Differences Between Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 (P7100) and Apple iPad

Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 (P7100) vs an Apple iPad

The Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 is just the bigger brother of the very popular Galaxy Tab 7. It poses as a more direct competitor to the similarly sized iPad. To start with, the Galaxy Tab has a slightly bigger 10.1-inch screen than the 9.7-inch screen of the iPad. Despite the increase in screen size, it still manages to be slightly thinner and narrower than the iPad; managing to shave off a few millimeters in thickness and almost a centimeter on the left and right-hand side. The Galaxy Tab achieves this by using a narrower bezel around the display compared to the very thick one used on the iPad.

The Galaxy Tab has one major improvement over the iPad; the utilization of a dual core processor. This is very handy when running multiple apps at once as the apps can be distributed evenly between the two cores thereby lessening the load. The iPad has a single core processor and cannot handle multiple apps running at once. Apple goes around the problem with a bit of trickery as they only allow limited multitasking. Only a few apps are allowed to run in the background and others are ‘paused’ when not in use.

Cameras have staple features in mobile phones, and the Galaxy Tab also has two of them; a front facing and a rear facing. In comparison, the iPad doesn’t have any cameras, and this has been one of the top requests to be added on the next version.

Lastly, the two devices use different operating systems. The Galaxy Tab has Android 3.0, the tablet optimized version of Android, while the iPad has iOS. The two are pretty much on even ground now, and it is mostly just a matter of preference as to what both have. Those with Apple products, like the iPhone or Mac, may prefer the iPad since they already have accounts at the iTunes store while those who do not have or like Apple products may prefer the Galaxy Tab.
