Personally speaking, the phablets they have produced- which include the Galaxy Mega and Galaxy Note 3 carry great promise for customers who want a tablet feel with voice connectivity. If a consumer is on a tablet hunt, the level of price and resolution may be the tipping factor in this match of the titans.
