AMOLED vs. LCD displays
The Apple Watch has an AMOLED display, which is different from the LCD displays in all iPhone models, though several Android-based phones have one too.
What do you think about the pros and cons of this choice?
Pros: saves more on battery, thinner and lighter than LCD, especially the plastic-backed flexible kind that Apple is using.
Cons: 10,000 hour lifespan compared to 60,000 or more for LCD. Actually that's just one con (that I found) but it's a significant one.
Apple is well aware of both sides and made the informed decision to go with AMOLED.
Are you excited or perturbed? Both?
Personally I'm excited because for me the pros outweigh the con (which = about 5 years if you stare at it for 5 full hours a day, closer to 14 if the screen is on for 2 hours a day; I'll bet most will use the lit screen for less than an hour a day all told).
