There is a turn down factor in AMOLED. The AMOLED are not good for long run as the IPS LCD. The pixels don`t retain the image quality for long period of time. Thus resulting a loss of brightness over a period of time.


The AMOLEDs are using in portable devices like smartphones and tablets. They are also used in television sets for giving a rich visual appeal to the user.
