The Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro 8.4 comes with Android 4.4.2 OS, while iPad Air counts with iOS 8.x OS.

Apple iPad Air features a little faster CPU than Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro 8.4, because although it has a smaller amount of RAM and 2 lesser and slower cpu cores, it also counts with a better graphics processing unit and a 64-bit processing unit. The Galaxy Tab Pro 8.4 features a little bit better screen than iPad Air, because although it has a little smaller display, it also counts with a better pixels number in each display inch and a little bit higher resolution of 2560 x 1600.

IPad Air counts with a way bigger memory capacity for applications, games, photos and videos than Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro 8.4, because although it has no slot for an external memory card, it also counts with 112 GB more internal storage. The Apple iPad Air features just a bit better camera than Galaxy Tab Pro 8.4, although it has a way lower resolution back-facing camera and a worse video resolution.

IPad Air counts with a much longer battery performance than Galaxy Tab Pro 8.4, because it has an 8820mAh battery capacity instead of 4800mAh.

Although Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro 8.4 is a better device, it costs a lot more money than the iPad Air, and it doesn't have such a good price and quality relation as iPad Air. So if you need that extra features, you can buy Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro 8.4, otherwise you can save some money and get the iPad Air, letting go some features and specifications.
