Difference between TFT Screen and Gorilla Glass and IPS LCD


Thin-Film-Transistor Liquid-Crystal-Display (TFT LCD) is a type of LCD using TFT technology mainly to improve Addressability and Contrast.

Features of TFT LCD:

1.It is a type of active matrix LCD display added as a counterpoint to passive matrix LCD.

2.Mainly used these days in Television sets, Mobile phones, handheld video game devices, projectors and various other budget devices.

3.Active Matrix LCDS are lot cheaper to produce so they are commonly used in low and average budget phones and other display devices.

Dark side :
Large TFT LCD requires more power so they dissipate more battery

In-Place Switching LCD is superior to TFT LCD as they provide wider viewer angles and consumption of less power resulting in low battery usage.

Areas of IPS LCD:

IPS-LCDs are costlier than normal TFT LCD and hence are found only on higher end smartphones. A higher resolution (640 x 960 pixels) version of IPS LCD is used in Apple iPhone 4 and is called Retina Display because of its brilliant picture quality.

Gorilla Glass
It is a special alkali-aluminosilicate glass shield with exceptional damage resistance that helps protect mobile displays from scratches, drops, and bumps of everyday use. Many companies like Motorola, Samsung and Nokia are now using Gorilla Glass to make their mobile displays more durable and reliable. It is always better to go for a smartphone with Gorilla Glass for that added protection and peace of mind.

Passive and Active Matrix 

LCDs use a simple grid to supply the charge to a particular pixel on the display. Creating the grid is quite a process! It starts with two glass layers called substrates
LCDs depend on thin film transistors (TFT). Basically, TFTs are tiny switching transistors and capacitors.

  1. which display is better for smart phone between ips display and gorilla display

    1. ips display is for good display quality and viewing angles...
      gorilla glass is just for protection...if you want good picture quality then go for ips display...

  2. gorilla glass i am using in my smartphone and it is working very smooth....

  3. gorilla glass i am using in my smartphone and it is working very smooth....

  4. I would remark that some technologies are better than others depending on application.
    For example, passive matrix OLED are great on small displays (below 2" or 256x256 matrix) in terms of power consumption, dark environment usage and quality.
