Reviews for the Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 SM-T860

80% Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 review: The best Android tablet of 2019
Source: Pocket Lint English
The best Android tablet around, this impressive device has better speakers and display contrast than Apple's iPads, plus there's a fancy under-screen fingerprint scanner. Problem is, it's really rather expensive when you compare it to an iPad Pro. But if Android is your thing and you want best-of-best then the Tab S6 is the choice.

79% Galaxy Tab S6 review: Can Samsung’s best tablet out-work the iPad?
Source: Android Authority English
Samsung's Galaxy Tab S6 is the best Android tablet to reach the market, but it's not necessarily for everyone. This professional-grade slate supports the S Pen, Samsung's DeX productivity user interface, and a custom keyboard that connects via pogo pins rather than Bluetooth. All this screams "I can work!" The Tab S6 is surely good in a pinch, but power users may be more productive on a full PC.

60% Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 Review: Master Entertainer, Amateur Worker
Source: The Verge English
The Tab S6 is an excellent content consumption tablet. It has a great screen and speakers, and it’s thin and light enough to hold for extended watching sessions. It even has enough battery life to last through at least three Marvel movies. On the flip side, Samsung’s attempts to make the Tab S6 a productivity device fall short, there are a number of annoying bugs in the software, and it’s not a great enough device to replace your laptop.

Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 10.5 Review – Best Android Tablet, Substandard Laptop
Source: Ausdroid English
Samsung’s flagship Android tablet wants to be an entertainment powerhouse as well as your primary laptop so lets compare it to a leading Windows 10 tablet like the Microsoft Surface Pro 6.

90% Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 review: The best Android tablet ever
Source: Android Central English
I am not a tablet person and I admit that up front. I use my phone for quick things like finding a good place to eat or messaging my friends and family but for the heavier lifting, I use my Chromebook because it's a better "desktop" class experience. Having said that, the Tab S6 has warmed me up just a little bit. Maybe not $650 worth, but it's shown me that sometimes a 10-inch screen without the bulk of a keyboard folded over or the untameable weight of the 13-inch Pixel Slate can be a good thing.

85% Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 (2019) review
Source: Good Gear Guide English
The Galaxy Tab S6 gets almost everything right about the hardware side of the Android tablet experience. In action, the screen is gorgeous, the design is tight, the S-Pen is charming and the battery life is nothing short of decadent. I just wish Samsung would be willing to put a little more muscle behind the areas where the gulf between the experience that the Tab S6 and iPad give you diverge most noticeably. DeX continues to become better and better and a version of this product that pushes that further is still something I’d like to see. The Galaxy Tab S6 is Samsung’s best tablet but it rarely tries to come across as anything but yet another tablet. I’d like to see that change.

77% Galaxy Tab S6 review: Good notepad, bad notebook
Source: Engadget English
With its kickstand, keyboard and wannabe desktop interface, the Tab S6 is Samsung's latest attempt at mimicking Microsoft's Surface tablets. Sure, Samsung could have just done that by making another Windows hybrid, but it feels like the company knew Android would be a better match for the S Pen's newfound capabilities. And, once again, it is the comfortable, smooth stylus that sets the Tab series apart. Those who like taking notes by hand and want an attractive, lightweight, powerful device that lasts ages will appreciate the Tab S6. Android (not to mention Dex) may feel limited for anyone looking to get real work done, but if you don't need to do much more than edit a few documents or slideshows on the go while staying in touch with your colleagues, the Tab S6 will do just fine.

Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 review: The top Android tablet of 2019
Source: Sam Mobile English
Other than that, the Galaxy Tab S6 really is the top Android tablet of 2019. One may say that this is by virtue of non-existent competition in this segment, but Samsung hasn’t been slacking off. The Galaxy Tab S6 is well-made, feels exceptionally premium in the hands, has the latest internal specs and a superb display. It can most certainly justify its $650 price tag for the right customer.

The Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 is a highly accomplished Android tablet. It's great for media and almost as good for productivity. It's expensive, but still cheaper than its main rival - the iPad Pro. However, it's also not quite as good as Apple's Pro range.

The Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 is the best Android tablet. That sounds a grand statement until you realise hardly anyone makes them anymore – all of Amazon’s are budget buys and its biggest rival is Samsung’s own Galaxy Tab S5e.

Samsung has given us one of the best iPad alternatives, and at a time when Android tablets are losing steam. The Galaxy Tab S6 is a sleek tablet with a gorgeous 10.5-inch display and fast performance. Unlike the iPad, the Galaxy Tab S6 comes with a stylus, which can now be charged in a magnetic groove on the back of the Tab S6. Samsung also improved the Tab S6's other main accessory -- the detachable keyboard -- giving it a touchpad and a DeX shortcut key.

The Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 is a brilliant Android tablet. But should you buy it over an iPad Pro, iPad Air or Galaxy Tab S5e? That’s a tricky one. The iPad Pro is more expensive, but the iPad Air isn’t even when you factor in the cost of the Apple Pencil. And the cheaper Tab S5e has several of this model’s highlights, including a great screen, high-end design and support for DeX. Still, if you don’t like Apple or its iPads, it’s hard to conclude anything other than this is the best tablet choice for those with a good chunk of cash to spend.

This is a typical display size for tablets and small convertibles.

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.

This is pretty heavy for a smartphone. Usually, small tablets weigh as much.
