Samsung 12.2

Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro 12.2 is a high-level Android tablet released in January 2014, coming with a 12.2 inches touch-screen, a high performance 2300 megahertz Quad-Core processor, an 8 MP back-facing camera and a 2 megapixels front camera.

This tablet is much lighter than what you would expect from a device this size. Whereas this tablet is just 11.64" long, it's still able to fit a a 12.2" screen. This tablet is just 0.31" thick, making it one of the thinnest devices nowadays.

Samsung equipped this tablet with a good looking 12.2" display, and a 1600 x 2560 resolution, giving this device a very nice image quality. Its display uses Super Clear LCD capacitive technology, and has multi-touch detection.

This tablet ships with a high speed 2300 megahertz Quad-Core processor, included in the Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 MSM8974 system chip with a huge 3 GB of RAM memory. Graphic rendering usually consume lots of processor time, so it counts with an extra Adreno 330 graphics processing unit ticking at 450 MHz to help with that calculations. This tablet counts with a impressive 32 GB internal memory and an SD memory card expansion slot, which allows you to install lots of applications, games, songs, pictures and videos without worrying about filling it.

This tablet features WiFi capability (and it can be provided to other devices as a mobile hotspot), LTE (4G) fast connection type and also HSPA+ connectivity, a bit slower 4G variation or 3G fast connection type, over HSDPA, UMTS and EDGE technologies. The Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro 12.2 works with a SIM card for GSM networks.

This device features two cameras, an 8 mega-pixels back side camera and a 2 mega-pixels front camera. It can also film videos up to 1920x1080 (Full HD) at 60 frames per second. To complete the camera, it also features a couple of useful features like flash, auto-focus and geo tagging.

This tablet comes with a 9500 mAh high capacity non-removable battery that provides this tablet an incredibly long battery life. An issue to evaluate is that this device's battery isn't removable so you can't change it when it starts to get older, while with so much capacity you will probably replace this tablet before that becomes a real problem.

This tablet also includes many interesting features like Bluetooth (provides communication with other devices and accessories), GPS Navigation, Infrared Blaster and Near Field Communication (NFC), and multiple sensors like Light Sensor, Accelerometer, Gyroscope and Compass.

This tablet is really cheap considering it's an incredible device and it only costs $ 350. No matter if you need a tablet to play games, are looking for a device for work, you love taking photographs or want a tablet mostly for internet broswing and social networks, this tablet is the right one .
