Google Nexus 9 vs Sony Xperia Z2 Tablet: Tablet Battle

Hi guys, welcome back!

The first time Google introduced the first generation of its Nexus 7 tablet, it suddenly became a huge hit around the tablet market and in fact, could bring a significant recognition to Asus and especially Google. Last year, however, Google decided to not refresh its Nexus 7 tablet just like it did 2 years ago in 2013. Instead, Google came up with something new that was more interesting than before – another Nexus tablet aimed at productivity users. And that is Google Nexus 9.

Similar just like the first-gen Nexus 7 tablet that Google released in 2012, this Nexus 9 tablet is powered by NVIDIA’s mobile processor. However, as a new-released tablet, of course Google Nexus 7 receives the latest and greatest processor from NVIDIA – which is Tegra K1 64-bit dual-core Denver processor. Interestingly, despite having a powerful processor for gaming, Google decided to introduce this device as a productivity tablet – as shown by the keyboard folio case that Google launches specifically for this tablet.

Google Nexus 9 vs Sony Xperia Z2 Tablet benchmarks and gaming performance

Well, that’s actually the reason why today i’m really interested to bring up again this Nexus 9 tablet into my next comparison review. This time, however, the tablet that i want to pit side-by-side against this Nexus 9 tablet is coming from Sony – Sony Xperia Z2 Tablet. Actually, this Sony’s tablet is still a new-gen model from its last year tablet portfolio. So i think it’s still relevant to compare between these 2 tablets in this review.

Well, if you’re also interested to know more about these 2 tablets and see how they fare against each other, including my take on their gaming performance, then here you go, my comparison review between Sony Xperia Z2 Tablet vs Google Nexus 9.

Introduction

Both Sony Xperia Z2 Tablet and Google Nexus 9 actually run on 2 entirely different categories - Sony Xperia Z2 Tablet is a pure media-consumption tablet, while Google Nexus 9 is more on productivity side.

However, there is one in common that probably makes these 2 devices similar. And that is their hardware package, which is more than good for gaming. Sony Xperia Z2 Tablet with its Snapdragon 801 and Adreno 330 GPU is of course powerful to handle the latest games, it goes the same with Nexus 9 with its Tegra K1 dual-core 64-bit processor.

However, in terms of overall quality, i think between these 2 tablets, they both have their own strengths as well as weaknesses against each other. And this is the reason why it could be interesting to explore more about the entire quality of these 2 tablet, from their display, camera, processor, GPU, performance, UI, design, build quality and many more.

On paper, it’s no brainer that Google Nexus 9 looks more superior than Sony Xperia Z2 Tablet especially given that this Nexus device is powered by a staggering 192-core Kepler GPU, which means it will have more powerful graphical performance than the one found on Sony’s tablet. But even so, both tablets are actually still great equally for playing games.

But the questions remain, with all of the high-grade specs and powerful graphical performance found on both tablets, which one between Sony Xperia Z2 Tablet and Google Nexus 9 that deserves to be the best gaming tablet in this comparison review? Which one between these 2 devices that is a better tablet in the whole aspect? Is it worth it to buy any of these tablets, especially with their gaming performance?

Well, hopefully we’re about to find out more about the answers of these questions at the end of this review. So be sure to stick around!

Design

Around the smartphone market, both Sony and HTC have been known for their expertise in making premium quality devices. And that shows again perfectly on their latest-gen tablets - Sony Xperia Z2 Tablet and Google Nexus 9 respectively. However, between the 2, i think i have to side on Sony’s tablet in terms of design and build quality. Well, that’s because not only does this tablet have the water and dust resistant certification, but it also has an impressive design and solid build quality. And this really contradicts with HTC’s homemade Nexus 9.

Despite being a flagship tablet from HTC – which is mostly known for its premium quality devices –, the build quality of this tablet surprisingly is not that good especially compared to Sony Xperia Z2 Tablet. It design looks gorgeous, no argue to that. However, something that keeps bugging me with this tablet is its rear cover.

According to many reviews on YouTube, including TheVerge and PhoneArena, the rear cover of Nexus 9 is really prone to catch fingerprints and human grease. And this cannot be tolerated because flagship high-end devices mostly have great build quality – like iPad, Samsung flagship tablets, LG G Pad or Sony Xperia Z2 Tablet. And this really contradicts with Sony Xperia Z2 Tablet that has a great build quality that feels really sturdy on hands and comfortable to hold, plus not prone to catch fingerprints. And the capability of this device to “swim” inside the water for 30 minutes really makes it a far better offering than Nexus 9 tablet.

The design of Sony Xperia Z2 Tablet is actually not a huge departure from the predecessor - Sony Xperia Z Tablet. It still inherits the sharp looking edges, metal trim around the side of bezels and of course clean dark black finish all over the place. It looks really elegant, premium and of course, deserves to be positioned alongside other flagship devices on the market, even the iPads.

But even so, there are still something to appreciate from the design of Google Nexus 9. And that is the dual-speaker grills on the front side. So similar just like HTC’s flagship smartphone – HTC One M8 -, the front side of Nexus 9 also has this dual-front-speaker-grills on the left and right side (in landscape mode).

According to theVerge, PhoneArena and Marques Brownlee (hopefully, i can get from other sources in the future), these dual-front-speaker grills really contribute to its good sound quality. And this really makes the experience of watching movies or playing games more realistic because the sound is really loud and clear. And even the reviewer of theVerge had hopes that Apple would also implement the same dual-front-speaker thing to iPads in the near future.

    As 2 flagship tablets, of course both Sony Xperia Z2 Tablet and Google Nexus 9 are really prepared when it comes to hardware specs. However, between these 2 devices, i think Google’s tablet looks much shinier than Sony Xperia Z2 Tablet on the sector of hardware, especially in terms of performance. However, both devices can still be considered as equal on this sector because they both have their own strengths and weaknesses as well against each other.

    Google Nexus 9 comes with an 8.9-inch display sporting the “iPad Retina” 1536x2048 pixel resolution, a dual-core Tegra K1 processor with 64-bit architecture, 2GB of RAM, a staggering 192-core Kepler GPU, 8MP and 1.6MP cameras back and front with LED flash, a pretty huge 6700mAh battery and some other standard features, including LTE connectivity.

    Meanwhile, Sony Xperia Z2 Tablet has a full HD 1920x1200 pixel resolution on its 10.1-inch display, a quad-core Snapdragon 801 processor, 3GB of RAM, 8.1MP and 2.2MP rear-facing cameras, NFC, IP58 certification, microSD card slot for up to 64GB, a 6000mAh battery and some other standard features. Not to mention, Android 4.4.2 Kit Kat comes out of the box, while Google Nexus 9 comes pre-installed with Android 5.0 Lollipop.

    Between the 2, i think i have to side on Sony Xperia Z2 Tablet because the overall quality of this device is just slightly better than Google Nexus 9 (despite having less powerful processor and GPU, plus a lower-resolution screen). However, Sony’s tablet has microSD card slot, NFC, bigger 3GB of RAM, better cameras and not to mention, IP58 certification that makes it a tougher challenger for Nexus 9.

    Screen

    On paper, Google Nexus 9 may look more superior than Sony Xperia Z2 Tablet. Its higher-resolution screen (1536x2048 pixels as “Retina” display on iPads) looks much sharper than the full HD 1920x1200 pixel display found on Sony Xperia Z2 Tablet. But apparently, that’s just on paper. In the real life implementation, however, it’s actually the display of Sony Xperia Z2 Tablet that is more superior than the higher-resolution screen of Nexus 9.

    According to theVerge, the “Retina” display of Nexus 9 surprisingly is not nearly as nice looking as the “Retina” display of iPads. And this is pretty weird because Google Nexus 9 has the same exact screen resolution of iPads – which is 1536x2048 pixels. Still based on theVerge, the screen of Nexus 9 also has this visible gap between the glass and LCD, the colors often look washed out and there’s a visible backlight on the side of the screen.

    And it’s not just theVerge, Marques Brownlee from MKBHD also agrees that the screen of Nexus 9 has this visible backlight especially when the screen goes black, which shows some weird looking colors around the side of the screen. But apart from that, the screen of Nexus 9 is still relatively good and sharp for a flagship device, if not as great as iPads.

    This really contradicts with the screen of Sony Xperia Z2 Tablet. As a matter of fact, the display of this tablet is a huge improvement from the screen of predecessor - Sony Xperia Z Tablet, which has bad viewing angle, mediocre color saturation and the colors look washed out, similar just like the screen of Sony Xperia Z smartphone actually.

    But all of that is gone now and has been significantly improved on the second-gen Sony Xperia Z2 Tablet. It now looks really sharp and vibrant, it has better viewing angle, great color saturation and the colors now look more popping out than before.

    So between these 2 tablets, i think it’s pretty weird to say that Sony Xperia Z2 Tablet has a better display quality than the screen of Google Nexus 9, despite having lower resolution than the “Retina” display of Nexus 9. Google's tablet may have the 'sharpness', but Sony's device has the 'quality'. So it's just not about quantity, the quality also matters.

    User Interface

    On all Nexus devices, Google still keeps the tradition going. And that is the use of stock vanilla Android UI on Google Nexus 9. On this latest-gen model, however, Google brings the latest and greatest Android 5.0 Lollipop and makes it the world’s first tablet shipping with Android Lollipop. Meanwhile, Sony Xperia Z2 Tablet is running on the other side of the road. It comes with the older-gen Android 4.4.2 KitKat out of the box (but i believe, it’s upgradeable to Lollipop) and its UI is fully-customized with Sony’s usual Xperia skins and features.

    So as a result, the UI of Sony Xperia Z2 Tablet obviously has a lot more features and attractive visual presentations than the stock Android UI of Nexus 9. This is probably why Sony’s tablet has a much bigger 3GB of RAM than the one found on Google’s tablet – which is only 2GB. But even so, both tablets are really good equally in terms of software.

    But of course, between the 2, i think i will go with Sony Xperia Z2 Tablet because first of all, i’ve been a huge fan of Sony Xperia UI. It looks really elegant with its dark-themed live wallpaper and i also like all the new added features, like multiwindow mode that allows users to float many apps on the same screen.

    On the other hand, the stock Android 5.0 Lollipop UI on Nexus 9 is more prominent with the “Material Design” that Google introduced a few months ago in 2014 along with the announcement of Android L. So there will be huge improvements over the previous-gen KitKat especially on the entire design and visual presentations as well. Both tablets are actually great with their own UIs, however, when Sony Xperia Z2 Tablet receives the Lollipop update, i believe it’s going to offer a lot more features and better looking more useful UI than on the Nexus 9.

    Back to Top
    The gaming performance of both tablets are actually good 'on the same level'. They both are equipped with the best mobile processors on the market to date and they’re also more than capable to handle even the latest graphically demanding games on the market right now, even full highest graphics. No argue about that.

    However, if compared side-by-side against each other, of course, Google Nexus 9 is definitely the clear winner here against Sony Xperia Z2 Tablet. And that’s because this tablet is powered by a dual-core Tegra K1 processor with 64-bit architecture and a staggering 192-core Kepler GPU. And thanks to Google’s decision to use stock Android UI on this tablet, this really helps a lot in making it more powerful for playing games.

    And according to Epic game engine developers, Tegra K1 processor is so powerful it’s even capable to deliver the same graphical performance as today’s desktops or PCs. And this can be clearly seen on the capability of Nexus 9 to handle some console/PC-quality games like Trine 2, Oddworld Stranger's Wrath and Half Life 2 that actually are ported officially from PS3 and PC, along with all of their graphics and visual effects. This really contradicts with Sony Xperia Z2 Tablet that is only able to play Android games.

    It’s not just the gaming performance that makes Nexus 9 a better gaming tablet than Sony Xperia Z2 Tablet, but also its gaming experience as well. One of them is its good sound quality, thanks to the dual-front-speaker grills found on this HTC’s homemade device. So according to many reviews on YouTube, this dual-front-speakers really contributes to its good sound quality. It’s really loud and clear, and it really makes the experience of playing games on this tablet more realistic especially for gamers.

    So in terms of gaming experience as a whole, i think it’s quite obvious that Google Nexus 9 is a much better gaming tablet than Sony Xperia Z2 Tablet. It has far more powerful gaming performance, great sound quality, full support from mobile and even console/PC game developers and not to mention, it has a much sharper display than Sony Xperia Z2 Tablet.

    But even so, as mentioned above, both Sony Xperia Z2 Tablet and Google Nexus 9 are still great equally for playing games. Google’s tablet may be more powerful in graphical performance, but for today’s standards, both devices are still ‘on the same level’ when it comes to playing games.

    Anyway guys, if you want to know more about the gaming performance of Google Nexus 9 and Sony Xperia Z2 Tablet, including what games that will run on these tablets, check out my YouTube video playlist or Pinterest page. :)

    Cameras

    Through Nexus 9 tablet, Google surprisingly made a huge improvement on its camera, especially compared to other Nexus tablets. And this is actually not shocking because HTC – which is one that manufacturers this device – has years of experience on the camera department of its devices (especially with Ultra Pixel technology).

    So as a result, the 8MP rear-facing camera on this tablet is able to take some decent quality shots. In fact, according to theVerge and Marques Brownlee, the photos taken with this tablet are actually quite good, although not as good as the iSight camera on iPads. But at least, Google is on the right track if it wants to make a true challenger for iPad in the future.

    It goes the same with Sony Xperia Z2 Tablet actually. As one of the camera suppliers for most tablet manufacturers like Samsung or even Apple, of course, the 8.1MP rear-facing camera on this device is more than capable to take some decent quality shots. In fact, if you love photography, you will feel at home when using the cameras on this tablet. Too bad there’s no LED flash found on this tablet, while Google Nexus 9 has it. So in low light condition, the photos or videos might not look that impressive.

    Battery Life

    Sony Xperia Z2 Tablet is powered by a 6000mAh battery inside, while Google Nexus 9 is equipped with a much larger 6700mAh battery. This is probably not that surprising because Google’s tablet has a much higher-resolution screen, plus more power hungry processor and GPU. However, in moderate use, any of these devices are more than happier to accompany you in a solid day on a single charge of 100%.

    But of course, if you are a power user and you’re gonna use any of these tablets to do some heavy intense tasks without resting the screen at all, their battery life could drop drastically to just around 4 to 6 hours the longest.

    According to GSMarena, Sony Xperia Z2 Tablet could survive in 13 hours for talk time and 188 hours for music play. Meanwhile, Google Nexus 9 has a promised 9 hours 30 minutes of battery life in talk time (multimedia). This is probably due to the fact that Nexus 9 has a higher-resolution screen and a more power-hungry processor than Sony Xperia Z2 Tablet. Besides, Sony’s tablet is also equipped with this battery saving technology on its screen. So this probably helps a lot in making this tablet last longer than Nexus 9.

    My Personal Opinions

    So in my final conclusion of this comparison review, i think it’s pretty hard to determine which one between these 2 tablets that is a better tablet in the whole aspect. I mean, Google Nexus 9 may have a higher-resolution screen than Sony Xperia Z2 Tablet. However, in the real life implementation, the display of Nexus 9 apparently is not as good as it is on paper.

    The colors often look washed out, there’s visible air gap between the glass and LCD, and there’s this visible backlight on the side of the screen. And this really contradicts with the display of Sony Xperia Z2 Tablet that looks really gorgeous and sharp, and it’s a huge improvement over the predecessor.

    However, on the sector of gaming performance, of course Google Nexus 9 is more powerful than Sony Xperia Z2 Tablet. And it’s not just on paper, but also in the real life execution.

    Both of these tablets may be capable to handle some latest heavy games like Modern Combat 5 or GTA San Andreas in buttery smooth performance and in full highest graphics. However, Google Nexus 9 also has all the graphical power to ‘execute’ some console-quality games like Trine 2, Oddworld Stranger's Wrath or Half Life 2 that both are ported officially from PS3 and PC respectively.

    And this probably cannot be found on Sony Xperia Z2 Tablet. Not to mention, thanks to NVIDIA’s close partnership with many famous giant game developers like Activision, Ubisoft or EA, this will really help a lot to convince these game makers to port their popular titles specifically to Tegra K1 tablets like Google Nexus 9 in the future.

    But then again, despite not having the same powerful gaming performance as Nexus 9, Sony Xperia Z2 Tablet is actually still superior in terms of cameras, display, design, battery life, features, UI, movie watching experience and it also comes with microSD card slot for up to 64GB to accompany its 16GB of internal storage (while Nexus 9 doesn’t have it).

    So i think it really makes the overall quality of Sony Xperia Z2 Tablet much better than Nexus 9, despite having lower-resolution screen and less-powerful gaming performance.

    However, at the end of the day, the decision to buy any of these devices will come down to your personal preference and needs as well. So if you’re looking for a solid gaming tablet that is also great for doing productivity stuff, then Google Nexus 9 might be your answer here. It has powerful “gaming” processor and it also comes with keyboard folio case (sold separately on Google Play Store).

    Meanwhile, if you’re only looking for a pure media-consumption device that is also good for playing games, then Sony Xperia Z2 Tablet is definitely your destination here.

    Xiaomi Mi Pad 7.9 vs Amazon Fire HDX 8.9: Tablet Battle

    Hi guys, welcome back to this site!

    In almost all of my comparison reviews, Xiaomi Mi Pad 7.9 has always been my favorite compared to most flagship devices like Google Nexus 9 or even the iPads. And that’s not so shocking because, first of all, this Xiaomi device is equipped with the latest and greatest mobile processor from NVIDIA – Tegra K1 processor – and also, it comes with some important elements that cannot be found Nexus 9 or even the iPads, like microSD card slot or full-featured UI.

    Xiaomi Mi Pad 7.9 vs Amazon Fire HDX 8.9 benchmarks and gaming performance

    That’s the reason why today i’m still interested to bring up this Xiaomi Mi Pad 7.9 in my next comparison review against other competing tablet. The rival, however, is coming from a company known mostly for its large online retailer website in the world – Amazon. And given that Xiaomi’s device is still a new-gen device released a few months ago, i think it would be relevant if this comparison review also involves another new-generation tablet from Amazon – Amazon Fire HDX 8.9.

    Well, if you’re interested to know more about these 2 devices and see how they fare against each other, including my take on their gaming performance, then here you go, my comparison review between Xiaomi Mi Pad 7.9 and Amazon Fire HDX 8.9 (2014 edition).

    Introduction

    The first time Amazon released the first-generation Kindle Fire tablet, it didn’t become popular straight away. It took around a year or so for this tablet series to finally manage to be the best selling device in Amazon’s website (on Electronic section). But that’s quite different with what happened with Xiaomi through its tablet - Xiaomi Mi Pad 7.9.

    Thanks to Xiaomi’s brilliant hunger marketing strategy (by selling limited amount units of devices in limited time through flash sales every week or so), this company has managed to sell million units of its tablet all across the world (especially in Asia). If i’m not mistaken, around a few months ago, this company has already shipped around 7 million units of Xiaomi Mi Pad 7.9 tablets.

    The reason why this Chinese-based company has managed to sell million units of its tablet is probably its affordable price tag. However, despite being an affordable tablet, it doesn’t straightly mean that Xiaomi Mi Pad 7.9 really sucks in terms of quality and specs. Well, that’s so wrong. Besides having some of the best hardware specs on today’s tablet market, Xiaomi Mi Pad 7.9 impressively also excels when it comes to overall quality.

    Its display quality looks sharp and gorgeous, its cameras take good quality shots, its software and features are awesome, and its gaming performance is really powerful, even the best on the market to date, especially thanks to Tegra K1 processor inside this tablet – which is made for gaming.

    It actually goes the same with Amazon Fire HDX 8.9. As a flagship tablet from Amazon, it’s no brainer that the hardware specs of this tablet should be on par with other high-end tablets on the market, like Samsung GALAXY Tab S 8.4, Google Nexus 9 or even iPad mini Retina 3. And that’s what happens exactly on this Amazon’s tablet. It has the highest-resolution screen on the market today, a powerful processor and GPU, huge RAM, good quality camera and long lasting battery.

    On paper, both Xiaomi Mi Pad 7.9 and Amazon Fire HDX 8.9 are equally powerful. But the questions remain. With all of the high-grade specs and powerful performance found on both devices, which one between Xiaomi Mi Pad 7.9 and Amazon Fire HDX 8.9 that deserves to be the best gaming tablet in this comparison review? Which one between these 2 tablets that is a better tablet in the whole aspect? Is it worth it to buy any of these tablets, especially with their gaming performance?

    Well, hopefully we’re about to find out more about the answers of these questions at the end of this review. So be sure to stick around!

    Design

    In terms of design, Xiaomi Mi Pad 7.9 may not have the originality compared to Amazon Fire HDX 8.9. It looks really similar with iPad mini Retina and in fact, it looks like an iPad mini clone, especially with the same size of bezels and aspect ratio. However, something that should still be appreciated from this tablet is actually its build quality.

    Despite using plastic polycarbonate material, the build quality of Xiaomi Mi Pad 7.9 is surprisingly good, it feels really sturdy on hands, comfortable to hold and it doesn’t feel as cheap as glossy plastic on other cheap Chinese tablets. Not to mention, it's also not prone to catch fingerprints.

    Amazon Fire HDX 8.9 (2014)

    On the other hand, Amazon Fire HDX 8.9 actually looks really generic with its sharp looking design. To be perfectly honest, when it comes to design, there’s nothing to write home about on this device. It looks solid with its sharp rectangular corners, but there’s nothing new on this device, especially compared to other Android counterparts out there on the market, which have similar generic looking design.

    The good thing is, its front bezels that blend perfectly with the black dark screen really makes it look elegant. However, on the rear-side, this tablet looks really cheap especially with its weird shapes all over the place.

    Between Xiaomi Mi Pad 7.9 and Amazon Fire HDX 8.9, of course i will side on Xiaomi’s tablet. It may look really identical with iPad mini Retina, however, its solid build quality is actually the one that really impresses a lot from this device. It feels really sturdy, solid, comfortable to hold and it’s not prone to catch finger prints.

      Both tablets are high-end flagship tablets from both companies, and both are also the new-gen devices released within few months ago. So when it comes to hardware, there’s no doubt that both Xiaomi Mi Pad 7.9 and Amazon Fire HDX 8.9 are shipping with new-gen hardware for today's standards.

      Xiaomi Mi Pad 7.9 is really prominent with its Tegra K1 quad-core processor, “Retina” 1536x2048 pixel display, 192-core Kepler GPU, 8MP and 5MP cameras back and front, a huge 6700mAh battery and microSD card slot for up to 128GB. Meanwhile, Amazon Fire HDX 8.9 also looks great with its 2.5K display (2560x1600 pixel resolution), a quad-core Snapdragon 805 processor, Adreno 420 GPU, 8MP rear-facing camera and 2GB of RAM.

      Between these 2 tablets, i think Xiaomi Mi Pad 7.9 looks slightly more superior than Amazon Fire HDX 8.9, especially on the sector of graphical and gaming performance. It has a staggering 192-core GPU, huge microSD card slot availability, 5MP front-facing camera and full-featured UI. However, Amazon Fire HDX 8.9 actually is also on the same level in specs, especially with a much higher-resolution 2.5K display, powerful Adreno 420 GPU and longer battery life (thanks to its light-weight UI and software).

      Screen

      As far as the screen goes, it’s definitely Amazon Fire HDX 8.9 that has a much sharper and better display than the one found on Xiaomi Mi Pad 7.9. But it’s not only on paper though, but also in the real life implementation. In fact, according to display benchmark tests held by some tech sites, the screen of Amazon Fire HDX amazingly manages to top all of the flagship tablets on the market, even the iPads with its “Retina” display.

      Amazon Fire HDX 8.9 is equipped with an 8.9-inch display sporting the 2560x1600 pixel resolution (or known as 2.5K display). On the other hand, Xiaomi Mi Pad 7.9 is sporting the “Retina” 1536x2048 pixel resolution on its 7.9-inch display. so when it comes to sharpness, it’s no brainer that Amazon’s tablet is the clear winner here.

      However, it doesn’t mean that the display of Xiaomi Mi Pad 7.9 is really mediocre compared to Amazon’s device. Well, that’s so wrong because with the same exact resolution as today’s iPad, the display of Xiaomi Mi Pad 7.9 looks really gorgeous and insanely sharp, in fact, it has good viewing angle and great color saturation just like on the iPads. And this is not so surprising given that the screen of Xiaomi devices – including this tablet – is supplied by Sharp, which also is one of the screen suppliers of Apple devices.

      However, if pitted side-by-side against Amazon Fire HDX 8.9, of course, this Xiaomi’s tablet is not nearly as nice looking as the display of Amazon’s tablet.

      User Interface

      On the software side, both Xiaomi Mi Pad 7.9 and Amazon Fire HDX 8.9 actually run on the entirely different sides of the road here. Xiaomi Mi Pad 7.9 comes with a fully-optimized much heavier UI called MIUI – filled with many useful features and awesome visual presentations -, while Amazon Fire HDX 8.9 is more prominent with its light-weight simplified Android UI, which strips off many of standard features on stock Android UI. So the UIs of both tablets look and work entirely different.

      For me personally, however, i think the MIUI of Xiaomi Mi Pad 7.9 is more attractive than the Sangria UI found on Amazon’s tablet as it has a lot more features, tasks plus cool visual presentations all over its pre-loaded apps. And this is the reason why the UI of this device takes a lot of space in the memory/RAM. But the good thing is, Xiaomi has already tackled that issue by providing a huge 2GB of RAM on this device, giving more free memory for users in default

      But even so, the Sangria UI of Amazon Fire HDX 8.9 can actually be quite interesting to use, especially for those people who only want to buy the latest contents straight away from Amazon. It’s really simple to use and it doesn’t really require some complicated learning curve from users. In fact, i believe vast majority of Fire HDX 8.9 users are more than able to understand instantly how to use this tablet even when they first got it out from the box.

      So it now depends on you. If you really like to use Android OS and all of its features, then you will feel at home when using Xiaomi Mi Pad 7.9. On the other hand, if you’re only looking for a great and simple-to-use media-consumption tablet for enjoying Amazon contents, then Amazon Fire HDX 8.9 is definitely your destination here.

      Back to Top
      Both Xiaomi Mi Pad 7.9 and Amazon Fire HDX 8.9 are actually great equally for playing games. In fact, these 2 tablets are 2 of the best gaming tablets on the market to date, even alongside latest-gen iPads or Samsung GALAXY Tab S series. They are more than capable to execute any Android games and even the most graphically demanding titles like GTA San Andreas, Asphalt 8: Airborne or Modern Combat 5, all in buttery smooth performance and even in full highest graphics.

      However, between the 2, i think it’s quite obvious that Xiaomi Mi Pad 7.9 is the one that really stands out here in gaming performance than Amazon Fire HDX 8.9. And it’s only because it has a staggering 192-core Kepler GPU on it, but this device is also fully supported by many mobile and even console/PC game developers.

      And this means, besides great for playing future next-gen Android games, Xiaomi Mi Pad 7.9 will also be capable to play some console-quality games that are actually ported straight away from console and PC. In fact, currently there are 3 popular console and PC titles that have been available to play on Tegra K1 tablets like Xiaomi Mi Pad 7.9 – for example: Trine 2 (PS3), Oddworld Stranger's Wrath and Half Life 2 (PC). And impressively, these 3 games use the actual graphic and visual effect resource from the original games.

      But, this is not so surprising because even according to Epic Engine developers, Tegra K1 processor is capable to deliver the same graphical performance as today’s desktops or PCs. So basically, you can throw anything from your PC/desktop right away to Tegra K1 hardware and execute them without any problem.

      This is something that cannot be found on Amazon Fire HDX 8.9. Even though this Amazon’s tablet is still really powerful with its Snapdragon 805 and Adreno 420 (Qualcomm’s latest and greatest in 2015 actually) and capable to swallow games like GTA San Andreas or Modern Combat 5 in full highest graphics, there’s still no certainty if this device is also able to play some console-quality next-gen games in the future - like Trine 2 (PS3), Oddworld Stranger's Wrath and Half Life 2 (PC).

      Not to mention, the fact that Amazon Fire HDX 8.9 doesn’t allow users the access to Google Play Store is also the other reason why the gaming experience of this device is not nearly as good as Xiaomi Mi Pad 7.9. There’ll be some of your older favorite games that cannot be found on this device, forcing you to find the alternatives for them.

      But even so, both Xiaomi Mi Pad 7.9 and Amazon Fire HDX 8.9 are still great equally for playing games. Their gaming performance are powerful and they’re also capable to handle latest games like GTA San Andreas and Modern Combat 5 in buttery smooth performance and full highest graphics. And that's probably the most important that matters, at least for now.

      Anyway guys, if you want to know more about the gaming performance of Xiaomi Mi Pad 7.9 and Amazon Fire HDX 8.9, including what games that will run on these tablets, check out my YouTube video playlist or Pinterest page. :)

      Cameras

      Both Xiaomi Mi Pad 7.9 and Amazon Fire HDX 8.9 are equipped with 8MP rear-facing cameras. So on paper, these 2 devices are able to take decent quality shots with their cameras. However, when it comes to quality, i think Xiaomi’s tablet is slightly more superior than Amazon’s slate. As a matter of fact, i’ve already seen the 720p videos taken with the camera of Xiaomi Mi Pad 7.9 and they impressively look really sharp and the sound quality is also pretty good and realistic.

      Actually, this is not so surprising because the camera sensors of Xiaomi devices – including Xiaomi Mi Pad 7.9 - are mostly supplied by some respected companies like Sony and Samsung. And we all know that these 2 tech giants have been really superior with the cameras of their devices, even alongside iPads. So if you’re looking for a great powerful tablet with great camera, then Xiaomi Mi Pad 7.9 can be added in your hunting list.

      You probably can expect the same with the 8MP camera of Amazon Fire HDX 8.9. It may not be able to take as great quality shots as other flagship devices like Samsung GALAXY Tab S or iPads, but at least, it gets the job done and in fact, the overall quality of photos and videos taken with this tablet is actually not too shabby at all, according to PhoneArena.

      Battery Life

      Amazon Kindle Fire tablets have been known for its good battery life. And that’s probably not so shocking especially because this tablet series adopt a really light-weight simplified UI of Android OS. And this really contributes a lot to the use of battery on this device. It goes the same with the latest-gen Amazon Fire HDX 8.9. Even though there’s no information about the actual battery capacity, according to GSMarena, this tablet is capable to survive around 12 hours in talk time or multimedia.

      So basically, you can expect to see this device last in one solid day on a full charge, of course in moderate use. It goes the same with Xiaomi Mi Pad 7.9. Thanks to its pretty huge 6700mAh battery, this has a promised of 11 hours of battery life in talk time and 86 hours in music play.

      However, if any of these devices are deployed with some heavy intense tasks without resting the screen at all – like watching HD movies in marathon or playing games in the row -, of course their battery life could drop drastically probably just around 4 to 6 hours the longest, probably less.

      But even so, the battery life of these 2 devices can still be considered as good though, especially when knowing that they both are equipped with some power-hungry hardware like high-resolution screen, powerful chipset and GPU, plus heavy UI (i’m talking about MIUI on Xiaomi Mi Pad 7.9 of course).

      My Personal Opinions

      So in conclusion, between these 2 tablets, i think it’s pretty hard to determine which one of them that is a better tablet in the whole aspect. Okay, Amazon Fire HDX 8.9 may have a much sharper and higher-resolution screen than Xiaomi Mi Pad 7.9, plus LTE connectivity, however, when it comes to gaming performance, camera, storage expandability and software, i think Xiaomi Mi Pad 7.9 is more superior than Amazon’s tablet. But it also doesn’t mean that Amazon Fire HDX 8.9 is mediocre compared to Xiaomi Mi Pad 7.9 because that is so wrong.

      Despite using a light-weight simplified UI, the overall experience of using Amazon Fire HDX 8.9 is actually still good for most of its users. It’s really easy and simple to use, it doesn’t require some complicated learning curve, it provides an easy access and payment system to Amazon ecosystem and it still has some cool and useful features of Android OS, like app drawer for example.

      But of course, if compared side-by-side against Xiaomi Mi Pad 7.9, it’s just no-brainer that Xiaomi’s device is a lot better in many ways. It has full-featured UI, the standard Android design layout that you’ve come to love, better cameras, better gaming performance, external storage availability, better build quality and design, more powerful graphical performance and pretty much about this tablet is just better than Amazon Fire HDX 8.9, of course with the exception of display.

      It goes the same with its gaming performance. As mentioned above, thanks to its quad-core Tegra K1 processor and a staggering 192-core Kepler GPU, this Xiaomi Mi Pad 7.9 is more than capable to handle not only all Android tablets on the market to date, but also some console-quality next-gen games that are actually ported from console devices or PC - like Trine 2 (PS3), Oddworld Stranger's Wrath and Half Life 2 (PC). And this is a privilege that you can only find on Tegra K1 devices like Xiaomi Mi Pad 7.9.

      But even so, Amazon Fire HDX 8.9 with its Snapdragon 805 and Adreno 420 is also extremely powerful for gaming. It’s able to play Modern Combat 5 and GTA San Andreas in buttery smooth performance and in full highest graphics, but it’s not as powerful as Xiaomi Mi Pad 7.9.

      So bottom line, if you’re looking for a solid gaming tablet that has great camera, “Retina” display, solid build quality, full-featured UI and good battery life, then Xiaomi Mi Pad 7.9 is definitely your choice here. However, if you’re looking for a great media-consumption and even gaming tablet but with simple-to-use UI, then Amazon Fire HDX 8.9 is also a great choice here.

      Actually, it’s just a matter of personal preference. if you love simplicity, then Amazon’s tablet is gonna make you satisfied. But if you are a power gamer and love all the features of Android, then Xiaomi Mi Pad 7.9 will not disappoint you either.

      LG G Pad 8.3 VS Samsung GALAXY Tab S 8.4: Tablet Battle

      Hi guys, welcome back!

      Last year, Samsung struck the tablet market by releasing a bunch of productivity-centric tablets under the flag “Samsung GALAXY Tab Pro” – along with the Note Pro as well. But apparently, GALAXY Tab Pro series was not the only monster tablets that Samsung deployed to the tablet market in 2014. There’s more. And it’s released under the series “Samsung GALAXY Tab S”.

      This tablet series actually can be considered, in fact, IT IS the flagship or premium version of Samsung GALAXY Tab series that Samsung released in the same year (GALAXY Tab 4). And as the flagship model, of course all the tablets in this series are shipping with much higher quality specs compared to the regular Samsung GALAXY Tab 4 tablets. As a matter of fact, all 2 tablets in this Samsung GALAXY Tab S series are packing possibly the best quality hardware on the market to date.

      LG G Pad 8.3 VS Samsung GALAXY Tab S 8.4 benchmarks and gaming performance

      Samsung GALAXY Tab S consists only in 2 different variants (as opposed to the 3 different models of Samsung GALAXY Tab Pro series), ranging from the one with smallest 8.4-inch screen size to the largest 10.5-inch model. But today, i’m really interested to bring up the 8.4-inch model in my comparison review. Its challenger today, however, is coming from LG, which actually was launched almost around 2 years ago. And that is no other than LG G Pad 8.3.

      I think the comparison between these 2 tablets might not be fair and relevant especially because both tablets have entirely different class of hardware specs. However, given their almost similarity in screen size (8.3 and 8.4), not to mention, both are pure media-consumptive devices, then i think it could be interesting to see how they fare against each other, especially in terms of display and performance as well.

      Well, if you’re also interested to explore more about these 2 tablets, including my take on their gaming performance and experience in the whole aspect, then here you go, my comparison review between Samsung GALAXY Tab S 8.4 and LG G Pad 8.3.

      Introduction

      As mentioned both, in terms of specs, it’s no brainer that Samsung GALAXY Tab S 8.4 will blow LG G Pad 8.3 out of the water, especially on the hardware and performance. And that’s not quite shocking given that LG G Pad 8.3 was released back then around 2012, as opposed to the Samsung GALAXY Tab S 8.4 that just got launched a few months ago in 2014. However, as an older-gen tablet, i think there are still some great things to appreciate from LG’s device. First of all, its design.

      Unlike Samsung GALAXY Tab S 8.4 that still inherits the same plastic polycarbonate materials all over its coating, LG G Pad 8.3 surprisingly is made out of the total aluminum materials here and there all over its body. And this of course, really gives a sense of sturdiness and makes it feel really premium – even as premium as iPads. The more impressively is, despite using similar materials just like iPads, the overall design of LG G Pad 8.3 also really stands out compared to other rivals on the market.

      Besides great on design department, LG G Pad 8.3 is also not too shabby at all when it comes to performance. Thanks to its Snapdragon 600 quad-core processor, 2GB of RAM and Adreno 320 GPU, of course this tablet is more than happier to execute any games like Asphalt 8: Airborne, Modern Combat 4 or NOVA 3 in buttery smooth performance and in full highest graphics. But we’ll get more on that later.

      But the questions remain, with all of the goodness and high-grade specs found on both tablets, which one between Samsung GALAXY Tab S 8.4 and LG G Pad 8.3 that deserves to be the best gaming tablet in this comparison review? Which one between these 2 devices that is a better tablet in the whole aspect? Is it worth it to buy any of these devices for their gaming performance?

      Well, hopefully we’re about to find out more about the answers of these questions at the end of this review. So be sure to stick around!

      Design

      Around the tablet market, Apple with its iPad has always been untouchable by most of its rivals on the market especially when it comes to premium design and great build quality. And that shows really perfectly on the material used by Apple on its iPads – which is solid aluminum -, as opposed to plastic polycarbonate materials on most of other rivals. However, it doesn’t mean that iPad has no equal challenger from other tablet manufacturers. As a matter of fact, LG with its LG G Pad in my opinion is on the same level with iPad in terms of design and build quality.

      LG G Pad 8.3 2

      Samsung GALAXY Tab S 8.4

      Compared to other counterparts, LG G Pad is made out of aluminum material all over its coating. So it’s not shocking if this tablet feels really sturdy and comfortable to hold on hands. But more impressively is, this LG’s tablet is not only prominent with its aluminum materials, but also with its design. So unlike other regular Android tablets out there, LG G G Pad has rounded rectangular edges and corners all over the side of its bezels - which actually kind of reminds me with the sharp-looking rectangular design of LG Nexus 4.

      But something i’m really impressed with this device is how LG G Pad doesn’t try to copy the design of iPad or any other competing devices on the market. And this should be really appreciated because it’s pretty rare to find a tablet like LG G Pad that has its own identity and characteristic compared to other rivals.

      Meanwhile, Samsung GALAXY Tab S 8.4 may not have the same premium feel and aluminum materials just like on LG G Pad or iPad, however, this tablet still looks great and premium in high-end class. This Samsung tablet actually kind of reminds me with Samsung’s latest flagship smartphone – Samsung GALAXY S5 – especially with its unique patterned finish on rear cover.

      As a matter of fact, Samsung GALAXY Tab S 8.4 looks like the giant version of that flagship smartphone. So it has the metal trim all over the bezels, sharp looking rounded corners and of course, that unique patterned back cover.

      Between Samsung GALAXY Tab S 8.4 and LG G Pad, i think both tablets are equally great in terms of design. However, if i had to pick, i would probably prefer the LG G Pad because this device is not only premium with its aluminum materials, but it also has it own characteristic compared to other Android tablets out there, even the iPad.

        On the hardware side, Samsung GALAXY Tab S 8.4 is definitely far more superior than LG G Pad because it is the new-released tablet, while LG’s device was launched back then around 2 or 3 years ago. However, as an old-gen tablet, i think what LG G Pad has to offer to users can still be considered as great even for today’s standards.

        It has a full HD 1920x1200 pixel resolution on its 8.3-inch display, a quad-core Snapdragon 600 processor, 2GB of RAM, Adreno 320 GPU, 5MP and 1.3MP cameras back and front, 16GB of native storage, microSD card slot, Android 4.2.2 out of the box, 4600mAh battery and some other standard features.

        Meanwhile, Samsung GALAXY Tab S 8.4 looks more powerful than LG tablet with its 8.4-inch display sporting the 2560x1600 pixel resolution, a quad-core Snapdragon 800 processor, 3GB of RAM, Adreno 330 GPU, Android 4.4.2 Kit Kat, 16/32GB of internal storage, microSD card slot for up to 128GB, 8MP and 1.2MP cameras back and front with LED flash, 4900mAh battery and some other standard features.

        Between these 2 tablets, of course Samsung GALAXY Tab S 8.4 is the clear winner here in terms of hardware specs. However, it doesn’t mean that LG G Pad is really mediocre compared to Samsung’s tablet. Well, that is so wrong because LG G Pad is still a decent quality tablet with good quality specs, and it still deserves to be a high-end device around 8-inch tablet category.

        Screen

        Both Samsung and LG actually have been really superior with the display of their devices. And that’s not surprising given that these 2 manufacturers are actually the ones that develop and build their own screens along with its technology. So when it comes to display, between Samsung GALAXY Tab S 8.4 and LG G Pad 8.3, both of these devices of course really excel on this sector perfectly.

        Samsung GALAXY Tab S 8.4 is equipped with an 8.4-inch display sporting the 2.5K or 2560x1600 pixel resolution, while LG G Pad 8.3 comes with a slightly smaller 8.3-inch screen with full HD 1920x1600 pixels. In terms of sharpness, there’s no single doubt that the display of Samsung’s tablet is far more superior than LG G Pad.

        And it’s not only on paper, but also in real life execution. Well, that’s because Samsung GALAXY Tab S 8.4 comes with a Super AMOLED display, which we all know already looks really gorgeous with its outstanding well-saturated and popping out colors. In fact, the display of Samsung GALAXY Tab S 8.4 is probably the best on the market to date.

        However, the full HD screen of LG G Pad 8.3 actually still produces an eye-pleasing experience to its users. It may not look as insanely sharp as the 2.5K Super AMOLED screen on Samsung’s device, but its full HD resolution is still more than enough for its 8.3-inch display. It still looks sharp and produces gorgeous looking colors to this tablet. In fact, the display of this tablet is one of the most prominent parts that LG promotes aggressively in its commercials.

        User Interface

        From many smartphone and tablet manufacturers across the market, i think both Samsung and LG are the only 2 companies that have been really creative when it comes to customizing the UI of stock Android OS – of course, besides Sony.

        Samsung has been known with its fully-customized TouchWiz UI, while LG has its own homemade LG UI. So the UIs of both Samsung GALAXY Tab S 8.4 and LG G Pad 8.3 are really rich in terms of contents, features and of course visual presentations.

        The UI of Samsung GALAXY Tab S 8.4 actually is a huge departure from the Magazine UI of Samsung GALAXY Tab Pro series, which takes some inspirations from the Live-Tile-based Metro UI of Windows-powered tablets.

        Similar just like Samsung’s tablet, the UI of LG G Pad also runs on the same page with stock Android UI. So its homescreen still looks and works the same, and there’s also the normal setting&notification windows, plus of course, the app drawer. However, there are some parts that make the UI of this tablet stand out and more useful compared to stock Android OS.

        Like for example is the 3-finger-gesture that allows users to keep the existing apps or tasks in the background. So if user wants to access the existing apps in the background, they just need to slide the screen with 3 fingers (from left to the right) in order to open the multiwindow split-screen mode. I think this is kind of cool and in fact, there’s no other tablets that have this feature.

        Between Samsung GALAXY Tab S 8.4 and LG G Pad, i think both tablets are equally great on the software department. And it’s not because both devices use the standard design layout of stock Android UI, but it’s also because their UIs offer some other cool added features and visual presentations that probably can’t be found on other devices on the market.

        Back to Top
        Snapdragon 800 processor used to be the high-end model in Qualcomm’s processor lineup last year, while Snapdragon 600 processor was the mid-end variant in the same series. So as a tablet that ships with Snapdragon 800 processor, the gaming performance of Samsung GALAXY Tab S 8.4 is definitely more powerful than LG G Pad 8.3 with its Snapdragon 600 and Adreno 320 GPU. And their performance difference can be seen clearly when these 2 devices are deployed with some of the most graphics intense games like GTA San Andreas and Modern Combat 5.

        On Samsung GALAXY Tab S 8.4, there’s no single doubt that these 2 games will perform smoothly without any lag whatsoever and of course, in full highest graphics. So you can expect to see this tablet also capable to handle any other older games released in 2014 or before that year. On the other hand, the performance of LG G Pad when playing games might not be as powerful as Samsung’s device, especially when handling these 2 aforementioned games above.

        The hardware package of LG G Pad actually kind of reminds me with the one found on Google Nexus 7, the second-gen model. They have the same full HD resolution display, the same 2GB of RAM, the same Adreno 320 GPU, but different processors and software/UI. However, despite using stock Android UI (that obviously much lighter than the fully-customized UI on LG G Pad), GTA San Andreas runs extremely laggy and slow on Google’s tablet, especially in full highest graphics.

        Even though these 2 tablets (Nexus 7 and LG G Pad) both are using 2 different processors (Snapdragon S4 Pro vs Snapdragon 600), but i think it’s pretty obvious that the same thing could happen also on LG G Pad. And this really contradicts with Samsung GALAXY Tab S 8.4 that is more than capable to execute any kind of games, even the most graphically demanding titles without any problem whatsoever.

        And the fact that Samsung GALAXY Tab S 8.4 has bigger RAM, more powerful processor and GPU, also really makes it clear for us to see that this Samsung’s tablet is just more powerful than LG G Pad for playing games, even with a much higher screen resolution. So long story short, between these 2 devices, i think it’s not that hard to guess that Samsung GALAXY Tab S 8.4 is the clear winner here against LG G Pad.

        Anyway guys, if you want to know more about the gaming performance of LG G Pad 8.3 and Samsung GALAXY Tab S 8.4, including what games that will run on these tablets, check out my YouTube video playlist or Pinterest page. :)

        Cameras

        Samsung has always been really consistent in delivering great quality cameras on almost all of its flagship devices. Samsung GALAXY Tab S 8.4 is no exception.

        Thanks to its 8MP camera on the back and 1.2MP shooter on the front, your hobby of photography certainly will be accommodated very well on this device. So when it comes overall quality, it’s guaranteed that the photos and videos taken with the cameras of this tablet will be sharp (even without any manual tweaks from users), gorgeous and definitely worth sharing even on your large HD TV in your house.

        It actually goes the same with LG G Pad. On paper, this tablet may not look so impressive compared to Samsung’s tablet – 5MP vs 8MP rear facing cameras. However, in terms of quality, there’s actually something to write home about on the camera of LG G Pad. It may not be “on the same level” with the cameras of Samsung GALAXY Tab S 8.4 or iPads, but at least, it still takes decent quality shots and it’s also great for even macro photography.

        Between the 2, of course i will go with Samsung GALAXY Tab S 8.4 because Samsung’s flagship devices are always great in terms of camera, even alongside the iPads. However, the 5MP rear-camera of LG G Pad is still good though. It takes good quality shots that are still worth sharing to your Instagram or Twitter followers.

        Battery Life

        Both tablets are powered by slightly similar battery capacities, Samsung GALAXY Tab S 8.4 with 4900mAh battery, while LG G Pad ships with a smaller 4600mAh battery inside. This is actually not surprising given that Samsung GALAXY Tab S 8.4 comes with some hardware specs that require more power from its battery – like its super 2.5K high-resolution display, larger screen and a much heavier TouchWiz software. So in moderate use, you can expect to see this device last in a solid day on a full charge.

        It goes the same with LG G Pad. With 4600mAh battery capacity, this LG’s tablet is more than happier to accompany you in one solid day without recharging, of course in moderate use. However, if you’re a power user and gonna use any of these devices to do some heavy intense tasks without resting the screen at all, then its battery life could drop drastically to just around 4 to 6 hours the longest, probably less than that, depends on the screen brightness and the amount of running/existing apps in the background.

        My Personal Opinions

        So in my final conclusion about these 2 tablets, i think it’s quite obvious that Samsung GALAXY Tab S 8.4 is the clear winner here in this comparison review against LG G Pad. And it can be seen clearly on paper. Samsung’s tablet has a much higher resolution and more gorgeous Super AMOLED screen, a more powerful processor and GPU, a bigger RAM, bigger battery, newer build of Android firmware, better cameras, more features and everything about this tablet is just better than LG G Pad.

        And it goes the same with its gaming performance. Thanks to a quad-core Snapdragon 800 processor, Adreno 330 GPU and 3GB of RAM, plus a much sharper display, there’s no single doubt in faith that Samsung GALAXY Tab S 8.4 is more ideal gaming tablet than LG G Pad 8.3. And it’s not just on paper, but also in the real life execution. Heavier games like GTA San Andreas and Modern Combat 5 will surely run in buttery smooth performance and in highest graphics on Samsung GALAXY Tab S 8.4, while LG G Pad 8.3 will suffer a lot especially when handling these 2 games in full highest graphics.

        However, there’s still something to appreciate from LG G Pad 8.3 compared to Samsung GALAXY Tab S 8.4. And that is its design. Unlike Samsung’s tablet that is still “stuck” with plastic polycarbonate materials all over its coating, LG surprisingly decides to use full aluminum material all over the coating of LG G Pad. So as a result, not only does this material make this tablet look more premium and expensive, but it also feels sturdy and comfortable to hold in hands, despite using a wide 4:3 aspect ratio just like the new iPads.

        And it’s not just that. The design of LG G Pad actually looks much cooler than Samsung’s device and impressively has its own characteristic compared to other competing tablets out there on the market, including the iPad. And this should be appreciated because it’s still pretty rare to find Android tablets that can match the premium feel and solid build quality of iPads, without copying the design of iPad. So i think LG has done a marvelous job with the design of this tablet.

        But in overall quality, i’ve got to say that Samsung GALAXY Tab S 8.4 is still untouchable by LG G Pad 8.3, especially on the display, camera, software, UI, battery life, RAM, microSD card slot and many more. And the design of this tablet is actually not too shabby at all because it takes some design cues from Samsung’s latest flagship smartphone – Samsung GALAXY S5 -, especially on the rear side. And not to mention, the fact that this tablet is also equipped with fingerprint scanner really makes it a better offering than LG G Pad.

        But with great hardware specs, comes higher price tag (as said by Uncle Ben in Spiderman trilogy, Sam Raimi's one).

        As a flagship device in this review, of course Samsung GALAXY Tab S 8.4 costs more expensive than LG G Pad 8.3. If i’m not mistaken, LG’s tablet is still around $300 price point (probably already drops), while Samsung’s slate is definitely far more expensive.

        But even so, both tablets are still great equally (but Samsung GALAXY Tab S 8.4 is far better) and good especially for enjoying media contents. However, for playing games, of course Samsung’s device is a more ideal gaming tablet than LG G Pad.

        Xiaomi Mi Pad 7.9 vs LG G Pad 8.3: Tablet Battle

        Hi guys, welcome back!

        In my past comparison reviews, Xiaomi Mi Pad 7.9 has been nothing but an amazing quality tablet. it’s not only great for just doing some simple daily stuff like watching HD movies, reading books/magazines, browsing the web or listening to music, but Xiaomi Mi Pad 7.9 is also an impressive powerful tablet for playing games. In fact, in some comparison reviews between this tablet against iPad mini Retina, i would rather pick up Xiaomi’s tablet instead of Apple’s device simply because it offers a lot of stuff that cannot be found on iPad, even in cheaper price point.

        Xiaomi Mi Pad 7.9 vs LG G Pad 8.3 benchmarks and gaming performance

        So this the main reason why today i’m really excited to bring up again this tablet in my next comparison review with other competing device. But this time, i’m going to compare Xiaomi Mi Pad 7.9 with LG’s aluminum-plated LG G Pad 8.3. I think the comparison review between these 2 tablets could be interesting to see especially because both devices are powerful tablets priced at 2 different price points, $250 for Xiaomi Mi Pad 7.9 (16GB), while LG G Pad 8.3 costs more expensive with its $300 price tag (but probably has dropped to the same price range of Xiaomi tablet).

        So i believe some of you here (or even all of you) are interested to find out which one between these 2 models that is worth to buy than the other one.

        Well, if you’re also interested to know and see how these 2 tablets fare against each other, especially in terms of gaming performance, then here you go, my comparison review between Xiaomi Mi Pad 7.9 and LG G Pad 8.3.

        Introduction

        Both Xiaomi and LG actually are not really “expert” when it comes to making tablet. LG used to have its own homemade G-Slate tablet but sadly it didn’t have much to say around the tablet market, probably because it’s sold exclusively only for T-Mobile consumers. It goes the same with Xiaomi. Around the tablet-making business, it’s quite obvious that this Chinese company has no experience and expertise whatsoever in making tablets. In fact, Xiaomi Mi Pad 7.9 is the first-gen and the only one tablet ever released by this company.

        But impressively, both LG and Xioami – in my opinion – really nailed it this time with their tablets – LG G Pad and Xiaomi Mi Pad 7.9 respectively. LG’s tablet is not only powerful in performance and specs, but it surprisingly looks and feels premium thanks to LG’s decision to use total aluminum material all over its coating, similar just like iPads.

        Meanwhile, Xiaomi Mi Pad 7.9 is also an impressive tablet. This device may not have the same premium aluminum material just like LG G Pad, however, when it comes to specs and performance, it’s definitely Xiaomi Mi Pad 7.9 that will be clear winner here against LG’s tablet

        But the questions remain, with all of their powerful performance and impressive specs, which one between Xiaomi Mi Pad 7.9 and LG G Pad 8.3 that deserves to be the best gaming tablet in this comparison review? Which one between these 2 tablets that is a better tablet in the whole aspect? Is it worth it to buy any of these tablets, especially for their gaming performance?

        Well, hopefully we’re about to find out more about the answers of these questions at the end of this review. So be sure to stick around!

        Design

        When it comes to design, then it’s really obvious that Xiaomi Mi Pad 7.9 has no originality on it as this device is hugely “inspired” by – or blatantly copy, if you would – the entire design of iPads, especially the iPad mini Retina. And this is the main reason why Xiaomi Mi Pad 7.9 probably would never be allowed to enter to the countries where Apple lawyers are hanging out at the cafes eating donuts (wait, that's police officers, right?).

        On the other hand, LG G Pad 8.3 is definitely the clear winner here against Xiaomi’s tablet especially because it has its own identity and characteristic compared to other regular Android tablets out there on the market.

        Speaking about material used on both of these tablets, Xiaomi Mi Pad 7.9 is made out of plastic polycarbonate material, while LG G Pad is covered by totally aluminum material all over its coating, similar exactly just like iPads. However, this LG’s slate (not to be mistaken with LG G Slate) doesn’t try to copy the design of iPad, which is something that should be appreciated from this manufacturer. But impressively, even with its own design, LG G Pad still looks and feels really premium and sturdy in the grasp of hands.

        Meanwhile, Xiaomi Mi Pad 7.9 is actually not shabby at all when it comes to design, especially build quality, despite using plastic material. So even with that plastic material covering its entire coating, this tablet still feels solid, slick, slim and comfortable to hold, and also not prone to catch finger prints (so you can easily clean the rear-case even with your own hands). This of course really contradicts with other cheap tablets that mostly use glossy plastic finish on their rear-covers, which obviously feels and looks really cheap.

        Between Xiaomi Mi Pad 7.9 and LG G Pad 8.3, of course i will side on LG’s device especially because its design is pretty unique – which has fully rounded rectangular design approach, or chubby, if you would – plus its material and build quality are really solid and premium, just like the iPads. But even so, Xiaomi Mi Pad 7.9 is still pretty good on this department as well. It may not be as good and premium as LG G Pad obviously, but its build quality is still good, in fact, impressive given its affordable price tag.

          LG G Pad was released around 2 years ago or so, while Xiaomi Mi Pad 7.9 just got launched around few months ago in 2014, so it’s pretty obvious that Xiaomi’s tablet is the one that gets the new-generation of hardware specs. And that means, this tablet will be more powerful in performance, especially for gaming. But we’ll get more on that later. However, the hardware package found inside the LG’s tablet is still considered as impressive even for today’s standards.

          It has an 8.3-inch display sporting the full HD 1920x1200 pixel resolution, a quad-core Snapdragon 600 processor supplied by Qualcomm, Adreno 320 GPU, 2GB of RAM, 5MP and 1.3MP cameras back and front respectively, microSD card slot, Android 4.2.2 out of the box and many other standard features. Meanwhile, on the blue side, Xiaomi Mi Pad 7.9 looks far more superior than LG’s tablet in hardware department.

          Xiaomi Mi Pad 7.9 has a 7.9-inch display with “Retina” 1536x2048 pixel resolution (exactly just like iPad mini Retina), a quad-core Tegra K1 processor clocked at 2.2GHz, 2GB of RAM, 192-core Kepler GPU, 8MP and 5MP cameras back and front (which take great shots by the way), microSD card slot for up to 128GB, MIUI, 6700mAh battery promising 11 hours of talk time and 86 hours of music play and some other standard features.

          Screen

          It’s no brainer that the screen of Xiaomi Mi Pad 7.9 is the clear winner here compared to LG G Pad’s display. And it’s not on paper, but also in the real life implementation. LG’s tablet comes with an 8.3-inch display sporting the 1920x1200 pixels (full HD), as opposed to the higher 1536x2048 pixel resolution on the smaller 7.9-inch display of Xiaomi Mi Pad 7.9. So when it comes to sharpness, there’s no single doubt that Xiaomi’s tablet has the edge here compared to LG’s device.

          However, as i said above, it’s not just on paper this Xiaomi Mi Pad 7.9 is more superior than LG G Pad in terms of display, but also in real life situation. So its screen surprisingly looks really gorgeous. It has good viewing angle (it’s true actually!), good color saturation (so it looks realistic, not overly-saturated just like AMOLED) and it just looks sharp and crisp. This is not so shocking because Sharp is one of the screen suppliers of Xiaomi devices, as well as Apple devices (which is probably why it adopts the same “Retina” 1536x2048 resolution of iPads.

          But even so, the full HD display of LG’s tablet also still looks gorgeous and really sharp given that LG produces its own screen and in fact, it is also one of the main display suppliers of Apple devices as well. Besides, the screen resolution above HD already looks sharp on a small 7 to 8-inch display. So i think it’s more than good enough for most of users out there.

          User Interface

          I think both Xiaomi Mi Pad 7.9 and LG G Pad 8.3 really excel on the software department with their own way. Xiaomi Mi Pad 7.9 has its own fully-customized Android UI called MIUI, while LG also designs its own Android UI for this tablet. So compared to the pure stock vanilla Android UI on, say, Nexus or HP tablets, then the UIs of both Xiaomi Mi Pad 7.9 and LG G Pad have more added features, pre-loaded and visual presentations.

          On LG’s tablet, the most prominent feature found on this device is its ‘3 finger gesture’ which allows you to open the existing 3 running apps just like multiwindow mode or split screen. It actually also comes with multiwindow-mode on some pre-loaded apps like video player, browser, photo gallery or note app that can float on the screen or re-size according to your preference, just like the window floating mode/split screen on laptops or PCs. There’s also a lot of manual customizations found on the setting & notification drop-down window.

          Meanwhile, Xiaomi Mi Pad 7.9 is also as great as LG G Pad in terms of software and features. However, unlike LG’s tablet and other regular Android tablets out there, the MIUI of Xiaomi Mi Pad 7.9 doesn’t come with app drawer. So every app that you install or the existing pre-loaded apps on this device will be directly shown on the homescreen – similar just like the iOS of iPads. However, MIUI also has the widget element, so you can basically put any Android widget to the homescreen just like on any other Android tablets.

          Between these 2 devices, i think both Xiaomi Mi Pad 7.9 and LG G Pad 8.3 are really good in presenting their UI to the users. It’s not flat as stock Android UI, but it’s also not complicated to learn, which is a good thing for users.

          Back to Top
          So what do we have here? Xiaomi Mi Pad 7.9 is powered by a Tegra K1 quad-core processor clocked at 2.2GHz per core, accompanied with 2GB of RAM and a staggering 192-core Kepler GPU, while LG G Pad 8.3 is injected with Snapdragon 600 quad-core processor with the lower clock speed of 1.7GHz along with 2GB of RAM and Adreno 320 GPU. So on paper, it’s very obvious that Xiaomi Mi Pad 7.9 will blow instantly LG’s tablet out of the water. And it’s not just on paper, but also in the real life implementation.

          The performance difference of both tablets can be seen clearly when playing one graphics intense game from Rockstar Games – GTA San Andreas -. According to what i’ve seen on video reviews on YouTube, the Adreno 320 GPU is not that adequate to handle this game. So when set in full highest graphics, this game runs really slow and laggy, and it’s just not playable for human being. So you can totally expect the same thing happens on LG G Pad – unless if Rockstar Games already fixes the issues and brings the updated version for this tablet.

          That’s not gonna happen if that game is played on Xiaomi Mi Pad 7.9. Thanks to its monster powerful Tegra K1 processor along with its 192-core GPU – which is capable to deliver the same graphical performance of today’s desktops/PCs -, GTA San Andreas can be easily executed on this device in buttery smooth performance even in full highest graphics (full visual effects, shadows, reflections, objects, resolution, etc). And the same thing happens when playing other heavy Android titles like Modern Combat 5, Asphalt 8: Airborne and many more.

          In fact, Xiaomi Mi Pad 7.9 is so powerful for gaming it’s even more than adequate to handle some console-quality games – which are ported from consoles/PC – like Trine 2 (PS3), Half Life 2 (PC), Oddworld Stranger's Wrath and many other next-gen titles that are about to arrive in 2015 or even in the next 2 years ahead. The fact that NVIDIA – the maker of Tegra K1 – has good relationship with many famous giant game developers like Activision, EA or Ubisoft will also help a lot smooth things up in convincing these game makers to port their popular games to Tegra K1 tablets like Xiaomi Mi Pad 7.9 in the future (and it’s gonna happen real time soon!).

          So with all of these facts presented to you, i think it’s just no brainer that Xiaomi Mi Pad 7.9 is a far more powerful gaming tablet than LG G Pad 8.3. i’m not saying that LG’s tablet really sucks for gaming because that would be wrong. But when compared to Xiaomi’s tablet and its monster hardware, it’s just not hard to guess that Xiaomi Mi Pad 7.9 is the clear winner here in gaming performance.

          Anyway guys, if you want to know more about the gaming performance of Xiaomi Mi Pad 7.9 vs LG G Pad 8.3, including what games that will run on these tablets, check out my YouTube video playlist or Pinterest page. :)

          Cameras

          Both Xiaomi Mi Pad 7.9 and LG G Pad 8.3 are perfectly good for taking photos or recording videos. And it’s not because they have higher megapixels on their cameras, but it’s because their overall quality is indeed really good in the real implementation.

          Xiaomi Mi Pad 7.9 ships with an 8MP camera on the back and 5MP on the front, while LG G Pad 8.3 is embedded with 5MP and 1.3MP cameras back and front. So basically, you can instantly take great pictures with their cameras. In fact, according to many video reviews i’ve already seen on YouTube, the 720p videos taken with Xiaomi’s tablet look really good and sharp, plus have good sound quality. The same applies to LG’s tablet especially given its years of experience on the camera developments on its previous devices.

          Battery Life

          On battery department, Xiaomi Mi Pad 7.9 looks more prepared than LG G Pad 8.3. And that’s because it’s powered by a much larger 6700mAh battery, as opposed to the smaller 4600mAh battery found inside LG’s tablet. It’s probably due to the screen resolution of both devices, not to mention some other factors like processor, GPU or software.

          And we both know that Xiaomi Mi Pad 7.9 is the one that really requires a lot of power to run its engine as it comes with a higher-resolution 1536x2048 pixel display, a power-hungry quad-core Tegra K1 processor along with 192-core Kepler GPU and of course, MIUI that ‘sucks’ a lot of space in the memory/RAM, forcing this tablet to always stay awake even in idle mode (with the assumption that all pre-loaded are activated in default/without rooting).

          On the other hand, LG G Pad comes with a lower full HD screen-resolution (1920x1200 pixels VS 2048x1536 pixels), an efficient Snapdragon processor, plus its UI is not as heavy as MIUI on Xiaomi Mi Pad 7.9. So i think with that 4600mAh battery, this tablet is still more than capable to survive in long long hours even in heavy use. It actually the same with Xiaomi Mi Pad 7.9. its larger 6700mAh battery will ensure longer gaming or watching movie session on this device, probably around 4 to 6 hours without resting the screen at all.

          My Personal Opinions

          So in my final conclusion of the comparison review, i think it’s pretty hard to determine which one is the best tablet in the whole aspect. Okay, i know, Xiaomi Mi Pad 7.9 may have an insanely powerful Tegra K1 processor and 192-core GPU that ensure smooth console-quality gaming. However, LG G Pad 8.3 with its gorgeous design and premium build quality is just not untouchable by Xiaomi’s tablet with its plastic material (although it still feels sturdy and has great build quality on its, despite using plastic).

          But then again, on the display department, Xiaomi Mi Pad 7.9 looks more ‘polished’ than LG’s tablet given its much sharper “retina” display as opposed to the ‘only’ full HD screen on LG’s slate. The good thing is, LG G Pad fights back with its software that provides more useful features without draining a lot of power from its battery – compared to MIUI that takes a lot of space in the RAM and requires a lot of energy even in idle mode (which is why its battery life bar always drops pretty significantly even in lockscreen mode).

          However, in the whole aspect of both devices, i think Xiaomi Mi Pad 7.9 is more prepared especially in the fierce battle on future’s tablet market than LG G Pad. It may not have aluminum and premium build quality all over it just like LG’s tablet. But Xiaomi Mi Pad 7.9 is actually a much better and greater tablet overall, even in quality.

          That’s not surprising because Xiaomi always uses hardware parts from respected manufacturers like Samsung, Sony, Sharp, Qualcomm, NVIDIA and many more. So no wonder if many Xiaomi devices are great in terms of display quality, camera, sound quality, gaming performance and even build quality. It goes the same with its gaming performance. As i already mentioned above, Xiaomi Mi Pad 7.9 is insanely powerful it’s even capable to deliver the same graphical performance of today’s desktops/PCs, thanks to Tegra K1 processor and 192-core GPU.

          This really contradicts with LG G Pad that ships with the processor and GPU that are already considered as ‘so last year’. And it’s not just on paper because in the real life implementation, this LG’s tablet is not as powerful as Xiaomi Mi Pad 7.9 especially in handling game like GTA San Andreas in full highest graphics. And the fact that Tegra K1 tablets like Xiaomi Mi Pad 7.9 is capable to execute console-quality games in the future also makes it harder for LG G Pad to stay in the same league as Xiaomi’s device.

          So bottom line, i think Xiaomi Mi Pad 7.9 is a much better tablet in the whole aspect. It’s also a much greater more powerful gaming tablet than LG G Pad 8.3. It may not have the premium aluminum material just like LG’s tablet, but in terms of display, camera, software, features and most importantly, price point, Xiaomi Mi Pad 7.9 is the clear winner here.
