Microsoft's Surface 3 tablet's 10.8-inch, 1920x1200 display has received very high review marks this week from the well-known research firm DisplayMate, especially for when it is being used indoors.
DisplayMate stated this is due to a very specific feature:
"That is particularly interesting about the Surface 3 is that its display performance is almost identical to the excellent Surface Pro 3 display, including a full sRGB Color Gamut. But in addition, it has a bonus – the Surface 3 is the first display that has a Color Gamut optimized for typical 300 lux indoor ambient light levels instead of for the dark, like all other current displays. It provides the best absolute color accuracy on a display for real-world indoor ambient lighting levels of 300 lux, an important performance feature that no other display currently provides."
In fact, the firm thinks the Surface 3 has one of the best displays made for any mobile device, period:
"It joins near the top of a small set of Tablets that have excellent top tier displays – ideal for both professionals that need a very accurate high performance display for their work, and for consumers that want and appreciate a really nice and beautiful display."
