Apple iPad 2 vs Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 – Tablet Wars

The second iteration of the Apple’s tablet PC, the iPad 2 faces a different set of competition than its older brother.

The success enjoyed by iPad 1 has led competitors to develop their own tablets all with the hopes of taking a chunk out of the growing tablet market.

In this review, we look at one of the iPad 2′s formidable competitor the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1.

The Galaxy Tab 10.1 is not just a size upgrade. It also features several improvements as well.

Below is a head to head comparison between Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 vs Apple Ipad 2.

1. Processor

The iPad 2 is equipped with Apple’s dual-core 1GHz A5 processor, a marked improvement over the previous iPad’s A4. The A5 chip boasts a graphical performance that is reported at ten times over the older tablet. As of this review, there is no report yet on the iPad 2′s RAM size but 512MB is expected.

The Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 is packed with the 1GHz Nvidia Tegra 2 dual-core processor. Just like the iPad 2 no figures are released yet as to the Galaxy Tab 10.1′s available RAM making a comparison difficult.

For this category, we give a tie.

Advantage: Tie

2. Display

The display on iPad 2 is a carryover of the original iPad. It is not a bad thing because we still rate 9.7-inch backlit-LED IPS screen considered to be the best on it’s class.

The Galaxy Tab 10.1 has a 10.1-inch, 1280 x 800 pixel screen. This is about half an inch larger than the iPad 2.

Still, we give the iPad 2 an edge in this category.

Advantage: Apple iPad 2

3. Design and Build

The build quality and design of apple are quite exquisite. The iPad 2 is a perfect representation of the company’s commitment to those ideals.

The iPad 2 is slimmer and lighter than its older brother but we did not feel a sacrifice in build quality and use of materials. It’s more comfortable to carry now because the it feels solid.

The Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 sports a 246.2 x 170.4 x 10.9mm, 599g size and weight dimensions. The Tab appears longer and the iPad 2 appears shorter and slimmer. Weight difference is negligible.

We give our thumbs up to the iPad 2 in this category.

Advantage: Apple iPad 2

4. Operating System

iOS 4.3 are built in iPad 2. While it has improvements over the previous OS in terms of web browsing and application, the improvements seem like a minor tune-up.

On the other hand, the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1′s Android 3.0 feels like it has been developed to take multi-tasking chores to another level. We feel “Honeycomb” OS are more user friendly now.

Advantage: Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1

5. Camera

The iPad 2′s cameras are a 0.7-megapixel main camera with 720P HD capture capability. There are also a secondary VGA camera for video conferencing purposes.

The Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 has an impressive 8 megapixel dual LED flash, 1080p Full HD video, 24fps camera at the rear and a 2 megapixel camera in front.

Advantage: Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1

6. Connectivity

EDR and A2DP capable and Bluetooth 2.1 are built in iPad 2. It also has Wi-Fi a,b,g & n, and an HDMI-output. However, it lacks a MicroSD slot, an USB port and a card reader. Its 3G connectivity is data only.

The Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 has Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and 3G connectivity. But, it has no SD card slot as well. We are rating this category a tie.

Advantage: Tie

As of this writing, Samsung has yet to announce its price for the Galaxy Tab 10.1. Until that is announced, the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 has a slight advantage above iPad 2.
