What is the difference between LCD and OLED screens.

An LCD display is a fairly old technology, but is still used on many current devices.

As such, an LCD display will not be as vibrant in colour or brightness as an OLED screen.

LCD is cheaper to manufacture and is available as an option in place of an OLED Screen for many devices.

This is because OLED is often substantially more expensive than an LCD.

Apple screens

An iPhone X and above, typically use an OLED display.


All iPhones prior to the iPhone X use an LCD display.

Samsung Screens

All S model phones from the S7 and above use an OLED display.
