re: Google Nexus 10 Bests iPad's Retina Display
The Nexus 10 looks amazing! In my opinion it bests the the iPad 4 hands down. It's faster, it has a much higher resolution screen, and is smaller, and lighter. The only thing that the iPad really wins out on is battery life and some people's personal preference for iOS over Android. You can see a head to head comparison of the differences here: http://sortable.com/tablets/Go... - I love Apple but it makes me sad that they're falling behind on core products they should be innovating on.

Sigh. It's not "Retina-killing". It's just gold plating. The "Retina Display" already has a higher pixel density than most people can resolve. Therefore, most people would not even notice an even higher pixel density. But the higher pixel count could make the display dimmer and add overhead in processing and memory. Instead of just trying to out-spec the competition, it sure would be nice if Samsung actually brought some real innovation to the party.

re: Google Nexus 10 Bests iPad's Retina Display
bwalker970, are you kidding with that comment? Not better than retina because humans can't see it?
spoken like someone who believes there is no reason for loss-less compression in audio or video.
heck, mp3 audio is all anyone needs because most people can't here it anyway and VCRs have good enough video to get the idea of what the movie looks like so throw out all the Bluray let alone 4k and 8k equipment.
Some of us can still see and hear and want better quality, sir.
Besides pixel density and resolution discrimination is a function of viewing distance and lighting.
But you wouldn't care about facts, would you.
You are correct about the added loading on the hardware to display more, i'll give ya that one.
My question for Google samsung is this....
If the 7" 16gb and 7" 32gb are $50 difference and the memory size is only difference.....then why...if the 16gb 10" and 32gb 10" only difference is memory size why is the cost $100 different for the same memory in the 7"
That's just gouging the customer.7" +$50 for 32gb chip, 10" +$100 for same 32gb chip?

As for samsung innovation...
It is Samsung chips that got Apple to the party and samsung new chips that power many phones and tablets...including the new xynos dual core chip in this tablet.
Samsung has been an industry leader in screen development for more than 15 years.
Check inside your devices, I'll bet most other manufacturer branded tv, lcd monitors, phones have a samsung display.
I can't think of one apple display that the lcd is made by apple.
Almost every component used in an apple device is some other companies manufacture or product rebranded. (many chinese assembly..i.e. foxconn)
sorry i just realized apple has the enclosures and circuit boards for many of their devices fabricated to their specs...oops they don't build them either.

Well, it might be best to have some people who really know about the quality of displays and how they are used to make this evaluation (e.g. Displaymate...) Each display has many characteristics and possible tunings. Let's see what Displaymate says prior to making grand statements. LCD vs OLED is a great example. LCDs from Apple are tuned to sRGB standards on the production line for color correction and true to life imaging. There are comparisons related to OLED on DisplayMate's site which mention saturation and other performance characteristics.

Once again, Google just reselling Samsung, LG and Asus devices instead of bringing new innovations. And killed their Motorola products along the process. As for the new Nexus 4 phone, no LTE support? Google is going back to Stone Age!
