IPS Vs AMOLED Display Types & Resolution

You have one of the many choices when you buy a new smartphone with a display type. There are major and new technologies on the market which have their advantages and disadvantages as well. Here we would explain exactly what you need to know without going too far into the complex technicalities of each one’s approach. There are two major technologies in the market. Both technologies have many features which we’ll analyze and compare below. When we talk about the difference between these two technologies, we always observe changes because it has been upgrading and updating day by day.

IPS vs Amoled

IPS LCD Capacitive Touchscreen VS Super AMOLED

AMOLED: AMOLED (Active Matrix Organic Light-Emitting Diode) technology is now often seen in its next-generation Super AMOLED guise in the market. AMOLED is possibly just an extension of LED display technology where organic substance – one that has carbon – is used to emit light. It’s a newer and better technology than IPS LCD and has much improvement.

IPS: In the other corner of the ring we have IPS LCD, or In-Plane Switching Liquid Crystal Display – as Super AMOLED,2017 is an upgrade on plain old AMOLED, so IPS LCD improves on the venerable (TFT) LCD technology. The mighty iPhone uses IPS LCD and from the manufacturers’ point of view, it’s cheaper to produce, which is a bonus.

IPS Display VS Gorilla Glass

IPS: IPS-LCD IPS which stands for In-Place Switching are superior to normal TFT LCD displays with wider viewing angles and lower power consumption which supports a much-improved battery life. IPS-LCDs are costlier TFT LCD and hence are found only on higher end smartphones.

Gorilla Glass: Gorilla glass is a special alkali-aluminosilicate glass shield with exceptional damage resistance which protects mobile displays from scratches, drops, and bumps of everyday use in daily life. Many companies like Motorola, Samsung and Nokia are now using Gorilla Glass to make their mobile displays more durable and reliable displays and screens.

IPS Display VS HD Display

IPS: IPS is in-plane switching technology that is used as an LCD. It has nothing to do with resolution and others. IPS display can be with any resolution that is supported by industry.

HD Display: HD is not a screen type, It is a resolution, 720 and over, stands for High Definition Type. IPS is a technology used to make the screen, IPS or TN are the two main ones.


IPS-NEO LCD is a new change in small and medium sized screens.These screens don’t lose image quality when seen from an angle, Coupled with the Japan Display sixth-generation (1500 x 1850 mm / 59 x 73-inch glass substrate)  mass production of IPS-NEO is enjoying low production failure and risks.


IPS: IPS technology offers better display quality as compared to the TFT-LCD display. The important thing about IPS LCD is that it offers better viewing angles and takes less power.  It has a  high resolution (640×960 pixels) version of IPS LCD in its iPhone 4.

TFT: The Thin film transistor liquid crystal display (TFT-LCD) technology is the most common display technology widely used in smartphones. It offers better image quality and higher resolutions as compared to previous generation LCD displays. It consumes a lot of energy which results in shorter battery life.

IPS Display VS LED

IPS: ISP is a screen technology.They are best known for display consistent, best colour from all viewing angles and do not lighten when being touched. But they are expensive to produce, consumers more power and takes much time to response.

LED: LED(Light-emitting diode) display is a display panel which uses LEDs as an each individual pixel to display content. In the recent years, hey have been more popular as AMOLED and OLED display in smartphones, etc.

Super AMOLED Phones:

OLED technology is used in many phones nowadays, it comes in many Samsung smartphones like Samsung Galaxy S8, Samsung Galaxy J3 Pro,  ZTE Nubia M2, Vivo Xplay 6, Samsung Galaxy Alpha G850 Black and White 32GB 4.7″ SUPER AMOLED.


Amoled on Android phones are better than retina displays.With the iPhone 6, Apple sticks to the time-honoured tradition of LCDs, but Retina HD has a high definition to the screen. Retina Display is the term coined by Apple. Although by adding retina pixels, it is never mattered. AMOLED is only an extension of display technology which is used to emit light.
