Has Samsung Galaxy Tab beaten iPad? This is the biggest question that none seem to be able to answer. Well, today we will give you the answer, and that answer is YES, let me explain.
Samsung Galaxy Tab has beaten iPad but not on all aspects. First of all, the $349.99 price for the Samsung tablet is no doubt a big factor for customer attraction, iPad sells for $499, which by the way is their cheapest version, you get 16GB of storage. The Galaxy tab includes something the iPad doesn’t have, a MicroSD card slot. This is very useful if you want to expand your tablet’s memory, and you can easily remove it to transfer files to another device with the same slot type.
Screen size. Galaxy offers 1024×600 resolution in a 7 inch screen, iPad? Just a tiny bit higher in a 9.7 inch screen. If you try to capture the difference in these two, you really couldn’t tell, the Galaxy Tab renders images just as clear as the iPad despite the lower resolution. From ebooks, to email, to playing games, and watching videos on the internet, many people would want to go with the 7 inch one.
Size matters. Physically, the Galaxy Tab is thicker but is lighter than iPad. The problem with iPad is that it’s too big and heavy for long-time use, imagine yourself reading an ebook, you’re loving the story and want to get to the ending however your arms are getting weary from holding it for a long time. With the Galaxy Tab, it is 12.2 ounces lighter, and it’s small enough for you to hold it with just one hand, now that’s convenient. Aside from that, smaller tablet is much easier to position when using it as a camera.
The downside of a smaller tablet is that it feels a bit cramped when working with word processing apps, and the document looks crowded. However, you have to give credit to Samsung for including the full version of ThinkFree Office. ThinkFree Office is great because it’s compatible with frequently used word processors like Microsoft Office. On the other hand, you need to purchase apps like these with Apple.
The Samsung Galaxy Tab Wi-Fi only version lacks the 3G or 4G accessibility, in other words, you can only go online if you’re on a hotspot area. This tablet, therefore, is highly recommended for people who often go to Wi-Fi zones like coffee shops, the office your work in, or at home.
To conclude, iPad may be the standard-bearer in which many competitors try hard to take down, but the Samsung Galaxy Tab Wi-Fi kicks butt in more than half of what the iPad can do. So now which one would you choose, comment below and let us know.
