Samsung is getting ready to release its enormous entertainment tablet, the Galaxy View. Its massive display and special home screen filled with streaming app shortcuts make it more of a smart TV than a tablet. It has all of the functions you would expect from one of its smaller Galaxy siblings except that it’s a wi-fi only device and there is no S pen functionality. The Galaxy View’s specs include an 18.4” full 1080p display, a 2.1 megapixel camera, 2GB of RAM, 32GB of built-in storage with a microSD card slot, and a 5700 mAh battery to power it all. From a full charge, the View’s battery is supposed to last for eight hours of constant viewing. The View also packs a 1.6GHz octa-core CPU. It comes with Android 5.1 Lollipop and can run all the apps that a normal tablet can.

There’s no sense in lugging around a tablet this big. As it’s the largest Android device ever made, it’s meant to be kept in the home and only brought from room to room. The idea is that it would be like a portable TV. You could set it up in the kitchen while you’re cooking, or bring it to bed to watch an episode of your favorite series before sleeping.

At around $500, the Samsung Galaxy View isn’t cheap. It doesn’t have the state of the art specs to even back up a price tag like that. It doesn’t have the state of the art specs to even back up a price tag like that. But what it does have is immense size, and that’s what you’re paying for. At just 120ppi, it’s not exactly QHD, but from what we’ve seen so far, the screen is still pretty crisp.

Check Current Price on Amazon

The stand on the back of the Galaxy View, which also acts as a handle, is non-removable. That means it can never lay flat, but will instead be angled when you lay it down. Samsung is experimenting with this odd product. Could this be the first of a new wave of super-sized tablets to hit the market? After the Galaxy View’s Nov. 6th release date, we’ll see if consumers and competitors follow Samsung’s lead.

A tablet for gaming – nVidia shield http://reviewtech.info/a-tablet-for-gaming-nvidia-shield/ http://reviewtech.info/a-tablet-for-gaming-nvidia-shield/#respond Sat, 09 May 2015 14:04:25 +0000 http://reviewtech.info/?p=764 A short review about the tablet created for gaming - the nVidia shield.

The post A tablet for gaming – nVidia shield appeared first on Review Tech.

Though released and announce long time ago, I decided to make a short review of this extraordinary device, made from nVidia especially for gaming. But what makes it so special? Super GPU? Continue reading and you will find out.

Now we all know that when it comes to graphic performance and video cards, nVidia is a winner. So they decided to make a gaming tablet, which gives the best gaming experience for the tablet users, but did they succeed in this? In fact they did, but the real question I would rather ask is “are tablets capable of giving good gaming experience?”. This is the question we should think more about, because in the last quarters, the tablet as a device has lost big percentages in the market. Hybrid devices, ultrabooks and super phablets seem to be overtaking, but that’s none of my business. Let’s take a closer look at the nVidia shield:

Design

nVidia TabletAs you can see in the picture on the left (click on it), you will see that nVidia really tried to give their best in this device. A stylus, thermal shields and some serious glass protection. Overall I would say that the device has really good design, though it is a bit small to me with it’s 8” display.

Display

As just mentioned, the display is an 8” one, having the resolution of 1920x1200px (a bit better than full hd). No idea if the display is IPS or not, but I think this is not a big issue.

Performance

When talking to performance, this tablet has a lot to say. The nVidia shield has NVIDIA® Tegra® K1 192 core Kepler GPU which is shortly more than enough to run everything on your tablet when it comes to graphics.

The CPU is 2.2 GHz ARM Cortex A15, which in combination of 2GB RAM will give you really smooth performance and experience.

Extras

The standard extras like microSD card, 4G capability and latest version of Bluetooth are here. There are though two extras I would really like to mention here – the camera and the stylus. I take the camera as an extra, because if you are playing games, it is the last thing you will need (except if streaming). The cameras on this tablet (both back and front) are 5mpx, put by nVidia especially for streaming games (as well the microphone support from the jack).

Conclusion

I am really waiting for a new version of this device, as it is a little bit old for me, because I think that there is really something new that nVidia could bring into the mobile gaming market. Still I must admit that this is one of the best gaming portable touchscreen devices available at the moment. With its ability to play 4K videos, this is also one of the most powerful tablets for its price at the moment.

Tablets are useful in many cases – while doing business, watching movies on a lightweight device, playing games and so on. I personally have had 2 tablets, but have used much more and am sure tablets are yet irreplaceable, because of their size and mobility. I decided to give my top choices for tablets, when choosing them on a low budget. Don’t get confused, there are also cheap and fast tablets, of course they are not perfect, but you will find something that suits your budget and needs for sure.

The main factor here to consider is the OS of the tablet, meaning that it would be somehow impossible to buy a “cheap iPad”. Apple devices are not cheap, may be you can find a good one 2nd hand, but never 1st. That’s why the tablets I will suggest will be only Android ones. Let’s start:

The old Nexus 7 (2012)

Nexus 7 (2012)

The old and famous Google Nexus 7, a tablet which you can find for a really low price now. Google stopped maintaining it, as well manufacturing it, so shops who haven’t sold it out will lower the prices.

The tablet itself is not that bad, maybe the screen will be too small for you (I personally prefer 10 inches displays), but for the performance and its price, I would say this tablet is totally fine.

Acer Iconia Series

Acer Iconia Models

Acer has been known as a fairly cheap pc manufacturer (as well notebooks), so the same is valid for their tablets. The series of Acer Iconia models are quite good tablets offering good performance for a really low price. Unfortunately, here the screen is not much bigger, mainly it is 7-8”, but on a low budget, you cannot have big screen and good performance (for example 1440p display and octa-core cpu).

Lg G Pad 8

Lg G Pad 8

Surprisingly LG tries to join the tablet market, whether this action is successful or not I cannot tell for now, but what I can tell you is that the G Pad 8.0 from LG is carrying a fast quad-core CPU and is waiting for an Android 5.0 update soon. For the price this tablet comes, I think the reasons to buy this tablet are already there. Oh and the display is IPS as well.

Asus Transformer Pad

Asus Transformer Pad

Maybe this is the tablet you are looking for – dual-core Intel Atom CPU, 10” IPS Display and attached keyboard support. Just a little bit more expensive than the others mentioned above, but obviously worth it. This tablet is also famous for it’s battery life for over 9 hours, but also having the keyboard dock makes the experience better.

Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 7.0

Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 7.0

With a quad-core CPU and 1,5GB RAM, there is also a product for all Samsung fans – the Galaxy Tab 4 7.0 that comes in a price around 150-200 euros. Nothing except the low price makes this tablet more special when compared with the one mentioned above, but it is still Samsung and has TouchWiz, which for some people may be advantage (or disadvantage).

I decided to make a small collection of some really innovative and beautiful hybrid devices, which maybe most of us have never seen, but still they could be really useful to a lot of people.

The Acer Aspire R7

Acer Aspire R7Though maybe a bit strange, the Acer Aspire R7 introduces a new way of using the hybrid tablets and ultrabooks. With some really good technical specifications and a beautiful design, this hybrid is maybe worth more than it seems to be. Why? With extras like an HDMI port, card read, super fast Intel Core i5/i7 CPU and SSD, this device is obviously worth it!

Lenovo Yoga 3 Pro

Lenovo Yoga 3 ProDo you think I would miss a hybrid ultrabook, that is even thinner than the new MacBook? Of course, no! This device is obviously worth it and in this review about the Yoga 3 Pro, Tony is explaining us why this device is really awesome. I personally think that this device is one of the best for its kind and comparable to devices like the Surface Pro tablets, but still is in a much different category.

Toshiba U920T

Toshiba U920TThough maybe not one of the most successful players in this market, I must admit that Toshiba has brought some innovation here. I really like it when people bring new stuff on the market and do not repeat their technology, because wanting more money for the same thing but with more marketing, does not make any sense, I just hate it. Toshiba has deserved it’s place here and I would like to say that the technical specifications of this hybrid ultrabook are not bad at all.

 

Dell XPS Duo

Dell XPS DuoA regular laptop with the size and possibilities of a tablet, this is the Dell XPS Duo. The design is handsome and in some cases really useful, the size of a 12″ puts it in the category of big tablets, rather than the small ultrabooks, but still the technical specifications of this device can make it compete with some other ultrabooks as well. The only disadvantage here is the weight, well that’s understandable, making new stuff, we cannot have everything we want.

Samsung has release a lot of tablets and now opens a new Galaxy Tab S-line. This is the thinnest and lightest tablet that Samsung has ever produced. Let’s take a closer look.

Design

The Galaxy Tab S features a 10.5 inch display. On the back we see a plastic rubberized back, which is identical to the Samsung Galaxy S5. Another feature which you can only see in this tablet is the gold trim, no matter of the color you get gold will be the trim around the bezel and the fingerprint home button. The build quality is the same that Samsung uses in all other devices – plastic ! This tablet creeks in the hand and feels much less substantial in the hand compared to tablets like the Nexus 10 and the Apple iPad Air.

Samsung Galaxy Tab S Review

Specifications

According to specs, they do have a lot to say. You’ll find a 1.9 GHz octa-core configuration, on the wi-fi models only you’ll find 1.3 GHz quad-core chip, packed with 3 GB of RAM, the Adreno 330 GPU. It has a decent 8 MP and a 2.1 MP front-facing camera.

Galaxy Tab S

Software

It runs Android KitKat which is fantastic but it runs TouchWiz which at points concerns over 1 GB of RAM. I think that is unnecessary.

Galaxy Tab S Software

Display

Samsung Galaxy Tab S features 10.5 inch display as I said. The display is Super AMOLED with a resolution of 2560 x 1600 pixels. This technology allows engineers to makes this tablet 6.6 mm thin and also allows them to pack this beautiful display, with 288 ppi. One huge benefit having this type of displays are the colors – blacks are truly black, whites are really white and bright, and all the reds and greens and blues look fine.

Galaxy Tab S Front

Battery life

To be honest the Galaxy Tab S has a decent battery life just like the iPad Air. It has about 6 to 8 hours on screen time of about 80 % brightness.

Galaxy Tab S Battery Life

Conclusion

So although it’s good but has some serious software limitations and I wish this thing runs stock Android because it will be lighting fast with this specs. So for me if you want an Android tablet, buy the Nexus 10.

BUY Samsung Galaxy Tab S

Sony Xperia Z4 Tablet Review http://reviewtech.info/sony-xperia-z4-tablet-review/ http://reviewtech.info/sony-xperia-z4-tablet-review/#respond Fri, 13 Mar 2015 17:43:17 +0000 http://reviewtech.info/?p=183 Review of the new Sony Xperia Z4 tablet. Is it good and worth it? Read more in article to find out.

On the mobile world congress Sony has introduced the new Xperia Z4 tablet – a device having really good specifications, with hopefully not that high price. The Xperia tablets have been known for their great thin design and IP68 certifications, allowing them to be hold under water for a limited amount of time. Well Sony didn’t disappoint us this time, the future has been kept and the tablet now has even better technical specifications. The design of the Sony Xperia Z4 tablet is not changed much, but I am pretty sure a lot of people find it beautiful and thin enough.

As a previous owner of the Sony Xperia Z tablet, I could say that for its time, this was the most beautiful tablet and I had fun time playing with it under water. Let’s have a look at the technical specifications of the tablet.

The display

The display is 10.1” having resolution of 2560×1600 pixels, which I think is great for this size. With 299 ppi pixel density, the IPS LCD screen gives really good picture.

The cpu

The tablet is powered by two quad-core cpus, one with 1.5Ghz frequency and the other one with 2.0Ghz. Both cpus give a great performance of the tablet and I think that the Xperia Z4 tablet is one of the first tablets with two quad-core cpus.

Together with the 3GB of ram I think the performance of this tablet would be outstanding comparing to the other android ones.

The gpu is Adreno 430, which is one of the best current gpus from Adreno.

The camera

The camera is a standard one, no surprise here unfortunately, only 8MPX main, but 5MPX front one. This is maybe the only disadvantage of the tablet – poor camera.

Extras

The tablet supports microSD up to 32GB and should come with the Android 5.0 Lollipop. The battery is not removable unfortunately, but it is 6000mAh so it should be enough for daily use. Also the tablet has microUSB v2.0 and the LTE version supports only nano-sim cards.

Here are some photos of the Sony Xperia Z4 tablet:
