Both the devices have an excellent build quality, with better hardware onboard. Google recently announced that Chrome OS will now be supporting Android apps on all eligible devices.

Samsung Chromebook Pro has an LPDDR3 stick onboard compared to the standard RAM implemented on its competitor. There's an inbuilt HD webcam on both the models.
The report also suggests that audio on both the devices are fairly basic with average quality indicating that it's better to get an external speaker or a headphone whichever suits the purpose. Meanwhile, 9To5Google has come out with a detailed review for the Asus Chromebook Flip C302CA.
There's a USB Type-C port on the C302CA from Asus, while there are two ports on the Chromebook Pro from Samsung. Additionally, Samsung has also put in a stylus for the Chromebook Pro that, in-turn offers various on-screen features when pulled out. Asus has used a 12.5-inch display for their Chromebook with a resolution of 1080p while the Chromebook Pro is slightly smaller with a 12.3-inch touchscreen display but with a better resolution of 2400x1600.
