The Note 8.0 has a 1280 x 800 display (likely PLS, it is not Super AMOLED like Samsung phones), and though some have bemoaned the low resolution, it's a decent resolution for an 8" panel.

As with the Note II smartphone, the tablet features Smart Stay, which uses the front camera to see if you're looking at the display and thus won't turn it off when you're reading.
