Comparison: IPS vs. AMOLED - Profolus
Both IPS panels and AMOLED panels produce more vivid colors than other LCD display technologies such as twisted nematic effect and vertical alignment technologies
both IPS and AMOLED technologies are capable of 16-bit to 32-bit RGB color depth
IPS panels, especially high-end panels, produce more accurate colors when compared against AMOLED panels.
color accuracy is important in color critical work such as photo editing, graphic design, and video editing. It is in this regard that IPS technology is a more preferable display option than AMOLED technology.
Both display technologies are able to maintain good off-axis image quality. In other words, colors and images appear relatively the same in either an IPS panel or AMOLED panel when viewed from a different angle.
side-by-side comparison of IPS panel and AMOLED panel would reveal that the latter has better viewing angle.
discrepancy between the two display technologies is considerably negligible nonetheless.
blacks in an AMOLED are presented by unused pixels or the absence of light, thus producing deeper and more natural blacks than IPS.
whites in AMOLED panels are also more natural
outdoors however, a side-by-side comparison of IPS panel and AMOLED panel would reveal that the former has better visibility
AMOLED panel has a reduced maximum brightness when compared against an IPS panel.
AMOLED panels are generally more energy efficient than IPS panels
AMOLED panels do not require backlighting unlike IPS or other LCD technologies for pixels or colors to become visible
AMOLED has become an ideal for use in battery-operated and battery devices nonetheless
Images with mostly whites or bright colors might consume around 0.7 watts while images with mostly blacks and dark colors might consume around 0.3 watts. On the other hand, typical IPS panels will consume a constant 0.35 watts regardless of what is being show on screen.
Between the two display technologies, AMOLED panels are more prone to screen burn-ins and overall color degradation.
IPS panels are also susceptible to dead pixels, their lifespan is much longer than AMOLED panels. A good IPS panel can last from 8 to 10 years without showing noticeable signs of degradation.
organic materials found in an AMOLED panel are also susceptible to water damage unlike the inorganic crystalline found in IPS panel.
