SAMSUNG GALAXY TAB S7+ Plus
I plan on drawing on this device and that can take hours of static content. I may sleep while I draw especially when I’m just drawing to “free my mind” and that would not be the best case for AMOLED. 2. For drawing purposes, it won’t be able to retain its calibrated colors over the span of a year or two, especially for the use-case I wanted. Each color degrades unevenly no matter what you do. Check the Notes for example, the Note 9’s color cast and you’ll know why. OLED TVs have minimal issue on this case since they have granular settings for calibration, these devices doesn’t.
3. Deep blacks? Black is still black, making it “deep” is just an icing on the cake. What I want is a display that does not degrade its calibrated colors for 2 years of use or even abuse.
4. Bad at direct sunlight? That’s not an issue, in fact IPS can have brightness higher than AMOLED when in direct sunlight. Overdriving AMOLED brightness for longer periods of time will degrade them faster, that’s not an issue for an IPS display. You can have brightness at 100% all-day-long if you want.
5. If I am going to multitask which I would do a lot given that this is a tablet, I would be using split-screen most of the time. That’s a no-no for an AMOLED display. This LTPS IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen of Tab S7+ Plus is wonderful.
6. AMOLEDs at high refresh rate have varying colors based on brightness and that’s also one of my concern. If I want to use that refresh rate most of the time, I also want it to not skew the panel color on a wider span of screen brightness.
7. AMOLEDs also have auto brightness limiting (ABL) on very bright scenes. IF you’re a fan of HDR movies, then this would be one of the issue. OLEDs excel when used in a dark room. On a brightly lit room for example, the blacks on IPS won’t be an issue that much even if it’s not as deep as AMOLED.
Deep blacks are nice but I want a device with a panel that doesn’t need to be babied all the time. Most of the spectacular highlights of an AMOLED were measured when no one really took their time checking the calibrated colors after a year or two of use. AMOLEDs will degrade unevenly no matter what. It’s organic and that’s a fact, they also have the biggest depreciation rate upon ownership (compared to IPS) and that tells a lot about how disposable organic panels were.
The Amoled has punchier colors are overall better color reproduction when used in the proper m… moreOK the AMOLED will burn in so the ips is better if you wanna keep it for long but is it good under direct light or sunlight?
