Default Pixelated

Hello

I have a Macbook Pro 17 with resolution 1920x1200. It's beautiful with no pixelation at all.

However, with my Note 12.2 with resolution 2560 x 1600, I can see pixalation.

What gives?

Bcos the screen also has a white subpixel (pentile [RB][GW] subpixel) which makes things a little blurrier, but also "supposedly" makes it brighter and easier to read in sun light.

It supposedly uses less power... but in reality it's just cheaper to make bcos it's just letting light through instead of changing with a transistor.

Mine has quite a lot of back light bleed too ... but apart from weighing a bit too much it's SOOO much better than anything else for reading mags
Thanks for the hack

Thanks for the link. I see the advantages of pentile is outdoor brightness.

Unfortunately, I use my Note indoor 99% of the time. I see those pixels glaring at me.

Frankly, the display is ****ty.

I agree the display isn't great... it's fine for movies, but it makes text blurry.
Samsung bought the Pentile patent so their going to use it in their displays... maybe they figured the P900 would be too heavy with a battery to support their BS sw + an IPS stripe RGB, or too expensive... so they went with a display that only displays 66% of an image.

It is what it is (blurry)... and there's no way to get around it.
Thanks for the hack
