    Amazing quality and performance at a very good price point! I own a lot of different tablets but this is my first Samsung and let me say that I am impressed. I went to the store to buy a 7 inch unit but quickly decided to upgrade to the 8 inch version. There were several features that I was concerned about and the 8 inch unit just fit my needs better.* Larger screen size for reading* More basic internal memory at 16 GIG versus 8 GIG for the 7 inch unit* The ability to upgrade to a 64 GIG SD card instead of just 32 GIGJust remember that in my experience your need for more memory grows as you use your tablet more and if you buy a smaller memory upgrade capability you may regret it. The price difference on launch day was only $40 more. I already own 8 tablets in my family so my experience has proven this need for more memory. As you add more books and more apps the memory slowly gets eaten up. I went ahead and also purchased a Samsung 64 GIG Micro SD memory card and I got a Class 10 Pro series at a cost of $55. It reads at 70 MB/s and a write speed of 20 MB/s. For under $300 you will have a powerful tablet that has more memory (80 GIG) than a 64 GIG iPad Mini for a much lower price.Here is the link to the Samsung Memory that I purchased:Some other key features are:* A powerful Qualcomm quad core CPU operating at 1.2 GHZ ( You can see the speed in using the tablet)* 1280 by 800 pixel display* A 3 MP rear facing camera* A 1.3 MP front facing camera* It weighs in at 11 ¼ ounces per my scales* Bluetooth 4.0* Internal 16 GIG of flash memory and it goes to 80 GIG using a 64 GIG Micro SD card (Use a high quality Class 10 Micro SD card)* 1.5 GIG of internal RAM* A 4450 mAh internal battery pack* Android 4.4 operating system Kit Kat* 1080P playback and recording* A built in IR blaster to control your TV and other infra-red devices and an App called WatchON the help you control your TV and see what is playing on your cable service.* The tablet comes with a 31 inch charging and data cable that is a Micro USB on one end and a USB on the other.* It comes with an AC wall charger that outputs 5 VDC at 1 Amp and it will operate on 100 to 240 VAC and 50/60 HZ.* It features a power multitasking function that lets you see and use two apps simultaneously which is something that an Apple iPad cannot do. Very nice feature!* You can set up multiple users and limit the apps that they can see and use.* You can set up a child friendly and protected user interface.* You get $300 worth of free contentI found this tablet to be extremely versatile and very fast. The quad core processor is very impressive and browsing the internet was fast and easy. Adding my Gmail account to the tablet literally took a minute. I put together a video to show you the locations for the controls and what the tablet looks like. It is a bit long and I couldn’t even talk about all of the items that I wanted to include. I apologize for the length of the video but I get excited over good technology. Overall the tablet is impressive and it is well worth the money based on the quality and performance that I have seen. I rate it as a 5 star item.You can register your device with Samsung Galaxy Perks and get more free items:* A $10 credit on the Google Play Store* 3 months free of Hulu plus* 1 year free of Boingo WIFI* 50 GIG of free Drop Box cloud storage for 2 years* Sirius 3 months free* 3 free audible books for new members* 3 digital magazines free on Zinio for 2 months* A free Polaris OfficeUpdate May 2, 2014:Last night I installed the Amazon AppStore and the Amazon Kindle reading app. I down loaded over 950 books and I was blown away by the speed of the downloads. The CPU and strong WIFI connection really shines with its speed. I was using a strong 2.4 GHz WIFI and I downloaded the speedtest app from Google Play and I could download data at 13.36 Mbps and upload data at 2.09 Mbps. Since I am on ATT Uverse that is a reasonable result. The tablet can use either a 2.4 GHz or a 5 GHz WIFI channel. On the 5GHz frequency I got 17.71 Mbps download and 2.24 Mbps upload.I used the Amazon AppStore as I own over 1000 apps and it was fast and easy to download many of them. I could transfer them to the SD card to conserve my internal memory. I had to do this manually on some of the apps and others went to the SD card automatically.The sound of the speaker is pretty loud for its size. I paired the tablet with a Bluetooth speaker and the process is fast and…

    Faster processor than Galaxy Tab 3 8.0, speakers and cameras downgraded, in stock configuration has exceptional battery life. I already have a Galaxy Tab 3 8.0 but curiosity was killing me; I had to see what the differences were between the two model years. I think the Galaxy Tab 4 8.0 is a great tablet! I am a Galaxy Tab fan from the beginning. I still have and use a Sprint Galaxy Tab sph-p100 which is now several years old, but has been tweaked in nearly every way. I have watched the Galaxy Tab line evolve from the beginning. The GT4 8.0 is an evolutionary change from the 3.The introductory price was lowered by $30 on the first day of its release and it is currently $60 less than the introductory price of the GT 3 8.0. To keep the price down other than the processor and the newer operating system there are no other notable improvements and some compromises were made. The speakers and cameras were downgraded and the data/power cable was shortened. In most ways this was less of a performance upgrade than a response to current market conditions. Because of the competition in 8″ tablets… at the current price point consumers expect a more modern quad-core processor. That is what we got.My first impressions…To me the GT4 8.0 seemed slightly zippier than the GT3 8.0. However when I ran the applications that I actually use on a tablet most of the time (web browsers, book readers, video and music players) with the two tablets side by side there were no appreciable differences. So I have to admit that my first impression may have been psychological… knowing that the newer unit has a quad core processor vs a dual core in the GT3 8.0 gives the expectation that the GT4 8.0 would be faster. I ran approximately 20 benchmark programs on the two tablets side by side. The GT 4 8.0 was faster by most but not all measures.The Gtab4 8.0 has the same processor as the Motorola Moto G. In nearly every benchmark I ran the scores were almost the same as the Moto G. Since the Moto G has been out longer… if you want to know how the GT4 8.0 is going to perform using a certain benchmark just look at how the Moto G performed; you will most likely be within a very few percentage points.Most notably on the initial runs using the Antutu Benchmark program… the GT4 8.0 earned a score of 17281 and the GT3 8.0 received a score of 15263. On the Antutu 3DRating Benchmark the 4 got a score of 2765 and the 3 just 1870. Neither is a speed demon compared to many other Android Devices. Neither tablet is meant to be a maximum performance gaming device. Overall however both tablets have a lot of features for entry level tablets as noted in other reviews and both are very good, well rounded devices.Compared to the GT3 8.0, the GT4 8.0 shines running applications which take full advantage of its 4 processors and on chip Graphics Processor Unit. There are benchmarks where the GT3 8.0 outperforms the 4 due to its faster clock speed and the design of its processors and gpu. Overall, however one must reasonably conclude that the new processor in the 4… future proofs it more as compared to the GT3 8.0. It will be interesting to find out what type of overclocking potential the processors and GPU have. Whether either unit has any practical real world advantages for the a particular user depends entirely on the applications being used. A budding tablet gamer would be better off with the 4.My guess is that most users who do not run 3D games, photo or video editing apps would not be able to tell much if any difference using typical applications. Unless there are applications that you want to use that you know are CPU intensive and are going to run better on the quad core tablet it would not be a worthwhile upgrade for most. If however you are making a decision about which tablet to purchase… I would be willing to spend a little more on the GT4 8.0 than the GT3 8.0.Some advantages of the 3 are:1. It has been out for a while and has a lot of community support. It is easy to root; there are many custom ROMS and setups that one can take advantage of without having to reinvent the wheel.2 .The 3 has loads of cheap accessories available through eBay, Amazon and numerous retailers.3. The 3 has better speakers and cameras.Some advantages of the 4 are:1. It has a newer quad-core processor that out performs the 3 in many benchmarks.2. The Kitkat Operating System… as annoying as it is to have to learn new features… it is an upgrade. There probably already are custom ROMs to upgrade the GT3 8.0, but there are advantages to having a factory supported OEM version with the latest OS.3. The back of the 4’s case has a faux leather finish that is not a fingerprint magnet like the shiny 3’s is. Personally I never take the 3 out of its gel case because you can’t pick it up without getting nasty looking fingerprints all over it’s beautiful shiny white exterior.4. {{{edit 5-18-14}}} After using the 4 for over two weeks…
