Reviews for the Samsung Galaxy Tab4 7.0
Source: PC Mag
There's a ton of competition in the 7-inch realm, but even two years after its release (and one year after the latest incarnation), the Google Nexus 7$229.00 at Adorama continues to trump new options that simply can't match its blend of performance, features, and price. Samsung's unimaginative update does little to gain any ground on the Nexus 7. Still, for those already wed to Samsung's services or content, the Galaxy Tab 4 7.0 is a completely capable device.
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 co

Samsung is joining the crowded space of 7-inch tablets with its Galaxy Tab 4 7.0. It does not really separate itself from other members of the pack and is more for those that are already in the Samsung ecosystem and not looking for anything new.
The Tab 4 lacks the impressive displays Samsung is known for. Its 7 inch screen has a resolution of 1280 x 800. While not that great to look at, it gets the job done even on text-heavy apps and websites. Colors and viewing angles could be better since it is a normal LCD.
Samsung’s UI is known to require a little extra horsepower to run smoothly. The Tab is powered by a quad core processor running at 1.2 GHz and 1.5 GB of RAM, which is good enough for a lot of the apps available. It will get the job done but do not expect speedy performances here. It comes with 8 GB worth of storage, which is expandable via microSD.
The cameras are nothing to shout about, sporting a 3 MP rear camera and a 1.3 MP front camera. They are sufficient for simple shots and video calling but nothing more than that. The 4000 mAh battery is claimed to have a video playback time of 10 hours, which is a solid number, just enough before needing a charge. There are other tablets available but for those invested in Samsung, this can be a good option.

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.
This weight is typical for smartphones.
