Samsung 12.2

Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro 12.2 is an impressive Android tablet released in January 2014, provisioned with a really big 12.2" screen, an exceptional Quad-Core processor speeding at 2.3 GHz, and two cameras, an 8 megapixels back facing camera and a 2 megapixels front facing camera. We will get a better idea about this tablet's advantages when we get into deeper details.

The Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro 12.2 is much lighter than what you expect from a tablet like this. This tablet is just 11.64" long, but it is still able to fit a a 12.2 inches display. The Tab Pro 12.2 has an inspired design, with a thickness of just 0.31".

Samsung decided to build the Tab Pro 12.2 using a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 MSM8974 system chip, packing a very fast Quad-Core processor ticking at 2.3 GHz with a big 3 GB of RAM memory. Graphic rendering generally eats a lot of processing power, so it has an Adreno 330 GPU ticking at 450 MHz to help with that calculations. A good point of the Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro 12.2 is its big 64 GB internal storage memory and an external SD slot, allowing you to install hundreds of apps and even the heaviest games available nowadays without having to worry about running out of space.

Samsung designed the Tab Pro 12.2 with a very good 12.2" display, and a 1600 x 2560 resolution, which makes everything look very nice. This display uses Super Clear LCD capacitive technology, and can detect multiple fingers at the same time.

The Tab Pro 12.2 features two cameras, an 8 mega-pixels back camera and a 2 megapixels front side camera. It is capable of filming 1920x1080 Full HD videos at 60 fps. In addition, the camera features a couple of nice features: flash, geo tagging and auto-focus.

The Tab Pro 12.2 comes with a high capacity 9500 mAh non-removable battery that can keep it running for many hours without charging it. An issue to consider is that this tablet's battery isn't replaceable so you won't be able to replace it when it starts to lose capacity, even though with this big battery you will probably replace this tablet before it becomes an issue.

The Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro 12.2 includes wifi connection (which it can share with other devices acting as a mobile hotspot), LTE (4G) high speed connection type and also HSPA+ internet connection, which is a lower speed 4G network or 3G fast internet connection, using HSDPA, UMTS and EDGE technologies. This device uses a SIM card to use GSM services.

The Tab Pro 12.2 also includes many interesting features like Bluetooth (4.0), GPS Navigation, Infrared Transmitter 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.

This tablet is a really good offer considering it's an awesome tablet and it only costs 249 dollars. This tablet is definitely the correct option for you if you are looking for a tablet majorly for internet broswing and social networks, are a photography fan, need a device for gaming or want a work device.
