The description also includes various factsheet secrets that you may like to know. Hope that the below explanation helps in solving all doubts regarding your mobile phone preferred purchase. Get the best performance capability touchscreen according to your budget and usability requirement.

If your work life involves night time traveling or you prefer to watch movies in private on a portable device then all AMOLED variants are suited for you. With crisp LED based picture quality wherein BLACK is ABSOLUTE BLACK you get to enjoy entertainment at leisure.

You may have witnessed it yourself, most mobile phone screens look cheap in sunlight especially the Capacitive and Resistive touch screen ones. You then doubt if whether your old Nokia phone had a better build quality. The problem is with brightness and this issue gets sorted with AMOLED screen, hence all AMOLED based screens work fine in DayLight.

If you are not satisfied with the AMOLED quality in sunlight then you can go for Super AMOLED i.e. SLCD screen which is a bit costlier but it is worth the money especially if you are working on-field.

If you want true natural looking colors, want picture to look more realistic then again you can opt for SLCD.

Just like BLACK is TRUE BLACK, WHITES are TRUE WHITES in case of S-LCD, but then again MONEY is HIGH MONEY too. Hopefully in near future the prices will go south and even better picture quality will be achieved.

Some people love it when their phones screen displays the perfect contrast, hence for then S-LCD is the prominent suggestion.

Super AMOLED plus is a step ahead in race with Super AMOLED as it exhibits pen tile technology which means that in Super AMOLED plus 3 sub-pixels form 1 pixel in contrast to 2 sub pixels forming 1 pixel in Super Amoled.

Speaking about TRUE WHITE and TRUE BLACK picture quality, it should be noted that not everybody may like TRUE WHITE as it would add to glare effect and tire your eyes, Simple AMOLED screens are best to opt in such circumstances as the whites tend to blend towards blue (cold) side and they can not deliver true whites.

For Brightness: S-LCD are the best, also they help in saving a lot of power. It should be noted that all AMOLED variants provide a better viewing angle i.e. they do not show as black patches from certain viewing angles.

Shockingly, the best touch screen in the industry is attributed to LG. It manufactures LED backlit IPS LCD display which is used in iPhone, iPad and iPod - No wonder that people love their iPhone touch experience.

If you want to buy a future perfect touch screen base mobile phone then we suggest that you opt for Super AMOLED touch screen based mobile phone which would provide a resolution higher than 280 ppi i.e. 280 pixels per inch. There are many phones in the market with such specs, the only thing you need to do is SEARCH :-)

The above factsheet has been published to displace your confusion and ease up the buying decision making for you. These trivia facts have been well researched upon, but still it is recommended that you check up or verify it with mobile phone seller before you make the penultimate decision. It is a known fact that with passage of time, the old resistive based screens which do not allow for multi-touch would be phased out of market and so would the capacitive multi touch ones, what remains a trivia is what technology is going to dethrone the supremacy of AMOLED based screens. SUPER AMOLED screens are already available in the market. SUPER AMOLED Plus and HD SUPER AMOLED have started making inroads so will SUPER AMOLED Advanced be the best touch screen to be launched for a while? An answer to this question still remains unanswered.
