Difference between Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 7.0 and Samsung Galaxy S4

 

Key Difference: The Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 7.0 sports a 7-inch WSVGA TFT touchscreen and has the dimensions 188 x 111.1 x 9.9 mm, making the device thinner compared to the former tablet. The tablet is actually targeted for the low-end range. Samsung Galaxy S4 is the successor to the very popular Samsung Galaxy S3. The company boasts new features into a slightly smaller and sleeker design. The phone’s screen has been increased to a stunning almost 5 inches with only slight decrease in size of the phone. The screen is a full HD Super AMOLED capacitive touchscreen that provides a greater resolution of 1080 pixels, almost 441ppi density.

 

Samsung announced the addition of a brand new 7-inch device to its tablet line-up. The device, dubbed Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 7.0 is the successor to the Galaxy Tab 2. If users were waiting on another high-end tablet from the makers of Galaxy S4, well it will be a huge disappointment. The tablet is actually targeted for the low-end range. The device does come with some upgrades compared to the Tab 2; but in terms of hardware, the device still lags behind the other mid-to-high range tablets.

 

The Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 7.0 sports a 7-inch WSVGA TFT touchscreen and has the dimensions 188 x 111.1 x 9.9 mm, making the device thinner compared to the former tablet. The screen has approximately 169 ppi density, giving it a decent resolution, but not the best available in the market. The company has styled the tablet after the S4 and the Galaxy Note, making it sleeker and more comfortable to hold. The device will be available in two models: Wi-Fi only and one with SIM support. The SIM model only support 2G and 3G functions. The Wi-Fi model will be available in the market as early as May 2013, while the GSM model will hit the markets in June.

 

The company has announced that the tablet will have a dual-core processor that will clock around 1.2 GHz and 1 GB RAM, which makes the device better in terms of speed compared to the Tab 2. The device will come with the company’s TouchWiz UX UI that was launched on the Galaxy S3 and will sport Android 4.1 Jelly Bean out of the box. The device offers ample amount of storage with 8/16 GB internal storage capacity, which can be boosted by 64 GB using a microSD card. One feature that might help increase sales of the device is the USB-capability, which is lacking feature in many tablets.

 

Galaxy Tab 3 will house a 3.15 MP autofocus rear camera and a 1.3 MP front camera for video calls. The cameras are not state-of-the art but they are decent enough for taking photos and video conferencing. The device does offer features such as geo-tagging and an LED flash. The device is powered by a non-removable Li-Ion 4000 mAh battery. Samsung has also integrated the phone with Google services, including Google Now. The device may not be for the users that are allowing for full-functional high-end tablet, but this is the perfect tablet for families that require a low-end tablet for internet browsing and gaming.

 

Samsung Galaxy S4 is the successor to the very popular Samsung Galaxy S3. The company boasts new features into a slightly smaller and sleeker design. The phone’s screen has been increased to a stunning almost 5 inches with only slight decrease in size of the phone. The screen is a full HD Super AMOLED capacitive touchscreen that provides a greater resolution of 1080 pixels, almost 441ppi density. The weight of the phone has also been reduced to 130 g and the width of the phone has been reduced by 1mm. The phone has sharper and straighter lines with just curved edges. In terms of design it is quite similar to the S3. The chassis is made up of polycarbonate plastic and the display is highly sensitive that accepts touch through gloves. The phone is available with either the 1.6 GHz octa-core Samsung Exynos 5 processor or the 1.9 GHz Snapdragon Fusion Pro quad-core processor, depending on the market. It is available with 16/32/64 GB internal capacity options and if that is not enough it can be upgraded by another 64 GB using the SD slot. The S4 comes with 2 GB RAM, which has become a norm for smartphones these days.

 

The phone comes with a stunning 13 MP primary camera, a 2 MP secondary camera and HD video recording capability. The S4 runs Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean, but it has yet to be seen if it will offer an upgrade to the new Key Lime Pie version when it is available in mid-2013. The phone is available in two colors Black Mist and White Frost, though there may be chances for other colors once the phone is available for purchasing. Now for the fun part! The phone offers brand new features that are sure to pull in some big spenders. The S4 offers hovering capabilities known as Air Wave, which allows users to swipe between screens, videos, photos without actually touching the screen. Another fun feature is the Smart Scroll and Smart Pause; Smart Scroll uses a sensor and the front camera to automatically scroll when a person is done reading a certain paragraph. The scrolling can also be controlled using tilt. Smart Pause uses the sensor to pause videos automatically when the phone senses that the person is no longer looking at the screen and then resumes when the person looks back at the screen.

 

Group Play is a feature that allows users to use NFC or Bluetooth to tap and transfer videos, photos, music and even engage in multiplayer games with other S4 users. There are many new camera features as well including dual camera, sound & shot, drama shot, story album, cinema photo and eraser mode. Dual camera allows users to use both the cameras at the same time including when trying to take a photo. The person taking the photo can place their face to the photo taken using the secondary camera or vice-versa. Sound & Shot feature takes 9 seconds of audio when capturing a photo. Drama Shot combines all the actions from a Burst shot into one screen. Story album enables the users to create an album using their shots and audio. Cinema photo feature allows the users to animate one portion of an image, while keeping the rest simple. Eraser Mode allows users to erase objects from the image that they do not wish to include. Other features also include S Health (users can track their diet, steps, exercises, etc.), S Translator, S Voice assistant, Galaxy S Voice Drive and Integrated Optical Reader. Samsung has yet to announce the release date and the price of the S4.
