Which tablet has the best display for reading ebooks?

2016-05-01

The prices for branded tablets vary a lot: you can find a 7-inch tablet for 50 dollars whereas a 10-inch tablet may cost 1000 dollars. The highest cost of a component in a tablet is the display. It is also the most important component because it is the interface that connects people to the computer. Of course, processor speed, the amount of memory and other factors are important but the display is absolutely critical for the success of a tablet. So, which tablet comes with the best display? Apple iPad Pro 9.7.

DisplayMate, a company that is in the display business, has ran a series of tests on a number of tablet screens. The results of these tests point out that the iPad Pro 9.7 has – by a large margin – the best display at the moment. Interestingly the large iPad Pro 12.9 didn’t do as well in the tests as its smaller brother 9.7.

Here is the conclusion from the test lab:
“An Outstanding LCD Display – The display on the iPad Pro 9.7 is a Truly Impressive Top Performing Display and a major upgrade to the display on the iPad Air 2. It is by far the best performing mobile LCD display that we have ever tested, and it breaks many display performance records.”

When the iPad Pro 9.7 was introduced, many people thought that it was very much the same product as the iPad Air 2. The products look the same and the display resolution is the same on both tablets. That’s not the case: the iPad Pro has a whole new screen.

Here is the word from the test lab what makes the iPad Pro 9.7 screen so good:

– Two Standard Color Gamuts.
– The Absolute Color Accuracy of the iPad Pro 9.7 is impressive.
– Very Low Screen Reflectance (makes the screen easier to read, for instance, outdoors).
– The iPad Pro 9.7 breaks many new records in display performance and delivers uniformly consistent all around Top Tier display performance.

So far, the only problem with the iPad (non-Pro model) screen we have had, has been reading outdoors. Even if we can find a shady place, the screen reflection is disturbing and the colors are washed out. It is these features (among others) where the iPad Pro 9.7 shines according to the DisplayMate tests.

Ereaders have been superior when reading ebooks outdoors because an E ink screen lets you read even in direct sunlight. Now, it looks like the LCD display technology in tablets is improving. It is still difficult to recommend the iPad Pro as an ereading device because of its price. If you are going to use the iPad Pro as a computer and an ereader,then it is easy to justify.
