A TFT screen, formally called a "thin-film-transistor liquid-crystal display," is a type of LCD screen. TFT is used to improve the image of a regular LCD screen by attaching a transistor to each pixel, which provides more control over the color and images it can render.
TFT-LCD screens consume a significantly higher amount of energy than other display technologies and are normally found in LCD computer monitors or lower-end and older cellphones. TFT-LCD delivers sharp images, but like its LCD predecessor, it does not produce wide viewing angles, which means it is best viewed head-on and not from the sides.Learn More
