Except for in China and India, I still can't stand using iPad OS but unless there's a tablet maker doing a better job than apple of Huawei the market is really non competitive.... There needs to be more enthusiasast grade tablets

And it is more powerful, 2018 iPad pro was at the same performance level with the macbook pro 2018.
Of course you can't do everything on it, but with the introduction of iPad OS and also being that is almost half the price of a macbook pro, a lot of professionals are going towards ipad pros nowadays. And that is why I wanted to show with my comment.
For me, being I am not a professional who can work from home (like artists, or music enthusiasts, etc.), and I don't like media consumption on small screens, I really don't care or understand tablets in general, especially ipads.

Samsung Tab S line has almost as powerful speakers as iPad Pro - it's not as full sounding, but it's way louder.
Plus even my 12" passively cooled laptop can scream louder than most tablets, I am really not sure what dell laptop you are referring to, but you can always find a laptop with weak speakers ... same as you can find laptop with loud speakers.

I used to have an ipad air 2 is twice as loud and clear as my dell laptop lol.
All new ipads sound better than any other android tablet and it has been the case for 3-4 years now.

LG makes tablets? O.o Really? That's not sarcasm or anything. They must be really bad, because I never even saw one.

I stoped counting my tablets) owner here and the Tab S4 is crisp and clear, not muffled unlike every other iPad but an iPad Pro that has even better, fuller sounding speakers.
Even my old Note 10.1 ed 2014 sounds better, even through my daughter covered speakers with marmalade ... that was fun to clean up.
Maybe you tried Samsung Tab but not Tab S line, because low end Tab(s) really used weak speakers in past.

Ouch, talk about shooting yourself in the foot.
This is an article about "2019 tablet application processor market", not about "tablet market". They are two totally different things. Very sloppy.

I found the sound muffled when watching a movie on Netflix or listening to a podcast. With the volume all the way up it wasn't clear to hear dialogue. Maybe my device was faulty, but there was a lot of other things I didn't care for, so I returned it.

An LG G Pad. Only those two. I found that performance wasn't great and the speakers were muffled on those devices. I like the size to be 7" or 8" for portability, I don't need anything bigger than that.
I agree with the 4:3 video playback, I wish Apple would changed that. I prefer iPad OS over what the hell Sammy and LG is doing with their tablets. Also, application compatibility (phone apps instead of apps made for a tablet) on Android OS needs a lot of work.

Kinda sounds like it's better because "it's better" not because you ever compared it ...
