If you are looking for a nice tablet and you don’t know what to choose, we have here for you a nice comparison between Samsung’s Galaxy Tab 3 Lite and Apple’s iPad Mini. You can see all the specs and it will hopefully help you in your decision making.
Display and Design
Samsung equipped its tablet with a nice 7 inches TFT touch screen which renders a resolution of 600 x 1024 pixels. The device comes with the following dimensions: 193.4 x 116.4 x 9.7 mm, weighing 310 g.
But then, Apple also equipped its tablet with a nice, bigger touch screen which is a 7.9 inches IPS LCD and LED-backlit one. The resolution on this device isn’t that much higher than the Tab 3 Lite: 768 x 1024 pixels. iPad Mini weighs 308 g and shows off the following dimensions: 200 x 134.7 x 7.2 mm.
Hardware and Operating System
The Galaxy Tab 3 Lite is powered by a 1.2 GHz processor which is a dual core and it sports the PXA986 model of Marvell chipset. It supports 1GB of RAM, as well as 8GB of internal storage (expandable up to 64GB via microSD card). The operating system we see on this device is the Android Jelly Bean.
The iPad Mini is also powered by a dual core processor (the Cortex A9) which works at 1 GHz and, as for chipset, we see the Apple A5. This device comes with 512MB of RAM and multiple options of internal storage: 16GB, 32GB and 64GB (this device doesn’t offer a microSD slot, so the memory isn’t expandable). This tablet runs on iOS 6 (upgradable to iOS 7).
We find that Samsung’s tablet is quite weak when it comes to camera, the Tab 3 Lite having only a rear camera which has 2MP.
On the other hand, the iPad Mini features a rear camera of 5MP and a front camera that has 1.2MP.
A Li-Ion 3600 mAh battery unit is featured on the Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 Lite, while on the iPad Mini we see a Li-Po 16.3 Wh battery unit. Both batteries are non-removable.
The 16GB version of the iPad Mini is found at a price of $240.00, while Samsung’s Galaxy Tab 3 Lite is found at a way cheaper price of $114.99.
