Notion Ink Adam - From Eden to UI Hell

Screen Time

Screen Time

Now, the 1024 x 600 resolution Pixel Qi display is a must have feature on any device if you're spending time outdoors. Under bright sunlight, you'll still be able to view items on your screen, but the reflective glossy screen of the Adam tablet actually prevents this somewhat. Luckily, the Adam tablet does come with a matte screen protector though, so if you get this applied, your problems should be solved somewhat.

You're able to turn off the backlight and view the screen even under bright sunlight. Note the reflections of the background.

Indoors with the backlight turned on at 50% brightness, we found ourselves staring at a very muted display. The viewing angles were also a little strange; you'll find no problems viewing the screen from the left, but viewed from the right side, you won't be able to see anything at all. To fully appreciate the screen, you'll have to set the brightness to full, which would then drain your battery faster than you can say "Notion Ink Adam".

The Pixel Qi screen is viewable fine from the right side...

From the right side however, the screen turns into a yellowish nightmare.
