Read on, folks to learn a bit about AMOLED and LCD displays.
AMOLED Vs LCD
Now that I have told you about the app, let me tell you a little about AMOLED display and how it differs from an LCD one in a very simple way. An AMOLED (Active Matrix Organic Light Emitting Diodes) display lights up individual pixels (hence, the Active Matrix in AMOLED) containing minute Organic LEDs when an adequate or the right voltage current is supplied. As a result, only the pixels required to show colours other than black get lit. The screen completely shuts off the pixels displaying black colour, thus proudly achieving an infinite contrast ratio and also better power efficiency. However, an LCD (Liquid Crystal Display) employs a backlight that is white in colour which is basically an array of conventional LEDs arranged behind the LCD panel that shines light through individual pixels. As a result, regardless of the colour shown, an LCD display’s backlight is always on, falling short in the contrast ratio and power efficiency department.
More than enough said, now let’s go through the app as depicted in the screenshots below. Let’s take a look at the main screen, various categories of wallpapers available for download and more.
