How To Get Your Phone To Provide The Best Possible Display?

Earlier phone screen was all about convenience over quality. But nowadays, phones are used as a primary screen for movies, for social videos and for everything. People who travel a lot are likely to watch a lot of videos, movies on their phone. So now while purchasing phones people look for a good phone screen.

Here Are Some Tips To Choose The Right Phone Display 

Screen size is a matter of preference. Larger displays are preferable if you watch a lot of videos, play games. Google Pixel XL, iPhone 7 plus and Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge all are focusing on 5.5-inch + screen. LG G6 came up with a 5.7-inch screen, whereas Samsung Galaxy S8 came up with a 5.8-inch display. The most important thing to be considered is the display technology. IPS LCD and AMOLED are in a battle to prove their display technology superior to others. LCD is displayed on iPhone 7 and 7 plus, however, AMOLED having wider viewing angles and better power efficiency is soon going to dominate the Smartphone market.

How To Choose The Right Shape
Long ago 16:9 aspect ratios were universal among smart phones, but many Smartphone companies have already toted 18:9 and 18.5:9 screens. Having a small area of black around the edge of the video increases the human eye’s perception of contrast. Sloping edges may make the video look less punchy.

How To Choose Right Phone Resolution
You don’t need a 4k phone. HDR with better highlights, deeper contrast looks amazing on a phone. The display of the phone should be bright so that it would be easy to use it outdoors. AMOLED is better than LCD in this regard.

How To Watch A Film
It’s not always the pixels that matter resolution of the video also matters. If you are downloading videos from Amazon prime video apps or Netflix then you have to pay for the top quality videos.
