Apple iPad 4 vs Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1, the new iPad is cooler

Few days later after Google announced its brand new 10-inch Nexus 10 tablet, which is being touted as “the world’s highest resolution tablet display, I have compared the device with Apple’s iPad 4.” Today, with the patent infringement battle between Apple and Samsung continues going, many of us may get confused about which one is better for buying this holiday season, so here I compared the Apple's revamped iPad with Retina Display with the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 to make your purchasing decision easier.

iPad 4 vs Galaxy Note 10.1

Display
Apple’s new iPad is up with a 9.7-inch Retina Display that offers a mesmeric screen resolution of 2048 x 1536 pixels at a 264 PPI (Pixel Per Inch) density and a 4:3 aspect ratio. While The Note 10.1 sports a 10.1-inch display that only has a screen resolution of 1280 x 800 pixels at a 149 PPI. I’m always curious about that why Samsung don’t use a higher resolution in order to compete with other high-end tablets.
Winner: Apple iPad is unbeatable in screen resolution.

Design
The iPad 4 is 241.2 x 185.7 x 9.4mm and 652g (662g for the Wi-Fi + Cellular model). The Galaxy Note 10.1 is 262 x 180 x 8.9mm and 597g (600g for the 3G version), and the Transformer Prime is 263 x 180.8 x 10.4mm and 586g. That's without the dock, of course: adding that takes its widest point to 19.4mm and its weight to 1,123g.

Processor
The new Apple tablet comes with its own A6X chip inside a dual core processor that clocked at 1.5GHz, which Apple said it would be twice as fast as that of the iPad 3. The Galaxy Note 10.1 powers the Sammy’s Exynos quad-core processor with a clocking speed of 1.4GHz. And according to the detail information from extremetech.com, iPad 4 benchmarks confirm the A6X as the most powerful SoC on the market.
Winner: Draw

Memory
Samsung galaxy Note 10.1 supply extra power to their quad core CPUs with 2GB of onboard RAM. It is a great advantage for the tablets over iPad 4, which is presumably to go with the same 1GB RAM of its predecessor.
Winner: Galaxy Note 10.1

Storage
Both the iPad and the Galaxy Note 10.1 are available with 16/32/64 GB on-board storage options. However, the Galaxy Note 10.1 also has the option to expand the memory to a further 64GB by using a microSD card. Both these tablets come in variants with added cellular connectivity, but only the iPad 4 can use LTE networks.
Winner: Galaxy Note 10.1

Camera
The iPad and Galaxy Note 10.1 both feature a 5-megapixel rear-facing camera. However, Samsung offers a 1.9-megapixel front-facing camera, while Apple offers a 1.2 megapixels one.
Winner: Galaxy Note 10.1

Battery 
The new iPad powers a 42.5 watt-hour battery, which Apple claims will provide 10 hours of usage. When compared to the iPad, Samsung doesn't claim anything, just saying the Galaxy Note 10.1 includes a powerful 7000mAh battery.

Operating System
The Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 runs on Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich (ICS), while the iPad runs on the latest iOS 6. Although Samsung has already begun delivery of Android 4.1 for the Galaxy Note 10.1 in some parts of the world, we should admit that there are still more great running apps on the iPad 4.

If the Galaxy Note 10.1 were to be a regular Android tablet, the discussion would have stopped there. However, a unique feature of the Galaxy Note 10.1 is the S Pen stylus which makes the tablet stands out among other available tablets. The Note 10.1 can take advantage of the ever increasing number of S-Pen optimized apps. The Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 shares its resolution with the Galaxy Note 10.1, meaning all S-Pen optimized apps (S Memo, Air View, S Note and such) are available on the big brother as we.

This is the unique selling point of the Galaxy Note 10.1: do you want to be able to accurately outline graphs, take notes or go creative from a graphical perspective? The Galaxy Note 10.1 has you covered. Add Samsung’s software tweaks (Multitasking is a real winner), the Galaxy S3-inspired Smart Functions and the various useful features of Jelly Bean and the Note 10.1 seems to be a very potent tablet when it comes to its software capabilities.
Winner: Draw

Price
Samsung galaxy Note 10.1 32GB version comes for just $499, the price you may have to pay for the 16GB iPad 4. Of course, both of the devices will offer at a lower price during the holiday season. Just check the new information.

Conclusion
The Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 is an interesting tablet that many could grow fond of, especially if users utilize of the S-Pen. It is very useful for students. But judging overall, the Apple iPad 4 features a superior display, and has access to an unrivaled range of tablet optimized apps that offer more things to you.

So which one would you get? Thank you for Leave your opinion.
