Screen: the resolution and quality that a flagship deserves
One of the differences between one Note and another was the diagonal and resolution of the screen. Normally carrying the last name “pro” or “plus” carries advantages and in this case we are talking about 6.8 inches and 3,040 x 1,440 pixels of resolution (498 ppi density) compared to the 6.3 and 2,280 x 1,080 pixels of the Note 10 standard. Of course, Newly arrival Mobiles in Bangladesh, both with a new Infinity O screen that places the hole for the front camera in the center and not to one side as we saw in the Galaxy S10.
It is a Dynamic AMOLED panel that comes somewhat cold from the factory and with the slight oversaturation that the manufacturer and/or its users seem to like, but this has its corresponding section in the screen settings . Of course, we will have to give in if we prefer less vivid colors because in order to adjust the temperature and the hue of the whites we will have to set it to “Intense” in terms of saturation.
That is why if we prefer a high (and not very high) saturation level, the Natural mode will suit us, although what should also be corrected is that the temperature adjustment did not give such big jumps and was more gradual. What we can also adjust is the resolution , although his thing is to keep the WQHD+ because the level of sharpness is a delight (and that not many 2019 mobiles reach or exceed this resolution).
Also good at the level of contrast and maximum brightness, which according to the brand reaches 1,200 nits. During the day, when the light hits it brightest and most directly, the maximum brightness level is sufficient, although the automatic brightness adjustment has some problems when going from a brighter environment to a less dark one, Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra 5G Price in Bangladesh, reacting slowly (and on occasion staying short and requiring us to manually pull it up a bit).
Something that One UI
(Samsung’s own layer of software) continues to do is set an automatic brightness adjustment when the battery reaches 5%, similar to LG. This is done for the benefit of preserving autonomy with that low battery level, but it is always too low (even in dim lighting environments) and it will not hurt if it could be deactivated or adjusted.
As it could hardly be otherwise and we have commented, it is a curved screen on both sides . This has aesthetic and functional consequences for which the manufacturer bets from a first advance with the Samsung Galaxy Note Edge and the settlement with the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge in 2015, giving a not so different touch to the design and adding some software functions with which seeks to give some trick at the level of use.
The features aren’t new, staying at the Edge Display and Edge Lighting . In the first place, it is the access and quick functions tab that we can configure quite to our liking, placing the discreet tab on the side we want (by default it is on the right, but when starting the S Pen it will automatically go to the right so as not to interfere with pointer software) and setting which apps and features we prefer to have there.
Obviously the curvature is not necessary for this function and we have previously seen approximations in the form of a tab or a floating globe, but the truth is that it is quite useful if we are used to going from one task to another on a regular basis, being somewhat faster than multitasking, Or if we want to have the contacts or the clipboard more at hand. As with Bixby Home (more on that later), it can be turned off at any time.
Edge lighting is the one that is enabled for certain notifications, such as calls or messaging apps . They have added more customization options and we can configure it to occur in third-party apps in addition to Samsung’s. It is more of an ornament than a utility, except for the case of calls whose lighting is more intense and it is seen with the mobile upside down.
Here’s what the Edge lighting looks like when there’s a notification (Slack).
For the rest, the curvature is an aesthetic resource, as we have said, and it depends more than anything on our preferences and tastes. Trying to be as aseptic as possible, it should be noted that ghost touches don’t usually occur (some when the support thumb touches the screen a lot when holding it in landscape mode) and that the only thing we don’t like is that it still appears on white backgrounds. see that grayish shading on the curve part (as we saw in the S10, although perhaps more discreet).
Something that acts very in favor of the fact that at first glance the front and its screen can be attractive to us is how clear it is . Something favored by that design of the Infinity O, whose window to the camera is much more discreet than in other designs.
Making numbers, the use of the front by the screen is 91% according to GSMArena (92.2% according to the brand). A good figure that is also accompanied by others regarding what the frames occupy and the height that remains for the toolbar due to the presence of the hole.
The hole has an approximate diameter of 4.14 millimeters including the black border, with which the toolbar measures about 6.3 millimeters (7.27 if we count the frame). So that this is not so abstract, we have the references of the HONOR View20 , also with a hole, whose bar was 6.74 millimeters or those of the new Motorola One Action , whose hole is much larger, leaving a bar of 9.96 millimeters ( no frames).
Hence, although it is still somewhat higher than the bars that remain with solutions such as the notch or with a standard frame (taking the 4.72-millimeter OnePlus 6T as a reference or the 5.94-millimeter Xiaomi Mi MIX 3 ), in this case they have managed to do a passable job and don’t give the impression that space is being wasted so much . This bar also has its section in the configuration, which, although it does not integrate a wide range of options, does have something.
