iPhone X LED compares well to Note 8, Pixel 2 XL


By

Tom's Hardware has a head-to-head comparison of the iPhone X LED and displays in the recently released competition Note 8 from Samsung and Pixel 2 XL from Google.

It took Apple an awfully long time to jump on the OLED bandwagon, but as usual, the company knocked it out of the park when it finally made the move. But is it better than the competition? The answer to that question will depend on what you like to see.

If it's realism you want, the iPhone X supremely bright screen and exquisite white balance provide a sense of color accuracy you simply don't get from other handsets. But if you want hues that truly pop, the Galaxy Note 8 is still king. Ironically, Samsung is responsible for producing the OLED panels in both phones, but differences in tuning have resulted in two of the year's very best, albeit very different, smartphone displays.
