Reviews for the Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 Nook

50% Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 NOOK

Barnes and Noble's attempt to co-brand a tablet with Samsung is very much mixed in terms of the results. The tablet is decently constructed but looks no different than the Samsung device it is based upon. Instead, you pay more to get some content and the Barnes and Noble applications loaded onto it.

The nearly 11 hours of battery life on the Galaxy Tab 4 Nook makes a pretty compelling reason to consider picking one up for the family. And for $179 you'll get the lightweight slate with $200 worth of Barnes & Noble content, as well as access to some fun Samsung extras such as multitasking. Sadly, the parental controls are painfully complicated and the performance is sub-par.

The Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 Nook is a decent entry-level device, but I don't see the market for it other than existing Barnes & Noble fans, and those already with substantial Nook libraries. Otherwise, it's a rather generic tablet that excels in no one area, and one that has even more custom software than the already bloated non-Nook version. It's even a step down in display resolution from the Nook HD, which was one of my favorite low-cost tablets.

Samsung recently released a reading experience focused device in the form of the Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 Nook. Nook’s award-winning reading capabilities coupled with Samsung’s hardware certainly pack a potent dose for the multitasking user. The form factor is kept similar to all of Samsung’s mid range tablets with its simple white chassis.

The Android 4.4 Kit Kat device comes with a 7 inch WXGA TFT display at 1280 X 800 pixel resolution, which enables bright and vivid images. At the core of the device is a 1.2 GHz quad-core processor, 1.5 GB RAM and 8 GB internal storage. The storage capacity can be extended up to 32 GB using the MicroSD slot. This is a welcome option for those looking to store an endless supply of digital books while keeping other forms on digital media on hand.

There is a 3 mega-pixel rear camera and 1.3 mega-pixel front facing camera that does the job. The Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 Nook has a battery life of up to 10 hours for internet usage or video playback thanks to its 4000 mAh lithium ion cell. Other hardware includes dual-band Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0 and GPS capabilities.


These graphics cards are not suited for Windows 3D games. Office and Internet surfing however is possible.

Only a few smartphones have larger screens.
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.

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.

In 2015 and 2016, Samsung had a market share of around 24-25% in the global smartphone market and was undisputed market leader. In the laptop sector, Samsung is on the 8th place in the global manufacturer rankings from 2014-2016 with 1.7-2.7%.


In 2016 Samsung slipped into a crisis due to exploding smartphone batteries and a failed recall action.

62.5%: Such a bad rating is rare. There exist hardly any notebooks, which are rated worse.
