Does the Nokia E6 Have the Best Display of Any Smartphone?

The Nokia E6 is Nokia’s first smartphone with a front-facing QWERTY keyboard that combines a touchscreen and the Symbian^3  operating system, and that device may have the best display of any modern smartphone. According to testing by GSM Arena, the Nokia E6’s display is the most pixel-dense display on the market as well as having the most brightness.

The previous title for pixel density was held by the iPhone 4 with Apple’s Retina Display, which boasts a pixel density of 326 pixels per inch. However, the Nokia E6’s VGA display, which is spread out over a 2.46-inch display, packs in 328 pixels per inch, slightly edging out the iPhone 4 title-holder.

In the brightness category, the LG Optimus Black is the current title-holder boasting 700 nits of brightness. However, the Nokia E6 has just de-throwned the Optimus Black in that department as well.

  1. I love Nokia’s front-facing keyboard hardware.  I would love it even more with some Mango WP7 OS goodness!
