    my question is my phn is having ips screen type with 12mp camera..but clearity is not good…so is there any prblm with my screen or anything else…

    • Apologies for the late response, IPS screen should have exceptional detail and clarity, tell me are you facing this with issues when you look at pictures taken from your phone’s camera or are you facing this problem when watching any movie or game play? Also another factor is PPI if your device’s screen has a low pixel density your videos along with the pictures will seem pixelated. A pixel density of 240 and above is good.
      If its not that and the problem lies with the camera pics then I suggest you have the camera checked out otherwise if you face this problem during watching hd videos or pictures, then have the device checked by it’s manufacturers sales and service center.

      Dear Mahi, I am also using LG Optimus IPS display mobile and i dont have any problem in bright sunny light outside. Some camera tweaks can solve your problem or may be depends on the quality of IPS panel.

    The main problem I have with my AMOLED screen (Samsung Galaxy S3) is screen burn. I frequently play Ingress and now several of the game’s UI elements are permanently displayed over everything else.

    Thank’s for the information. I have a plan to buy a smartphone. But now i’m not still confuse anymore about amoled and IPS.
    Thx.

    I am using both IPS & Amoled display mobile handsets, and i would recommend IPS panel because it has great colour reproduction as compared to amoled. In strong and bright sunny light outside, my ips gives me hassel free working of screen but in amoled i cant see my stuff, its very dull. Images are very much sharper and clear in IPS panel compared to amoled. This articles gives the true information that Amoled is only made to give better battery life but not sharper and clear image output compared than IPS. So guys go for IPS Panel.

    • Ejaz Mir says:

      There is a hell of difference between AMOLED AND SUPER AMOLED. I am using Samsung note 4, it gives bright sharp images. Its visibility under sunlight is superb. Camera is excellent.

  7. Jerome Plam says:

    This is a very helpful article. Well i think ips vs amoled really depends on user preference, I really love having darker blacks on my screen and which in turn gives alot more battery life especially whenever im using darker wallpapers. i dont really mind the less sharper images compared to the ips. but IPS display really do look good. Im a heavy user so i do need a few battery life to get through the day, so i’ll go for amoled. 🙂

  8. Slope says:

    IPS is better, therefore I bought the Nokia Lumia 920 instead of the 925. I tested several AMOLED devices and never liked the oversaturated and unnatural colours, also these displays appeared all to be less sharp than IPS or LCD. I also avoid cameras with AMOLED displays.
    I don´t care about the rendition of black but of other colours, otherwise I could also use a monochrome display. Battery life is ok, it´s not only the display that reduces running time.

    So what would you prefer? amoled or IPS? Which is better? So which is which?

  12. Shahxaib says:

    Ips is better due to its bright and clear colour reproduction than amoled and its also cheap

  13. Giraffe says:

    I prefer the IPS display. It has more vibrant colour reproduction. Brighter display in sunlight as compared to amoled screens. Moreover amoled screens tends to wear out its colour over time. The LCD screen is known for producing natural colours while the amoled produce over saturated colours making it look unnatural.

    Hello dear

    thank you very much for this great opportunity.
    now i have a clear understanding about ips screen and AMOLED SCREEN
    i had a galaxy s4 and S3, and the bad things about the AMOLED SCREEN That i noticed on those phone is , the screen start turning yellow with the time. Like the screen was getting old and was losing brightness.

    Sir

    Please suggest the best device among SONY XPERIA Z2, SAMSUNG S5 AND APPLE 5S

    i have at least 3-4 hrs of daily talk and 24 hrs 3G, with excessive mail usage and social website use (chatting).

    currently using i 4 APPLE found good in use but limitation of full feature application download as compared to android.
    Small screen to use.
    low battery backup, need to charge again after half day.

    I need reason for why i should not go for 5S and choose samsung or sony (android,feature, size, usage, practicality)

    Please advice on one, i should go with, considering above…

    • Well, I don’t actually want to put down the apple 5s, because it has a completely different OS, so you really cannot put a comparison between an Android device and an IOS one. People have complained that it uses up too much battery, but the thing with 3G, it uses up alot of battery as well, so I can’t say that you’ll not have to recharge your android device at least twice in a twenty four hour period. Although the thing that I will say is that 5s does not have great value for money, people pay insanely high amounts for a relatively featureless device, in comparison to lets suppose the s4 or the s5. the shashka you get with S5 features costs less than if you would like to get the same with an APPLE device by buying its accessories.

  19. Mehwish says:

    Great and deep with the simple to understand examples of ips v.s amoled lcd. After reading this comparison I think, IPS is more better than AMOLED as I am focusing on its Long Life, Day light visibility, sharper images and higher resolution support…

    Actually numbers 2 & 3 on the cons section for AMOLED screens are totally incorrect, AMOLED screens are brighter and sharper than IPS screens, and are superior to see in direct sunlight, I know because I have both.
