Just from looking at the specs sheet, it's clear that Samsung Galaxy Tab has a better processor and battery than Cherry Mobile Superion. There's no denying that. If Tab will outperform Superion in terms of speed and uptime, then it shouldn't come off as a surprise.

But the question I wanna ask is, "Is Tab's edge in these two departments (and perhaps in few other areas like brand image, maybe) enough to explain the roughly Php 15,000 price difference?" You tell me.

I haven't really played with Samsung Galaxy Tab yet and as such, I can't really say anything about its construction or feel in the hand. Is it plasticky? I don't know. Maybe you can turn to other tech blogs in the Philippines for information regarding that and let me know. Samsung actually showed the device to a few bloggers earlier today -- but I chose not to go to their lunch meet as I had to attend to other more important stuff.

What I'm very sure about though is that Cherry Mobile Superion's construction is nothing short of stellar. The case is a stunning combination of glass and metal; I'd say its design identity is highly reminiscent of that of iPhone 4. Superion feels incredibly solid in the hand, that I can promise you.

  3. nuts spec sheet. It doesn`t present internal memory .. galaxy tab has 16GB-32GB but cherry shit doesn`t have any.. It`s big defference.. and there`s no mention about video codec.. Simply saying, galaxy tab can play HD video.(that`s waht graphics accelator`s do)

    look similar... and seems like nothing defferent. but it has huge gap

    that`s why people don`t trust "made in china "

  4. screen size is the same, but the galaxy tab has a much higher resolution. superion (i think) is at 800x600, and the tab's resolution is even higher than the ipad (in terms of pixel density)

  5. the galaxy tab's construction is much sturdier considering that it has gorilla glass (same kind of glass found on cars) which is scratch proof and shatter resistant which you wouldnt probably find on any local or china products.

    and most of the money you spend in the g tab is on the construction..
