Samsung Ativ Tab Review

64 GB (P8510)     See other variants reviews Score: 66.7 / 100

Samsung Ativ Tab is a complete Windows tablet launched back in the year 2012, having an extremely fast Dual-Core processing unit ticking at 1.5 gigahertz, a huge 10.1-inches multi touch display, and 2 cameras, a 5 mega-pixels back facing camera and a 1.9 MP front camera. Great! That's it? No, it's just the shortest summary in the world.

This tablet is just 10.46" long, but it is able to fit a a 10.1" screen. Being just 0.35 inches thick,this device is incredibly slim and practical. This time, it seems like Samsung forgot about weight optimization in this 20.11 ounces tablet.

The Samsung Ativ Tab is equipped with a interesting 768 x 1366 10.1 inches screen, giving this tablet device a mid level graphical experience. Its screen uses LCD capacitive technology, and can detect multi touch gestures.

Samsung decided to power this tablet using a Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Plus APQ8060A chip, which holds an exceptional Dual-Core CPU clocking at 1500 megahertz with a large 2 GB of RAM memory. Graphic intensive applications generally uses lots of CPU processing time, so it has an additional Adreno 225 GPU ticking at 400 MHz to unload the processor. This tablet counts with an awesome 64 GB internal memory and an external SD slot, which allows you to install hundreds of applications without having to worry about running out of space.

This tablet is equipped with two cameras, a 5 mega-pixels back facing camera and a 1.9 megapixels front facing camera. The Samsung Ativ Tab also shoots HD 1280x720 videos. This camera also counts with a couple of interesting features: auto-focus, flash and geo tagging.

The Samsung Ativ Tab comes with a big capacity 8200 mAh Li-Ion non-replaceable battery that provides this device a marvelous battery life. An issue to take into consideration is that this device's battery is not removable so you can't throw it away and buy a new one when it starts losing capacity, even though with such a big battery you will probably replace this tablet before that becomes an issue.

This tablet features wi-fi capability (although it can't share it with other devices around, acting as a wireless modem or router). The Samsung Ativ Tab doesn't use a sim card, because it doesn't support GSM services.

This tablet also comes with some cool features like Near Field Communication (NFC), Bluetooth and GPS, and lots of sensors like Light Sensor, Accelerometer, Gyroscope and Compass.

This tablet is priced about $ 650, which is very expensive for this type of portable tablet. The Samsung Ativ Tab is a great choice it doesn't matter whether you want this tablet to play lots of games, are looking for a work tablet, you love taking photographs or need a portable tablet mainly for internet broswing and social networks.
