Nexus 7, Kindle Fire HD 'outperform' iPad Mini display | Apple - CNET News. If you are contemplating a move to the suddenly popular 7 to 8 inch form factor for a tablet, your choices come down to the 3 best available. One of the features you should consider is the quality of the display. I prefer the display on the Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.7; but, its aged Honeycomb interface means that I am using the Nexus 7 more. This expert explains that Apple compromised on the Mini's display; likely to keep the price down. And, even with an inferior display, the Mini costs $150 more than the competitors. It's your money. You decide.
