Samsung is gearing up to launch its Galaxy Note 10.1 tablet to do battle with the new iPad from Apple, but is the Galaxy Note 10.1 worth the trouble? I don't think so. If you can't wait until Windows 8 comes around to get yourself a tablet that can do everything you want, then you are better off getting a new iPad.
Apple's big baby is not the number one selling tablet for nothing, it earned the right to be at the top and I cannot see anything in the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 that is compelling enough to choose it over the new Apple iPad. Here we have the top 5 reasons you should spend your hard earned cash on a new Apple iPad instead of the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1.
1. Better Display
Let's face it. While the Galaxy Note 10.1 display is bigger than the new iPad's 9.7-inch display, it is far from being better. The screen resolution on the new iPad is 2048x1536, which totally eclipses the 1280x800 resolution found in the Galaxy Note 10.1. Some might consider this as not being a big deal, but it is. Nothing beats a killer display that is able to show a Web page in its entirety without the need to zoom in. Also, when it comes down to movies and game, they will definitely look a lot better on the new iPad, since the display is full HD.
2. Better Hardware
The Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 might have a quad core chipset onboard, but there won't be any performance differences when it comes to speed between it and the new iPad. Apple chose to play it safe for the sake of the battery, and thus dropped a 1GHz dual core brain inside the new iPad along with a quad core GPU. What does this mean? It means games on the new iPad will look exceptionally better when compared to Samsung's newest toy.
3. Better Looks and Design
I know for certain that some of you are saying in your minds that looks doesn't matter. Guess what? That's a lie, one that has been passed down from generation to generation. The new iPad is one sexy beast of a tablet. However, while the Galaxy Note 10.1 is not ugly, it hasn't in any way matched up to what Apple is offering.
4. Better Content
With iTunes and the App Store, the new iPad surely has the Galaxy Note 10.1 beaten to a pulp. Applications and games are a couple of things that set the new Apple tablet apart from its competitors. If a user wants to purchase music or a movie, they can do all of this including watching their favorite TV season right from the device itself.
Google has been trying very hard to garner great content in the Google Play Store, and although the numbers are growing, Apple still has a healthy lead that seems impossible to overcome.
5. Better Long Term Support
A problem Android based devices face, is a lack of long term support. The new iPad will be supported for a long time with the latest OS updates. However, one can't say the same thing about the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1. It is long known that Android devices do not always have the luxury of long term support, unless the device is called a Nexus. So save yourself the trouble and get yourself a new iPad.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 is a relatively good tablet, but even with S-Pen and the latest version of Android; it is still no match for the king of the hill, the new iPad. I fail to see anything in the Galaxy Note 10.1 that could compel me to get it over the new iPad, and I bet some of you may feel the same way.
