Samsung Galaxy Tab S vs Galaxy Tab Pro – Choose The Tablet That Suits Your Needs
Last year, Samsung released two killer tablets, each one being available in more size variants and awesome specs, which we’ll tell you about in this article. However, on one of the models, Samsung used it’s own chip, while the other has a Qualcomm chip. The rest of specs are relatively similar on both tablets.
Galaxy Tab S
This tablet was released on June 2014 with two screen variants: 8.4inches and 10.5inches, both supporting a resolution of 2560 x 1600 pixels (Super AMOLED), but having different pixel densities (it’s lower on the tablet with a larger screen). Both tablets are very light and come with a plastic back with perforated dots, like on the Galaxy S5, but they lack a stylus and they’re not protected against dust and water.
This model is powered by Samsung’s Exynos 5 Octa 5420 processor consisting of two quad core processors clocked at 1.9GHz and 1.3GHz, which are backed by Mali-T628 MP6 graphics and 3GB of RAM. The tests showed that the processor lags when taking on a full load, but overall, the performance is decent, especially when playing games.
There are two variants of internal memory with capacities of 16GB – which costs 298 dollars (8.4inch) or 398 dollars (10.5inch), or 32GB, which costs 459 dollars (10.5inch), but both support expansion up to 128GB.
The rear camera is 8MP and has LED flash and autofocus, while the front side features a 2.1MP shooter.
Galaxy Tab Pro
This model is available in three size variants: 8.4inches, 10.1inches and 12.2inches and all of them support a resolution of 2,560 x 1,600pixels. They have a prettier design thanks to the faux leather back with fake stitches on the edges, and obviously, the tablets are very thin and light, but they’re very expensive.
The Tab Pro 8.4inches variant is powered by a Quad-core 2.3 GHz Krait 400 processor which is based on a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor and which has 2GB of RAM. The other variants feature an Exynos Octa 5420 processor with 2GB of RAM on the 10.1inches model and 3GB of RAM on the 12.2inches model.
Likewise the Tab S, this model has storage variants of 16GB and 32GB, but they’re expandable only up to 64GB. The rear camera is also 8MP with the same features as on the Tab S, while the front camera is 2MP.
All three variants of the Tab Pro can be purchased from Amazon, where the minimum price for the 8.4inches model with 16GB of storage is 229 dollars, while the 12.2inches model with 16GB of storage costs 500 dollars.
