Samsung ATIV Tab 5 is an impressive tablet launched back in the year 2012, having a large 11.6 inches touch-screen, a high speed Dual-Core processor running at 1800 MHz, and 2 cameras, an 8 mega-pixels back camera and a 2 megapixels front-facing camera.

Samsung decided to design the Samsung ATIV Tab 5 using a very powerful Dual-Core CPU ticking at 1800 MHz and a huge 2 GB RAM. The Samsung ATIV Tab 5 has a impressive 128 GB internal memory and an SD card slot, allowing the user to install hundreds of applications without worrying about filling it.

This device is only available in color blue. The Samsung ATIV Tab 5 is just 11.97" long, but it manages to hold a 11.6 inches display. Being just 0.39 inches thick,the Samsung ATIV Tab 5 is extremely slim and comfortable. Samsung didn't seem to put much effort to reduce weight in this 26.46 oz tablet device.

The Samsung ATIV Tab 5 has two cameras, an 8 mega-pixels back side camera and a 2 megapixels front facing camera. In addition, the camera features flash.

Its screen uses LCD capacitive technology, and can detect multiple fingers at the same time.

This device packs a 4080 mAh large Li-Ion non-removable battery that would have been good if this device didn't consume so much energy for its processor and screen. A key issue to take into account is that this device's battery is non-replaceable so you can't buy a new battery when it begins to last shorter, having to buy a new tablet to "solve it" or maybe take the tablet device to someone who can open it and switch its battery.

This tablet features wi-fi capability (but it can't provide it to other devices as a mobile hotspot), 4G (LTE) high speed connection type and fast 3G connection type, over HSPA technologies. This tablet doesn't use a sim card, because it doesn't support GSM connections.

This device also includes Bluetooth (enables communication with other bluetooth tablets and accessories), and a few sensors likeLight Sensor and Accelerometer.

This tablet is priced $ 230, which is rather expensive for this kind of tablet. The Samsung ATIV Tab 5 is definitely the correct option for you no matter whether you want a social tablet device, love photography, want a gamer tablet or need it for work.
