Hey you guys it’s max max tech we just got
the brand new Samsung Galaxy Tab s6 in and today we’re gonna be comparing it with Apple’s 11 inch iPad pro. You guys may have seen my galaxy s5e videos and I was really impressed with that tablet. Samsung did a fantastic job but there was one thing that kept me from recommending it to most people who like to buy a tablet every to say two to three years, and that was the processor inside of it. Now here the tab s6 is going to fix that. now right out of the gate we see a couple differences in the Box. first off the tab s6 comes with an S Pen you don’t have to purchase it separately but we’ll be talking about that in just a bit when we compare it to the Apple pencil but second is the charger unfortunately the tab s6 does not come with that new amazing 25 watt Samsung charger that comes with a note
10 plus, but instead the same 15 watt charger that has a standard USB here and a USB type-c on the other end whereas the iPad pro comes with an 18 watt USB type-c charger the same one that we expect in the new upcoming iPhones the S6s battery is slightly smaller so charging time should be fairly similar as you guys can see they look quite similar from the top but that does change once we pick it up the tab s6 is super thin and super lightweight you definitely feel it in the hands compared to the iPad pro you may have also noticed that there is a decent size difference between the two even though the specs don’t make it seem like there is so the iPad is actually a little bit taller and quite a bit wider because of different display aspect ratio which we’ll talk about in just a bit both of these high-end tablets do use USB type-c neither of them have a headphone jack unfortunately and both of them also do have quad speakers so two at the bottom and two at the top now the iPad has its magnetic connector for the Apple pencil here on the side whereas the new tab s6 actually puts it on the back over here let’s test it out. It’s interesting it actually just magnetized right here not in that slot and the pencil does move around quite a bit, the magnet’s actually up here as you guys can tell so it’s not doesn’t seem as a secure or a strong of a connection compared to the iPad now the next major difference is authentication the tab s6 gives you a variety of different options of what most people are going to be using is the fingerprint authentication where this new tab s6 actually uses an optical in display fingerprint scanner unlike their flagship phones that use an ultrasonic sensor. what we’ve seen with the oneplus phones is the the optical ones actually we’re quicker and they’re a bit more reliable. okay not bad, wow that is definitely faster than on the s10 phones and on the note 10 as well but of course the iPad pro uses face ID as you guys could see it already unlocked before I swiped and what the iPad you can hold it any direction I can hold it sideways upside down as long as you’re not blocking the sensor here it will work, it works fast very secure and very reliable so I would say that face ID is better than having to put your fingerprint on there. as you guys can see it works really well. now let’s go ahead and compare the displace and the first thing that I have to mention, because it really just popped out like crazy, is the reflectivity the iPad has much less reflections and the screen looks dark or black even when it’s shut off, whereas the tab s6 has a ton of reflectivity and it picks up all sorts of colors, so brown from that kind of wall bluish over here, it is a massive difference and along with that if we pick it up and start looking from the sides, the screen is kind of wavy which is very interesting almost like it’s made out of plastic, which I don’t think it is I think it’s glass, now another big difference is the aspect ratio, so the Samsung is actually a 16 by 10 display not a sixteen by nine but the iPad is actually a four by three. so that means that even though the specs 11 inch versus 10 and a half, those seem very similar in the real world the iPad has a lot more usable screen real estate. the next question is does the tap s6 put out more light to battle that reflectivity and the answer is and no not at all. the iPad is definitely quite a bit brighter and when we max both of these out I’m still seeing a bunch of reflections on the tab six, where’s the iPad has none whatsoever because of that brighter display. now as far as the shift looking from the sides the iPad does have a little bit more brightness shift but because the display is brighter, even from the side it is still brighter and looks better. the display resolutions and pixels per inch are actually fairly similar, so both these displays look really good they’re very sharp, but if we go and take a look at a YouTube video, there is a massive difference in all sorts of things. first off, just the quality, because Android can actually play back the vp9 codec we’re playing back at 1440p 60fps, compared to 1080p and not only that we also get HDR video playback with the tab s6 compared to just standard with the iPad so with the tab s6 we see a lot more detail better colors and better dynamic range as well, we have a lot more details in the shadows and in the highlights of course this is an OLED display, so the blacks are very deep pure black compared to slightly grayish on the iPad, and overall if you like watching videos the tab s6 will definitely be a better experience. the iPad pro screen does have one trick up with sleeve one standout key feature and that is promotion which allows it to run at up to 120 Hertz, which gives it a super smooth motion compared to the 60 Hertz but not only that it can actually drop down to 60 Hertz or 30 or even 24 Hertz when you’re watching a video so will match up to your content and that will allow it to save battery life as well. so here you guys can see the differences between the two as far as fluidity, that is definitely better on the iPad now with that said let’s jump into the Pens, and this promotion actually helps the iPad out as well starting out with the s-pen as you guys can see if I move quickly there’s quite a bit of delay compared to the Apple pencil even moving quickly there is no delay whatsoever and now it’s time to compare the speakers both of these have quad speakers which is great if you want to watch videos listen to music we do have Dolby Atmos turned on with the tab s6 and to start out by listening to the iPad pro which absolutely destroys all of the other iPads that Apple makes let’s go ahead and try this out [Music] okay so we were not expecting that, the iPad sounded good it definitely sounded good had good volume, but man the type of six just smoked it like crazy. now this is a time that I would normally compare the keyboards but unfortunately we are still waiting for a tab s6 keyboard with that new trackpad to come in, so we’ll be doing a separate comparison on which one of these tablets are a better laptop replacement, and there we’re going to cover the keyboards that trackpad we’re gonna cover dex as well as other hardware and software that we didn’t in this video, so if you guys want to see that video it’s gonna be a great one make sure you guys are subscribed that you guys have those notifications enabled. before we talk about performance let’s take a quick look at the cameras. we have a dual system with the tab s6 so not only the standard, we also have this ultra wide right here, but we do not have a flash which is weird for me because I would think with the tablet you would use it to scan documents maybe deposit checks that kind of stuff and a flash definitely comes in handy, now with the iPad, we have that single camera, so you can’t switch but we have that flash and we also have a portrait mode but only for the front. here’s a few shots for you guys side by side let me know in the comments section does the iPad do a better job or does the tab s6 and also let me know do you guys actually use your tablets to take photos I definitely want to hear your guys’s opinions. now finally let’s get into performance we just ran a geekbench 4 test and as you guys can see there is a pretty substantial performance difference now the tab at 6 is still really respectable in its top of the line as far as smartphones go it has a Qualcomm 855 processor but the a 12 X Bionic that’s in the iPad pro is on a whole nother level this is laptop-like performance actually beating out a fair number of laptops. now let’s also go ahead and run Geekbench 5 because that was just released the tests just finished and as you guys could see the numbers are much lower it’s kind of odd to see the numbers this low but the test has been updated here yeah it’s a pretty substantial difference about 50% faster in single core the iPad pro is and roughly 65 ish percent faster in the multi-core score now of course these are just benchmarks and what I am wondering about is: is there actually a difference in the real world, and for that you guys should tune in to our full detailed review after we’ve been using the tab at 6 for a while and along with that I want to plug a couple other videos we might do a performance comparison chasing some different apps in a gaming comparison so we can check out the difference in graphics so make sure you guys are subscribed and have those notifications enabled and to finish off let’s talk about prices the iPad pro retails at $800 for this 11 inch model and that is with 64 gigabytes of storage of course 4 gigs of RAM and no pen or anything else included, whereas the brand new tab s6 starts off at $649 so $150 less and that’s actually with $128 gigs of storage six gigs
of ram and with that s-pen included so right off the get-go that gives you a much better value but not only that with the tab s6u we actually have a microSD expansion slot that can support up to one terabyte microSD cards now if you spend a little bit more money for $730 this is the model we have with 256 gigs of storage and also 8 gigs of ram so not that much more money and gives you you know an extra bang for the buck there but with the iPad you can’t get a 128
gig setup, you have to go straight to the 256 and that cost an extra 150 dollars, and no matter which specification you want either just the tablets by themselves or adding on a keyboard or an Apple pencil we’re specking them all the way up the tap s6 is definitely a better value but of course there’s some other things that come into play such as software and maybe depends so make sure you guys are subscribed and you guys have notifications enable so you guys don’t miss out on our video covering which one of these is a better laptop replacement and of course we’re gonna have a couple other videos as well that you guys are gonna want to watch and if you want to watch something else right now a couple videos right there for you guys this has been Max with Maxtech and I will see you in the next video.
