Reviews for the Samsung Galaxy Tab Active 3

70% Samsung Galaxy Tab Active 3 review: Rough and tumble
Source: Pocket Lint English
The more we lived with the Galaxy Active Tab 3, the more we wondered why it's on both Samsung's business and consumer website sections. It's clearly more aligned with the former, as at this price point it's so far removed from a consumer-grade tough tablet for the kids that it won't make sense for, well, almost anyone. We thought that might have been a good angle for such a products, but if that's your thinking then save several hundred and pick up an Amazon tablet instead. The fact is many consumer lifestyle products now offer some degree of rugged protection, more up-to-date designs, and as such the Active Tab 3 is therefore best left to who it's really for: the workforce. It's not bad by any means, it's just kind-of retro and somewhat lost for purpose in a consumer context.

With military-grade protection and IP68 water and dust resistance, the Tab Active 3 is a great option for people working outside or in extreme environments. For a pure tablet experience, though, there are better options.

Overall, we feel that the Galaxy Tab Active3 is another solid entry from Samsung in the arena of rugged tablet. Just be sure to temper your expectations when it comes to flagship performance and truly tablet-worthy applications. For first responders, field workers and outdoor types alike, however, it's a very solid option.

The Galaxy Tab Active 3 is the very definition of a niche device, and one that lacks the performance and refinement for most people. For those who value robustness above all else, however, it’s a pretty tough tablet to beat.

This display size is a threshold between tablets and smartphones. Most tablets have larger screen diagonals but a lot of smartphones offer such a big screen.

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.


80%: This rating is not convincing. The laptop is evaluated below average, this is not really a recommendation for purchase.
