There are many tablets on the market today in the mid-size range, but we have picked out two that we think are among the best. These are the Apple iPad Mini and the Samsung Galaxy Note 8.

The Apple iPad Mini is a light tablet made of aluminium and glass. The display has a bezel that is small, but the tablet does feel solid. When it comes to the Samsung Galaxy Note 8, the finish is fake metal in white and it feels plasticky.

The resolution of the Apple iPad Mini is 1024 x 768 at 7.9 inches, the one of the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 is 8 inches and it offers the superb addition of the S Pen. Along with this we think the colours are superb and vibrant.

There is a camera of 5MP on the back of the Apple iPad Mini, along with a 1.2MP on the front. The Samsung Galaxy 8 comes with the 5MP camera and a 1.3MP on the front. There is a battery of less than 490mAh on the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 in comparison to the one of the Apple iPad Mini. But this difference isn’t noticeable as they both offer about 11 hours of use.

The Apple iPad Mini comes with the dual core A5 processor and 512 RAM. On the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 there is the Exynos quad core 1.6GHz with 2GB of RAM. The Samsung Galaxy Note 8 is ahead for multi-tasking with a processor that is smooth and fast.

The Apple iPad Mini 2 has iOS 7 and this is a superb operating system and works well with the Mini. The update means that users have Apple TV with AirPlay so you can connect your device to an HDTV without wires. The Samsung Galaxy Note 8 offers Jelly Bean 4.1.2. This is superb for multi-tasking and it comes with support for Chrome, Maps, Gmail and YouTube.

Expect to pay about $330 for the Apple iPad Mini and around $300 for the Samsung Galaxy Note 8.
