Jihaad, 13 Nov 2015I think the Surface pro 4 might be betterYou may be right. But I'll be honest, though - these two tablets are not by any means easy to compare. Really, the biggest factor will be which OS is better for YOU.

It's overpriced - I won't deny that. But it's performance as a tablet is second to none. And after-sales service (at least where I stay) is also second to none (unless the reseller is crappy - so know your reseller first).

I don't buy Apple products except the iPod, so I really don't care, but Acer, Sony and Huawei treated me exceptionally with their warranties. But Apple has their own warranty process here in Portugal.
It still has the 2 year warranty (DUH), but Apple always tries to f*ck Portuguese customers over.

Apple is not an premium smartphone it's only a smartphone. On the other hand Mercedes-Benz, BMW etc. Have diferencial "hardware" parts. There's no software war there. But it's useless try to explain this to someone with a opinion like yours.

I can buy an iDevice from US, go to EU and not worry about warranty. Do the same with any other smartphone or tablet and be prepared to pay big bucks.

Slightly lower, but Samsung doesn't have to pay for OS development and their chipset is made of off-the-shelf parts, not custom CPU cores which development again Apple pays for.
the high price of apple products surely benefitted for those staying in the country with official apple store as it commonly include insurance (like 1 by 1 replacement) and other beefits (like other after sales service) But if you live in a non-official apple store country like me, in Indonesia, you will not get such benefit and the price still can go higher.

Anonymous, 12 Nov 2015Not a chance Apple you're just ripping people off now and these people ae your loyal customers... moreThe problem, is the ones being ripped off do it by choice. This is what makes me facepalm.
Talking about the device, I still can't see the point of these HUGE resonance chambers for the tiny ass speakers, just let them sound that 10% worse and trow 2 bigger battery cells there, that would be like what, at least 60% extra capacity on an extremely lazy approximation. Also the space after the motherboard in center.... no idea what they did on this thing's construction...
Lol, 12 Nov 2015It's like that with every tablet or smartphone.Small correction - Its like that with every phone and tablet MADE BY APPLE. Other OEMs can only dream about it. That is why apple is having 90% of the entire smartphone business and other Android OEMs are mostly making loss.

Sun Sand, 12 Nov 2015One can bet the manufacturing cost of the device is just a fraction of the asking price -Around 25%.It's like that with every tablet or smartphone.
