Samsung is looking to give apple a run for its money. Wonder how? With the announcement of its latest kid—the 7-incher Samsung Galaxy Tab 3, Samsung is confidently sharpening its lance to challenge Apple’s iPad Mini to a duel.
The battle of the smaller warriors is set to begin but we wonder if the Galaxy Tab 3 has enough in it to beat iPad Mini black and blue.
- First things first—the Galaxy Tab 3 is powered by 1.2GHz dual-core processor against the dual-core A5 processor pumping life into the iPad Mini. If bigger means better, then the iPad Mini beats Galaxy Tab 3 with its 7.9-inch multi touch display. To spice up its appearance further, Apple has added LED-backlight with IPS technology on the iPad Mini. Against the Tab 3’s TFT display, this does emerge as a winning card at the outset. On digging deeper, we found that the 169 ppi pixel density of the Tab 3 punches out the Apple prodigy after all.
- Moving away from the killer look story, we turn to the form factor story of the Tab 3 and the iPad Mini. The latter wins hands down with sexy dimension– 7.87 x 5.30 x 0.28 inches against Samsung’s 7.40 x 4.37 x 0.39 inches.
- The lens story starts and ends with the Apple iPad Mini. With a 5-MP clicker on the rear only scares the Galaxy Tab 3’s 3-MP clicker into the corner. As a consolation, perhaps the 1.3 MP front camera earns Samsung some points over Apple iPad Mini’s1.2- MP front cam.
On the last page of the face-off story, we weigh Tab 3’s Android 4.1 Jelly Bean against the iPad Mini’s iOS 6. The winner on this count is yet to be decided. As for the others——we want you to decide your camp.
