To many people, it seems odd to compare the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 with the iPad Mini. How can a tablet PC be compared to a smartphone? If you take a closer look at the market, you’ll see that tablets are getting smaller and smartphones larger. And this gives us a reason to compare both devices. Which one is right for you? Let’s check out both devices and find out which one is the better choice.
Comparing the DISPLAY
The iPad Mini has a bigger display than the Samsung Galaxy Note at 7.9 inches. The display of the Note 2 is only 5.5 inches, but it has a super AMOLED HD display. It gives you a cinema-like experience. The iPad Mini, on the other hand, has an IPS LED screen and is perfect for users who want to enjoy stellar angles. When it comes to display, you should pick the Galaxy Note 2 if you want a clear display. If you want a widescreen, go with the iPad Mini.
Checking out the OPERATING SYSTEM
The iPad Mini has the iOS6, Apple’s latest mobile platform. The device comes with Apple’s new Maps app as well as Siri. However, unlike iPhone 5, you can’t find an official YouTube app in the iPad Mini as it was removed from iOS6.
The Galaxy Note 2 has the Jelly Bean or the Android 4.1.1. An upgrade is also available, which is the 4.2.2. Since it runs on Android, you can access Google Play Store and enjoy seeing numerous apps, games, and media. The Play Store allows you to make the most out of your Note 2.
Appreciating the PROCESSOR
The iPad Mini has an A5 dual-core processor. It’s the same processor that powers the iPad 2 as well as the iPhone 4S. The iPad Mini has incredible battery life and makes watching videos, playing games, surfing the web, and editing photos smooth.
The Note 2 also has an impressive processor – the quad-core Cortex-A9. It’s the same processor used in the Samsung Galaxy S3. However, the clock speed of the Note’s processor is faster. Thus, you are assured that web surfing will be fast. Even playing videos will be a great experience.
