Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro 10.1 is a high quality tablet launched many years ago, equipped with an extremely fast 2300 megahertz Quad-Core CPU, a big size 10.1" multi touch display, and two cameras, an 8 mega-pixels back side camera and a 2 megapixels front camera. Great! That's it? No, it's only the beginning.

This tablet is only for sale in color white. Samsung did a very nice design job making the Tab Pro 10.1 weight only 16.54 ounces. The Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro 10.1 is only 9.57" long, but it manages to hold a 10.1" screen. Being just 0.29 inches thick,this tablet is very slim and stilized.

Samsung decided to sell this tablet with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 MSM8974 chip, packing a high performance 2300 MHz Quad-Core CPU and a large 2 GB RAM. To help with graphic intensive applications and games, it also uses a 450 MHz Adreno 330 graphic processing unit. A nice advantage of this device is its quite large 16 GB internal memory and a slot for SD memory cards, which allows you to store hundreds of games and apps without worrying about space.

Samsung equipped this device with a interesting 10.1 inches display, and a resolution of 1600 x 2560 , which makes everything look beautiful. This display uses Super Clear LCD capacitive technology, and allows multi-touch for gestures like pinch and zoom.

This tablet offers wifi connectivity (and it can be provided to other devices acting as a mobile hotspot), LTE (4G) fast connection type and also HSPA+ data connection, that is a bit slower 4G technology or the fastest 3G data connection, using HSDPA, HSUPA, UMTS and EDGE technologies. This tablet uses a SIM card to use GSM services.

The Tab Pro 10.1 features two cameras, an 8 megapixels back camera and a 2 MP front-facing camera. This tablet can also shoot videos up to 1920x1080 (Full HD). The camera also counts with a couple of nice features: flash, smile detection shooting, auto-focus, HDR mode and geo tagging.

The Tab Pro 10.1 packs an amazing 8220 mAh non-replaceable battery that can keep this device running for many hours without charging it at all. An issue to take into account is that this tablet's battery isn't replaceable so you can't change it when it starts to have trouble holding its charge, even though with its 8220 mAh you will probably discard this tablet before that becomes a real problem.

The Tab Pro 10.1 also features many interesting features like Bluetooth (4.0), GPS Navigation, Infrared Port and NFC (to trigger actions, transfer data or make payments by holding your tablet close to another NFC device or tag), and multiple sensors like Light Sensor, Accelerometer, Gyroscope and Compass.

Samsung sells this tablet for $ 539, which is quite the same as other similar devices. If you are looking for a tablet to play games, will use it for work, are looking for a tablet to majorly use social networks and internet browsing or want this tablet to take plenty of photographs, this tablet is probably a good choice for you.
