    OLED uses organic materials which makes it worse then Micro LED. Both are similar technology which lights up each pixel with its own light source which means it doesn’t need a backlight like LCD displays do which is why they have better blacks since they turn off.
    OK thanks for the explanation.

    Why do organic materials make OLED worse than micro LED?

    Doesn’t last as long. Partly why burn in is easier with OLED displays vs LCD. With micro Led displays the display will have a longer life span generally speaking.

    I'd argue that OLED lasts "long enough" for almost anyone in a cell phone. You'll still see people using the older Samsung Galaxy's (5 or so years old) and not feeling the need to upgrade. The issue some might actually notice is that the display will dim overtime; such as being harder to see in bright light. Though I think the burn in issue is the biggest thing people have problems with on an OLED.

    I agree but a fact is a fact and OLED doesn’t last as long as Micro OLED displays because of the fact it’s use of organic materials. Burn in isn’t really an issue considering I’ve had plenty of phones with OLED displays and never had an issue in regular use.

    Never had an issue with burn in and didn’t do anything special to prevent it really. Just used my phone like I would and never gotten it . Just make sure you have the screen turn off at some point

    The question of whether OLED or LED is better, you just can not answer. The main difference lies in the illumination of the pixels and thus in the brightness. In short, one could say: With OLED, the pixels themselves shine, while an LED lcd screen always needs a backlight. Yes, according to construction principle but can also come out very good results. Me personally, I like OLED for the less battery consumption on any mobile device especially in dark mode. More battery equals more fun.

    What ? OLED factually produces better blacks period. It’s impossible for a LCD display to have better blacks because the technology prohibits it. OLED is factually better for battery life with everything else being equal. It’s also factually that As far as I know you need OLED for VR at least with Android devices with the google dream vr thing. Color saturation is a personal choice

    That's not necessarily true. An LCD display with local backlight dimming can also achieve excellent black levels.

    No mobile device that I know of has local dimming, but it is used in some high-end TVs and monitors.

    That's also not necessarily true. It depends what is on the display. OLED will generally use less power when most of the screen is relatively dark, and LCD will generally use less power when most of the screen is relatively bright.

    Hmm. This claim is debatable. The fact is that there are no practical micro-LED displays available for smartphones (or larger devices) today. They might become available in the future but we can't really say much about their longevity at this stage.

    Longevity isn't really a problem with OLED screens today. They are likely to last at least as long as the rest of the device. Burn-in is potentially an issue though.

    Short answer...YES. OLED is better in my honest opinion.
