Among the most-awaited gadgets of this year are Apple's iPad Mini 4 and Samsung's Galaxy Tab S2, both of which have been circulating the market for some time now. However, with Black Friday coming, it is good to know which one gives you the best value for your money -- so here's a side-by-side review, betting the two of them against each other.


The 7.9-inch gadget with 2048 x 1536 IPS LCD display has always been marked as a good tablet for content consumption, light browsing, and a bit of gaming.

It comes equipped with Apple's A8 dual-core SoC at 1.5GHz, 2GB RAM and a variety of options for internal storage: 16GB, 64GB, or 128GB.

It weighs 0.65 pounds, and has a 6,471 mAh battery.

For camera enthusiasts, it comes with a decent 8MP main snapper, and a 1.2 front-cam for selfies.


Samsung's version of a tab, on the other hand, comes in two variants: the 8-inch and 9.7-inch models, but the software is the same for both: they come with Samsung Exynos 5433 octa-core SoC.

Unlike the iPad Mini 4, the Galaxy Tab S2 comes with 3GB of RAM, with 32 and 64GB storage capacities. In addition, the tablets have microSD support for expansion.

However, it's not so bad, if you take in the rest of the features: it comes with a metal frame and plastic back cover, but it comes with a Super AMOLED display at 2048 x 1536 native resolution.

Its camera captures at 8MP on the rear and 2.1MP in front.

As for it's OS, sorry, but it's not on Marshmallow yet. According to the Tech Times, it will come equipped with the Android Lollipop.

That said, it all comes down to the price. According to Apple, the iPad Mini 4 starts at $399 up to $729 depending on your choice of storage and connectivity: The 16GB model starts at $399, the 64 GB at $499, and the 129GB at $599. As for its connectivity, there is a $130 difference between a Wi-Fi connection, as opposed to the Wi-Fi + Cellular version.

On the other hand, the Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 is slightly cheaper, starting at $399 as reported by the International Business Times.

Which among these tablets do you want for your own -- are you more keen on getting Apple's nifty iPad Mini 4, or do you prefer the cool specs and features from Samsung's decidedly cheaper tablet?
