  • No cellular connectivity
  • Relatively low performance

Bottom Line

The rugged design of the Galaxy Tab Active makes it ideal for mobile users working in less than ideal environments.

The Samsung Galaxy Tab Active is an 8-inch tablet praised for its rugged design, outstanding battery life, protective bumper case and built in stylus. Its IP67 dust and water-resistant certification grants that it will work after being immersed in up to 1-meter deep water for 30 minutes, and its rugged design shrugs off harsh use and multiple drops and hits. However, users were critical of its average performance, subpar audio quality and lack of cellular connectivity. The Samsung Galaxy Tab Active will surely be a hit in the rugged phone niche market. However, it is counter-intuitive for such a workhorse to lack cellular connectivity, a requirement for any job site.

    Samsung wants to participate more strongly in the business field with its Galaxy Tab Active. The tablet is not only dust and waterproof, but it also protected against drops. It might just be an interesting alternative for field workers with LTE and stylus inputting.

    Although it lacks 4G, this business-focused tablet is durable enough to withstand almost any job site, and it has the battery life to go the distance.

    With a battery that can outlast your flight and a form that keeps it safe from snow, the Tab Active is beset by a small hard disk, no cellular option, and an inability to survive multiple falls
