Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro 12.2 is an incredible device released back in the year 2014, equipped with a large 12.2 inches display, a high performance Quad-Core CPU speeding at 2.3 GHz, an 8 MP back-facing camera and a 2 megapixels front side camera. Let's take a better view of what this tablet has to offer.

Samsung decided to equip this tablet with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 MSM8974 system chip, packing an extremely powerful Quad-Core processor clocking at 2300 megahertz and a huge 3 GB RAM memory. Graphic intensive tasks often uses a lot of CPU time, so it also also has an Adreno 330 GPU running at 450 megahertz to unload the processor. An excellent aspect of this tablet is the 64 GB big internal storage and an external memory slot, which allows the user to store hundreds of applications and even the heaviest games available nowadays without worrying about how much memory is left.

While this tablet only has 11.64" long, it is able to fit a a 12.2" display. Being just 0.31" thick,this tablet is very slim and stilized. Samsung has made an excellent optimization job making the Tab Pro 12.2 weight just 26.1 oz.

The Tab Pro 12.2 has two cameras, an 8 megapixels back-facing camera and a 2 mega-pixels front side camera. This tablet also captures videos in Full HD 1920x1080 at 60 frames per second. This device also has some useful characteristics: auto-focus, flash and geo tagging.

Samsung designed this tablet with a good looking 12.2" screen, and a resolution of 1600 x 2560 , which makes it hard to distinguish the pixels in the screen. This screen uses Super Clear LCD capacitive technology, and can detect multiple fingers at the same time.

The Tab Pro 12.2 has a high capacity 9500 mAh non-removable battery providing the Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro 12.2 an incredible battery life. An issue to take into account is that this tablet's battery is non-replaceable so you can't change it when it starts losing capacity, whereas with such a great capacity you will probably replace this tablet before it happens.

The Tab Pro 12.2 has Wi-Fi connectivity (and it can share it with other devices acting as a mobile hotspot), LTE (4G) high performance data connection and also HSPA+ internet connection, that is a slower 4G variation and the fastest 3G internet connection, supported by HSDPA, UMTS and EDGE technologies. The Tab Pro 12.2 works with a SIM card for GSM connection.

The Tab Pro 12.2 also comes with a couple useful characteristics such as Infrared Port, Bluetooth (4.0) and GPS Navigation, and lots of sensors like Light Sensor, Accelerometer, Gyroscope and Compass.

This tablet may not be a good choice considering it is offerred for 249 dollars, while many similar devices are sold for a bit less than that. It doesn't matter whether you want a work tablet device, are an amateur photographer, want this tablet to play games or will use this tablet majorly for internet broswing and social networks, you will definitely love this tablet.
