90.7% Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 Tablet Review | Notebookcheck
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.
Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 Review – A better option to iPad Pro?
Source: Manila Shaker English
As I’ve mentioned, this was planned, built, and announced with the intention of going head-to-head with the iPad Pro 10.5. Priced at P37,990, it definitely holds up on its own against Apple’s new contender.

Can the Galaxy Tab S3 replace your everyday computing needs?
Source: Phandroid English
All-in-all, if you’re looking to replace your everyday computer for tasks such as word processing and the like, the Galaxy Tab S3 will be just fine. If you’re looking for something to sketch or draw on, the Tab S3 would also be suitable for that too. However, when it comes to image editing and things like that, you might be better off sticking with your current computer and use the Tab S3 for other things.

Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 First Impressions
Source: The Mobile Indian English
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.

If you invest yourself and spend the time needed, you could probably solve the tablet riddle in regard to your own life. You could figure out how to make a machine like the Tab S3 work for you on a daily basis, to a degree that you’re satisfied with. And, if you buy the S3 and spend the $700-plus, or nearly $600 with current discounts, you had better solve that riddle to warrant the purchase.

If you want a 10″ Android tablet, this is the best option currently out there. It’s not perfect, though. It’s expensive, its physical and capacitive keys are awkward, and it’s loaded with too many Samsung apps, but aside from that, it’s a solid choice.

Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 review - Slim and powerful 9.7-inch Android slate with an S-Pen
Source: Tech Nave English
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.

Samsung designed the Galaxy Tab S3 to be a premium, high-end Android tablet with plenty of bells and whistles. As one might expect, these features do come at a price. However, if you’re in the market for a premium tablet that offers a fair bit more functionality than the average slate, the Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 is a best-in-class option worthy of consideration.

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.

90% Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 review: this portable powerhouse is a glass-backed doozy
Source: T3 English
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.

There's no doubt the Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 is the best Android tablet to be launched in years. If you're looking for a high-end device to rival the iPad Pro running Google's software then this is it. However, it's not without downsides. The price will be too high for many and doesn't include the Keyboard Cover, the software isn't the best for a tablet and that glass back isn't the best choice for multiple reasons.

Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 Review
Source: G Style Magazine English
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.

Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 review: The next great Android tablet

The Galaxy Tab S3 is malleable enough that you could utilize it for working, gaming, reading, binge-watching, and almost everything else your little laptop can do. The only issue you might have is that Android itself is still figuring out multitasking, and even with the Tab S3's native multi-window functionality, I'd much rather have the freedom of a desktop to spread out my work than be confined to a finicky task switcher.

80% The Galaxy Tab S3 is good, but not $600 good
Source: Engadget English
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.

That all leaves the Tab S3 in a pretty awkward position. It’s a good tablet, but the iPad Pro is a slightly better one, particularly thanks to its app ecosystem.

Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 review roundup: ‘Wow, that’s a lot of money’
Source: Extreme Tech English
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.

We're happy to see Samsung launch a new high-end Android tablet. Apart from Google's Pixel C (which launched near the end of 2015), the market has been dominated of late by midrange and low-end models that, while they can be good values and perform fine, don't bring a whole lot in the way of excitement or innovation. And while Apple's iPad Pro is nice, those looking for a productivity-focused Android alternative should have options with fresh hardware and features.

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.

Comment

Model: 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.

The screen diagonal is used for small tablets.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.
