Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 Vs Apple iPad Mini


The tablet market is witnessing no dearth of competition these days. Two of the most watched out for rivals are corporate giants Apple and Samsung. The two manufactures are fighting hard to capture a larger market share that the other. Moreover, the two companies manufacture only quality products. This makes it all the more difficult to decide which one is the better of the two. 

Talking of tablets, Apple has launched Apple iPad Mini while Samsung unveiled the Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 at the Mobile World Congress (MWC) this year. In terms of quality, specifications and features the two are good and they stand shoulder to shoulder in competition with each other. However, we decided to compare the two slates. When we put them along side each other, here’s what we found. 

Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 Vs. Apple iPad Mini
To begin with Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 looks like it is the Note 2’s clone. Note 8.0 slate is Samsung Galaxy Note 2 with a screen size of 8-inches. Some share the opinion that in terms of its size, the Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 resembled the iPad Mini. The truth however is that the Note 8.0 looks like a smaller iPad Mini. 

The body of the Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 makes it look and feel like a premium gadget. Plastic has been used to make this device. The curved corners and its glossy finish gives this gadget a neat look. However, this device weighs heavier than the iPad Mini. The Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 weighs about 338 grams or 11.9 ounce. This device comes with a screen resolution of 1280 * 800. Higher the pixel density means images will be noticeably sharper. We tested the screen of the Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 and we noticed that the screen provided an excellent view from almost any viewing angle. One thing that the screen lacks is Super AMOLED display. You can use the S Pen to write on the screen of this device. This device being as slim as just 8mm and this makes it comfortably slip into a bag. 

In terms of performance Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 is top class. The speed of this device is impressive. Thanks to the 1.6GHz quad-core processor that powers this device. This device also comes with features like radios for WiFi a/b/g/n, GB RAM, A-GPS, Bluetooth 4.0 and an internal storage capacity of up to 32GB. However, storage capacity of this device can be expanded using a microSD expansion. This device runs on a powerful 4,600mAh battery. 

All in all Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 is one of the perfect competitors for the iPad Mini.  Here’s a closer look at the specifications and features of the latter.

In terms of design, build and physical appearance iPad Mini wins the race hands-down. Thanks to the high-quality materials that are used in its making. This is a premium product by all means. iPad Mini is as light as just 10.8 ounce and is as thin as just 7.2mm. This goes to say that it is half the weight of the regular iPad. It is impossible to hold this tablet without letting your fingers touch the screen. Apple had foreseen this and to avoid accidents of any kind the company had developed the ‘resist thumb recognition’ technology. Screen resolution of iPad Mini is 1,024 x 768. Users only wished that the iPad Mini came with better sharpness. 

iPad Mini is simply superb in terms of its performance. Thanks to the 1GHz A5 processor that this device runs on. This device has been updated to the 6.1 version of iOS. Apple’s virtual assistance Siri can be accessed on this device. iPad Mini comes with wireless networking support and Bluetooth option. There is a 3.5mm audio connector that is situated on the top of this device. 

If you are passionate about photography, do not expect too much from the iPad Mini’s camera. This device comes packed with a 5MP iSight camera at the rear. This camera comes with advanced features like backside illumination that improves the quality of images that you take. However, this camera comes minus features like HDR mode and flash. iPad Mini also comes with a 1.2MP FaceTime camera.  You can own an iPad Mini with a storage capacity of 16, 32 or 64GB. Storage capacity of this device is non-expandable. 

The Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 and iPad Mini come packed with all the features that you to have on your tablet. Nevertheless, it is difficult to come to a conclusion about which is the best of the two.

What are the Top Computing Trends of 2013 Set to Be?


While we can expect to see some existing trends grow throughout 2013, the biggest impact on computing technology throughout the year ahead is likely to come from entirely new ideas.  One of the quirks of living a life heavily integrated with the technology industry is that if you are not up to speed, you are nowhere at all. Being in touch with the latest trends from across the industry is hugely important at all times, and using the most up to date products even more so.

How will computing technology define our lives throughout 2013? We looked closely at this question.

The Internet of Things

To the outsider, the ‘Internet of Things’ is probably what they think facetious tech junkies have begun calling the internet. They might even think it is the ‘official’ name for the internet.

However, it is something entirely different, and a development that could have a major role on how consumers use the internet. Whether it is accessing data, social media platforms, or the further personalisation of the internet, this will be a huge revolution, and it begins here in 2013.

Cyber Security

It seems that almost every day since the turn of the year has seen us reading about the latest cyber-attack, whether that be on Twitter accounts or on the databases of some of the planet’s biggest businesses and groups.

Expect there to be further evolution of this industry this year, as security providers move to create barriers that are almost impenetrable, and a service that allows any breaches to be detected and dealt with immediately.

No matter how far cyber security evolves, however, there will always be the feeling that it is nothing but the next move in the continuing game of cat and mouse between hackers and global companies.

3D Gaming

Not every trend in the world of computing is related to PC’s, and one of the biggest in the coming months is certain to be 3D gaming on a traditional console.

Microsoft, for example, have filed a patent for a projector to display 3D game images on a wall, meaning the next Call of Duty game or FIFA 14 might not be played on the television, but on a battlefield or football pitch that you are stood in the middle of.

Gaming should not be the end of the continuing 3D trend, however. Expect to see the next evolution forward from touch screen computers as the cost of 3D technology comes down. By the end of the year, we could see laptops that project menus into the room in front of you, allowing you to ‘pick up and open’ the application you want to use, for example, or navigate your way around the internet.

Limitless Potential

The biggest appeal when it comes to technology is that it is impossible to predict where these trends could end. Today, a 3D laptop screen and user interface may seem outrageous, but come next year it may well be the norm.

Whether it is gaming, the ‘Internet of Things,’ Cyber Security or anything else, what we thought we knew and understood about computing technology is sure to change yet again in 2013.
