When Apple introduced its iPad 4 in October, the market already knew a tablet of success in the 10-inch segment: the Samsung Galaxy Note 1.10 that was released in August. These two multinationals are right now and with the permission of brands such as HTC, LG and Sony, which are moving the foundations of current mobile communications.
When Apple introduced the iPad in April nothing had changed in the screen and appearance regarding the iPad 3: Retina, 9.7-inch, 1,536 by 2,048 pixels and 264 ppi density. However, at this point, the Galaxy Note 10.1 is much simpler: 800 by 1,280 pixels, with a density of 149 dpi, 10.1 inch PLS TFT technology.Clearly, Apple surpasses in this respect the model of Samsung, but the Koreans have already been charged with making a tablet that does exceed that of the block: the Nexus 10 that Google sells in his shop with 1600 by 1560 pixel resolution and 299 ppi density.
In direct relation to the screen size, the difference in size and weight is precisely because outside the Samsung tablet has 10.1 inches then is higher, and that of Apple 9.7 which makes this wider. 4 iPad weight is of 662 grams while the note remains in the 600 grams, because the first battery has a higher capacity (mAh 11,560, about 13 hours of operation compared to 7,000 mAh, about 7 hours of operation ).
Processor, RAM and storage
The processor A6X dual core 1.4 GHz is one of the changes the iPad 4 with respect to its predecessor. Performance tests have demonstrated that exceeds A5X chip. In the case of the Galaxy Note 10.1, its heart is a quad-core Exynos 1.4 GHz with getting management, optimization and yield very high, in addition to carrying a RAM of 2 GB half against rival iPad 4.
Both models are available with a choice of internal storage but the best thing is that the Galaxy Note has card slot micro SD lacking something all Apple products. In fact, when we talked about the future options of the iPhone 6, always mentioned improving this capability, either through standard memory of 128 GB or through external cards.
We all know that the iPad 4 comes standard with the latest version of iOS, the 6, while the Galaxy Note 10.1, who was born with Ice Cream Sandwich, Android has been updated since 4.1, Jelly Bean. The good thing about this team is finally allowing its management to the S-Pen , stylus, which characterizes the entire series Note that its TouchWiz interface has been optimized for handling and multitasking function is fully integrated. At this point no one cough to Note.
Finally, the price
Although the basic models (16 GB Wi-Fi only) may have a similar price, hovering around 500 euros, the truth is always Samsung models are available through most distributors Spanish or foreign pages. As they say our fellow Tablet Zone , the fact is that the model of Koreans out cheaper when enlarged memory options and 3G connectivity.
