The ATT version uses an exynos processor just like the wifi version. Performance will be the same. It is locked to ATT, and unlocking it is a difficult process. If you call att they will ask you to go to att.com/deviceunlock, however since the tab was never registered on the network you will most likely get an IMEI not found error message. Meaning, you have to activate on ATT first before trying to unlock.
The Verizon version uses a snapdragon 800 processor which I find is smoother and gets better battery life. I tested looping a video in VLC and got 8hrs of screen on time with burning about 60% of the battery at half brightness. Wifi and LTE browsing will drain the battery slightly faster. Overnight I lose about a 3% charge.
The Verizon version is GSM unlocked from the factory. I use it on T-Mobile and get 4g & LTE. Do not expect any software updates as the device was never officially launched on Verizon.
Both tablets only qualify for T-Mobile's free data if you have an existing or active paid plan. To qualify for the no strings attached free 200mb, the tablet must be listed here: Free T-mobile Data
You can request the tablet to be added here: Add Device
