DisplayMate Pits the iPad mini Display Versus Its Rivals [Comparison]

by on November 5th, 2012

DisplayMate has released their findings of how the iPad mini competes against the Amazon Fire Kindle HD and Google Nexus 7. Here is their conclusion:

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.

Part of their test criteria looked at Screen Reflections, Brightness and Contrast,  Colors and Intensities,  Viewing Angles,  Display Backlight Power Consumption,  Running Time on Battery. Of course, the iPad mini has the same screen resolution as the iPad 2 at 1024 x 768 (132 ppi), but a slightly higher 163 ppi:
