Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 SM-T231Performance Review

The user interface of Tab 4 is smart and designed especially for tablet use. The default apps – Contacts, My Files, S Planner, Memo, Browser, E-mail, Music, Video, Alarm, S Voice are looks good and also works well.

On the graphics side of things the Galaxy Tab 4 is under-performed, in each of our tests we saw the tablet unable to compete with tablet like Nexus 7. The UI becomes sluggish when more than 3 to 4 programs running in the background, the performance is very disappointing.

Battery life is also very good, a full charge of battery can give one day of daily usage.


The Tab 4 is a really rather good tablet indeed. No doubt about it, the Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 good in size and function, and it did just that.
