60% of smartphone users have their screens broken and this does not have any boundaries as across the world, this has become a common factor.

Even though, smartphone buyers know very much that they display will break or crack on mishandling, one of the most important factors that affect a smartphone seeker’s decision is the display, which is also the only portal to interact with all the components inside those beautiful metal bodies.

This is why smartphones are getting bigger displays with slimmer bezels, which in turn makes the user experience special.

All these days, Samsung, Apple, LG among others use OLED or AMOLED display which is great for achieving higher picture contrasts as well as reducing power consumption. Also, there’s no issue like containing the liquid as in an LCD display, which means that any kind of display form can be achieved. However, general AMOLED panels have a glass substrate, i.e. solid glass base holding the OLED bulbs and everything else.

The problem of breaking the display screen continued as it was in LCD, as AMOLED also had glass.

P-OLED is equal with AMOLED in terms with quality of display but its substrate made of plastic instead of glass. ‘P’ in P-OLED stands for plastic, thereby referring to the plastic base of these OLED panels. These displays have the same arrangement as the AMOLED panels but laid on a plastic substrate.

Since plastic is flexible in nature, it can be bent to the heart’s content. P-OLED displays are also slightly more resistant to screen shatters than standard AMOLED panels as the plastic can absorb some of the shocks. However, display can still shatter because they have protective glass on top of them to give you a premium touch experience.
