With the official release of Samsung’s Galaxy Note 10.1, the analysts have begun the debate if Galaxy Note 10.1 has achieved its objective which was to surpass Apple’s iPad. We take you to through three major subjects of debates to give you an idea regarding the extent to which Samsung succeeded with its latest tablet.
Samsung’s Galaxy Note 10.1 features 1.4 GHz quad-core processors with 2 GB RAM. Although iPad comes with half the number of cores but both of the tablets provide four graphics cores, however, Apple’s overall graphic performance is more powerful. Both tablets are available in 8 GB, 16 GB and 32 GB models.
Display is one feature that can single-handedly make or break a device’s impression instantly. Apple’s retina display has remained unmatched since its launch, and Galaxy Note 10.1 lets it remain unmatched. Samsung manufactures the 9.7 inches LCD panels and processors for Apple’s iPad, ironically, Samsung could not use the same panels or manufacture something better for their own tablets. Galaxy Note’s 10.1 inches screen is bright, responsive and crisp, but does not match the high quality offered by the new iPad.
Sensors and communication
To our surprise, Samsung matches the sensors and communication options with that of Apple’s quite well. Both offer HSPA+, GSM/EDGE/GPRS. Wi-Fi a/b/g/n and Bluetooth 4.0 . As far as sensors are concerned, both offer gyro, accelerometer, ambient light sensors and digital compass.
Although, Samsung may have not outclassed Apple’s new iPad but it has certainly proved its Galaxy Note 10.1 to be the best alternative so far. Analysts believe that users do not spend on tablets as much as they do on smart phones; therefore, they tend to go for the best they can get. Hence, conquering Apple’s market may still prove to be a tough goal for Samsung.
