Top Android Mobile Phones with HDR 10 or Dolby Vision Display Tech

Smartphones have come a long way over the years. From “128 x 128” pixel displays in the Nokia 3200 to “3840 x 2160” pixel display phones with HDR 10. The evolution of display tech over the last decade has been tremendous. 4K mobile displays or phones with HDR 10 hasn’t been mainstream yet. Experts think that 4K on a mobile screen is overkill.

I still remember a similar story around FHD 1080 displays to be overkill for smartphones a couple of years ago. In today’s time, 1080 screen-displays have become mainstream. Will the same thing happen to 4K mobiles display’s as well? Time will tell.

But when it comes to HDR or “High Dynamic Range,” displays it is an entirely different scenario. With the help of HDR compliant displays, we are expected to see an expanded color gamut and a higher contrast range. The color reproduction is crisp and clear. The lighter and darker shades are further apart, reproducing a higher contrast.

It is a natural evolution from the current SDR (Standard Dynamic Range) technology that we see in today’s displays. We all got our first hands-on with HDR in photography. Skilled photographer merged three different images shot with different exposure settings. The combined output resulted in a beautiful contrasty image. Imagine the same for motion pictures and videos. It is just a stunning visual treat to our eyes.

Here is a quick comparison of the different standards in the table below:

FormatsHDR10Dolby VisionHDR10+
Peak Brightness Levels4,000 nits10,000 nits4,000 nits
Color Bit Depth10-bit (8 bit earlier)12-bit10-bit
Meta-dataStaticDynamic or Frame by FrameDynamic or Frame by Frame
LicenseOpen-source (OSS)LicenseOpen-source (OSS)

So to summarize, here are the main highlights for HDR tech.

  • It offers more color depth of either 10 Bit or 12 Bit per channel.
  • Minimum brightness of 1000 cd/m2 complying with the “Ultra HD Premium Standard.”
  • HDR supported content (Games and Videos) that will support the new full-color spectrum.

Currently, there are two HDR standards in the market.

  • Dolby Vision with 12 Bit Color Depth (Dynamic Metadata)
  • HDR10 open standard with 10 Bit Color Depth (Static Metadata)

As you can see, HDR tech is not dependent on the display size or resolution, but rather its a standard for displays of all types. As for mobile phones with HDR 10, we had the first taste of it in the now extinct Samsung Galaxy Note 7. But due to its faulty battery, Samsung had to discontinue the phone as we all know.

Phones with HDR 10

The brilliant display of the Galaxy Note 7 was overshadowed by its battery problem, which was unfortunate. However, HDR displays are back in 2017 from other top manufacturers. What we think of this is a positive sign since we all know that HDR is the future of all display standards, both big and small.

Right now, there are only a handful of phones from top manufacturers that have one at least one smartphone with HDR10 support. So we decided to compile them into a list. So let us explore the list of mobile phones with HDR 10 support.

Top Phones with HDR 10 or Dolby Vision Support

Most of the phones on this list support the HDR10 open standard with fixed bitrates as opposed to Dolby Vision, which is incorporated on the LG phones. Except for the Nokia 7.1, almost all of them are AMOLED displays. So, let’s check them out!

<2018 List>

1. Samsung Galaxy Note 7: (Discontinued By Samsung)

Phones with HDR 10

We kick off this list with the now-extinct Samsung Galaxy S7. So everything about this phone is in the past tense. The first thing you would have noticed when you held this phone in your hand is the brilliant display. The 5.7″ “Quad-HD” SAMOLED display with HDR10 only surprises you. The entire user experience is butter smooth without any hiccups or stuttering.

With top of the line Octa-Core CPU, fast charging over USB-C, and a 64 GB UFS 2.0 internal storage made it one of the best phablets of 2016. Too bad, this beauty did not last long due to faulty batteries. Here is a quick spec sheet below:

Buy From Amazon USA Buy From Amazon UK Buy From Amazon India

At $1000, this phone’s not really what you would call cheap. But the feature that stands out the most is its brilliant screen. The 4K display with 801 pixels per inch is something that can be looked under an electron microscope. However, the lack of 4K mobile content somewhat downplays the brilliance of its screen to an extent. As expected, all other specifications are top-notch on this phone. Snapdragon 835, UFS 2.0 based internal storage, IP68 certified water resistance are some of its main features.

The other distinguishing feature of this phone is its camera. Sony went all out with the camera on this one, and the image quality certainly exceeded our expectations. The 19-megapixel Gyro based EIS takes smooth videos without a glitch. The 3230 mAh battery, however, is a disappointment. The screen uses up almost 40% of the battery, and a larger one would have helped. Here are it’s specifications:

LG’s latest 2017 flagship comes with a  5.7-inch QHD+ display, with a resolution of 1440×2880 pixels. The HDR tech gives you deeper colors and a wider color range. However, when you start comparing this flagship with other flagships, you will be a tad disappointed with the screen. Also, unlike other flagships, this phone does not come with Qualcomm’s latest Snapdragon 835 processor.

Instead, it comes with the older Snapdragon 821 processor, which is quite a disappointment, especially to the loyal LG fans. LG has been experimenting with their phones a lot, and this year is no exception. The company changed the camera set up this year with a dual 13 MP camera setup (One Wide-angle). With optical image stabilization, handheld video recording is a breeze.
