Here is another pic to show the resolution difference on the web

The little extra resolution is very nice !

Comparing to my Xoom the web browser is a lot more smooth and responsive but sometimes you see some "unrendered tiles" (I don't know how to explain) that are a little bit more fuzzy than the rest of the web page, and this happen most of the time on very big webpages (like engadget or 9gag) I never saw this on my Xoom
Both chrome and dolphinHD show this problem but firefox does fine !
By this picture it seems Infinity has a very yellowish tone to the screen's colors, which is really bad... Xoom colors seem to be much more accurate, white is white, while white seems yellow on Infinity... is this true?

Here is some pics side by side with my old Xoom :

The FullHD screen is awesome, only drawback the new Gorilla Glass 2 is VERY reflective (a lot more than the Xoom)

If you need more pics or infos just ask me !
you know you are now the most hated man on this thread

So the actual hardware seem to be as advertised (speed, battery, screen etc). However, Im a bit concerned about build quality.

Am I correct to sum up that the device has some flex and give, uneven joining along the screen and a general plastic feel though the back is crafted from metal?

It seems the Tegra 3 is running @ 1.9Ghz on the TF700 ... it explains the big score difference between the Prime and the Infinity despite the higher resolution

seriously doubt its really 1.9ghz. just because the benchmarks show that doesnt mean its the real time speeds. when prime first got ICS, everyone benchmarks showed 1.6ghz. but cpu spy proved this to be wrong. The higher speeds was in the kernel but wasnt enabled, out the box. only way to achieve that speed was through root.

same can be said with the infinity. Its real time top speed is likely 1.6 or 1.7ghz. but it has 1.9ghz in the kernel and only way of enabling it is through root. CPU SPY is the only true way of seeing. put your infinity pad in performance mode then run cpu spy. if it doesnt show 1.9ghz enabled and being used, then thats not its real speeds.

you might be able to root with sparky new tool. what firmware did it ship with? if youre successful in rooting, then install the ezoverclock app. see if it lets you enable 1.9ghz. worth a try if youre going to root your device.

make sure to post a screenshot of cpu spy. we will be able to tell what speed its really running at. its clocked higher than stock prime so of course its scores will be alot higher. but in comparison to a overclocked prime at 1.6, 1.7, or 1.8 Ghz, primes scores will likely be higher. we still pulling higher scores than HTC One x and others. this is with an overclocked prime of course. or enabling the higher speeds in stock ics kernel. even 1.6ghz puts prime around the top still and higher than most.

edit: for those people asking, i thought i mentioned it before. but the inifinity pad can use the prime dock also. it even runs off the same firmware version. i believe the infinity pad has its own dock but can be used with prime dock also.

Without seeing the gent's response, let me say I wouldn't be surprised if this were the case. I saw a number of Primes with a terrible, dingy yellow tint, and since I'm assuming this is the same manufacturer, I wouldn't be surprised to see it on the TF201 as well. In fact, it was just such a yellow tint that caused me to finally get a refund from ASUS, and if there's the slightest chance that the TF700 could have the same issue, it's off my list.

From what I understand, the yellow hue issue is a cross brand problem as explained here (remove spaces - stupid 10 post link rule):
http :// ww w.zdnet.com/blog/hardware/some-new-ipad-retina-displays-marred-by-yellowish-hue/19199

In short terms it's to with the adhesive between screen layers not evaporating properly due to increased production speed.

Seems that best solution is to return the device and hope for a new one without yellow tint.

On youtube there is no lag between the video and BT-Audio but when I watch a 1080p.mkv with Dice player or MXplayer yes there is a very short lag between audio and video

Yep, I orderd a TF200 dock to see if it works on the TF700 I will let you know as soon as I receive it.

Yeah sorry for the bad quality of the picture, now I'm at work I will try tonight to take better pictures.
The Xoom (like my Razr) has a very cold color temperature. But the transformer is a more warmer (but not yellowish), feels more natural to the eye. I will take a picture side by side with the Xoom and my calibrated Samsung monitor.

No problem, I'll do the CPUspy test tonight when I'm at home again, and maybe try to root it if I found a compatible tool on the other Transformer forum sections.
