IPS LCD displays are the most common type of display on the mobile market currently, and most of the time the cheapest for everyone involved. Considering that this tablet retails for under $250 it should be no surprise to see a cheaper type of display on it, however that definitely doesn’t mean a bad experience. This panel is bold, bright and sharp, encompassing all the best qualities of IPS LCD displays, whereas still suffers from the traditional negatives of them as well. Black levels are decent still not great, and the viewing angles could certainly be better when it comes to dimming of the display, but there’s little to no color shifting and it’s overall a great visual experience. Colors are nice and accurate and the white balance is near perfect, laying only just slightly on the cool side.
Touch responsiveness is fantastic too, shortly responding to everything I tried on it including typing and multi-touch gaming. The aspect ratio here is 4:3 with a super high resolution of 1536 x 2048, meaning you’re looking at some seriously crisp and clear images. This is the same aspect ratio as an iPad or the last year’s Nexus 9, which means it’s better optimized for games and apps rather than movies, as you’ll have to deal with black bars above and below the video when playing any widescreen content.
