HTC One (M8) colour gamut larger than Apple iPhone 5S or Google Nexus 5

Compared to the HTC One (M7), the newly unveiled HTC One (M8) sports a bigger 5-inch screen. Not only does it sport a bigger screen, it has a larger colour gamut. In fact, it has a larger colour gamut than the Apple iPhone 5S and Google Nexus 5.


PhoneArena has run some tests on the HTC One (M8), “and found out that its saturated colors extend beyond the boundaries of the standard sRGB colorspace.” It says, “We’ve found out that its area extends to 110% of the standard sRGB gamut.”

In conclusion, the site says, “So, to put the new One’s 110% color gamut in some perspective, we can point out that last year’s HTC One and the LG G2 both have 100% color gamut areas (compared to sRGB size), while the Nexus 5 and iPhone 5s have 98% and 97%, respectively. You should also keep in mind that two phones with 100% color gamut size may display significantly different colors! What this number indicates is solely how much of a color range a screen can display – it doesn’t necessarily mean that this color range will overlap with the sRGB color range.”
