Huawei Ascend D2 surprisingly scores as best 1080p LCD display, beats HTC One, Sony Xperia Z

The Huawei Ascend D2 has one of the best displays on the market right now beating the screen quality of the HTC One and the Sony Xperia Z, according to experts from DisplayMate. The Samsung Galaxy S4 was not included in this comparison because it uses an AMOLED screen and DisplayMate tested it separately.

The Ascend D2 managed to get more accurate colors than even the HTC One, a phone with a brilliant screen. The problem with the HTC One seems to be that HTC itself is doing image and color processing trying to make it stand out, but in reality ends up with skewed colors. Moreover, the One does not provide an option to turn all this processing off.

Sony’s Xperia Z on the other hand disappoints first and foremost with poor viewing angles as the picture quality degrades noticeably at even 30 degrees. Colors are also off the mark with the Bravia Engine turned on, but at least here there is an option to turn it off.

Overall, the strength of the Ascend D2 comes from Huawei’s Apple-like approach with no additional color processing. Putting the two screens side by side shows a surprising similarity as both are extremely well calibrated and show accurate colors. The images below serve as an illustration to all of this, take a look, you might be surprised.

This is EXACTLY how a growing company can build a loyal base, offering the best in the business. Unfortunately Huawei's home grown chips are too slow. An Ascend D3 with SD800 would be interesting.

After Richard Yu's comment about buying Nokia, I feel like Huawei phone's are just a piece of trash.

That's pretty much what they said about Samsung when Nokia, Motorola and BB were the top three OEMs about 10-15 years ago, also when HTC was just a blip making Windows Mobile, then look what happened. The tide is slowly changing.

Huawei's situation is a lot different from BB, Motorola and Nokia. Nokia being a century old is a true pioneer, Motorola being a japanese company is undeniably a true innovator and a pioneer for decades as well, BB, even they are currently struggling has a lot to offer with regards to the security of their OS, HTC, well, I'll just mention HTC One and HTC Butterfly. Huawei? Meh. They cannot even enter the american market.

BTW the Galaxy S4 got an A overall score which outdoes the One and Xperia Z and matches the iPhone 5 and D2.

That is true, the iPhone 5 and the SGS4 both got excellent scores, but they are not in this comparison because the former is not a 1080p screen and the latter uses an AMOLED display.

Don't even bother, ignorant children will never learn and refuse to learn anything other than thier established brands, too much fox news brainwashing.

I wonder if the Active's LCD screen is as accurate as the amoled display.
