the viewing angle is very narrow and fully black background is
actually displayed as a diffuse shade of tones of gray. colors are
also very pale. forget about watching movies on it, and reading in
"night mode" (inverted color) is close to impossible because of the
resulting lack of contrast with this shade claiming to be black
