Shrinkage. Samsung’s new 8-inch tablet looks just like its larger sibling, the Galaxy Tab 9.7. The internals are very similar as well, but can the device offer the same amount of performance despite the reduced dimensions?

This display size is a threshold between tablets and smartphones. Most tablets have larger screen diagonals but a lot of smartphones offer such a big screen.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.
