Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.7 review: 7-plus inches of AMOLED goodness

Don't overlook this screen. While it doesn't offer the same pixel density as the new iPad's Retina Display, it's still one of the most impressive I've encountered, offering deep blacks and an unmatched contrast ratio by tablet standards.

While games looked vibrant and well-saturated with color, there was an unfortunate side effect on background textures.

The full review of the Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.7 has more on that admittedly cryptic statement as well as many other amusing anecdotes.
