Google can be proud of these test results and users can look forward to great hardware.
Google has installed two new smartphone displays in its new smartphones and has finally jumped into the top league. The screens are of good quality, but overall they are much brighter than in recent years. With the Pixel 8 Pro, which I’m currently testing, the difference from its predecessor is stark.
But the smaller Pixel 8 also has a much better display and, like its big brother, can outperform all the competition. At least that’s what the latest tests show DXOMarkWhereas both the Pixel 8 smartphones achieved the same score and currently share the top spot in the overall ranking.
It is particularly good at:
- The device is easy to read under all tested conditions.
- Colors are reproduced well under most test conditions.
- Brightness and contrast are perfect for playing HDR10 content.
- The device feels fluid and responsive while scrolling.
This is bad:
- In a bright environment, a pink tint may be visible depending on the direction of the light source.
- Unwanted palm contact with the edge of the device may occur when holding it with one hand.
- Aliasing is noticeable in video games.
