Its 50" THAT'S ONLY 44 DPI OMG I BETTER TRASH IT!!! Forget viewing distances I can't believe I enjoy this crap. I need at least an 8K tv to get a good dpi now I just need to wait about 6 years before I can own a tv again. And a 100" tv? Give me 16k and we can talk.
THIS ^^^

No one EVER comes over to my house, looks at my stunning 60" TV screen displaying a lower resolution (1920x1080p) than my 12.2 inch and 10.1 inch notes and says "OMG what a horrible picture". People comment all the time on how stunning the display is. This is 60" from a normal sitting distance. Yes, put your face up in front of it and you can see freaking pixels, but that is not how the TV was meant to be viewed. The same goes for these tablets. Yup, if you put your nose against the glass you can see pixels, but not at normal usage range. That's all that counts. I don't give a rats ass how the display looks in a way it was not meant to be used.

I tried an iPad Air. I propped the tablet up, put it on the counter, went into the next room and I couldn't make out a thing on the browser window. This is the same backwards logic you use when talking about getting right up in front of it at an unrealistic closeness.

Check Anandtech review to see how the Pentile display is better than the RGB display of Tab 8.4 in almost all criteria other than sharpness. It's more important.
