Black level and contrast are way better on OLEDs, because there’s no backlight. But, be careful when using pure black — changing pixels from black to any colour is slower than changing from a colour to a colour. This is often called OLED black smearing.
Here’s a dramatic recreation to make it obvious (and so you can see what it looks like without needing an OLED).
The solution: If you’re noticing issues, use a very dark grey instead of black, or slow down the animation.
@marcedwards please please PLEASE give people the choice to not use that, I will take a little bit of smear to have true black any day, dark grey looks so cheap on OLED by comparison
@seanreilly I don’t think so. I’d love to know more, but I think it might relate to voltage change delta for the pixel. Bigger change = takes more time. Sorry for the delayed reply!
