Samsung ATIV Tab 5 is a good tablet launched in 2012, packed with a 11.6 inches multi touch screen, a good 1800 megahertz Dual-Core processing unit, and two cameras, an 8 MP back facing camera and a 2 MP front side camera.

Samsung just offers this tablet in color blue. This tablet feels a bit heavy for a tablet this size, with a weight of 26.46 oz. The Samsung ATIV Tab 5 has a gorgeous design, with a thickness of just 0.39 inches. Although the Samsung ATIV Tab 5 is just 11.97 inches long and 7.46" wide, it still manages to hold a 11.6" screen.

Its display uses LCD capacitive technology, and allows multi-touch for gestures like pinch and zoom.

Samsung decided to power this tablet with a powerful 1.8 gigahertz Dual-Core processing unit and a huge 2 GB of RAM memory. A key advantage of this tablet is its 128 GB big internal storage and a slot for SD memory cards, which allows the user to install hundreds of apps and even the largest games available nowadays without thinking about how much memory is left.

This device has wifi connection (but it can't provide it to other devices as a mobile mobile hotspot), LTE 4G high speed connection type or the fastest 3G data connection, supported by HSPA technologies. The Samsung ATIV Tab 5 doesn't have a SIM card, because it isn't a GSM tablet.

The Samsung ATIV Tab 5 is equipped with two cameras, an 8 mega-pixels back camera and a 2 megapixels front camera. This camera also features flash.

The Samsung ATIV Tab 5 also includes Bluetooth (4.0), and some sensors likeLight Sensor and Accelerometer.

The Samsung ATIV Tab 5 has a big 4080 mAh Li-Ion non-removable battery that would have been great if this tablet didn't spend so much energy for its processor and screen. A possible problem to take into account is that the Samsung ATIV Tab 5's battery isn't removable so you can't buy a new battery when it starts losing capacity, making it necessary to change the whole device or maybe take the tablet to someone who can disassemble it and change its battery.

This tablet is a little outdated device and it is priced $ 230, quite the same as other similar tablets. No matter if you will use it mostly for internet broswing and social networks, need a work device or want this tablet for playing games, you will probably be very pleased with it.
