Lenovo IdeaPad K1: Low-Quality LCD

Joanna Stern, This is my next…:

The 1280 x 800-resolution, 10.1-inch display may match that of other Honeycomb tablets on paper, but it’s definitely not as bright or crisp as the screens on the Galaxy Tab 10.1 or the iPad 2. Colors are washed out in comparison and the panel, like much of the chassis, is low quality. To Lenovo’s credit, the viewing angles are fairly wide and sharing the screen with others was no issue. The touchscreen itself is responsive (at least when the software is), as is the optical-based power button that lives on the right bezel (when held horizontally). […]

A low-quality not-so-bright LCD with washed-out colors. At least the viewing angles and touch responsiveness are decent.

What makes the iPad so good? A great display and a great multitouch experience. To get that though requires crafting an exquisite chemistry between hardware and software.
