Samsung Galaxy S9's screen given 'A+' rating by DisplayMate

Dr. Raymond M. Soneira, president of DisplayMate Technologies Corporation, has concluded that Samsung's Galaxy S9 packs the best performing smartphone display they have ever tested. This is also the lowest camera aperture seen in a smartphone till date.

The biggest feature, however, is the Dual Aperture or variable aperture that allows the primary lens to switch between f/1.5 to f/2.4 depending on lighting conditions. While optics on Samsung flagship phones have mostly been promising over the years, expectations from the Galaxy S9 duo are high considering how rival iPhone X has come up with a redesigned camera setup.

Just like the dual aperture cameras, the Galaxy S9 screen has no obvious weakness, setting or matching a grand total of ten records for things like absolute color accuracy, native color gamut, contrast ratio, screen reflectance, and brightness variation with viewing angle. The smaller Galaxy S9 uses the same primary camera as the S9+ but misses out on the secondary lens that helps the device get bokeh effect that requires a telephoto lens. On the whole, the S9 Plus received an incredible score of 104 for photos and 91 for videos, which is what gives the average score of 99. Both the lenses on Galaxy S9+ support OIS. According to a report from the company, the S9 screen not only gets the award for Best Performing Smartphone but also gets the company's "highest ever A+ rating".

For videos, there is now a new Super Slow-mo feature that increases the shutter speed to a super quick 960fps (frames per second) that enables users to slow the action down by four times.
