One area where the two tablets diverge right from the start is on the display size and resolution. The iPad includes a 9.7-inch display, significantly larger than the Galaxy Tab Active2 with its 8-inch display. Samsung, for its part, says the 8-inch size is an advantage for use by workers out in the field because it allows for one-handed operation.

The iPad is also higher-res, at 2,048 x 1,536 pixels, versus the 1,280 x 800 resolution of the Tab Active2. In terms of brightness, though, the two tablets come out similar: the iPad goes up to 500 nits of brightness, while the Tab Active2 reaches up to 480 nits, making them two of the brightest-screened tablets available.
