  • Update: Android 5.0 has been making waves with the 'Material Design' UI overhaul. When will Lollipop make its way to the Samsung Galaxy Tab S? Find out .

  • Both the iPad Air and Samsung Galaxy Tab S are worth the $500 you’ll invest for a high-quality tablet. For the most part, both tablets are evenly matched when it comes to hardware. Although the iPad Air is a bit heavier and thicker than the Galaxy Tab S, its aluminum design makes it feel more like a premium device. The iPad’s Retina display is indeed gorgeous, but the Galaxy Tab S’ display is among the most vibrant and bright I’ve seen on a tablet yet. Expect solid battery life from both tablets as well.

Samsung Galaxy Tab S 10.5 specifications

With an exceptional design in tow, the Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 8.0 gives the Apple iPad Mini a run for its money. The 8-inch Tab S2 is thinner and lighter than both the iPad Mini 4 and the Dell Venue 8 7000, and it offers twice the amount of internal storage for the same price as each of them. (A 9.7-inch version of the Tab S2 is also available, and is otherwise almost identical.)
