Our viewing angle measurements show the brightness as well as the colour deviation. Aside from that we also show the standard deviation. This is based on the sub-measurements of the base- and support colours, plus 100% and 75% white. If the standard deviation is low, the brightness of all colours is reduced in the same manner. If this is higher, we speak of a colour shift.
So far we have only heard good things about the Samsung C49HG90, but unfortunately that good news does not continue when we look at these graphs. The reduction of the brightness when we do not view the monitor under an angle of 90 degrees is big. The same goes for the colour deviation. It does not matter if you look at it from above, below, left or right.
We can only advice you to: sit in the middle, place the monitor at the correct height and if someone is watching you play you need to be able to cope with this extremely well - or they are simply unlucky and miss out on the colour spectacle. You are not aware of this if you are seated right in front of it, but now you know why you are possibly seeing unhappy faces if you sit behind the C49HG90 with multiple people.

Below you can find the deviations of white for the four viewing angles – in the graphs above cover the average colour deviation, which explains the different values.
