Galaxy Tab vs iPhone 4S

Samsung has outdone Apple and is now the new leader in the smart phones. Still threats posed by the Apple is obviously a concern  not only Samsung but also for other smart phone makers. Let us not worry about the management and the strategy adopted by them in marketing their products. But what features makes their product unique is a catch. Let us compare two smart phones  from the leader and the former. One is Samsung’s  galaxy tab and other is the Apple’s iPhone 4s which have almost attracted everybody.I know they have been released long time ago, still it is good topic to discuss!!

The above table give the overview and basic detail that are required for a comparison when it comes to a smart phone. First the platform galaxy uses Android and apple its own OS. I go with Samsung as such I am an open source lover it occurs to me that development of apps could me more easier on android than on iPhone 4s.

Battery life of galaxy far better than apple and for music lovers it is definitely  Galaxy as you can have 72hrs of constant music.

Apple rules when it come to taking pic or capturing a video which has a 8mp camera whereas Samsung just has 3Mp camera But the front camera of the Samsung is 2Mp and apple just has a VGA quality camera.

Oops size and weight is a major concern in galaxy tab and I give it Apple , which has a slim and sleek design and you will never feel its presence in your pocket and if wanna a buy galaxy then don’t complain about its weight.

Both have similar feature when it comes to connectivity and sensors.

The processor, for those (Particularly businessmen) if have lots to process in a short period then Galaxy is good with its 1GB RAM  but if you are concerned about storage capacity then go for Apple.

So thus , No !! I am not going to give the summary it depends on your purpose and usage that you pick your choice. Still if you are crazy about Mr.Steve jobs and Apple then don’t care about the above review just go and grab your piece!!
