Irrespective of what category of users you belong to, your smartphone display will have a significant impact on your smartphone experience. After all, it’s only through the display that you consume everything your phone and the blessed internet has to offer.

The display resolution is the detail that gets the most attention, but the type of display used is equally important. AMOLED displays are the ones best suited for gratifying multimedia experience. They are characterized by deep, awesome blacks, high contrast ratio, and a bit over-saturated colors that pop. If that kind of richness is what you value above all else, here are some of the Best AMOLED display mobile phones you can buy under Rs. 20,000.

What are AMOLED displays in Mobile Phones?

If you are new to the subject, here is a brief explanation before we proceed. Unlike LCD displays, AMOLED panels don’t have a backlight. This means each pixel is powered separately. This also means the pixel can be completely turned off to render black color. Long story short, AMOLEDs have deep blacks, high contrast ratio and colors that pop. They are best suited for multimedia consumption. The whites on AMOLED used to be less bright than whites on IPS LCD panels, but that’s no longer the case anymore. AMOLED panels are also relatively light on the eyes.

Till a few years back, even the best AMOLED panels used to have an unnatural blue tint, more conspicuous on white background, but Samsung (who’s responsible for most AMOLED panels available) has fixed the issue. AMOLED screens are also more susceptible to burn-ins and degradation over a period of time, but the effect is not very noticeable throughout the normal life cycle.
