Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 Nook review: good for reading, but hardly the best budget tablet

With an improved reading app, the Galaxy Tab 4 Nook could be a compelling choice for loyal Barnes & Noble customers. But if all you want is a budget Android tablet, you can do better, even at this price.

Pros
  • Good-looking design
  • Bright screen
  • The Nook app here is an improvement over the regular Nook for Android
  • Price includes some free books, magazines and TV shows
Cons
  • Short battery life compared to competing devices
  • Sluggish performance
  • Skimpy built-in storage
