The way we stream and consume content on our smartphones has completely changed now. Just 10 years ago, no one was interested in watching movies on their smartphones, and there were no OTT applications too. As soon as the pandemic hit, the scenario completely flipped as a lot of people resorted to watching their favorite shows and movies on Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, and other such platforms. These platforms cater to their booming audience with an exclusive quality content catalog.

However, the quality of the content is also a great deal these days. Most of the high-quality content is based on HDR or High Dynamic Range, which is nothing but a display standard. A major example of the same you would have seen at multiple places where smartphone-producing companies boast that their smartphone comes with HDR10 or HDR10+ content support. In this article, we will get to know more about both types of display standards, along with a list of phones that support HDR/HDR10+ content.

HDR10: What does it mean?

It all started with HDR and now we have various terminologies like HDR10, HDR10+ (introduced by Samsung), DOLBY Vision, and HLG (Hybrid Log-Gamma). HDR is the display’s ability to project bright highlights and dark shadows accurately. This, in turn, helps you to immerse yourself into a wide gamut of colors on your smartphone display.

HDR10 is an open-source format, developed by the UHD alliance, that is currently more widespread. If your phone supports HDR content, then it can play HDR10. Technically speaking, HDR10 currently supports up to 4,000 nits peak brightness, with 10-bit color depth.

HDR10+

HDR10+ works differently than HDR10. It is the most advanced version of HDR10, a technology that enhances the colors and contrast of the media you view. It makes use of cameras allowing you to play back your videos and photos with true-to-life colors and incredible detail.

Nowadays, most of the smartphones come with HDR10+ technology.

How to Stream HDR10/HDR10+ Content on Netflix on Phone?

Streaming Netflix in HDR requires Netflix app version 5.0 or above for Android smartphones.

To stream in HDR, you will need:

  • A phone that has a Dolby Vision or HDR10 compatible display and chipset.
  • A 4-screen Netflix plan. You can check which plan you’re currently on at Netflix.com/ChangePlan.
  • A steady internet connection speed of 25 megabits per second or higher.
  • The streaming quality is set to High.

HDR10 vs. HDR10+ vs. Dolby Vision: Comparison of different display formats

Dolby Vision outruns the other two as it’s more future-proof with more peak brightness levels and color depth. Moreover, its dynamic meta-data is created by hand by colorists and editors at the movie studio, while for HDR 10+, its metadata is created by an upscaling algorithm. In the future, Dolby Vision would be ready to match the standards, while the other two would fail then.

Phones complaint with Dolby Vision include the iPhone 11 series, Samsung Galaxy S20 series, Galaxy foldable phones, LG G6, OnePlus 8 Pro, and Google Pixel 4 phones. However, some of these HDR mobile devices are also certified for Dolby Vision. With a software patch from Dolby, most of these HDR 10 devices can become Dolby Vision-ready.

Unlike Netflix, Amazon doesn’t share a list of supported devices. We would test and update the following list for more new devices. You could also share any device that has missed the list. The comments section welcomes your valuable contribution.
