The Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 7.0, unlike many other similarly sized models, comes from a trustworthy company, its performance is good, and the features are inline with the price. The same goes for the Galaxy Tab 4 8.0, which offers almost identical experience, with the differences boiling down to screen size and price.

    Who is buying these and why? Someone has to be or else they wouldn’t make them. Is it just people that don’t any better or do it because it has the Samsung name on it? Is Samsung like Apple in other parts of the world or something?

    My husband just bought this thing for me for Christmas. I am not impressed at all! At first glance it seemed o.k., but after playing around with it, I want him to take this garbage back. The camera and speakers are horrible, it’s not compatible to things that I like to do on my LG android, which by the way takes beautiful pictures, videos, and allows me to download an LED flashlight that lights up my 15’x18′ bedroom with no problem. I haven’t dug any deeper because the simple things are of good quality. This was not a good buy.

    Avoid this tablet at all costs. I got this tablet free with a Sky installation 7″ Galaxy Tab 4 (model SM-T230), and it is the worst performing Android device I have ever owned (since they 1st came out)!
    I installed a couple of simple games from Google Play’s Store and Amazon’s App Store on this and they all lag so badly they freeze whilst playing. I cannot state how much I would avoid this product and I am giving this to someone to use as a planner and for email as it’s no good for anything else. Luckily I have a Sony Xperia Z3 phone and iPad Mini 2 which are incredibly superior to this tablet.
