DxOMark laboratory specialists tested the screen of the Samsung Galaxy S24 smartphone in different operating scenarios. During the tests, the flagship broke out into the top three leaders, scoring the highest score in two major disciplines at once.
The base version of the Samsung Galaxy S24 features a 6.2-inch Dynamic AMOLED 2X display with a resolution of 1080×2340 pixels, a 120Hz refresh rate, and a 19.5:9 aspect ratio.
Tests conducted in various use scenarios allowed experts to outline lists of strengths and weaknesses of the smartphone screen. The first highlighted the following properties:
- Good readability in sunlight thanks to very high peak brightness levels
- Accurate color reproduction in most lighting conditions
- Excellent frame rate control when watching videos or playing games.
The disadvantages included the following features:
- Excessively high brightness level when playing HDR video
- Lack of brightness and detail when working indoors
- Excessive sensitivity to accidental touches
- Artifacts in some operating scenarios due to the lack of anti-reflective coating
- Visible stuttering when resuming video playback.
Despite a number of shortcomings, according to testing results, the basic Galaxy S24 turned out to be the best in the “Readability” and “Sensor Performance” categories. It scored 154 points, sharing second place in the overall ranking with Google Pixel 8 and its Pro version. Among devices in the premium price segment, the smartphone, along with the base Pixel 8, was in first place.
