Despite being a lot thinner than its predecessor, the iPad Air has kept the same wonderful battery life that will keep it powered on for quite a while. It's an 8820 mAh battery unit inside that is non removable, of course. The battery of the Note 10.1 2014 is slightly smaller with its 8220 mAh, and it's also sealed, meaning that you cannot replace it. Overall, the iPad Air seems to fare visibly better in terms of battery life, due to both the larger capacity and more optimized operating system.


At the end of this tough and heavy fight, the iPad Air has managed to reinforce its position as the leading mobile tablet available on the market. With its wonderful design and blazing-fast performance, it really has no weak spots in comparison with the rest of the offerings on the market, and that includes the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 Edition.

Samsung's tablet is a fine gadget with a lot of capabilities, and it'll prove to be quite useful if you're really into TouchWiz Android and the S Pen stylus, but if that's not the case, then we see no solid reason why you should pick this one instead of the iPad Air, which can offer you so much more entertainment and productivity, courtesy of its richer application ecosystem.
