I have been using my iPad Air 2(2nd unit replacement) for over a week now and I all so have a high end Android tablet Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro 8.4 and have been using it for over a year and a half now. And both tablets has been launched in 2014 and as for the specs the iPad Air 2 has a A8X chip clocked at 1.5 GHz and it is has 3 cores and 2GB of RAM and for the Galaxy Tab Pro 8.4 it has a Snapdragon 800 chip clocked at 2.3 GHz and it is a quad core which it has 4 cores and it has the same amount of RAM found in the iPad Air 2 which is 2GB of RAM which according to the specs makes the iPad Air 2 is definitely a lot more powerful and definitely will blow away the Tab Pro 8.4 on every single thing. So I did a side to side comparison and for some reason the Tab Pro 8.4 loads up some games faster, loads up apps like Facebook, loads up web pages faster but at the same time the Air 2 loads up some games/apps and web pages faster then the Tab Pro 8.4 but it is quite close. Despite the iPad Air 2 is a lot more powerful then the Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro 8.4 especially in benchmarks but in the real world the Tab Pro 8.4 loads up certain games/apps and web pages slightly faster then the iPad Air 2 but at the same time it's quite close tho but on the other hand the iPad Air 2 handles games especially very heavy demanding games like Gangster Vegas, Asphalt 8, GTA very well and way way better then the Galaxy Tab Pro 8.4 simply because the Air 2 has a better GPU then the Tab Pro 8.4. Anyway i really really would like to know Is this normal?? Does having a extra core and the CPU that is higher clocked then a other CPU makes a difference in terms of loading up games/apps and web pages?
