Samsung recently unveiled a Windows 10, 2-in-1 tablet, Samsung Galaxy TabPro S. Earlier, Samsung’s competition in the tablet section was Apple. It is safe to say that the company was competing only with Apple. But with this latest launch, the scenario seems to have changed. Anyone who stays updated with the Tech World knows how Microsoft Surface Pro 4, Surface Book and Windows 10 Lumia phones are the hottest topics today.


Now, Samsung has decided to compete with another most-wanted gadget. Not Apple’s, but Microsoft’s. Let us see whether Galaxy TabPro S has the potential to beat Microsoft Surface Pro 4, as this is its only competitor right now.

For the display, there is slight difference between the dimensions. The Galaxy TabPro S is lighter than the Surface Pro 4. TabPro S measures 11.5 x 7.8 x 0.24 inches, while Surface Pro 4, 11.5 x 7.93 x 0.33 inches. This slight difference doesn’t count, so in terms of display, both tabs score equal points.

If you are a fan of light gadgets, you may prefer Samsung’s convertible as it weighs only 1.5 pounds. On the other hand, Microsoft 2-in-1 Windows 10 tablet weighs 1.73 pounds. Even though the weight difference seems tempting, do not forget that Samsung has tried to fit 900MHz Intel Core m3-6Y30 processor and a 4GB memory in such a thin body. Only after people start using this device will we come to know if TabPro S faces issues like freezing and restarting.

Being 2-in-1 devices, keyboard is a must. Without the keyboard, these gadgets will only remain tablets. Speaking of the keyboard, Samsung Galaxy TabPro S scores a point, as the keyboard is sold along with the convertible. The Microsoft Surface Pro 4 keyboard needs to be purchased separately.

When it comes to battery, Samsung wins. The new tablet is said to have a battery life of up to 10.5 hours. Microsoft Surface Pro 4 has a battery life of 9 hours. When it comes to OS, Surface Pro 4 runs on Windows 10 Pro, and the TabPro S runs on Windows 10. When specs are put on paper, Galaxy TabPro S seems to be winning the race. But it is still too early to declare it a winner. Let’s wait for a month or two for the final verdict, as Samsung may start selling the tablet anytime next month.

    I think the surface pro has a bit better screen, at least on paper. As seen here ,it has a considerably higher pixel density. A difference of 50 pixels per inch may not seem like much, but I think being close to 200ppi is a bit too low. The Tabpro S though has an Amoled screen, which in my own opinion is pretty amazing in producing colors and in the brightness department. The colors tend to be saturated though so some may still prefer the LED LCD in the Surface Pro 4, specially photographers and video editors.
