For the Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9 we could say that it is a tablet with modern features located between its two brothers Galaxy Tab 10.1 and Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus. It is a tablet that Samsung made by simply reducing its bigger brother.
Galaxy Tab 8.9 is made of plastic with a metal texture. As for the design, this is because only the dark version, ie gray, is available to customers. Customers will only be able to balance between two memories – 16 or 32 GB, but without the help of MicroSD cards because this option is not provided.
Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9 vs Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1
With dimensions of 230.9 x 157.8 x 8.6 mm, it is a shade smaller and lighter than the larger model, but it is much more comfortable to handle and carry in bags. So Samsung has worked on it and it is to be commended. Despite this, the Galaxy Tab 8.9 has a PLS TFT LCD screen with a resolution of 1,280 x 800 pixels. The pixel density is considerable, which is reflected in the good image quality, and it is, in that respect, slightly better than the Galaxy Tab 10.1. Viewing angles are great, the only question left is why Samsung opted for the TFT and not the great Super AMOLED Plus screen.
The Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9 has a great 6,100 mAh battery.
With its 1 GHz and 1 GB of RAM, the Galaxy Tab 8.9 consumes moderate battery power. This does not affect the operation of the tablet itself, because it takes the same or slightly more time to open applications than this Galaxy Tab 10.1. As the Galaxy Tab 10.1 has an impressive 7,000mAh battery, it is clear why it is one of the tablets whose batteries hold the longest energy. The Galaxy Tab 8.9 is right next to it with 6,100 mAh, which is enough for 9:55 hours of active operation. The cameras are identical to the Galaxy Tab 10.1 (3.15 MP rear and 2.0 MP front).
Galaxy Tab 8.9 comes with an Android operating system, more precisely version 3.2 (Honeycomb).
