Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 vs. Apple iPad (Video)

A couple days back, we had the chance to go hands-on with Samsung’s newest tablet, the big, high-res Galaxy Note 10.1. From the S-pen support, to the choice of processors, to the new faux-leather-texture back panel (complete with that darling fake stitchwork), the new 10.1 shares more than just a name with the also-brand-new Note 3. As the new Samsung tablet heavyweight to beat, we were interested to see how it would compare to its competition, so swung back around Samsung’s way for another look at the Note 10.1 2014 edition, this time with an iPad in tow.

Sure, Apple’s likely to be just weeks away from announcing the iPad 5, but for the time being, we’ll make do with what we have, which in this case happened to be a third-generation iPad.

You might argue that the Note 10.1 and iPad are for different kinds of tablet users, with different priorities, and there’s a fair point to be made there. Still, other shoppers just don’t know what they’re looking for, and could be checking out both these models; how will they rank the two? Let’s go hands-on and see how these compare for ourselves.
