Soft Vs. Hard OLED

Soft OLED (or Flexible OLED)

Soft OLED screens are built around a flexible substrate, like the iPhone X’s original screen. Because the manufacturing process doesn’t substitute this key component, the soft OLED is a step ahead of the hard OLED in mimicking original screen performance. Its display size matches the dimensions of the OEM screen, and the flexible substrate gives the soft OLED a leg up in hardiness, allowing it to absorb more impacts without malfunctioning or breaking.

Soft OLED’s key features:

  • Color Contrast: Excellent color contrast
  • Color Accuracy: Excellent color accuracy
  • Brightness: Good brightness
  • Display Size: Equivalent to OEM
  • Power Consumption: Equivalent to OEM
  • Durability: Equivalent to OEM, higher than Hard OLED

Hard OLED (or Rigid OLED)

Hard OLED screens are built using a hard glass substrate instead of the flexible substrate found on the iPhone X’s original screen. Two benefits of the switch from soft to hard are cheaper production cost and higher screen brightness. These come at the expense of display size and durability. The hard glass substrate can’t flex to accommodate the original curve of the display, so the screen has an enlarged bezel that fractionally, but noticeably, reduces the size of the 5.8” display.

The hard glass substrate is also more prone to damage than the soft OLED, and may crack more easily if dropped. It’s also worth adding that, while enhanced screen brightness sound like an added to bonus, it may be harsher to look at.

Hard OLED’s key features:

  • Color Contrast: Excellent
  • Color Accuracy: Good
  • Brightness: Excellent
  • Display Size: Reduced from OEM (results in an increased bezel size)
  • Power Consumption: Equivalent to OEM
  • Durability: Lower than OEM and Soft OLED
