The Difference between Matte and Glossy Screen Finish

There are two kinds of modern LCD screens: matte (anti-glare) and glossy.Glossy and matte screens are absolutely interchangeable and it's just the type of the screen surface.

 

The picture below illustrates the physical dissimilarities between the glossy and the matte screens installed on the same laptop:


Glossy screens have vibrant colors and the highest contrast and brightness because they have a smooth, high-gloss surface. As a result, it is often the choice for movies or gaming. However, strong lighting causes glare on this screen which is very annoying and may tire your eyes if you have to stare at it all the time. You can also see reflections on the screen. Some graphics designers may also find the colors inaccurate, although that mostly depends on the LCD matrix. Glossy will work great for you if the lighting in your room doesn't create any glare on the screen.

 

Matte screens don't get glare or reflections on them; however, the same rough surface (polarizer) that reduces the intensity of reflected light results in less contrast and brightness since the light from the LCD screen passes through it. Matte screens diffuse light instead of reflecting it so they might be easier to read outdoors, if the backlight provides enough brightness. You don't have to worry as much about reflections as with a glossy screen.
