An AMOLED display is a type of screen that has an array of light emitting diodes as pixels. The “A” stands for active matrix, which means it can produce color where other displays cannot. This technology was first introduced in 2007 by Samsung and found its way into mobile devices like the Galaxy S III.
An OLED (Organic Light-Emitting Diode) Display uses organic compounds to emit light; these are not used with LCDs or LEDs.
Why is AMOLED better than LCD
An AMOLED screen is different from an LCD screen in that the pixels are not backlit. This means there’s no need for a light source, like a backlight or reflector to produce color on the display. As well, OLED displays use less power because they only turn their diodes on when necessary and everything happens at once instead of sequentially as with LED screens.
An AMOLED screen is better than an LCD because it can be thinner due to its lack of a lighting system behind it (no need for a lit up display). It also uses less energy due to this same reason – no lighting required! Lastly, colors will appear brighter than images displayed on other types of screens which will lead to a more enjoyable viewing experience.
AMOLED screens best for outdoor use because they don’t have backlighting, so the brightness is much better and there’s no glare from light sources behind you on LCD screens. An AMOLED screen can be used outside in all types of lighting conditions – either indoors or outdoors! No matter where we are, these displays will always look good thanks to their lack of backlight (no need for an external source). This also means that it won’t produce as many reflections which could make our display difficult to see during times when we’re surrounded by bright lights. On top of this, these screens offer brighter colors than other types such as LED or OLED which leads to a more enjoyable viewing experience.
With AMOLED, the touchscreen doesn’t need to be continually tapped or swiped because it’s pressure-sensitive so you can use your finger like a pen and just drag when drawing, or tap for right clicking.
A big advantage of using an OLED screen over other types such as LED is that this type of display offers greater sensitivity than traditional touchscreens which means we don’t have to find the perfect balance between how hard we press on our screens in order get them to work properly – they’ll react every time! That might not seem like a huge deal but there are some really cool advantages associated with it too.
