Today we will compare the Surface Pro 4 and iPad Pro, two hybrid tablets that have been released by Microsoft and Apple. Both devices come with some pretty good specifications and if you’ve been wondering which one of them suits your needs better, then you’re in the right place to find out.
The Surface Pro 4 measures 292.10×201.42×8.45mm and weights 786 grams. The 2-in-1 tablet has a magnesium alloy which is pretty nice, and the Typce Cover that’s attached to it is slim and available in multiple colors. On the other hand, the iPad Pro is thinner and lighter as it measures 304.8×220.5×6.9mm and weights 723 grams, but its body is made of aluminum. The downside is that users need to buy not only the keyboard, but the stylus as well.
The Surface Pro 4 has a display size of 12.3-inch that supports a resolution of 2736×1824 pixels at 267 ppi. The iPad Pro comes with a bigger IPS LCD display of 12.9-inch that supports a resolution of 2732×2048 pixels at 265 ppi.
Processors, Graphics Cards & RAM
The Surface Pro 4 has an Intel Core-i7 processor, an Intel Iris 540 graphics card and 16GB of RAM. The iPad Pro comes with a dual-core Twister ARMv8-A processor clocked at 2.26GHz, a PowerVR Series 7XT graphics card and 4GB of RAM.
The Surface Pro 4 has been released with an internal storage of 1TB while the iPad Pro has an internal storage of only 128GB. In addition, the Surface Pro 4 features a microSD card slot which allows you to expand the storage of the device up to 256GB.
These two handsets sport a primary camera of 8MP, but when it comes to the secondary camera the Surface Pro 4 has a slightly more advanced one of 5MP, while the iPad Pro offers a 1.2MP camera.
The Surface Pro 4 is powered by a non-removable battery of 5087 mAh, while the iPad Pro has a bigger one of 10307 mAh. However, according to reports, the Surface Pro 4’s battery can hold the device “alive” for 9 hours (mixed usage), while the iPad Pro can last up to 10 hours. It seems that Microsoft has found a way to make the battery use less energy, without wasting any processing power.
