OLED vs LCD – we take a look at both technologies

iphone-8

In a previous blog post, we mentioned Apple will be switching from LCD to OLED for their next flagship phone, the iPhone8. This to keep up with competitor Samsung who has begun to use OLED screens for their flagship phones.

What’s the difference between the two technologies?

The main difference is how the pixels are illuminated.

In OLED, each pixel is illuminated individually, meaning that the picture quality is super accurate. LCD uses sections to illuminate so the color may ‘bleed’ into some sections.

You’re buying a tv for the holiday season? What’s better – OLED or LCD?

  • LCD is brighter.
  • OLED color is better.
  • OLED gives you a better viewing angle.
  • OLED is better for sports and games.
  • OLED is generally more expensive.

Even with these pointers, it’s not possible to state that OLED is better than LCD. Yes, OLED is becoming more affordable and the technology is diffusing into more and more products. LCD technology is old, but the technology has come a long way, keeping up with technological updates.

LCD is more common in older products. Luxe Electronics just received an LCD excess offer. All of these have been marked EoL or obsolete by the manufacturers. If you use any of these LCD in your products, be sure to let us know. Once marked EoL, it’s only a matter of time before the product completely disappears from the market.
