Display Type Definition
There are many display/panel types used in smartphones today.
- LCD (Liquid Crystal Display)
- IPS-LCD (In-Plane Switching Liquid Crystal Display)
- OLED (Organic Light-Emitting Diode)
- AMOLED (Active-Matrix Organic Light-Emitting Diode)
The screen, when combined with the touch element, is ‘the’ major element of the user interface and as such we go to great lengths when testing screens during our review process to measure a displays quality by measuring Contrast Ratio, Color Calibration, Brightness and Sunlight Legibility.
