Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro 8.4 is a great tablet released in January 2014, having a 8.4-inches multi touch screen, a high-tech 2.3 GHz Quad-Core processing unit, and two cameras, an 8 megapixels back camera and a 2 mega-pixels front camera.

Samsung decided to equip this tablet using an extremely powerful 2.3 gigahertz Quad-Core CPU, bundled in a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 MSM8974 chip with a big 2 GB RAM. Graphic calculations generally consume lots of CPU cycles, so it counts with an additional Adreno 330 graphic processing unit clocking at 450 megahertz to take some work out of the CPU. A good feature of the Tab Pro 8.4 is its quite large 16 GB internal memory and an external memory card slot, allowing you to store hundreds of applications and games without running out of space.

Samsung has made a really good design job making this tablet weight just 11.82 oz. This device is a compact device, considering it packs a 8.4 inches screen and it's just 8.62" long and 5.06" wide. This device has a beautiful design, with a thickness of just 0.28 inches.

Samsung designed the Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro 8.4 with a completely amazing 8.4 inches screen, and a 2560 x 1600 resolution, providing this tablet with a delightful image quality. Its screen uses Super Clear LCD capacitive technology, and can detect multiple fingers at the same time.

This tablet has two cameras, an 8 MP back side camera and a 2 megapixels front-facing camera. It is capable of filming videos in Full HD 1920x1080 at 60 fps. Additionally, the camera features lots of useful characteristics like flash, face detection shooting, auto-focus, smile detection shooting, geo tagging and HDR mode.

This device features wifi connectivity (and it can provide it to other devices acting as a router or modem), 4G LTE fast internet connection and also HSPA+ connectivity, which is a slower 4G network or 3G fast internet connection, using HSDPA, HSUPA, UMTS and EDGE technologies. The Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro 8.4 uses a SIM card for GSM services.

The Tab Pro 8.4 counts with an amazing 4800 mAh non-replaceable battery, enough to provide this device with an amazing battery life. An issue to take into account is that this tablet's battery is not removable so you can't change it when it begins to have trouble holding its charge, though with so much capacity you will probably buy a new device before that becomes an issue.

The Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro 8.4 also features many interesting features like Bluetooth (enables communication with other devices, computers, and accessories), GPS Localization, 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.

The Tab Pro 8.4 is a complete tablet that is sold for $ 779, which is similar to other similar tablets. This tablet is the right choice for you no matter whether you you love taking photographs, want a tablet for work, will use this tablet mostly for social networks and internet browsing or want it to play games.
