According to the Android Authority, 2019 is arguably the hardest year yet to pick a truly standout handset. There are plenty of worthy devices across a variety of price points. However, that doesn’t mean we haven’t been able to crown a champion this year.
Below are list of the recognised 2019 Best of Android Display Phone, but one has to emerge the winner.
- Google Pixel 4
- Google Pixel 4 XL
- Samsung Galaxy S10
- OnePlus 7T Pro
Display quality has come leaps and bounds this year, offering not just better-looking displays but also growing support for 90Hz and higher refresh rates. In fact, three out of our top four picks offer 90Hz displays for smooth scrolling. Although that’s not actually why these phones did the best, that all comes down to display accuracy.
As we noted earlier in the year, the Google Pixel 4, Pixel 4 XL, and the Oneplus 7T Pro finally offer Samsung some competition in terms of display quality. While the results were all very close (within 1% in our scoring), it’s the Google Pixel 4 that comes out just on top. The handset offers the most accurate color temperature and gamma results out of all of this year’s smartphones, making it a must-buy for on-the-go film and TV binging (as long as you keep a charger nearby). The Pixel 4 XL offers similarly excellent quality, but its panel doesn’t quite match its smaller sibling’s white balance accuracy or peak brightness for outdoor viewing.
OnePlus deserves special mention this year for really upping its game in terms of display quality with the 7T Pro. Hence a top four rather than awarding two of the top three to Google. The regular OnePlus 7T and the OnePlus 7 also score pretty highly for display quality and are marked improvements on the previous generation.
Any of these four make for great-looking handsets, but it’s the Pixel 4 that wins the award for Best of Android display this year.
Congratulations the winner!
