Nokia E6: Brightest screen ever tested by GSM Arena, higher pixel density than iPhone 4 retina display

First the Nokia N9 (display bordering on perfection), then Nokia X7 (with brightest AMOLED, second overall only to LG Optimus Black) now Nokia E6-00 gets some accolades for it’s screen.

And it takes two biggies.

1) Dethroning LG Optimus Black, the E6 now has the BRIGHTEST screen ever tested by GSM Arena. What these folks haven’t tested isn’t worth knowing about.

2) Known before but higher pixel density than iPhone 4? By their maths, they’ve worked out 328ppi vs iPhone 4 326ppi. Note this is pixel density, pixels per inch. Total pixels and comfortable pixel count to screen size is also important.

GSM Arena points out E6 will not be put to shame by Blackberry screens. They also note that the capacitive display is as responsive as they come. That’s pretty important for a touch screen. The screen is amongst the best they’ve seen for LCD.

I’ve not had as much comparison with other handsets to E6 as GSM Arena does but I’d agree with them on the counts that the E6-00 screen is very good, very sharp display, extremely bright, very responsive to the touch. Good to know that those praises aren’t just because I like Nokia :p

Interesting that they note brightness difference between 100% and 50% being minimal – hence why most of the time I kept mine at default (usually, I push the screen to 100%). The values they have for white (cd/m2) at E6-00 on 50% brightness (757) is already higher than the LG Optimus Black at 100% (749) At 100%, E6 values are 1004.

Cheers @Nirj_7 for the tip!
