With the growing trend of binge-watching through nights and constantly browsing through social media, the one important thing that your smartphone requires is a good display. But how do you determine which one is better than the other? Many benchmarking companies constantly review smartphones and DXOMARK is one among the leading platforms. Here's the list of the top five smartphones with the best displays.
DXOMARK is a French engineering company and a benchmarking platform that assesses different kinds of displays, cameras, audio, and other parameters of products ranging from smartphones to professional cameras. For display ratings, a number of tests like readability, touch, color, video, motion, and artifacts are performed under controlled lab and real-life situations. The smartphone is then ranked based on the overall scores achieved.
