Continuing our discussion about Smartphone features , today I will tell something more about displays.

1.Display

C. Amolded vs LCD vs Retina

Amolded displays can be considered as OLED displays as they have most of the features same.OLED displays have much purer blacks and consume less energy when black or darker colors are displayed on-screen. However, lighter-colored themes on AMOLED screens use considerably more power than an LCD using the same theme. OLED screens are also more expensive to produce than LCD.

On the positive side, AMOLED screens can be made thinner than LCDs (because they don’t require a backlit layer) and they can also be made flexible.

Retina is another marketing term, this time from Apple. A Retina display is not defined by a specific characteristic, other than that it is supposedly of sufficient resolution that the human eye can’t discern pixels at a normal viewing distance and has a pixel density over 300 ppi.

Now still the question remains

Which display is better?

If you have read above post carefully, you have noticed that it’s all game between pros and cons. It is not that certain display is better than other and not like it is completely different . So far you are not a professional user like you want to test mobile at such a high extent or you are a very specific user , there must not be any problem in buying any of Retina or LCD or OLED displays.

Conclusion of Display Section:

1. Buy display having minimum ppi 350 ( except you are buying iPhone as they          measure it in different manner)

2. Buy FULL HD with preference over HD screen if you have enough money in pocket.

3. As far as you are not a professional user , there is no problem in buying any of LCD or OLED or retina.

So guys I have decided to dedicate some next articles of Tech News to some smartphone features which are important when we buy new smartphone and always confuse which to buy…

1.Display

a. Screen Resolution

Screen resolution is basically the amount of pixels in the screen. The more pixels a screen has, the clearer the display will be. If the screen has enough pixels, the human eye cannot see them—which is where the term “retina display” comes from. Therefore, a high resolution display enables you to see more on the screen with much more clarity and detail. When buying a phone, make sure the display has a resolution of 1280 by 720 or higher.

b. HD vs FULL HD

If you are buying smartphone, you have probably encountered the terms 1080p and 720p. These are actually shorthand monikers for the resolution of screen itself. The main difference between 1080p and 720p is the number of pixels that they have.

1080p has a resolution of 1920 by 1080 pixels while 720p has a resolution of 1280 by 720 pixels; resulting in respective pixel counts of over 2 million and slightly over 920 thousand. Resolution is important in relation to the size of your display and how close you would be to it. Of course, a higher resolution is better for bigger displays as well as when you need to have the display close.

The processor needs to crunch more than twice the number of pixels, it needs to be more powerful to cope with the load. The capability of the processor is the reason why some devices can only playback 720p video while others are able to playback 1080p.

Summary :

1. 1080p has way more pixels than 720p.

2. 1080p is better suited for larger displays than 720p.

3. 1080p is more demanding on the hardware than 720p.

4. You should prefer FULL HD (1080p) over HD(720p) if possible.

Read the email Apple CEO Tim Cook sent to employees about US President Donald Trump’s immigration order

The US President Donald Trump’s immigration order has received widespread criticism from the IT industry.This is what apple CEO Tim Cook wrote to employees in the email:

Team,

In my conversations with officials here in Washington this week, I’ve made it clear that Apple believes deeply in the importance of immigration — both to our company and to our nation’s future. Apple would not exist without immigration, let alone thrive and innovate the way we do.

I’ve heard from many of you who are deeply concerned about the executive order issued yesterday restricting immigration from seven Muslim-majority countries. I share your concerns. It is not a policy we support.

There are employees at Apple who are directly affected by yesterday’s immigration order. Our HR, Legal and Security teams are in contact with them, and Apple will do everything we can to support them. We’re providing resources on AppleWeb for anyone with questions or concerns about immigration policies. And we have reached out to the White House to explain the negative effect on our coworkers and our company.

As I’ve said many times, diversity makes our team stronger. And if there’s one thing I know about the people at Apple, it’s the depth of our empathy and support for one another. It’s as important now as it’s ever been, and it will not weaken one bit. I know I can count on all of you to make sure everyone at Apple feels welcome, respected and valued.

Apple is open. Open to everyone, no matter where they come from, which language they speak, who they love or how they worship. Our employees represent the finest talent in the world, and our team hails from every corner of the globe.

In the words of Dr Martin Luther King, “We may have all come on different ships, but we are in the same boat now.”
