Not too long ago, we used to depend on our CRT TVs to watch maybe one or two channels. Over the last two decades, there has been a paradigm shift in how content is offered and consumed. From LCD TVs to plasma TVs, and now, LED TVs, the entire TV landscape has changed. We’ve witnessed an even more rapid transformation in the mobile phone industry. While 4-inch mobile devices were once considered the norm, today, we can even get around 7-inch smartphones that blur the line between a smartphone and a tablet.
That said, this increase in the display size has also played to our convenience. We can now work on-the-go by reviewing and editing documents or presentations, draft emails, and even watch our favourite shows and movies from various apps or OTT platforms. With the likes of Netflix, Amazon Prime Video and Disney + Hotstar becoming extremely popular, offering thousands of hours worth of content, we can watch a movie while flying or travelling, or even stream our favourite matches while we are in the middle of a coffee break during work hours!
However, it is imperative that we have a smartphone with a good display, in order to have an immersive viewing experience. Let us now take a quick look at the various types of displays that accompany our smartphones today.

IPS LCD Panel
IPS LCD panels are similar to TFT LCD panels, but offer wider viewing angles, and consume less power. These are also some of the most common displays, especially in the budget and mid-range segments, but you can even find mobile phones in the mid-premium and premium segments that use IPS LCD screens.
In fact, even Apple used the IPS LCD panel for its iPhone 4. These panels offer excellent picture quality due to their wide viewing angles, and come with a resolution of 640 x 960 pixels. Some of the best phones under 30,000 INR, such as Realme X3 SuperZoom, and Xiaomi Mi 10i use LCD panels.

AMOLED display for Smartphone
OLED is relatively new technology, where an organic material is placed between two conducting sheets. These are also placed between two glass plates, and an electric pulse is passed or applied to the two sheets. OLED and AMOLED displays are often used in premium devices, such as OnePlus 7T and OnePlus 7T Pro, as these offer better resolution. Users will also be able to stream their favourite content from OTT platforms at 1080p on such devices, while AMOLED displays are also easy on the eyes.
This is primarily the reason why even the mid-range Samsung mobiles that use AMOLED displays are heralded as the best smartphones. These smartphones offer an immersive viewing experience, and because of their high resolution, and the fact that these displays also produce better color reproduction and more brightness, they are often found in mid-premium and premium phones.
Super AMOLED display
Initially, it was only Samsung that went a step further, offering phones with Super AMOLED displays. However, other brands have now caught up, and one could argue that phones with Super AMOLED displays offer the best viewing experience, with wider viewing angles, and better colour reproduction.
For instance, OPPO F17 Pro comes with a full HD+ Super AMOLED display with a resolution of 1080 x 2400 pixels, which is easily the best display you can find for an immersive viewing experience. The model also boasts a 90.1 percent screen-to-body ratio, which is extremely impressive. Furthermore, high-end gaming smartphones also come with Super AMOLED displays, which takes the gaming experience to the next level.
If you want to purchase the best smartphone model that elevates your viewing experience, you can find a plethora of options on the Bajaj Finserv EMI Store. What’s unique about shopping on the EMI Store is that you can purchase models on no-cost EMIs, avail attractive discounts and offers, and get the smartphone delivered to your doorstep within 24 hours of placing the order.
