Clearly you AMOLED supporters haven't realized they have more issues than LCD, I'm a Samsung fan and have used Samsung Wave to S2 but uneven blacks, patches, streaks across the screen and burn ins are just a few of the quality issues that affect OLEDs

I think i have read about all the reviews and this light bleed thing was only mentioned in one.It seems if it was really a problem others would have picked up on it.I will wait until i get my hands on it before getting too worried about what might not be an issue at all.The same goes for the brightness thing.I never use my n7 at full brightness so if the n10 is not as bright as another tab it really would not matter.I am sure it will be plenty bright as my n7 at 25%.

I wouldn't put too much stock in this review, but it's always a good idea to be skeptical.

Same for the Verge Review/Video i thought The verge was the good guys (after leaving Engadget) but the amount of biased info on their review on the iFail mini Vs Nexus 7 Vs Nexus 10 is unbelievable...he even dared to say that the iPAD can replace a PC and a Nexus 10 can't...we both know that none of them can not any time soon anyway but saying that the iPAD can is just....pure BS

Overall, though, compared to what's out there and price performance, it still looks like a solid offering. I agree, though, that if the bleed is bad it's out of consideration for the people I know. I doubt it will be, though, and it's something a rev 2 could always address.

BTW, since no one else has mentioned it, the measured contrast ratios are posted in the Nexus 10 CNET review.

Tested spec Google Nexus 10
Maximum brightness IPS mode (Super IPS) 368 cd/m2
Maximum black level, IPS mode (Super IPS) .44 cd/m2
Maximum contrast ratio, IPS mode (Super IPS) 836:1

Tested spec Apple iPad (third generation)
Maximum brightness IPS mode (Super IPS) 455 cd/m2
Maximum black level, IPS mode (Super IPS) 0.49 cd/m2
Maximum contrast ratio, IPS mode (Super IPS) 939:1

This is just a scaremongering thread with no evidence to back it up other than a totally biased review from Engadget and no-one else.

The Nexas 10 screen has a higher resolution than the iPad 4 and with a 16:9 format is better for viewing more than one application at the same time or two book pages, or media such as films or games. Also the front facing speakers are much better for listing to stereo.

The iPad 4 is like a left behind dinosaur with it's 4:3 screen format that no-one else uses. Even the iPhone 5 is now 16:9 but cannot use old 4:3 apps without letter boxing.

So the wheels are falling off the Apple bandwagon.

Don't worry. This is Samsung and not Asus or HTC. There will be no slow nand memory causing lags(Asus Vivo tab), there will be no crap wifi(all Asus tablets beside especially the Prime), there will be no raised screens(Asus infinity and Nexus 7 and washed out colours(Nexus 7), there will be now crap battery life and manufacturing defects(HTC products).

This is going be the mother F-ing Nexus 10! Like the Samsung mother effing Galaxy S3! The mother effing is good in a non literal way.

It is Samsung. As long as you are not a whiner about it being light and plastic(which isn't really a negative at all for the more intelligent crowd that doesn't need weight to assure them that a product is quality), you know exactly what to expect from Samsung.

Also, if the Apple biased Verge(who gave the ipad 4 the exact same score as the ipad 3 despite the fact that it should have lost a ton of points for being exactly the same as product as it's predecessor which was only released recently) and Slashgear couldn't pick a winner between the two screens, then you know the screen must be amazing.

Engadget is getting pretty anti Samsung btw. First they said that no matter how hard the GS3 tries it doesn't match the One X. ROFL. Then they say the Transformer infinity is worth $100 more than the Nexus 10. SIGH. Just go look at the infinity forums about the manufacturing defects, almost as bad as the Nexus 7 forums. Lucky I didn't buy an infinity like I was considering. Whew! Dodged a bullet there.

Engadget is horrible now.
