Yet another OLED question . . .
Posted by: mspace
Date: March 28, 2021 10:03AM
In my learning about all the good/bad with OLED screens on phones, it was mentioned that they dim with use and time.

How does that affect buying/selling a used OLED phone? Anything one should be aware of?

Thanks for the continuing education!

I’m not worried about any phone sold in the last three years. Samsung and LG have OLEDs down.

I would check the screen of any used phone if buy regardless.

Of course, checking the screen. But what is the average shelf life of that type of screen?

What's the oldest screen of that type ok to buy, say having been used 6 hours a day average?

FYI, LED-backlit screens also dim over time.



It is what it is.

This.

All my screens seldom see 50% brightness, and almost never more than that.

I wasn't aware of 'shelf life' for an OLED screen.






I am that Masked Man.

Your boos mean nothing to me, I've seen what you cheer for.

Insisting on your rights without acknowledging your responsibilities isn’t freedom, it’s adolescence.

I've been to the edge of the map, and there be monsters.

We are a government of laws, not men.

Everybody counts or nobody counts.

When a good man is hurt,
all who would be called good
must suffer with him.

You and I have memories longer than the road that stretches out ahead.

There is no safety for honest men except
by believing all possible evil of evil men.

An armed society is a polite society.
And hope is a lousy defense.

You make me pull, I'll put you down.

I *love* SIGs. It's Glocks I hate.

At the same rate? That would give me an idea in general.

I bet the rate are engineered to be similar.

I'm honestly not sure what the concern is. I've owned all sorts of Apple devices, and the screens have lived long and healthy lives. The latest OLEDs in the iPhone X models are not showing more rapid aging than other iPhones; we had one in daily use until a few months ago, used daily for 3+ years and the screen was still fine.

Not concerned. Just trying to understand the newer tech in its real time/practical applications. Some of the articles I've been reading have mentioned things in the forefront, so it made me curious if OLED is really that much more fragile than LED in it's real usage.
