Samsung's Galaxy Tab 4 8.0 arrives on AT&T's shelves in a matter of days boasting LTE connectivity and an affordable price tag.

We're here in New York at AT&T's annual holiday preview where the carrier is showing off its latest wares, including the Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 8.0, available online beginning July 15 for $269.99 with a two-year contract, or for $369.99 outright.

The Galaxy Tab 4 8.0 isn't on the top of Samsung's pecking order, but it's impressive nonetheless: with an 8-inch 1280x800 display, a Snapdragon 400 quad-core processor, 1.5 GB of RAM, and LTE connectivity, the Tab 4 is a solid choice for tablet buyers who want to avoid breaking the bank.

You'll quickly notice that the display pales in comparison to the recent Galaxy Tab S line, but it's far from terrible. The same can be said for the overall design of the Tab 4: it's not quite as nice as the Tab S, but it's not quite as expensive, either.

Performance-wise, things are pretty smooth. This tablet should suit casual users pretty well, as the Snapdragon 400 is enough to keep KitKat and TouchWiz running pretty quickly. And in terms of TouchWiz, this is the same version shipping on all Samsung tablets at the moment – just as crowded, bloated, and useful as ever.

You can check out our review of the Galaxy Tab 4 8.0 here while you wait a few more days before it hits AT&T's shelves.

Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 8.0 for AT&T hands on


Still has a button on it. If we can't get that fixed, why bother with anything else?

This is an OK tablet. I picked up the WiFi-only version when it came out. I'll have to admit that there are some lag issues when gaming. Plants vs. Zombies 2 used to cause awful lag on this tablet... and there are a lot of bloat apps pre-installed Luckily i was able to disable most of them... and when the root became available I was able to FREEZE the ones I couldn't disable. The screen is OK but is a smear-magnet.. I had to put a screen protector over it and the speaker is ok for some music and games but you can't hear anything for movie playback.
