84% Samsung Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra Review – The Best Android Tablet of 2022 is here early

The Samsung Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra leads the pack with its massive and luscious display, innovative DeX interface, bundled Book Cover keyboard case, portable design and superb performance – this is easily the most powerful Android tablet for 2022 though such versatility and performance does not come cheap.

90% Samsung Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra Review: The Biggest Android Tablet
Source: NDTV Gadgets English
The Samsung Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra is the biggest and most powerful Android tablet that you can buy at the moment. The Book Cover Keyboard case (which needs to be bought separately) makes it way more versatile. If you own a Samsung smartphone, you will get a few ecosystem benefits. This tablet will appeal to digital artists and graphics designers who could benefit from the S Pen stylus, and that might justify its high cost. For users who want a tablet for media consumption and don't mind splurging, the Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra could be worth considering as well. However, I'm of the opinion that it would be overkill for such use cases, in terms of both size and cost. This is the perfect example of how good Android tablets can get, but it has a very niche appeal. The Samsung Galaxy Tab S8+ offers the same hardware in a more manageable size, and that would be my recommendation to most people. Those open to alternatives can consider the 12.9-inch Apple iPad Pro instead.

Review – Samsung Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra: Larger than my laptop
Source: NLT English
So, in conclusion, for the price of RM5,899 – yes that is the price of this tablet, and it is definitely a super hefty price. This product is definitely not for everyone – mainly because of the size and the price. I’d have to say – for those who just want a large device mainly for gaming or watching shows on the go but are still able to whip our a document and email side-by-side and do work, then the Samsung Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra is pretty much the jack-of-all-trades that you’re looking for. Plus, being able to draw with the S Pen is a huge boon that I think many people will want. That kickstand accessory is definitely one of the best kickstands I’ve used so far, and it just works very well – and that keyboard is also magnificent to type on. Spending this much on a premium tablet might be questionable for some but I am not here to tell you how to spend your money. This review is to let you know more in-depth details about the tablet before purchasing. But before we end the review – here’s one last weight measurement with the tablet, kickstand, and the Book Cover Keyboard together.

But still, should you buy the Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra if you want the best Android tablet available right now? The most versatile Android experience? And the answer is certainly yes – if you're a diehard Android user, you'll probably love this tablet, and there's no other like it. Just be sure that you really want a huge tablet, and set your expectations accordingly. Because for most users, much cheaper tablets like the Tab S6 Lite can offer the same essentials.

70% Samsung Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra review
Source: Tech Advisor English
The Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra is, from a pure hardware perspective, almost certainly the best Android tablet around. Excellent performance is matched by a slender design that keeps the whole package as lightweight and comfortable as possible given the colossal display. The question is who the S8 Ultra is for. Great as that display is for watching TV and film, this is surely too expensive a device for most to pick up for media streaming or Android gaming. And while it’s a capable work device, once you throw in the keyboard case the calibre of laptop alternatives improves drastically, most of which will still be better work machines thanks to the software limitations endemic to Android on tablets. Of course, the real edge here is versatility. No cheaper tablets will match the S8 Ultra’s productivity prowess, and none of the laptops can compete as media devices. For the Tab S8 Ultra to make sense as a purchase, you’ll probably need to want to use it for both of these – or at least know for sure that you’ll make use of the tablet form factor as often as you will the laptop mode.

Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra - You think you know... but do you?

Tablets have always been a 'Of course that will break' situation. But... the only way to find out for sure if the Tab S8 Ultra from Samsung is durable is to actually durability test it. Today we will be performing the normal Scratch, burn and of course Bend tests on Samsungs Ultra tablet, so we can compare it to Apples iPad Pro. Should be very very interesting.

Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra review: Big, beautiful and probably not for you
Source: Sam Mobile English
The Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra is the embodiment of what a luxurious and powerful Android tablet should be. However, you just can’t get the complete experience of all that it has to offer without the keyboard cover. The keyboard and the trackpad elevate the user experience to a whole new level, but it comes at an added cost, $349 to be precise. Let’s not forget that prices for the Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra start at $1,099. So buying it with the keyboard cover puts you firmly in laptop territory. You can easily buy a full-fledged laptop with the latest specs for even less than that. So it begs the question, why buy the Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra then? There are plenty of workflows where the Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra will fit in nicely, particularly for those in creative endeavors. This could work as a laptop replacement if all that you need to use is available on the Android ecosystem but at this price, you can easily get a proper laptop and a more affordable tablet with some money still left over.

Samsung Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra Review - Are We THERE Yet?
Source: Pocketnow English
This is the Samsung Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra, and make no mistake, this product does NOT intend to be your tablet. I've always considered those to be more of a companion device that's not trying to replace your computer. Most are easy to carry, creating that sort of notepad feel, which only gets augmented by stylus input. Sure, you can use it for some productivity, but usually they're more consumption tools that can help you be creative.

60% Samsung Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra Review: When Bigger Isn’T Better
Source: The Verge English
Ultimately, the Tab S8 Ultra is a tablet that’s the size of a laptop, mimics a laptop’s form factor (especially when paired with its keyboard case), and comes with the price tag of a laptop. But it’s far from as capable as a laptop that is more comfortable to use and easier to be productive with. Still, as a tech demo, the Tab S8 Ultra is an interesting thing, and it’s possible that Samsung will continue iterating on this idea of an oversized tablet in future generations, much like it has done with the Galaxy Fold line of phones. For now, it’s best to wait this out.

Samsung Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra First Look and Unboxing Malaysia – Huge tablet with plenty of goodies
Source: Hitech Century English
For Malaysia, there’s only one RAM/storage configuration and colour choice available for the Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra. In terms of hardware, our Samsung Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra retail sample for the Malaysia market is armed for bear. You get the latest Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 processor running under the hood, 12GB RAM and 256GB of expandable storage via a microSD card slot. In case that flew by a bit too fast, the Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra has a slot for a microSD card slot that allows you to augment the memory with a card up to 1TB in size while the same can’t be said for some competing tablets which also cost more to boot. Under the hood, the tablet runs the latest Android 12 with Samsung’s own One UI 4.1 user interface running under the hood. While the Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra can run like a traditional Android tablet, it has the impressive ability to offer a desktop-style mode called DeX straight off the display. While Samsung’s flagship phones do have a DeX mode, it’s only available if paired with a monitor; the Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra allows you to do it straight off its 14.6-inch display.

100% Samsung Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra review: brilliant but niche
Source: Stuff TV English
The Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra is both excellent and niche. It’s too big to read books on but perfect for magazines or chunky textbooks. It’s a bit clumsy to watch a movie on it hand-held, but prop it up, and it’s the best tablet for big-screened blockbusters money can buy. Touch-screen games won’t be the best unless you’ve got giant fingers but hook up a controller and you’ll lose yourself with PlayStation Remote Play, Steam Link or a 3D Android game. The tablet’s speakers are excellent, its screen is mesmerising and the fact it also ships with an S Pen means it’s an impressive note-taking tool. Add to the mix Samsung’s DeX, and the most expensive Android tablet on the scene is also the most fully featured, and the best for watching on. With the only strike against it being good, not great brightness, the Tab S8 Ultra is still a top-quality tablet that’s easy to recommend to a power-user who wants the finest slate Samsung’s released to date.

The Samsung Galaxy Tab S8 series could be the ultimate laptop replacement you needed
Source: Tech Nave English
So, what do you think of the Samsung Galaxy Tab S8 series? In our opinion, the large 14.6-inch Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra (RM5,899) is your best bet if you want an alternative to a Windows laptop. If you're fine with a smaller screen, the Galaxy Tab S8 (RM3,299) could be a better deal. However, since all of them weigh well below 800gm and are 5.5mm to 6.3mm thin, all of them are super portable and easy to carry about. If you're interested, it's even better that Samsung is now holding a promotion till 31 March 2022. During this period, you get to enjoy freebies worth up to RM1,887* when purchasing a Samsung Galaxy Tab S8 series tablet! Not only do you get a free Book Cover Keyboard and S Pen worth RM1738 (already included in the box), but also a Neoprene Pouch worth RM149. In addition, you can get also get 30% off on a Samsung Care+ 1 year protection plan (worth up to RM330).

90% Samsung Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra review: Undoubtedly overpowered
Source: Android Central English
Samsung positions the Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra as a potential laptop replacement thanks to DeX mode and that beautiful screen. Chances are, it's even lighter than your laptop while sporting a big enough screen to enjoy work and games. But Android tablets are still in a weird spot, and the Keyboard Cover is just plain expensive.

Source: The Indian Express English
How productive or creative can you be on the move? Very productive, I would say, as someone who has been writing and editing stories on the phone for years and prefers an iPad on short trips over my MacBook. But what is the equivalent of an iPad for Android users? Well, that is not such a straight forward answer because of Google’s unconvincing stand when it comes to tablets. But if there has been one brand pushing the cause of the Android tablet, it has been Samsung. Now, Samsung has come up with its latest flagship tablet, the Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra 5G. Here is my review after using this tablet giant for well over a week.

Source: Gadgets Now English
Samsung Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra comes with a starting price tag of Rs 1,08,999. The flagship Android tablet from Samsung packs all the features that one would want from a high-end device. The support for S Pen and the Book cover keyboard act as an added advantage. The tablet is also a good option for those who want one single device for work and play. Samsung Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra does come with a hefty price tag but you also get a powerful processor, sleek design, bright display and good quality camera setup. The Samsung Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra is a good option for people who want a portable convertible device that is high on performance.

80% Samsung Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra review: a sleek, supersized slate designed for professionals
Source: 91mobiles English
If you’d like to use the Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra as a tablet and for drawing etc, you’ll need to shell out Rs 1,08,999 for the Wi-Fi only variant and Rs 1,22,999 if you want 5G. The keyboard cover helps squeeze out its full potential though, and that’ll cost you another Rs 22,999. All in all, we’re talking big money here. Given its big size and big sticker price, it’s clear that the device might not appeal to everyone. The keyboard cover does app more productivity-focused use cases, but the fact is that the Tab S8 Ultra can’t really replace a laptop, given Android’s limitations as a desktop OS. The lack of a built-in kickstand and average battery life are small concerns too. That said, the Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra is a supersized slate that offers a gorgeous display, a useful S Pen and tons of handy features, making it a powerful tool in your arsenal, especially if you’re a creative professional.

80% Samsung Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra review — this is big
Source: Tom's Guide English
The Tab S8 Ultra is an impressive machine, but its size and price will be a barrier for some people. Being an Android fan (yes, we exist!), I was stoked to get my hands on the Tab S8 Ultra. While I appreciate its size and power, it’s made me question whether bigger is always better. After all, tablets are supposed to be relatively portable devices. The Tab S8 Ultra isn’t hard to carry around, but it’s also not as discreet as an iPad Air. While the large OLED screen makes content look amazing, that same size is also a hindrance. I also have to question Samsung’s claim that the Tab S8 Ultra can replace your laptop. While it can certainly mimic the laptop experience, proper laptops are simply more responsive and performant. Android OS isn’t as terrible as some say, but it’s not topping Windows or macOS anytime soon.

100% Samsung Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra review: this tablet is a beauty with a big screen
Source: T3 English
To cut a long story short, the Samsung Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra is a seriously cool piece of kit, and it could replace a laptop if you buy the optional keyboard. For anyone who needs as much screen space as possible - like for working on or if you're a creator - this is about the best and biggest tablet there is. Despite the fact that it’s so slim and light, it’s still not going to be that easy to carry around with you because it's not that bag-friendly. If that’s something you can get over then everything about this tablet is top-tier. The screen is stunning, the front cameras are better than you’d find elsewhere and it comes with the S Pen included in the box. There’s still room for improvement because it’s not as fast as the Apple iPad Pro, and the battery life could be longer, but it’s still better than most other tablets out there. If you already own Samsung tech then choosing a tablet from the Galaxy Tab S8 series is a no-brainer because all of their devices work really well together.

Samsung Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra Review: The single best device for both work and play
Source: XDA Developers English
This laptop is just all-around amazing. It’s got a beautiful 90Hz OLED display, AMD Ryzen 5000 power, and it all comes in a package that weighs in at under two and a half pounds. The biggest downside is the HD webcam. If you’re on a lot of video calls, you’re going to feel that. Also, that beautiful display sure uses a good amount of battery. Still, the IdeaPad Slim 7 Carbon is so easy to fall in love with. I think the Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra fits into a specific niche — a single device for both tablet entertainment activities and getting real work done. I love that not only can I switch between the two seamlessly, but I can also often mix the two — I’ll have a word document opened while I have a YouTube video playing in the corner of the screen. Or I’ll be in a Zoom call while I’m actively scrolling through Instagram at the same time. With the Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra, I can mix work and play. And for me, it’s worth the $1,100 — particularly with the keyboard case included free of charge.

With my limited hands-on time , I wasn’t able to check out all these features (things like Duo and the second-screen for Windows weren’t available, either). So we’ll need to get these devices in our hands for more in-depth testing to know if a Samsung-meets-Google version of Android on a 14.6-inch tablet will make a good laptop substitute. If you’re already sure you want a Tab S8, you can pre-order them today. The S8 starts at $700, the S8+ at $900 and the Ultra at $1,100, and those who pre-order will get free keyboard cases thrown in. But as always, I’d suggest waiting until we can do a full review before spending hundreds of dollars on an Android tablet.

Hands on: Samsung Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra review
Source: Techradar English
The Samsung Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra is a tablet that’s as big as your average laptop, and that alone is likely enough to inspire excitement in some people and confusion in others. Samsung’s line of tablets is often considered the Android ecosystem’s alternative to iPad Pros, but the Ultra sails past even the 12.9-inch iPad in terms of size, as its display is 14.6 inches across. In other words, it’s huge. How big is too big? Well, that depends on how you like to use a tablet. We imagine some people will find the Tab S8 Ultra way too big to be practical, but others might appreciate its massive amounts of display real estate. That’s why the size is listed both in the pros and cons list of this initial review. The Samsung Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra’s key selling point is either a positive or a negative depending on how you look at it. Beyond that it’s a super-powerful, but equally expensive, Android tablet.

Samsung Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra hands-on: This tablet is a beast
Source: Tom's Guide English
The Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra does something that most Android tablets fail to do: grab your attention. This thing sucks you in with its mammoth 14.6-inch display, and the optional keyboard turns the Tab S8 Ultra into one of the thinnest and lightest laptops around. Samsung deserves credit for catering to professionals who crave better video and audio quality during video calls, and we're hopeful that the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chip will be able to keep up with Samsung's multitasking software chops. Still, $1,099 is a lot of money for an Android tablet, and Google and Samsung have never been able to close the app quality gap with iPadOS. We look forward to fully testing the Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra to see just how versatile and practical this supersized slate is.

Hands on: Samsung Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra Review
Source: Trusted Reviews English
With the Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra Samsung has crafted an absolutely massive, tech-filled tablet that I am sure will likely be misunderstood. With a 14.6-inch display, the Tab S8 Ultra is one of the biggest consumer tablets around. It’s bigger than the iPad Pro and it’s probably bigger than your laptop too. That makes it a very niche proposition for many. It’s also a noticeable step up on its more traditionally sized siblings, the Galaxy Tab S8 and Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra. For me, I think this size is what makes this slate interesting and while I don’t doubt it’ll be lamented for being ‘too big’ the fact is that I have been hankering for an iPad Pro with a screen this size for a long time. Of course, a big screen like this comes with a very big price tag. The base price here is £999 for Wi-Fi, 128GB storage and 8GB RAM. Pay £1149 and you can add 5G support. If you’re after more storage and more RAM, then you can pay £1249 (Wi-FI) and £1399 (5G) for 512GB and 16GB RAM.

Samsung Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra initial review: Large and in charge?
Source: Pocket Lint English
If you're after a tablet with a huge screen - perhaps to consider as a laptop replacement using accessories - then they don't really come bigger than the Tab S8 Ultra. This slate is clearly designed for more than just watching stuff - the inclusion of the S Pen stylus and top-tier Qualcomm hardware confirm this - and if that's your intention then, well, we suspect this option might be simply a bit too big.

Samsung Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra hands-on review: biggest and boldest
Source: Stuff TV English
While most people will buy the Tab S8 or S8 Plus, it’s the Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra that’s pushing the envelope in the same ways the original Samsung Galaxy Note did way back in 2011. Back then, its 5.3-inch screen was shameful – a true mark of a geek who opted for specs over sanity. Now, you’ll be hard-pressed to find a phone with a screen as small as 5.3 inches. So, yes – the Tab S8 Ultra is expensive, it’s unwieldy when held in one hand, and to be honest, we’re not exactly sure how we’d use it just yet. But we’re excited for what it stands for, and the fact Samsung’s loaded it up with great design, a stunning screen and stacks of power only adds to what’s already a unique proposition.

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. Integrates one “Prime Core” based on a ARM Cortex-X2 architecture clocked at up to 3 GHz. Three more performance cores are based on the A710 but clock up to 2.5 GHz. 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.
