Screen

The Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus is built around a 3.5625 x 6.0625 inch screen, with a resolution of 1024 x 600 pixels. Sure, it's no retina display, but it gets the job done, even for its tiny size. Despite the fact that most tablets use an IPS display, the Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus uses a WSVGA plane-to-line switching (PLS) display, which allegedly affords it 10% better screen brightness, and a wide viewing angle.

Indoor & Outdoor Use

Because the screen of the Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus is so ridiculously reflective, and the fact that the backlight is so weak, the Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus is a very poor option as far as tablets go to take out into the world when the screen is subjected to anything close to direct sunlight. Because backlit LCD displays rely on a strong backlight to make their image seen rather than using ambient light (like eReaders), strong external light sources will make the screen of the Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus look washed out.
