- very high brightness: Part of the reason that the brightness is at the level it's at is that they're extending the persistence time. This hurts motion dramatically. It is not yet bright enough to pull off the very tight pulse-style motion mitigation that you can find with, say, Sony MotionFlow Impulse.
- very large colour gamut: Unclear. This isn't specific to OLED
- infinite contrast ratio: Yep
- energy efficient: Yep
- can do 4K and 8K: High PPI (as with phones), but "8K"? The first prototypes of 8K (and that's all they were) were LCD.
- can do both passive & active 3D: Yep. Though LCD can, and the concept that only IPS could pull it off is long gone.
- works from almost any viewing angle: Yep.
- long-life: Keep in mind that we actually need to have these displays in the hands of consumers for long periods in order to know that for sure. But it does seem that the lifetime is good.
- curvable (...): Religious war bait. (lol)
- ultra-thin: The thinness wars are over (thank goodness). LCDs are thin enough.
And just to round out this very good post, on the negative side we potentially have:
-yellow-push / white-balance non-uniformity (and potential panel lottery)
-image-retention (potentially more finicky 'care-and-feeding' requirements than LED/LCD)
-color inaccuracy / difficulty to calibrate accurately
-near-dark greyscale non-uniformity and/or black-crush
-stuck-off sub-pixels and sub-pixel degradation over time
-large inter-row gap (SDE)
-Automatic Brightness Limiter
Compared to LED/LCD, the only of these that might be 'worse' would be IR/care-and-feeding, the larger inter-row gap, and the dying sub-pixels if continued degradation proves to be possible/likely even on the Gen-2 WOLEDs - everything else might be a clear negative compared to class-leading plasmas like the Samsung F8500, but would probably be well-within the norms for even class-leading LED/LCDs...
