Apple recently launched its all-new iPhone 12 models, which are now available for purchase. The high-end model launched by the company is the iPhone 12 Pro Max and it apparently has the best smartphone display so far.
DisplayMate has published its review of the iPhone 12 Pro Max display and has ranked it with the highest-ever Display Performance Grade of A+. It has also bestowed it with the “Best Smartphone Display” award.
Apart from that, what’s impressive is that the smartphone managed to hit a milestone by having 11 instances of breaking a record or matching an existing one. For comparison, the iPhone 11 Pro launched last year matched or set nine performance records for the screen.
Here is a list of smartphone display record set by the Apple iPhone 12 Pro Max.
- Highest: Absolute Color Accuracy (0.9 JNCD) – Visually Indistinguishable From Perfect.
- Highest: Image Contrast Accuracy and Intensity Scale Accuracy (2.19 Gamma) – Visually Indistinguishable From Perfect.
- Smallest: Shift in Color Accuracy and Intensity Scale with the Image Content APL (0.2 JNCD) – Visually Indistinguishable From Perfect.
- Smallest: Shift in Image Contrast and Intensity Scale with the Image Content APL (0.00 Gamma) – Visually Indistinguishable From Perfect.
- Smallest: Change in Peak Luminance with the Image Content Average Picture Level APL (1 percent) – Visually Indistinguishable From Perfect.

- Highest: Contrast Ratio (Infinite).
- Lowest: Screen Reflectance (4.8 percent).
- Smallest: Brightness Variation with Viewing Angle (27% at 30 degrees).
- Highest: Visible Screen Resolution 2.8K (2778×1284) – 4K Does Not appear visually sharper on a Smartphone.
However, there’s one aspect where the display of the iPhone 12 Pro Max lacks behind the competition is the refresh rate. While other companies have adopted a 90Hz, 120Hz, and even 144Hz refresh rate, this phone comes with the standard 60Hz refresh rate.
On this matter, DisplayMate says that it should be fine for most applications because of the very fast Response Time of the OLED display, and the very fast CPU and GPU processors on the iPhone 12 Pro Max.
To summarise the phone’s display specifications, the iPhone 12 Pro Max features a 6.7-inch Super Retina XDR screen that offers 2778 x 1284 pixels screen resolution, 1200 nits peak brightness, 458ppi pixel density, and 2,000,000:1 contrast ratio.
