Reviews for the Samsung Galaxy Tab4 7.0

60% Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 7.0
Source: PC Mag English
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.

Model:

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.

7.0": This is one of the smallest formats, which is used for UMPC, Netbooks or Subotebooks. There hardly exist any models with this display format. Working for a long time is uncomfortable. This tiny display is intended for outdoor usage.
The advantage is, that the mini-notebook can be small dimensioned and can be carried easily. Further the tiny display has the advantage, that it needs few energy, which improves the battery runtime and in consequence the mobility. The disadvantage is that the reading of texts is very exhausting for the eyes. High resolutions can hardly be used. » To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


0.278 kg: This subnotebook is one of the most lightweight of all notebooks and can be carried very easily. There exist hardly any models in this extreme class of weight. 7-9 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.


Samsung: The Samsung Group is composed of numerous international businesses, all united under the Samsung brand in South Korea. The meaning of the Korean word Samsung is "tristar" or "three stars". The Samsung brand is one of the most important brands of South Korea. Samsung is an international notebook manufacturer of medium size according market shares and reviews.
