Samsung Galaxy tab vs Apple ipad

Buying a tablet is becoming more and more difficult these days. In the old days, people used to have limited options or more like one option, which was the Apple’s iPad. Although, the iPad made a lot of name in the tablet arena, but now it faces a lot of competition from several competitors and one of them is Samsung, which has recently introduced its Galaxy Tab and it looks like the only tablet other than the iPad that can match the iPad’s level. If you are doing a comparison between the two of these, then you should read this article because we will provide you with all the info you need to decide which one of them is best suited for your personal and professional needs.

Vital Statistics of the iPad

Apple’s iPad comes with a 9.7 inch screen, which is almost the same as a notebook’s, but without the inconvenience of transporting the iPad, because this problem is usually faced when the user is carrying around his or her notebook. The weight of the iPad is 680 grams and has a well built outer body made of quality materials. The overall look of the iPad is metallic, which gives in its favor when the iPad is compared with other tablets that are cheaper looking, such as the Samsung Galaxy Tab.

Vital Statistics of Samsung Galaxy Tab

The reason behind the popularity of Samsung Galaxy Tab is based on the fact that it can easily fit into the pocket of a suit. iPad users do not have that luxury because of the larger size of the iPad, whereas the Samsung Galaxy Tab has a handy 7 inch screen size. However, Samsung has made two versions of its Galaxy Tab, one with a 7 inch screen that can easily fit into a pocket and the other one is with a 10.1 inch HD screen. The 7 inch Samsung Galaxy Tab weighs only 380 grams, which works in its favor. On the other hand, the looks of the Samsung Galaxy Tab are something that works against it as it has a very plastic look and feel to it.


The iPad wins in the areas of design of screen size and for the fact that it is made for professional use. On the other hand, the Samsung Galaxy Tab is more of a backup office tool, which is best suited for personal use. The iPad can be used as a small workstation, if the user is willing to invest in Bluetooth accessories for it, where the Samsung Galaxy Tab may be used for data consultation. A keyboard dock is also available for the Samsung Galaxy Tab.

However, these are not the only things a user looks for in a tablet these days because even if a tablet is designed for official usage, it should be doing just as well in the personal use as well. That means the tablet should be good for watching HD videos and for other personal stuff. Now, both of these tablets are good in this area as well and it all comes down to which size you are more comfortable with carrying around and their prices.
