Number of Samsung devices allows you to think that the tactic of the producer is to release as many devices in a short time. To a rich family has recently joined the tablet Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 7.0 – hardware, which combines some features of its predecessors. What exactly talking about? I invite you to read the test.
Abbreviation, or wideorecenzja Galaxy Tab 4 7.0
Construction / quality
Plastic housing and imitation leather
Taking for review Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.0 with 4 difficulty repelled from each other feeling of déjà vu. Like Apple, Samsung has devised a single concept and consistently reproduces it. We have tested for you models such as the Galaxy Tab PRO 10, and the Galaxy Note Pro 12.2 – both with the described today combines virtually the same design. The prevailing plastic, which imitates the texture applied to the skin. What distinguishes "four", the finish on the edges, which is no longer a silver border, and extension plecków. Plastic, smooth sides seem to be better off, more natural and less cheesy. The end result is very good. While it is difficult to disagree with the fact that aluminum is the material of premium shelf (common sense dictates that the metal is, however, metal), I have to admit that the plastic used is practical and this for two reasons. The device is very light, at the same time does not collect fingerprints, and when the tablet heats up, the heat is accumulated in one place and not wander all over the body, as is the case with the iPad. [Nggallery id = 812 template = techmaniak] Front tablet has been dominated by the screen – and here again you will notice the similarity to the models with whom I had contact. Over screen mounted camera for video calls, and the screen you will find three keys, one physical. Given that we are dealing with a 7-inch tablet, overcoming the on-screen navigation bar gives you a larger working space. Equipment completes the main camera located on his back, microUSB slot and mono speaker. Creaks construction. Allowed myself a wytłuścić, as we all know, what is the biggest problem Samsung products. Screen coating, although glass, bends slightly, causing soft spots in the display. I met with this shortcoming as in the case of low-cost models, but here the defect has a much smaller scale. Interference is negligible, which means that the glass is sufficiently rigid. Coverage of the display gathers for a large number of fingerprints.
Photographic Equipment tablet consists of a 3-megapixel camera that has no flash or auto focus, which surprises me a little. The application is not very extensive, but we get to choose from several shooting modes:
- Beautifying Facial – softens the image, making it look like (supposedly) better in the pictures;)
- Sound and vision – after shooting the tablet will join a few seconds recording sounds from our environment
- Sport – a special mode designed for capturing fast-moving objects
- Night Mode
We also have the ability to tune the exposure, self-timer and white balance correction. We can also define a function volume key to zoom in or out before or slow shutter. Since the camera does not have autofocus, photos often come out slightly blurry. 3-megapixel lens will not allow you to shoot in high definition, the amount of detail should not be the largest. After all optics in the Galaxy Tab 4 is better than the cheaper models, with whom I had to deal with. Tablet turns video in 720p at 30 frames / sec. Like the photos, so films are of average quality. Deficiency is the lack of image stabilization.
Good viewing angles, sharp image
The tablet mounted 7-inch screen, which works at a resolution of 1280 by 800 pixels. No, this translates into high density of pixels, but unlike many models offering matrices with the same resolution, in the case of the tested equipment difficult to distinguish individual pixels. The effect is that the fonts are in my mind sharp, and hence – good to read websites. Of course, better network resource browsing in landscape mode rather than portrait.Viewing angles are wide, Samsung also took care of the appropriate backlight screen that is readable even on sunny days. Can not be here every right to appeal to the Galaxy S5, which, thanks to a great shell polarization is unrivaled in this field, but tested tablet really doing well on the outside. This is confirmed by our measurements of the intensity of illumination – 448 cd / m 2 is the maximum value, while the 6 cd / m 2 brightness is minimal (a great result, which ensures comfortable handling equipment at night). The matrix supports up to 5 pressure points and uneven illumination is 11%.
Dual-band WiFi, no OTG
The tablet, which conclude with surprise and profession, installed only in mono speaker. I do not understand, because the tested model predecessor, the Galaxy Tab 3, after all, had stereo speakers. The device emits a loud tone average (77 dB), but it gives a good listening experience. As the music player has a powerful equalizer, we can enhance the bass, or take care of the distribution of the upper tones. Speaker responds well to manipulation of sound, all you lose is the volume. [Test slug = "wifi-tablet" axis = "minus" product_id = "19960"] Manufacturer equipped model in the dual band wireless module compatible with 802.11 a / b / g / n, which enables you to work on the bands 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz. We achieve higher bandwidth link, but the condition is to have a compatible router. As always, thoroughly checked the stability of the connection – even in the last scenario, when the equipment is located on a different floor than the router, the device did not cause us any problems. This is an important advantage, because a large part of the 7-inch tablet has in this place connected to the Internet. GPS module supported by the GLONASS takes a few seconds to determine the location, although accuracy varies from 33 to 88 feet.Manufacturer offers a version of the tablet with a built-in modem 4G (LTE), and tested the WiFi only model we will not allow the connection to mobile networks – even with the help of an external modem. Unfortunately lacked support for OTG, so do not even connect a mouse or flash memory. This represents for me a little wrinkle. I checked the cable and accessories on other tablets – are working. You can see the Korean manufacturer has thought of adding the appropriate option. Built-in memory is expandable to 8 GB of external memory cards (up to 64GB). You can move applications to external media.
Keep it up!
The manufacturer has built in a lot of tablet link, because with a capacity of 4000 mAh. We tested the performance of the backlight reduced to 120 cd / m 2. The equipment did very well, allowing 11 hours watching movies, much less endure over time surfing the Web using Wi-Fi. Charging the device takes about four hours. To Samsung for leadership in this segment (Lenovo S5000) ran very little. [Test slug = "battery" virtual = "video-wifi-off, internet-wifi, communicator-wifi, load-ac" product_id = "19960"] Galaxy Tab 4 is a tablet that checks in intensive work. Easily survive from morning to evening, even if pressing it harder and odpalimy a game. But you must take into account that our tests we carry out for about 1/4 the possibility of the backlight of the model. Lightening the matrix to the maximum value can dramatically reduce the performance of your tablet.
Performance / functionality
Gives way to a more expensive TAB-om
I must admit that this section of the test is extremely difficult for me to write, because it is not easy 100% to determine what exactly is hidden inside the tablet. The manufacturer does not specify the exact specifications, and analytical programs – CPU-Z and CPU identifier – give contradictory information. The first indicates the Marvell PXA1080 of 4-core Cortex-A7 clocked at 1.2 GHz. Second, in turn, speaks of the arrangement Actions ACT-ATM7029. With more detailed information about the processor architecture, we learn that it is Cortex-A7 (SoC ACT-ATM7029 has a processor with Cortex-A9 architecture). So I think that ultimately we can assume that we are dealing with Marvel PXA1088 system.Responsible for the graphics GPU Vivante GC1000, which in that hardware configuration has two cores. In addition, we have 1.5 GB of RAM. Minor changes from the previous generation. Performance in games after all not the worst, because Dead Trigger 2 starts to medium sized parts, although with a lot of cropping. So I would advise you stay on low settings. Asphalt 8: Airborne also suggests that the average granularity, the performance here is a little bit better. I must admit that offer greater efficiency doubled cheaper tablets, why do not I hide my disappointment. When it comes to the work culture browsers – I have no major complaints. Pages scrolling with some delay, but smoothly. Similarly, draws nearer and further away. Equipment coped with a lot of video files, and the only resolution of 1080p and 4K gone beyond its capabilities. [Wptab style = "4" title = "Browser and System"] 1.

Samsung tried to make with the new model you have received access to fresher Android. Maybe not the latest, but in version 4.4.2 with efficient update OTA (Over The Air or without hooking the tablet to the computer). As the manufacturer has already accustomed us, we get graphics overlay, very similar to the one we meet in the S5 Galaxy Galaxy Note 3 As the tablet operates on the less powerful processor than these flagship, we have to reckon with some snares in the operation of the system. Nothing they shed very eyes and do not interfere with work, but are present. Oh, Domain Samsung phones. ,)The functionality of the system is highly developed. We run two windows on one screen – sliding your finger from the right edge of the screen to the center we draw the shortcut bar focusing all applications that are compatible with this mode startup. 7-inch screen is not very comfortable to multitasking, but it is useful. I really corresponded to the ability to surf the Net while being able to preview your inbox or Facebook. Another interesting feature is to allow multiple users to define the tablet, so that each received their own desktop and application set. The internal memory will not allow a full exploration of this feature, but the tool itself is useful and good that you found. Switching between profiles is very intuitive – on the lock screen appears balloons bearing the name of each account. Unfortunately, logout and sometimes slow jamming the system. Smart Stay allow your tablet to monitor when we look at him and deactivate the screen when we turn him away. While in theory this sounds fine, I personally have never been able to take advantage of this option. Apparently, my eyes are not visible to the device. Similarly, it was indeed the Galaxy Note 3 Well. 🙂 Among the available applications should be distinguished S Voice to issue voice commands, excellent file manager and office suite Hancom Office. When we use the Dropbox app, get a bonus of 50 GB for a period of two years.
Summary / evaluation / review
Nice, polished, functional
I'll say it openly – after a series of tests cheap tablet, it was nice to test this model. Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.0 4 is a great device that will gain the sympathy of every user. As previously mentioned, the price of the equipment is not proportional to the offered performance, but it all evens out because of the extensive graphic overlay and pretty good battery life. Nor can anyone escape a very good screen – wietlony and responsive.The price also explains design and quality, because the tablet is solid and also very nice. And although the hard plastic regarded as a material of the highest quality that the DUT does not collect fingerprints (talking about his back, because the screen is the utter misfortune of this statement), while retaining the opportunity satisfactory stiffness of the whole structure. Tablet wants to look and not ashamed remove it in a public place. I like it. [Temperatura2 product_id = "19960"] [thank type = "store"] [/ thank you] [inne_propozycje product_id = "19960"]
