Design and display

The fact that the Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.7 has a thinner profile and a more favorable screen-to-bezel ratio than just about any other slate out there would probably be enough for us to pronounce it a real looker. But the fine news don’t really discontinue there with this one – there’s also the metallic back, the nicely curved lines and the lack of buttons on the front, which contributes to the overall high-tech feel.

So, as a whole we can conclude that the Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.7 is easily among the best looking pieces of technology we have seen this year. And that’s certainly a fine thing when you are talking a device, belonging to a class where coolness is rated way higher than practicality.

And yet, despite all the superlatives it deserves, the design won’t be the Galaxy Tab 7.7 key selling point. For that is a role most certainly reserved for its 7.7” Super AMOrganic Light-Emitting Diode (OLED) Plus classy screen of WXGA resolution (that’s 1280 x 800 pixels).

If you did the math already, you’d know that the Galaxy Tab 7.7 display has a pixel density of 196 ppi – the highest of any tablet out there. Just for comparison, the 7” Galaxy Tab had a 169 ppi screen, the Xoom Liquid Crystal Display (LCD) had a density of 149 ppi, while the iPad display has just under 132 ppi. Now smaller tablets need higher density as they would normally be looked at from closer range, but despite that, the 7.7” is still sharper than any of its competitors.

And then, there’s the spectacular image quality reserved for Super AMOrganic Light-Emitting Diode (OLED) Plus displays. With the AMOrganic Light-Emitting Diode (OLED) technology blacks are as deep as they acquire as individual pixels can simply be switched off, unlike Liquid Crystal Display (LCD) where the whole panel is backlit at all times.

And the viewing angles of the Galaxy Tab 7.7 display are just as impressive with icons looking as if they are printed on top of the glass rather than be smeared and blown out when looking them from the side. Sure, there is some color shifting at extreme angles (we are talking close to 180 degrees here), but that’s the worst that could be assumed about it. No other slate classy screen can even come close to that.

Finally, since Super AMOrganic Light-Emitting Diode (OLED) Plus screens are almost perfectly non-reflective, you don’t need to worry about losing the image quality under colorful lighting. Legibility problems in the sun are also out of the question – another first for tablets.

Until now we were used to slate screens having much worse quality than that of high-discontinue smartphones. The iPads were no match for the iPhone retina, the Xoom couldn’t hrecent a candle to the Milestone Liquid Crystal Display (LCD) and even Samsung’s own Galaxy Tabs isn’t in same league as the Galaxy S smartphones. With the Galaxy Tab 7.7 however, we are seeing the trdiscontinue change.
