The Google Pixel 5 screen has been under review by the DxOMark site. So, is the screen of the phone, which is famous for its camera, so successful?
The DxOMark site, famous for camera reviews, has recently started testing smartphone screens. When it comes to screen reviews, the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra is currently the top winner of the site’s reviews. Finally, Google Pixel 5 was included in the list.
Before moving on to the screen evaluation, we can say that Google withdrew from the hardware race with Pixel5. Let us state that in the latest Pixel phone, where the search engine giant focuses on the software side rather than the hardware, the screen is far below expectations.
DxOMark’s evaluation, Pixel 5, scored 74 points, falling behind even some mid-segment phones, let alone the flagship phones; One of them is Vivo X51 5G. Considering the price of $ 699, it should be noted that this screen evaluation does not suit the Pixel 5.
Google Pixel 5 display features
Before moving on to DxOMark’s evaluation about the screen, let’s remember the screen features of Pixel 5.
- OLED screen
- Size: 6.0 inches (~ 86% screen-to-body ratio)
- Dimensions: 144.7 x 70.4 x 8 mm (5.70 x 2.77 x 0.31 inches)
- Resolution: 1080 x 2340 pixels
- Aspect ratio: 19.5: 9, ~ 432 ppi
- Refresh rate: 90 Hz
In the evaluation, it is stated that the screen in Pixel 5 adopts ambient light well, has good touch sensitivity and there is no frame drop / shake in videos. Although these are written as plus to the screen digit, the minuses seem more.
First, the light level of the screen appears to be very low in low light scenarios. In addition, the legibility ratio to increase the illumination under sunlight changes the color of the images too much. Other downsides include low brightness and contrast when watching videos, stuttering during games, and slow light transitions.
