Netflix offers four options for choosing image quality: automatic, low, medium and high. However, there are other factors that affect the quality of the video you see on the screen, especially if you do it on your mobile. We refer to the HDR10 that Netflix introduced in March 2017, a video technology that greatly improves the user experience while watching content.

Unfortunately, not all mobiles are compatible with this Netflix technology, so you should check if your Samsung phone supports HDR10 or not. In this article we will talk more about this video technology, we will tell you which Samsung phones are compatible with it and, beware, the rest of the requirements you have to meet to enjoy this image quality.

Netflix HDR10: what it is and all compatible Samsung phones

Technology is constantly advancing and we also notice this when we watch our series and films. The screens are not only bigger, they also have better video technologies that significantly increase the quality of what we see. One of these is the HDR, also known as High Dynamic Range, which in turn hosts HDR10, Dolby Vision and HDR10 +.

Specifically, Netflix introduced the first two: HDR10 and Dolby Vision. In this case, we are interested in HDR10, which is the most basic support of HDR and that represents an improvement in the brightness and color of the image we see on the screen, as it allows a maximum brightness of 1.000 nits and a 10-bit color depth.

This figure alone does not say anything, so we will compare it with that of SDR technology, known as Standard Dynamic Range. The color depth of the SDR is 8 bits, that is, while it allows a maximum brightness of 100 bits. Therefore, HDR10 guarantees an image with double the brightness and a much wider color palette, approximately one billion tones (SDR remains at 16 million tones).



If you have a Netflix HDR10 compatible mobile phone, you will be able to see the platform's catalog with superior video quality, especially in terms of brightness and color. As we already did when reviewing Netflix's list of HDR10 compatible Xiaomi phones, you can find out below which Samsung phones support this video technology.

As specified by the company on its website, the latest firmware must be installed on the phone. You must also have Netflix version 5.0 for Android or higher and be subscribe to the platform plan that allows playback in Ultra HD.



The requirements continue, namely that yours Internet connection must be at least 25 megabits per second and you must always have the playback quality configured in the High option. Once these conditions are met, you will be free to calmly watch Netflix content in the quality provided by HDR10.
