Apple vs Samsung: which should you buy?

The Samsung Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra has a greater 14.6-inch display with deep, vibrant, and rich colors, making it ideal for sketching with the accompanying S-Pen, watching videos, and opening several tabs on the web.

In addition to fantastic sound quality from all four speakers, lightning-fast performance with the Snapdragon 8 chipset, and top-notch front and back cameras.

Which tablet is better: an Apple or a Samsung?

Which better buy is the Apple iPad Pro 12.9 2021 or the Samsung Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra? I guess that depends on your needs, therefore let me explain the various specifications.

The S8 Ultra is the best option if you want a huge display. It has a massive 14.6-inch AMOLED screen, which is far more significant than the iPad Pro.

If you require a lot of storage space, the Samsung tablet is the clear winner over the iPad Pro.

Samsung's excellent S-Pen is included in the box, whereas the Apple Pencil must be purchased separately (read our guide to the Apple Pencil vs. Apple Pencil 2 for more details).

Our roundup of the top Android styluses demonstrates that the S8 Ultra now has even more premium options, putting the ball back in Samsung's court. (Apple may argue that its Pencil is the best stylus for either device.)

However, if screen size isn't an issue for you, the iPad has a better display. While both tablets claim a 120Hz refresh rate, the iPad Pro's show appears to be better tuned for it, resulting in a more fluid and responsive UI. While the iPad Pro and the S8 Ultra are highly pricey, the S8 Ultra is slightly cheaper.

The iPad Pro's M1 chip makes it faster and more powerful than Samsung's S8 Ultra.

In addition, the iPad Pro's superior speed and power come from Apple's M1 CPU, making it a more capable computer than Samsung's S8 Ultra. If you're the type who can't stand waiting even a millisecond for something to load, Apple's tablet is a clear choice.

As a result, we think the iPad Pro is the superior tablet for artists like animators and filmmakers. At the same time, the S8 Ultra is the better choice for the average consumer who wants a tablet for online browsing, video chatting, and media consumption.

Apple vs. Samsung: MacBook Air (M2, 2022)

Apple's newest ultraportable laptop, the MacBook Air (M2, 2022), has the company's most advanced and powerful processor.

Apple's new MacBook Air (M2, 2022) is featherlight, sleek, and impressive. Also, it performs admirably since Apple put in their most unique and most powerful processor, the M2.

If you want the quickest laptop available, go no further than this latest offering from Apple (though older models are good too).

The 13.6-inch Liquid Retina display is perfect for professional and leisurely visual pursuits thanks to its high contrast ratio, wide color gamut, and high brightness.

There's also a 1080p webcam, an all-day battery life, and MagSafe charging. See our evaluation of the MacBook Air (M2, 2022) for more information.

Compare the Apple MacBook Pro 13 with the Samsung Galaxy Book 2 Pro 13.3.

The Samsung Galaxy Book 2 Pro, released in April, is a tiny, lightweight laptop with WiFi and 5G connectivity options.

It has a high-contrast, full-HD display that shows colors accurately and has deep blacks.

Samsung's Galaxy Book 2 Pro has a 12th-generation Intel processor, which gives it enough speed and power for running Windows 11 Home, and the battery life is excellent.

The backlit keyboard is excellent, and the abundance of connectors means you can plug in just about everything you need.

Which tablet is better: an Apple or a Samsung?

Let's be honest: the MacBook Air (M2, 2022) is a better laptop than Samsung's offering. In the first place, even though the processors in both laptops are top-notch, the Apple M2 chip clearly gives it the upper hand.

The screen on the MacBook Air (M2, 2022) is larger and more detailed than the one on the Samsung (2.560 by 1,664 pixels against "only" 1,920 by 1,080), and the device is thinner, lighter, and more compact overall.

In certain respects, the Samsung Galaxy Book 2 Pro is superior to the Air.

It has a MicroSD card slot, an HDMI port, and a USB-A port, which sets it apart from the MacBook Air.

Compared to the MacBook Air, its weight of 1.24 kilograms is reduced to 868 grams, and its size is reduced to a negligible 0.16 centimeters.

It's also less expensive than the MacBook Air (M2, 2022), which starts at $1,199 (£1,249). At the time of writing, the regular price of the base model is $1,050 (£999).

The Samsung Galaxy Book 2 Pro is an excellent choice if you need a super-light gadget or think the extra ports may come in handy.

However, if you can afford it, the MacBook Air (M2, 2022) is a better laptop and is worth the extra money.
