The variables here are obviously the two different devices. Both have very different operating systems and process files differently. I looked up the specs of the Samsung, thanks for providing the model number, and it does allow wifi connections at 802.11a/b/g/n with n being the fastest. Does your router show you the speed at which a device is connected? Example, if I go into my router, it'll show a device is connected at 54mpbs which is 802.11g. Even though n is available on the tablet, it may not be connecting at maximum speed with your router. Perhaps run a couple of the same tests on different wifi networks and see if you get the same results. If the results are the same as you experience at home, perhaps it's the device. If the result vary from wifi network to wifi network, it's most likely your settings within your router.
