Head-to-Head: Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 vs. Apple iPad 3


Dimensions

Despite a display that's nearly a half-inch larger diagonally, the Galaxy Note 10.1's physical dimensions (left) are quite similar to those of the iPad 3. Samsung's device measures 7.1 inches by 10.3 inches compared with Apple's 7.3 by 9.5. The Galaxy Note is a razor's edge thinner at 0.35 inches compared with iPad's 0.37 inches. The lightest iPad 3 model (Wi-Fi only) weighs 1.44 pounds. A similarly equipped Galaxy Note tips the scale at 1.3 pounds. We'd call this about even.
