It is not only display.
It is also about images being processed.
Two brands can use same screen, results will be different.
Pixel XL has the flat version of S7e's screen.

Amoled Better But U Have To See Other Specifications Of Smart Phones Not Just Only Display........ Any Day I Will Go For Amoled or IPS But Lower Display No Way....... Redmi Note 4, Moto E4 Plus, Honor 6x, Lenovo P2, Galaxy J7 2016, Nokia 6 Best Phones Mixtures Of Amoled N IPS :)
AnonD-628531, 06 Aug 2017Surely if you're not voting for: 'Only quality matters' then you're just shamelessly fanboying???No, because life expectancy is important too. Sony quantum dot displays are supposed to last around 20 000 hours, AMOLEDS may be degrading after just a couple of thousand. A small improvement in black level seems a poor tradeoff for a short product life.
My opinion is as follow: I use Nokia since years, and the hi-end phones all have AMOLED screens. I am used to AMOLED by now and the panels on Nokia phones are of amazing quality. I also have an iPhone 6 with LCD, which is a very good display. Good colors, good saturation en good contrast for an LCD panel. Now which I prefer, that is difficult to say. I believe the iPhone's display is from Sharp, I am not sure. And it's a great display. The Nokia Lumia 930 has an amazing display as well and it is a must when using Windows due to the blacks. I like both. At this time I would say it's a tie in my opinion, but I slighty prefer AMOLED since I'm used to it.
Soon everyone follow the leader just like with phablets.

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 :)
XtremE16, 06 Aug 2017Amoled display is not show true color and over brightness... Useless display..... Wait for SON... moreYou can compare it to TVs
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...
AnonD-678801, 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.
