Samsung Galaxy Tab S8 5G review: Maximum performance in 11-inch format

Claim to leadership. Samsung aims to leave the competition in the dust with its new premium tablet Galaxy Tab S8 5G. A case out of Armor Aluminum, a high-end Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 SoC, a 120 Hz screen, and the Samsung S Pen are just a few of the hardware ingredients that the manufacturer offers. We put the Galaxy Tab S8 5G through its paces in the following review.

Samsung promises more productivity and creativity in everyday life with its Galaxy Tab S8 series. Buyers can choose between the 14.6-inch flagship Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra and the 12.4-inch Galaxy Tab S8+. The third tablet in the group is the Galaxy Tab S8, which has the most practical form factor with its 11-inch screen.

Like its sister models, the Galaxy Tab S8 also comes with Samsung's S Pen, the fast Snapdragon 8 Gen 1, and is offered in a Wi-Fi and a 5G version. We took a closer look at the 5G version, which is priced at just under 900 Euros in the smallest storage configuration (128 GB) in Samsung's online store. The 256 GB variant costs 950 Euros, while the Wi-Fi version is 150 Euros cheaper.

Note for international readers: The Galaxy Tab S8 is also available in other countries in various configurations at various prices (see "Price and Availability" at the end of this review for examples).

Case: High quality chassis out of aluminium and glass

Samsung's smallest Galaxy Tab S8 tablet makes an excellent impression in terms of look and feel with its even gaps, a "notch-less" webcam (as it is integrated directly into the frame) and the physical buttons that are firmly seated in the chassis.

Excluding the SIM slot and the side buttons, the chassis is made of Armor Aluminum, which not only gives the tablet a low weight of 507 grams, but also makes it scratch-resistant. If you wanted to, you could bend the tablet without too much effort, but it is more than sturdy enough for everyday use. This sturdiness also applies to the front of the Galaxy Tab S8 5G, which is protected by Gorilla Glass Victus+. The tablet is available in three color options: Graphite, Silver and Pink Gold.

The included Samsung S Pen attaches magnetically to both the top frame (next to the physical buttons) and the back. An area directly below the camera on the back cover for this purpose. The S Pen is also charged wirelessly there. No IP certification for protection against water and dust is provided.

Connectivity: Samsung S Pen and quad speakers

The Samsung Galaxy Tab S8 5G comes with an extensive set of features. This includes quad speakers with Dolby Atmos, a USB-C port with USB 3.2 Gen.1 speed, and the option to expand the internal storage with a microSD card of up to 1TB. In addition to all common microSD file formats, the tablet also supports the exFAT file format and can thus save files larger than 4GB. Wired image output is also possible via USB.

The Samsung delivers on its promise of productivity and creativity in more ways than one, with the S Pen stylus being the most obvious option. Another feature enables users to connect a Galaxy Book Cover Keyboard to the lower case side, which docks there magnetically. Screen sharing works via Miracast and is activated in the quick settings bar with the Smart View option. Furthermore, there is the second screen feature, which allows the tablet to function as a second screen for a Windows PC.

microSD Card Reader

When benchmarked with our Angelbird V60 reference card (read rate up to 280 MB/s, write rate up to 160 MB/s), the Samsung Galaxy Tab S8 achieves solid transfer rates that very much correspond to those of the Galaxy Tab S8+.

Software: 5 years of security updates and Samsung DeX

Samsung is focusing on longevity for the Galaxy Tab S8 5G, promising up to four generations of Android OS upgrades as well as five years of security updates. No other manufacturer currently offers more in the field of Android devices.

The Galaxy Tab S8 5G runs Android 12 and Samsung's user interface OneUI in version 4.1. DeX, also known as "Desktop eXperience", provides users with a second user interface. It resembles Windows in terms of layout and operation and almost functions like a desktop OS when used with the S Pen and the optional Samsung Book Cover. The tablet can receive content from other compatible Samsung Galaxy devices via the Samsung Smart Switch.

At the time of testing (mid-May), the Android security updates were from May 2022 and therefore up to date. Another layer of security comes in the form of the Samsung Knox Vault platform, which protects sensitive data such as passwords from cyber attacks.

Communication and GNSS: 5G, WiFi 6E and Bluetooth 5.2

Samsung's Galaxy Tab S8 5G uses WiFi 6E just like the more expensive Galaxy Tab S8+ and Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra, a feature which is currently the major exception in the tablet sector. In combination with a WiFi 6E-capable router, such as the Asus ROG Rapture GT-AXE11000, it achieved very fast transfer rates under testing, peaking at 1802 Mbps. Data transfer remained just as stable in the WiFi 6 network and still achieved solid rates of more than 800 Mbit/s.

The 5G version of the Samsung Galaxy Tab S8 covers a wide frequency range with five 3G bands, 19 4G bands and 13 5G bands, so there should hardly be any reception issues. The tablet also supports Bluetooth 5.2, but not NFC.

Samsung's Galaxy Tab S8 5G uses satellite navigation services ranging from GPS (B1), Glonass (B1), Beidou (B1, B1C), Galileo (B1) to QZSS to determine its location. Under testing, the tablet determined its current position with an accuracy of 3 meters both indoors and outdoors, and localization functioned very quickly in both cases.

The tablet also provides accurate navigation data in practical use, as our short bike tour shows. Samsung's Galaxy Tab S8 5G tracks the almost 10-kilometer route almost as accurately as the Garmin Venu 2.

Cameras: Good dual camera with 13 MP

Photo with the main camera
Photo with the main camera

The selfie camera of the Galaxy Tab S8 5G has a resolution of 12 MP, delivers very solid image quality in daylight, and is therefore also well suited for video chats supported by auto-framing. In portrait mode, the selfie camera works with a bokeh effect. Unfortunately, the edges of the face are not displayed too sharply, so that there is no clear separation between the subject and the background

On the back is a dual camera consisting of a 13 MP wide-angle sensor with F2.0 aperture and a 6 MP ultra-wide-angle sensor (F2.2). In daylight, the main camera takes attractive photos that are rich and crisp in detail. In the photo lab, grayscale and colors are captured fairly accurately. Even with little residual light, the pictures produced are still detailed. The same cannot be said of other tablets, such as the Xiaomi Pad 5, which perform much worse here. The quality of the ultra-wide-angle camera lags a little behind that of the main camera, as peripheral areas are quite blurred and noisy.

Both the selfie camera and the main camera record videos at a maximum of 4K UHD at 30 frames per second, while the ultra-wide-angle camera is limited to FullHD at 30 FPS. Unlike the front camera, the rear dual camera works with video stabilization and delivers decent image quality. However, users cannot switch between the lenses during recording.

Accessories & Warranty: The 45-watt power supply costs extra

Upon purchase, Samsung Galaxy Tab S8 5G comes with the Samsung S Pen, a USB cable (Type C to Type C), a SIM tool as well as a quick-start guide and warranty information. Further accessories such as book covers, headphones and smartwatches can be purchased in Samsung's store. The matching 45-watt power supply adapter is also offered there for around 50 Euros.

In Germany, the Samsung Galaxy Tab S8 5G comes with a two-year warranty. Samsung also offers extended protection against damage and theft with its Care+ package, the costs of which may differ from region to region.

Input devices & Operation: Fingerprint sensor in the function key

Samsung's Galaxy Tab S8 5G implements inputs swiftly and precisely, regardless of whether they are made directly on the display or via the S Pen. Thanks to its adaptive refresh rate of up to 120 Hz, the tablet displays content very smoothly, giving the impression that it is not even remotely challenged by any task under testing.

The S Pen recognizes 4096 pressure levels, thus allowing for very precise writing and drawing. To create notes or sketches, you can tap the small pen icon on the right edge of the display and then start the note app. The pen menu can also be used to take screenshots and to furnish these with text. At the same time, it also functions as a quick launch bar because you can add other apps to the list.

The fingerprint sensor of the Galaxy Tab S8 5G is located in the Bixby or function key and unlocks the tablet reliably. Biometric authentication is also available via 2D face recognition, which also has a fast response time.

Display: Sharp and color accurate TFT screen

Subpixel grid
Subpixel grid

If we take pixel density as a benchmark, the Galaxy Tab S8 5G displays content on its 2560x1600 TFT screen at 274 PPI, which is sharper than the Galaxy Tab S8+ (266 PPI) and the Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra (239 PPI). It is also brighter than the comparison device average of 536 cd/m². A blue light filter can be enabled in the display settings for additional ease of use.

With evenly distributed bright and dark image areas (APL18), the TFT screen achieves a maximum luminance of 552 cd/m², remaining at 467 cd/m² with the brightness sensor disabled. At the lowest brightness setting, the display still shines with 6.78 cd/m² (5.38 cd/m² if extra dimming is enabled in the input settings). We did notice display flickering under testing, but this only occurs when the brightness is set to 2% or lower, so it should not be an issue in practice.

Screen Flickering / PWM (Pulse-Width Modulation)

To dim the screen, some notebooks will simply cycle the backlight on and off in rapid succession - a method called Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) . This cycling frequency should ideally be undetectable to the human eye. If said frequency is too low, users with sensitive eyes may experience strain or headaches or even notice the flickering altogether.
Screen flickering / PWM detected 62870 Hz ≤ 2 % brightness setting

The display backlight flickers at 62870 Hz (Likely utilizing PWM) Flickering detected at a brightness setting of 2 % and below. There should be no flickering or PWM above this brightness setting.

The frequency of 62870 Hz is quite high, so most users sensitive to PWM should not notice any flickering.

In comparison: 52 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 19959 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 3846000) Hz was measured.

The preset image modes "Vivid" and "Natural" can be selected in the display settings. The latter provides the most accurate color reproduction, even though it only covers the smaller sRGB color space instead of the DCI-P3 color space. Color fidelity in "Natural" image mode with a maximum Delta-E of 1.4 falls into the ideal range, as well as color temperature and RGB balance.

Display Response Times

Display response times show how fast the screen is able to change from one color to the next. Slow response times can lead to afterimages and can cause moving objects to appear blurry (ghosting). Gamers of fast-paced 3D titles should pay special attention to fast response times.
       Response Time Black to White
10.56 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 6.499 ms rise
↘ 14.63 ms fall
The screen shows good response rates in our tests, but may be too slow for competitive gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.4 (minimum) to 240 (maximum) ms. » 18 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (23.1 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey
47.17 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 21.14 ms rise
↘ 26.03 ms fall
The screen shows slow response rates in our tests and will be unsatisfactory for gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.25 (minimum) to 636 (maximum) ms. » 76 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is worse than the average of all tested devices (36.5 ms).

Samsung's Galaxy Tab S8 5G performs well outdoors. But it is best to use the tablet in shade to see content without difficulty due to insufficient brightness.

Performance: Samsung tablet with Snapdragon 8 Gen 1

Samsung's Galaxy Tab S8 5G is equipped with the fastest Android SoC, the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 and its Adreno 730 GPU. The tablet thus sails through our benchmark measurements with ease. In the synthetic benchmarks, it is almost always at the forefront, scoring 927000 points in AnTuTu v9 for example. However, like all other tablets with Snapdragon 8 Gen 1, it is forced to concede defeat to the Apple iPad Air 5 2022 and its Apple M1. The AI calculations are also not very good for the Android SoC, as can be seen in its AImark scores.

Gaming: Strong gaming platform

The Snapdragon 8 Gen 1, four speakers and the 120 Hz screen make the Galaxy Tab S8 5G a powerful gaming machine. The test games, whose frame rates we determined with the Gamebench tool, all ran wonderfully smoothly and were accompanied by strong surround sound.

However, the tablet cannot fully take advantage of the 120 Hz screen in gaming. More than 60 frames per second were not possible in Armajet and PUBG Mobile (graphics settings HD/High). The Galaxy Tab S8+ and the Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra occasionally achieve significantly higher FPS numbers here.

Emissions: Powerful surround sound

Temperature

In operation, the Galaxy Tab S8 5G stays well below the 30 °C mark even under constant load and is thus never uncomfortably warm. Because a Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 is used in the tablet, throttling is virtually inevitable. Then again, the throttling that occurs under load is not quite as pronounced as in many smartphones equipped with the same SoC thanks to the larger case. Moreover, as there is still so much residual power to draw from, users do not notice the throttling under normal use.

Speakers

There are a total of four Dolby Atmos speakers on the two narrow sides of the Galaxy Tab S8 5G, which can play up to a loud 89.4 dB(A) and produce powerful sound with very balanced mids and trebles. Although the bass tones are lacking somewhat, they are still much more pronounced in the sound mix than in many other tablets.

Since the Galaxy Tab S8 5G lacks a 3.5mm jack, wired audio devices such as headsets have to be connected via a USB-C adapter, which Samsung does not include with its tablet. The Bluetooth audio codecs AAC, aptX, LDAC and SBC are available for audio output via Bluetooth 5.2, which is a somewhat sparse selection.

Energy Management: The Galaxy Tab S8 with the best battery life

Power Consumption

The smallest tablet from Samsung's Galaxy Tab S8 lineup also has the smallest battery: a 8000 mAh battery that can be charged with a maximum of 45 watts. The corresponding power adapter is only available for a surcharge and costs around 50 Euros in Samsung's web store (prices may vary slightly in the currencies of other regions).

The Galaxy Tab S8 5G is restrained in terms of power consumption. In contrast to the comparison devices, it consumes noticeably less power, especially when idling, and is thus much more balanced.
