Samsung’s Galaxy Note 8.0 is all set to launch in the markets soon, giving tablet consumers yet another very interesting option. So we decided to compare it against the existing Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus to see if you should stick with this buy or wait until the Galaxy Note 8.0 hits the market?

The Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus is a successor to the popular Galaxy Tab 7.0 and is powered by a dual-core 1.2 GHz processor. It has a 7-inch screen with a resolution of 1024X60p pixels and comes with 16 GB or 32 GB of internal storage, in addition to a microSD card slot. The Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus runs on Android 3.2 Honeycomb which can be upgraded to Android 4.0 ICS – we find it rather obsolete now in the age of Android Jelly Bean though.

The Galaxy Note 8.0 has a more powerful quad-core processor, an 8-inch screen with a resolution of 1280X800 pixels, comes with either 16 GB or 32 GB internal storage, expandable up to 64 GB with a microSD card. And better features and a newer Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean give it a much higher score on benchmark tests – 6995 on Quadcrant Standard in comparison with the Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus’s 3357.
