The S4 Pro, like the 600, has Adreno 320 graphics and it's an overall very strong performer that's also power efficient for good battery life.

The display, though not high resolution, is bright and colorful thanks to Samsung's PLS technology that's similar to IPS, and the tablet is attractive even if it is cursed with Samsung's love of shiny plastic.

Benchmarks Real world tests of Xperia Tablet Z vs Galaxy Tab 3 10.1

geekbench Processor and memory performance

If you own the original Galaxy Tab 10.1 with the Tegra 2 CPU, the Tab 3 10.1's CPU provides significant performance improvements, but I'd still opt or a Tegra or Snapdragon-based tablet given the choice.

It's a much better display than the Xperia Z phone's display for black levels and viewing angles and it beats the higher resolution Nexus 10 for contrast and vibrancy.
