iPad Mini 2 Vs Nexus 7, Galaxy Tab Pro 8.4 size analysis

By Alan Ng - Jan 31, 2014

As we told you earlier this week, the Galaxy Tab Pro 8.4 is one of the newest tablets on the block and is part of Samsung’s 2014 lineup alongside the Galaxy Tab Pro 12.2 and the rather expensive Galaxy Note Pro 12.2.

While the Note Pro 12.2 has already confirmed to have a price shocker at £649, we don’t know how Samsung will play their hand with the Galaxy Tab Pro 8.4 pricing.

Hopefully it won’t be overpriced just for the sake of being a new tablet, but more in line with the iPad Mini with Retina which costs $299 and the popular Nexus 7 2013 which remains unbeatable at just $230.

As we await this crucial piece of information, allow us to point you in the direction of an excellent video below. It compares the iPad Mini 2 and Nexus 7 Vs the Galaxy Tab Pro 8.4 with the emphasis being on size.


Samsung’s tablet is obviously the bigger of the three at 8.4-inches, while the iPad Mini 2 is the middle range device at 7.9 inches. In the video you can see how the Nexus 7 and iPad Mini 2 look when side-by-side against Samsung’s new tablet.

8.4-inches definitely doesn’t look out of place on this occasion and the powerful 1.9 GHz octa-core Samsung Exynos processor on board (WiFi model) may just tempt you into a purchase ahead of the Nexus 7 and Apple’s device.

Then again, Google may be planning to play their hand later on in the year, with a Nexus 8 2014 tablet heavily rumored. We already know that Apple will launch a 13-inch iPad Pro, but is there a chance that we will see an iPad Mini 3 as well to satisfy consumers who want a hardware upgrade?

If you are a fan of the smaller-sized tablet, let us know which one you would choose between a Nexus, iPad or Galaxy Tab Pro 8.4.

      What does that mean mate? I kmow its screen ratio, but does that mean it will have more or much less letterboxing when displaying media. The ipad mini retina is terrible for that. Its the simple biggest bug bear for me as i like media on these size tablets

    iPad Pro 12.2, Galaxy Tab Pro 8.4, and Nexus 8 don’t sound bad either. Will there be a Note Pro 8.4? If so I would wait for that but far as big tablet no question I will be selling my iPad Air for the iPad Pro
