LCD is way brighter than oled and having faster answer time

Oled is way darker (all pixels can be switch of separately )and that's why you getting better contrast and picture.

In Future LCD can switch to micro led in this case LCD will get better than oled and still will be cheaper!

Sou yes oled now the king but in next 5 years it mostly will be killed by LCD as plazma was...

Well as we know Samsung they removed Oled and add LCD to save money but was we already know Samsung they will sell this phone for a same price like it have OLED screen :-)

The small cutout on the left for the front-facing camera is 6.7mm. It's big!!!

Spac18, 28 Nov 2018That was 5 years ago. These days oleds are better than LCDs... moreIn hardware yes but the LCD have flexibility to some extent, the curved TVs and monitors are LCD and the LCD can become like Samsung OLED edge and JDI has it for smartphones.
Also the LCD is much cheaper and equal in the colours and with miniLED as a backlit it could make the LCD-LED product even thinner. The battery optimisations could happen in other forms from the company like software and other things.
The LCD doesn't have burn ins by default like the OLED and could very high nits which is more useful for the HDR. On top of that, with miniLED they have deeper blacks because I saw a prototype from BOE and it was amazing and seemed like OLED because I thought it was OLED when I saw it first at SID display.
Also they can have fingerprint under glass in the LCD which JDI has.
The LCD being old and 50 year old tech and yet still it's excelling in every way possible.
It only a matter of time when the new LCD-miniLED backlits gets released and the people will see how amazing they're and you will in that time, "Now I'm Confused Because I Thought The OLED Was Better In Every Aspect Than The LCD"

KamAbdi, 27 Nov 2018Honestly I didn't understand what you mean but if your talk... moreThat was 5 years ago. These days oleds are better than LCDs in every aspect, not just blackness.

BiyoBiyo JunJun, 27 Nov 2018"higher is better"Honestly I didn't understand what you mean but if your talking about OLED being "higher and better", then your wrong.
LCD's are much better than the OLED. You know that microLED and miniLED can be both self emissive panels and can be used as backlight technology.

BiyoBiyo JunJun, 27 Nov 2018i thought samsung product made by themself ... according to... moreSamsung makes many products from themselves including the displays like the OLED for their phones but not LCDs, the LCDs come from LG but I'm not sure if LG makes the LCD TVs for Samsung.

Wow, the hate train is strong because of no AMOLED. I don't find the charm of AMOLED but hey at least IPS-LCD doesn't have a green dead pixel like AMOLED, and a permanent burn in like AMOLED; Even though I had a burn in from playing Ragnarok M all day, it was easily fixed.

So sit down, son! Micro-LED/Mini-LED should've been available as the next evolution of LCD.
