Samsung ATIV Tab

 

Samsung's first Windows 8 RT tablet, complete with Galaxy S3 finish.

The Samsung ATIV Tab Windows 8 RT tablet offers a decent spread of features, connectivity and fairly snazzy looks. However, without knowing how much the thing will cost it’s hard to know how it compares with the Windows 8 RT offerings from Asus, Sony...

The Samsung Ativ Tab is the most traditional of the tablets unveiled in the Ativ range. Pegged as a Windows 8 alternative to the Note 10.1, it's designed

Samsung Ativ Tab review

 

Trying to make Windows RT into a top tablet platform.

Great battery life ; Loads of storage ; Full featured office software ; Good for media

Clunky interface ; Limited app selection ; Expensive ; Disappointing screen

Jessie J may not care about the money, money, money, but we do - and whenever we look at the Ativ Tab we have to admit that we care about the price tag. You're paying a premium but this isn't a premium product: it's lacking the X factor.

Samsung ATIV Tab Review: A Tablet To Hold Your Breath For?

Eager for more specific information about the battery that Samsung uses in the ATIV Tab, we took our sample apart and found the same 30.75 Wh power source used in the Smart PC 500T. That'll make our battery life testing a little more interesting, as we...

Samsung Ativ Tab review

 

This 10in Windows RT tablet aims to outshine Microsoft's in-house effort with a Qualcomm chipset and nine hours of battery life. But is it worth the high-price point?

Sadly, despite decent hardware from Samsung, the Ativ Tab and its skinny take on Microsoft’s Windows RT fails to make the truncated OS any more usable – and at £550, this lack of utility is hard to swallow.

Samsung ATIV Tab - Review

 

Samsung ATIV Tab, a Windows RT based tablet, is this to be an Apple or Google competitor? My personal opinion, no. Purely because I believe that a full blown version of Windows needs to be on a desktop machine, not [...

Samsung Ativ Tab review

 

If reviewing the Samsung Ativ tab will be good for anything it's this: letting us know whether all Windows RT tablets are handicapped by their operating system in the way the Microsoft Surface RT was.

Thin, Light, Capable camera, Smooth performance

Expensive, Plasticky, Under developed OS, Lack of value added Samsung additions

If it wasn’t so expensive, we would have found it easier to recommend a Samsung Ativ Tab. As it stands though, £549 could get you a Google Nexus 10 and a Google Nexus 7 with around £50 left over. Not bad for two altogether better tablets.

Samsung ATIV Tab review: the Windows RT tablet you'll never find in the US

 

In a world that's increasingly dominated by tablets, Microsoft, whose fortune is intertwined with desktops and laptops, needed to prevent its customers

Amazing battery life ; Solid hardware ; Fantastic for productivity

WiFi Sync is a pain ; Windows RT still lacks some big-name apps ; You'll pay a premium over the equivalent Surface

Samsung’s Windows RT tablet beats the Surface RT in plenty of ways; it’s just a shame it can’t beat it on price.
