At present, the mobile phone market competition is becoming more and more intense, the points of each manufacturer compete more and more meticulous, following the configuration, design, photo function. After fast charging technology, mobile phone screen has become a hot topic of consumer discussion. Leaving aside the screen specifications for the difference, there are currently two main types of screens used in mobile phone products, one is the LCD screen, the other is the OLED screen. So how different the two screens really are, how to choose when buying a mobile phone, just know three o ' clock can be.

LCD screen and OLED screen

The luminescent principle of LCD screen and OLED screen is different

OLED screen uses organic luminescent materials, after the power, screen pixels can be individually glowing or turned off, while the LCD screen is the test backplane glow, and then the screen provides color changes to achieve the screen display effect. Normally, because the luminous backplane has to exist, the LCD screen is not flexible, and the screen thickness is thicker than the OLED screen, so the current flagship has opted for a thinner and more malleable OLED screen.

The luminescent principle of LCD screen and OLED screen

The luminescent effects of the two screens are different

As mentioned earlier, because the OLED screen can glow autonomously, the screen display is more bright, while the LCD screen appears to be darker. It is worth mentioning that OLED screen with its own single-pixel luminescence features also provide a variety of ways for mobile phones to play, the most representative of which is the coupon display function.

Because pixels can glow alone, the OLED screen displays messages in a screen state and appears to be very clean because only the pixels displayed by the screen are glowing. And the LCD screen is full screen glow, the message white light, other positions blackened light, compared to the normal black screen shape color or more or less a little change. In addition, because of the different ways of glowing, the general OLED screen will be more power-saving than the LCD screen, which is why OLED screens are accepted by more and more consumers.

The cost difference between the two is obvious

The cost of the LCD screen is significantly lower than the OLED screen, which, of course, is also related to the service life and maintenance costs of the phone. Not enough, although the LCD screen cost is low, but at present even thousands of machines, but also as far as possible to choose OLED screen, even from the consumer point of view can be clearly seen that the LCD screen is eliminated is already a foregone thing.

However, it is not to be denied that the LCD screen does have many advantages, DC dimming was originally applied to the LCD screen, of course, the leakage problem is also very common in mobile phones using LCD screens. Two screens can be said to be varied, but OLED screens are more in line with the needs of the current era, what kind of screen do you like best?
