Samsung recently showcased its newest addition to its tablet lineup – the Galaxy Note 8.0. And while we feel that this one is the ideal competitor to the iPad Mini, we decided to pit it against the Google Nexus 10 to see if you could consider this new tab as an alternative to Google’s 10-inch offering. Both these tablets run on Android 4.2, so there’s not much difference there. And here’s what else we found:
Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0: This tablet comes with an 8-inch display with a resolution of 1280X800 pixels. It is powered by a quad-core 1.6 GHz Exynos 5250 processor and has 2 GB of RAM, letting you handle any app with ease. A 1.3 MP front-facing camera lets you make video calls conveniently, while the 5 MP rear camera lets you click photos too. There’s 16 GB or 32 GB of internal storage which can be expanded using microSD cards. And of course, there’s the S Pen which lets you take down notes easily on this little tablet.
Google Nexus 10: The Nexus 10 has a gorgeous 10-inch display with a 2560X1600 pixel resolution, which is far higher than that of the Galaxy Note 8.0. But yes, in terms of power, its dual-core 1.7 GHz processor and 2 GB of RAM don’t quite compare with the 8-inch Samsung offering. Like the Note 8.0, the Nexus 10 also has a 5 MP camera in the back but a higher resolution 1.9 MP one in the front.
