The Korean giant successfully conquers smartphone arena.
The tablet segment gave Samsung the chills at the initial stages. However, after a couple of wrongs, the South Korean number one smartphone manufacturing company got it right. Initially, it was Tab series for Samsung that made news in the tablet segment. Samsung eventually replaced it with the Note series, which is, until date, running successfully. Regardless, the Samsung Tab line up was its ticket into the tablet world. The South Korean company gained recognition in the tablet arena.
The Galaxy Tab S 8.4 is a superior offering from Samsung, which aims to maintain supremacy in the tablet world. The device motivates the likes of HP to produce quality products for its users. HP has been manufacturing templates for its users for a long time. However, the release of Omni 10 Tablet by HP marks the initiation of great offerings from the company.
Samsung is a true leader when it comes to equipping its products with fancy gimmicks. The South Korean Company offers state of the art fingerprint sensor along with spectacular 8MP camera specs in its tablets. On the other hand, HP offers a range of features, but lacks in terms of publicity stunts as equipped in the Samsung device.
The massive 10-inch display of the HP tablet, offers a decent 1920×1200 pixels of resolution. The high-resolution specification plants the device into the full-range tablet department. In comparison, the Samsung offering swings between a full-range and entry-level tablet. It incorporates a massive 8.4-inch display, having a superior 1600×2560 pixels of resolution. Consequently, the display offers a superior pixel density of 350-pixels per inch. The HP tablet, released almost a year ago offers QHD technology.
Samsung has been using its TouchWiz UI technology in almost all of its products. The Korean giant included the latest Android OS, version 4.4 in the Tab S 8.4.
