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.

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.

Model:

The Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 10.1 is Samsung’s latest effort to promote the Samsung Galaxy series. With not so encouraging response from the previous Tab 1, 2 and 3, Samsung hopes to make up for it with the Tab 4.

Exterior wise, the Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 10.1 looks quite decent. The compact size makes the tablet light as well, only weighing 1 pound and 1.3 ounces (0.49 kg). However, the tablet only comes in either white or black. The 10.1 inch display has a resolution of 1280 by 800 pixels which is pretty average by today’s standards. The colors are bright and sharp.

The tablet runs on a 1.2 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 quad core CPU with Adreno 305 Graphics. Truthfully, these are just very average specifications. It will not leave anybody in awe, but it won’t leave users in great disappointment as well. As for connectivity, the Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 10.1 does not come with any 3G/4G compatibility. Fortunately, it has 802.11 b/g/n WiFi and Bluetooth 4.0 compatibility.

All in all, the Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 10.1 is an average tablet aimed at casual users. It does not come with any major hardware or software, but comes with all the tools necessary for casual usage.

Qualcomm Adreno 305: Integrated mid-range graphics card in the Snapdragon 400 and S4 Plus SoCs that supports OpenGL ES 3.0 and features unified shaders.

10.1": The netbook/subnotebook has a quite small display format. Nonetheless, it is a common format for netbooks.
