Mini iPad screen is much better than the screen of iPad 2

Mini iPad screen is much better than the screen of iPad 2

When Apple introduced the iPad Mini , Tim Cook said that the screen had the same resolution as the iPad 2 . Many assume that both would be the same but we only need one eye under the microscope is sufficient for us to see that while it can not be considered retina if it is better than the iPad 2.

The guys RepairLabs brought us a comparison of all iPad screens. Instead of teaching us compare a photo of a close up of both screens have decided to go as close as you can to see the differences in the structure.

This will see the difference in size of the pixels in the different screens. Let’s see how they compare first screen of an iPad 2 and an iPad 4. The difference is like night and day. The pixels of the iPad 4 are half that of the iPad 2. As we can see for each RGB group of 6 pixels fit (2 groups) of iPad 4.

So far so normal. This is the difference between an iPad with Retina display and one that does not. Now look at the difference between the iPad and the iPad Mini 4. It should be the same as the previous example but as we see in the following image pixels of iPad Mini, left, presents no marked difference in size as it was between the iPad 2 and the iPad 4. The Retina display pixels are only 2/3 the size of the iPad Mini. With the iPad 2′s pixel Retina were half so if there’s any noticeable difference. Furthermore, at a normal distance differences are reduced.

Finally see face to face the screen of iPad 2 and iPad Mini to see the difference in size of the pixels. If we compare the pixels per inch we go 132 and 163 iPad 2 iPad Mini. The resolution is the same but the size reduction makes the pixels are closer together.

Who knows if Apple really could not yet offer Retina technology in a screen like this or if they do not implement it like it has, but from what I can see, with a screen resolution former there is no much difference with Retina displays.
