Why Samsung Galaxy 3 was my choice over the Apple iPad Mini

Updated on December 18, 2013

Comparison between the iPad and Galaxy 3

Both tablets are under $350. The advantages of the iPad is that the both the look and feel of it is better but in the resolution on the Samsung galaxy 3 is a little better. The speakers are spot as far as the size but the Samsung has better quality and clearer for music listening purposes. Android tablet has a better ratio for videos but the iPad take better pictures. The photos can be manipulated better on the Samsung but the iPad mini beats the Samsung on the front side camera. iPad mini camera has better clarity. The iPad wins out with the clarity. The iPad mini also beats the galaxy out in the touch screen gaming arena. The battery life doesn't drain rapidly when not being used on the galaxy 3 however as far as they battery life over all will go to the mini because the battery life last close to 7 hours a little longer that galaxy tab 3. Now for the price point the best price goes to Samsung galaxy 3. So in overall I think the Samsung Galaxy wins out overall.



Different specification broken down from each tablet

The Tab 3 8.0 first developed in Sept 2013 can out ready aggressively and strong to beef up income revenue for Samsung.

The Wi-Fi-only device is equipped with:

  • Dual core processor
  • 1.5 GB of RAM.
  • A screen with a resolution of 1280 x 800 pixels.
  • A 1.3 megapixel front-facing camera and 5 megapixel rear camera.
  • On-device storage is either 16 or 32GB but you can increase that up to 64GB with a microSD card.

This device is a great supplement to a laptop and it is also good on the go. according to

Apple iPad 2 mini was firs introduced in 2011 so it is older that the Samsung 3 meaning that is behind as far as technology but it is still holding on the price.

  • LED-backlit display
  • dual-core processor
  • Front and rear facing camera
  • Ten hours of battery life
  • Built in Wi-Fi and bluetooth
  • 16 GB flash storage

Now for the best part

Even though the iPad mini has better accessories the galaxy offers better apps that are offered for free with there devices.Samsung has the Android 4.1.1 which means it has the latest operating system. Again the decision goes to the Samsung galaxy. I compared them both again the memory with was the 16 Gb f memory. If you want to use the tablet for iPad for more of professional use the looking in the wrong place but if you like it for gaming you are good to go. I would love to carry the tablet around versus a laptop. The iPad also has more app available. The tablet can be ran anywhere; on the bus, in class, in church because it is fantastic enough to download the bible, and in the classroom.

Tablets have taken the world by storm. Being first introduced to the iPhone 4s I figured it was a no brainer to upgrade to the iPad. But right now the Samsung Galaxy is more updated. Tablets were first introduced over ten years ago by Microsoft but price was a factor then and now. iPad came out with a more up to date less expensive creation of technology. More people are buying tablet because of the convenience you can practically take it everywhere with you. It's a mobile book, it shows movies, takes pictures, records family home movies of clips etc. It was weighs much less than the laptop, you can slide it right into my purse or hand bag. With Wi-Fi technology it is a great tool to use on the go.

Tablet of great mobile devices


For your information

It just depends on what you are use.

The tablets is touchscreen responsive. Its more easier to play games on and it comes with an in demand feature like Bluetooth a walking internet. If you are use to the Samsung galaxy smartphone then chances that nine times out ten you will probably want to migrate to the Samsung tablet which is what I did each phone had its on features that I liked but I eventually went with the one that had the newest software, and most up-to-date operating system that didn't break the budget. I had each phone in the past and each tablet in the past, if it wasn't for the applications that could be downloaded from the apple store and all the accessories offered, there wouldn't even be a comparison in my opinion. The Samsung would win for me.

Rate this product, help me decide.

5 out of 5 stars from 1 rating of Galaxy 3
