Samsung Galaxy Tab Active : One Tough tablet to beat


First Look


If you’re looking for the toughest tablet, the new Samsung Galaxy Tab might be one of your best picks. With an 8-inch magnanimous screen this device was built to withstand harsh conditions. Its interior and design looks sturdy with its metallic back panel. It comes with a cover that can withstand screen-shattering drop up to 1.2 meters. Another thing worth-mentioning is its capacity to be submerged underwater for up to 1m for 30 minutes. The grip works even on wet surface. Thus, it’s perfectly safe to use while drinking your coffee, tea, or any of your favourite drink.

With its solid specifications and a dustproof external cover, the tab is a sure hit towards business users as well as professionals who spent most of their time outside like engineers, technicians, salespeople among others. etc.

The Knox security software makes it even better protecting your valuable files against malware and other fraudulent activities around the web complete with a cloud storage device.

Display, Resolution, Camera and C-pen


The camera offers 3.15 MP, with 2048 x 1536 pixels which is like a miniscule version of other Samsung tablets. The screen resolution is relatively low with 800 x 1280 pixels compared to iPad Air’s 1536 x 2048 screen display. Whilst advantageous at times, it can also be a drawback since HD display also draws more power from your battery. The image is fairly crisp and vivid, and a little bit over saturated but has reasonable viewing angles.

The C-pen works like a charm. It is made with plastic and a rubber end to it. It works perfectly on its multi-screen application and for browsing different apps on your device.

It also includes a microusb, 3.5 mm audio jack Bluetooth, Wi-fi, NFC, GPS, 3G and 4G.


Charging Capabilities & Pricing

The Samsung Galaxy Tab Active has a 12-hour battery life with its 4400 MaH which is perfect for people working on their files on a daily basis.

A POGO pin is a device used in electronics to provide a connection between two printed circuit boards. It was made popular recently because of its ability to charge effectively. Another cool thing about POGO pins is their ability to charge magnetically. This significantly helps in reducing the risks of damaging your tablet if cable gets dragged or yanked. Additionally, this tablet has two-way charging mechanism that lets users choose between USB and POGO charging which is very useful for people who are always on the go.

Like the other devices that have carried the Active moniker from Samsung, the Tab Active has replaced the capacitive-physical front button layout with a trio of buttons (multitasking, home, and back). The whole tablet is ringed by a thick band of rubber with outsets at the corners to provide extra protection against the bumps and jostles of living a rugged life.

 According to one of the reviews from TechRadarThe Tab Active is built with different requirements in mind - so some of the more impressive Galaxy Tab S features didn't find their way onto the Tab Active, while some of the less impressive Tab S specs have been upgraded to suit the business user's needs.”

So there you have it, for those of you looking for a hard and durable tablet with pretty decent specs then this one is for you. Price starts at $699 according to Samsung.
