Tablet screen resolution vs size of stuff on the screen?


May 23, 2002

I have an old Asus TF101 that has a 1280 x 800 screen. I also have a brand new Insignia Flex 10.1 tablet that also has a 1280 x 800 screen. However, everything on the Flex is gigantic compared to the Asus.

If I use an app to show me the specs of the hardware they both in fact say 1280 x 800. However, if I go to a website like this (http://www.rapidtables.com/web/tools/screen-resolution.htm) that tells me my screen resolution, the Asus shows 1280 x 764 but the Flex shows 962 x 601.

I was expecting a tablet with a 1280 x 800 advertised resolution to actually be that. Anyone know if there's something wrong with this or if there's a setting I have to change or if I need to return this and get something better?

If it matters, the Asus is running Android 4.4.2 and the Flex has 6.0.1
