iPad Mini vs Galaxy Note 2, Which One Will You Buy?

Those who are considering Samsung Galaxy Note 2 and Apple iPad Mini as their next tablet would definitely love to know the differences before buying any one of these. Let us look and compare these two popular pieces of technology available in the market.

Processor And RAM:
The iPad Mini has an A5 chip and a power VR GPU that are responsible for its fast and fluid performance, giving the users some real time iPad experience. With a RAM size of 1 GB this mini tablet offers a number of memory storage options ranging from 16GB to 64 GB. However, the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 takes the lead here with a 2GB RAM and the Exynos quad core processor that gives an incredible gaming experience and a better storage capacity.

Galaxy note 2 comes with a 5.5-inch HD display and a ppi of 306 that makes it perfect for watching movies and video clips. This definitely gives it another edge over the iPad Mini which is still behind in terms of the display quality, screen colors and ppi.

Operating System:
Though Samsung Galaxy Note 2 has the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean version, iPad Mini is also supported by iOS 6 that is the most updated OS. This allows the iPad Mini users to have access to over 200 additional features, which is even more than what Google offers. Therefore, there is no denying that the iPad Mini beats note 2 when it is about customized applications for a tablet.

Having a camera of 8 megapixels on the back and a front camera of 1.9 megapixel, Galaxy Note 2 offers a better picture quality and faster image output. On the other hand, iPad Mini comes with a 5 megapixel camera and a front camera of 2 megapixels that gives you a good image result. However, the Samsung Galaxy note 2 users enjoy an advantage in this regard which is also because small devices are easier to take picture with.

So, the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 is unarguably superior to iPad Mini in the above discussed categories and also because it contains many competitive features including S-Pen, GPS etc. However, for those of you who want a wide range of tablet- customized applications in a lesser price iPad Mini is the better alternative to go with.
