For people who like their tablets to be smaller than the regular 10 inch tablets, then there are three really amazing tablets in the market right now under this category – Amazon Kindle Fire HDX, Nexus 7 2013 and the Apple iPad Mini 2 with Retina display.
Recently, we put these tablets up against each other and surprisingly the iPad Mini 2 came out at the bottom. Neither does the iPad Mini 2 offer image retention and neither has been there any change in color gamut compared to the previous iteration.
iPad Mini 2 has a indium-gallium-zinc oxide display, while the Nexus 7 2013 has a poly silicon display and the Kindle Fire HDX has a Quantum dots display.
After performing certain tests to find out the display quality it was found that even with the largest ppi and resolution, the iPad Mini 2 has 63% color gamut of the original iPad Mini.
The Nexus 7 2013 sports a really impressive display which utilized the highest performance LCDs with Low Temperature Poly Silicon LTPS. Due to this technology it provides a full 100% color gamut and also has the brightest display found in any tablet till now.
However, out of all the three, Kindle Fire HDX 7 has been the best in terms of display. It is the first tablet to utilize the super high technology Quantum Dots, which produce highly saturated primary colors which are similar to those produced by OLED displays.
With increasing the color gamut to 100%, this technology increases the power efficiency as well. Quantum dots technology is the next big thing and will revolutionize the displays for the next 5+ years.
