iPad Pro 11:

This tablet looks very nice and slim but the camera bump is the main drawback over here. So might consider having a case for this tablet as the camera might get scratched up over time.

Tablet consists of aluminum body and looks very similar to the 2018 edition. It also has magnetic strips that can be used to attach apple pencil to it. The tablet has a square design which is similar to iPhone SE.

It has two speakers at the bottom, and there is a USB Type-C port in the center of these speakers. It also has two tablet speakers at the top, as well as a power button. There is nothing but another microphone hole on the left hand side.

Samsung Galaxy Tab S6:

Thanks to the sleek design of Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 which feels great in the hands much like iPad Pro 11. It weighs only 430 grams, and its 5.5mm thinness which makes it feel almost weightless in hands. This tablet’s weight is nearly identical to S5e but this has support for S-pen and other hardware improvements.

iPad Pro 11:

iPad Pro 11 has got little bezels. It’s not nice though since the whole panel is bezelless, so keeping the tablet would be a little difficult to hold.

The screen can be incredibly bright, and the brightness can go down as well. There is also dark mode that comes with iOS 13.4

Overall, the display on this is really good and it is one of the best display.

Samsung Galaxy Tab S6:

Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 has a really beautiful 10.5″ OLED HDR 10+ display. Not only is this display capable of playing 1440p YouTube video, it also looks completely fantastic in HDR. That’s something which is not supported in S5e.

It also has an aspect ratio of 16:10 which makes it obviously better suited for video consumption than other tablet brands.

iPad Pro 11:

iPad has Bionic chipset A12Z. This chip is truly incredible and it makes the performance is monster when compared to its previous version. The previous update is not a major jump but this upgrade is pretty fantastic. As always it is a well-optimized tool.

Overall, this great for performance and productivity which means its a great news for gaming, multitasking and all that stuff.

Samsung Galaxy Tab S6:

This tablet has Snapdragon 855 but is not as powerful as the iPad pro. The real world performance was quiet good on this tablet. .I think the hardware is great.

I edited some images and it did work fantastic. It also performs very well in games but when I played Asphalt 9, which is a fairly heavy game, the only time I find a slight difference.

Overall, the hardware is great but the software creates the problem. And if the software developers don’t optimize then the experience is worse than the iPad experience.

iPad Pro 11:

The front-facing camera has the 7 MP resolution that is very good to capture up to 1080p 60fps videos. Yet like the back camera, front camera isn’t nearly good enough.

The back camera here is good too. Especially now that it has a wide angle camera but on this iPad the zoom effect looks very similar to the iPhone. The back camera is pretty good overall here and you’ll love it too.

If I talk about the battery life, I get nearly 11 hours of battery life. But if you’re doing a lot of editing work you might run out of battery quite fast. So if you’re someone who needs this for a day-to-day job then it’s going to last the entire day.

Samsung Galaxy Tab S6:

As far as cameras are concerned, you ‘re actually getting dual rear cameras, 13 and 5 megapixels with an ultra-wide rear and a front is 8 megapixel. The camera is beautiful in decent lighting. But the pictures tend to come out very grainy with less light and there is no available flash.

I was surprised by the battery life on the Samsung Galaxy Tab S6, It made it through a two-day journey. It lasted 15 hours and beat iPad 11 Pro on our battery test.

WHICH ONE YOU SHOULD BUY?

For me, iPad 11 Pro is the winner as it is really great for performance, display, nice design, and nice camera. It might be not good in terms of battery life. But if you are someone who wants better battery life then Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 is the best choice for you.
