The Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro 8.4 is underpinned by a Quad-core Krait 400 processor at 2.3GHz, Snapdragon 800 chipset, has 2GB of RAM, an 8-megapixel camera, split-screen multitasking and mini pop-up applications, 1080p video recording @30fps, Side-mounted stereo speakers, 4,800mAh Li-Ion battery and much more.

The Android tablet market is officially saturated with lots of options out there for people to choose from when they go shopping. There isn’t much between them regarding features and performance or even looks when it comes to everything that Samsung produces. The one area that has always excelled is providing a niche market for people who are looking for the particular device that suits them. Samsung thought there was room for one more size variation of the Samsung Galaxy Tab series when they released the Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.4 tablet which ends up being within half an inch of other tablets they already have priced.

Moreover, just to confuse people a little more, Samsung have come out with a ‘Pro’ version of the same group of tablets which is a hardware upgrade over the originals. Hardware and tablets aren’t usually a huge deal for most people since they do not need to browse the web with many tabs open. About the only time, you need to rely on hardware is gaming and watching videos online. Note that watching videos online from a website like YouTube and watching movies that you have stored on the device are two entirely different things. Sometimes watching videos from sites like YouTube can make the hardware struggle and that’s when you hear fans kick int gear and feel the underside getting hot. The Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro 8.4 can handle gaming much better, and it will also browse the web flawlessly, allowing you to have more tabs open without having to worry about it freezing or struggling to cope with the punishment.
