White-light emitting diodes (LEDs) based on K$_2$SiF$_6$:Mn$^{4+}$ (KSF) red and Lu$_3$Al$_5$O$_{12}$:Ce$^{3+}$ (LuAG) green phosphors were fabricated and compared to the conventional yellow Y$_3$Al$_5$O$_{12}$:Ce$^{3+}$ (YAG) phosphor-based white LED. The emitting spectrum of the KSF-based white LED was measured as a function of the driving current and the temperature. The changes in the color coordinates of the KSF-based white LED over wide current and temperature ranges were less than 0.01, which are substantially smaller than those of the YAG-based white LEDs. This demonstrates that the thermal stability of the KSF- and the LuAG-based white LEDs is high compared to that of the conventional white LEDs. The color gamut of the KSF-based white LED is more than 92\%, which is much higher than 74\% of the YAG-based white LED. This result is mainly due to the sharper emission peaks of the KSF and the LuAG phosphors.
