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.
AnonD-669148, 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.
AnonD-678801, 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.
Amoled display is not show true color and over brightness... Useless display..... Wait for SONY OLED INTO MOBILE.... All company going to die... Hahhaha... I love Sony Display.. . truly nature color in real life uses....
Amoled without a question.
I have on phone with Amoled, other with LCD a good one, but i really prefer those vibrant colors and contrast of Amoled (at least on a phone).
I don't fear Amoled issues, i still have old, backup Samsung Galaxy S2 and screen still looks ok to me. My friend even had Samsung Galaxy S1 and it was still ok as well.
regs, 06 Aug 2017AMOLED is a type and a brand for Samsung OLEDs. LG's POLEDs utilizing similar technology, but ... moreActuall6, P-OLED have a plastic layer between the GGx and the OLED panel. That way the only thing to replace if your screen shatter is the GG. Just wanted to precise this.
Sony's Triluminos Display is the best for me... tried AMOLEDs but I Dont like oversaturated colors, and the whites are tottaly different in AMOLED. Thats why I Choose Triluminos. Hope Sony will Continue Improving Triluminos For Future.
regs, 06 Aug 2017Yet generalizing all LCDs? TN, IPS, VA etc. There are far more differences in them than betwee... moredon't respond to my comment again if you don't know what I mean, I told you I understand what you are trying to say but I was responding to the other person, keyboard warrior
AnonD-558092, 06 Aug 2017I don't know what you're talking about. I have a device with a Super AMOLED display and viewin... moreamoled looks redish if u view it from almost 180 degree. i tried it with my A5.
but.. in reality nobody view it from that viewing angle. so this is not an issue.
I prefer Super LCD, like on My HTC 10.. Simply superb for my eyes.. :)
Anonymous, 06 Aug 2017that is why he can't generalize all OLEDs, i know what you meanYet generalizing all LCDs? TN, IPS, VA etc. There are far more differences in them than between AMOLED and POLED.
The IPS LCD on my Moto G5 is horrible, with backlight bleed from the bottom edge of the screen! Amoled never have problems with backlight bleed!
Burn-in is a problem with amoled, but phones are not supposed to be used more than 2-3 years anyway, because the battery usually get too bad after 2-3 years, so burn-in is rarely a real problem! It is a waste of money to buy any expensive flagship that all needs to be replaced after 2-3 years!
(AM)OLED displays. They're better for media consumption and battery runtimes. However, their main weakness is to be organic. This is why eventuallt MicroLED is 5he future's technology, since it has most of the OLED panel's advantages, but without the disadvantages.
