Nexus 7 Display Hammered by Image Quality Experts as "Washed Out" and "Messed Up"

As well as a bit of physical wobbliness, the display that comes with Google's hot new Nexus 7 tablet is now being criticised by image analysis experts, who claim it's been poorly configured and delivers users "noticeably washed out" and "over exposed" images.

The claims come from DisplayMate, which says Asus has messed up in calibrating the grey scale within the Nexus 7, going so far as to claim that the issue is most likely caused due to "incompetence by the manufacturer" in adapting the brightness level and image compression when viewing bright pictures.

Dr. Raymond Soneira, the president of DisplayMate, seems to be really rather upset about the issue, saying it's a shame that "they messed up a really nice display" in the Nexus 7. [DisplayMate via ZDNet]
