    Recently, Samsung has been making a few hits towards Apple, by releasing advertisements mocking the fruit company's products. The former posted a new commercials, taking hits at Apple's iPad Air.

    Although the larger iPad was recently slimmed down, and renamed to the iPad Air, Samsung's Galaxy Tab Pro seems to be thinner. How much thinner you ask? A whopping 0.2mm less than the iPad Air.

    The ad uses Apple's idea of showing a pencil with an iPad Air hiding behind it. As the camera pans upward, we see the iPad Air behind the pencil, but then Samsung adds its spin on the ad, hiding the Galaxy Tab Pro behind both objects.

    While the iPad Air is only 7.5mm thick, the Galaxy Tab Pro is 7.3mm thick, which technically means it is thinner, though not by much. But of course with a marketing standpoint, Samsung is obviously looking to say its product is better.

      Competition is good for us so I applaud Samsung for keeping heat on apple.

      They need to just sell on the merits of their systems. Negative ads don't really work in this space.

      The Samsung tabs have plenty of merit, but Samsung is not good at marketing. Plus, their added software makes their tablet more complex, IMO. Still, the models with Pens tempt me. But then their prices slow me right back down. I won't pay premium for a plastic-back device with complex software. But there is a price point which would induce me to take a shot....

      Apple should do one, 0.2mm vs battery life, which would you choose

      Take my old iPhone 5 vs my now Samsung Galaxy S4

      The iPhone lasted all day and still had charge, the S4...... Let's just say I have to carry a spare battery with portable charger!

      I suspect the battery life on the tab isn't all that great either

      The Note 10.1 has 7000 mhz battery but it doesn't last longer or near as at the iPad Air. Samsung copies Apple and they still fail at that!

      I don't know if they are copying Apple anymore. Frankly, they'd be more successful if they did copy Apple more.

      Yeh what about making that 5 and a half-inch note 3 be 4-inch? Yeh maybe boosting up the specs and messing with benchmarks will help. As android will become more power-hungry and drain out the phone when kitkat comes to samsung. Sorry samsung but no matter how you boost the specs of your phones android will still remain unstable, slow, and of course power hungry.

      Maybe mess up benchmarks? Perfect!! Then get caught an lie? Perfect!

      Cuts no ice with me, iPad Air beats an Android tablet hands down.

      I agree I've used many different tablets but the only products I really enjoy using is apple products.
