Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 T231 comes with 1.2 GHz Quad Core processor and performs well with every graphic demanding game. With such a powerful processor, you would never face any lag and hence it also allows you to multi task. Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 T231 is powered by 1.5 GB RAM and makes gaming a brilliant experience. In order to check its graphic performance, I ran some graphic demanding games like Asphalt 7, Six Guns, Contract Killer and Amazing Spider-man 2. And to my surprise, they all ran with good graphics and playable FPS. Moreover, you can play games online and surf the internet without facing any lags. So, I must say that Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 T231 is a fancy pick for gamers and movie geeks.

Storage & battery

Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 T231 comes with 8 GB internal storage. However, available user memory of the device may be lower than the stated memory due to default pre-installed apps and device OS. But you can install microSD card to expand its storage and it supports microSD cards of up to 32 GB and never lags when you install some heavy apps. However, I recommend you not to install more than 10 heavy apps (around 100 MB each) as users have limited storage for app installation. Regarding battery and backup, it comes with 4000 mAh Lithium - Polymer battery which gives talk time of nearly 10 hours and standby time of 200 hours. When the device is exploited continuously with heavy games and browsing, the battery may last up to 8 hours.

Pros and Cons

Galaxy Tab 4 T231 features a very trendy premium look which easily attracts the attention of many tech enthusiasts. It is very light weight and weighs just 281 gm. Tab 4 features good touch screen and gives a brilliant response to the gestures. Moreover, user interface is also good and easy to handle. This tablet is well optimized for regular non-hardcore gaming and perfectly runs all the mid end games like Contract Killer, Asphalt 7 and Counter Strike. Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 T231 is intelligently built to support almost all types of video formats. The built-in document viewer is very good and easy to use. This tab is fast enough for regular usage such as chat, mail and of course YouTube streaming. Moreover, battery life is quite good and lasts nearly for 10 - 12 hours for medium usage. Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 T231 comes with Android Kitkat and the sound quality for phone calls is quite good.

Galaxy Tab 4 T231 does not features dual speakers as we have seen in Tab 3 and hence it totally relies on just one speaker which is present at the back side. So, some users may find the volume to be low considering its price range. The headphone's output is very good and the equalizers work perfectly when the headphones are connected. Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 T231 is a moderate gaming tablet which sometimes hangs when some high end games like Modern Combat 4 or Call of Duty Strike Team are played with this tab. But overall this tab is good for normal usage and performs really well in most of the situations.
