Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1, the new tablet from Samsung, is the bet for all Android lovers against Apple’s iPad 2. As both the leading computing and mobile companies gear up to battle out each other with their new gadgets, the war intensifies every day. Tablet, or, for a common person, the mobile form of a computer, is the hottest electronic gadget in today’s world. The widespread success of Apple’s iPad has kindled every other electronic company to produce their own range of tablets to keep up to the pace of the electronic gadgets’ market. Here is the interesting story that tells you whether Samsung Galaxy tab 10.1 has the things really to beat iPad 2 in the tablet market.
Processor and Performance
Processor and performance analysis is the primary thing to check out the efficiency and performance of any gadget. Considering iPad2, it comes with 1 GHz Dual Core Apple A5 processor. The device runs on iOS 4.3 operating system. The dual core factor in the processor of iPad 2 tells us clearly that the device guarantees awesome speed without sacrificing the performance. On the other hand, Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 has a processor that can match up the Apple’s product easily. The Samsung tablet has a 1 GHz Dual Core Cortex-A9 processor. It means that this device also features the Dual Core technology, which can promise the user stunning speed without compromising an efficient performance. Thus, both the tablets almost stand equal in the processor and performance arena although Galaxy Tab has a slight edge over its competitor.
Display and Design
In the section of display, Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 clearly wins over the Apple’s product with ease. This is because of the fact that Apple’s iPad 2 consists of a 9.7 LED-backlit display, whereas, Galaxy Tab features a 10.1 inch LED display, which is marginally greater than the iPad 2. In addition to this, the Galaxy Tab has a stunning resolution of 1280 x 800 pixels, which is again higher than the iPad 2, which has a slightly less resolution of just 1024 x 768 pixels. Thus, Samsung’s tablet clearly goes ahead of Apple’s in the consideration of display. However, iPad 2 wins over the Samsung Galaxy Tab in design with its stupendous stylish and sleek look.
Even though both the devices stand at the same place when we consider the features like GPRS, GPS, EDGE and Micro USB Support, Samsung’s product races ahead of the Apple’s, in the section of camera specifications. Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 features a rear camera of 3 MP with Auto Flash LED of 720 Pixels and a front camera of 2 Mega Pixel. The iPad 2 features a rear camera of Fixed Focus 720 Pixels specification, but just with 0.3 Mega Pixels. Even the front camera too has just 0.2 Mega Pixels, which is well short of Samsung Tab’s specification number.
Application is purely the thing in which Apple dominates over Samsung. The users of iPad 2 can find it easy to get more useful applications than the users of Galaxy Tab. Thus, it is clear that Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 edges over the Apple’s product in performance and efficiency, but fails to match up with it in design and availability of applications!
