PIPO Smart -S1 Stretched Display
Posted 22 November 2012 - 03:21 PM
I got my PIPO yesterday and flashed with Romans release. The problem I have is that the display looks "stretched" so an oval becomes slightly an ellipse instead. I downloaded an app, Display Metrics Info, which shows me the following Landscape: 800x432 and Portrait 480x752. That doesn't seem right does it? Is there a hardware problem. Do you guys also get stretched ovals so it looks like an ellipse?

Things are going to be slightly "stretched" I think due to the very wide but low 800x480 resolution. I wouldn't assume it is faulty . Android 4.1 unfortunately isn't quite built for this low resolution of a screen I don't think and I had to find a suitable aftermarket launcher just to make things work correctly to begin with. I think the slight stretching you are seeing is unfortunately normal.

Its unfortunate, this is a great little tablet, just the display lets it down, if you wanna check out my youtube channel i have videos on the Pipo S1 and others thanks! "JackHasAnLG"

The left photo is perspective corrected in Photoshop so you can see how much the image is stretched compared to the screenshot on the right.
I'd love a fix personally. It's the reason I'm getting a U1 Pro instead of the S1.
I found a little more info on the matter here:

Thanks for the tips. The thing is that the whole interface has a stretched screen which is annoying but I very seldom use my S1 anymore except for checking the tv listing so I just live with it right now :-)
