Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 8.0 is a simple, smooth operator
The 8-inch Samsung tablet is a basic midrange model with useful multitasking abilities.
Simple slate at a steep price
The Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 8.0 is a basic midsize tablet powered by the feature-packed Touchwiz UI. However, its slow-but-steady performance and plastic build make its $270 starting price a bit of a deal-breaker for bargain shoppers.
A 1,280x800-pixel resolution screen is standard for a budget tablet, but at $270, the Galaxy Tab 4 8.0 doesn't qualify as one. The screen's sharpness and range of colors are still decent, but it's far from the likes of the super-HD Amazon Kindle Fire HDX 8.9 or the higher-end Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro 8.4 tablets.
