There's a new 8-incher in town

The 8.4-inch Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro is one smooth operator; it looks sleek and works fast, but costs a pretty penny. Starting at $399, the slate is so packed with features, if you gave me a dollar for every one I named, I'd have enough to buy a Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro 8.4 myself.

Loud speakers

The tablet's speakers go surprisingly loud and they aren't as screechy as other small tablets.

More storage please

With a microSD card expansion slot, you don't have to worry about running out of space, even if you go for the 16GB model instead of the 32GB one.

Bootsy buttons

The capacitive buttons on the bottom bezel (or left or right bezel depending on how you're holding it) are easy to accidentally trigger.

Good cameras -- for a tablet

Tablets don't usually have great cameras, but the Galaxy Tab Pro 8.4 is a rare case that merits a solid "OK." Any progress is progress?

Putting the Pro in Professional

The Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro 8.4 is great for watching movies and TV, with its sharp, colorful, and pixel-dense screen, but it also offers a variety of productivity apps that I'm sure Frank Underwood would make use of.
