Nowadays, consumers are paying more and more attention to the specifications and configurations of mobile phones. One of them is the specifications of the screen; and now in a dazzling array of mobile phones, most of the mobile phone screen refresh rates are 60Hz and 120Hz. If you choose, Would you choose an LCD screen with a 120Hz refresh rate or an AMOLED screen with a 60Hz refresh rate? If you are considering buying a new phone, you might as well read this article first.
Let’s first look at the advantages and disadvantages of LCD 120Hz / AMOLED 60Hz screens. LCD is a lower cost screen type than AMOLED. On the contrary, AMOLED is expensive, but it has advantages in many aspects. From the perspective of viewing effects, AMOLED screens have better color rendering (including black) than LCD screens. If you like to use dark mode, AMOLED screens can definitely meet your needs.
In terms of fluency, the higher the refresh rate of the mobile phone, the smoother the mobile experience, which can run smoothly regardless of mobile phone sliding, game playing, and other usage scenarios. Therefore, the experience of a 120Hz LCD screen is better than an AMOLED screen with a refresh rate of only 60Hz. If you are a heavy player of mobile games, it is recommended to choose a screen with a higher refresh rate.
However, a screen with a high refresh rate means that the mobile phone needs to consume more energy. In particular, the frequency of redrawing on a 120Hz LCD screen is twice that of a 60Hz AMOLED, which naturally makes the mobile phone consume more power. If you are used to saving power, it is better to choose a 60Hz AMOLED screen.
In addition, users can also determine the required screen specifications according to their own needs. If you are just a general user, playing small games, browsing social media, watching movies and listening to music and other entertainment, choosing a 60Hz AMOLED screen is more than enough.
Although the smoothness of the 60Hz AMOLED screen is inferior to that of the 120Hz LCD screen, as long as you are not a heavy mobile game player, there will be no significant difference. Because the 60Hz AMOLED screen is very sufficient for the average user, in addition to saving power, if you use it to watch movies, the screen colors will be more beautiful.
The 120Hz IPS LCD screen is definitely the first choice for those who love mobile games or heavy players. The higher the refresh rate, the lower the delay rate, so that the phenomenon of smear can be avoided when playing games. AMOLED and LCD will not have much impact on the screen refresh rate, they are mainly different in color and image quality.
If you are using an AMOLED screen, there will be a noticeable difference when you switch to an LCD screen with a refresh rate of 120Hz, because your eyes are used to brightly colored screens.
Conversely, users who switch from an LCD 120Hz screen to an AMOLED 60Hz screen may be disappointed with its smoothness, but will forget that the refresh rate is only 60Hz because of the overall picture quality.
The advantages and disadvantages of the LCD 120Hz and AMOLED 60Hz screens have been briefly introduced above. It should be noted that this is not the difference between the more general LCD and AMOLED screens, but the difference between 120Hz LCD and 60Hz AMOLED.
If you are considering buying a new mobile phone, you can first take your own habits and usage as a measure, and choose according to your own usage and eye comfort. Remember that there is no best screen, only the one that suits you best. screen.
