Reviews for the Samsung Galaxy Tab S9 5G

90.9% Samsung Galaxy Tab S9 5G tablet review: Powerful all-rounder with OLED | Notebookcheck
Samsung has only carefully redesigned the Galaxy Tab S9 5G compared to its predecessor. New features include the most powerful Snapdragon on the market and a switch to OLED technology for the display. The Tab S9 still comes with an S-Pen and can handle both work and play. How does it compare to the tablet elite?

Samsung Galaxy Tab S9 series tablets, which include the S9, S9+ and S9 Ultra, are up for pre-orders from 26 July 2023 onwards. They officially go on sale on 11 August 2023, starting from S$1,128 (Tab S9, 128GB, Wi-Fi only), and going up to S$1,888 (Tab S9 Ultra, 256GB, 5G version).

The Samsung Galaxy Tab S9 is awfully similar to last year's model, but the AMOLED upgrade sets it apart and makes watching movies and playing games a delight. You pay for it with worse battery life, though, and this Android tablet still can't match Apple's slates in terms of speed.

80% Samsung Galaxy Tab S9 review: An Android tablet in a league of its own
Source: Expert Reviews English
As a premium 11in Android tablet, the Samsung Galaxy S9 is pretty much in a field of its own. No one else is making tablets like this right now, with its unique combination of power, premium design, and a beautiful AMOLED display. Of course, Apple’s iPad range needs to be acknowledged here, as the equivalent iPad Pro continues to reign supreme. It’s more powerful and has much better software support than Samsung’s tablet. Even so, the Galaxy S9 puts up a great fight and wins out in some significant ways. It’s £100 cheaper, is properly water and dust-resistant, has a more vibrant AMOLED display and comes with a brilliant stylus as part of the package. If you’re not invested in the Apple ecosystem, and you’re after a powerful and flexible tablet that’s ready for sketching and note-taking right out of the box, there’s no better 11in option out there than the Galaxy Tab S9.

It may not look that different from its predecessor on the surface, but a host of upgrades to display tech, processing power and even water resistance make the Galaxy Tab S9 one of the most capable Android tablets on the market, and unlike the more premium S9 Plus and S9 Ultra, it remains relatively compact.

100% Samsung Galaxy Tab S9 review: One of the best Android tablets money can buy
Source: Pocket Lint English
The Galaxy Tab S9 gets practically everything right. A premium, portable, sturdy design, an absolutely delightful screen, performance in spades, all-day battery life, and seriously impressive sound. The only thing that makes me hesitate automatically recommending it to everyone, is its price. Starting at $799/£799, there is definitely no shortage of cheaper Android tablets out there. If you're just looking for a non-Apple tablet to watch films, play some games, and shoot some emails while browsing the web, I reckon you could save yourself a few hundred pounds with a cheaper option, like the OnePlus Pad or even the older Tab S8. For those who want iPad-like quality (and don't want to dive into the Apple ecosystem), then I have no hesitation in recommending the Galaxy Tab S9, even over its more expensive S9+ and S9 Ultra siblings.

Source: Tom's Guide English
I felt the Samsung Galaxy Tab S8 set a new standard for Android tablets in 2022, and now the Samsung Galaxy Tab S9 has upgraded that standard in the best way possible: By upgrading the display. As much as I wish the Galaxy Tab S9 was more powerful and more power-efficient given that Samsung is asking $100 more for it than last year's model, I can't complain about the company's decision to upgrade the display because the move to AMOLED makes everything you do on the Samsung Galaxy Tab S9 look better than it did on last year's model. Of course, you are now paying upwards of $800 for the privilege of owning one. If that feels a bit too steep I think you can still get a lot of use out of a new Galaxy Tab S8, which has a worse screen but lasts longer and costs $100 less (or more) new. Apple's 2022 iPad Air is also a great alternative if you don't mind iPadOS, since it costs less than a new Galaxy Tab S9 yet delivers better performance, better cameras and access to Apple's App Store.

90% Samsung Galaxy Tab S9 Plus Review
Source: Trusted Reviews English
It is very difficult, at any budget, to find a tablet that can do ‘everything’, meaning one that works just as well as a couch companion as it does as a work slate. It’s a pleasure then to report that the Samsung Galaxy Tab S9 Plus comes pretty close to being that ideal, and a lot closer than much of the Android competition. With a slim and svelte design, it is comfortable to hold, its display is genuinely a treat to use and its speakers are loud and incredibly clear. The custom Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 processor inside is powerful, and the battery life is always enough to make it through a full day. If you are in the market for a premium tablet, this should be in your sights. There are drawbacks, of course.

Source: Tech Advisor English
This tablet offers modest mid-range cameras. A 13Mp main camera on the back and a 12Mp wide-angle camera on the front are what’s offered in this basic model. They are primarily intended for documentation, AR and video calls rather than for photography on par with a Galaxy S23 mobile phone. The battery is slightly smaller in the Tab S9, at 8400mAh. If you choose the S9 Plus model instead, you get 10800 mAh. You can use the tablet all day, at least if you don’t use heavy games or productivity apps to any great extent. Charging speedily should be possible with up to 45W of USB charging. You’ll have to get your own charger, though, because it’s not included. I was only allowed to borrow a 25W charger so I have not been able to test even faster charging. Using this, an empty battery takes about 1.5 hours to fully charge.

80% Samsung Galaxy Tab S9 review: Should you buy it?
Source: Android Authority English
All versions of the Tab S9 have the latest Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 for Samsung, which is clocked a touch higher than non-Samsung versions of the chip. Some Samsung phones throttle too heavily when they heat up, but the company’s tablets have a lot more thermal headroom. The Tab S9 only loses a little speed when it warms up, making it a good option for gaming, though peak performance for multitasking and professional design work is not remotely comparable to the Apple M-series iPads. The Galaxy Tab S9 starts at $799.99 with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage. A version with 12GB of RAM and 256GB of storage is available for $920, but we suggest you stick with the base model.

80% Samsung Galaxy Tab S9 family review: easier choices
Source: The Verge English
Compared to last year’s Tab S8 lineup, there are two tangible upgrades in the S9s: a new Qualcomm processor that promises to be a little faster (though speed and performance were never really issues in last year’s tablets), and IP68 water and dust resistance, just like most modern smartphones. That means you can use these tablets around a pool or bathtub, or more likely, you just won’t have to worry about life’s little mishaps at the coffee shop or when a toddler surprises you with their range when throwing a sippy bottle. I don’t know of any other non-rugged tablets that have this kind of water resistance — Android, iPad, or otherwise — so it’s a legitimate differentiator for Samsung’s models and a nice thing to have.

86% Samsung Galaxy Tab S9 Review: Tablet nirvana
Source: Phone Arena English
The Galaxy Tab S9 addresses all weak points of the Galaxy Tab S8 and builds multiple floors upon the existing foundation. You get a compact and wicked-powerful Android tablet with a very beautiful screen and a functional S Pen as part of the package, with plenty of storage, and a very functional interface with some serious multi-tasking capabilities. Surely, not all is perfect: I'd have loved richer sound, a slightly better camera, and last but not least, a decent haptic feedback, but those are minor gripes in the greater context of what makes a tablet better than average. Yes, the Galaxy Tab S9 is definitely a super-decent Android slate that should be considered by just about anyone who's even remotely considering of getting a tablet in 2023. At $800, it's not an affordable slate, but Samsung makes it easy to save with the multitude of deals and promotions is usually hosts, so it's worth checking out this compact powerhouse.

80% Samsung Galaxy Tab S9 review: Premium, powerful, pricey
Source: Android Police English
The market is awash with dozens of affordable Android tablets, but if you're after something in the high-end space, Samsung remains one of the few options available. If an 11" iPad Pro competitor is something you're dying for, I think the Galaxy Tab S9 is it. The screen looks great, it's thin and light with great battery life, and has plenty of accessories that'll let you build it out into the ultra-portable laptop replacement you've always dreamed of owning. But I'd really consider what you're going to use this tablet for before dropping $800 on one. Can you learn to live with an LCD panel? Do you need a bundled S Pen? Are you going to be frustrated if your accessories don't last longer than one generation, despite how much you've paid for them?

Well, none of that nonsense exists with the Samsung Galaxy Tab S9 series. Materially, the three tablets are all premium-tier Android tablets that want to be the Apple iPad Pro for Android users. They are nearly identical in terms of components and parts quality, only differing in display size, battery size, and weight. If you’re really nitpicky, the regular Tab S9 comes with 8GB RAM, while the Tab S9+ and Tab S9 Ultra offer 12B RAM. But you’re not getting any ‘less’ if you pick the Galaxy Tab S9 over the Galaxy Tab S9 Ultra now.

Source: Android Authority English
Of course, if you already know that a nearly 15-inch display is too much real estate, you’ll probably be much happier with the Galaxy Tab S9 or S9 Plus. I think the smallest 11-inch slate is my personal sweet spot. It’s large enough for an immersive Netflix experience yet small enough to slip in and out of a backpack throughout a long day of travel. Factor in the larger speakers, upgraded connectivity options, and improved display, and you can leave your laptop in your carry-on. At the end of the day, however, the question is whether or not you should spend the money to upgrade to one of Samsung’s Galaxy Tab S9 models. As always, it depends on which tablet you’re coming from.

Samsung Galaxy Tab S9 hands-on: Your next premium Android tablet?
Source: Pocket Lint English
The Samsung Galaxy Tab S9 is the smallest and therefore most affordable of Samsung's 2023 premium tablets. It brings with it the quality expected from this grade of device, with what appears to be a great display and I'm sure that the Snapdragon hardware in this tablet will deliver a slick and fast Android experience. Much of that experience will be defined by the software and previous editions of this tablet have been popular and well received. I expect the same thing of the Samsung Galaxy Tab S9 - and I'll deliver a full verdict on this tablet once I've had the chance to fully review it.

Hands on: Samsung Galaxy Tab S9 and Tab S9 Plus review
Source: Techradar English
Samsung unveiled the Samsung Galaxy Tab S9 series at Samsung Unpacked 2023, with the standard Tab S9 and S9 Plus arriving alongside the Tab S9 Ultra (head over to our Samsung Galaxy Tab S9 Ultra review for an early look at that device, as well as our Samsung Galaxy Tab S9 pre-orders page for the best deals live now). We’ve already seen both the Tab S9 and S9 Plus in person, but we haven’t spent enough time with either tablet to come to a full verdict on their pros and cons just yet. Mind you, the upgrades on offer here are clear: for the Tab S9, you’re getting a brighter screen, a faster processor, a slightly bigger battery, more RAM options and an IP68 water resistance rating. For the larger Plus model, the improvements are mostly the same, though instead of a battery size increase and display upgrade, Samsung has included a beefier ultra-wide sensor on the rear of the tablet. The Tab S9 Plus is available in 512GB storage options, too.

Samsung Galaxy Tab S9 hands-on review
Source: Tom's Guide English
It’s great to see the Samsung Galaxy Tab S9 get an OLED display and a faster chipset than its predecessors. Because of those improvements, it feels more like a premium product — only for hundreds of dollars less than its bigger siblings. Thanks to its sturdy build, slim design and sharp and vibrant display, the Galaxy Tab S9 could potentially be one of the best tablets of 2023. We felt the Galaxy Tab S8 set a new standard for Android tablets when it launched last year, and perhaps that standard will be shattered when the Tab S9 hits store shelves. We’ll find out soon when we get a chance to review the Samsung Galaxy Tab S9, so check back to find out!

The Galaxy Tab S9 is a sleek tablet in looks and performance – at least after spending a short amount of time with the device. The tablet makes some sacrifices to fit its £799 RRP, including packing fewer cameras, lower RAM and storage and a smaller battery than the other tablets in the new S series. However, the same bright screen, flagship chipset and magnetic S-Pen make the S9 seem like an excellent choice for anyone in need of a smaller tablet to stream content, browse the web and scribble down notes on the go.

Galaxy Z Fold5, Z Flip5, Watch6, Tab S9 hands-on review
Source: GSM Arena English
Samsung's next-gen foldables are now here - the Galaxy Z Fold5 and Z Flip5 arrive with improved hinges, display tweaks, and the mandatory internal upgrades. Also new are a trio of Galaxy Tab S9 tablets and two Galaxy Watch6 models (or four, depending on how you count). An eventful Unpacked once again, then. Perhaps the biggest change in the new foldables is they now fold with no gap between the two halves - no more wedge. Samsung had been putting off a gapless design for several generations, making the bendy Galaxies appear dated and prototype-like next to a crowd of better-looking offerings from pretty much any other company that's taken a crack at foldables. This changes with generation 5.

Samsung Galaxy Tab S9, S9 Plus and S9 Ultra hands-on review: Everything you need to know
Source: Expert Reviews English
It’s taken Samsung a while to update its premium tablet range, but with most of the changes fairly minor in nature, this generation doesn’t look like one to get particularly excited about. Dust and water resistance are nice but less essential for a tablet than a phone. And while it’s great that the entry-level model now has an OLED screen, that’s probably something it ought to have had in the previous generation anyway. Plus, those prices do look rather high, with the Tab S9 starting at £799, the S9 Plus at £999 and the Tab S9 Ultra at £1,199. Still, it’s too early to deliver a definitive verdict, so we’ll be holding back from doing so until we get our hands on review samples. If you can’t wait for that, however, all three tablets will be up on the Samsung website for pre-order from Wednesday, 26 July, and on sale officially from Friday, 11 August.

You get a compact and wicked-powerful Android tablet with a very beautiful screen and a functional S Pen as part of the package. While it's too early to draw any conclusions as we haven’t run our benchmark tests on the Galaxy Tab S9, it seems that it is shaping up to be more than an excellent follow-up to the Galaxy Tab S8. Here's to hoping that it will be another successful release that will vastly improve the Samsung tablet scene and elevate it to new heights, deservedly so.

Model:

The latest to join the Samsung family is none other than the Samsung Galaxy Tab S9. Despite arriving eighteen months after Samsung's last high-end tablet, the Galaxy Tab S9 does not seem to have changed much as compared to its predecessor. In terms of its design, Samsung by far has been the only brand which keeps the same core look and feel for years at a time. This applies to this tablet too. The Galaxy Tab S9's camera bump and S Pen holder has been moved just enough to fit awkwardly in previous keyboard docks, and considering the price point these are going for, the least Samsung could do is try to ensure the user gets their money's worth across multiple generations. Whether one is coming from an older Galaxy Tab model or considering picking up one of Samsung's high-end tablets for the first time, the display is the main draw on the Tab S9. The 11" AMOLED display here is exactly as good as one would expect. Colours are definitely vibrant and poppy, if not particularly accurate, especially out of the box. Whether watching an unboxing on YouTube or binging through whatever series Netflix just premiered, everything looks fantastic with this display. Samsung definitely deserves a credit for it. It is also worth mentioning that the display comes in with 2560x1600 pixel resolution. This is also paired with high refresh rate of 120Hz.

 

There is always a mixed feeling when it comes to 16:10 displays on tablets. This is all due to the fact that this aspect ratio does not particularly excel at anything as nearly any video that one watches will still be letterboxed, scrolling through web pages in portrait mode feels awkward, and the screen itself is not big enough to benefit from the extra vertical space the way a 16:10 laptop can. Therefore, it might turn out as a drawback for some users. As part of the aforementioned camera redesign, Samsung has decided to ditch the 6MP ultra-wide lens this time around, going with a seemingly-identical 13MP f/2.0 wide lens with autofocus support. Despite the minor camera bump, the tablet is large enough to avoid rocking back and forth on a desk. This sensor allows for decent shots, provided there is enough light. In terms of its performance, this model has been equipped with the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 paired with either 8GB or 12GB of RAM. The device comes in two colours namely beige and graphite. As far as its battery is concerned, Samsung Galaxy Tab S9 has been equipped with 8,400mAh battery. In addition, this device also supports 45W fast-charging. Overall, this is a great device to be explored by users, depending on their individual need and preference.

Qualcomm Adreno 740: Graphics chip for smartphones and tablets that is integrated within the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 SoC. Qualcomm claims that it is 25% faster than the Adreno 730 in the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 and first benchmarks show that the GPU can beat the Apple A16 iGPU (previously the fastest smartphone GPU). 

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

SD 8 Gen 2 for Galaxy: High-end SoC for smartphones that was introduced in late 2022 with a fast prime core based on a ARM Cortex-X3 architecture clocked at up to 3.36 GHz. Two more performance cores are based on the A715 and also support only 64 bit applications. The two additional A710 cores support also 32 bit applications as do the power saving Cortex-A510 cores. In addition to the processor cores, the SoC integrates a WiFi 7 modem, a Hexagon DSP (for AI acceleration) and a Spectra ISP. The integrated memory controller supports fast LPDDR5x memory with up to 4,200 MHz. 5G is included in the chip with the Snapdragon X70 modem. Compared to the normal SD 8 Gen 2, the "for Galaxy" version offers a 160 MHz higher clocked prime core.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.

This is a standard display format for tablet computers or small convertibles. You see more on the screen than on a smartphone but you can't use big resolutions well. On the other hand, mobility is not a problem.
