  • Excerpt: For our smart device reviews, we're going to do something a little different here. PC hardware can be reviewed with hard numbers, charts and all that jazz, but the same can't really be said for smart devices. We're going to concentrate more on the look, feel and experience of the device, rather than numbers. After all, virtually all personal use of a smart device comes down to these factors, but we will still include some benchmarks so you can see how they perform.

Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9

CNET
4 February 2012
  • Summary: Large enough to enjoy a film on but smaller than a hardback book, 8.9 inches could be the perfect size for a tablet. Add good build quality and great performance and the only thing holding back the Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9 is its shocking price-tag.
  • Cons: High price; still a few bugs; lacks the integration of Apple or Amazon tablets.

Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9 (Wi-Fi)

PC Magazine

  • Conclusion: The Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9 is better than its larger sibling, delivering the same Android tablet performance in a more compact package with a lower price. But it still suffers from the app deficit that plagues Android tablets.
  • Pros: Very thin. Well-built. Good battery life. Solid performance.
  • Cons: Android tablets are still short on tablet-specific apps. No HDMI out. No schedule for Android 3.2 upgrade.

Review of Samsung's compact Galaxy Tab 8.9 Android tablet

MobileBurn
24 October 2011
  • Summary: The Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9 is the long-awaited smaller sibling to the Galaxy Tab 10.1 that was released earlier this year. One would not be faulted for confusing the two tablets upon first glance, as the 8.9 is nearly identical to the 10.1, save for its slightly smaller (and lighter) build.
  • Pros: Thin and light design, nice screen, great battery life
  • Cons: Sluggish performance, UI inconsistencies, lack of apps

Samsung GALAXY Tab 8.9 Review

Phone Arena
30 September 2011
  • Conclusion: If you find the original 7” Samsung GALAXY Tab too small and the GALAXY Tab 10.1 too big for you to handle, then it’s a no-brainer conclusion that the GALAXY Tab 8.9 offers that tangible solution in bridging the gap. Although it’s almost hard to not like this offering, especially when it’s fashioned after its bigger brother, there are some things that diminish its overall appeal in drastically establishing its own identity.
  • Pros: Brilliant and colorful display, Razor thin profile construction, Good battery life
  • Cons: Sluggish performance, Kinda expensive

Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9 (Wi-Fi)

LAPTOP Magazine
30 September 2011
  • Summary: It's pretty remarkable that Samsung was able to squeeze the same parts from its 10-inch tablet into the Galaxy Tab 8.9. It performs just as well, and the screen and audio are both impressive. However, at $469, you'll need to spend almost as much to get your hands on this smaller slate than you would to buy the Tab 10.1.
  • Pros: Attractive slim design, Fast performance, Great display, Loud crisp audio, Compact size
  • Cons: A bit pricey, No SD card slot

Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9

  • Excerpt: After tinkering with the new Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9 , one thing is clear: Samsung has really done its homework on the tablet market. The Tab 8.9 offers the same functionality and performance of its big brother, the Tab 10.1, but with a smaller display size (8.9 inches vs. 10.1 inches, of course) and lighter weight. Despite its smaller screen, the Tab 8.9 still has the same crisp, colorful 170 ppi display that has made the Tab 10.1 so popular.

Review: Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9

Cybershack
16 March 2012
  • Excerpt: For those salivating over the release of the iPad 3 will be disappointed to learn that the 4G version of the tablet will not work in Australia. This is due to bandwidth problems – it will operate on the 2100MHz or 700MHz frequencies, but the only 4G network in Australia, which is run by Telstra, only works on 1800MHz. However, there is a tablet available that will work on that bandwidth – Samsung’s Galaxy Tab 8.9.
  • Pros: 4G-enabled, light, good size, excellent resolution
  • Cons: Not enough 4G coverage yet, uses Honeycomb operating, pricey

Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9 review

Stuff.tv
18 November 2011
  • Summary: Where Apple spent years carefully giving birth to a single iPad, Samsung’s Galaxy Tab family is expanding with all the thought and consideration of a hutch full of bunnies. The latest tablet to pop into life is the mid-sized Galaxy Tab 8.9, a slim widescreen tablet with a High Def display and motion-sensitive goodies. So much for the carrot – the stick is a stiff £400+ price-point that puts it head-to-head with Apple’s only child.
