One of the themes in Samsung’s (SSNLF) new PRO line of tablets is size. All the PRO models have a slight display size advantage over many of their competitors while pushing the pixel count. The result is a tablet that’s friendlier for the prosumer and business market, where capability and productivity trump portability.
The Galaxy NotePRO 12.2 reviewed last week is the extreme version of this “bigger is better” approach, while the Galaxy TabPRO 8.4 is Samsung’s concession that some professionals might still want a tablet they can slip in a pocket. A big pocket, to be sure, but at least it doesn’t require a knapsack.
As our Galaxy TabPRO 8.4 review shows, the end product this time is a premium, relatively compact tablet that should make prosumers happy while offering business-friendly features that may just make this the best small tablet for professional use.
