iPad Mini Display is 'Capable' But Outperformed By Amazon and Google Tablets
DisplayMate has posted its analysis of the new iPad mini's display.
Comparing the Apple iPad mini to the Amazon Kindle Fire HD and Google Nexus 7, DisplayMate found that the iPad mini fell short of its competitors due to a lower screen resolution, less screen sharpness, higher screen reflectance, smaller color gamut, and an aspect ratio that is not optimal for viewing hd content.
The iPad mini is certainly a very capable small Tablet, but it does not follow in Apple’s tradition of providing the best display, or at least a great display – it has just a very capable display. What’s more, the displays on existing mini Tablets from Amazon and Google outperform the iPad mini in most of our Lab tests as documented below in the Shoot-Out Comparison Table. Some of this results from constraints within the iPad product line, and some to realistic constraints on display technology and costs, but much of it is due to a number of poor choices and compromises.
