You can check out full specs on the iPad mini 4 and Galaxy Tab S2 8.0 in our launch articles on each at the links provided. They are natural competition against each other although some people will be able to choose between them purely based on their preference of Apple’s iOS or Google’s Android operating platforms.
As a brief refresher we’ll say that the iPad mini 4 has an 1.5GHz Apple A8 dual-core processor, a 7.9-inch IPS LCD display with resolution of 2048 x 1536 resolution, and internal storage models of 16, 64 and 128GB (non-expandable). It runs Apple’s new iOS 9 out of the box. The Galaxy Tab S2 8.0 has an octa-core processor (4 cores at 1.9GHz and 4 at 1.3GHz), an 8-inch Super AMOLED display with resolution of 2048 x 1536, and 32 or 64GB of internal storage (expandable to 128GB with microSD card).
