Both are set to compete in the market in the days to come. Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 Edition Vs. Apple iPad 5 specs, features comparison makes interesting reading.

Samsung’s greatest opponent versus the upcoming Apple iPad 5 is already announced. It is the second edition of its Galaxy Note 10.1 tablet – known as Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 Edition – that has been officially released at the just concluded IFA 2013 tech expo in Berlin. The new-gen iPad 5 is just expected for official release sometime this fall. As per Apple’s last year custom, let us rightfully look forward for the device in Oct. 2013 itself.

Anyways, it is sure that the iPad 5 will find Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 Edition as the major challenge from the Android side. Well, in spite of Galaxy Tab 10.1 series and other big-screen Android tablets from firms like Asus, the new Note 10.1, thanks to a blend of several advanced features, is capable to fight the upcoming iPad tablet severely. And it forces us to lay a Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 Edition Vs Apple iPad 5 comparison here.

Display: The officially released Galaxy Note 10.1 has arrived in stores with a big 10.1-inch WQXGA “Super Clear” LCD screen that packs a resolution of  2560 x 1600 pixels at 299-ppi. Thanks to Apple’s greater-than-HD mobile display screen, it is sure iPad 5 will have an advantage over the new Galaxy Note 10.1 in display resolution. Apple will be offering better display quality, vividness and brightness, of course.

Going through the leaked iPad 5 rear casing, it looks that the next edition iPad will look like an over-sized and long-drawn-out iPad Mini. It means the next gen iPad is likely to get a further smaller and slimmer profile over the current model of the device. As per UberGizmo, the new edition iPad is to feature the GF2 screen technology different from the GG touch technology that Apple deployed on its past models.

Processor: Following on from the Galaxy S4, the new Galaxy Note 10.1 offers two different processor configurations for its 3G/Wi-Fi or 4G LTE models. The former model (3G or Wi-Fi) is to equip a 1.9GHz octa-core chipset and 3GB RAM. Meanwhile, the 4G LTE model is to get only a quad-core chip that will clock at a pretty faster 2.3GHz.

It is when the next edition iPad is most likely to appear in stores with a quad core-like processor that mounts Apple’s projected brand new A7 chipset. This setup is hoped to provide around 30 percent better power than the current model’s A6X chipset. 2GB of RAM and a rather better processor can also be expected inside the upcoming Apple iPad 5.

Others: The new Galaxy Note 10.1 has turned up with a more finished and small S Pen, Samsung’s exclusive digitizer for its Galaxy Note series. It is a great asset for creative professionals, artists and writers as they can easily enter their work to the device without using fingers for everything. The new Galaxy Note’s S Pen is pretty smaller and it can be stored in the device’s shell horizontally rather than vertically.

Further, Samsung preloads an array of premium native apps in the device, letting you enjoy more features and functions. Listed as Samsung Content Gifts, the apps include the ones from The New York Times app, a special edition of Samsung’s Autodesk Sketchbook, optimized Twitter and more.

In case of iPad 5, we can’t tell what things it will preload at this point of time. It is said that the device would integrate fingerprint scanner in the device’s homescreen, and a wide range of similar features. Anyways, we are not still sure when exactly the device would come out of the cover. Some rumors think it would come at the Apple’s Sept. 10 media event, while some think it would only be released in the fall.

    A tip for artists with great sketching apps on their iPad that need a good stylus. Don’t go through the trouble of switching to an S Pen tablet just yet. There are plenty of third party iPad styluses to get in Best Buy. If you lean your hand on the screen a lot, just put on a comfortable glove while you use the stylus. Easy as Apple pie.
