Joshua Ho, AnandTech:
While AMOLED has traditionally struggled with luminance in situations such as the web browser and light-themed applications, Samsungâ€™s Galaxy S5 and S5 LTE-A Broadband have shown that itâ€™s possible to achieve levels of brightness approaching some of the brightest RGB-stripe LCDs. As the brightness of the Lumia 930 is about equal to the new Moto X, I suspect we’re looking at the Galaxy S4/Note 3 generation of panels.
The Moto X (2nd Gen, 2014) posted a max brightness of 242 nits on SpectraCal CalMAN 5. Quite low.
Contrast is still incredible, but I can still see the purple smearing effect that comes from unlit to lit pixels.
We see that the display is just a bit too red, and that most of the luminance is coming from red and green.
Display lifetime and battery life were more important than color accuracy.
Thereâ€™s really not much that the Moto X can accurately display in sRGB as just by pushing the gamut too far, even if there wasnâ€™t saturation compression for some colors, the large gamut will cause distortion of all colors within the gamut triangle.
