To examine the performance of the Microsoft Surface 3 Display, DisplayMate ran their in-depth series of Mobile Display Technology Shoot-Out Lab tests and measurements in order to determine how it performs compared to other leading Tablets. Their conclusion is that Surface 3 has one of the very best and most accurate displays available on any mobile platform and OS.
The key element for a great Tablet has always been a truly innovative and top performing display, and the best leading edge Tablets have always flaunted their beautiful high tech displays.
The Microsoft Surface 3 Tablet is a smaller and lighter version of Microsoft’s flagship Surface Pro 3, with a 10.8 inch screen instead of 12.0 inches for the Pro. What is particularly interesting about the Surface 3 is that its display performance is almost identical to the excellent Surface Pro 3 display, including a full sRGB Color Gamut. But in addition, it has a bonus – the Surface 3 is the first display that has a Color Gamut optimized for typical 300 lux indoor ambient light levels instead of for the dark, like all other current displays. It provides the best absolute color accuracy on a display for real-world indoor ambient lighting levels of 300 lux, an important performance feature that no other display currently provides.
Based on our extensive lab tests and measurements, the Surface 3 has one of the very best and most accurate displays available on any mobile platform and OS. It joins near the top of a small set of Tablets that have excellent top tier displays. We’ll cover these issues and much more, with in-depth comprehensive display tests, measurements and analysis that you will find nowhere else.
