Samsung Galaxy Tab Active is a good quality Android tablet released many years ago, which features a comfortable 8" multi-touch capacitive screen, a powerful Quad-Core processor ticking at 1200 megahertz, a 3.1 MP back facing camera and a 1.2 MP front side camera. Let's take a closer look at what this tablet has to offer.

Samsung didn't seem to put much effort to reduce weight in this 13.86 oz tablet. Whereas this device only has 8.39" long and 4.97" wide, it still manages to pack a 8" display. The Tab Active has a gorgeous design, with a thickness of just 0.38 inches.

Samsung designed this tablet with a good 8 inches screen, and a resolution of 1280 x 800 , providing this device with a nice graphical experience. This screen uses TFT capacitive technology, and allows multi-touch gestures.

Samsung decided to design this device using a Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 8026 system chip, including a good performance Quad-Core processing unit running at 1200 MHz and a large 1,5 GB of RAM. Graphic intensive apps and games usually uses a lot of processing time, so it also has a 450 MHz Adreno 305 graphics processing unit to take care of them, leaving the processor free for other tasks. A nice feature of this tablet is its big 16 GB internal storage memory and an external memory card slot, which allows you to install hundreds of applications and games without any trouble.

This tablet has two cameras, a 3.1 megapixels back facing camera and a 1.2 mega-pixels front facing camera. This tablet can also shoot videos in 1280x720 (HD) at 30 fps. This tablet also features a couple of good features like flash, auto-focus and geo tagging.

The Samsung Galaxy Tab Active includes WiFi connection (and it can provide it to other devices acting as a mobile hotspot), 4G LTE high speed connection type and also HSPA+ internet connection, that is a bit slower 4G variation or 3G fast data connection, using HSDPA, HSUPA, UMTS and EDGE technologies. This tablet works with a Micro SIM card to connect to GSM networks.

The Samsung Galaxy Tab Active also features some interesting features like Bluetooth (for communication with other tablets and accessories), GPS (Global Positioning System) and NFC, and multiple sensors like Light Sensor, Accelerometer, Gyroscope and Compass.

The Tab Active counts with a 4450 mAh large Li-Polymer battery that can keep it running for several hours and even reach the end of the day without charging it.

Samsung is selling this device for 535 dollars, which is quite high for this kind of tablet. The Tab Active is probably a very good choice for you it doesn't matter whether you want a work tablet, need a device for gaming or want a device to mostly use social networks and internet browsing.
