Looks cheap to me. Possibly could be from the picture quality though.

Keep in mind as well as this is most likely a prototype, so it's not going to be the most photogenic thing ever. Plus, it isn't even clean looking so that takes away from whatever design beauty there might be.

Also keep in mind the rumored targeted price range at around $300. You might not get an edge-to-edge screen or anything fancy in terms of design for that price, but I think Google is showing that it's not just so much the design as what the device is capable of doing. And like CellularNinja said, this is probably a prototype that we are seeing. It's pretty evident by the scratches and wear on the backside as well as the front (someone has been playing with device an awful lot it seems like).

Your comment might be true for certain Samsung Phones, but at least they can make up for it in performance, something apple is far behind on

"Class" is the most important thing for you when you are buying device?
You are buying functionality or "class"?
How you identify which device has "class" and which hasn't?

I'm just curious.

His definition of class is an Apple logo.

ugly? may be but i would rather get a phone/tablet that is more functional than a "classy" one. that's why Samsung is doing great despite their ugly designs.

Lol If you drop an iPhone 5 you will have to buy a 100$ for a new back cover... And if you drop a plastic device you will have to buy 5-10$ back cover... Money doesn't grow on tree, do you now it ?

I'm not a fanboy. I'm an iOS and android user, please explain how every other tablet has beaten the iPad other than cuz u don't like it, and prefer something else. Nothing has beaten the iPad, and it hasn't beaten the others. If the one u have suits u then it's the best for, and to u.

If you used iOS and android, you would clearly see android offers more features. What is your reason that your prefer iOS? Stability and Smoothness? This isn't 2009, both are at par. Ease of use? More like dumbed down and features not put.

iPad is a glorious product but mostly for entertainment purposes. It doesn't have productivity as that of a Note, nor is as powerful as a Transformer. Its best for games and videos. iPad Mini is a disappointment plus the upcoming Surface is a beast. What makes the iPad relevant now are only its apps.

Oh, and one more thing. Sales that r not returned represent satisfaction. The bottom line for any "for profit company" is sales not returned. Y do u think Samsung boasted about 20 million gs3 sales? Cuz that's the bottom line dude, Sammy, apple, Htc, Motorola, and whoever else aren't giving away devices. They sell them, and hope u don't return them. Think about bro sales r what's its all about.

What do you mean by "beaten?" Are you counting sales or features? I'm just curious what metrics you are using to determine what tablet is better.

110. belovedson (Posts: 832; Member since: 30 Nov 2010)


what difference does it make if it appears ugly or not? its going to be sitting inside a case anyways. a case makes just about any electric product look like the next item

also i really don't see how some of you consider the ipad attractive. i own one and its just a square with a circle dingle berry in the middle.

Samsung simply make better ergonomic products. for example ever since i have sold the nexus lte i'm constantly looking for the power button on the right hand side. having the power button on top is just stupid.

that's just of many things. i am positive if i have this nexus pad it would feel so much better in the hands than the ipad. the one button thing is incredibly incredibly annoying.

Thinner case?

Yes the GPU is superior is double the performance the ipad 3 offered which was already the highest in the industry.

is it double? i don't think it was quite that much, it think it was like half of the strength of the MP4 more max.

actually if this has a Exynos 5250 then it will destroy the iPad in terms of power. it will destroy EVERYTHING in terms of power.

69. acandia91 (Posts: 1; Member since: 26 Oct 2012)


Whats the point for all the power when it doesnt really have the apps to prove it.
Dont get me wrong it could beat the ipad, but consumers these days don't care about power.

Thats why i have an ipad because i could play amazing games in the app store..

71. KingKurogiii (Posts: 5621; Member since: 23 Oct 2011)


maybe you should get your head out of all the apps and really think about what draws out the power in these Tablets. because of a powerful GPU like this this Tablet is going to be rocking a 2560x1600 resolution display and then what games that do come out optimized for this SoC are going to be at Xbox 360 Launch Title level, that's not an exaggeration. look up the demos for the 5250, you'll find videos and then of course 1080p video streaming will be smoother, web browsing will be excellent, downloads and installations instant and more, that's just all i could think of right now. typical iPad owner...what about the apps? heh.

The iPad is rectangular with curved edges. Same design as the iPod, iTouch, iPhone, i(insert anything here).

You're already with the cool kids since you bough an Apple product. You don't need to come here and start trolling.

I agree. Too bad we can't all share in such a simple design, because evidently the Galaxy Tab looks exactly like the iPad, despite having a different aspect ratio, a Samsung logo, and no iPad logo.

If i didn't already have an iPad2 (meh, but adequate for now) and a Nexus7 (yes!), then I would definitely get one - no question. I'm sure I'll end up with some version of it at some point in the future.

I am an Android fan, but the iPad looks better than this. Oh, Samsung.. The brown/bronze doesn't do any favor to the already weird shape of this tablet.
