Last week, Google launched the Pixel 3 and 3 XL and everyone has been excited about it. The Pixel 2 was an amazing device, but was in the news for all the wrong reasons at its launch due to issues with its display panel.
With the Pixel 3, we definitely hope that Google has improvised the panel and has made sure that there will no longer be any shortcomings.
To see how much Google has improved the display, DisplayMate has run some measures and standards to tell us how the Pixel 3 XL display stacks up against the competition.
DisplayMate has shared its findings and has given the Pixel 3 XL an A+ rating, the highest possible. Usually, it is Samsung's flagship phones that get the highest possible rating.
The study is extremely in-depth and hence we've covered the most important points. The new Pixel 3 XL comes with three colour modes: Natural Mode, Boosted Mode, and Adaptive Mode.
According to DisplayMate, "Each Pixel 3 XL OLED display is individually calibrated at the factory. Since the Pixel 3 XL supports two Standard Color Gamuts it performs Accurate Calibrated Color Management so the colours appear correctly and accurately based on the on-screen image content."
In terms of viewing angles, a 30 per cent angle will decrease brightness on a smartphone display by up to per cent. On the Pixel 3 XL, it down to just 28 per cent while the iPhone XS Max comes in at 25 per cent and the Note9 at 27 per cent.

The Pixel 3 XL display has a maximum brightness of 424 nits, while the Note9 is able to produce 700+ nits of peak brightness. But, the Pixel 3 XL has the lowest screen reflectance at just 4.3 per cent, the lowest DisplayMate has ever measured on a smartphone.
The report says, Google has improved the display on multiple quality parameters, including 'Absolute Picture Quality' and 'Absolute Color Accuracy'. This has been achieved by implementing 'Precision Factory Display Calibration',
While nobody is saying the Pixel 3 lineup has THE best display right now, it sure is at par with the competition. As far as having a speciality is concerned, the series already owns the camera department.
