The world of mobile display technology can seem technical and confusing - whether it’s LCD or AMOLED, the differences between the two can be tricky to get your head around!
In order to make your decision easier when it comes to choosing which display technology is best suited for your mobile phone needs, we’ve put together a guide to walk you through the differences between LCD and AMOLED displays - see below for our handy guide!
It’s arguably very difficult to conclude whether one display is better than the other, as there are considerable differences between the different display technologies. In addition, not all LCD displays look the same and neither do all AMOLED displays.
As smartphones become thinner and more sleek over time - take the bezel-less iPhone X for example, which is also the first Apple smartphone to use AMOLED display technology - it’s arguable that AMOLEDs are the winning choice.
Ultimately, choosing which display is right for you will come down to user preference.
The good news is that there are excellent mobile handset options for both types of display. For example, Samsung’s phones feature excellent AMOLED displays, whereas LG and HTC phones make use of great LCD displays.
If you’d like a choice between the two, different Android smartphones make use of either type of display technology, so you’re spoilt for choice!
