The present era of this artificial smartphone is very little different, with so many variations of specifications for the unique of all users.
Surely you have heard of TN-TFT, IPS, and OLED in screen groups.
Your friend might have heard “Super AMOLED is better compared because of…., but is that so? What is the difference between each type and can it be better?
Well, you can better understand when buying a smartphone to be able to use the use of each screen better, as follows a very easy brief explanation of TN-TFT, IPS, and OLED which are not uncommon.
LCD or Liquid Crystal Display is a screen panel that uses liquid crystals as the main display material. Therefore, the TN-TFT screen requires a backlight or backlight projected onto the liquid crystal layer to be able to display color until it becomes an image.
TN-TFT LCD itself used Thin Film Transistor technology and became popular in the television and monitor markets thanks to higher prices and compatible with previous comparable screen designs. So it is not surprising not a few in the era of the emergence of smartphones that used the most TFT-TN until now.
There are advantages of TN-TFT compared to other types of screens, namely a higher level of freedom, the sharpness of color, easy to witness in the sun, and more extended durability compared to OLED screens. Even so, TFT-TN is not without weaknesses that require technology must compete with OLED.
Some of the disadvantages of TN-TFT include high power consumption, contrast that is not good enough to not be able to display black, approved colors when viewed from a wide-angle, and low response times that can be done ghosting or shading to the point not suitable for use as VR equipment. As Virtual Reality technology rapidly growing, it’s not just developed for the regular company, many companies who provide online sportsbook also start to develop casino games in VR mode.
Also, the TN-TFT is in contrast to PLS-TFT, which is now being used on the latest Samsung smartphones. The PLS-TFT uses Samsung’s exclusive Plane Line Switching technology to compete with IPS technology so that in terms of image quality, it is far better compared to TFT-TN and equals IPS.
IPS or In-Plane Switching is still classified as an LCD type; only the technology used is the opposite of TFT-TN. IPS LCD technology allows liquid crystals to be arranged to increase viewing angles and change the colors compared to TFT-TN.
IPS is very suitable for tablet equipment, and it is not better for smartphones to switch to using this one panel higher for the upper-middle level. IPS provides the best equilibrium of existing smartphone panel technology.
More efficient use of power, a viewing angle of up to 178 degrees, until accurate color reproduction, is the main charm of IPS besides the advantages of TN-TFT which is already included. However, IPS also still has a weakness similar to TFT-TN, which is relatively low response time.
IPS is not often the primary choice for users who are most concerned with color resolution, editing, or editing because the colors shown are always consistent.
OLED or Organic Light-Emitting Diode is a display technology that can produce light and compared LCD that requires a backlight. The use of OLED technology allows the screen to be thin, wide, and wide so that it can be applied in many types of devices.
OLED itself in the smartphone market in Samsung through their Galaxy S line that always uses Super AMOLED in its screen technology. Super AMOLED itself uses Active Matrix technology from TFT LCD into OLED so that it can process each pixel more effectively for each user directly.
The advantages of OLED itself are its ability to change black. This also allows OLED to be more battery-efficient by not requiring light in black. In theory, OLED has an unlimited ratio and a wider range of color gamut.
With all the advantages that exist and the growing prevalence of smartphones using this technology, OLED is not without flaws. Indeed OLEDs are more economical for darker compilation batteries, but on the contrary, OLED will be far more wasteful when it is decided to convert 100% or white.
Besides that, OLED still has a little color evolution when witnessed from other angles. However, there is one weakness of OLED, which until now has created this one technology must be a prime consideration of all consumers, namely the issue of durability, especially burn-in.
The problem of burn-in on OLED occurs when the occurrence of permanent color evolution, the impact of images displayed is not often the same or static, which is not uncommon in navigation locations on smartphones. The duration of burn-in is quite varied, can be in years, monthly, and even daily.
So which screen is better and the champion? Nothing, because every technology has its weaknesses and advantages that can be adapted to the needs of its users. TFT-quality in terms of quality is currently under but has a much more affordable price.
On the different side, IPS are in the middle by providing equilibrium between TN-TFT and OLED. It’s just that IPS cannot offer real black color as it should be like OLED, but it is still better compared to many TFT segments.
For OLEDs that are starting to be used, not a few smartphones, the upper learning space can provide more attractive colors, show pure black, and be more economical if you often use dark colors. Unfortunately, there is a burn-in problem which, according to my statement, is the most fatal.
Of the three technologies, I currently prefer IPS because I have no problem in burn-in and have more consistent color reproduction accuracy while OLED according to my information is more suitable for television compared to smartphones and monitors because images will often move.
Even so, the presence of OLED is not ignored because it has a relatively rapid development in recent years. Plus OLED allows a really thin screen panel with a thickness of just 1 mm. Not blocking, it is possible that OLED will completely replace the different screen technology as a whole.
