Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 7.0 is a pretty good Android tablet released many years ago, featuring a quite powerful 1.2 GHz Quad-Core CPU, a quite big 7 inches display, a 3 MP back-facing camera and a 1.3 MP front facing camera. That's all? No, it's only the beginning.

Samsung decided to equip this device with a fast 1200 megahertz Quad-Core CPU, bundled in the Marvell PXA1088 system chip with a huge 1,5 GB RAM memory. The Tab 4 7.0 has an 8 GB interesting internal storage memory and a slot for SD memory cards, allowing the user to store a couple hundred applications without worrying about space.

The Tab 4 7.0 doesn't feel very lightweight for a tablet of this size, with a weight of 9.74 ounces. Samsung offers the Tab 4 7.0 in 2 different color options, black and white. Being just 0.35 inches thick,this tablet is incredibly slim and stilized. Even though this device just has 7.36 inches long and 4.25" wide, it manages to pack a 7" screen.

This tablet is equipped with two cameras, a 3 mega-pixels back side camera and a 1.3 mega-pixels front side camera. It is capable of shooting videos in 1280x720 (HD) at 30 fps. Additionally, this device's camera also has geo tagging.

The Tab 4 7.0 has a nice 1280 x 800 7-inches screen, which makes it hard to distinguish the pixels that compose the screen. Its screen uses LCD capacitive technology, and allows multi-touch for gestures like pinch and zoom.

This tablet features WiFi connectivity (which can be provided to other devices as a mobile hotspot), LTE 4G high performance connectivity and also HSPA+ connectivity, a slower 4G type or 3G fast connection type, over HSDPA, HSUPA and EDGE technologies. The Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 7.0 uses a SIM card for GSM networks and it can connect to both CDMA and GSM.

This device has a 4000 mAh long lasting non-replaceable battery that provides the Tab 4 7.0 an incredible battery life. An issue to evaluate is that this device's battery is non-replaceable so you can't buy a new battery when it begins losing capacity, while having 4000 mAh you will probably buy a new tablet before that happens.

This device also features some interesting features like Bluetooth (enables communication with other devices, computers, and accessories), GPS Localization and Near Field Communication (NFC), and Accelerometer.

The Tab 4 7.0 is being sold for $ 155, a low price for comparing with similar devices. No matter if you need it for work, will use this tablet for playing games or are looking for a tablet to mainly use social networks, this device is a very good choice for you.
