Surface 7 Display


New Member

my Surface 7 arrives and I am disappointed with the display. The display is quite dark - although the screen brightness in windows is on 100%.

In comparison to my old surface 4 the display is considerably darker.

I adjust the screen brightness on the old surface 4 to 70% und on the new surface 7 to 100% - then the similar brightness is on both. Can that really be?

How is your experience with the surface 7 display ? Is it (considerably) darker than the older surfaces?

Thank you very much
Best regards

Mine is as bright or even slightly brighter with better color depth.
Here's both side-by-side each at 100% brightness.
