Vaio, 02 Apr 2019they do wrong decision, they should direct invest to Micro LEDgetaholic1959289

Genius, Micro Leds are far from massive market, and OLED is foreseeable future king, LCD on a verge of dying and being relegated to low mod range to low end phones. If they not going to make oleds now, there will be no Japan Display left than Micro leds will come to market

Cir90, 01 Apr 2019Oled for TV And phones or only phones?Phones. OLED for TVs are a nightmare. They look spectacular at first, but the brightness is so high that they have even worse burn-in, so after 2 or 3 years you're regretting the purchase and looking at an LCD replacement. World's largest OLED manufacturer Samsung doesn't offer a single OLED TV, that's pretty telling.

Good luck with dealing with Tim Crook and Crapple.
You will need it.

Geez man, just look at what article you're posting your comment on. Japan Display needs to be bailed out by Chinese investors because their business isn't competitive anymore lol..

In the 2010s, South Korea stepped up the gas and overtook Japan in the consumer electronics sector. Now in the upcoming 2020s, it'll be Chinese companies accelerating past South Korea. New brands replacing the old, the cycle repeats every 5-10 years..

I used it daily for about 3 years in low light condition most of the time.

Big LoL. most of the Chinese companies are just copying and pasting the tech invented by others. Just because they are providing same stuffs for less and you bought doesn't mean it's their innovation. Japan is still the top dog when comes to invention and innovation.

Note9 User, 02 Apr 2019Exactly my experience with 3.5 years of using the S6 as a daily ... moreI've been using the S8+ since August and so for no issues with the display. It's always set to auto-brightness, but I admit I don't use it that often outside.
Anyways, my next phone will probably be the Xperia 1 because I absolutely love that tall display and it has no silly NOtch or punch hole.

Theres a reason why Huawei uses them

This is very encouraging news. If China can get past its past prejudices and work with (instead of hating) Japan (and maybe Korea) as equals the region will do well. As long as they keep their Mao Mk2 attitudes and remain unforgiving about history they'll languish.

Although the production yield of the oled matters, so It was wised for Sony to go for Samsung since their oled panel has high yield rate.

Either way, I don't see how this is greatly beneficial?

They agreed to fund half the cost of the factory that would take 3 years to be built. Now the factory is a few months away from being built and Apple has told JDI they don't need the supply because of falling sales.
