iPad Air and iPad mini with Retina Display
, the 8.4” and 10.5” Galaxy Tab S tablets share the same display resolution and processor/GPU, which means they mainly differ in screen and battery size.

Both tablets of course run Android 4.4 KitKat.
Besides the differences in screen size, the 8.4” model comes with a 4,900 mAh battery while the 12.5” model has a larger 7,900 mAh battery.
Both models are also thinner and lighter than their respectively iPad counterparts. The 10.5” Galaxy Tab S weighs 465g and is 6.6mm thick compared to 469g and 7.5mm for the iPad Air. Likewise, the 8.4” Galaxy Tab S weighs 294g and is 6.6mm thick compared to 331g and 7.5mm for the iPad mini with Retina Display.
