Samsung Galaxy phones typically have killer displays, and the Galaxy S10 could be setting the bar high for future generations. In fact, it's been described to have "the most color accurate display that we have ever tested."
That's according DisplayMate, a company that focuses on screen technologies and creates in-depth and lengthy documents regarding them.
Galaxy S10's Display
The Galaxy S10 recently underwent DisplayMate's test, which it calls a "Display Shoot-Out." The company explains its findings in detail on its website, but to get the gist of it, it says the phone's display is basically "visually indistinguishable from perfect."
"Even with our new tougher grading standards and new tests, the Galaxy S10 receives 100% All Green Very Good to Excellent Ratings in All Categories, earning DisplayMate's highest ever A+ grade," the firm writes.
To sum up its achievements, the phone is setting records in terms of color accuracy, contrast accuracy, intensity scale accuracy, peak luminance, and viewing angle performance.
For the record, the Galaxy S10 has a 6.1-inch Quad HD+ Dynamic AMOLED Infinity-O Display. To be exact, the resolution is 3,040 x 1,440 and delivers 550 ppi. It's also HDR10+ certified.

More About Galaxy S10's Screen
Speaking of the screen, a portion of it spans the in-display ultrasonic fingerprint reader. A recent durability test found out that it can still work properly even when there are heavy scratches present on the display, but when there are cracks, it just couldn't do its job anymore.
For those who don't know, the Galaxy S10 and Galaxy S10 Plus also come with a preinstalled screen protector. If nothing else, this means debris and whatnot are going to have to go through an extra layer of defense before they get a chance to try and damage the display, free of charge on the buyer's side.
