The Samsung Tab S 8.4 faces off against the iPad Mini in our latest head-to-head review

Small form factor tablets have been one of the success stories of the past few years in the hardware market, with Samsung and Apple, unsurprisingly, leading the way.

As such our head-to-head battle between the firm’s latest products, the Galaxy Tab S 8.4 and iPad Mini, was always going to be of interest, with V3 readers flocking to see which devices would win.
