The smartphone has increasingly become an entertainment hub, with streaming apps offering a large share of our favourite shows and movies. To optimise everyone’s experience, manufacturers are increasingly making phones that support the HDR 10 display standard. HDR, or High Dynamic Range, ensures bright highlights and dark shadows are displayed accurately while delivering better colour depth. Particularly, HDR 10 is an HDR standard supported by not just leading smartphones, but also streaming apps for their content. Here are some options available on Amazon that support this standard, while also offering a great combination of other features and specifications.
The OnePlus 8T 5G aims to bring down charging times significantly with its 65 watt Warp Charge feature. In 15 minutes, you can charge its 4800mAh battery to roughly 58 per cent, which, according to the manufacturer, is enough for a day’s worth of normal usage. The 6.55 inch fluid AMOLED display delivers a refresh rate of 120Hz, for buttery smooth visuals. The HDR10+ support combines with the 8,192 levels of automatic brightness to deliver great clarity. The high refresh rate display is backed by the compute power of the Snapdragon 865, which ensures a lag-free experience with your favourite games and apps. UFS 3.1 storage aims for data write speeds three times faster than UFS 3.0, helping the phone deliver a seamless experience.
The Samsung Galaxy S21 features a 6.2-inch Infinity-O display that ensures immersive visuals in a compact form. The immersion is further enhanced by the 120Hz AMOLED panel which keeps the visuals smooth and striking. The camera also delivers some impressive features such as the improved 8K Video Snap that lets you capture high-resolution 32MP stills from your 8K video footage. It can also record extra stable 60 fps videos using the Super Steady mode. Multi-mic recording helps your videos feature your voice and ambient sounds with equal clarity. The software-powered Single Take mode allows you to capture burst shots and multiple video formats (such as slow-mo, loops etc.) with a single tap.
The 108MP sensor on the Mi 10i’s camera array promises a high degree of detail with every picture you click. The Snapdragon 750G chipset under the hood delivers good performance, while also adding 5G compatibility. The 120Hz AdaptiveSync display ensures smooth visuals, and its 240Hz touch sampling rate makes it super responsive. The adaptive refresh rate is optimised to operate between 30Hz to 120Hz depending on the content, thus improving battery life. Speaking of which, the 4820mAh battery packs enough power for most average users. The 33W fast charger works with Dual Split charging technology which helps the phone power up to a full battery within 58 minutes.
The iPhone 12 Pro Max is powered by the A14 Bionic chip, which can deliver great performance irrespective of what you throw at it. The 6.7-inch Super-Retina display promises great visuals. The phone’s design features Ceramic Shield and stainless steel, which ensures better durability. The IP68 water resistance keeps you worry-free about water damage. The smartphone also features a LiDAR scanner that enables better Augmented Reality performance on the smartphone. Both Wide and Ultra-Wide lenses on the smartphone feature night-mode photography, giving you greater freedom with your low-light shots. The camera is also capable of Dolby Vision recording, which helps you capture your memories with great accuracy.
