The biggest rivalry in the tech world has to be the one between Samsung and Apple. The two companies are renowned for always going against each other on the smartphone market, but that’s not where the competition ends. Apple and Samsung are also competing against each other on the tablet market. Today we’re going to take a closer look at what both companies have to offer in terms of high-end tablets and see which company has designed the best one.
Samsung Galaxy Book vs Apple iPad Pro
Not everyone might know, but the demand for tablets has been declining for the past few years. This is why most companies have restrained themselves from creating new tablet offerings, including Samsung. Fortunately, the South Korean tech giant decided to refresh its tablet lineup with a 10.6 inch and 12 inch models. On the other hand, Apple’s iPad Pro comes in the 9.7 inch and 12.9 inch variants. Rumor has it that the upcoming iPad Pro 2 lineup will ship in a 10.5 inch model.
Samsung Galaxy Book vs Apple iPad Pro: Hardware Power
This comparison will be mainly focused on the hardware performances these tablets are able to provide. Taking in consideration the fact that these new tablets are being marketed as “able to replace laptops”, they are required to ship with impressive performances. Nonetheless, let’s take a look under their hoods and see what we can find.
First off, Galaxy Book is powered by a very impressive Intel seventh generation Core i5 chipset. The processor clocks at 3.1GHz and it is coupled with either 4GB of 8GB of RAM, depending on the acquired variant. Apple decided to equip its premium tablet with its own A9X chipset. The processor has a base boost of 2.16GHz which can go up to 2.26GHz. Additionally, Apple has paired the processor with 4GB of RAM.
Samsung Galaxy Book vs Apple iPad Pro: Conclusion
Even though this was a brief comparison and we only went over hardware power, it’s pretty clear that Samsung’s tablet has the upper hand. Even though Apple’s iPad Pro is able of providing owners with impressive hardware performances, it pales in comparison with Galaxy Book’s performances.
