IPS LCD or AMOLED – Which is better?

Auto & Technology


Whenever we want to buy a smartphone, we differentiate phones available in the market on the basis of their RAM, processor, internal storage, camera & battery. But when it comes to screen size, we only say – this phone has 5″ inch display and the other has 5.5″. We don’t bother about the display type because generally, we don’t have any knowledge about them.

So In this article, you will know about the basic differences between IPS-LCD and AMOLED display in the easiest way.

We all know about LCD (Liquid Crystal Display) as we are seeing this from many years in our computer monitors and televisions. Smartphone manufacturers are using this LCD in phones with some advancement and provide TFT-LCD, IPS-LCD, SIPS-LCD, super-LCD, etc. The most famous are IPS-LCD (In-Plane Switching – LCD). This is better than any other LCDs. The colour production, viewing angles, contrast ratio, everything is good. In IPS-LCD Screen, the actual display has been connected with the top most layer of your smartphone’s screen (i.e digitizer) to provide zero-gap between the actual display and phone’s screen. Only one thing which is disappointing in IPS-LCD is the black levels of this display is not up to the mark. It appears greyish-black.


LCD Technology uses a source of light as on its back panel as a backlight which keeps every pixel is in On state and restricts it to provide pure black experience. Due to this backlight, IPS-LCD consumes more power (more battery drain).

Then comes, AMOLED (Active-matrix organic – LED). In AMOLED, small LEDs has been attached with every pixel. So, when the screen is displaying something on the right part, the pixel present on the left part are in the de-active state. This helps AMOLED in producing pure black levels. The battery consumption is also very less as only necessary pixels are active at a time (Not the entire display as in IPS-LCD). The contrast ratio is also too good in AMOLED because we can see the dark part of an image or a video perfectly dark and bright part is enough bright.

So, it depends on you and your budget on which you are planning to buy a phone. Both the technologies are good for day-to-day usage and you can easily distinguish between them.
