View angle is decided while display is being designed, and can be adjusted to any angle based on requirement. To design the best viewing angle, just imagine how the user will use it and from which direction they will see the display. For example an air-condition will use 6 o’clock view angle where as a medical device that is placed next to a patient’s bed will be best viewed at 12 O’clock.
