The Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 is the perfect alternative to the iPad. It has great performance for content creation and content consumption, the back cover ensures you can prop it at various angles adding to the ergonomics and the battery life is in line with what tablets offer these days. There are a few ergonomic niggles, and the standard slew of Android hiccups, but if you don't want to go for the iPad Pro, this is the best from the world of Android.

Hands on: Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 review
Source: Techradar English
The Galaxy Tab S6 is a faster, slimmer upgrade with a handier stylus – but its quality-of-life improvements might not be groundbreaking enough to unseat the iPad Pro as the king of professional tablets. Still, if you liked its predecessor, the new device is worth sizing up as a powerful work device.
