Nice phone -- I meant "tablet". That tablet was my mom's. It's on Android 5.0.2 which is a very rare version of Android to see nowadays. It's very slow which kinda stinks. But I still like it. It's an amazing phone -- I meant "tablet" (terrible pun. I know.

I bought this back in October of 2014. Overall I love this tablet. I now have it running Android 5.0 Lolipop. This made the tablet faster and improved the overall user experience. The Camera could be better, but other than that it's great!

Nice mid-range tablet with Beautiful UI.

This is a 720p display. You will notice a difference if using an S5 and then the Galaxy Tab 4 – but let’s not compare the two. The 1280×800 screen is actually quite beautiful and not huge battery drainer. Text is sharp as are the graphics, both are quickly rendered thanks to the 1.5GB RAM and quad core processor. Yes, I think it should be a 1080p panel, but it’s a $299 tablet.
PS: The Galaxy Tab 4 will get lollipop upgrade.
Very happy customer.

Decent Tablet, But Nothing To Be Excited About
Fastcar800 has owned it for less than year before publishing this review
I got this tablet in mid December, early Christmas gift, you know? I was excited to open the box and pop out a fine Samsung tablet, and when I did, I was nowhere near disappointed. The design was nice and sleek, and that's surprising with a plastic body. The metal binding was nice to see holding it together.
As I used it (and still do), I tend to find its performance to be a bit lacking sometime. Even with a quad core processor and 1.5 GBs of RAM, it can tend to sometimes crash. Most of the time, however, it runs smoothly, even with higher powered games. But when it crashes, it hurts it.
The battery. Probably one of the best things about last year's Sammy device, I got roughly 8 - 10 hours on it a day, and that's good, because I use it often.
What about the camera? Well, for a 3.1 MP camera, it definitely performs well. I'm not a major photography kind of guy, but when I want to snap a quick shot, this suits just fine. Still, a flash couldn't hurt. The front camera does it's job, but then again, I don't take selfies often.
The display, while nothing to get excited over, suits its job. While being HD, it'd be nice to see a full HD display here.
TouchWiz is definitely getting better, and Samsung really impressed me here. It seems they've managed to perfect their tablet UI. It also is a multitasking powerhouse, especially thanks to it's multi window mode.
All in all, this is a decent tablet, but with speed issues, you might want to look towards a Tab S if you have more money. If...
