The iQOO 8 Pro scored an A+ mark, the highest given out by DM, by setting or matching 14 smartphone display performance records. These includes excellent color accuracy, covering 112% of DCI-P3 and 140% of sRGB, showing an impressive brightness of 980 nits at 100% APL (i.e. the full screen is lit up) and peaking at 1,508 nits with low APL. The 8 Pro has some of the lowest screen reflectance ever tested by DM.

7 of the 14 performance records were rated “visually indistinguishable from perfect”, which earned the new iQOO flagship a DisplayMate Best Smartphone Display Award.
