Most stuff sold as a LED screen nowadays is just a LCD with a white LED backlight. More than 30% of the input energy still gets converted to heat in the most optimistic case of displaying a white image. I'd love to see OLEDs and reflective technologies everywhere, but we're not there yet.

Also, glare does not come from the LCD technology itself, but from manufacturers' choice to put a polished, shiny coating in front of the screen. I've heard that it makes sense for touchscreens and ensures truer color rendering, but I'm not convinced that the benefits outweight the costs.
