The Samsung Galaxy S24 Ultra has claimed the top spot for the best smartphone display on DXOMark. This continues Samsung’s long-standing leadership in display technology for its own devices and displays sold to competitors. The DXOMark scores indicate Samsung saved its best panel innovation for its flagship S24 family.

The Galaxy S24 Ultra has a 6.8″ Quad HD+ Dynamic AMOLED 2X display with a 120Hz refresh rate, 2,600 nits of peak brightness, HDR10+ support, and Gorilla Glass Armor protection.

Across Six Metrics, Galaxy S24 Ultra Leads the Pack

Galaxy S24 Ultra DXOMark Display Ranking

The Galaxy S24 Ultra earned an overall score of 155 from DXOMark, winning its coveted “Gold” rating for exceptional, best-in-class performance. Specifically, the S24 Ultra scored 161 in readability, even in bright outdoor conditions, 156 in motion clarity, 148 in color accuracy, 162 in touch responsiveness, 152 in video playback, and 148 in low visual artifacts.

DXOMark did note the S24 Ultra screen can seem uncomfortably bright in low-light situations. Still, its top-tier scores across readability, motion, video, and touch set a new bar for premium phone displays.

Pixel 8 Series Ties with Galaxy S24 and S24+

DXOMark bestowed the same Gold rating and overall 154 score to both the Galaxy S24 and S24+ displays. Like the Ultra, DXOMark called out excellent outdoor readability and color reproduction as strengths, while low-light brightness was a drawback. In specific metrics, the S24 and S24+ scored 163 in readability, 152 in motion, 160 in color, 170 in touch, 148 in video, and 117 in artifacts.

Somewhat surprisingly, Google’s new Pixel 8 series matched the Galaxy S24 and S24+ overall score of 154, with the same Samsung display panel technology embedded.
