When you talk about tablets, it’s almost a certainty that you will mention Samsung at least once, as the Korean manufacturer is on top of the market, right next to Apple and its iPad devices. The tablet market provides numerous options from various manufacturers, but Samsung in itself could be an entire tablet market if you look at how many devices it shoots out its production line each year. In this article, we’re taking a look at two of Samsung’s tablet devices, namely the Galaxy Tab S 10.5 and the Galaxy Note Pro 12.2.
