Anonymous, 21 Oct 2013Tft is lcd. Ips is lcd. Viewing angles is the only downside of tft,imo.TFT and IPS must both be present. Without TFT you'd be left with the old fashion array grid, i have seen displays like that and trust me they are terrible, very slow with extremely low contrast.
TFT is the signal distribution grid, while IPS refers to the way electrodes for each subpixel is attached to and how the electrodes manipulates the TN (Twisted Nematic) field inside the LCD cell. Trust me, IPS would look terrible without the TFT technology, non-TFT panels of old had severe pixel signal bleeding to neighbor pixels, and so slow that if yo moved the mouse pointer from one side of the screen to the other you would see like 20 individual mouse pointers, pointer trails were extreme.
Trust me, you do not want TFT to go away, its the single most important technology in any modern smartphone display.
Can Sony put all video codec support and 1080@60fps in a software update? O.o
pari, 21 Oct 2013Sony needs to improve in the user interface and features.Sony needs to do this, Sony needs to do that..blah blah blah and the trolls will not shut up! Why not go buy a phone that does what you like, it really is not that difficult.....Good bye trolls!
HELP PLEASE .. I didnt receive the z1 update yet.. Does it mean that i have a problem with my phone or i need to wait more?
I have been using the Z for the past 6 months and boy i love it! In the initial days of the use, it used to get heated up, i never liked much the 13 MP camera and all, but sony had given a series of firmware and software updates to Z and now i love this piece of beauty. Z1 owners who face troubles with camera or any other firmware issues, i say dont worry.. Just wait.. Sony will definitely give out updates and u will not regret having Z1.
Jamie, 21 Oct 2013I noticed that Sony still uses TFT displays while others are using IPS displays or LCD display... moreEither IPS-LCD, AMOLED, S-LCD 3 and etc are all actually part of TFT display, or I should say they all uses TFT technology on the display. Both LCD and OLED have their own strength and weaknesses like LCD have a better outdoor visibility but rather poor viewing angle (compare to OLED), OLED have a very good viewing angle + potential to be flexible but have poor lifespan (~5yrs vs LCD 10+yrs) and colour balance issue (which caused oversaturate issue). Though OLED is a newer technology and the future trend, but that doesn't mean LCD or any TFT is cheap or outdated display technology. Sony smartphone display is rather poor compare to its rival is not because of the TFT technology, but efforts. But Sony has improved a lot on their display on recent smartphone especially the Z Ultra.
