It probably won't be so surprising that the new Google Pixel 4 XL has an improved display compared to last year's model, but now DisplayMate, the world's leading smartphone display authority, has officially confirmed it and awarded the handset its highest possible score, according to Ausdroid.
In their thorough tests, DisplayMate notes a number of areas where Google Pixel 4 XL outperforms its predecessor, citing a display efficiency upgrade, a peak brightness that is 10% higher and much improved absolute color accuracy.
Interestingly, although the Pixel 4 XL's OLED display may have an overall higher peak power than before, DisplayMate notes a relatively small decrease in brightness when it comes to color shifts in viewing angles and the phone is always on display.
While it is true that DisplayMate awarded Google Pixel 4 XL its highest A + score, it is worth noting that the site awards this score quite arly when it comes to premium screens these days ̵
Still, an improved screen is always good, and we're glad Google left behind the screen issues that plagued Pixel 2 back in 2017.
