Last week, Google debuted the Pixel 8 series with style. Powered by the new Tensor G3 chipset, the Google Pixel 8 Pro and Pixel 8 bring many improvements. With the new devices, Google introduced the Actua display, which has just achieved the best display title in a new ranking.

To be exact, the Google Pixel 8 Pro with Super Actua display now has the #1 spot in DXOMARK’s display rankings. The regular Pixel 8, with the Actua display, achieves a similar score on the ranking. That means you will be set to get an enhanced viewing experience regardless of which device you pick from the series.

How Does DXOMARK Scores the Smartphone Displays

Similar to other devices tested by DXOMARK, the outlet put the Google Pixel 8 up against six different criteria. And if you were to get a better idea about the DXOMARK’s ranking, you need to have a fair idea about each of these criteria.

Among the criteria, there’s readability. This test determines how easy and comfortable it is to read the content on the screen under different real-life conditions. Then, the outlet tests the color production capability. It determines the capacity of the smartphones to accurately reproduce colors.

Next, the test includes a video test. This test evaluates how the smartphones handle the standard dynamic range (SDR) and high dynamic range (HDR10) videos. Then, there’s the motion test. It sees how well the phones handle dynamic content. Also, the phones go through a touch test, where DXOMARK determines the accuracy, smoothness, and response time.

Lastly, smartphones need to pass the artifacts test. Here, the outlet checks the display’s performance, motion flaws, and image rendering capabilities. It also measures the reflectance and the presence of flicker. And Google Pixel 8 phones passed through all of these criteria with flying colors.
