QLED vs OLED: Difference between both technologies and which one is better.

The previous blog highlighted the technology and working of OLED and QLED televisions. If you have not checked that out click on this link to know about it.


There are many differences between both the technologies, before you make any decision to shell out your hard earned money, we will be comparing both the technologies based on Brightness, contrast, viewing angles, response time and lifespan.

Black levels and contrast:
The difference between the brightest and the darkest part of an image is known as contrast. So if your TV can make true dark blacks then it does not have to work hard on making brighter parks extra bright to achieve good levels of contrast. Due to this reason, OLED reigns as the undisputed champion because of its ability to go completely black when it needs to.

Whereas QLED TVs are forced to dim their LED backlight and block the light, which is very hard to do perfectly. Due to this reason the issue of “light bleed” (as the light spills onto what’s supposed to be a black section of the screen.) is most common in these type of TV’s.

Brightness:
Well in this area the QLED TVs have a considerable advantage because they use separate backlightthat can be made incredibly bright. Due to this reason you can enjoy a picture quality so bright that can be seen clearly in even most brightly lit rooms.
OLED panels doesnn’t even come close in the matter of brightness. This is due to the inability of light-emitting individual pixels to produce enough amount of light. So in brightly lit room you can face a problem with the brightness. Also HDR experience can be a bitter in OLED TV’s.

Color Accuracy:
There was a time when OLED blew away the competition in terms of picture quality. But with the use of quantum dots in QLED TVs they have stepped forward in terms of color accuracy, wider range of saturated colors at extreme brightness levels are an advantage. Well we would say both the technologies deliver same amount of color accuracy until we get a solid evidence regarding mind-blowing color accuracy of QLED panels.

Response time:
The amount of time taken by individual pixel to switch from one state to another is known response time. With the increase in response time the images become more crisper, especially during fast-action scenes OLED have dominated the market with response time of just 0.1 millisecond whereas the QLED have response time of   2-8 milliseconds.

Viewing angle:
This has been a limitation of  all LED TV’s and  this has been carried forward to QLED as well. Manufacturers have made best efforts to enhance viewing angles but still the difference is noticeable.
OLED screens were popular due to their incredible viewing angles, these can be viewed with no luminescence degradation at drastic viewing angles — up to 84 degrees.

Screen burn-in:
Long story short screen burn in refers to a problem when certain portion of screen appears dim than rest of the display. OLED TV’s are susceptible of screen burn in issue and there have been numerous reports for the same but you have to be really unlucky and abuse the TV to get screen burn in problem. On the other hand QLED TV’s are not susceptible of this issue.

Power consumption:
OLED panels are extremely thin and require no back-light thus they are much power efficient than its rivals.

For now OLED TV's have more advantages and are leading the television industry by storm, but Samsung see lot of potential in QLED and are ready to launch TV's with micro LED technology. Well this technology is new and need some time to mature, and who knows one day QLED surpass OLED technology that use of OLED will fade away.

Android Pie: Cool features you shouldn't overlook

In this era of technical growth companies have been trying to improve user experience by making device usability better and handy. As mobile phone are being introduced with various new technologies for eg. face recognition which uses AI to enhance the user experience, similarly many other inventions are being worked on at present and support those new features the OS needs to be upgraded to match their pace with the development of technology.

What is Deep Learning - Explained in General Terms

Deep Learning, Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence are the terms which are being used interchangeably these days. Suddenly every one is talking about them – irrespective of whether they understand the differences or not! Whether one have been actively following data science or not – everyone would have heard these terms. But no one has a clear understanding of what is Deep Learning. Basically it is subset of Machine Learning which in turn is subset of Artificial Intelligence.

Deep Learning is type of Machine Learning which teaches computers to perform actions by learning from examples. Deep Learning is the key technology being used in Driver-less cars that enables them to recognize a stop sign and differentiate between a person and lamppost.It is the key behind the voice controls in various devices like phone, tablets, TVs and hands-free speakers. Deep Learning is gradually prevailing and getting attention lately. Using it, impossible results have been achieved.

Chromecast: All you need to know

Digital media player, Chromecast is a small dongle developed by Google for accessing playbacks from mobile device or computers on high definition TVs. The device controls/initiate the playback of internet streamed audio and visual content on TVs through mobile or web Apps. The device supports Google cast for mirroring of content on HD TV's.

Google Cast SDK is a third party modification software which was released on 3rd Feb, 2014. Third party Apps can use google cast for enabling their apps to be accessible through Chromecast on high definition Tvs. After the release, 20,000 google cast ready apps were sold till May 2015. 30 million units of Chromecast are sold till now in US making it the best seller streaming device in US in 2014.
