80% Samsung Galaxy Tab Active 5 Review
Source: Trusted Reviews English
As might be expected, the market for rugged gadgets is quite niche. Not many people need their tablet to take a ridiculous drop in its stride or to be able to hot-swap batteries on the fly. Given that it is laser-targeted towards them, the Tab 5 is, therefore, something of a niche device for construction workers and hikers who need it. Therefore, its success as a general-purpose tablet is a testament to its overall quality. It has a fast, bright display, decent battery life, and enough processing power to handle most everyday tasks. Paired with a pair of decent cameras and a body that can take anything the house can throw at it (plus potentially an actual house), it’s a tablet with a lot to offer. This is with the caveat that it has a single speaker, doesn’t have a kickstand and, to some at least, a rather dated design.

This tablet is a curious combination of massive processing power with a small battery and a low-resolution camera. With the promised accessories, this could be a useful device, but the asking price is way too high for the memory and storage Samsung gave it.
