I saw a review showing the Apple Ipad Pro 9.7 which is exactly one year old beating the S3 by a small amount. See video H E R E

My roommate has the Apple Ipad Pro 12 version and it looks all washed out compared to my S2. I like have the freedom with my S2 to change stuff and move it around vs my last Apple Ipad but I noticed the Apple has a better resale value as well.

I will be heading down today to look at my local BestBuy store to compare the two or just wait for the Apple Pro 2 to come out.. But I might change my mind when I see the S3 and the Super AMOLED display with HDR..

Thanks guys..

The S2 doesn't support HDR content so there is no way to compare them.

The S3 uses the same AMOLED screen as the S2 but with HDR support (and pen support of course)

I saw that video, for me tablets are about functionality, not benchmarks. There are other reviews where the S3 is slightly faster (given it has better GPU, more RAM etc.). Really depends on the application. I have a Pro 9.7 that is provided via work and find it to be decent although the S3 screen is far superior. Plenty of youtube reviews with side by side video comparisons, very obvious. Otherwise the IPad still has a very decent screen. There are currently no apps that the S3 can't easily manage including all current games. The Pro when it came out was going up against a $300 cheaper S2.

The S3 has HDR, USB 3.0, a micro SD slot and of course its amazing AMOLED screen. It also includes a much more accurate S-Pen (higher sensitivity compared to the pen for the IPad Pro and the Surface). They are roughly the same price for the 32GB models but the pen is included and you can grab a 128GB Micro SD card for about $30.


The only issue with them currently is the stock case is awful (the keyboard case is slightly better due to direct magnetic grab at the pogo pins). There are a few aftermarket cases out that are fine (And cheap of course).

They should have gone the route of the tab Pro case (I linked a pic of mine in this thread). Not sure what the plan was with a magnetic "file folder" style case.

They do not make a wrap around case for the S3 as there is no way to connect it via the nipples that the S2 had. I assume its because there was no way to mount the nipple locking system into a glass back.
