Samsung Tab S7 Plus and iPad Pro which one is the king?

The tablet market cannot be called booming, this category of devices, on the one hand, is massive, on the other hand, tablets are bought for more than one year. This is a deliberate purchase, in which a device for recreation and/or work is meticulously chosen and then used to the bitter end. The main thing in a tablet is a large screen, which allows you to watch movies, read documents or websites, and read mail. The other day, one of our readers said that he has been using the Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 Edition tablet, for six years this is his working tool. Somehow it was completely forgotten over the years that Samsung began to develop the S Pen in tablets back in 2012, that is, almost a decade has passed.

I refreshed the capabilities of that tablet and I must note that the capabilities of these devices, as well as the S Pen, have gone far ahead, although every year after each announcement one can hear a recitative that nothing has changed, everything is boring and the models are not interesting. The feeling that people expect circus performances from presentations does not happen, and hence the disappointment. A lot changes from year to year - screens, batteries, built-in capabilities, including the S Pen. Something is changing dramatically, something is almost imperceptible. But tablets are definitely not the kind of devices that people change constantly and annually, this is a purchase for many years.

  To some extent, we can assume that the Tab S7 + is an approximation to laptops, the concept of a two-in-one device, this is a tablet, but with a keyboard, it is a replacement for a working computer. We have been talking about the fact that tablets aspire to become computers for more than one year, but how close have they become?

Since the Tab S7 + is a flagship with a corresponding price tag, this tablet cannot be massive, the price is the main blocking factor here. Perhaps many would like such a device, but a small audience can afford it. These are loyal Samsung users, many have used previous generations of tablets and are satisfied with them. Since it is a long-term purchase, the price becomes less daunting. It's arguably the best Android tablet for both work and play, both for the screen and the S Pen. But first things first.

In different cases, with the Apple A12Z Bionic, although a smaller step has been taken on the processor side compared to the previous generations, the 2020 iPad Pros are the most powerful tablets on the market. The differences with the 2018 model tablets are not huge, but they are all forward and useful steps. It is worth buying one of the 2020 model tablets by giving the difference. Of course, more investments are needed to properly use the iPad Pro. With the Apple Pencil and especially the Magic Keyboard, the tablet's experience goes up and becomes a challenge to laptops.

Apple made extensive changes to its iPad Pro lineup in the fall of 2018, and in the past year and a half, it has not touched this tablet series for professional users. In early 2020, just as the effects of the coronavirus epidemic started to increase, the company surprised and introduced the 2020 model version of the iPad Pro. The new generation iPad Pros, which come with 11-inch and 12.9-inch screen sizes, follow the design change made in 2018. However, the rear camera module on the iPhone 11and we've seen it gain a similar look to the 11 Pro's, with the addition of a second camera, as well as a LiDAR sensor. Thanks to the latter, this tablet, whose power on the augmented reality side increased, even more, aimed to offer a complete laptop experience with the Magic Keyboard keyboard cover introduced together. In this article, we will make a comparison between the Tab S7 Plus and the iPad Pro to see which one the king is.

 

Samsung Tab S7 Plus and iPad Pro which one is the king?

Design & Display.

 Thanks for the battle with screen bezels making it to smartphones but not tablets. Since the size of the devices are different, on the tablet, the frames are important to hold it in your hands, it is almost impossible to take the tablet over the edge.

When you think about a large tablet, it seems that it should be heavy, pulling your handoff. The first thing that strikes you about the Tab S7 + is the weight - 575 grams. Not very little? Certainly. But due to the area of ​​the case, its thickness, this weight is correctly distributed, holding the tablet with one hand will not be difficult. It is unlikely that you will do this all the time, but taking it off the table, holding it while you watch a movie in bed - all this can be done with one hand.

 The body is made of anodized aluminum, which has become the standard for products of this level. Very neat execution, there is nothing to complain about here.

The front-facing camera has moved to the center of the wider part, which is more convenient for video calls when the tablet is on a stand.

On the narrow ends, there are two speakers, four in total. On the right side is a USB Type C connector, on the left side is a microphone, another one is on the top end. There is also an on / off button, a paired volume key. This arrangement reminded me of Microsoft Surface, although it is standard for all devices of this class, just an association with one of the recent devices that I played.

There is also a slot for memory cards on the top end (in the LTE or 5G version there is also a nanoSIM card).

The place for the S Pen is highlighted on the back panel in color; the stylus sticks to this area due to the magnet. It's not worth carrying the S Pen in your bag, it will fly off. To do this, it is better to get a case with a special pocket for the S Pen.

While working, you can place the S Pen on the top edge, it will stick securely there too.

The perception of this tablet is in the top five, everything is done accurately, with taste, and the ergonomics are excellent, although this is not expected from such a large device. The fact that the body is thin and the edges straight do not bother.

Reversing it, As mentioned above, in terms of design, the 2020 iPad is no different from the tablet that came out a year and a half ago. Both the 11-inch model we have and the 12.9-inch model have the same dimensions as their predecessors. Only in terms of weight, this year's models are slightly ahead. We can attribute this difference to the increasing number of cameras and the growing camera module. Again, there is a design that combines aluminum and glass. On the front, the screen takes up a large area and reaches a ratio of 82.9 percent. The bezel that wraps around the screen has the same thickness on all four sides. The TrueDepth camera system is also placed in this frame. The corners of the screen are curved to match the corners of the tablet. The edges are straight.

On the back, the biggest difference compared to the previous generation product is the square camera module. Thanks to this camera module, it is possible to separate the iPad Pro 2020 from the 2018 model. In terms of appearance, it is similar to the camera module in iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Pro and includes the main camera as well as an ultra-wide-angle camera, LED flash, microphone, and LiDAR sensor.

The new iPad Pro also carries a USB-C port. There are a total of four speakers, two of which are located on the sides of this port and the other two are on the opposite side. There is a power button on the top edge. The volume keys are also placed on the right side, close to it. Of course, when defining these elements, we assume that you hold the tablet upright and the TrueDepth camera system above the screen. You can use the iPad Pro any way you want, but be careful not to cover the front camera when using it in landscape mode. Otherwise, Face ID will not work. Other than that, Face ID works fine no matter how you hold the tablet.

on the right side, there is the nano-SIM card tray placed towards the bottom. The area between the volume keys and the SIM card tray is the magnetic section designed to charge and store Apple Pencil. On the back, a three-point connection point located towards the bottom edge, in other words, the Smart Connector, enables connection with accessories such as the Smart Keyboard Folio or Magic Keyboard.

  As far as display is concerned, Samsung Tab S7 Plus comes with a 12.4 Super AMOLED display.  It is great for watching movies and even playing. It occupies 84.5% of the front of the device. Samsung Galaxy Tab S7 Plus has 2800x1752 resolution with 266 PPi.

 The screen supports a frequency of 120 Hz, unlike the Note20 Ultra, there is no adaptive mode in the menu, if you enable 120 Hz, the setting will work everywhere. Smooth scrolling of the menu, the same smooth movements in toys - all these are undoubted advantages of 120 Hz. There is only one minus, the battery is discharged 10-15% faster. For me, this is not critical, and therefore I set 120 Hz and did not think about it anymore.

The quality of the screen is such that you can work with it even in the bright sun.

You can choose the color scheme, make the colors on the screen saturated or muted, there is an adaptive backlight, a blue filter. Everything is familiar to other Samsung products.

The oleophobic coating of the screen is not bad, but due to the area, it is covered with prints, which are visible in the off state. This is the trouble with all devices with a large diagonal, I have not come across any exceptions.

The picture quality on the screen is amazing, it is convenient both to work and watch movies or photos. The diagonal and picture quality is what distinguishes the model on the market, these are its strengths. And the fact that the SuperAMOLED screen gives a gain in operating time, although for many it is not important given their scenario of using the tablet.

The tablet comes with an S Pen, which is welcome and when you look at it, you realize that Samsung is a great fellow for providing this feature by default, since this is the only way to introduce people to the capabilities of the S Pen.

There is a key on the body, it is used for contextual commands, the handle's ergonomics are not bad.

There is a small gyroscope inside the S Pen, as well as Bluetooth, which allows you to draw various commands in the air. You can remotely control the camera, start filming, control the presentation, and so on. The commands can be customized.

For many, the gestures available in the tablet are superfluous, but for corporate users, this is a good option, since the same presentations become much more convenient, you do not need to hold the device to control the slideshow.

The built-in battery charges in a couple of minutes, just stick the S Pen on the back, the area is marked with a color. As before, the pen supports 4096 degrees of pressure, which will be appreciated by those who draw. The reaction speed has changed, now it is 9 ms (46 ms in previous products). When you write on a tablet, it feels like it is paper. I didn’t feel this problem before, now it’s a little better, but it’s subjective and on the verge of sensations.

As soon as you take the S Pen in your hand when the screen is locked, you can create a quick note, on a black background you can write or draw something, and then save this information in Samsung Notes.

In the settings, you can specify that the device will tell you when you move away from the S Pen, which is good if you have forgotten the pen somewhere and leave. Most importantly, you can unlock your tablet by pressing a button on the S Pen if you want. If you are not afraid for safety, then set up your tablet so it is very convenient.

Let's start with the Quick Note mode, where you can draw or write something. But the main thing is that the window can be made transparent, it is placed on top of other windows. Samsung did not call this operating mode in any way, but I called it tracing paper. Remember the transparent sheets of paper onto which we transferred drawings as children? Something similar can be done here. Or you can make notes, and in the background, you will have a photo or video, and the latter will be played. That is, not only will you work, but you can immediately take notes.

The tablet can recognize handwritten text in many languages. Even my chicken handwriting is recognized by the tablet quite successfully. You can keep your notes as they are for convenience. Or you can recognize text, then a search by notes appears. For lawyers, students, and everyone who has not yet lost the habit of writing and loves it (and there are many of them in the world), such a tablet is just a godsend.

Recognized text can be saved in different formats, including PDF or MS Word, and immediately sent anywhere. And you should not underestimate this opportunity, it is unique and someone will have to come to court.

Select and Save mode allows you to select any piece on the screen (rectangle, lasso, freeform - and it's very easy with a pen!), Then you can save it as a graphic file or GIF animation. But what I like and help in my work is the ability to recognize text in a photo or screenshot, select the desired piece, and you have a text in any language in front of you. Cool? Not that word. While you are working with such clippings, you can place them on the screen, they will be in front of your eyes. For those who create collages, this is a unique tool.

A screenshot is a normal screenshot, you can immediately write or draw something on it. No differences from regular screenshots.

Live messages is an old, but no less interesting opportunity to create an animated video in which you draw or write something, and then send an mr4 file to a person. The animation is pretty, especially if you can draw.

AR-sketching is an opportunity to attach some drawings to a person's face (any camera, even a front camera, even a main one). Interesting? For young people, yes, everyone else will just miss this opportunity.

Translation - hover the S Pen over a word, and with the help of Google's translation service, a translation appears immediately, the number of languages ​​is huge, you can listen to how the word sounds.

Now about the section that many people love, this is PENUP. A kind of social service for those who love to draw and do it on their Note devices. When you look at what pictures people create, you are amazed at their skills, envy with white envy. Every two weeks there are contests in which you need to draw a certain plot.

Finally, there are coloring pages. A popular topic to calm the nerves, and here it is very well organized. You can not only color these pictures but see how others have done it. And sometimes it allows you to look differently at the creative process itself, there are extraordinary works.

These are not all the pre-installed features for the S Pen, but we will consider them as the main ones. Of the additional, but no less important things, I note the support for the S Pen in most professional Adobe programs, as well as AutoDesk. In a word, you can use this pen anywhere and in any way, your possibilities are not limited by anything, today it is the best solution that exists, the only question is how and for what you will use it.

One of the key changes that have come with the S Pen is the change in the note capabilities in Samsung Notes. The format of notes has become new, it became possible to save audio inside, moreover, tied to what you write on the screen. And not only that, I will try to tell you about all the possibilities in order.

You now have folders in which you can sort notes (there are separate tags that you can put down, they work both with notes and with pictures, videos). That is, folders are no longer categories as such, but really folders in which you can store notes.

The next scenario, which people in a number of professions, including journalists, will find interesting. You create a note and start recording sound, while simultaneously making notes by hand (even text, even drawings). In a saved note, you can quickly jump to a segment of the audio recording, just click on the word that you wrote down or a picture.

For many, it is no longer possible to imagine a tablet without a keyboard cover; this device is becoming a replacement for a computer with some success. The larger the screen diagonal and, accordingly, the body, the larger the keyboard can be made, which means that the keys and the convenience of working with them will increase. In Tab S7 +, the keyboard is simply gorgeous - the keys are well spaced, there is space between them. Blind typing is no problem, you just type. You need to get used to the fact that switching languages ​​is placed on the key to the right of the space bar, periodically, when typing blindly, I touch this button.

But the quality of the keyboard is as close as possible to conventional laptops, and not bad. It's almost the keyboard of a 13-inch MacBook Pro, which says a lot. There is no key illumination, but it doesn't matter either.

Unfortunately, the fact that the keyboard is built into the case makes itself felt, it will be difficult to work with it on the knees, there is not enough rigidity, the whole structure starts to walk, and it is impossible to type quickly.

To test the convenience of the keyboard, I typed several texts on the Tab S7 +, about 30 thousand characters. When typing quickly, your hands start to get tired after about 15 thousand characters, you need to take a break. This is a very good result for a mobile device, and a tablet is.

A number of function keys bring the keyboard closer to Windows laptops, everything is logical and simple here.

The big touchpad is nice because it supports gestures. The bad thing is that when typing, I turn it off, as sometimes I touch the right edge. You can disable it with one click from the keyboard, there are no problems, it happens quickly. But what annoys me is the inability to open applications by clicking on the right side of the panel. She clicks, but nothing happens. On the left, everything works with a bang, there are no problems.

It remains to say that the cover is magnetised to the case, you can remove it at any time. It's comfortable. It also allows you to detach the keyboard and leave only the back, where there is a pocket for the S Pen.

You can adjust the angle of inclination by yourself, everything is very convenient.

Please note that there is a DeX key on the keyboard, this switches to the corresponding mode. You can connect your tablet to a Samsung TV via Wi-Fi, then you can work in this mode, similar to Windows, on the big screen. But with and without a keyboard, the model is available on the tablet. This is the transformation of your desktop into a familiar desktop environment. For many, DeX has already become a replacement for a computer, and such a replacement has the right to life, the interface is familiar and convenient, applications are launched in separate windows.

To say that this tablet can be a full-fledged replacement for a laptop is impossible, the keyboard does not allow working anywhere due to its design. But this is the biggest approximation, for the first time the tablet is so convenient in this aspect (here the keyboard is better than in the iPad Pro, it at least does not cause the tablet to heat up). For work, this is a good option if you understand the limitations and bottlenecks. But I do not share the enthusiasm that tablets have already learned to be like computers, this is still at least a premature statement.

Having said that, Apple iPad Pro comes with a 12.9 IPS LCD display which Apple calls Retina Display. The screen occupies 85.4% of the front of the device. The iPad Pro 2020 has a resolution (2732x2048) with 264 PPI. It supports True Tone and ProMotion technologies. The screen supports 120Hz refresh rate.

The screen and glass are laminated, there is no gap in between. This increases the visual pleasure even more and creates the feeling of using it with a slightly more natural paper when using Apple Pencil.

The features of the iPad Pro's screen include a 120 Hz refresh rate. The effect of this is mostly used with Apple Pencil, providing a realistic and fast writing or drawing experience. However, you can feel fluency in scrolling and animations in the user interface. The screen brightness is also around 600 nits and when compared to a laptop, it seems well above the standards. In this way, it offers the opportunity to work comfortably in the outdoor environment. On the other hand, another contribution of this high brightness is on the side of high dynamic range support. You can benefit from Dolby Vision support for TV series or movies you watch on Netflix or movies that you download or rent from the iTunes Store.

Speaking of movies and TV shows, this tablet is also a good content consumption tool, although the productivity-oriented features of the iPad Pro is more prominent. Thanks to its body and ergonomic design, which is not heavy compared to a tablet, it is not very troublesome to hold the tablet in hand and watch something. It is not very difficult to hold and watch a short series of about 20 minutes on the iPad Pro. On the sound side, the quad-speaker system provides a very good, high intensity and quality sound output and does not require another speaker. According to your grip of the tablet, the speakers on the bottom focus on bass, while those on the top focus on the treble output.

Apple stopped using the 3.5mm headphone jack on iPad Pro two years ago and there's no going back. If you find headphones connected to the USB-C port, you can use them with the iPad Pro. Apart from that, you can get it from 3.5mm to USB-C adapters. Of course, the best is the wireless solution, and at this point, Apple's AirPods and AirPods Pro headphones stand out with their practicality. If you plan to watch, listen, or do video and music production with this tablet, AirPods will be a convenient solution.

Apple iPad Pro comes with an awesome feature, which makes the device look like a good laptop, which is a trackpad. Having a trackpad can make your work on iPad Pro move at light speed. Trackpad allows you to highlight any text you like and select or drag it to anywhere. Trackpad also gives you the chance to access all the iPad applications just by moving the cursor to the bottom of the screen. Moving to the upper corner you will find the reachable control panel. It is important to say that you can use the trackpad to go home using the three-finger movement. Trackpad opens the door on multi-features which can be a great advantage while using the iPad Pro.

In terms of Apple iPad Pro Pencil. The iPad Pro Pencil is the same second-generation pencil that came with iPad Pro 2018. It is totally smooth and has a mat finish. It also thin and has one flat side making it more comfortable to handle the Apple iPad Pro Pencil is connected via Bluetooth which means it has a battery inside.  Charging the pencil is too easy. All you have to do is connecting the Apple Pencil magnetically to the tablet and it will be charged wirelessly.

The Apple Pencil has many wonderful advantages which make your use for the Apple iPad Pro quite easy. For example, you can take notes in your lectures using the Apple Pencil in support of some writing apps which can make taking notes a piece of a cake. The large and high-resolution screen makes you feel as if you are writing on actual paper. And even if you miss a point or you need to edit some information you can do in no time, because the Apple Pencil has enabled you to turn the pencil into a real useful eraser to edit anything you like by tapping on the pencil double time. This incredible feature comes in handy for those who use the iPad Pro for taking notes. So if you are one of them you can kiss sticky problems of notes taking goodbye.

Magic Keyboard, a new keyboard cover developed for iPad Pro, was introduced at the same time as this new generation tablet. Maybe it got more attention and sound than the tablet. We see that Apple makes different experiments on the keyboard accessory side with each new iPad Pro generation. Every new accessory has its payoffs and downsides. We can easily say that Magic The keyboard is the most advanced among the ones released so far.

First of all, let's talk about the keyboard mechanism that gives the name of the keyboard case. Apple has commonly called the keyboards Magic Keyboards for iMac keyboards, which contain the keyboard mechanism that it introduced in its notebook computers with the 16-inch MacBook Pro is released at the end of last year. The company aims to offer iPad Pro users the writing experience on their laptops with an accessory with this mechanism.

Magic Keyboard keyboard MacBook Airwe tried it on a laptop for the first time and found it quite good. It offers comfortable writing with its sufficient height from the base and well-adjusted depth. We can make the same comment for the keys of the iPad Pro's Magic Keyboard keyboard. But speaking for the 11-inch model, space is a bit narrower here. This situation limits the size of the keys. However, Apple has tried to keep the size of the frequently used keys almost the same as the keys on the MacBook Air's keyboard.

Due to the narrower space of the Magic Keyboard for the 11-inch iPad Pro version, the trackpad, and the wrist rest areas on both sides of it are narrow. Your wrists will stay out while writing, especially due to the narrow wrist support areas. Your palms can even come to the edge of the keyboard. This situation can cause some discomfort when writing for a long time. The trackpad has enough room for an 11-inch accessory. Like a laptop, this trackpad can be used comfortably. The shape of the pointer in iPadOS is different than what we see on a computer. A small transparent circle is preferred, indicating that it is equivalent to a little touch. The pointer adapts well to the various touch elements in the UI, the intuition is high.

When using the iPad Pro with the Magic Keyboard, it gives the impression that it is floating in the air. Magic Keyboard provides more flexibility compared to the design of the Smart Keyboard accessory that allows it to be used at only two angles. However, we have to say that the angle of movement of the screen is still limited and that more movement areas should be provided. The range of motion available is sufficient, especially when using at the table. However, when you really want to use the iPad Pro on your knees, maybe increasing the angle of the tablet with the keyboard a little more would provide a better view of the screen. By the way, we see that our fingertips occasionally touch the tablet while using the keys on the top row or just below it while writing.

One of the features that make this keyboard remarkable is that it has backlit keys. While in a dark or dimly lit environment, you can continue typing thanks to the backlight of the keyboard. However, you cannot illuminate the brightness of the keyboard keys with a shortcut on the keyboard. You have to navigate the iPad Pro's settings menu to enter the keyboard settings and manually adjust the brightness from here. It goes without saying that keeping the backlight turned on negatively affects the battery life of the iPad Pro.

The hinge part of the Magic Keyboard accessory has a special design. There is a thin and long cylinder in the center and on the left edge of it we see the USB-C port. Thanks to this port, it is possible to charge both iPad Pro. This way, you can keep the tablet's own USB-C port idle, and continue charging the iPad Pro while connecting accessories such as a USB drive or headphones, or your iPhone.

The cylinder in the centerline of the hinge structure is quite heavy. For this reason, the center of gravity shifts towards the back, and when you want to use the screen at the widest angle, the keyboard base lifts up from the front, albeit slightly. It is especially useful to be careful when using it on a laptop.

iPad Pro attaches tightly to Magic Keyboard with a magnetic force. The tablet is difficult to accidentally dislodge. It is very easy to take it out and put it back on. If you want to watch something, play games, or take photos or videos with the camera on the iPad Pro, you can easily detach the tablet from the keyboard case. In fact, Magic Keyboard offers a similar use to dock stations that allow laptops to be used like a desktop computer, with features such as easy insertion and removal of the iPad Pro and charging with the USB-C port. You can stand on the table with the Magic Keyboard open, and you can always connect to the socket from the USB-C port. You can remove the tablet whenever you need it, then you can put it on the Magic Keyboard to keep it charged while keeping it charged. By the way, there is no data flow through the USB-C port. Bad news for those who think they can connect two devices to the iPad Pro at the same time.

It is possible to fold back the Smart Keyboard Folio accessory without removing it from the iPad Pro and continue using the tablet with its case. However, the same is not true for Magic Keyboard. The Magic The keyboard does not allow you to use it like a tablet, the hinge does not have a 360-degree rotation angle, you cannot fold the keyboard back. As a case, however, it is too good to carry the tablet protected in a bag. It protects the iPad Pro well, as the front and back is tough and thick enough. You can keep Apple Pencil connected and charged, as the edges remain open.

Samsung Tab S6 Lite

Apple iPad 10.2 and Samsung Galaxy Tab S5e

 

Samsung Tab S7 Plus and iPad Pro which one is the king?

Operating System and Process.

 Both tablets offer pretty good processors for daily use. Samsung Galaxy S7 Plus powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 Plus. It comes with 8 cores and 7nm Plus build. Whereas Apple iPad Pro is powered by the Apple A12Z Bionic. It comes with octa-core and 8nm build. It is the best Apple CPU until now. The CPU is quite similar to the one that existed in the last generation, Apple iPad Pro 2018, A12X Bionic. Both CPUs are the same, but the new one comes with a little better performance. The Graphics GPU comes with 1 more core

Regarding the GPU, The GPU is the Adreno 650. In Geekbench 5 the CPU scored 4569 points for single-core and 12469 points for multicores.

As for the Apple iPad Pro GPU, The GPU is the Apple GPU (8-core graphics). In Geekbench 5 the CPU scored 1114 points for single-core and 4654 points for multicores.

 According to the operating system, the S7+ runs also on Android 10 with One UI 2.5 from Samsung. The interface of the tablet does not change one iota compared to what can be found on the firm's smartphones. We would still have liked this version of OneUi to have been developed especially for the tablet, like what Apple can offer with iPadOS.

The experience remains easy, intuitive and the shortcuts available thanks to the new S-Pen sometimes make the use a little easier. Especially when it comes to taking a photo, the stylus then acting as a "magic wand". A use that we already found on the Galaxy Tab S6.

The large slab of the tablet takes on its full meaning (except in video) when using DeX mode. The tablet then becomes an ersatz PC, while running the applications already present. A use which is reminiscent of Chrome OS. The partnership forged with Microsoft no longer only concerns xCloud, but also the productivity applications of the American giant. Thus,  work started in Excel on the Tab S7 + can easily be continued on your PC.

In the contrast, the 2020 model iPad Pro started to be released with iPadOS 13.4 and it works with the most current version iPadOS 13.5.1 at the time of publishing this review. With the Apple iPadOS 13.4 update, support for the trackpad and mouse, which concerns the iPad Pro and other iPads, came. Thanks to this, it was possible to use Apple's accessories such as Magic Mouse or Magic Trackpad with tablets. Of course, it is possible to connect and use other mouse and trackpad accessories via Bluetooth as well.

For the first time, we saw that with the iPadOS 13, Apple began to separate the operating system offered on iPhones and iPads. In fact, there were iPad-specific features within iOS, but now Apple is drawing a line on the marketing side of the business. With iPadOS 13, we have seen that the potential of iPad Pro on the hardware side is being used better. The Files application, which was developed and added USB disk drive support, is the first feature that comes to mind that Safari opens the desktop view of the websites by default. The mouse and trackpad support that came with iOS 13 .4 were also important steps in this area.

Now, with the iPadOS 14 coming in the fall, new steps will be taken towards Apple's goal of making the iPad Pro its laptop counterpart. For example, mouse and keyboard support in games can make the iPad Pro more preferred for games such as PUBG Mobile and Fortnite. Rearranging the appearance of Siri on the screen, renewed notification displays for FaceTime or Skype calls can also be described as steps to be taken towards the use of a laptop. On the other hand, although we do not expect it to be very useful in Turkish in the first place, converting texts written with Apple Pencil to plain text and similar functions will make the iPad Pro a more useful productivity tool. IPadOS 14 preliminary review was published after WWDC 2020. We used the 2018 model iPad Pro in the video. We will use iPad Pro 2020 while preparing the iPadOS 14 review video or article, which we plan to publish when iPadOS 14 is released in the fall. Let's give the information about this already.

By the way, let's not go without mentioning the Sidecar feature. With this handy feature that comes with iPadOS 13, if you have a MacBook Pro or Air that supports it, you can turn your device into a second monitor. Working with a second monitor is very important for productive people. iPad Pro will save you an additional monitor cost in this respect. It works very fast with a wired or wireless connection. It also allows you to draw or input data in various applications using Apple Pencil.

Security and Ports.

 For security, Samsung Tab S7 Plus an in-display sensor like we had on the tab s6.  While scanning we notice it makes it more difficult because it's like a thin power button so you kind of have to put your finger everywhere to get a full scan. Interestingly, you can simply tap and just swipe to open. What I really like is that you can even turn it upside down and it works upside down too or sideways.  It also supports the classical unlocking methods such as pattern and passcode.

On the other side, Apple iPad Pro comes with a built-in fingerprint sensor. The performance is perfect. As with most Apple flagships the iPad supports 3D face for unlocking. This method has many enhancements making it super-fast. It is the same one that iPhone 11 Pro Max has. It also supports the same classical unlocking methods such as pattern and passcode.

As of ports, the tablet has no problems with Wi-Fi, regardless of how you hold the tablet - in a case or in your hands. Here Wi-Fi 6, 802.11 a / b / g / n / ac / ax. OTG mode is supported for USB, you can also charge other devices from the tablet (PD 3.0). The device also has Bluetooth version 5.0, but there is no NFC, but it is not needed in such a tablet, you will definitely not carry it with you to pay for something in the store. Whereas the iPad Pro supports Bluetooth 5 and GPS. It also supports VoLTE and WiFi Calling, but it depends on your carrier. It comes with a USB-C port but disappointedly it has no 3.5mm headphone jack.

Battery and charging.

Samsung Galaxy Tab S7 Plus holds a great battery capacity of 10090mAh for better performance. While iPad Pro 2020 holds a great battery capacity of 9720mAh. And both tablets offer fast charging.

  15W fast charging is included. With this charger, you can charge your tablet to 100% in two and a half hours. If you buy 45W fast charging, the total charging time will be reduced to 1.5 hours. You can charge the battery by 54% with such a charge in half an hour. This is a good indicator.

Video playback time on the tablet for up to 14 hours.

On average, my tablet lasts about two days, 6.5-7 hours of the screen (brightness is about 50%, this is enough for the eyes, adaptive backlighting, and a keyboard cover, it also consumes energy). From this time, video viewing does not take the main share, although the same MX Player spends a lot of energy (the built-in player is more economical).

Since I have a fast charge, I have no problems, even after leaving for the whole day with the tablet in the city, it will not be discharged at the most inopportune moment. So here we can say that everything is fine.

On the flip side, According to Apple, this model allows up to 10 hours of internet surfing or watching videos over Wi-Fi. It also offers the opportunity to surf the internet for up to 9 hours over the cellular data network. If you use the screen brightness without increasing it to the maximum level, you will be able to get quite close to the values ​​stated by Apple. Our observations made, while the screen brightness is at maximum, watching videos over the internet for 75 minutes causes a battery consumption of 30 percent. A FaceTime call for about 10 minutes consumes 5 percent battery. As a result, keeping the screen brightness at the highest level has significant effects on battery consumption. If you are at home or at work and do not have the opportunity to charge if you spend most of the day outside,

Just like the previous generation iPad Pro, the 2020 model iPad Pro also allows you to charge other devices via USB-C. If you own an iPhone, you can charge your iPhone with the USB-C to Lightning cable. This feature is useful, it provides the opportunity to use the iPad Pro as a power bank when necessary. In addition, with the 18W charging adapter included in the box, it takes 3 hours for the iPad Pro's battery to reach a full level from 0 to full.

Camera.

Samsung Galaxy Tab S7 Plus has a dual rear camera: 13MP with f\2.0 (wide). it supports the HDR and autofocus for sharper shots and 5MP with f\2.2 ( ultra-wide). You can use the camera to record a 4K video with 30fps. The Tab has an 8MP front-facing camera which also can be used to record a video with 1080@30fps. It has the same photography capabilities as the Tab S6.

In contrast, iPad Pro 2020 has a triple rear camera: 12MP with f\1.8. It supports HDR and autofocus for sharper shots. And 10MP ultra-wide with f\2.4.  It also comes with the LIDER sensor. The rear cameras, though, don't support the Portrait mode despite the LIDER sensor. The LIDER sensor helps with light and space and it works with AR. The iPad can do lots of great things with it. It detects spaces and works with some apps to show furniture at home using AR in high quality. It recognizes measurements. If you care about this LIDER sensor, then you'll enjoy using it. The cameras shoot 4K videos and it works really well, especially if there's lots of light. The Tab has a 7MP front-facing camera with f\2.2. It supports HDR and Face Detection and also it can be used to record a video with 1080@60fps.

Conclusion.

  Such a tablet cannot yet serve as a replacement for a full-fledged computer, but it is already quite close to it. DeX is a bit better and is evolving. With the software update, the Sidekick function will appear when you can use the tablet as an additional screen for a Windows computer or display a picture from the main screen on it. Collaboration with Microsoft is paying off.

I don't need a tablet, but looking at the Tab S7 + and working with it, I kept repeating this: "I don't need a tablet." The device turned out to be very interesting both for work and for entertainment. And its capabilities will last for many years, which is important for those who will buy it. Cool model without any drawbacks that can cross out perception. A true flagship among tablets.

Conversely,  when you compare the 2020 iPad Pros with their predecessors released in 2018, you may think that the differences are not much. You are not wrong in this regard either. However, when we look in more detail, we see that in the previous generation iPad Pro, the gaps that users can see as deficiencies have been closed. For example, 128 GB of storage space at the entry-level is a significant plus. LiDAR sensors can also be considered as an investment in the future. We will see more of the augmented reality applications in the future and your tablet will be ready for this now. Improving microphone quality is also a good improvement for those who like to take voice memos or consider using the iPad Pro in their interviews. Since the steps taken on the processor side are small, the situation does not change much on the performance side, but 6 GB of RAM is a significant gain. Regardless, the iPad Pro continues to deliver good performance for a tablet, and even challenges many laptops.

iPad Pro alone becomes a powerful content consumption device. You can also take many steps on the productivity side by using your fingers and the on-screen keyboard. However, you also need to invest in accessories to turn this tablet into a true production device or to become a replacement for the laptop, as Apple put it. This increases the total cost of the product. However, if your budget is sufficient, we recommend you to get both Apple Pencil and Magic Keyboard. This would add around 3500USD on top of the cost of the tablet itself, but in return, it would increase the tablet's experience several times. What do you think? Can these tablets replace a laptop?
