Samsung has released its another favorite work recently. Apparently, it is a product designed to compete with Apple iPad mini. And Samsung official has produced a series of advertising posters for Note 8.0. In those posters, there are comparisons between Note 8.0 and a mini tablet named A Pad mini, well, everyone is smart enough to know it is talking about Note 8.0 and iPad mini.
Obviously, those posters are telling people the reason why choose Note 8.0 not iPad mini. From those posters, we can see there are at least 6 reasons why choose Note 8.0.
First of all, Galaxy 8.0 has multi windows which allows users separate the screen into 2 parts so that users can take down notes directly on the tablet while checking emails or chat with others while surf the internet without switching apps. However, iPad mini cannot support this function.
Secondly, it is a problem about software. Samsung has added a new mode to Galaxy Note 8.0, called the Reading Model. Users can swiftly open and close the Reading Model through the shortcut bar. Automatically, the display color and tonal of E-book app can be optimized. Well, iPad mini doesn’t provide this function either.
Thirdly, Galaxy Note 8.0 is equipped with an S pen which is made on a size that is easy to hold. With the S pen, when users are reading on the Reading Mode, they can turn the page more easily, which makes the reading more enjoyable. The S Pen is no ordinary tool. Use it to tap the hard keys for an even more extensive navigation than before. iPad mini still cannot offer this.
Fourthly, Galaxy Note 8.0 features on an 8 inches display of 1280*800 189 ppi resolution. And iPad mini has adopted a 7.9 inches display with resolution of 1024*768 163ppi. Apparently, it gives better visual experience when watching videos on Note 8.0. However, speaking of watching videos, both tablet cannot support a variety of video formats. So, if you happen to have a camcorder and records in M2T or AVCHD formats, you need to convert them first before you playback on the Note 8.0 or iPad mini. You can consider converting M2T to MP4 well supported by them using the AVCHD Converter which is an all-in-one program able to convert .M2T to .MOV, AVI, etc common video formats like that. And it supports you to import M2T to FCP as well as iMovie for further editing.
Fifthly, Galaxy Note 8.0 has 2GB of memory and supports memory card extension with 1.6 GHz quad core A9 processor when iPad mini just has 512 MB of memory with A5 double core processor. It seems Note 8.0 is more powerful at performance.
Last but not least, Samsung has done better at overall hardware with better standards than iPad mini.
Samsung has openly challenged iPad mini by this way, will Aplle take some measures to fight back? Let’s wait and see.
