Complete Guide on LCDs

What is the LCD on a mobile phone?

A liquid crystal display is the most common display type among mobile phones because of its low power consumption and good image quality. They are generally easy to read, even under direct sunlight. The smallest element of an image displayed on an LCD is the pixel.

Do I need to replace digitizer or LCD?

Glass is the same as digitizer. The LCD is a different component from the digitizer/glass, but sometimes they are attached to each other. If your damage is detectable by touch, and you know that it is the front, the digitizer/glass needs replacement.

We repair any kind of mobile devices, cell phones, tablet & laptops. To book a repair job now, please call us on 08 8342 0008

What is a Touchscreen?

6. Save a web page

A touch screen is both an input and output device and normally layered on the top of an electronic visual display of an information processing system.

The display is often an LCD or OLED display while the system is usually a laptop computer, tablet, or smartphone. A user can give input or control the information processing system through simple or multi-touch gestures by touching the screen with a special stylus or one or more fingers.

Some touchscreens use ordinary or specially coated gloves to work while others may only work using a special stylus or pen. The user can use the touchscreen to react to what is displayed and, if the software allows, to control how it is displayed; for example, zooming to increase the text size.

The touch screen enables the user to interact directly with what is displayed, rather than using a mouse, touchpad, or other such devices. Following are some different types of displays:

  1. LCD: LCD means Liquid Crystal Display, and its name refers to the array of liquid crystals illuminated by a backlight, and their ubiquity and relatively low-cost makes them a popular choice for smartphones and many other devices. LCDs also tend to perform quite well in direct sunlight, as the entire display is illuminated from behind, but does suffer from potentially less accurate colour representation than displays that don’t require a backlight.
  • AMOLED: AMOLED stands for Active Matrix Organic Light-Emitting Diode. AMOLED displays have an extremely fast refresh rate too, but on the downside are not quite as visible in direct sunlight as backlit LCDs.
  • OLED: OLED is an organic material that, like the name implies, emits light when a current is passed through it.
  • Retina Display: A Retina display is not defined by a specific characteristic, other than that it is supposedly of sufficient resolution that the human eye can’t discern pixels at a normal viewing distance and has a pixel density over 300 ppi.

We replace all types of displays on most devices. In case you are confused with all the jargon and information that is available online, then head to the nearest GR Phones store. We will be happy to help. We repair all types of iPhones, iPads, tablets, laptops etc.
