See The Difference Between AMOLED And LCD Displays

Published

on

If you’re a frequent reader of tech blogs the words AMOLED and LCD will certainly not sound strange to you. One of the biggest and most important parts of any smartphone is the display. The display is something you interact with dozens of times every day. It’s your window into the apps and tools that make up a smartphone. Displays have gotten ridiculously good over the years, but they still fall under two types. A smartphone usually comes with either of these displays. These displays are quite different, but both have advantages. AMOLED is mostly found on Samsung phones and a few other random devices. Most smartphones, including the iPhone, come with LCD displays. The big question is

What’s the difference between the two?

LCD
LCD stands for “Liquid Crystal Display.” These are the most common displays used in smartphones. Your TV and laptop probably have LCD displays. LCD is literally made from liquid crystals but that means it needs dual glass panels and a backlight. LCD displays are usually not as thin as AMOLED.

The colors are not too vibrant and the contrast isn’t very high high. Despite that, the colors generally look more realistic.

A common term that usual comes with LCD smartphone displays is “IPS,” which stands for “in-plane switching.” IPS offers wider viewing angles than other types of LCD displays, which is why it’s preferred for smartphones.

AMOLED

AMOLED is an acronym that stands for “Active Matrix Organic Light Emitting Diode.”
The displays are made from a very thin layer of polymers that light up when given electric current is passed through it. Because of its design, AMOLED panels can be very thin and they don’t need a backlight.

AMOLED displays tend to be more energy efficient.

LCD vs AMOLED

LCD displays usually look more dull compared to AMOLED because they don’t have the same level of contrast. This is actually a good thing if you want colors to look more realistic . Another thing to compare is power consumption. AMOLED displays don’t need a backlight while LCD displays do. This makes AMOLED displays more energy efficient.

AMOLED is generally better for your eyes. Unlike LCD with its blue like display. However some LCD
displays come with Miravision™ to protect your eyes but it’ll never be as good as the AMOLED display

Which is better?

There are different kinds of LCD as well as AMOLED displays so I can’t say anyone is better. Samsung makes great devices with AMOLED , LG makes great devices with LCD. So everything depends on user preference.

Infinix Smart 3 Plus Launched In Nigeria – Full Specifications

Infinix Smart 3 Plus Launched In Nigeria - Full Specifications 3

The Infinix Smart 3 Plus is a new device launched by Infinix Mobile and it comes with decent specifications. It’s a device I would say is a mid-range budget device so don’t expect much power from this phone.

INFINIX SMART 3 Plus

I still feel with Xiaomi around in Nigeria now Infinix would have stepped up their game but it seems they’re just recycling designs ever since they released the first device with a tear drop notch.

Infinix Smart 3 Plus Features

The triple rear camera is quite interesting as well.  In terms of design you get a plastic unibody with glass-finish at the back. The glass-finish adds a premium finish to the phone but unfortunately makes it a fingerprint magnet.

There’s also a microUSB port, the 3.5mm headphone jack and a microphone just right below the device. The front of the phone shows the teardrop notch, the selfie camera and the earpiece. Sound quality is not that bad however, The Smart 3 Plus has a downward firing mono speaker which isn’t too loud and you’ll actually prefer using your headphones. I still wonder why Infinix didn’t use the Dirac Speakers in this device.

It has a HD+ resolution display with a 2.5D glass for a premium feel. But I’m a bit disappointed with the 720p resolution and the large display doesn’t actually show what we all expected. It’s a bit low but I’m guessing it’s a sacrifice to put the phone in the budget range.

The back of the phone houses the triple-camera setup .The primary sensor is a 13-megapixel camera with a 2-megapixel depth sensor and a low-light QVGA sensor.

Let’s take a look at the quick specifications of the device

Huawei Phones Not Allowed To Use Android Officially Anymore 6

I woke up to a very disappointing news yesterday,Huawei Phones Not Allowed To Use Android Officially Anymore and believe me I was very upset about this move. This is coming at a time where Huawei is making changes to the Android market as we know it and Google revoked their licence based on mere accusations,

Accusations that haven’t been even proved to be true. This decision would probably worsen the trade war between China and the United States.

The consequences of this may end up affecting all technological markets and the world economy in general. Don’t forget that Huawei is the world’s second-largest seller of smartphones

Huawei Phones Not Allowed To Use Android Officially

Newer devices from Huawei will not be able to install Android updates, or any Google apps, including Google Play Store and Gmail. However, you can simply access those Android updates through AOSP and GAPPs but without any support from Google.

Donald Trump had accused Huawei of working for the Chinese government, installing back doors in their networks and devices to facilitate surveillance, without any evidence at all.

This made the senior manager of Huawei get arrested a few months ago. Since then, both China and the United States have imposed tariffs on their respective products. Recently, the Trump Administration added the Chinese brand Huawei to the blacklist of the Department of Commerce, hence, forcing American companies to stop having commercial relations with Huawei.

However, according to Reuters, Google is the first to comply with the recently approved law, but other US companies that have commercial relations with Huawei, like Qualcomm, Intel, NVIDIA, will have to make a similar decision.
