Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro 8.4 review
Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro 8.4 isn’t the largest or even the most affordable tablet out there. It’s quite sure. His story is fairly different. This 8.4-inch tablet offers a good design, lots of good software and performance that enable him run smoothly. At the same time, Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro 8.4, thanks to its fantastic screen with 2560×1600 pixels and a new Magazine interface, delivers the best image quality in this tablet category. Enough reason Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro 8.4 is taken as one of the best in its class. However, the pleasure has its price, and if you are not a person with a big budget, it wouldn’t be bad to have a cheaper alternative in mind.
Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro 8.4 Design
Following the example of big brother Samsung in its design included faux-leather back cover. Some people like it, some don’t, but in hands this tablet leaves a good impression. The design is modern, build quality is very good and 331g weight is quite acceptable. Tablet has smooth, rounded edges and it feels light and soft in your hands. Thanks to the small dimensions it can be used with one hand.
Tablet is designed primarily for a portrait position. In vertical position below the screen there are classic home button with capacitive companion. This can be a problem when using the device in a landscape mode, as you will often accidentally press the buttons so it takes some time to get used to it. At the top there is a secondary 2MP camera which is a practical feature, though not with some special image quality, but in any case does its job.
Edges of the phone are coated with metal finish, and it looks much better than deviced only made with plastics. Besides leather imitation, the back is filled up with 8MP camera with LED flash. The power button and volume rocker sit on the right side.
Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro 8.4 Software
Magazine interface is something the freshest that Samsung offers in this field. The features are similar to those of the previous interface, but instead of traditional widgets this one is dominated by apps in the form of tiles. If you sympathize Windows Phone home screen, this interface can be fun. For those who love classic icons on the screen, TouchWizz is a better solution.
Samsung Galaxy Pro 8.4 Specs and Performance
With Snapdragon 800 processor at 2.3 GHz there’s no mistake. There is also an Adreno 330 graphics and 2GB of memory RAM and options of 16 and 32GB of internal storage and microSD slot. There is also an infrared port, Bluetooth 4.0, HDMI, and it’s produced in 3G and LTE versions. Pretty much everything is here.
With 359 pixels per inch, Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro 8.4 is one of the best in the world of tablets. Beside super sharp image quality, screen has excellent viewing angles. Therefore, this tiny tablet is perfect if you want to watch movies in high definition and play video games.
Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro 8.4 Camera
If you don’t lose from sight that this is a tablet, the camera is pretty good. The main camera takes pretty clear pictures. Pleasant surprise is that the flash works very well, so even at night, photos are not bad at all. Without flash the results are worse, and I recommend to use flash in low light conditions. We have already said that the front camera is quite average, while the video is slightly grayed out and blurred.
Tablet has two bottom speakers that are very good. The sound is pure pleasure, and Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro 8.4 can serve as a good replacement for an mp3 player.
