In recent years, it's seemed that every time a new Samsung flagship smartphone has come out, DisplayMate has rated the screen as the best it'd ever tested. It happened with the Galaxy S7 and Note 7, it happened with the Note 8, and now it's happened with the Galaxy S9.

Testing firm DisplayMate has issued a report on the Galaxy S9 screen, deeming it "the best-performing smartphone display that we have ever tested" and giving it an A+ rating. "Samsung continues systematically improving OLED displays," DisplayMate says in its report.

The report goes on to praise Samsung for its efforts to optimize the picture quality and color accuracy of its OLED display with factory display calibration. DisplayMate also found that the GS9 has the lowest screen reflectance level of any smartphone it's ever measured, which is important for screen readability, picture quality, and color accuracy in ambient light. Viewing angles are good, too, with DisplayMate saying that the GS9 has a "relatively small decrease" in brightness and color shift when viewing the screen at an angle.

The Galaxy S9 features a 5.8-inch 2960x1440 Super AMOLED display. Samsung has been using Super AMOLED panels in its flagship smartphones for years, and it's clear that the company sees its displays as a big way to help its phones stand out from the competition.
