Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro 8.4 is an amazing tablet launched in 2014, which features a very powerful Quad-Core CPU running at 2.3 GHz, a good size 8.4-inches touch-screen, an 8 megapixels back facing camera and a 2 mega-pixels front facing camera. Let's take a better sight of what this tablet can do.

Samsung has made an amazing job making this tablet as lightweight as 11.82 ounces. The Tab Pro 8.4 is slim and good-looking, being just 0.28 inches thick. Although the Tab Pro 8.4 only has 8.62 inches long, it manages to pack a 8.4" display.

Samsung packed the Tab Pro 8.4 with a gorgeous 8.4-inches display, and a 2560 x 1600 resolution, which makes it impossible to even distinguish the pixels in the display. This display uses Super Clear LCD capacitive technology, and can detect multiple fingers at the same time.

Samsung decided to build this device with a high speed Quad-Core CPU speeding at 2.3 GHz, packed into the Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 MSM8974 chip with a great 2 GB of RAM memory. To handle graphic intensive tasks, it also counts with an Adreno 330 GPU working at 450 MHz. An interesting aspect of this device is its big 16 GB internal memory and an SD extension slot, enough to store a couple hundred applications and games without worrying about space.

This tablet has two cameras, an 8 megapixels back side camera and a 2 mega-pixels front-facing camera. The Tab Pro 8.4 also films 1920x1080 Full HD videos at 60 fps. In addition, this device's camera also includes many valuable characteristics: auto-focus, flash, smile detection shooting, face detection shooting, HDR mode and geo tagging.

The Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro 8.4 comes with a 4800 mAh large non-removable battery providing the Tab Pro 8.4 an impressive battery duration. An issue to take into consideration is that this device's battery is not replaceable so you won't be able to replace it when it starts to last shorter, even though with such a great capacity you will probably replace this tablet before it becomes a real problem.

The Tab Pro 8.4 provides Wi-Fi connection (which can be provided to other devices around, as a mobile hotspot), LTE 4G high speed connection type and also HSPA+ connectivity, that is a lower speed 4G network or fast 3G internet connection, supported by HSDPA, HSUPA, UMTS and EDGE technologies. The Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro 8.4 uses a SIM card to connect to GSM networks.

This tablet also comes with many interesting features like Bluetooth, GPS (Global Positioning System), Infrared Blaster and NFC, and multiple sensors like Light Sensor, Accelerometer, Gyroscope and Compass.

This device might be a little expensive considering it is priced $ 1600, and some similar devices cost a bit less than that. No matter if you want a work tablet, want this device to take plenty of pictures, are looking for a social device or will use it for gaming, you will probably love this tablet.
