Screen

Despite the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 being of a rather light weight, it has a huge screen that's 8.5 by 5.3125 inches. With a resolution of 1280 by 800, the Galaxy Tab 10.1 has a DPI (dots per inch) of 151, which places it firmly in the high-average range among the upper-tier tablets. If you're looking for a crisp picture in a tablet, this is not a bad option.

Indoor & Outdoor Use

Despite the fact that the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 has a relatively bright screen among tablets, it isn't exactly enough to be seen well outdoors on any day that isn't severely overcast. In addition, its high reflectivity makes the Galaxy Tab 10.1 even more difficult to operate in brightly-lit conditions. As you can see in the comparison below, it doesn't really take much direct sunlight to completely wash out the screen of the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1, so it's best to keep this tablet in darker conditions.
