Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 7.0 vs Dell Venue 7 vs Google Nexus 7:Winner is........................

Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 7.0                                                                                                                      The new GALAXY Tab 3 puts your comfort at the forefront. It improves on each and every aspect of its predecessor to make sure you enjoy your new tab even more. The Samsung Galaxy Tab 3's light, comfortable design, myriad useful features, and bright colorful screen makes the 8-incher one of the best small tablets on the market. The Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 7.0 also caters to your business needs. The presence of two cameras also helps in this matter as the back camera can be used for documenting business events and meetings whereas the front camera allows for collaboration through video chat, taking shots of others or even perfectly-framed photos of yourself. Equipped with a 1.2 GHZ Dual Core Processor, it can handle just about anything you ask it to do ? smoothly, quickly and expertly. This tablet comes installed with the Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean operating system, contains a 1.2 GHz dual-core processor, and has a 7-inch display with 1024x600 resolution, a 1.3-megapixel front-facing camera, and a 3-megapixel rear-facing camera. It is also equipped with an IR blaster so it will work as a universal remote on both your TV and cable box. The Galaxy Tab 3 offers 8 GB of onboard memory and features a microSD card slot that allows you to add up to 64 GB of additional memory (microSD card sold separately). The tablet measures 7.4 by 4.37 by 0.39 inches (H x W x D) and weighs 0.67 pounds including the battery. The Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 7.0 will last for almost dead-on nine hours. That’s good performance for a small tablet.
But,All of this would be forgivable if the Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 7.0 was one of the cheaper 7-inch tablets on the market, but it isn't.A price of $300 is a lot for any small tablet, and some features like Smart Stay and Watch On’s search don’t work as well as intended.
THE BOTTOM LINE The Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 7.0 is a deeply average tablet that's been way over-priced by Samsung.It costs a bit more than we'd like, but the Galaxy Tab 3 is Samsung’s best non-Note tablet yet. But battery life, on the other hand, counts for a lot. If you need battery life more than anything then this is your tablet.                                                                                                                                 Price:$299                                                                                                                                                 VS                                                                                                                                                             Dell Venue 7                                                                                                                                               Dell Venue 7inch tablet running Android 4.2.2 Jellybean and upgradeable to Kit-Kat on a 2 GHz Intel Atom Z2760 processor with 16 GB internal memory.The Dell Venue 7 starts at $149 and features a pure Android 4.2.2 operating system. It's lightweight, houses a microSD card expansion, and performs smoothly.The 7-inch IPS LCD brings the 1,280-by-800 resolution and front-facing camera of the Venue 8 to a slightly smaller panel, and it's slightly sharper as a result at 215 pixels per inch. It beats Asus's and Hisense's offerings. Amazon's Kindle Fire HD 7" has the same resolution, but has better color saturation and better viewing angles than the Venue 7. The Nook HD has a 1,440-by-900 display, beating both of these tablets in the high-res arms race.The Dell Venue 7 lasted for 6 hours and 20 minutes on the LAPTOP Battery Test (Web surfing via Wi-Fi), which is longer than the Sero 7 Pro (6:09), but an hour less than the 7:22 category average and more than three hours less than the MeMO Pad HD 7's epic battery life of 9 hours and 40 minutes.
But, Larger games take a while to load, the touch screen is sometimes unresponsive, and battery life only lasts about a day.
The bottom line: The Dell Venue 7 offers a simple design and smooth performance for the right price, but the Nexus 7 is a significant upgrade for not much more.                                                                         Specifications

With an attractive price, great build and speedy software updates direct from Google, it was the pure Android experience many craved so dearly.The Nexus 7 features a sharp screen, a comfortable design, and great battery life at a low starting price.It’s slicker, faster and sleeker than any other 7-inch tablet on the market right now, and only the rear facing camera really lets it down.The battery life is really impressive, and the sheer diversity on offer, be it through the uprated CPU, screen, or GPU, mean that we struggled to put it down at times. Android 4.2 adds some welcome and useful features.
But, Android still needs more tablet-optimized apps, newer games have frame rate issues, and HSPA+ speeds seem particularly location-dependent.
The bottom line: With its excellent design, useful software features, and low starting price, the Nexus 7 is the cheapest way to experience the best that the Android OS has to offer.                                                                                                                                                                                                                               Specifications

Samsung Ativ Tab vs Microsoft Surface RT vs Apple iPad 4:Which is better?

Samsung Ativ Tab                                                                                                                                       The Samsung Ativ Tab is undeniably a high-end tablet, and not just because of the price tag. With solid specs and a sleek, lightweight build, it ticks a lot of boxes before you even start using it. Its light weight means the Samsung Ativ Tab is very comfortable to hold for long periods, without feeling off-puttingly light. The curved edges also aid in the comfort stakes, and there's enough grip to it that there's no fear of it slipping out of your hands.While Samsung is one of the most prolific manufacturers of Android tablets, the company has no intention on sleeping on the opportunities afforded by the Windows RT and Windows 8 operating systems. The Samsung Ativ Tab's 10.1-inch 1366 x 768 display may only have a 155ppi, but in use it's not too bad - jaggies are noticeable but not distracting. It also pips the Microsoft Surface, which has the same resolution but a slightly bigger 10.6-inch screen, leading to a 148ppi. Rounding out the package there's a 5 megapixel main camera capable of shooting 720p video, along with a 1.9 megapixel front-facing one.Neither is particularly impressive, but they should be more than adequate for a tablet, because, after all, who even uses a tablet to take photos? The main camera is also substantially better than the 1.2 megapixel offering on the Microsoft Surface.
Samsung is currently planning three different Windows tablets: the Windows RT, Wi-Fi-only, Ativ Tab; and two full Windows 8 devices: the Ativ Smart PC and Ativ Smart PC Pro. The latter two will be 4G LTE compatible; however, only the Ativ Smart PC (not the Pro) has been confirmed for use on AT&T's 4G LTE network.                                                                                                                                       Specifications

The tablet feels strong and well-built, runs Office 2013, and includes rich video and music services. Its keyboard cover accessories are the best ways to type on a tablet, period.
A common misconception is that the traditional desktop isn't available in Windows RT, but that's not true; it's accessed via the desktop tile on the Start screen, but its relevance is severely diminished.
As Windows RT can't run traditional programs you need to use the old style Windows Explorer less, but it's still on hand for browsing file systems, USB sticks, organising folders and more.
The 'charm' bar to the right also includes search and share buttons and these are threaded through every part of the OS, from files to settings, to the information held within apps.Another triumph is the on-screen keyboard, which is large, sensitive and easy to use. It's not as smart as some third-party keyboards on Android, but we typed with two hands quickly and accurately and the extra inch of screen space made it much easier to use than its iOS counterpart.
We had a few problems with the large keyboard panel blocking information we needed, but the icon to show or hide the keyboard is always on hand in the bottom-right corner of the desktop.
As we've already mentioned, performance is a slightly mixed bag. The system is always responsive, with silky smooth transitions and snappy navigation.
However, we found that some apps were slow to load, with lingering splash screens. What's more, 1080p playback was a few frames per second short of perfect.
While we wouldn't say that the Tegra 3 chip performed appallingly, there's certainly no headroom, and it seems to be the graphics core that struggled most.
Multitasking apps never missed a beat, but it was loading the graphically-intensive apps and movies that showed the biggest strain on the processor.
Even some basic games ran at a noticeably low frame rate, so it seems that Windows RT might need some optimisation.                                                                                                                                      Battery life:
Our experience of the battery life has bemused us somewhat. We started off a day with the Surface RT at 100 percent and only used the tablet intensely for around an hour and a half while shooting our video review. We then used the Surface RT in the evening for around 30 minutes web browsing. The next morning, however, the Surface RT needed the mains charger to switch on so the battery had full depleted overnight. Strange considering Microsoft touts 7-15 days idle life.                                                            But, The tablet's performance can be sluggish, its Windows Store is a ghost town, Metro takes getting used to, and the Desktop interface feels clunky and useless.
The bottom line: If you're an early adopter willing to forget everything you know about navigating a computer, the Surface tablet could replace your laptop. Everyone else: wait for more apps.                                                                                                                                                                                              Specifications

Improved worldwide cellular compatibility makes the LTE model a more appealing proposition. And the iOS App Store remains best in class, with the widest selection.The iPad range remains among the best in class for battery life considering their size and weight, providing a genuine 10hrs use between charges and lasting for weeks in standby.Gaming tends to cause the biggest drain on battery life but you’ll still get 6-7 hours solid play from even the most demanding 3D titles.
But, The fourth-gen iPad is otherwise identical to its recent predecessor -- same size, weight, and Retina screen. It's heavy to hold in one hand, and most older accessories won't work without investing in a pricey Lightning adapter.
The bottom line: The latest iPad adds several tweaks and improvements to secure its position at the top of the tablet heap. It's better all around, but third-gen owners need not apply.                                                                                                                                                                                                                       Specifications

Lenovo Yoga Tablet 10 vs Apple iPad Air vs Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1:Best fit for use is......................

Lenovo Yoga Tablet 10                                                                                                                             The Lenovo Yoga Tablet 10’s superslim, unique design makes it easy to hold.The Lenovo Yoga Tablet 10 hardware is actually not bad for its price, and the faux-metal finish makes it feel even nicer. The glass display and body give it a halfway decent feel.The Yoga Tablet is running Android 4.2 Jelly Bean with a few modifications.The general style of Android has been changed including fonts, buttons etc and while the default looks a bit on the childish side, there are a couple of better themes to choose from.The opposite side of the power button is the 3.5mm headset jack, and above that is the volume button and a small microphone.When the device is facing you in landscape orientation, you'll also notice there are two front-facing speakers. If you purchase the tablet, you will have already noticed the Dolby logo on the box.In Lenovo's own words, the Yoga Tablet 10 has "epic battery life" and at a quoted 18 hours, it sounds like this may be the case. This figure is gained with a pretty varied usage though, rather than a more traditional video playback test – 12 hours are spent reading an eBook.It’s also only $300.
But, The tablet’s low-resolution screen looks fuzzy and oversaturated, and the heavily modified operating system is downright ugly.
The bottom line: Though it feels well-built and has a handy kickstand, the Lenovo Yoga Tablet’s poor performance makes it hard to justify even the low cost.                                                                        Specifications

The new iPad slots right in where its predecessor left off, priced at $499 for a lowly 16GB, $599 for 32GB, $699 for 64GB, and $799 for the maximum 128GB configuration. The iPad Air delivers more performance and comparable battery life in an attractive and impossibly thin-and-light package. An improved front-facing camera makes FaceTiming look better, and the Retina Display still looks great.
But, The Touch ID fingerprint scanner, introduced on the iPhone 5S, is sadly absent here, meaning you’ll still have to type in a passcode with every unlock and a password with every purchase. Starting at $499 for 16GB, it’s still expensive compared with the competition.                                                                              Performance:                                                                                                                                               The iPad Air shares the same processor with Apple’s flagship phone, albeit with a slight bump in clock speed. While the 5S runs at 1.3GHz the Air runs at 1.39GHz. It can achieve this because of the increased space and improved heat dissipation of the Air compared to the much smaller iPhone 5S.
Indeed, before we go into the detail about performance it’s worth noting that the iPad Air manages to keep its cool with consummate ease. Even when running intensive 3D games and apps for hours it barely breaks a sweat and, therefore, neither do your hands.
In practice, the iPad Air is blisteringly fast. Apps open instantly and games like Infinity Blade 3 look sumptuous and run smoothly. The benefits of having a SoC means that the GPU can be used to tackle compute tasks, which makes video editing and compute intensive apps, like AutoCAD, show no hint of slowdown.
The iPad Air performs 59% faster than the iPad 4 in the 3D Mark Ice Storm Unlimited CPU and GPU test and 91% faster in Geekbench 3 tests. The Peacekeeper browser test, which assesses web browsing performance, shows that the Air trounces its predecessor by being more than twice as fast. It's also faster than the stonking Snapdragon 800 processor on the likes of the Sony Xperia Z Ultra and Google Nexus 5. We're talking matter of degrees here, but the difference is there all the same.
Battery life:                                                                                                                                                   Battery life on the iPad Air is quoted at "Up to 10 hours of surfing the web on Wi-Fi, watching video, or listening to music". We would say that's actually not a bad estimate, although the drain was closer to 2% every 10 minutes in general use, which equates to around nine hours' use.
Standby time is much, much better though. We found that we could stick the iPad Air in a bag, taking it out for the commute and messing about with on the sofa at home, for at least three days before it began to get low on battery.
In fact, the only real task that killed it was connecting to our amplifier via Wi-Fi while simultaneously streaming music to the same device through Bluetooth. It's doing things like this that make you realise that this is the kind of thing that we envisaged at the turn of the century, a tablet that has the brains and connectivity to do all the tasks we could want.In terms of connectivity, we've already mentioned the excellent Wi-Fi performance (in terms of distance from router, rather than improved speed) through the Multiple In, Multiple Out (MIMO) technology.
4G bands are now covered throughout the globe, and low power Bluetooth is also on board as well, making it an incredibly well-connected device.
The bottom line: Functionally, the iPad Air is nearly identical to last year’s model, offering only faster performance and better video chatting. But factor in design and aesthetics, and the iPad Air is on another planet. It’s the best full-size consumer tablet on the market.                                                                         Specifications

Samsung's S Pen stylus feels perfectly at home with this stunning screen, turning the tablet into a sketchpad, a notebook, a virtual scrapbook, and much more beside.The Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 sports a proven, sensible design, a bevy of useful features, and fast performance. The S Pen Stylus is a unique addition.The 2014 Note 10.1 has a non-removable 8,220mAh battery. That's significantly larger than the 7,000mAh battery of the last model, but it's needed because of the higher-resolution screen.
To give the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 more of a chance against its competitors, we turned off most of the Samsung extras, such as the eye-monitoring Smart Stay before setting the tablet to play a looped SD-quality video. It lasts for a fairly impressive 12 hours of video playback.
But, Only a limited number of apps make full use of the S Pen and some of the ones that do can be buggy and confusing. Some S Pen features aren't enabled by default and others don't work properly.
The bottom line: The Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 is the best Samsung tablet yet. If you can get over its somewhat high price, it's a sound Android tablet investment.                                                                         Specifications

Everything has a sort of knife-edge sharpness that makes you not want to look away. The ATIV Book 9 Plus lasted 7 hours and 54 minutes on a charge.
But, A bit heavier than other ultraportables; Some bloatware .Costs several hundred more than we’d prefer; shrunken HDMI port; doesn’t convert to a tablet form -- strictly a laptop.
The bottom line: Samsung's ATIV Book 9 Plus is a gorgeous, aluminum-clad ultraportable with a vibrant quad-HD touch screen and fairly strong battery life. If you’re just looking for an all-around excellently made Windows touch ultrabook and don’t mind that it's on the expensive side (and doesn’t convert to a tablet), the improved Samsung Ativ Book 9 Plus is worth the investment.                                                              Specifications

From its sleek build to its super sharp touchscreen and glowing keyboard, this laptop looks and feels futuristic. The Acer Aspire S7 is a premium-looking ultrabook, with great performance, strong battery life, and a high-res touch screen. Acer's leading laptop measures 12.72 x 8.78 x 0.51 inches (W x D x H) and weighs 2.87 pounds, making it one of the lightest 13.3-inch laptops We really liked the inclusion of the Intel Core i7-3517U processor, 13.3-inch Multi-touch FHD Acer CineCrystal LCD, and 256GB of storage. The battery life with this device is great and the fact that it's only 2.9lbs means that we'll be rocking this baby for a while.
But, That super HD display is a bit of a double-edged sword overall. For one, only the fastest, most expensive wireless internet connections can handily stream media at 1440p. The expensive S7 is priced well beyond most other touch-screen Windows 8 laptops. The touch pad is not as responsive as it should be.
The bottom line:  The Aspire S7 for its cutting edge build, fine typing experience and premium specs.  One of the few standout products from the first wave of Windows 8 laptops, the Acer Aspire S7 proves that Apple does not have a monopoly on great design.                                                                                                 Specifications

In our test, in which we streamed the live BBC News channel feed on iPlayer over a wireless network, the laptop lasted for nine hours. That's significantly better than the 11-inch MacBook Air's 7 hours 15 minutes, and a substantial improvement over the 2012 MacBook Air's 5.5 hours.
Since switching to solid state storage off the shelf with the late 2010 update, the MacBook Air has been known for its good battery life. But with the Haswell processors in place, it's absolutely stunning. At last, you can use your notebook all day long on a single charge.
But, Newer features such as touch screens and higher-resolution displays are still missing. The ultrabook competition is catching up, in terms of design.
The bottom line: Apple keeps the latest MacBook Air updates on the inside, but greatly improved battery life and a lower starting price make up for a lack of flashy design changes.                                                                                                                                                                                                                               Specifications

Dell Venue 10 7000 vs Sony Xperia Z4 Tablet vs Microsoft Surface 3:Best performer is...........................

Dell Venue 10 7000                                                                                                                                  The Dell Venue 10 7000 is an excellent Android tablet for everything from media consumption to light office work.The Dell Venue 10 7000 is a sleek tablet-hybrid with a sturdy Bluetooth keyboard. Performance is swift and smooth, and it runs on the Android Lollipop 5.0 operating system. It also features a stunningly sharp screen and nifty depth-sensing cameras. The Venue 10 7000's 10.5-inch, 2560 x 1600 OLED screen is a whirlwind of vivid colors, but it's muted by less-than-ideal brightness. Its high-res display features deep, saturated colors that look more like a glossy magazine page than a traditional monitor. But when you tilt the screen -- which causes the background to shift in a parallax motion -- you're reminded that it's much more than a simple, static viewing experience. Dell puts the generic, uninspired designs of the past in the rearview mirror. Cheap, thick plastic construction has been replaced by sleek metal lines and bold design choices like the cylindrical bulge on one end—it's not dissimilar to Lenovo's Yoga Tablet 10, but it's still refreshing in the grand scheme of tablet design. The tablet comes with a 10.50-inch display with a resolution of 1600 pixels by 2560 pixels. The Dell Venue 10 7000 is powered by 2.3GHz quad-core Intel Atom Z3580 processor and it comes with 2GB of RAM. The tablet packs 16GB of internal storage that can be expanded via a microSD card. As far as the cameras are concerned, the Dell Venue 10 7000 packs a 8-megapixel primary camera on the rear and a 2-megapixel front shooter for selfies. The Dell Venue 10 7000 runs Android 5.0 and is powered by a 7000mAh non removable battery. Connectivity options include Wi-Fi, Bluetooth. Sensors on the tablet include Proximity sensor, Ambient light sensor, Accelerometer, and Gyroscope. The device comes a multimedia features stereo Speakers, MP4, MP3 and Full HD Supported Player and Google Play, Facebook, Google+, twitter, HTML, FM radio, Image and video viewer and editor and Microsoft Office document viewer and editor, SMS, MMS, Emails, I mail, Push mail and threading view Text input. This device is a Li-ion Non Removeable 7000 mAh battery. It is provide the talk time about 8 hours videos watching, web browsing.
but,Trying to multitask on the Venue 10 is largely an exercise in futility. You'll often find yourself reloading every app when switching between them, and that's simply not acceptable for a mobile work machine.It's a bit heavy and expensive. The small keyboard can feel cramped to type on.
THE BOTTOM LINE The Dell Venue 10 7000 is dangerously close to the price point of excellent laptops, like the Dell XPS 13. And it's well past the premium I'd be comfortable with shelling out for a Chromebook.The refined build quality and slick performance of the Dell Venue 10 7000 make it one of the finest Android tablet-hybrids around.                                                                                                     Price:$499 to $679
VS                                                                                                                                                             Sony Xperia Z4 Tablet                                                                                                                                The Xperia Z4 Tablet runs the latest version of Google’s mobile operating system, Android 5.0.2 Lollipop. This means you’re treated to the new Material design and all of the layout tweaks that come with it.The Sony Xperia Z4's slim, waterproof design is simultaneously sleek and solid. Running the latest version of Android, it features a colorful user-friendly overlay. It has a sharp HD screen, and its performance is fast and smooth. The 64-bit octa-core processor clocked at 2GHz and 3GB of RAM combine to excellent effect, making the Xperia Z4 Tablet very powerful indeed. This is reflected by our benchmark results.
It scored 4,500 in the Geekbench 3 multi-core speed test, placing it and the iPad Air 2 (4,509) on an even keel. It’s streets ahead of Android rivals, leaving the Samsung Galaxy Tab S 10.5 (2,669) in the dust.
The Xperia performs even better in the graphics department, scoring a sublime 24,283 in the 3DMark Ice Storm Unlimited test. That’s a terrific result. Even the iPad Air 2 (21,797) can’t keep up, with the Samsung Galaxy Tab S 10.5 (13,500) again way behind.
However, benchmarks aren’t everything. Fortunately, the Xperia’s performance is generally excellent. It blitzes through 3D games, including Real Racing 3, Asphalt 8 and Dead Trigger 2, delivering a flawless experience. Similarly, movies and videos play smoothly, without a hint of lag.
On occasion, we did find that sound and videos sometimes stuttered when rotating the screen, and we’re not sure why. However, it seems to happen on an irregular basis, and is so fleeting that few users will actually be bothered by it.Sony claims you'll get 17 hours of video playback from the Z4, and from our tests, that's not too far from the truth. The Z4 managed almost 15 hours of continuous video while syncing Twitter every 10 minutes over WiFi. That's pretty damn impressive given the battery is exactly the same size as last year's model, and the same test drained the Z2 in just eight hours.
The storage options aren't overly generous, and it would be nice if Sony offered a 64GB version; microSD storage is handy, but files on there don't perform as well as on the main memory. The optional Bluetooth keyboard is cramped to type on and has a frail plastic build.
THE BOTTOM LINE For novice Android users with a desire to greatly personalize their experience, the Sony Xperia Z4 is a beautifully constructed tablet with high-end specs that won't disappoint.                       Key Features: 10.1-inch, 2,560 x 1,600 IPS display; Android Lollipop; Snapdragon 810 processor; 3GB RAM; 6,000mAh battery; 393g; 8.1-megapixel rear camera; NFC; Bluetooth 4.1

VS                                                                                                                                                           Microsoft Surface 3                                                                                                                                 The Surface 3 is a thinner, lighter, smaller and cheaper version of theSurface Pro 3. It has a 10.8-inch screen and weighs just 887g with the keyboard attached (622g without). The 10.8-inch display makes the Surface 3 wider than 10.1-inch tablets, so the keyboard is bigger than most. This allows Microsoft to use large keys on the Type Cover. Those keys are wonderful and it's possible to type as fast as on any laptop keyboard. The keys have just the right amount of travel and the tactile feedback is first rate.
The top row of keys have tablet control keys along with some standard Windows keys -- Home, End, PrtScn, and others. They also serve as Fn-1 - Fn-12.
There is a small trackpad on the Type Cover that works well, but due to the small size I usually just tap the touch display. Still it's nice to have the trackpad available.
The new Surface 3 costs less than the Pro version, but trickles down much of the design and materials of its more expensive sibling. This budget model finally runs the full version of Windows. The keyboard cover remains the best way to transform a slate into a laptop.                                                                                 The Surface 3's IPS panel provides excellent viewing angles which means you won't have to crane your neck when leaning over to watch video or other content with a friend.
Even at a smaller 10.8-inches in size, its 1,920 x 1,200 pixel-resolution allowed me to comfortably fit two screens side-by-side, making it great for getting productive on the go.
The display supports full 10-point multi-touch, which I found fast and responsive - although it's easier to pick out toolbars and menus using the Surface Pen if you have scaling set to a low percentage in Windows.           The Surface 3's benchmark figures are higher than those generated by the Asus T100 Chi. In PCMark 8 Home test, its 1.6GHz Intel Atom x7-78700 proved 32% faster than the Z3775 in the Chi while beating it by 19% in Cinebench 11.5's Multi-Core CPU test and 48% in its GPU test.
If that was something of a fair fight, things become predictably one-sided when comparing the Surface 3 to the Surface Pro 3, which saw its Core i5-4200U chip hammer the Surface 3's Atom chip in Cinebench 11.5's CPU test, producing a 196% bigger number. The Surface Pro 3 also scored higher in PCMark 8's Home test by 26%, while graphics came on top by 75% on Cinebench 11.5's GPU test.                               The Surface 3's 13-watt micro USB charger stretches from to nothing fully-charged in around 2.5 hours and once juiced up can go for a long time due to the efficiency of the 1.6GHz Intel Atom x7-78700. It packs a 27Wh battery, just short of the 30Wh battery in the T100 Chi - and PCMark 8's battery tests, which simulates real-world applications and loops video, produced similar scores as a result.
The high-end Surface 3 finds itself in an unusual position. Compared to the entry-level model, you get 4GB of RAM (instead of 2GB) and 128GB of storage (compared to 64GB) for $121 more. It means you'll be able to store more data on it while enjoying slightly less slowdown when multitasking, but the benchmarks show that it's nowhere near as powerful as the Surface Pro 3 - so its capabilities are still relatively limited.
But,Trading down to a low-power processor means this isn't a full-time PC. The clever keyboard case is still sold separately, and costs a lot compared to the base hardware. The kickstand has only three preset angles.
THE BOTTOM LINE The budget-priced Surface 3 is a solid tablet that finally runs the real version of Windows, but it would be a much better value if the must-have keyboard cover was included.                     Key Features: 10.8-inch, 1,920 x 1,280 display; 662g; 1.6GHz Intel Atom processor; Bluetooth 4.0; 802.11ac Wi-Fi; USB 3.0; Mini DisplayPort; microSD; 3.5-megapixel front camera; 8.0-megapixel camera

Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 vs Lenovo Yoga Tab 3 Pro vs Microsoft Surface 3:Hot cake is.......................

Samsung Galaxy Tab S2                                                                                                                               High-end Android tablets are becoming few and far between, indicating to us that the tablet segment in general has been seeing a slowdown. Most consumers seem to be more gravitated to either picking up a low-cost laptop hybrid, or the many inexpensive tablets that pack reasonable value for the money. On that note, it’s no surprise to us that many companies have stopped production and development for high-end tablets on the Android side. And then there’s Samsung!The Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 has bright and vividly colorful screen. Its rail-thin design is comfortable and ultracompact. It comes with 32GB of storage, a microSD card expansion slot and fingerprint scanner. Battery life is long.
Unlike previous models, there's no IR blaster.                                                                                            Design
The Galaxy Tab S2 feels nicer to hold in two hands than the Samsung Galaxy Tab S 10.5 and its sibling, the Galaxy Tab 8.4. In fact, it's now light enough to comfortably clutch in one hand.
The Samsung Tab S2 is lighter in part because it's backed by a soft-touch plastic cover instead of an aluminium shell. Metal edges outline the tablet instead of a plastic frame this time.
The entire device may not be metal, but it does feel smooth. It's better than the dimpled plastic of the Samsung Galaxy Tab S, yet remains just as grippy.
Two small, springy buttons are embedded into the back of the Tab S2, but they're meant for clipping a cover onto the tablet and aren't releases to pop off the back. It's all sealed shut.
There is, however, a microSD card slot on the frame to optionally boost the 32GB and 64GB configurations with an additional 128GB of expandable storage.
Alongside this same rail are a solid-feeling power button and volume rocker. Stereo speakers, a headphone jack and an off-center micro USB port line the bottom of the tablet.
The Tab S2 has a physical, fingerprint-sensing home button in front with the usual oval shape, and two capacitive buttons on either side. These keys light up by default every time the display is touched.
The beams of light are a bit distracting when scrolling and reading text near the bottom of the screen, and turning them off in settings doesn't help orient your fingers in the dark. This wider tablet isn't like a narrower phone, where you know the exact location of these keys.
The latest Galaxy Tab comes in three colors: Black, White and Gold. Gone are the fancy names like Dazzling White and Titanium Bronze, reflecting Samsung's minimalist design with this year's ultra-thin tablet.                 Display:
A tablet is all about the display and we've seen some unusual flip-flopping in resolutions over the past few years. With the 2012 Nexus 10 (which is made by Samsung) plopping out a 2560 x 1600 pixel display and the original Samsung Galaxy Tab S following suit, the Tab S2 now steps down to 2048 x 1536 pixels (264ppi density).That's the same resolution as we saw on the 2014 Nexus 9 tablet and it's the same as the iPad Air 2, which is the exact same size at 9.7-inches too. The shift from higher resolutions might be partly due to the shift in aspect ratio from 16:9 (or 16:10) to 4:3, or it could simply be that the returns for that resolution weren't hugely apparent.However, the Tab S2 is equipped with an AMOLED display whereas most competitors offer LCD. Samsung is known for AMOLED and has enjoyed great results on its Galaxy smartphones and Note tablets with this technology. On the Tab S2, you're again rewarded with great contrast, lots of punch in visuals, and deep, rich colours that are typical of such a panel.          You might notice that the richness makes some content look a little dark so you have to bump up the brightness to get best out of movies and videos. We found the colours a little overwrought in the opening scenes when watching Mockingjay, for example, but the deep blacks and brilliant blues set up Gravity nicely. On the flipside, some games are incredibly rich, making us wish we could dial it down a little for a more natural view. AMOLED can also struggle to produce clean and bright whites as a result, something that Samsung has worked hard to improve on recent devices - but there's a hint of cool blue white here.                                   The thing you will notice, however, is that on this size of display some of Android's apps don't scale as well as they should. You'll find softness becomes apparent in some games, for example, or some of the graphic elements in apps don't look as sharp as they do on your smartphone, phablet or smaller tablet. Take Real Racing 3 as an example: it looks blocky, so visually it's not as pleasant as on smaller or even 16:9 tablets with less display height. If that's a factor for you, the smaller 8-inch Tab S2 model might be the better choice. The display aspect also means the Tab S2 works a little better in portrait orientation than 16:9 devices, making for a better reading experience, whether that's on the included Flipboard-based Briefing newsreader, or when using something like the Kindle app. On the flip side, you'll have a lot of empty space top and bottom when watching movies in landscape - especially if they are shot in the cinematic 21:9 aspect ratio.
 Hardware
The Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 houses an octa-core Exynos 5433 chipset, comprised of a 1.9GHz and 1.3GHz quad-core CPU. It also has 32GB of internal storage and a microSD card expansion slot that's expandable up to 128GB. The Samsung website lists a 64GB version, but only the 32GB model is available for purchase; Samsung hasn't released details on when and if the 64GB one be available.
Other features include Bluetooth 4.1 with low-energy function (BLE) and Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac MIMO -- which is faster than regular Wi-Fi.
SOFTWARE
The Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 runs the latest version of Android with the scaled-down version of TouchWiz. It's a similar software experience to what we see on the Note 5 and latest Galaxy S6 devices.
There are not too many apps loaded out of the box, but since this is an AT&T LTE model you get plenty of bloatware from this US carrier. AT&T apps include myAT&T, AT&T AllAccess, AT&T Locker, Device Help, AT&T FamilyMap, AT&T Ready2Go, YP, WildTangent Games, and AT&T Messages. Given the recent DIRECTV deal, you will also find a DIRECTV app installed on the Tab S2.
Samsung apps include Galaxy Apps, Hancom Office Viewer, Memo, Samsung Milk Music, SideSync, and Smart Manager. You will also find several Google apps, but these have been reduced by Google so loading up your preferred Google apps is up to your own preferences in many cases.
One of the reasons to pick up a Samsung tablet is to be able to use a couple apps at the same time in a side-by-side format. As you can see in a couple of screenshots in my gallery, many apps look absolutely terrible in this format and neither app ends up being useful.
The Samsung Galaxy Tab S2's brilliant screen, plentiful storage capacity and slender build make it a great tablet for everyday use at home or on the go.                                                                                           Price ;$347.99
VS                                                                                                                                                         Lenovo Yoga Tab 3 Pro                                                                                                                             The YOGA Tab 3 Pro’s QHD display is perfect for immersive gaming and rich, detailed video. It also delivers crisp, bright visuals for a great viewing experience under all angles and ambient lights.The Lenovo Yoga Tab 3 Pro has a built-in pico projector and an ergonomic design with a kickstand. Performance and gaming is fast. Screen is sharp and speakers are loud. Battery life is long.
Performance
The tablet is powered by a quad-core Intel Atom x5-Z8500 processor that clocks in at 2.24GHz, and its performance is in line with other high-end tablets.The 10.1-inch screen delivers a very impressive 2,560 by 1,600 pixels - that's 299ppi. Colours are sharp and bright, and both text and video look great.                     The button configuration is unconventional. As already noted, the power button and an on/off button for the projector sit at opposite ends of the tube that supports the stand. The projector button is marked as such, but there's no tactile difference between the buttons and we constantly got them confused. The Micro-USB charging slot and volume rocker are on one short edge, with the headset jack on the other.
A covered slot under the hinge accommodates the MicroSD and Micro-SIM slots (the latter only if you have chosen the LTE model, of course).
The CPU’s paired with 2GB of DDR3 RAM, which puts it behind similarly priced Android competitors. The Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 comes with a more robust 3GB of RAM.
The Yoga Tab 3 Pro performed reasonably well when benchmarked, despite its lower memory. The tablet scored 48,867 on Antutu and ran in with a 3,269 multi-core Geekbench score. On the gaming-focused 3DMark Ice Storm Unlimited test the Yoga Tab 3 Pro scored 25,774.
This puts it roughly on a par with most flagship tablets. By comparison the Galaxy Tab S2 (8-inch) scored 51,815 on Antutu, 4,206 on Geekbench 3 and 19,306 on Ice Storm Unlimited.
The Tab 3 Pro performs admirably with real-world use. Videos and music stream seamlessly and games like Riptide GP2, Baldur’s Gate Enhanced Edition and Shadowrun Returns run chug free.
The only minor performance issue I noticed was that, on occasion, the tablet would stutter slightly when navigating between windows – though this happened very rarely and never severely slowed down the device. Battery life
Lenovo has packed the Yoga Tab 3 Pro out with a huge 10,200mAh battery, which is evidently another area in which that chunky hinge comes in handy.
To place that in context, the iPad Air 2 comes with a 7,340mAh battery, and theSony Xperia Z4 Tablet has a 6,000mAh battery.
It's arguable that such a sizeable battery is essential to the Yoga Tab 3 Pro. With power-hungry components like a 10-inch QHD display and a pico projector, this is a tablet that's going to be used for watching a lot of high-definition TV shows and films.                                                                                                               Lenovo claims its tablet is good for 18 hours of battery life. Naturally, this depends on what you're using it for, but in general usage I wouldn't dispute that claim.
When it comes to more intensive usage, though, things are perhaps a little less impressive.                             I ran the Yoga Tab 3 Pro’s  usual battery test, which involves running a 90 minute 720p video with the screen brightness cranked right up. The result was that the battery level dropped to 85%.That's better than rivals such as the Sony Xperia Z4 Tablet (79%) and theSamsung Galaxy Tab S2 (84%), but not by a massive amount.
As for the Yoga Tab 3 Pro's projector, I found that streaming a 50-minute 1080p Netflix show sapped 14% of its battery. That suggests you could get through half a dozen films in between charges, which is pretty good going.
But, It's a bit heavy and its cylindrical spine makes it awkward to hold in landscape orientation.
THE BOTTOM LINE The Lenovo Yoga Tab 3 Pro is the best Android tablet for watching video. Either alone or, thanks to its built-in projector, with a large group of friends.                                                           Key Features: In-built projector; Intel Atom processor; Adjustable stand; 10.1-inch QHD display; 10,200mAh non-removable battery
Manufacturer: Lenovo                                                                                                                                 Price:$499:99
VS                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                             Microsoft Surface 3                                                                                                                                     The Surface 3 is a thinner, lighter, smaller and cheaper version of theSurface Pro 3. It has a 10.8-inch screen and weighs just 887g with the keyboard attached (622g without). The 10.8-inch display makes the Surface 3 wider than 10.1-inch tablets, so the keyboard is bigger than most. This allows Microsoft to use large keys on the Type Cover. Those keys are wonderful and it's possible to type as fast as on any laptop keyboard. The keys have just the right amount of travel and the tactile feedback is first rate.
The top row of keys have tablet control keys along with some standard Windows keys -- Home, End, PrtScn, and others. They also serve as Fn-1 - Fn-12.
There is a small trackpad on the Type Cover that works well, but due to the small size I usually just tap the touch display. Still it's nice to have the trackpad available.
The new Surface 3 costs less than the Pro version, but trickles down much of the design and materials of its more expensive sibling. This budget model finally runs the full version of Windows. The keyboard cover remains the best way to transform a slate into a laptop.                                                                                 The Surface 3's IPS panel provides excellent viewing angles which means you won't have to crane your neck when leaning over to watch video or other content with a friend.
Even at a smaller 10.8-inches in size, its 1,920 x 1,200 pixel-resolution allowed me to comfortably fit two screens side-by-side, making it great for getting productive on the go.
The display supports full 10-point multi-touch, which I found fast and responsive - although it's easier to pick out toolbars and menus using the Surface Pen if you have scaling set to a low percentage in Windows.           The Surface 3's benchmark figures are higher than those generated by the Asus T100 Chi. In PCMark 8 Home test, its 1.6GHz Intel Atom x7-78700 proved 32% faster than the Z3775 in the Chi while beating it by 19% in Cinebench 11.5's Multi-Core CPU test and 48% in its GPU test.
If that was something of a fair fight, things become predictably one-sided when comparing the Surface 3 to the Surface Pro 3, which saw its Core i5-4200U chip hammer the Surface 3's Atom chip in Cinebench 11.5's CPU test, producing a 196% bigger number. The Surface Pro 3 also scored higher in PCMark 8's Home test by 26%, while graphics came on top by 75% on Cinebench 11.5's GPU test.                                   The Surface 3's 13-watt micro USB charger stretches from to nothing fully-charged in around 2.5 hours and once juiced up can go for a long time due to the efficiency of the 1.6GHz Intel Atom x7-78700. It packs a 27Wh battery, just short of the 30Wh battery in the T100 Chi - and PCMark 8's battery tests, which simulates real-world applications and loops video, produced similar scores as a result.
The high-end Surface 3 finds itself in an unusual position. Compared to the entry-level model, you get 4GB of RAM (instead of 2GB) and 128GB of storage (compared to 64GB) for $121 more. It means you'll be able to store more data on it while enjoying slightly less slowdown when multitasking, but the benchmarks show that it's nowhere near as powerful as the Surface Pro 3 - so its capabilities are still relatively limited.
But,Trading down to a low-power processor means this isn't a full-time PC. The clever keyboard case is still sold separately, and costs a lot compared to the base hardware. The kickstand has only three preset angles.
THE BOTTOM LINE The budget-priced Surface 3 is a solid tablet that finally runs the real version of Windows, but it would be a much better value if the must-have keyboard cover was included.                     Key Features: 10.8-inch, 1,920 x 1,280 display; 662g; 1.6GHz Intel Atom processor; Bluetooth 4.0; 802.11ac Wi-Fi; USB 3.0; Mini DisplayPort; microSD; 3.5-megapixel front camera; 8.0-megapixel camera

Samsung ATIV Smart PC vs Acer Iconia W510 vs Microsoft Surface Pro:Which is better?

Samsung ATIV Smart PC 500T
Samsung Ativ Smart PC is one of the best latest Laptop .It’s not just an ultra-thin tablet. It’s also a fully functioning PC. A revolutionary convertible design unites the power of a notebook with the convenience of tablet. The Samsung ATIV Smart PC 500T runs the programs you need on a Windows 8 operating system — in a sleek, lightweight form. A docking keyboard (sold separately), S Pen™ functionality (included with the tablet) and touch screen let you connect with your PC as never before. A most useful feature of the Ativ 500T is the Wacom digitiser pen that allows you to write and draw on the screen. We found it to be very effective in its operation, and it was also fun to use. Handwriting recognition was mostly accurate, although our messy writing sometimes misled the software — writing 'hello' often came up as 'hells', for example. The pen sits in a slot on the side of the tablet and is inconspicuous. It's a little tight and takes some effort to pull out, but the flipside of that is it won't end up slipping out on its own. So you can enjoy outstanding mobility and convenience for instant consumption on the go, including web-browsing, communication, video and gaming. 5-Finger Multi-Touch, Enjoy the full capabilities of the latest entertainment applications. Longer battery life and an Intel® Atom™ processor mean there’s no stopping the Samsung Samsung ATIV Smart PC 500T. SuperBright 11.6” LCD display produces the most vivid colours and sharpest images with 400nit brightness. At the top brightness setting, the screen is sharp and colors are vibrant, But simply add its full sized keyboard and touchpad and you have got the heavy-duty performance, compatibility and creative capability of a notebook.  It’s built on Intel’s Clover Trail platform and features a pair of 1.8GHz Atom cores with Hyper-Threading enabled. The tablet includes 2GB of RAM, lists 64GB of storage embedded solid state drive (SSD), and its storage can deplete quickly if you install a lot of applications and place a lot of movies and music on it., and an 11.6-inch display at 1366×768. There’s no 3G or LTE support, but WiFi and BlueTooth 4.0 are both included. Samsung says the ATIV Smart PC will last for up to 14 hours.           Specs: Intel Atom Z2760 1.8GHz CPU, 2GB DDR2 RAM, Intel SGX545 integrated graphics, 11.6in 1366x768 multi-touch display, 64GB SSD drive, 3x USB 2.0, 1x HDMI, 1x microSD, 1x keyboard dock, Broadcom 802.11a/b/g/n WiFi, Bluetooth 4.0, 4G/LTE/3G support, stylus, 30Whr Lithium-polymer battery, Microsoft Windows 8 operating system, 20.5x304x189mm, 1.45kg

It’s constructed entirely of plastic with a nice combination of a predominantly plain silver faux-metal finish and matt white highlights.The Acer Iconia W510 is less expensive than some other Atom-based hybrids, and its detachable tablet screen is light and portable.10.1-inch IPS screen, 1366 x 768; Dual-core 1.8GHz Atom, 2GB of RAM, 32/64GB SSD; 295 degree twist hinge turns keyboard into stand; Up to 18hrs battery life; Windows 8 convertible with keyboard dockThe Iconia W510 is so very portable. At 10.1-inches and weighing less than two pounds, it fits easily in a bag or large purse, and you'll likely forget you're even carrying it. Battery life is excellent.
But, There also aren't enough ports on the thing. One full size USB port is tough to swallow, especially since you'll like use it up with a wireless mouse to compensate for the W510 miserable touchpad.In laptop mode, the system is awkwardly top-heavy, and the puny keyboard and touch pad are not designed for serious use.
The bottom line:  Touchscreen laptops are common, as are ultrabooks that want to be tablets, and now we've even got portable all-in-ones like the Acer W700. Full Windows 8 or not, the Acer W510 is a tablet, though it wishes it were a convertible ultrabook.Offering low-powered Intel Atom tablet/laptop hybrids for $750 or more is a dodgy proposition for budget-looking systems such as the Iconia W510, but all-day battery life is a great selling point.

As a hybrid PC it's an undeniable compromise - but that's no bad thing.The Microsoft Surface Pro fits a full ultrabook experience in a compact 10-inch tablet. Thanks to the ingenious Type and Touch covers, it offers a comfortable interface and typing experience. The clean, crisp design and sharp 1080p screen rise above the competition.
But, The battery life is disappointing, and more ports would be nice. The 64GB model barely has any free storage. It costs as much as a regular laptop, especially because the cool keyboard cover isn't included by default.
The bottom line: The Surface Pro's gutsy design successfully reinvents the Windows 8 laptop by cramming an ultrabook experience into the body of a 10-inch tablet. Those wanting to go all-in on the tablet experience won't regret buying the Surface Pro, but we're holding out for a future, more polished generation of the device.
