    Technology - There are two main screen technologies currently used in phones and tablets: LCD and AMOLED.

Current AMOLED screens differ in such a way that they can exhibit much more saturated colors (sometimes too much) and incredibly high contrast levels, which is due to black color being completely black in AMOLED displays.
