Viewing angles are excellent and are on par with IPS displays: even off angle colors are strong as is contrast.

The 1,280x800-pixel resolution packed into a 7-inch display gives visuals like text and graphics a sharper look than what I'm typically used to seeing on most 7-inchers.

Reviews Word on the street

Galaxy Note 8.0  vs Nexus 7 II 

Display quality is good, with a sharp image and commendable (if not searing) top brightness.
Nexus 7 II

Featuring a 7-inch 1920 x 1200 IPS LCD display, it simply delivers the goods in the details department, as its 323 ppi pixel density is undoubtedly breathtaking for its screen size.

In fact, the processor in the Nexus is FAR better than the one on Note 8 -> it uses 4x cores of Krait A15 instead of the older A9 present in the Note.
