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.

Screen

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.

Operating System

Samsung has been using its TouchWiz UI technology in almost all of its products. The Korean giant included the latest OS, version 4.4 in the Tab S 8.4. The combination offers a highly personalized experience to the user. The S 8.4 is most likely to receive the latest Android update, version 5.0 Lollipop.

In comparison, the HP tablet runs flat on . To be precise, it runs on Windows 8.1, not Windows RT, as used by most tablets. With respect to user interface, Windows version 8.1 edges past based tablets in terms of multi-tasking. The desktop mode of Omni 10 offers similar multitasking experience as that on your computer or laptop. The modern UI mode on the Omni 10 Tablet enables you to work on two apps simultaneously.

Processing Unit

The Omni 10 Tablet includes an Intel based Atom Z3770 quad-core processing unit, set to run at a top 1.2GHz speed. Regardless, the device is an average performer. A DDR3 RAM of 2GB ensures decent performance. On the other hand, Samsung encompasses an Exynos based 5 Octa 5420 chipset accompanied with a Cortex A15 quad-core processing unit, clocked at a top 1.9GHz speed and Cortex A7 quad-core processing unit, running at top 1.3GHz speed powers the tablet. In addition, a Mali-T628 MP6 graphic chipset along with a superior 3GB of RAM powers the Samsung Tab S 8.4.

Pricing

The Omni 10 Tablet is priced at $420. Meanwhile, the Samsung Galaxy Tab S 8.4 is priced at $300.
