so 5 is 4 gig and 7 is 8gig? i understand that but the guy above said he has two 8gigs and he says they are both different. so what is the real difference? im confused. also is one BETTER than the other? does the number of the lcd screen affect battery life? any help would be greatly appreciated
when you go to the field test and check your LCD number it will start with either a 5 or 7. It is generally thought that the 5 is better, as the 7 series has a subtle pattern of white dots when tilted at an angle. In addition, the 7 series doesn't appear to display dark movies as well as the 5. However, many people have 7 series they report as "perfect", and some claim the 7 series is even better. I tend to disagree from what I have seen.
But lets not stat jumping to conclusions. This IS just the LCD ID, nothing more. Sure one could argue that similar IDs were built in the same time frame, but that argument only goes so far. We need more solid proof than that to connect more problems than just dead pixels etc. to the LCD ID.
