Device & Specs

Let's face it, the iPad has a powerhouse of a processor that the Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus can't quite keep up with. While that's true, there isn't much in the way of additional features, like the Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus' IR blaster to control TVs and the like, so if that's important to you, take a second look.

Screen

The latest iPad has hands-down the best screen on a tablet by far, with a near HDTV quality color gamut, and a massive near-retina display. The Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus has a tiny 7 inch screen.

Battery

Strangely enough, both tablets have very similar battery capacities, namely because the iPad requires a lot more juice to run. That being said, it does not have the screen brightness issues the Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus has, so you can potentially squeeze more battery life out of the iPad.

eReader

As an eReader, the Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus is far easier to hold as it not only is lighter and smaller, but it also does not heat up as much.

Internet

Because the Apple iPad has access to the App Store, it has a much broader access to apps and content than does the Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus, but after a certain point, personal tastes matter more, as Android has more of the "grey area" apps than does the Apple App Store. It's up to you, but check out some of the apps online first to see what you might like.
