Reviews for the Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 10.1

82% Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 10.1 Tablet Review | Notebookcheck
Smartphone for giants. Hold a 10.1-inch tablet to your ear and make a call? Strange idea, but Samsung has offered this feature for a couple of years now. Our review shows why the fourth generation of the Galaxy Tab still stands out from the competition.
Nexus 9 vs Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 10.1 comparison: Google's Lollipop tablet is worth the extra
Source: PC Advisor English
The Galaxy Tab 4 10.1 might be cheaper but the newer Nexus 9 outclasses it in almost every area. This is understandable because it's newer so if you can jump the price gap, you'll be much better off with Google's flagship tablet.

Like its 7- and 8-inch siblings, the Galaxy Tab 4 10.1 exudes mediocrity. The competition isn't quite as fierce in the 10-inch space, and most every other manufacturer is defaulting towards the low-end for their large screen tablets. As such, the Tab 4 compares favorably with tablets like the Asus Transformer Pad TF103C and Lenovo A10£195.97 at Laptops Direct. The Tab 4 easily eclipses the A10, but at $299 with an included keyboard dock, the Transformer Pad is more useful and a better value.
