AMOLED panels for smartphones said to become cheaper than LCD within 2 years
This is set to change in the near futurer as production yields of AMOLED panels will improve. Within two years, the prices are expected to even out, and AMOLED might become even cheaper.
“Until recently there have been few breakthroughs in the production of AMOLED displays, and the OLED industry seemed to be facing hard times,” said DisplaySearch’s Jimmy Kim. “If AMOLED costs fall below LCDs, as expected, it would lead to more opportunities for the OLED display industry, greater competition with LCD, and more choices for consumers.”
The latest analysis shows that Samsung in particular has made great strides with its Quad HD (1440 x 2560-pixel) screen, improving grayscale and color accuracy, and even improving brightness. It’s also interesting to note that recently AMOLED production has started in China (in addition to Korea), with expectations for higher demand.

I hope it will happen soon and all phone manufacturers will use Amoled displays... love Amoled

Amoled sucker myself. Color-shift is just a major turn off for me. And with my 925 (and recent Galaxy phones) you can set the color reproduction to show neutral colors. Love it.

THIS ARTICLE IS NONSESE.
Until two years AMOLED will not stay same. This tech is new and developing fast(ask Samsung). The newest and the best AMOLED tech will keep the price this two years. For sure.
Well, todays AMOLED displays might be same price as LCD in two years , though. LOL

what happened to super amoled plus ?

Why do you need super amoled when pentile is doing a terrific job at colour accuracy without sucking up too much of battery ?
6. nohatenofanboy (banned) (Posts: 515; Member since: 15 Jul 2014)
its looking sharp than pentile

"Percievely", it's looking sharper than pentile.
To be more correct. The quad HD GS5 LTE-A is miles ahead the oversharpened LG G3.

I havent seen quad hd amoled yet but bfore say something about it I have to try it

The last super Amoled Plus display was used in GS2 which had 400x800 display.
So you're essentially saying, a phone with 217 ppi (GS2) is looking sharper then a phone with 432 ppi (GS5) ?!

no Im saying that if you compare pentile and rgb at same resolution pentile looks less sharper

this "pentile" bashing is out of the date now. Old ipropaganda bashing. Like the "colour reproduction" bashing.
First motor car(airplane) was mocked too. But today's cars(planes) are not the same. Right?

Oh! Wow! With low power consumption and increasing screen accuracy, amoleds will be huge hit.

Explain your comment Sony fanboy. I can't interprete a sh*t.
19. StraightEdgeNexus (Posts: 3620; Member since: 14 Feb 2014)
Also what's the overall difference between amoled and oled according to you?
15. PapaSmurf (Posts: 8925; Member since: 14 May 2012)
Looks like someone has never tested the Tab S on person.

That's why IPhone's screen are cheap and natural. Vs modified Amoled.
Slcd is cheaper.
Funny thing is, when Apple progresses their Cpu, modifying it, it's OK, but when Samsung does it you hate it. Irony
