    I’m so intrigued by the Samsung tablet but since I use the tablet for digital art and I use the procreate app for all my artwork , I still think I should save up for the iPad pro. Really wish apple would give the apple pencil with the Ipad.

    The S7+ is a nice tablet and it satisfies my use case perfectly. I’m looking forward to the next generation and hoping they add more RAM.

    Baahhaahaa love your expression at the end after you mentioned the s pen, like you were disgusted at Apple for not including it

    I remember back in the day when you were talking healthy of Windows XP and dissing on vista

    Chris Face ID works better try using finger print if you take meds that dry out the skin Face ID wins every time finger id is a joke its bad I used it on iPads and iPhones for years its bad iPad Face ID and iPhones works with dry skin you forgot to talk about dry skin users

    I have both and each has pros and cons and difficult decision for a neutral person too make. However, many are in their own ecosystem so will probably decide on that specific rather than specs. Samsung delaying the Tab S8 to avoid their SD888 being devalued against the M1 so the Tab S7 is really nearly two-year-old tech, so on that alone the M1 iPad will be the best choice for long term. For me, work on iPad and leisure on Tab S7+. I have a PC so no interest in DeX especially as I need X86 apps not blown up phone apps. By the way DeX is a UI, nothing much more, that mimics windowed OS’es; I want my tablet to run like a tablet otherwise I would get a convertible!

    I’ve had a few iPads in the past but never really found them very useful compared to using a laptop where I can get a portable desktop experience. As you were saying it’s just like a big iPhone for better or worse.

  9. pezliz on July 8, 2022 at 12:40 am

    I love the iPad Pro… for me!

  10. Jon on July 8, 2022 at 12:43 am

    Good choice Chris! The Tab S7+ is great Tablet, I have it and love it.

  11. Dmitriy TechMix on July 8, 2022 at 12:43 am

    Happy holiday. Are you excited for the new upcoming Steam Deck?

    Can macos apps run on ipados ? ,
    this is the main concern

  14. Greg wall on July 8, 2022 at 12:53 am

    Thanks Chris I can not wait to try the camera

  15. Jesse Moreno on July 8, 2022 at 12:57 am

    I’m a Android person. So I’m going to get the the samsung tablet.

  16. Dee Douglas on July 8, 2022 at 12:58 am

    Diagonal split screen mmmm

  17. Greg wall on July 8, 2022 at 1:02 am

    Chris I just ordered a pixel 5a 5g my first pixel phone

  18. Alberto Martínez Rodríguez on July 8, 2022 at 1:02 am

    Great comparison! ☺️ As someone that hasn’t used an Android tablet in a while I was curious about it. That being said, I’m still on a 2017 iPad Pro and have no plans to upgrade (maybe when they bring miniLED to the 11" one I’ll consider it). Had I bought any Android tablet 4 years ago it would be obsolete by now software-wise, and that’s one of the main reasons I stick with Apple. On phones I switch more often, mainly for the camera upgrades (I’m looking forward to make the jump from S21 Ultra to Pixel 6 Pro), but tablets… 🤷🏻‍♂️

  19. Garuka Priyamaan on July 8, 2022 at 1:05 am

    I love iPad
    But, no money for it
    I’m very Sad Chris

  20. Rolex on July 8, 2022 at 1:06 am

    Seriously, I don’t even dare to imagine what the Tab S8 Plus will be like if the numbers announced for Samsung’s next processor turn out to be correct 🔥.

  21. d11ita on July 8, 2022 at 1:12 am

    Thanks for your considerations. I keep my tablet for many years (until it breaks or become unusable) so I appreciate a lot the long support given by Apple.

  22. Jessie Mason on July 8, 2022 at 1:13 am

    Just got the Tab S7+ 5G, so far I am loving it. You mentioned in your video about an app from the galaxy store? What was the app and what are the benefits of it?

  23. MAIcrosoft on July 8, 2022 at 1:13 am

    Well, you really sound like an iPad user switching to Android hahaha. I still wonder why you want the extra RAM for though? I have the 6GB version S7+ and I never encountered any stutter or slowdown and I’m quite the power user. Same thing for 5G, what do you need that for? I’m getting 300Mbps on 4G, which is fast enough for me, plus 5G drains a lot more battery than 4G.

    Great ❤️🥰

  25. Chris Pirillo on July 8, 2022 at 1:15 am
