With ever-changing technology, a constant question always arises in everybody’s mind is that which option is better. To answer the same, it is always advised to start with the basics. In April 2010, Apple first released the iPad, and it gained popularity in a short span of time. Since then, many other smartphone companies like Samsung, Motorola have come up with tablets running on Android. There has been a great demand for Tablets for various purposes including personal, educational and workplace applications, up until a few years ago. The Tablet market has seen a decline in the last 2-3 years. Undoubtedly, the reason for this has been competitive features available in Smartphones. Smartphones have come a long way from being used just for calls to becoming both your personal assistant and entertainment device. Both Smartphones and Tablets offer what they promise but for a person who is trying to come at a solution between which one to buy might want to consider the following mentioned differences.
If we take a look at a Smartphone and then at a Tablet, the apparent difference that we see is of their size. Size is counted as a plus for Tablet when it is compared to a PC but when it comes to taking pictures with a massive tablet, it is a task to get the job done in a single go.
Moving further, if we compare the image qualities offered, Tablets like Samsung Galaxy J Max offer around 8MP whereas Smartphones like Redmi Note 4 and Panasonic Eluga Ray 700 offers a 13MP camera front and rear camera. Smartphones have moved ahead by leaps and bounds in providing a better camera quality, whereas Tablets are still on a stagnant 8MP.
As the Tablets are bigger in size, naturally they require more power to get charged. As a result of which, you get more power per inch for a Smartphone in comparison to a Tablet because of its large size. Typically, smartphones like Panasonic Eluga Ray 500, Moto G5 Plus with 4000mAh will last over as twice as long as Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 with the same power.
Earlier Smartphones had screens of about 3.5-inches, but now every other phone has a screen starting from 5-inches. The current average screen size is close to the ideal size of 6 inches for reading. So the chances of your bibliophile friend buying a Moto, Xiaomi, Panasonic smartphone is more than buying a Tablet.
Last but not the least, browsing a web page on a smartphone or desktop is optimized according to the device size. But when it comes to browsing a web page through a Tablet, then Tablet doesn’t have its own look. It can either go for a scrunched desktop version or go for an enlarged mobile interface.
With Smartphones becoming bigger and better, Tablets cease to hold themselves ahead in the race. The same choice would have had a cut-throat competition had it been compared 4-5 years ago. But with so many distinctive differences mentioned above, one can easily arrive at a clearly thought-through decision.
