DisplayMate Technologies says Nokia's tablet has one of the best screens it's tested to date, while Microsoft's Surface 2 falls into the also-ran category.
"With virtually identical functionality and OS software…The display on the Nokia Lumia 2520 is impressive while the Microsoft Surface 2 is mediocre and a disappointment," DisplayMate Technologies' Raymond Soneira said in a research note published Tuesday.
Soneira added that Nokia's tablet has a 1920×1080 Full HD display with ClearType Sub-Pixel Rendering that delivers sharp text and graphics like the Surface 2. "But Nokia has in addition pushed their display into record territory by producing the brightest mobile display we have ever tested."
Microsoft now owns Nokia so both products are part of the software giant's portfolio.
