Although it runs Android KitKat, the Google software is blended with Samsusng’s TouchWiz interface , while the 10.5 display is capable of a maximum resolution of 2560 x 1600. Samsung opted for the Super AMOLED technology for this device. It isn’t bad at all in the camera department either, with 8 MP for its primary shooter, and 2.1 MP for the front facing camera. And because all that hardware won’t just power itself, Samsung added a 7900 mAh battery that assures 11 hours of 2G talk time and 48 hours of 3G talk time.

Sony Xperia Z 10.1

Design and Features

The Xperia Z 10.1 was released in May 2013, and only comes in black and white. Furthermore, it measures 6.9 x 172 x 266 mm and weighs 495 grams. Let’s start off this spec list by saying that the Xperia Z 10.1 comes with a Qualcomm Snapdragon APQ8064 chipset, an Adreno 320 GPU and a 1.5 GHz quad core processor. The included 2 GB of RAM, alongside the aforementioned specifications result in a solid device, capable of sustaining Android JellyBean, an even upgrade to Android KitKat. It’s original 16 GB of internal storage space can be boosted by another 64 GB, so space shouldn’t be too much o f a problem.

Display, Camera and Battery

Both devices had their moments, with the Galaxy Tab shining in the display and storage categories, while the Sony tablet excelled in OS and processing power. The final blow however, is the price. Both devices have very good specifications and features, but the Galaxy Tab is is a lot cheaper, therefore making it the better choice.
