Anonymous, 07 Aug 2017Those are valid only for the low quality LCD screens like what LG phones have. A good quality ... moreSure. Here in the real world world lcd doesn't have normal issues because if you claim it that way then you are right. So day whatever it takes no matter how foolish...like oh....spend lots of money and no f flaws
viveksubhash, 07 Aug 2017As some9ne with an old n8 thats still ticking.. I'd say that burn in is not that much of a pro... moreConsidering that the n8 was made ages ago (it was basically a brilliant camera with phone parts it didn't deserve - but i still loved it to bits), the burn-in in mine isn't too bad either (you'd really have to look hard to even notice it).
I'd like to think an OLED made in 2017 will fare much, much better over 5 years than this little bugger from 2010 ever did, and that's a good thing.
I still prefer a good LCD over OLED although I'm using a Samsung phone. Even on a Galaxy S8 I see color fringing on sharp edges like text. I don't know if it is caused by the screen flickering but it really annoys me. Some of my friends using iPhones still hoped that Apple won't jump to OLED because of this. I think OLED is the future but this issue needs to be solved.
As long as the quality is good, there are no burn-ins, no over saturated colors and it doesn't brake at the first drop on the floor (cough cough edge displays cough), I don't care what technology is being used.
Anonymous, 07 Aug 2017As opposed to lcd light bleed, dead pixels, and dying backlight? Those are valid only for the low quality LCD screens like what LG phones have. A good quality LCD screen is better than any AMOLED.
As some9ne with an old n8 thats still ticking.. I'd say that burn in is not that much of a problem as it is made out to be..not saying that one is better off or worse than the other... But here are regular things i hear....
Hey you have an iphone.. You take the groupie.. It will come as the best
Wow beautiful screen.. Is it the s8? Or the s7 edge?
Xperia? How is it? Does it lag?
N8? That is still alive?
I like LCD more, the AMOLED is great and it got better over years but I don't like the punchy colours, I like the natural colours more.
AnonD-261377, 07 Aug 2017It is well known fact that AMOLED burn in...now milk is not white LOL Nothing to do with what I said
AnonD-261377, 07 Aug 2017It is well known fact that AMOLED burn in...now milk is not white LOL This poll exactly highlighted the facts...
savage, 07 Aug 2017Alot of people choose amoled because they heard people say amoled is good and they also be lik... moreNo lcd is being used more because it's much older, known, and more widely produced. Cheaper and easier.
And not because people talk about oled being so good without looking into it. But because people still constantly spread the same lies trying to degrade it without looking into it.
The fact still stands that it objectively is far superior in most ways and only getting better
I've been using LCDs till this year, when I switched to AMOLED in a Samsung phone. Colors do really pop, and it looks great. But I'll always vote for "quality matters" anyways, since I know other technologies can come real close to AMOLED. I probably wouldn't be able to tell AMOLED from high quality LCD if I didn't use two devices side by side for a period of time. Or, more importantly, wouldn't care. A good screen is just that - a good screen. When you have a good screen, it stops being the most important point in a device. You then switch to other areas, like material of the device. And then to performance, and then to software side (which seems to be the weakest link for many, many manufacturers).
AnonD-261377, 07 Aug 2017I owned Samsung: JET, Omnia HD, Wave, Galaxy 1, Galaxy 2...guess what...all had burn in...so t... moreNo technology carry forward the same issues that bogged them in initial stages. AMOLEDs have been developed a lot by Samsung since the first time they put AMOLED on a phone. Thinking that S7/8 will have same issues as S1/2 is stupidity. Come out of rocks, don't highlight a minor issue as a threatening one. As this poll showed, AMOLEDs are the most preferred. They came a long g way in quality
Wow so many comments. Amoled is crap with fake colors. And not durable at all. Burn in issue is an example. LCD is much better.
AnonD-261377, 07 Aug 2017Please don't smoke the mind of people...it is well documented that life span of AMOLED blue pi... moreI am an avid gamer, watch videos daily on Netflix and hotstar for the past 2 years and still doesn't experience burn in in these two years... Stop preaching nonsense. If the problem is of the range you are exaggerating then Samsung would have rectified the issues by now or If AMOLEDs get burned in within a year, then why Samsung continues to use them? Why Apple wants to use them in their upcoming phones? Even LG and Sony started using OLEDs in their high end TVs, if their lifetime is just one year then why Sony and LG will use them in TVs?
Afler all this Amoled will win by a Biiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiig margin
Anonymous, 07 Aug 2017So don't choose cheaper quality display. My monitor LCD doesn't have bleeding issue, maybe you... moreYup. Sure. I'll just spend a lot of money on this so that means that it won't have issues. That's my best logic and advice towards everyone
