    Hello, since my old tablet broke, ive been looking into getting a new one, so i was wondering, which one is the best at running semi-graphic to semi-heavy games (i.e Madden Mobile, Nba live Mobile, and Hitman: Sniper) These are the two devices (BTW tell me if there is a drastic difference or not please, Thanks)

    Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 7" 8GB
    (Specs) http://www.gsmarena.com/samsung_galaxy_tab_4_7_0-6251.php

    Samsung Galaxy Tab A 9.7"
    (Specs) http://www.phonearena.com/phones/Samsung-Galaxy-Tab-A-9.7_id9365

    Tab A. There's also an 8 inch version of that.

    We're talking about a 2 year difference in processor tech. The Tan 4 would be barely able to handle high end games. Not that the Tab A is much better, but the Tab 4 was released 2014 as a budget device.

    A few posts have been deleted, the OP's looking for opinions and suggestions on tablets, not other portable devices. Please keep that in mind when responding. :)

    Depends on the games. If you're going for high end games, doubt it. If you want to keep playing for high end games the next 2 or 3 years, you'd want top of the line tablets. The Tab 4 performance is about similar to a Note 2, so that's 4 year old tech we're talkinh about. The Tab A is perhaps Note 3 level. So thats 3 year old tech. You'd want to get a Tab S or S2.

    Average games should probably do fine.

    Maybe similar to Tab A. Not sure of the performance of that chipset but the Tab A is supposed to be the replacement for the cheapest lowest end Samsung tablet for this year.

    The tab you linked to only has 8GB storage, you'll probably find that quite debilitating if you're looking to install large games like Asphalt and Madden etc.

    Are you sure you're getting the Tab A with 8GB storage? That's not enough.

    Won't work much for it. Only part of the game will move to SD card, and since even the fastest SD card is slower than the NAND flash onboard, moving games to it will affect performance and may cause lag or freezes on the game. If you want to play games, don't do budget stuff, pay for higher end devices.

    I wouldn't know how much thr exact difference would be, looks like there wouldn't be much noticeable difference based on specs alone. But again, I wouldn't really want to game on either device.
