Difference between Micro LED and OLED| Which one is better?

 When it comes to high-end display technologies, two names that come up frequently are OLED and Micro LED. Both technologies have their pros and cons, and they are often pitted against each other as rivals. In this blog post, we will take a closer look at OLED and Micro LED, their differences, and their advantages and disadvantages. OLED stands for Organic Light-Emitting Diode, while Micro LED stands for Micro Light-Emitting Diode. While both technologies use LEDs to create the images on the screen, they do so in different ways. OLED displays use organic compounds that emit light when an electric current is passed through them. Each pixel in an OLED display is made up of three subpixels, one for each primary color (red, green, and blue). When the pixels are turned on, they emit light, creating the image on the screen. One of the main advantages of OLED displays is that they can produce deep blacks, as each pixel can be turned off individually, resulting in no light emission. On the oth
