When Apple’s New iPad 3 came into market, people started an interesting comparison with iPad 3 and Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1. On the professional note, it is an interesting comparison between two great devices. Both the devices come in market with the promising features and with great expectations. I can say that these two devices can fairly stands beside each other.
Look: If we generally talk about the “Looks” of the new iPad 3, it doesn’t seems anything special from old iPad 2. Due to the inclusion of gesture control instead of home button the weight of iPad 3 is reduced as compared to iPad 2. Even though iPad 3 give up the home button it is hardly noticeable.
If you we check Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 it is introduced with lot of difference as far as its previous 10-inch Galaxy tab. What people gave reviews about its last version; Samsung did learn from its previous fiasco and made it possible to compete with latest iPad. The smaller stretch space situated above the screen is the real boost for Samsung Galaxy Tab. You can also find the added silver bezel outside which is clearly seen from the sides. When you observe from the physical appearance point of view still Apple iPad 3 leads.
Hardware: Samsung Galaxy Tab is very much suitable for running favorite games and applications as it is based on latest version of Android operating system, Ice Cream Sandwich. Having 1 GHZ dual-core processor chipset it gives it strength to perform best every time.
For iPad 3, all media types coverage is no issue at all in terms of hardware capabilities. IPad 3 came strong with its new processor A5X chipset. The new chipset also consists of quad core graphics which is 4 times faster than Nvidia Tegra 3 chip. So I believe it goes one step ahead with Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 by means of hardware.
Camera: Apple has taken a appealing lead from Samsung as far as the camera is concern. It includes third generation 5MP rear facing camera. On the other hand, Samsung Galaxy Tab brought only 3.15MP primary camera at the rate of 2048×1536 pixels.
The other features which are not part of Samsung, but can be found in iPad 3 are face detection, Geo-tagging and touch focus facilities. Apple wins this round and is far ahead in the competition.
