Amoled Is Better......But IPS Display Also Good............ I Have Have Lumia 640 Which Have IPS Display Looks Great Clear Clearity It's Also Consume Less Power N Black Wallpapers Also Help For Battery....... Amoled Display Best Display Is All Rounder Which I Saw In Samsung Galaxy Series N After That Some Chinese Companies Models Like Lenovo P2........ Anyday I Will Go For Amoled or IPS But TFT Displays No Way :)

LG is leader on OLED since years
Now Sony came there
Their screen is just slightly worse than LG, but their speakers are better. So no big differences, but the it costs 30% more which isn't worth it, and the design of it is really unusual and it lays back in an awkward angle, which isn't for everybody.
I prefer Ips LCD. More comfortable for reading websites and natural colors, more detail, more reliable. I don't like the background always black color like a black hole, therefore I always set my background with white colors I call it heaven feels, if so oled will comsume more battery.
I wonder how the world which criticised AMOLED screens for highly saturated inaccurate colors now started to love it. That all has been made possible by Samsung only. OnePlus 3T or Nexus 6, for example, have awful displays. Samsung's SuperAMOLED has been tremendously improved.
NOTE: Just to clear confusion among many of you, AMOLED is not a Samsung Brand or technology. It is a type of screen. Samsung's variation of AMOLED is SuperAMOLED. P-OLED is a type of screen. It is not a LG Brand. All the votes to AMOLED is because of Samsung though, as AMOLED by others are over saturated, inaccurate and have low brightness, something which Samsung struggled from in initial days (or years?).
My statement is based on all the phones I have used(more than 20 in last 4 years).
regs, 06 Aug 2017That's just IPS. Yet Sharp's IPS one is far better.You're wrong, Sony's Triluminous displays use Quantum Dot screens (or let's say "Q-led" as Samsung is naming it), it's not just a plain IPS LCD.
Anonymous, 06 Aug 2017Amoled is sh*t. No natural color...Apple should have asked for your advice before jumping onto that AMOLED ship.
I guess AMOLED is such a clear winner because now also the iSheeps jumped ship. New orders from Cupertino...
Immortal Terminator, 06 Aug 2017Sony's Triluminos Display is the best for me... tried AMOLEDs but I Dont like oversaturated co... more"trilominous" is an LCD lol nothing special about it it's the same one apple uses and calls it retina
IPS/LCD cause it is cheaper (screen replacement) and has no burn effect like Amoled...
Ng, 06 Aug 2017I not sure how you can burn in your screen
I use A7 2016 1 and half year not seeing burn in issue. It wasn't my screen... since I have been using Sony devices... however my mom's Samsung had a S4 Mini and its display had burns after 2 years of use, (now she has an S7 Active, lets see how long it last)... my aunt has an S6 and its display burned after just 1 year... and I have seen many others...
It is more noticeable on devices from users that never turn on Screen Rotation and tend to use a lot of one app... in my family's case Whatsapp, Keyboard and Notification Bar is the culprit.
I understand why people prefer AMOLED, they do look vibrant, with true blacks, and potentially better battery management, however I have no complains with current offerings from Sony, and even less complains from my Surface Book which has one of the best LCD displays I've ever seen...
AMOLED. It's been tough looking to replace my Galaxy S6 because LED screens simply don't cut it when compared side-by-side.
IME the problem with AMOLED lies in their Diamond Pentile matrix. Not to undermine others but I never see AMOLED phones that have screen burn-in. At least on my phone, my dad's and my mom's. If Samsung could rearrange the matrix to equal RGB I think the image could've look as sharp as LCD at the same screen size and resolution.
But I'll go with the last option though. As long as the screen has wide viewing angle, deep blacks, great contrast & sunlight legibility, decent PPI & color accuracy, and suitable for night reading then I'm happy. Quality first, tech specs later.
Right now , AMOLED all the way , it colours are way better , or saturated & excellent viewing indoors or outdoors .I have IPS LCD screens with 1500 + viewing angle screen ( Excellent for IPS standard ) , but still AMOLED beats it by miles.
BurnIn or rather Colour Loss issue exists for AMOLED over 2 - 3 years of usage , but who uses mobile over 5 years , by which time battery is reduced or 4g goes to 5g.
Quality Quantum Dot or as said MicoLED is future but is still not mature enough , will need 5 - 7 years of research & improvement to near match OLED standard , till then AMOLED will rule upcoming LG , Iphone , Samsung phones ,
Yes ,Sony IPS LCD Triluminos are the best in LCD , but unfortunately they dropped on new tech like 4 RGBW combination as in Xperia P ( Which had excellent outdoor visibility ) ,still its 4K Triluminos is excellent & if Sony goes for OLED with Triluminos it will kill Samsung OLED for sure. I assume Quantum Dot of Sony Mobile will be best in future.
regs, 06 Aug 2017AMOLEDs have poor viewing angles - significant color shift even on little angles. Haven't seen... moreAMOLEDs have poor viewing angles? Really? I haven't used that many phones over the years but I used Nokia E7 for a couple of years when it came out. It had an AMOLED screen with Nokia's ClearBlack technology and the screen was simply stunning. If I remember correctly there wasn't practically any color shift when you angled the screen. You could angle the phone so that the screen would be just a tiny sliver and the brightness and the colors would pretty much stay the same.
I remember being gutted after moving to Moto G which has an IPS display. There's a huge shift in brightness when you angle the screen even a little bit, and this obviously affects the colors as well, although obviously things aren't as terrible as they are with TN panels. I used a cheap candybar Samsung which had a TN panel (or so I assume) and it was just dreadful. You couldn't angle the phone at all because the color shift was so huge the colors practically became reversed.
I've briefly used Samsungs with AMOLED screens at work and they were totally fine as well, even if I don't remember them being as gorgeous as Nokia E7's screen. In any case they were far better than any IPS screen on phones I've seen.
Gandalfdenvite, 06 Aug 2017The IPS LCD on my Moto G5 is horrible, with backlight bleed from the bottom edge of the screen... moreİt woukd be goodif burn in shows after 2 3 years but no had few samsungs with samoled problems and only ATİV S (720P pentile Hd samoled) had no problems.
S2 and s5 with burnşngs in the first year and a52016 the first month - the whole status bar!
İ switched to huawei its far more better bkack is deep too white is not gray and and it has no sunlight problems.
The only good for samoled is the vibrant color but şts acheviable ın lcd too if you prefer its a matter of settings.
Waiting for ?led from sony, 4K HDR and infinite black would be great next step. But all thx to amoled for setting new level for color accuracy and bringing back always on to foreground from old nokia lcd's.
Immortal Terminator, 06 Aug 2017Sony's Triluminos Display is the best for me... tried AMOLEDs but I Dont like oversaturated co... moreAgreed. I miss Xperia's display whenever I switch to other brands. The transition from Z2's to OnePlus 3's screen was just painful. Now I'm on LG G6, and I still notice a difference compared to my Z5, though not as bad as the OP3. Triluminous is vibrant and punchy without the oversaturation.
