Apple iPad 3rd Gen

Device & Specs

From a hardware standpoint, the iPad absolutely blows the HTC EVO View 4G away in just about every category: screen, CPU, GPU, RAM, and battery life. While this is true, the iPad will cost you a hefty premium compared to the HTC EVO View 4G, and it is also far heavier and less portable, but performance has to be paid for, and the screen on the new iPad is absolutely spectacular.

Screen

The screen of the iPad is far above and beyond anything that a tablet running any iteration of Android has ever fielded at the time of publish of this article, and the HTC EVO View 4G doesn't even come close.

Battery

While neither battery is spectacular, the iPad's battery technically lasts longer. Don't be misled, however, as it takes forever (okay, maybe 8+ hours) to charge fully, whereas the HTC EVO View 4G can be fully charged in under 2 hours.

eReader

Both tablets handle reading eBooks well, but the HTC EVO View 4G is far easier to hold for long periods of time without fatigue.

Internet

The iPad has access to the App store, which has far more apps than does the Play Store, and is far more popular with the best app designers, so the iPad has far more internet features that are well-polished. About the only thing that the HTC EVO View 4G has over the iPad is the fact that it can be used as a rudimentary media server.
