Reviews for the Samsung Galaxy Tab S 10.5

83% Samsung Galaxy Tab S 10.5 review
Source: PC Pro English
As with most of Samsung’s recent flagship mobile products, the Galaxy Tab S 10.5 is an excellent tablet that we’d be more than happy to own. It’s packed with useful features, the screen is beautiful, both battery life and performance are top-notch and the design is the very definition of svelte. However, in a head-to-head against our current favourite Android 10in tablet, it just misses out on the win. The differences are small, but the Sony Xperia Z2 Tablet’s better battery life, water-resistance and slightly faster performance mean that this Samsung - fantastic although it is - slips marginally behind.

80% If you're after a tablet with an impossibly great screen... this is it
Source: Techradar English
Having spent plenty of time with both variations of the Tab S, it has to be said that these are great devices — from the eye-catching screen to the raw power under the hood, Samsung couldn't have done much better with what could be a final attempt to compete with Apple at the top-end of the market. If this doesn't make a dent in the iPad sales figures perhaps nothing will. There are still question marks over Android which aren't all Samsung's fault. With the release of Android L in the autumn some of these problems might be ironed out, but when the Tab S will get Samsung's version of the new operating system is anyone's guess.

80% Samsung Galaxy Tab S review
Source: T3 English
There's no question about it: this is the best tablet Samsung has yet made and it's arguably the slickest, most effective Android tablet available. There are plenty of innovations, from the fingerprint sensor to the click-in covers to protect your hardware. The slim, light styling is a revelation, especially from a company whose design language was limited in its tablets before. Will it be enough to take a chunk out of iPad sales? Apple's sublime ease of use and better range of optimised apps are tough to beat, but this tablet has the best chance of causing a sea change of any Android machine yet.

Samsung Galaxy Tab S 10.5 review: Splashing colors
Source: GSM Arena English
A number of Intel-based tablets with full-blown Windows 8.1 are also available in this price range. HP Omni 10 5620 is a fine member of the bunch. Its display is inferior to that of the Samsung Galaxy Tab S 10.5, but its lower price and serious work credentials make it worth a look. Samsung Galaxy Tab S 10.5 is undeniably the best full-size tablet to come from the South Korean manufacturer to date. Despite facing much stiffer competition than its smaller relative, the big fella is just as worthy of sporting the famous S in its name. It therefore deserves a spot at the top of the shopping list of anyone looking for such a device regardless of the OS.

Galaxy Tab S 10.5 vs Surface Pro 3 comparison: thin and light Samsung great for media, but the Surface Pro 3 will help you get things done
Source: PC Advisor English
The Surface Pro 3 and the Galaxy Tab S 10.5 are both impressive tablets that offer stunning, big, bright and colourful displays. They're both ideal for multi-tasking – running more than one app simultaneously, side by side – but you won't be able to run powerful desktop apps like Photoshop on the Android tablet like you can on the Surface. If you're simply looking for a thin-and-light tablet with a big display, you'll probably find you're better off with the Galaxy Tab S, but for a device that could potentially replace your laptop completely, it's the mid- to high-range Surface Pro 3 models you're after.

Samsung Galaxy Tab S 10.5 vs iPad Air: the big tablets compared
Source: PC Advisor English
It’s too early to say which tablet is the best, as we still need to test performance, battery life and camera quality among other things. It’s clear that the Tab S 10.5 is a strong rival to the iPad Air, but for those who own other Apple products the iPad Air may remain the obvious choice.

The Samsung Galaxy Tab S 10.5 is one of the firm's best ever tablets with a thin and light design and impressive specs. It's got pretty much everything you could want on a tablet, and it is priced competitively against its key rivals.

80% Samsung Galaxy Tab S 10.5
Source: PC Mag English
The Galaxy Tab S 10.5 is the best Android tablet around right now. But our Editors' Choice still stays with the iPad Air because of software, not hardware. The air has a better library of streaming services, better productivity software, and even one of Samsung's flagship apps, Marvel Unlimited, runs more stably on the Air than on the Galaxy Tab S. If you're dead-set on an Android tablet, the Tab S will delight, but the Air is still a safer bet for the platform-independent.

90% Galaxy Tab S review: The screen's the thing with this iPad rival
Source: PC World English
The Tab S offers a double threat, first with its high-res Super AMOLED display and then with an incredibly thin profile. Add to fact that both the 8.4- and 10.5-inch versions are lighter than the iPad Mini and iPad Air, and Samsung’s latest flagship tablets are bound to turn heads.

Samsung Galaxy Tab S review: 10.5 and 8.4 Android glamour
Source: Slashgear English
On that basis, there’s plenty to like about the Galaxy Tab S. The 10.5-inch model is a beautiful movie machine, with great speaker performance and sufficiently lightweight construction that even if you’re holding it for the duration, your arms shouldn’t get tired. As for the 8.4-inch version, its slender build and minimal bezels fit a much bigger display into a form-factor closer to slates in the 7-inch category, balancing media consumption with the ability to fit into an overcoat pocket.

Samsung Galaxy Tab S Series: First Impressions
Source: NDTV Gadgets English
The Tab S is also thinner than other leading tablets, at a quarter of an inch (6.6 millimeters). The model with the smaller screen is lighter, too. Samsung Electronics Co. achieves all this by using a display technology previously limited to smartphones. It's called AMOLED, for active-matrix organic light-emitting diodes. Samsung released an AMOLED tablet in 2012, but it was expensive and didn't sell well. The new ones are priced more competitively - the same as iPads of comparable size.

90% Galaxy Tab S review: Samsung takes another swipe at the iPad
Source: Greenbot English
Samsung has continued to churn out tablet after smartphone after tablet, but something about the Tab S duo seems more impressive than any of the competition, especially in the Android space. Maybe it’s the fact the company’s latest flagship tablets really are that good. Or maybe it’s just nice to see a tablet genuinely challenge the iPad.

Whether you like to watch a lot of video on your tablet or you enjoy looking through everyone's Facebook photos, the Galaxy Tab S 10.5 gives you a pretty awesome canvas in a very slim and light design. The Super AMOLED screen boasts richer colors, a higher resolution and better viewing angles than the iPad Air. Not everyone will love the oversaturated hues, but there's no denying that this is a gorgeous panel.

Samsung’s Latest Tablet Boasts Sleek Hardware, Confusing Software

Last fall, Apple scored an engineering coup when it managed to shrink its full-sized tablet down to just one pound in weight and 0.29 inches in thickness, while retaining and even expanding its longtime lead over competitors in battery life. This svelte model was dubbed the iPad Air.

Samsung Galaxy Tab S 10.5 vs Sony Xperia Z2 Tablet comparison review: The best 10in tablets you can buy
Source: PC Advisor English
These are undoubtedly two of the best 10in tablets money can buy. It's a close call between them so you've got to ask yourself whether the Galaxy Tab S is worth pay an extra £50 for gaining you namely a higher res screen and a fingerprint scanner. If these aren't killer features for you then the Sony Xperia Z2 Tablet won't disappoint.
