Whether you’re a fellow movie-buff, an avid video-gamer, or fond of clicking pictures, one thing we all want from our smartphones is a dynamic display. However, most of us tend to get so caught up in features like processing power, software and battery life that we neglect some very crucial display characteristics.
A phone’s display has a hoard of important factors: right from screen size, pixel density to resolution, which go a long way in influencing our smartphone experience. Here’s a list of 6 display essentials that we all need to know.
1) LCD Or AMOLED- What’s Your Pick?
Most smartphones sport either an IPS LCD or AMOLED display. What’s the difference between the two, you ask? An LCD display has a screen that emits light through the individual pixels, as a result of which the display is bright and has extremely clean whites. On the other hand, in an AMOLED screen, each pixel produces its own light – which results in boosted colours, and naturally higher saturation.
So, if you’re looking for a smartphone that’ll make your Instagram images pop, go for an AMOLED display! It also has better viewing angles, which make it ideal for played graphic-intensive video games and watching movies.
The One Plus 7 series has AMOLED screens which offer more vivid colours and deeper contrasts than their LCD-bearing competitors.

2) Colour Scale Matters
A phone’s ability to switch between various colours and tones has a significant impact on the light entering the user’s eyes, which in turn affects the fatigue levels. The IPS screen does complete justice to colours – perfecting everything from colour consistency to temperature. It also displays enhanced contrasts, which adds to an immersive video watching experience.
3) Battery Dies Too Soon? Perhaps Your Phone Display Is Responsible!
Does your phone’s battery play spoilsport when you’re following a very important match? Or right in the middle of a super catchy video? If yes, you’re not alone. Phone batteries can be a bummer, but perhaps our phone’s display is to be blamed. Smartphone displays are among the biggest consumers of battery life.
What’s the solution? Opt for an AMOLED display, where every independent pixel produces light. Here, a black pixel is just “off”, thus consuming no power at all! Better battery backup equals AMOLED displays, and there’s no two questions about it.
4) Entertainment! Entertainment! Entertainment!
There’s no denying that the quality of your phone’s display ultimately determines its entertainment value. Whether you’re watching a video, playing a game, or clicking pictures, there’s no fun if the display lags behind! So compare the tech-specs of the upcoming smartphone models carefully before taking a call- right from the aspect ratio to the pixel density.If you’re a mobile-movie junkie, the OnePlus 7 Pro stands unrivalled – thanks to its 6.67-inch fluid-AMOLED screen which supports HDR 10 and HDR 10+ content!

5) How Durable Is Your Smartphone?
We’ve all had that “mini-heart-attack” moment when we nearly dropped our new smartphones for the first time. But luckily for us, a lot of smartphones these days are equipped with a Gorilla glass- which is better for surviving knocks and bumps.

The OnePlus 7, with a 6.41 inch bezel-less display and a water-drop notch is priced at Rs 32,999.
