Reason why is
M1 is deficient in the following
l1 cache 48kb vs 512kb.
slower memory latency, response times.
128 shaders vs 512...
The M1 is Vastly superior but in many(not all) real world applications can be the better performer.

The Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 is about 75% improvement on the 865+ in GPU bringing it above the m1 and CPU processing power may(don't know if the known bench were running reduced freq) still lag behind but unless they went dumb and gave it tiny l1 cache it should be significantly better then the 865+.

Only thing apple will have(assuming no improved m1 or new chip for 2022) is better application library which truly can matter for professionals, yet each year that becomes less of an argument.

Another argument that can be made is each year samsung adds more and more bloatware to tablets and refuses to let you stop then loading or uninstall.
Yet Apple is also guilty of this, its just Samsung(with google too) is far more guilty lately of this then Apple.

Most reviewers think ipad os needs to improve or go but Apple won't move over mac os

Why spend mega bucks on these devices when the software experience is far inferior compared to the iPad. What good is a 14+ inch screen if your apps are stretched out and look like a hot mess? It's the software that counts. Samsung needs to attract third party developers to its platform. And the emphasis is on Samsung, since Google abandoned Android tablets.

HatksuYT, 07 Dec 2021Looks amazing and 14.6 inch screen you kidding me cod mobil... morewhat are you talking about? it gets warm, but certainly not too hot, and brightness is even excessive. I doubt you really have it

SigmaR, 06 Dec 2021Or maybe the bezels just seem to be smaller cause the table... moreNo.

The ultra version looks fantastic. Such a tiny notch on a huge device like this actually looks great. Just compare it with iPhone's 11 PRO enormous, ugly notch and realize what percentage of the screen it covers xD xD

Vikass17, 06 Dec 2021There are phone in 25:9 , but not a single tab in 18:9.Lenovo used to make an 18:9 tablet with the 2019 Tab V7, but that's about it.

Looks amazing and 14.6 inch screen you kidding me cod mobile ll looks stunning 🀩 I bought iPad Pro M1 2TB and I am so so regret when I play the temperature get high and screen brightness goes dark shame on Apple

CS, 06 Dec 2021Why not a S8 mini to make the family complete. I think a mini would make more sense than the ultra.

Ns32, 06 Dec 2021Never was a notch fan but look how non- existant the bezel ... moreOr maybe the bezels just seem to be smaller cause the tablet it's bigger

Ns32, 06 Dec 2021Never was a notch fan but look how non- existant the bezel ... more*two

Never was a notch fan but look how non- existant the bezel is compared to the other too. I need that tablet. Pixel C was a great tablet but it's getting old and slow.

If I wasn't already never going to get a tablet in my life, the notch put the nail in the coffin.

Never going to buy this tablet because of the stupid notch! What was Samsung thinking?

It would be nice to have Ultra specs at the same size as the other tablets, I just feel like the ultra is ridiculously huge and not usable as a tablet you hold in your hands for a couple of hours.

Wanted the Ultra until the notch was confirmed. So going for the 12inch

There are phone in 25:9 , but not a single tab in 18:9.
