What is OLED?
OLED, short for "organic light-emitting diode," is a type of display technology. It differs from the more widely used LCD (liquid crystal display) tech by creating light within every individual pixel that makes up its picture, instead of requiring a separate backlighting system.
- OLED displays are more prone to color-shifting.
- And OLED is also very vulnerable to burn-in.
- If you leave a certain image on an OLED screen for too long, you run the risk of that image being retained, or "burned into," the screen over time.
- OLED screens paint a much more vivid picture, and the display is so bright and so captivating, it almost doesn't look real.
OLED screens are typically more expensive, and that may be part of the reason the iPhone X is predicted to cost more than $1,000
