    Interesting close up image at the pixel level of the 3 displays in landscape mode.

    The iPad and HDTV have 3 sub pixels for every 2 on the Galaxy Note.

    The relative spacing between the pixel rows seems best on the HDTV.

    Also the HDTV uses a RGB pattern, whereas the iPad uses a BGR sub pixel.

    Galaxy note seems to have excessive green subpixels, and uneven sized ones at that.

    Strange , looks like 50% of the Note's sub pixels are green!

    That's why the cheap pentile (RGBG) AMOLED screens are much maligned. Gives it green fringing on the edges of objects and weird colours.

    In normal use, I've not noticed any issues with the Note's display,
    but it's clear from the closeup photo it's not the best technology.

    The iPad looks fine but if they could come closer to a gapless layout it would only improve.
