6 Best Smartphones with AMOLED Display

If you want a smartphone with a quality display, then you should consider buying one from our list of best smartphones with AMOLED display.

Remember when we all had smartphones without color display and it didn’t matter as much since we didn’t know better? Well, now we know better, and it isn’t only important to have a color display on our phone. Now we want a big screen, higher resolution, and brighter colors. Luckily, we can have it all and we even get to choose the finer details as well. The technology is so advanced now that there are smartphones with two displays, although that experiment didn’t work great. When it comes to smartphone displays, the manufacturers now mainly use two types of technology; IPS LCD and AMOLED. Each of these technologies has its pros and cons.

LCD (Liquid Crystal Display) technology has been present for a long time now.  The display contains liquid crystals which are light up with a single source of the backlight. IPS LCD is a better version of LCD with a faster response time. The advantages of IPS LCD are more natural colors, better performance under direct sunlight and cheaper cost of production. The disadvantages are that the dark colors seem gray, lack of contrast and lower quality of pictures. AMOLED (Active Matrix Organic Light Emitting Diode) on the other hand uses the organic material on TFT (thin film transistor). This way, each pixel can be individually illuminated. The advantages of AMOLED technology are that it allows producing thinner displays, has no restrictions when it comes to display size, black colors are darker and consumes less power in theory. The disadvantages include poor performance under the sunlight and shorter lifetime. You may encounter term Super AMOLED, which represents advanced AMOLED technology that allows thinner devices by integrating actual screen and touch screen in just one layer. While we are talking about screens, there might be some of you who like to tap their smartphone displays with a stylus rather than your fingers. If that’s you, check out our list of 8 Best Smartphones with a Stylus.

In order to create our list of best smartphones with AMOLED display, we headed over to GSM Arena and looked for smartphones that had the highest screen resolutions, 500+ PPI (pixels per inch) pixel density, packed Octa-core processors and had 4GB+ RAM and 32BG+ of storage. Our search resulted in finding more than 20 smartphones. After discarding those that are still to be released or not available anywhere but China and the variations of the same model, we ended up with 6 best. They were then ranked according to the overall impression. Let’s take a look at our list of best smartphones with AMOLED display.
