The iPhone 14 Pro Max is the latest flagship from Apple and, as usual for the brand’s devices, it comes with an excellent screen.

Now, the smartphone has passed the DisplayMate screen tests with an excellent result, as it has obtained an overall grade of A+ in the tests.

According to DisplayMate the iPhone 14 Pro Max has a 2,300 nits peak brightness and infinite contrast ratio. Although Apple specifies a maximum brightness rating of 2,000 nits for the iPhone 14 Pro Max, testing revealed 2,300 nits and the lowest screen reflectance recorded by DisplayMate (4.5%).

Testing also revealed the highest contrast ratio in ambient light. There are a few test components that resulted in near perfect scores, such as white color accuracy, absolute color accuracy, image contrast accuracy, intensity scale, and peak luminance.

In all, the iPhone 14 Pro Max set 15 screen records:

  • Ultimate white color accuracy (0.2 JNCD for sRGB and 0.2 JNCD for DCI-P3) – Visually indistinguishable from perfection.
  • Highest absolute color accuracy (0.5 JNCD for sRGB and 0.5 JNCD for DCI-P3) – Visually indistinguishable from perfection.
  • Minor change in color accuracy with APL (0.3 JNCD for sRGB and 0.3 JNCD for DCI-P3) – Visually indistinguishable from perfection.
  • Lowest maximum color shift with APL (0.9 JNCD for sRGB and 0.8 JNCD for DCI-P3) – Visually indistinguishable from perfection.
  • Highest image contrast and intensity scale accuracy (2.22 Gamma) – Visually indistinguishable from perfection.
  • Less change in image contrast and intensity scale with APL (0.00 Gamma) – Visually indistinguishable from perfection.
  • Smallest change in peak luminance with APL (1 percent) – Visually indistinguishable from perfection.
  • Highest full screen brightness for OLED smartphones (1026 nits at 100% APL).
  • Maximum peak screen brightness (2,307 nits for low APL in high ambient light).
  • Maximum contrast ratio (infinity).
  • Lowest screen reflectance (4.5%).
  • Higher contrast ratio in ambient light (228 for APL 100% and 513 for maximum brightness).
  • Less brightness variation with viewing angle (25% at 30 degrees).
  • Less white color variation with viewing angle (1.5 JNCD at 30 degrees).
  • Maximum viewable screen resolution 2.8K (2796×1290) – 4K does not look visually sharper on a smartphone.

The iPhone 14 Pro and 14 Pro Max models have displays produced by Samsung, so the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra could also achieve stellar performance on DisplayMate.
