IP67 certified, Withstands drops from a height of 1.2 meters, Decent build, Outstanding battery life, LTE, Expandable storage, App2SD support, Removable battery

Screen a bit pale outdoors, Poor cameras, Product-specific accessories not yet available, Relatively heavy with bumper

Samsung has created a robust tablet with a great battery life and LTE. It could have gladly been a bit more for the business sector, though. We miss the touted Care Package and product-specific accessories for the Galaxy Tab Active here. The option of...

Samsung Galaxy Tab Active review

 

Is Samsung's WiFi-only tablet rugged enough?

Survives natural elements ; Great battery life ; Grippable case

Falls can be fatal ; No cellular radio ; Small hard drive ; Poor camera
