iPhone 12 Pro Max receives highest ever rating from DisplayMate, “visually indistinguishable from perfect”

The newly released iPhone 12 Pro Max comes with Apple’s latest refinement of their “Super Retina XDR Display”, with slightly thinner bezels and a flat design to match. Units began arriving to customers around November 13th, and DisplayMate, one of the leading display reviewers, has published their analysis of the iPhone 12 Pro Max’s Display, labelling it “virtually indistinguishable from perfect”.

The iPhone 12 Pro Max sets or matches 11 Smartphone Display Performance Records over at DisplayMate, including:

  • Highest Absolute Color Accuracy – Visually Indistinguishable From Perfect.
  • Highest Image Contrast Accuracy and Intensity Scale Accuracy – Visually Indistinguishable From Perfect.
  • Smallest Shift in Color Accuracy and Intensity Scale with the Image Content APL – Visually Indistinguishable From Perfect.
  • Smallest Shift in Image Contrast and Intensity Scale with the Image Content APL – Visually Indistinguishable From Perfect.
  • Smallest Change in Peak Luminance with the Image Content Average Picture Level APL – Visually Indistinguishable From Perfect.
  • Highest Full Screen Brightness for OLED Smartphones
  • Highest Full Screen Contrast Rating in Ambient Light
  • Highest Contrast Ratio
  • Lowest Screen Reflectance
  • Smallest Brightness Variation with Viewing Angle
  • Highest Visible Screen Resolution – 4K does not appear visually sharper on a smartphone

The iPhone 12 Pro Max display meets all of the criteria and requirements for a DisplayMate A+ Grade, earning DisplayMate’s Highest Overall Display Assessment Rating and Highest Display Performance Grade of A+. – DisplayMate

The iPhone 12 Pro Max received DisplayMate’s Best Smartphone Display Award, a blow to those that place a strong emphasis on both high refresh rate and high-resolution displays. The 12 Pro Max is high-res at 458PPI, but there are many phones that can push QHD+ resolutions, a definite step forward – but a noticeable one? The iPhone 13 is rumoured to bring 120Hz for the first time to an iPhone next year, possibly bringing even greater improvements to the iPhone’s best-in-class display. Dolby Vision recording has also come to the iPhone this year, so the 12 Pro Max should look brilliant for HDR content, whether external or natively shot video.
