Samsung on Thursday announced its Galaxy Tab S tablets in the New York. This time the Korean manufacturer has come up with a slim and light contour that could give a run to Apple’s iPad range. The new tablets come in two screen sizes; 10.5-inch and 8.4-inch getting closer to the public needs. Let’s compare both of the manufacturers in order to get the exact idea of which can give you the best tablet experience.

Screen Size

There’s not much difference in the screen sizes as Apple offers 7.9-inch and 9.7-inch with 2048 x 1536p resolution while Samsung goes for the slightly larger displays such as 8.4-inch and 10.5-inch with 2560 x 1600 pixel resolution.


Clearly, Samsung takes the floor when it comes to portability. Its 8.4-inch and 10.5-inch tabs are just 0.25-inch thin as compared to the Apple iPad that is 0.37-inch thin. The Wi-Fi versions of Samsung’s tablets weigh only 0.64 pounds while the Apple’s iPad is 0.73 pounds. The LTE models of Samsung are just 0.66 pounds heavy while the Apple’s iPads are 0.75 pounds heavy.


 Apple employs its A7 chip together with M7 Motion coprocessor and 64-bit architecture. While the Samsung uses its Exynos 5 Octa (1.3GHz Quad-core + 1.9GHz Quad-core) or a Quad-core 2.3GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor. Samsung Galaxy Tab S operates Google’s latest Android OS v4.4 (KitKat) while Apple iPad runs its own iOS.


Both of the devices from the Samsung sport an 8 megapixel rear and 2.1 megapixel front-facing cameras. Apple also lacks here and stands with 5MP rear and 1.2MP front sensors.
