Purchasing a smartphone is becoming hard these days. There are very many options on phones, making it hard to keep up with the latest technology. With both tablets and smartphones now completely relying on the touchscreen interfaces, the screens of these handsets are one of the most important parts of modern day devices.Smartphone screens are made in two predominant technologies – the new AMOLED display and the LDC panel. Most smartphones use LCD screens, as they are more cost effective due to the longstanding reign as the primary display in smartphones, tablets, and even TVs.However, nowadays the AMOLED screens are beginning to take over as the technology becomes more and more advanced. One of the advantages of an AMOLED display is that each pixel has the ability to emit its own light. This means that a separate backlight is no longer necessary. This makes them more energy – efficient than the LCD displays. The downside of this type of display is that it is more susceptible to screen burn-in when compared to the LCD display.Most of the smartphone manufacturers don’t advertise or state whether their device has either an LCD display or an AMOLED display. So if you want to know what display your device carries, here is how to find out:
