Dell did not spend much effort. The design was completely taken from the predecessor - no fashionable now "frameless", everything is strictly and in the old way - with large external frames.
The declared maximum brightness of the monitor is 300 cd / m2, the static contrast ratio is 1000: 1, the viewing angles are 178 degrees in both planes, the response time measured by the GtG method is 6 ms in the Fast mode. The protective surface of the matrix is semi-matt, although it is often claimed as matte. The frequency of vertical scanning at the native resolution can not exceed 60 Hz, which is the norm not only for a professional monitor, but also for all modern 4K displays among those produced as of mid-2016.
Monitor potential can be opened by using any of the installed ports, whether it's HDMI 2.0 (with MHL support), DP 1.2 or mini DP 1.2. To display the image on the second monitor nothing is provided - the DP-out connector is missing, which is quite strange.
To work with the peripherals, the Dell UP3216Q has four USB 3.0 ports (one of them supports high-speed charging), one 3.5 mm audio output and a "6 in 1" card reader. There is no built-in speaker system.
The control here is sensory, the stand is ergonomic, but without the support of the Pivot-coup. Free access to the internal LUT is provided through hardware calibration via the official Dell UltraSharp Calibration Solution software, which is based on the X-Rite i1Profiler program. The firmware update for this procedure is not required.
The UP3216Q pre-installed several factory emulation modes for the main color spaces, and the backlight compensation compensation system can be activated, but only in several presets and only with the factory settings for the color temperature.
