What's up prized by fans I'm Brian Tong and this is the first ever price fight -- war. Then you've been asking for. It's -- -- five point out. Between the Samsung galaxy tab and Apple's iPad three G. I just for this fight are senior editor Donald save by the bell senior associate editor just get this amount dual port and Bryant. Now we'll take all three judges' blind scores and average them out in their tenth each round the final price let's -- -- an average of all rounds in the same decimal system. Let's get ready to rumble around one. Samsung's galaxy tab has -- solid design with its -- screen and curved corners of the less than half the size of the iPad. It's lighter and more comfortable to hold. The -- -- -- -- four by 600 resolution on a smaller screen brings a slightly crisper image. But it left us wanting more and buy more meaning screen size. The iPad brings Apple's highest level designs and his nine point seven inch screen is big but is designed -- -- The metal finishing curved edges are gorgeous and -- 1024 by 760 display just pops. It might be heavier than you like but it feels like it's worth every penny. Apple's iPad gets a five and Samsung galaxy tab gets a four next -- -- The galaxy tab is pure Android and if you've used -- before you'll feel right at home. One issue is that it's the exact same experience would get on a phone. There's nothing that makes it unique for a tablet you'll still get the same customization the widgets don't aligned with icons. Hitting the menu button to access app pages on the Android OS bug Donald. This -- implemented is here but at the end of the day newcomers the tablets might feel intimidated by learning curve. Now it doesn't matter if -- -- an iPhone or iPod the iPad user base is so simple that several judges mentioned how our nieces and nephews. One and a half years and older can all use the iPad. We can't say in it but it's still amazing how easy it is to use the -- -- is more spacious and comfortable for typing and the iPad was snapped you're navigating an overall. The iPad strikes -- with its second for. And they got the -- gets. After averaging two rounds Apple leads by more than a point but there's plenty of fight to go round -- -- performance. It's not as everything that I've had users having created or with front and rear facing cameras with flash a micro SD card slot. Wireless hot -- capability and flash ten point one support. It also comes packed with Google's goodies like voice search and commands Google navigation. And access to these services in the notification -- down. -- from -- marketplace are still built for phones and just don't take full advantage of the screen real stating they're just bigger. The tab is also a step behind performance wise with a -- -- -- moments and as battery life is shorter by three hours.

But if and not a good tab finally takes its first round -- the -- and the iPad gets a 3.3. Next round is -- Multi media. The times web browser is a solid offering but it's frustrating how it goes directly to most of them mobile versions of web sites by and he -- Even with a seven inch screen experience can be a little -- Now flash playback can be hit or miss and has -- moments when your pinching and zooming into web sites. Samsung's media hub is a nice way to get media content but it still has a long ways to go. The three megapixel rear camera is mediocre but one advantage is that it's easy to hold and use as an e-book reader. On the iPad web browser is a four screen multi touch version of -- that actually makes web browsing more fun and takes advantage of its space. Even though it doesn't have flash. The multi media experience is one of the key with its deep library of content from iTunes and has a -- media player. Multi media apps and add more access the content and a large screen and enhances the experience. IPad gets a four point seven and the tab gets -- for -- averaging four. Around Apple's lead has been trimmed down -- seven -- point the final round that decides it all is value.
