The Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 is a good tablet at a great price
Hey, I'm Nate, and today we're checking out the Galaxy Tab 4. This is a seven inch tablet with a quad core processor that runs Android 4.4 KitKat, and it's available for $179.99.
So the Galaxy Tab 4 doesn't exactly break new ground in the budget tablet space.
But it offers just enough good stuff at a bargain price.
It's not much of a looker.
You're getting a plastic slab available in your choice of white or black.
The 7 inch display has a 1280 by 800 pixel resolution.
That's obviously lower than higher-end models.
But it actually looks pretty good.
Colors don't look dull, and stay true even when you hold the tablet at weird angles.
It's a little glossy, but keep it out of direct sunlight and you'll be fine.
The 8 gigabytes of storage is disappointing, and all too common on cute tablets.
But there's a micro-SD slot with room for a 32 gig card.
So you've got a bit of room to grow there.
The quad core processor is nice and zippy for its general use.
And you'll [UNKNOWN] to menu with these.
It can get a little sluggish when things get busy though.
And you can choke on hiring games like Dead Trigger Two.
There are a pair of cameras.
1.3 megapixs on the front, 3 megapixs on the rear.
Neither one is very good.
Now my biggest gripe is the one I always have with Samsung devices, there's a lot going on here.
Samsung's touch with interface takes over the whole device, changing the fundamental Android experience.
It adds a lot of new things some are cool like the multi window feature that let's you split the screen in two.
Performance does take a bit of a hit, but it makes way for real multi tasking on a tablet which is great.
And then there are things like S Force which just duplicates features baked into Google Now, it's all going to boil down to user preference I prefer the pure Android experience.
And that's the Galaxy Tab four.
So, it's not exactly a game changer.
And you know what?
You're getting good performance at a good price with a nice display and it runs the latest version of android.
All that for $179.99 after a 20 dollar rebate.
If you're looking for a budget device you can't really go wrong here.
I'm, Nate Ralph.
Thanks for watching.
