Samsung Galaxy Tab S 8.4

The Samsung Galaxy Tab S 8.4 is Samsung’s latest version of the ever popular tablet-form devices. Design-wise, the tablet follows the latest Samsung trend with its dazzling white color and faux-leather backing; the same pattern found on the Galaxy S5. Display on the table is an 8.4 inch WQXGA Super AMOLED panel 1600 x 2560 Pixel, 360 ppi.

The WiFi enabled tablet runs on Android 4.4 KitKat and packs an Exynos 5 Octa (1.9 GHz quad core + 1.3 Ghz quad core) processor. The Samsung Galaxy Tab S 8.4 also comes with 3 GB RAM and 16 GB memory. There is an option to increase storage with the use of a MicroSD card up to 128 GB.

This is plenty storage for intense users looking to fill their device with bucket loads of application and media. The tablet is equipped with an 8 MP rear facing camera and a 2.1 MP front camera. The overall dimensions are 21.26 x 12.55 x 0.66 cm (8.37" x 4.94" x 0.26") and weights at 294 g (10.37 oz). Battery life is very good with 10 hours internet use time, 80 hours music play time and 12 hours of video play time. This is possible with the Lithium Ion, 4900 mAh.

Stunning screen. Samsung also relies on a high-resolution, Super AMOLED screen in its Galaxy Tab S 8.4. It is the tablet's absolute highlight. The in-house processor is good, but cannot compete with current high-end SoCs. Otherwise, the equipment is state-of-the-art and even includes LTE. Only better speakers and NFC would be appreciated.
Samsung Galaxy Tab S vs Galaxy Tab S2 comparison: Samsung's latest tablet is even better than its predecessor
Source: PC Advisor English
We can’t give our final verdict until we get the Galaxy Tab 2 back to PC Advisor towers, and put it through its paces. However, based on our first impressions with the Tab S2 and previous knowledge of the original Tab S, we’re impressed. With regards to design, the Tab S2 wins – it’s incredibly thin and light, and the screen is gorgeous. However, at a discounted price, the original Tab S is also a bargain and could be a winner – we’ll have to wait on the pricing of the Tab S2 to be announced first!

Although some of the Galaxy Tab S 8.4’s software additions are of questionable value and it has a few design flaws, it’s a great tablet nevertheless. Battery life and screen quality are top-notch, making it one of the best Android tablets available. Despite a few design niggles, Samsung’s latest tablet is simply superb.

Nexus 9 vs Samsung Galaxy Tab S 8.4 comparison review: Cheaper and feature-packed Tab S nips Nexus 9
Source: PC Advisor English
This is a close call as the Nexus 9 and Galaxy Tab S 8.4 both have pros and cons. If you don't mind spending more, then Google's tablet has better performance and battery life but is chunkier. Samsung's isn't as slick but is impressively svelte and has features not found on the Nexus 9. Now the Tab S is cheaper you can save money by going this way and installing the Google Now launcher if you don't like TouchWiz so it just nips the win here but both are great choices for an Android tablet.

The Tab S 16GB/Wi-Fi model reviewed here is available at a price tag of AED 1,699, but if you opt for the 3G version you will have churn out AED 2,099. The Tab S is also available in 10.1-inch version for AED 2099 (Wi-Fi only) and AED 2599 (3G). I personally own the 10.1-inch model of Galaxy Tab 3 and am quite impressed with its performance and features minus the form-factor. After reviewing the Tab S, I genuinely fell in love with this device and believe it’s time to switch. Its slim design and amazing features combined with excellent price point, makes it one of the best tab available.

The Samsung Galaxy Tab S 8.4 is one of the best Android tablets we've ever reviewed. In terms of hardware it's the best you can buy right now and has a superbly thin and light design.

The Galaxy Tab S devices give Android users two slim and solid alternatives to the iPad Air and iPad Mini. Stock Android would have been great, and metal backings wouldn’t have made these ultralight tablets too heavy at all. But neither of those things are as important as these flagship Samsung slates’ strengths: Superb screens, smooth performance, solid battery life, and unbelievably svelte physiques.

Having won four rounds to the Galaxy Tab S 8.4's three, the iPad Mini 2 with Retina display is the winner of this versus review. Featuring robust security, significantly better battery life and a cleaner, more intuitive user interface the iPad Mini 2 remains one of the best small form factor tablets currently available.

Samsung Galaxy Tab S 8.4: 4G Android tablet is easy to swallow
Source: Reg Hardware English
Buy it direct from Samsung and the Galaxy Tab S 8.4 LTE will set you back £399 – or to put it another way, £20 less than the cheapest (16GB, no memory card) Wi-Fi and cellular iPad mini Retina. Pick one up from a cellco like 3, which supplied my review unit, and for £50 upfront and £33 a month you get the slab and 15GB of data each month. In a nutshell then, the Tab S 8.4 is thin and light with decent battery life, a good camera, even better speakers, a cellphone and a very impressive display. The best tablet in the world? Pretty much.

Featuring a great display, powerful processor, above average – for a tablet – camera and wealth of security services, the Galaxy Tab S 8.4 is a stellar device that easily matches, if not beats the performance of other small form-factor tablets. Were it not for the Galaxy Tab S 8.4's slightly disappointing battery, the device may have been the first non-Nexus small form factor Android tablet to receive V3's five-star rating.

The Galaxy Tab S 8.4 is an amalgamation of the Tab Pro 8.4 along with the Galaxy S5. The hardware, especially the display is of top notch and the tablet is a powerhouse when it comes to performance and productivity. The design might not appeal to some, although Samsung has put in efforts to make it as slim as possible and has even splashed some nice metal accents. Overall, this is the best tablet from Samsung in the 7-8 inch range and for the money, we think the Tab S 8.4 is a great buy.

The Samsung Galaxy Tab S 8.4 is an incredible tablet with almost no flaws. Superb screen, unique features, a battery that doesn’t need charging every night… really, there's very little that's missing here. But for us the iPad Mini stays on top by a whisker for its unrivalled tablet design, absolutely flawless performance and wider selection of optimised tablet apps. Sure, the Tab S 8.4 is smaller than most Android tablets and both the Magazine UI and Papergarden help but the App Store is where you’ll find the best apps for (slightly) bigger screens.

There's a lot of good to say about the Samsung Galaxy Tab S 8.4. So much that it irks us just how many other Tab devices are available through the range, because it muddies the water. In short the S sets the mark for Android tablets at this price point and size. All there is to do now is simplify the naming convention and deliver a slightly more premium build - then it'll be job done Samsung.

After several attempts at dethroning the iPad, looks like Samsung has finally got it right with the Galaxy Tab S. With an excellent display, powerful processing and great speaker quality, there’s little going against the Galaxy Tab S. It might not provide the 10 hour battery life that the iPad does, but it’s pretty close and adequate to get you through a day’s work.

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.

If you're looking for an Android tablet, then the Samsung Galaxy Tab S 8.4 is certainly a fantastic, if rather expensive choice. The 8.4in display strikes a great middle ground between small 7in tablets and hulking 10in examples, both of which look to be falling slowly out of favour. If you don’t want to spend as much, the Google Nexus 7 is now available for around £150 which makes it excellent value.

There are two answers here. If you’re choosing between this and an iPad mini 2 then we’d still recommend the iPad. While the Samsung Galaxy Tab S 8.4’s screen gives it an edge, the iPad’s screen is still very good and it comfortably wins for its better design, slicker software and superior tablet apps. The only alternative we’d consider is the LG G Pad 8.3. It’s not as fast as the Samsung and doesn’t have an AMOLED screen, but it’s only £200 and a very good cheaper alternative. Those after the pure Google experience should consider waiting for the much-rumoured Nexus 8 tablet, too, but we’d be very surprised if it matches the quality of this Samsung AMOLED screen.

Review: Samsung Galaxy Tab S 8.4
Source: Gizmag English
On a hardware level, the Galaxy Tab S is in a league of its own. No other series of tablets – iPad included – gives you such an outstanding combination of screen quality, lightness and thinness. On a software level, it has a few cool tricks up its sleeve as well. But there is that pesky lack of edge touch rejection, along with a tablet app library that still lags behind the App Store's. The Tab S 8.4 is an excellent tablet – one of the best around – and is most definitely worth a look. But for those reasons it isn't quite the no-brainer buy over the Retina iPad mini that it could have been.

The Samsung Galaxy Tab S 8.4 is a very impressive small tablet with a thin and light design combine with a large screen. That display is gorgeous but Samsung's SuperAMOLED isn't for everyone. There's a lot of tech packed into this device, such as the fingerprint scanner and IR blaster, but while it price-matches the iPad mini you will have to pay more for it than rival Android tablets such as the Nexus 7.

The Samsung Galaxy Tab S 8.4 is the biggest step yet by the manufacturer on its way to the top of the tablet market. It is also the first compact Android tablet which can legitimately give the iPad mini 2 a bloody nose not only on paper, but also in real life, without downplaying Google's and Amazon's efforts. But while the likes of Kindle and Nexus are good at cutting Apples' prices, Samsung is throwing everything and the AMOLED screen.

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 S2 8.0 inch

The Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 8.0 inch is the next generation tablet that takes advantage of the 4:3 aspect ratio to make reading on the device more comfortable. Built quality is improved compared to its predecessor and the overall design has undergone even more refinement. There are two colors to choose from; white or black gold. The edges are curved and back panel is contoured nicely around the perimeter to aid with ergonomics. With a thickness of just 5.6 mm and an overall weight of around 260 g, the Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 8.0 inch is certainly a joy to carry around. The 8.0 inch Super AMOLED display with a pixel density of 320 ppi produces good image quality and contrast. The Android 5.0.2 Lollipop tablet comes with an octa-core processor combining 1.9 GHz and 1.3 GHz quad-core processors. There are 3 GB RAM and depending on the version either 32 GB or 64 GB internal storage. Other features include a fingerprint scanner, Bluetooth 4.1, A-GPS and microUSB 2.0. There is an 8 MP autofocus rear camera and a 2.1 MP front camera. The Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 8.0 inch comes with a non-removable Lithium-Ion battery rated at 4000 mAh.

80% Samsung's iPad mini 4 rival really is gorgeous, both inside & out
Source: PC Advisor English
We loved the Galaxy Tab S2 since the very first time we got our hands on it back in August, and upon further investigation and after spending more time with it we just love it even more. It's a tablet well worth considering if you've been thinking about buying the iPad mini 4, as it can contend and sometimes outshine Apple's tablet when it comes to design and power. It's almost unbelievably thin and light and that screen is a joy to use. This tablet is about to make its way into the best tablet char, and it won't come quietly.

We're big fans of the Tab S2 8.0. It brings you all the great features of its bigger brother, but in a smaller, even lighter form design. If screen size matters, then the Tab S2 9.7­ gives you a bigger picture. Nevertheless, the 8-­inch model is great for reading books and magazines, playing games and watching movies while being just that little bit easier to brandish. For our money, this is the best of the small ­screen Android tablets and a really strong rival to the iPad Mini 4. If you’d rather go Android than iOS, this is the mini Android slate to buy.

There’s a lot to think about if you’re contemplating picking up the Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 8.0-inch. First and foremost, you’ll need to know it carries a $399.99 premium to pick up. While steep, it’s not all that surprising. For the price and all, you get an incredibly skinny and lightweight tablet filled with high-end specs and a better-than-average performance across the board.

The Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 is a lightweight tablet that's a lightweight upgrade over last year's Galaxy Tab S. Andbeyond the thinner and lighter design, it can't keep up with the iPad Air 2. There's still plenty of reason to invest in this reading and web surfing-friendly tablet. Its size and shape is better suited for everything but video, and for some, that's a big plus.

There's an obsession among tablet makers with building the thinnest and lightest devices that each generation of technology allows. Samsung leads the way with its Galaxy Tab S2, a beautifully crafted slate with a gorgeous display, subtle accents, and a soft-touch backside. Measuring 5.6mm thick and weight only 265 grams, the 8" Galaxy Tab 2's dimensions are about more than bragging rights.

The Samsung is a great tablet, though, at any price. The most important aspect of any tablet is the screen, and here the Galaxy Tab S2 just knocks it clean out of the park. Everything from movies to games to animated GIFs look utterly stupendous – so good, in fact, that I regularly found myself picking up the Tab S2 in preference to my iPad mini 2. Yes, it’s bloody expensive, but it’s also refined, dainty and runs Android – and some people love that kind of thing. If that’s just what you’ve been looking for, you should probably go out and buy one.

If you're set on a compact Android tablet, there's no doubt the Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 8.0 is the best there is. It certainly has a premium price, but it has a great screen and excellent battery life. It wins a Recommended award. However, if you're not tied to Android, I think the iPad Mini 4 has the edge. Apple's tablet may have worse battery life, but has similar screen quality and is significantly faster. If you're looking for something else entirely, our best tablets article can help.

You get a more powerful processor, a display that remains one of the best on the market, and hardware that's lighter, thinner, and more beautiful than ever before, all for the same price as last year's model.

Samsung Galaxy Tab S vs Galaxy Tab S2 comparison: Samsung's latest tablet is even better than its predecessor
Source: PC Advisor English
We can’t give our final verdict until we get the Galaxy Tab 2 back to PC Advisor towers, and put it through its paces. However, based on our first impressions with the Tab S2 and previous knowledge of the original Tab S, we’re impressed. With regards to design, the Tab S2 wins – it’s incredibly thin and light, and the screen is gorgeous. However, at a discounted price, the original Tab S is also a bargain and could be a winner – we’ll have to wait on the pricing of the Tab S2 to be announced first!

Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 9.7

The Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 9.7 is a fully fledged tablet suitable for users looking to get a slightly bigger screen real estate at 9.7 inches. One of the selling points of this tablet is the 4:3 aspect ratio making reading on the tablet feel more natural. Design-wise the device looks pretty much the same as most Samsung devices. The edges are curved and the physical home button is surrounded by touch sensitive menu and back buttons. The back cover is slightly textured to provide a comfortable feel, the chassis itself is solid and premium to the touch. Depending on the requirements, users can choose between two models: a Wi-Fi only model or the 3G/LTE variant. The 9.7 inch Super AMOLED display features a 264 ppi pixel density. The Android 5.0.2 tablet sports octa core architecture consisting of two quad-core processors clocked at 1.9 GHz and 1.3 GHz, respectively, which is combined with 3 GB RAM and either 32 GB or 64 GB internal storage. Other features are Bluetooth 4.1, A-GPS and microUSB 2.0. The image capture quality is decent with the 8 MP autofocus camera and a 2.1 MP front camera. There is a Lithium-Ion battery rated at 5870 mAh for long battery life.

With the 32GB Wi-Fi only version costing £399 direct from Samsung, the Galaxy Tab S2 9.7 is priced on a par with the 16GB 9.7-inch iPad Air 2. It has the same screen resolution in a lighter and thinner package, and of course more storage, so it’s clear to see what the target is here. The Samsung offers good performance in everyday use and is likely to deliver better battery life than the iPad as well.

80% Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 review: the closest thing yet to an Android iPad
Source: T3 English
Is the Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 the slate to unseat Apple? Not quite, but in many ways it feels like an Android iPad. It’s a joy to use thanks to a thin and light design, a big and bright screen and plenty of power, which are the most important things really. Well, those and battery life, which isn’t quite as good as it could be, but there’s still enough juice here to see you through an average day of use with ease. All that and the Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 won’t cost you any more than an iPad mini 4. It’s not as beautiful to behold as Apple’s tablets and with a not fully premium design it doesn’t feel quite as high-end, but if you’re after an Android slate with a great screen then this is right up there.

80% A genuine iPad rival?
Source: Pocket Lint English
The Samsung Galaxy Tab S2's strongest aspect is its size and the weight, giving you plenty of display, while remaining light and slimline. There's lot to like about this tablet. There's a great deal of vibrancy to the display and while that looks good in many apps, it can be a little over-bearing depending on the content you're viewing. It adds pop to website images, but isn't as natural when it comes to watching your favourite movies. We like the 4:3 aspect though, as it's convenient when reading and browsing.

This feels almost completely obvious but the Tab S2 9.7" is definitely the most compelling tablet that Samsung has released to date, and I think it's a good overall upgrade over the Tab S 10.5". Over the course of the review I've found some aspects of the Tab S2 to be really great, and others that need improvement next time around. It's worth going over them all again before coming to any final conclusions about the tablet.

Leave it to Samsung to ruin one of its best products. The original Tab S had plenty going for it -- except few people bought it. That's one reason Samsung might have chosen to make its new model more iPad-like. But by focusing on the spec race with Apple, instead of what's actually best for consumers, Samsung ended up sacrificing one of its best features: long runtime.

If you’re looking for a tablet companion of your own and you want to stick to Android, either size of the Galaxy Tab S2 will work. I personally prefer the smaller size because of its portability—I typically travel with just my purse on me. However, if you’d rather not pay the full price for an Android tablet but are still looking for something that’s stylish and powerful, there’s plenty of original Tab S tablets on sale that are still worth bringing home.

Samsung hasn’t just crafted a worthy successor to the Galaxy Tab S, but one of the best big-screen tablets out there. It’s thin, light, gorgeous-looking and well-balanced, and while the screen has fewer pixels than its predecessor’s it’s still fantastic with a more practical aspect ratio. So if you’re after a tablet that can double as an Android laptop, the Xperia Z4 slips ahead. But if you’re looking for a versatile, big-screen Android tablet first-and-foremost, then stop right here. With a design that’s built for the hand rather than the desktop, the Tab S2 is the one to buy.

There's no doubt the Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 is an impressive tablet. It's slim, light and has a generally excellent screen, as long as you're willing to put up with a slight yellow tint for the sake of excellent contrast. However, it sits in an odd position in the tablet market. It's the same price as the iPad Air 2, which has superior performance, if worse battery life, and is up to £200 more than the price-yoyoing Google Nexus 9, which isn't as nice an object but has stronger performance.

Samsung has worked obsessively to make the Galaxy Tab S2 9.7 the thinnest and lightest slate in its class and has succeeded. We expect the device’s dimensions to be its defining feature and for a good reason - the Tab S2 9.7 breaks the rules about how a full size tablet should handle. The chipset found in the device raised a few eyebrows, as it isn’t the most powerful solution available at the moment. It is however, a massive improvement over the SoC found in the tablet’s predecessor.

Although we've only had hands-on time with the Galaxy Tab S2 it's clear to see that it's a great tablet – even if it has suddenly matched the iPad on screen size, aspect ratio and resolution. The S2 wins on dimensions but it's so close that this is really just bragging rights and both tablets have top-notch specs. Aside from the choice between iOS and Android storage and price are the big differences here with that potentially deal breaking Micro-SD card slot found on Samsung's tablet only.

As with the Note 4 and the latest Galaxy S flagships, the Tab S2 boasts a metal frame with a chamfered edge in place of what was previously an all-plastic body, making for a sturdier, more premium feel in the hand. It also helps give the tablet its exceptionally shallow depth (an insane 5.3mm), ensuring it’s great for those after a device they can slot in a bag without it being too bulky.

After spending close to a week with the Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 9.7, one thing's certain - this tablet is an excellent choice for those who want to travel light. Samsung has reduced the weight and size of the new tablet without compromising on build or rigidity, which is commendable. The 4:3 aspect ratio makes it comfortable to hold when reading or watching videos. At Rs 39,400 it's also cheaper than a similarly specced Google Nexus 9 or Apple iPad Air 2. Samsung has the edge over the other two when it comes to expandable storage and the ability to make voice calls.

Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 SM-T825

The Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 SM-T825 is a tablet that is good-looking, fast and has a gorgeous screen. Like most Samsung devices, it uses the AMOLED technology, which allows for much richer colors, deeper blacks and a more immersive screen for bingeing on media. This is particularly good news for users of streaming services like Netflix and Amazon Video. The tablet packs the same 2048 x 1536 resolution as the Tab S2, but it’s now HDR-enabled. HDR (high dynamic range) gives much greater peak brightness, with blacks appearing deeper and more natural as a result. The Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 is a bit thicker compared to its predecessor, but still extremely slim at just 6 mm. The glass rear is very susceptible to fingerprints but looks nice when it is clean. The Tab S3 is very sturdy, despite its slim construction and the build quality was very good. The small camera bump on the rear protects the lens. The capacitive touchscreen of the Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 4. It provides very good gliding capabilities and is both responsive as well as precise. The display supports inputs via Samsung's S Pen, which was developed in cooperation with Wacom. It is also compatible with other Samsung devices. It does not have to be charged and is secure and comfortable in the hand with a diameter of 9.4 mm. However, it cannot be stored inside the case anymore. The Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 inside the Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 is not the latest high-end SoC anymore, but the performance is still good. The graphics adapter Adreno 530 shares the designation with the GPU from the 821, but the clocks are slightly lower. The components are rounded off by 4 GB of RAM. As for the rear camera, it’s got a 13 MP sensor, a lens with a f/1.9 aperture and a flash. The media experience is made even better thanks to four speakers. There are two on the bottom and two on the top, and they’re tuned by the audio gurus at AKG. They’re decent speakers, with plenty of volume and the positioning means noise will come out in all directions. To further enhance the gaming experience of the tablet, the Galaxy Game Launcher has been optimised for the Galaxy Tab S3 (LTE) and includes an energy-saving mode as well as the possibility to turn off notifications in the game. With the breathtaking graphics performance of the Vulkan API, there is nothing to prevent a persistent game play. As for the battery, the Tab S3 has a slightly conservative 6000 mAh cell inside. Samsung has included one of its USB-C adaptive fast chargers in the box, and it charges the tablet in around two hours – about half the time it takes to fully charge an iPad.

One for everything. It has been quite a while since Samsung has upgraded its premium tablet. We were therefore eager to see how the new device, which is equipped with a lot of features and even the S Pen, performs. The tablet can convince in our review, but Samsung cannot keep its premium promise in all areas.

The Tab S3 is a tablet and stylus combo that wants to satisfy all your needs, from entertainment to sketching and writing notes. When used for simple notes and sketching, the S Pen is generally great. Our only major grips are around the difference in responsiveness of the S Pen in various apps, the lack of bass and that the touch-sensitive button that opens the app switcher is irritatingly easy to knock. But overall, the Galaxy Tab S3 is an excellent tablet that really looks the part. It's a worthy competitor to the 9.7-inch iPad Pro, one of our best tablets.

But it feels like Samsung is pushing the limits of Android on a tablet too far here. The software is unfinished and the multitasking capabilities are buggy and limited. I can forgive Android apps lacking the polish of their iOS counterparts when I’m paying £300 or less for a tablet, but when this is the same price as an iPad Pro, it’s harder to stomach.

Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 Review
Source: Fone Arena English
The Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 is indeed the best premium tablet in the Android platform as of now, giving a tough competition to its arch rival Apple’s iPad. This slate has an amazing build quality, good overall performance, decent camera and much improved S-Pen. But on the other side, its pricing is a huge let down as it costs you a bomb, in addition you have to purchase the Keyboard Cover at Rs. 8499. Overall performance is good, but it is hard to recommend it considering the price. If it was priced 10 to 15K lesser, then it would have been bang for the buck.

The Galaxy Tab S3 is no doubt a great entertainment device. It get many things right, especially when it comes to consuming content. For example, the 9.7-inch display is simply the best I’ve ever seen on a tablet. I also really like the implementation of the S Pen; and yes, it comes in the box, so you won’t have to pay extra to get it. The overall performance and the quality of sound from the quad speakers is okay, if not the best.

Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 review: Great hardware in a dying form factor
Source: Soycincau English
Lenovo’s solution isn’t any bulkier than a traditional tablet nor is it any more difficult to use in the same way as a traditional tablet. It is, however, a lot more practical than a traditional tablet because it comes with a fully functional keyboard attached and it has the ability to run full Windows 10. I firmly believe that that is the future for the tablet and that makes it very hard for the Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 to be anything more than a reminder of the past.

To sum up, the Galaxy Tab S3 is trendy, slim and powerful and has a lot to offer and on papers, it sure looks promising. The tablet comes loaded with some premium design coupled with a compact look, though the specifications are pretty much standard across this price range. So if you are planning to buy a tablet/hybrid tablet for a long time, this could be the tablet for yours. But do remember you have to spend some extra bucks for its keypad cover.

The Galaxy Tab S3 has proven itself to be a powerful tablet for work and play. If you like watching videos on-the-go or at the comforts of your home, this device won’t disappoint. The S Pen feature is also a strong point but you’ll have to be a digital artist or someone who regularly takes handwritten notes to fully take advantage of its features. It can also turn into a sort of substitute for a laptop using the pogo keyboard cover. However, it’s not included in the package and is sold separately.

Overall, the Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 is an excellent device for 2K resolution gaming, movie watching and exploring the full S-Pen experience. At RM2999 it is priced equal compared to other tablets within this range but getting the RM499 keyboard cover makes it all a bit pricey. Especially since you can get the less powerful Microsoft Surface Pro 4 for about the same price tag or lower. However, if you’re an Android and S-Pen stylus fan, then the Galaxy Tab S3 is the better choice.

More important to potential buyers is the front-facing camera for video chats. Here, Samsung has gone with an adequate 5MP camera with a f/2.2 aperture. As expected, its low-light performance leave something to be desired – just don’t log in to video conference meetings from dim restaurants. What we do like is that the Tab S3 borrows the improved camera interface of the recalled Samsung Galaxy Note 7. Flipping between the two cameras is done with a swipe up or down directly on the screen (much better than trying to find the tiny camera switch button). Menus are one swipe to the left, and effects are one swipe to the right.

Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 Review

After spending the past few weeks with Samsung’s latest tablet I have grown to using it more. Based on its portability, decent battery life and quick charging. Display is still some of the best out there but would love to see HDR supported by apps to really push its full potential. Optional keyboard is nice for doing work but can be crammed for some and also doesn’t magnetically close. Included S-Pen is a nice touch and awesome to use but wish it had a built-in slot or magnet for the Tab S3 . The Galaxy Tab S3 is realistically a great media consumption powerhouse and is great for viewing content. One plus over say the iPad Pro or even Pixel C is that the Tab S3 has expandable storage pushing it to 256GB. That’s a lot of movies. That $600 price tag is a bit hard to swallow though.

The Galaxy Tab S3 has a promising list of features, including its HDR-friendly screen, quad-speaker array, included S Pen and powerful processor. And they mostly work as touted. Its colorful and sharp display, coupled with loud audio, makes for satisfying multimedia consumption. It’s also a responsive machine, thanks to its Snapdragon 820 chipset, and lasts more than 11 hours on a charge. The new S Pen enables smooth drawing, thanks to its finer nib and improved pressure sensitivity. But the Tab S3 and its companion keyboard, which costs an extra $130, aren’t good enough for intensive typing and multitasking. If you can stomach the $600 price and don’t need to do serious work on the Tab S3, you’ll find it satisfying.

Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 review roundup: ‘Wow, that’s a lot of money’

The high price of the S3 also puts it head-to-head with some excellent Windows offerings that have the advantage of running full desktop productivity software. However, if you aren’t budget-conscious and are set on Android, the stunning screen and integrated stylus functionality may be worth the extra money. Personally, I’m really torn. I rely heavily on my Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 (2014 Edition), and would love to update it to something that ran a modern OS and had better performance. But it works okay, stores its S Pen internally, and is long since paid for. So shelling out $600+ to get a new version that isn’t perfect still seems like a stretch. For those ready to spring for the Tab S3, it’s expected to be available starting March 24th.

The Galaxy Tab S3 marks a crossroad for Samsung, since the tablet landscape has shifted significantly over the last few years. When you also look at what it has to compete against nowadays, it can potentially be overlooked – due to the kind of value it brings to the table with its cost. Apple’s iPad Pro is still widely regarded as the king in the tablet market, but Samsung manages to undercut its rival with the Tab S3’s starting price of $600 with 32 GB of internal storage, which of course can be supplemented with a microSD card. And that price includes the S Pen! Whereas with the iPad Pro, it’s an additional $100 for the Apple Pencil. So when it comes to price, Samsung definitely has the advantage.

The Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 looks to be a very nice tablet indeed, but then the Tab S2 was great as well. The key factor will be the price, and we don’t know what that is just yet.

Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 hands-on
Source: GSM Arena English
The main problem with tablets has always been one of practicality. The idea of a large real estate touchscreen device is unquestionably cool, but most people still don't quite see a use case for a laptop and smartphone middle ground, so to say. Concepts like 2-in-1 and powerful input accessories, like the S Pen definitely help in filling that intrinsic void and are a clear effort for placing products like the Tab S3 closer to laptop productivity territory.

70% Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 Review
Source: NDTV Gadgets English
The Galaxy Tab S3 is light and easy to carry around, and could be a fun travel companion or a way to get some work done. It's much less expensive than a 10.5-inch iPad Pro with cellular data plus an Apple Pencil, but the iOS ecosystem is still more tablet-friendly. Plus, the usage experience is more polished overall with an iPad. You'll be happy with the Galaxy Tab S3 if it's a secondary or even tertiary device, and there are a number of people who can afford that kind of indulgence. If you don't need a stylus, the non-Pro iPad (2017) could serve well too.

75% Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 review: When your greatest strength is also your biggest weakness
Source: India Today English
The Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 is quite evenly matched with Apple's iPad Pro (2017) in almost all the departments. The only area where the iPad Pro really stands out and makes a strong case for itself over the Galaxy Tab S3 is the camera because essentially it crams in the same credentials as the iPhone 7. That is, if you're looking to take photos with your tablet. If you're looking to click reference photos and probably video call someone, the cameras on-board the Galaxy Tab S3 should get the job done. So far, so good. Question is, will that be enough?
