.
