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.

It is a small display format for smartphones. You shouldn't be severely defective in vision, and you won't see much detail on the screen and only have a small resolution available. For that, the device should be small and handy, easy to transport.
