Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 8.0
Source: Hot Hardware English
All in all, the Galaxy Tab 4 8.0 has a lot of good things going for it and is worthy of consideration at its price point. As is the case with many tablets, there are tradeoffs to consider and users will have to decide which features are most valuable, but all in all, the Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 8.0 is a good value for the money.

50% Galaxy Tab 4 8.0 review: Feels like a mid-range tablet from last year
Source: Greenbot English
The Tab 4 8.0 comes with a better processor than its Tab 3 predecessor, and while that's nothing to scoff at, the differences basically end there. Before you decide that the Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 8.0 is right for you, I'd strongly recommend that you consider the competition. For only $34 more, you can buy the LG G Pad 8.3, which comes with more RAM, faster CPU, a larger and higher resolution display, bigger battery, and better build quality. It may lack some of the software on Samsung's offering, but as long as it's available at that price point, the Galaxy Tab 4 8.0 just doesn't seem worth the difference in features or performance.

The Galaxy Tab 4 8.0 is a rather average mid-range offering from Samsung that should get you where you need to go, but doesn't have a whole lot to recommend it. Sumsung needs to make bigger upgrades to its affordable tablet line next year.

Samsung's Galaxy Tab line is a case study in "if it ain't broke, don't fix it." Every year brings updated software and a mild hardware refresh, but little that distinguishes it from its predecessors or its peers. It'll suffice for most needs, but the Tab 4 8.0 is an update for update's sake. The LG G Pad 8.3 is the more capable device of the two, and you can find it online for around $300 online or pony up $350 for the pure Google G Pad. The Galaxy Tab Pro 8.4 is better than the Tab 4 in every way, too, but is much pricier at $400.

Model:

Samsung has opted just to upgrade the Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.0 line instead of showing any new innovation in design or technology. There is no doubt that this tablet is mediocre in most aspects and it's more of a "get the job done" kind of device. The tablet comes in the usual two colors, black or white, omitting the glossy plastic for the now common faux-leather solution. The size makes it suitable to grip with one hand; depending on the users hand size.

The device is powered by a Qualcomm quad-core 1.2 GHz processor coupled with 1.5 GB RAM and 16 GB internal storage, depending on the variant. There is also an option to increase memory using a MicroSD card up to 64 GB. The display is an 8 inch 1280 X 800 pixel WXGA TFT panel which gives plenty detail to the average user.

The Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 8.0 comes with a rear 3 MP rear camera and a 1.3 MP front camera. The entire setup is powered with a 4450 mAh Lithium-ion battery and gives up to 12 hours of Internet use time. In conclusion, the Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 8.0 will always perform as an Android 4.4 KitKat device is expected to.
