Ever stood bewildered in front of a dazzling array of smartphones, only to be faced with a barrage of acronyms: HDR, OLED, AMOLED, Super Retina, and more? You’re not alone. Although these terms are important in shaping your visual experience, for many, they remain a tech-babble.

Here at Mazuma Mobile, we want to make technology easy and accessible for everyone, so we’ve crafted this blog to serve as a handy guide. We’ll break down these confusing acronyms related to screen display technology and highlight why they matter when picking your next device. Welcome to your user-friendly display tech dictionary!

Decoding HDR: high dynamic range explained

If you’re a fan of smartphone photography, you may have heard of HDR or High Dynamic Range. It’s a photography technique that takes your photos to the next level by boosting the depth and colour range that your phone’s camera can capture. With HDR, your photos will look more vibrant and lifelike with colours and a contrast that pops.

The trick behind HDR is that it captures multiple shots at different exposures and then merges them into one. This means that even the brightest and darkest parts of your photo will be detailed and clear. The best part is that you don’t need to be a professional photographer to use it! With HDR, you can take stunning photos that catch all the subtleties of your memories, making it a must-have feature for anyone who loves taking photos. The next time you pull out your phone to snap a pic, give HDR a try – you’ll be amazed at the difference it can make!

Understanding OLED: organic light emitting diodes demystified

When it comes to exceptional visuals on smartphones, Organic Light Emitting Diodes (OLED) screens are leading the way. These self-emissive diodes light up and off individually, providing deep blacks and a high contrast ratio, providing an astoundingly vibrant, lifelike picture quality. With their thin, lightweight, and flexible design, OLED displays look great on any smartphone, but we do have a few favourites. The Samsung Galaxy S24 collection, for instance, all have that stunning OLED display, so if you want to experience the wow factor on your next phone, use our Samsung Trade-in services and sell us your old Samsung device!

Or, if you’re on the other side of the iOS/Android debate, you could go for the iPhone XS with an OLED screen that is sure to blow your mind! If Apple is more your cup of tea, feel free to sell your iPhone to us so you can start experiencing the immersive display of an OLED screen.

Level up: trade your old Nintendo Switch for cash towards the OLED model

It’s important for us to point out that OLED screens aren’t limited to smartphones; they’re found in games consoles, too. If you’re eager for a console upgrade, then your old Nintendo Switch could be your golden ticket to the dazzling display of the new OLED model. At Mazuma Mobile, we make the transition seamless and rewarding by offering cash for your current device. The latest OLED model promises enhanced visual experiences with those vibrant colours and deeper contrasts we mentioned before, perfect for immersing yourself in your favourite gaming worlds. Why let your old console collect dust when it can help pave the way to a superior gaming experience? Make the smart jump to OLED with Mazuma Mobile and sell your old Nintendo Switch to discover the difference.

Breaking down AMOLED: Active Matrix Organic Light Emitting Diodes uncovered

AMOLED is like a mix of amazing OLED technology and an active matrix that gives you a stunning, responsive screen. With AMOLED, every pixel is controlled by a thin-film transistor array, giving you precise control over colour and brightness that results in super deep blacks, vibrant colours, and higher contrast ratios. It’s like having a miniature cinema in your pocket! The best part is that AMOLED screens consume less power, so you can enjoy superior performance and longer battery life.

There are many phones with this impressive tech, such as the OnePlus 12 and OnePlus 12R, so if you’re all about having the best screen technology in your next smartphone, why not sell your old OnePlus phone and upgrade?

Illuminate your world with Super Retina

Super Retina is Apple’s exclusive display technology that makes for an amazing smartphone viewing experience. With high pixel density, Super Retina offers sharper and more detailed images, giving you crystal clear visuals on your screen. This groundbreaking technology combines custom OLED screens with HDR10 and Dolby Vision support, which means you get to enjoy vibrant colours, deeper blacks, and higher contrast ratios. One of the best features of this display is that the True Tone technology ensures you have a comfortable viewing experience in every light condition. A Super Retina screen is not just a smartphone display; it’s a window to an incredible digital world!
