Samsung has announced 3 beautiful (atleast they seemed to be) new tablets at the CES 2014 held at Las Vegas. Today we are going to talk about our experience with the Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro 8.4. It certainly is a great tablet, but is it worth your money? Read about it and you will probably find the answer.
Samsung surely have done their bit to produce a great looking tablet. At first glance you will really love the way it looks. Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro 8.4 is sleek and just looks really sharp with all the correct curves and subtle dimensions. It is a better quality of polycarbonate we have seen on Samsung products. Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro 8.4 fits pretty well in your hands. The flat back is really glossy and grips your hands well enough.
They are calling this the “Pro” for a reason. With a full HD display on board, it is an instant attraction for many consumers who just love that word full HD. Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro 8.4 as the name suggests has an 8.4 inch full HD display. It really is certainly the best from Samsung. The sharp detailing and vivid colours make you fall in love with this display with no second doubts.
Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro 8.4 has a stunningly nice 8MP camera on board at the back and a 2MP front facing camera. The 8MP sensor does a really good jog to capture moment, it might just be too good for a tablet camera. You can very well use this for a great profile picture and even in that moment of crisis on vacation where you forgot to bring your actual camera. The video capturing is done in full HD and it really looks over saturated but good anyway.
Do you get Android v4.4 KitKat on board? Yes you do. And it obviously comes with TouchWiz whether you like it or not. You can get all your apps from Google Play store and Samsung is giving away $25 of credit for Google Play store and 50GB of Dropbox storage for 2 years. The ToucWiz would give you the Smart Pause and Smart Stay features that are so famous since the Samsung Galaxy S4.
Another huge reason as to why Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro 8.4 was tagged Pro is because what gives this tablet the juice. It is the Snapdragon 800, the HULK of all processors. It will give you the seamless experience that you starve for so much. It comes with 2GB of RAM to support all the multitasking in the world you would want to do. Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro 8.4 is available in 2 models the 16Gb one and the 32GB one both of which are expandable to up to 64GB.
