Some older reviews have two scores for the endurance rating with and with AOD e.g. Samsung Galaxy A3 2017 and Samsung Galacy A7 2017. Are all the newer endurance rating scores with AOD disabled?

The brightness in the display tests for many phones has values that are lower by more than 10% when comparing to displaymate.com at 50% APL. Are the values for 50% APL or 100% APL?

I have read your review on Realme 7 Pro. Coming to Speakers quality it was not good and mobile was VIBRATING at back panel. Have you observed this from your end while reviewing the product. Thanks...

I regret, that sunlit contrast ratio is no longer tested. It was a major reason for me to select my last phone. Yes, screen glare is quite important and can offset high nits easily, and there are relevant differences. One of the last tests revealed the top performer at 5.98 when the second was at 5.17 which is a notable difference.
Btw, there are well existing standards (even regulations) for lighting conditions in professional environments (at least in Germany), which demand between 500 lx (normal office work) and 1500 lx (e.g. watch makers) on the desk and at least 300 lx in those environments.

my sony xperia is not working

What made them different from other smartphone sites was precisely the audio tests with headphones. Now they are one more, camera tests can be found in many places. Audio testing was what made them different.

appreciate the new loudspeaker test reasoning but would really welcome comments on the in call quality and loudness of the earpiece because other than multimedia, calls are the primary use of a phone
