Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro 8.4 Review

3G Only (SM-T321)     See other variants reviews Score: 8.77

Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro 8.4 is a top-level device launched back in 2014, including an exceptional Quad-Core processor clocking at 2.3 gigahertz, a 8.4 inches multi touch screen, and two cameras, an 8 mega-pixels back facing camera and a 2 megapixels front camera.

This tablet is equipped with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 MSM8974 system chip, including an extremely powerful Quad-Core processor ticking at 2.3 gigahertz with a great 2 GB of RAM. Handling graphic rendering, it also uses an Adreno 330 GPU speeding at 450 megahertz. The Tab Pro 8.4 has a 16 GB quite big internal storage memory and an SD memory card expansion slot, which allows the user to install hundreds of games and apps without any trouble.

Samsung did a very good optimization job making this tablet weight only 11.82 oz. Although the Tab Pro 8.4 is only 8.62 inches long and 5.06" wide, it's still able to fit a a 8.4" display. This tablet is extremely slim and good-looking, with a thickness of just 0.28".

Samsung packed this tablet with an awesome 8.4-inches display, and a 2560 x 1600 resolution, which makes everything look absolutely great. Its display uses Super Clear LCD capacitive technology, and allows multi-touch gestures.

The Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro 8.4 is equipped with two cameras, an 8 MP back camera and a 2 megapixels front side camera. It can also shoot 1920x1080 Full HD videos at 60 frames per second. Additionally, the camera features a high number of interesting features: auto-focus, flash, smile detection shooting, face detection shooting, geo tagging and HDR mode.

The Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro 8.4 counts with a huge 4800 mAh non-removable battery that provides this tablet an extremely long battery duration. An issue to evaluate is that this tablet's battery isn't removable so you can't buy a new battery when it starts to get older, while with such a huge battery size you will probably replace this portable tablet before that becomes a real problem.

The Tab Pro 8.4 includes wi-fi connection (which can be shared with other devices as a mobile hotspot), LTE (4G) high performance connection and also HSPA+ internet connection, that is a slower 4G type and 3G fast data connection, using HSDPA, HSUPA, UMTS and EDGE technologies. This device works with a SIM card to connect to GSM networks.

The Tab Pro 8.4 also includes a couple of useful characteristics as Infrared Port, Bluetooth (allows communication with other tablet devices and accessories) and GPS Geolocation, and multiple sensors like Light Sensor, Accelerometer, Gyroscope and Compass.

The Tab Pro 8.4 is being sold for 289 dollars, not a very good offer for a tablet this level. The Tab Pro 8.4 is probably a good choice for you no matter whether you want a social tablet, want this device to take many pictures, need a tablet to play games or need this tablet for work.
