The colors are vivid enough, it has very wide viewing angles, and the screen is bright enough for decent visibility outside, unless the sun is blasting directly on it, of course.

Reviews Word on the street for the Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.7


8.0
What's hot: Super-slim, great display, fast, 4G LTE, good battery life.

6.5
The screen delivers sharp text and menus, but the brightness is surprisingly low and doesn't hold up well under sunlight.

7.0
Ready to tackle the tablet landscape by surprise with its gleaming Super AMOLED Plus display, which is still a rarity amongst tablets in general, this small bundle of joy surely packs a punch with its set of arsenal to make it a valiant offering.

7.4
It's not as fast as the iPad, but still quite good (and still better than my home Wi-Fi at points).

7.2 Out of 10

What People Are Saying Give it to me straight

Screen

Text is sharp thanks to the very high resolution display, though if you look closely you'll see the jagged edges of characters with diagonal strokes (i.e.: x and y).
by MobileTechReview (Mar, 2012)
It has a great display, is very fast and is easy on the eyes.
by MobileTechReview (Mar, 2012)
AMOLED screens are able to reach much deeper black levels and a higher perceived brightness than the conventional LED technology in use by most tablet screens.
by c|net (Nov, 2011)

Operating System

It's the closest thing to true multi-window multitasking I've ever seen on Android, and it's excellent.
by The Verge (Mar, 2012)
The pixel density is higher than average at 196 ppi, so images and text look sharper than they do on the iPad 2 and 10" Android tablets.
by MobileTechReview (Mar, 2012)
It has higher than average 1280 x 800 resolution- that's the same resolution used in 10.1" Android tablets and it fits better in 7.7" than 7" for readability.
by MobileTechReview (Mar, 2012)

Camera

The 3.2-megapixel camera on the back isn't particularly high-res, but does all right, and the 2-megapixel front-facing shooter is actually better than its equivalent on most tablets.
by The Verge (Mar, 2012)
You can tap-to-focus, which I can’t do without, and I love how easy it is to tweak timers and settings, or just flip from shooting stills to recording video.
by The Verge (Mar, 2012)
The left side of the bezel houses a 2-megapixel camera, with an LED flash-supported 3-megapixel camera in the top-left corner on the back.

Operating system

Samsung built a solid, high-end tablet with great internals and a great display, but equipped it with an operating system that's just not up to the task.
by The Verge (Mar, 2012)
Thin, light, and well-madeSuper AMOLED Plus is awesome, but it's no Retina display TouchWiz can't fix Honeycomb's problems A great app for a mediocre camera Powerful hardware is held back by underperforming software Samsung picked everything right except the operating system Samsung sells a lot of different tablets, and the number's growing rapidly.
by The Verge (Mar, 2012)

Type

Super AMOLED Plus displays can be found in some of Samsung’s best phones, like the Galaxy S II, and when we've reviewed those phones we’ve normally only disliked them for being low-resolution (typically 800 x 480).
by The Verge (Mar, 2012)
Most folks love Samsung's Super AMOLED displays, and this tablet's screen is a strong selling point.
by MobileTechReview (Mar, 2012)
It has a stunning Super AMOLED Plus display; in fact it's the first tablet with that display technology.
