Reviews for the Samsung Galaxy Tab S8+ 5G

88% Samsung Galaxy Tab S8+ (Plus): 5G Tablet with Large OLED Display and 5 Years of Updates | Notebookcheck
Samsung's latest alternative to Apple's iPad Pro 12.9 is the Galaxy Tab S8 Plus, a premium tablet with a brand-new Armor aluminum case, a very large Super AMOLED display, and a Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 SoC to lure in potential iPad customers. Will its high price be its downfall?
Samsung Galaxy Tab S8+ Review

Samsung’s 2022 lineup of high end Android tablets, now include 3 sizes: the 11” Tab S8, the 12.4” Tab S8+ and the new Tab S8 Ultra with a 14.6” OLED display. We look at the middle model with a 120Hz OLED 12.4” display, Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 processor, S Pen in the box and an optional $160 slim keyboard cover that’s the perfect companion to Samsung DeX. The Tab S8+ has Wi-Fi 6E, Bluetooth, haptics, quad stereo AKG speakers, a microSD card slot and optional 5G. Given the lack of high end Android tablet competition, it competes mostly with the Apple iPad Pro models.

Samsung Galaxy S22 / Tab S8 Series Hands-On - Welcome Back!!

It's February 9th, 2022 and as expected, today is the first of probably a few Samsung Galaxy Unpacked events. Virtual, I know.. Can't wait for us to get back to the in-person events, but the company was nice enough to give us an early preview of everything that got announced today, and well.. It's a lot. I'm Jaime Rivera with Pocketnow, and let's just dive in.

Hands on: Samsung Galaxy Tab S8 and Tab S8 Plus review
Source: Techradar English
The Samsung Galaxy Tab S8 and Tab S8 Plus are among the company’s latest choices for top-end tablets and were revealed alongside the Galaxy S22, Galaxy S22 Ultra and the new Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra. The standard Tab S8 products that we’re reviewing are the cheapest members of the new tablet family that also includes that larger screen Tab S8 Ultra. Both these tablets are remarkably similar, so we’ve combined our coverage of each into one hands-on review. Now that we’ve had some time with the Samsung Galaxy Tab S8 and Tab S8 Plus here’s everything we’ve learned so far about the tablets, along with our first thoughts of how each runs and what you can expect if you buy one. The Samsung Galaxy Tab S8 and Tab S8 Plus are remarkably limited upgrades compared to 2020’s Galaxy Tab S7 and Tab S7 Plus. If you’re after an Android tablet, this will likely be a top choice for 2022 – we’ll know at the time of full review - but it isn’t worth upgrading from Samsung’s last release.

We’ll need more hands-on time with the Tab S8 Plus to be able to deliver our full verdict on whether or not it is the ideal tablet for you. However, based on our experience so far, the superb screen is likely to satisfy most customers; whether the camera system and the battery life hold up to scrutiny will be discovered after more thorough testing.

Samsung Galaxy Tab S8 and Tab S8 Plus hands-on review: big and bigger
Source: Stuff TV English
Samsung’s out for iPad blood, with the Tab S8 and S8 Plus taking on the iPad Pro 11 and 12.9. The pluckiest move from Samsung is probably announcing one of iPad OS’s most loved apps, LumaFusion for its Tabs. It’s been no secret that Android tablets just haven’t been able to compete with iPads when it comes to apps and interface, so this could mark the beginning of a two-horse race – finally.

Qualcomm Adreno 730: Graphics chip for smartphones and tablets that is integrated within the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 SoC. Qualcomm claims that it is 30% faster than the Adreno 660 in the Snapdragon 888 SoC. For Android it should be one of the fastest graphics cards in late 2021.

Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.

SD 8 Gen 1: High-end SoC for smartphones that was introduced in late 2021 and manufactured in 4 nm at Samsung.

Furthermore, four energy saving cores are integrated that are based on the ARM Cortex-A510 architecture and clock at up to 1.8 GHz. In addition to the processor cores, the SoC integrates a WiFi 6e modem, a Hexagon DSP (for AI acceleration) and a Spectra ISP. The integrated memory controller supports fast LPDDR5 memory with up to 3,200 MHz. 5G is now included in the chip with the Snapdragon X65 modem.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


This screen diagoal is quite large for tablets but small for subnotebooks. Some convertibles are also represented with that size.

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.

» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.

This weight is typical for small tablets.
