Buying a good smartphone is the need of the hour today. But with each passing day, many new smartphones with new features are launched. So, it’s pretty difficult to choose the right one.
So, what should we do next?

Here at GadgetsFury we will not only tell you about the best smartphones available in the marketplace, but we will also tell you about what does these “mobile specification” means.
There is no perfect smartphone in the market. But with our help, you can choose which smartphone is ‘relatively perfect’ for you!
That sounds cool right…
We will begin with some basic specifications and then we will dive deep. Make sure to give a good read so that once these articles are done, you can choose what specs you need the most and what the least. Let’s dive into phone display!

Phone Display

First comes the display. Whenever you buy a new smartphone (not Nokia 3310) it comes with a tag of HD or Full HD or HD+ or 2K display. So basically, all these are display resolutions and here is a table that will tell you how they differ from each other.

Type of display



1280 x 720

Full HD

1920 x 1080

Quad HD/ 2K

2560 x 1440


4096 x 2160

The screen resolution tells you how many pixels your screen can display horizontally and vertically. It’s written in the form 1024 x 768. The table above will only tell you the main type of displays those are present in the market. But Apple’s story is a bit different. We will cover that after sometime.

What is meant by aspect ratio?

The aspect ratio of an image describes the proportional relationship between its width and its height. It is commonly expressed as two numbers separated by a colon, as in 16:9. The most common aspect ratio today is 16:9, which means that if the width is divided into 16 equal parts, the height should be of 9 parts.

What are pixels by the way?

We know many of you are thinking that. So, here is the answer – It’s the smallest logical unit of digital imaging. In simple words suppose that the digital image that you see is divided into very minute parts or blocks. Here each of the parts is independent to show whichever colour it wants. So, a greater number of pixels on the screen will ultimately increase the quality of the image that you are going to see.

Here you have to remember one thing i.e. PPI (pixels per inch). The higher the PPI the better quality of display you will get. So, do check the PPI of the smartphone before you buy it.

Here is what our team thinks. If you are going to buy a device with a medium screen size i.e. less than 7-inches, go for a device with a full HD display because more resolution also leads to battery drainage. So, go for the full HD to get the best experience.

What is an IPS LCD screen and how is it different from the AMOLED screens?

The AMOLED screens can provide you with a better battery life. Here is why
The LCD screens display all the colours including black using a background light working behind the screen. So, the black colour is not naturally black, its produced.
In the case of AMOLED screens whenever there is a black colour on the screen the light behind that part just shuts down to provide the natural experience.
But AMOLED screens are a bit cooler in colour as compared to the IPS LCD screens. Plus, they are expensive as well.
OLED and Their subpart AMOLED are better when it comes to outdoor visibility and better viewing angles. Plus, the colours on the screen look more natural.

Apple and its unique screens.

Apple phones (iPhone) and PCs generally come with a unique IPC LCD/OLED screens which they call the retina display screens. This is one of the companies which does not design its screens according to resolution but according to PPI. For example, the earlier iPhones came with a PPI of 326(Steve jobs believed that 326 is apt for the smartphone). So, they adjusted the resolution to keep the PPI to 326. New series of iPhones like the iPhone X, XS, XS max all come with the PPI of 458.

First, always check the PPI of the smartphone before you buy it.
Second, always use the reading mode to prevent extra eye strain after the sunset.
If the display is gone, the smartphone is useless. So, make sure you take a good care of it.
