LCD (Liquid Crystal Display)


1,LCD (Liquid Crystal Display) is a display system most used by phone manufacturers around the world. LCDs are made of liquid crystals and do not emit their own light. Very small LEDs (Light Emitting Diodes) are used to emit light on the entire screen. There are different types of LCD Displays as follows

2,TFT LCD (Thin Film Transistor): Due to high power consumption, many phone manufacturers do not continue to use it, but it is still used in low-cost phones due to lower production costs.

3,IPS LCD (In-Place Switching). These are better than TFT LCDs and comparatively consume less power which improves battery life. They are also sometimes referred to as Retina displays. By saving power consumption compared to TFT LCDs, it saves phone battery consumption. Example (Apple's Display)
Resistive Touchscreen LCD: Double Display, the touch is accurate and very responsive. These types are already used in budget phones and other high-end phones.

Capacitive Touchscreen LCD: These are also 2-Layered displays but are much better than Resistive Touchscreen. The Touch is very responsive and accurate. Most popular brands use these displays on their smartphones. It is a double-type display and is better than Resistive Touchscreen LCD. Because the touch is much more accurate and the response is very good, they have been used in prominent types of phones.

OLED (Organic Light-Emitting Diode)


OLED is used in Smartphones, Tablets, It is a new technology developed for computer screens and TVs. SMD LEDs are no longer used to illuminate the entire scene like LED displays. Therefore, power consumption is greatly reduced. OLED is more colourful than other displays; More light and shine improved resolution; Very responsive; It is used in today's must-have phones and advanced phones due to its lightness and wider side-to-side viewing capabilities.

AMOLED (Active-Matrix Organic Light-Emitting Diode)


is a further upgrade to OLED. Similarly, Super AMOLED Displays mean that even the AMOLED type is manufactured to be very thin.
