Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 vs Apple iPad mini vs Google Nexus 7: Specs comparison

Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 vs Apple iPad mini vs Google Nexus 7 specs comparison
Whether you are an admirer of 7 or 8 inch tablet devices, or don't really care about these particular screen sizes, the leading mobile gear makers decided that there is a market niche to be won here, and with the introduction of the Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 everyone will have a dog in the small tablet fight this season.

We are pitting Samsung's latest Note family member against its most formidable opponents - the Apple iPad mini and the Google Nexus 7 small affordable slates. While we don't have much details on price and availability for the Note 8.0 rather than Q2 in Europe and Asia, the other two have been around for a while, so you can have a look how they stack up in the table below.

It's immediately clear that Samsung has placed a lot of effort to make its tablet as slim and light as possible, considering that it also has to house the S Pen silo and the stylus itself. The Note 8.0 is in fact slimmer and a tad lighter than the Nexus 7, despite being the slate with the largest screen of the bunch. Its resolution is actually the same as that of the Nexus 7, with a slightly lower pixel density because of the screen size. Note 8.0 also has the immediately recognizable styling of the Galaxy family with its rounded corners, looking like a larger Note II.

As far as processing power goes, the 1.6 GHz Exynos 4 Quad Cortex-A9 CPU might not be at the fastest edge of ARM's technology, but it would surely be more than enough to handle anything Android throws at it. Moreover, Samsung's tablet is the best of the bunch memorywise, sporting 2 GB of RAM and 16 GB of internal memory, as well as a microSD slot for more, which the other two don't have.

When we add the generous 4, 600 mAh battery and the myriad of productivity options added by the S Pen stylus and the accompanying software, it seems that Samsung has nailed it in terms of specs as usual, so the only thing remaining is to get one for a review to check out the performance side as well.
