Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 Nook review: good for reading, but hardly the best budget tablet

 

There was a time when Barnes & Noble was so big, so dominating, that even Tom Hanks managed to look like a jerk when he played a book-chain executive

Good-looking design ; Bright screen ; The Nook app here is an improvement over the regular Nook for Android ; Price includes some free books, magazines and TV shows

Short battery life compared to competing devices ; Sluggish performance ; Skimpy built-in storage

With an improved reading app, the Galaxy Tab 4 Nook could be a compelling choice for loyal Barnes & Noble customers. But if all you want is a budget Android tablet, you can do better, even at this price.

Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 white, 7-inch

 

And it's available for just $180 (after a $20 instant rebate) in the US and £159 in the UK. That's a fair price for what you're getting, and you won't really go wrong with the Galaxy Tab 4. But if you're willing to shop around, there are plenty of...

The Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 delivers satisfying performance for web browsing and casual gaming, and has a pretty good screen, for just $180.

That budget price is now matched by superior devices like the Nexus 7. You'll want to invest in a microSD card.

The $180 Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 is a fine choice for a budget tablet, but it's ultimately bested by great older devices, and new slates that are cheaper still.

Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 7.0 review

 

The Samsung Galaxy Tab 4's meager specs and humble design make it easy to pass over in a sea of budget Android devices. But don't be too hasty, as it is worth your consideration. It has a pretty good HD display, coupled with capable performance for...

Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 Nook black

 

The first fruit of the collaboration is the Galaxy Tab 4 Nook. The hardware isn't new at all: in fact, this is exactly the same tablet as the existing Galaxy Tab 4 7.0 , available at the same price ($179 with a $20 rebate). But the Nook version uses...

The Galaxy Tab 4 Nook offers a thin and light 7-inch Android tablet with access to the full Google Play store and a bunch of Nook-centric freebies for just $179. The microSD card slot supports cards of up to 32GB, and it doubles as a TV remote thanks...

Except for Barnes & Noble's skinned interface, this is identical to Samsung's existing 7-inch Tab 4, right down to the average screen and camera resolution. If you're doing anything more than reading, you'll need to invest in that extra memory card....

While it doesn't offer much to distinguish itself from other Android tablets, the Galaxy Tab 4 Nook is a decent 7-inch tablet at an affordable price.

Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 Nook (black) review

 

Back in the early days of tablets -- about three or four years ago -- Barnes & Noble was a major player in the market. But that was then, and this is now: with the exception of its GlowLight e-ink reader , the bookseller is now out of the tablet...

Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 Nook

 

The Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 Nook is an average Android tablet that isn't a very good value, even with Barnes & Noble's bundled content.

Smooth performance. Runs Android 4.4. Compact and lightweight.

Relatively expensive. Multiple redundant app stores. Low-pixel-density display.

Content and Conclusions Barnes & Noble makes a big deal about the bundled promotional content, which it estimates at about $200 worth. That includes free books, magazines, and TV shows. Our test unit came with copies of Freakonomics , The Fault in Our...

Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 7.0

 

The Galaxy Tab 4 7.0 will appeal to longtime Samsung fans, but it doesn't do enough to justify the premium over similarly equipped competitors.

Smooth performance. Runs Android 4.4. Compact and lightweight.

Anemic speaker and cameras. Mediocre battery life.

Competition and Conclusions There's a ton of competition in the 7-inch realm, but even two years after its release (and one year after the latest incarnation), the Google Nexus 7 continues to trump new options that simply can't match its blend of...

Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 8.0 review

 

The Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 8.0 is a glorified budget tablet. It features a lightweight design and a ton of software features, but it suffers from inflated pricing. Further, its silky smooth performance, even when multitasking, can't distract from its...

The Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 8.0's multiwindow feature provides smooth navigation, and its performance is consistently fast. It houses a microSD card expansion slot and can be used as a universal remote.

Given its simple specs, the $279 starting price is overreaching. The plastic build feels cheap and the screen resolution is notably subpar.

The Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 is a smooth-performing midrange slate, but it's overpriced compared to similar tablets.

Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 8-inch, black

 

Starting at $279, the 8-inch Tab 4 is priced competitively when compared to premium midsize tablets like Samsung's own Galaxy Tab Pro 8.4 or the Amazon Kindle Fire HDX 8.9 , but they rock larger super-HD screens, zippy processors, and deluxe designs...

Epson Stylus CX5400, Stylus CX6400

 

Epson is relatively new to the MFP market, and it brings its own vision of what an MFP should be.

That said, both of these Epson models are good, not perfect, MFPs at competitive prices.
