    Always on display now

    Here is a thought, and not sure why it’s never been implemented, but we have OLED displays on these newer iPhones. Why can’t they just have small notifications like flashing circles or even icons that have notifications? They could take up a minuscule amount of pixels, do the pixel shift thing...

    Other Will iPhone use higher PWM dimming frequency in future?

    I am now using iPhone 13 Pro Max which equiped with a quite low PWM frequency (238hz) OLED screen. I feel uncomfortable compare the iPhone 13 Pro Max to my previous iPhone XR. There's already a higher PWM dimming frequency as high as 1920hz, but Samsung still uses 240hz or 480hz in OLED, And I...

    iPhone 13 OLED burn in

    Coming from a Galaxy S8, I considered getting an iPhone 13, but since it comes with an OLED, is there a large risk of screen burn in? I don't have any problems with my Samsung, but I know the OLED on an iPhone is different than an AMOLED screen on Galaxy S phones. Should I be good with the 13?

    iPhone 13 Pro 120Hz LTPO Baby’s Bottom

    I’ve been waiting what feels like forever for a 120Hz AMOLED iPhone and at long last it’s here! I even bought a Galaxy S20 just to try 120Hz AMOLED and never put my SIM card in it haha. AMOLED’s response time is MUCH faster than LCD’s so you can’t compare 120Hz on the iPad’s to this. This is on...

    M1 Mac Mini @ 120hz ?

    Hi, I have seen people stating somewhere on Reddit that it is possible to run M1 Mac Mini at 120hz with the LG OLED TV even though it uses HDMI 2.0 only. I have tried multiple HDMI cables already, and USB-C to HDMI 2.1 adapters. Is there any way to get the 120hz running ? TV: LG OLED55CX5LB...

    Disney Plus and Filmmaker Mode?

    While I can get Dolby Vision with Disney Plus on my Apple TV 4K, I’ve noticed that it doesn’t give me the option for filmmaker mode. Maybe this picture setting is reserved for purchased or rented movies, for example, as opposed to streaming content?

    Would My Apple TV 4K and LG CX OLED TV Benefit from an HDMI 2.1 Cable?

    I’m currently using an HDMI 2.0 cable. Would I benefit by upgrading to an HDMI 2.1 cable? As far as future proofing goes, I wonder if the next Apple TV hardware will take advantage of the HDMI 2.1 technology.

    iPhone 12 IPhone 12 OLED - black smearing

    I wrote a post already on this, but I didn’t know how to call the issue. I have since learnt it’s called OLED smearing. I understand that all OLED screens do it a bit, but I do not know if my screen is worse than others, from this point of view. Can you test if the same happens on your OLED...

    iPhone 12 iPhone 12 OLED Quality

    Has anyone seen any reviews about the OLED screen quality of the iPhone 12 vs 12 Pro? The rumor has been that BOE would be supplying the OLED's for the iPhone 12 and Samsung for the 12 Pro. Initially BOE's quality didn't meet Apples standards, but it sounds like they got the go ahead for the 12.

    Other This is why I will not buy iPhone 12: OLED = PWM
