Giz Explains: How To Not Be Wrong When You're Talking About Smartphone Displays

A lot of amazing engineering and design goes into making your smartphone. And smartphone displays are one of the most important parts — they’re your window onto the internet, and the world. But the technical terms we use to describe them can be pretty confusing. Here’s how to sound like you know what you’re talking about when it comes to displays.


Is OLED Dead At Samsung?

At last year’s CES, we heard how OLED was the future of TV. Blacker blacks, more vibrant colour and dangerously sexy curves. Flash forward a year and Samsung is cheering for a new technology: SUHD TV, powered by Quantum Dot technology. But what of OLED? Can you still buy a great Samsung OLED TV in 2015?


LG's Curved OLED TVs Now Come With Swarovski Stands Because Why Not

Image Cache: Is your $10,000 TV not sparkly enough? Why not try on LG’s new Curved OLED TVs with Swarovski stands. That’s a thing at this year’s CES.


LG's Ludicrous 8K TV Is Too Insane For My Eyes To Handle

4K is for losers. The real mind-blowing screens at this CES are the giant 8K prototypes that will seriously blast your eyeballs. I just saw LG’s 98-inch 4K-times-four OLED screen, and yes, it was absolutely insane. I’m not sure exactly how insane though because my eyes just aren’t good enough.


LG Curved OLED Vs Sony 4K LCD: Which TV Tech Reigns Supreme?

It’s not an easy time to be shopping for a new TV. Do you want that crisp 4K resolution, or a gorgeous new OLED display? Unless you have tens of thousands of dollars burning a hole in your pocket, you can’t have them both in the same screen. Which is why we decided to pit them against each other.


Why Is OLED Different And What Makes It So Great?

I have seen the future of high definition displays and lo, it is glorious. Not to mention rollable, foldable, and clearly superior to LCD/LED — really every other panel technology available today.


Tri-Fold Touchscreen OLED Could Give You Way More Smartphone Real Estate

In addition to satellites and computers smaller than a giant room, Arthur C. Clarke also predicted mobile touchscreen devices that could be crumpled up like a handkerchief and stuffed in a pocket. Thanks to researchers at Japan’s Semiconductor Energy Laboratory company, we’re almost there.


LG's New Curved, Ultra HD, OLED TVs Are A Triple Threat

We’ve talked in the last couple of years about the ceaseless march of R&D when it comes to the displays on TV, and the downsides that come with it. 4K is new, OLED is new, curved panels are new — and they’re (almost) never seen in the same TV. If you don’t know which is the superior tech, and which to choose for your next TV, don’t worry. LG has made the right decision for you — all of them.


OLED Wallpaper Could Be The Future Of Lighting

It’s the Star Trek-inspired future we were promised — walls that glow and change colour, perhaps with just a gentle voice command. And it’s finally (almost) possible thanks to a series of advances in OLED sheets. This new lighting solution also uses half as much energy than existing fluorescent lights. It is, however, pretty expensive.


The First 4K OLED TV You Can Buy Will Cost $12,000

OLED has taken its sweet time to arrive in 4K sets, but now LG has announced that the first such set is about to go on sale. And this thing looks good enough to fall in love with.
