Samsung’s Galaxy Tab 4 has a lot of features that should suit small business owners but it won’t be a replacement for your laptop.
For small business owners on the go more often than not, this tablet is definitely suited for keeping in touch with clients. And it’s more than capable of accessing and editing business files stored in your cloud.
A multi-pane view permits you to work on two different apps on the same 10.1-inch screen simultaneously.
The battery on the Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 allows you to stay on the Internet for about 10 hours. Some other positives with this tablet are that it’s lightweight and its stock 16 GB of internal storage can be expanded with up to 64 GB of external memory (microSD card in expansion slot).
The Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 also has a 3 megapixel rear-mounted camera and 1.3 megapixel camera that can be used for video conferencing or shooting photos to upload to social media sites.
This tablet operates Android KitKat 4.4 on a 1.2 GHz Quad-Core processor. It has 1.5 GB of RAM. These specs, along with a 1280×800 resolution screen don’t exactly make this tablet a replacement for your laptop. But at a $349 retail mark, this tablet is an affordable alternative for a larger device.
Think of this as more of an accessory. And while the hardware on the Galaxy Tab 4 may lag behind newer high-end tablets, it has more than enough power to complete most office tasks, even two at a time.
It certainly can allow you access to your cloud files. This Samsung 10-inch tablet is touted as “enterprise-ready” and is Microsoft Office-compatible.
There is a somewhat limited market for apps compatible with the tablet, however. And the diminished technical capabilities will limit what apps run smoothly or can be stored on the device. Based on our review, of the 1.5 GB of system RAM, about one-third of that is consumed from the start by the Android operating system.
