After looking at the contrast between the iPad mini and Nexus 7, you can see the 7-inch tablet PC market has ushered in a new round of fierce war. In the small size of tablet PC market which Jobs did not care about the Nexus7 was born, so as kindle which have a very attractive charm. And in the iPad to dominate the years of 9.7-inch large-scale tablet PC market there is also not necessarily an iPad alone can sit tightly on NO.1 position. For example, the recent advertising overwhelming Microsoft Surface is a large size product, and then what different is it from iPad?
We take the current iPad 3 and Surface RT for a comparison, the reason why not use the latest iPad 4 (fourth generation iPad short), because in the current domestic iPad 4 is not licensed. The new iPad 4 updates to the A6 processor, the other side interface was changed to Lightning, and the rest is the same with the iPad 3. IPad 3 is currently a large inventory, after reducing price its cost efficiency is also very high, and have a high purchase value.
Appearance contrast: “black man characteristics” and “pure white feminine”
In fact, iPad is also a black frame, but pure white iPad is the most consistent with the characteristics of Apple’s product quality, so we brought a white version of iPad for comparison; Microsoft surface RT shell color is not called black, in the official His color on the site is called dark gray silver. There have been friends that Apple’s product looks softer, it is not enough “man”. Perhaps in the hearts of many users have angular products seem fortunate to have a sense of men. But there are friends that “normal men like bitch”, of course, this argument is also a matter of opinion, just let everyone a music only.
IPad 3 external use of silver-white magnesium alloy shell, because it is the metal primary color so it is very texture, simple and refreshing is the iPad to bring the strongest feeling. Surface RT also uses an alloy shell, the external layer of glue spray, this design is to enhance the feel and friction, black appearance appears to be low-key calm, highlighting the business. iPad 3 fuselage edge has a beautiful arc, rounded curved back shell makes hand feeling smooth and comfortable; surface is a corner of the trail, corner feel no iPad comfortable, but this shape There are many users like.
Because the back of the arc because the iPad 3 looks thinner than the surface RT, in fact, the thickness of the two are almost the same, iPad 3 body thickness of 9.4mm, Surface RT body thickness of 9.3mm. If you have an iPhone 4 / 4s (9.3mm), you can try to imagine. In addition the weight of the two are similar, iPad 3 weight of 652g, Surface 676g, it was said that the surface of the screen is 10.6 inches, this weight is very commendable, so really so?
Screen contrast: retina screen is still advantaged
Surface RT screen size is 10.6 inches IPS screen, maximum support 5 touch, the screen the best resolution of 1366 × 768. Surface RT this screen ratio is 16: 9, compared to 4: 3 iPad for its actual visual area or an advantage. iPad screen width 14.8 cm, 19.7 cm high, an area of 291.6 square centimeters, surface screen width of 23.4 cm, 13.2 cm high, an area of 308.7 square centimeters. The actual area exceeds about 17.6 square centimeters, about 6%.
Both are IPS screens, so the viewing angle is almost exactly the same. iPad screen ratio of 4: 3, in the web browsing is very advantageous, vertical can see more class capacity. And the surface RT is the same as the notebook 16: 9, this screen ratio is more suitable for horizontal browsing (win8 metro basic are horizontal browsing), 16: 9 relatively more suitable for movies and photo browsing, this is indeed 4: 3 screen short board.
In order to better support the Win8 system, Surface RT uses the mainstream 1366 × 768 resolution, and compared to iPad 2048 × 1536 resolution the gap is great. Surface RT resolution ppi is 147, while the iPad ppi is reached 264. So if close to check you will see the screen particles. On screen color and viewing angle Surface RT is can be on an equal footing with iPad 3, the only difference is the resolution and delicate degree. For Surface the main reason for not use of ultra-high resolution is that it is not supported by the windows system itself, in the high-resolution Windows system font, the icon of the pixels will not be as IOS fusion, so it looks very small.
Camera contrast: Surface is not enough to understand the “national conditions”
Starting from the iPad 3, the rear camera pixel has been greatly improved, iPad 3 from the iPad 2 70 million pixels suddenly upgrade to 500 million pixels. For the reason why a substantial increase in the rear camera, because some users when going outside will use iPad to take pictures, and iPad camera shooting is very good, so the back camera is also a very important selling point.
Surface RT in this regard is too weak, when a variety of tablet have more than 500W pixels, it has chosen 720P rear and front camera, which is about 100W pixels, the front for the chat camera with the iPad 130W pixel camera is almost the same, but the rear 100W camera used to take pictures is some not enough sincerity. Perhaps Microsoft did not think the user will take this product to take pictures of it. We know that the effect of the camera is not only concerned about the pixels, as well as the aperture size, photographic element area and so on factors, then we take a look at the actual results.
Today’s iPad series of products is already very mature, whether it is the appearance of work, or the internal system both have reached the industry’s top level. At present the price for Used Apple iPad 3 64GB is only $189.91 on Cell Phone Age com.
