The iPad mini 3 features a little more vivid screen than Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro 10.1, because although it has a bit worse resolution of 1536 x 2048 and a much smaller screen, it also counts with a little bit greater number of pixels in each inch of display. IPad mini 3 has a bit better processor than Galaxy Tab Pro 10.1, because although it has less and slower CPU cores and 1 GB lesser RAM, and they both have a 600 MHz graphics co-processor, the iPad mini 3 also counts with a 64-bits CPU.

The iPad mini 3 has a much greater storage capacity for games and applications than Galaxy Tab Pro 10.1, because although it has no SD memory slot, it also counts with 128 GB internal memory capacity. Galaxy Tab Pro 10.1 features just a little bit longer battery duration than iPad mini 3, because it has an 8220mAh battery size against 6350mAh.

The iPad mini 3 counts with a much better camera than Galaxy Tab Pro 10.1, although it has a lower 1920x1080 (Full HD) video resolution and a camera in the back with a lot lower resolution.

Although iPad mini 3 is a better device, it costs more than the Galaxy Tab Pro 10.1, and it doesn't have such a good price and quality relation as the Galaxy Tab Pro 10.1. So if you want that extra specs, you can buy the iPad mini 3, else you can save a couple dollars and buy the Galaxy Tab Pro 10.1, letting go a couple features and specifications.
