Samsung Galaxy Tab 12.2 review
Foot long! Get your foot long!

The Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro 12.2 comes with an 8MP rear facing camera, and a 2MP camera on the front of the tablet. I tested out the cameras, and put them through their paces to see how they stacked up against the competition.

Using the tablet outside the comfort of your own home or office is cumbersome, and you will more than likely be given strange looks from passersby - but if this does not deter you, and you have a bag big enough to transport the device with you, then there is no reason why you could not use this as your main camera on a day out.

Samsung has prioritised the rear facing camera by using the higher spec'd sensor at the back, but in reality you are more likely to use the front facing camera more often for features such as video calling.

To start with, the rear camera can produce some brilliant sharp images when used in a well-lit situation and colours are well reproduced and not overly saturated.

With that being said, when I tested the rear camera in low light situations it struggled to produce a clear image. The final product displayed a lot of grain/noise, also the picture was not clear and severely lacked definition.

Although, the Tab Pro 12.2 includes a rear flash in an attempt to increase the quality of the images taken in these low light conditions. The bright LED set into the rear case of the Tab Pro 12.2 can easily illuminate a subject in a small to medium room, but in larger rooms or open spaces the flash struggles to provide enough light to get the job done properly.

Samsung has provided the Galaxy Tab Pro with a pretty neat feature that allows you to use both cameras at the same time. This enables you to take a picture with the rear-facing camera of some friends, whilst also allowing you to take a selfie.
