    There seems to be a few links to confirm... I thought our screen goes double the brightness...?
    Just disappointed if true that Samsung would supply a better screen to their competitors...

    Lol. I do not care if the iPhone x has a brighter screen than the note8. I wouldn't be able to handle a phone brighter than my note8. Samsung can sell their stuff to whoever they want. They making money from it lol.

    The Note 8 can go brighter under the overdrive thing on auto brightness. But the iPhone can go brighter on manual setting.

    Apple gave the specifications to Samsung. They want a brighter screen. But we're talking AMOLED here, brighter means more susceptible to burn in. Basically, the iPhone is cranking it up to 500/700 nits, more than 50% of screen limits. The Note 8 goes to 400/1200 nits, less than half. Less strain on the LEDs.

    The iPhone has a more color accurate screen though, even on basic mode. To date the most color accurate screen Samsung has launched based on displaymate scores is the S7.

    Honestly I think we're in for a whole lot of new iPhone users with burn in experiences.

    I have no issue with brightness on the Note 8 so I don't see why I would care if the competitor has it brighter- like another poster said, more susceptible to burn in so good for them

    I never go 100% on my N8, 50% is fine for me in direct sun.
    Not an issue at all.

    Brighter... maybe true... NIT numbers are out there. But that doesn't make it better. It's a balance and each manufacturer chose their specs for their reason. For the DPI patrol, the Note has more DPI than the X... so I guess that can make it a better screen?

    But maybe because the Note screen has more DPI maybe they can't push the brightness without effecting battery life as well as longevity of the screens color quality or burn in?? They're both Samsung made screens so Apple could probably asked for the same screen, same DPI, etc... but they have different priorities like color accuracy and brightness.

    Seeing the X screen in person it has the vibrant look that reminded me of the Note screen and hadn't seen a screen that could compare to the Notes until now. It's a nice looking screen.

    No reason to be brighter, I have to dim my note 8 screen down. Brighter isn't always better.

    The X screen does end up brighter in auto brightness for the same light conditions. That's what Apple has gone for with their screen. Can't say it's necessarily better at all times, coz the whites went too bright and didn't feel good while browsing a web page.

    But, to each its own. Both are good phones that satisfy their ends users.

    It does bother me that the iPhone X has the better display. I just gotta not care too much about it. But I prefer the Note 8 and android over iOS.

    I don't understand why it would be a surprise... the X is a newer phone even if by a couple of months.

    In those couple of months time things change fast... from having the highest rated camera the Pixel has jumped the Note and now has the best camera and now the iPhone first camera hitting over 100 in one of dxomark subscores. The Note actually dropped to 5th on dxomark site.

    https://www.dxomark.com/news/

    The S9 will be out in a few months and the cycle will start again.

    It does bother me that the iPhone X has the better display. I just gotta not care too much about it. But I prefer the Note 8 and android over iOS.

    Better is subjective. If someone wants brighter + more accurate colors, then iPhone works. But if someone wants punchier colors with sharper resolution, then Note 8 is better.

    Not sure where the OP is getting his information from. Must have been an iPhone blog.

    EVERYTHING I seen and read shows this isn't true.

    The same site that the articles saying the Note 8 screen was best is the one that gave the iPhone X the best ever score on its recently released report.

    http://www.displaymate.com/iPhoneX_ShootOut_1a.htm

    But as previously said, it's just a cycle. The S7 had the best screen last year until the iPhone 7 came out, then the S8 came out and it had the best score, then the Note 8 came out, then the iPhone X, you get the drill.

    Brighter does not mean better for me. My Note8 has a 6.3 inch screen compared to a 5.8 inch of the iPhone X. My Note8 has a 2960 X 1440 resolution compared to the 2436 X 1125 resolution of the iPhone X. And my Note8 does not have a notch at the top of the screen. My Note 8 has curved edges.

    There's a test for what people consider prefect? Interesting concept.

    Note 8 has the best screen EVER attached to a power source. This has been proven in rigorous testing and scientific research in the independent labs of DKBDisplay Testers, Inc.

    "The Note 8 has the BEST DISPLAY EVER ATTACHED TO A POWER SOURCE!"

    See? When THEY put things in "quotes" like that, THEY mean it!

    Anyway, Note 8 wins. NEXT!

    Doesn't matter to me. I love the display on my Note 8... There's just more of it. And it's not an iPhone.

    So let's just say one is better... If you were to look at the phones with your eye I promise you they both will look good. They are top notch displays. If one is brighter then the other.. does it truly matter? I don't count brightness as a key thing. As long as I can see it in sunlight that is good enough for me .

    I really don't care. I love the screen on the Note 8 and having experience with a friend's iphone 8--we switched phones for a couple of hours just to see how the other half live--I was only confirmed in my lack of interest in anything iphone. It's the whole ecosystem thing. If my Note is a shade less bright, it's still gorgeous and not Apple.
