Test: Samsung Galaxy Tab’s 8.4.

The smaller model of the Tab’s are at least as impressive as its larger cousin. But with Samsung will there always some drawbacks with all the benefits.

In practical terms, it is not much separates the two models of Tab’s access, in addition to the obvious size then of course. In the eight tummaren feels the strong not quite as palpable as in the larger model, but both thickness weight makes it definitely nice to use with one hand, for example, for reading. The smaller size makes the pad feels a little more solid, probably because there is less space for dead space inside.

When the models are so similar, you can read our little bigger test of tiotumsmodellen here for a more comprehensive picture.

Press the buttons on the back to attach the shell and cover with are still there and feels like a rather odd prank for accessories, but it does work after all.

The big difference with the Tab S 8.4 is, of course, the pixel density of the screen. It is the same Super Amoled screen with resolution of tiotummaren and somewhat ridiculous 2 560 x 1 600 pixels is maintained. This means that the pixel density is slightly higher in the eight tummaren and we are experiencing it in any case as perhaps the most agreeable screen to read both books and magazines on which we’ve seen on a plate. The smaller size makes the plate of course more suited to the type of activities than the video along with several people, but the resolution and the screen does in all cases to individual viewers have nothing to complain about.

On the inside, it feels most again from previous Samsung burners, for better or worse. Samsung’s dividers with Widgets is nicely made and definitely a good idea. But when we have to stick to Samsung’s own widgets, it becomes much less useful. Samsung’s huge variety of additions here and there for Android is always a double-edged sword. On the one hand, we get a really good support for playback of files over the network, on the other hand, sucking the system more RAM than other manufacturers ‘ counterparts. On the one hand, we must install apps on the memory card, on the other hand takes Samsung’s own addition up enormously more internal memory than those of its counterparts. I feel all the time like there are just as many negative aspects with Samsung’s Magazine UI that there are positive (and in most cases both fast and free can be resolved through third party apps in many cases). The ability to run two apps on the split screen, on the other hand, is very useful, especially on a Tablet (but again, it is a disadvantage to all apps not covered by it).

Tab S-series is in many aspects Samsung’s most complete and well-made tablets ever and they clearly belong to the absolute top tier for Android tablets. At the same time, the brand name Samsung with at times painfully much extras that both weigh down the system and user experience, which is something that should be taken into account.
