Samsung Galaxy Tab S review

 

If you're after a tablet with an impossibly great screen...this is it

Excellent screen ; Plenty of power ; Good battery life

Still behind on design ; Small on-board storage ; Bundled apps uninspiring

Ratings in depth Update: Android 5.0 Lollipop has been making waves with the 'Material Design' UI overhaul. When will Lollipop make its way to the Samsung Galaxy Tab S? Find out here.

Samsung Galaxy Tab S 8.4 review

 

It seems that not a month goes by without a new Samsung tablet surfacing. It's made the market so busy with options that, frankly, it's got downright confusing. So let's cut to the skinny: the Tab S, seen here in its 8.4-inch version, is one of the...

Bright and resolute display, lots of power, plenty of useful software tweaks, slim design

Oversaturated colours, cheap-looking plastic rear, software can be over the top

There's a lot of good to say about the Samsung Galaxy Tab S 8.4. So much that it irks us just how many other Tab devices are available through the range, because it muddies the water.

Nokia N1 vs Samsung Galaxy Tab S 8.4 tablet comparison

 

The £319 model Samsung Galaxy Tab S 8.4 comes with Wi-Fi only: if you want 4G connectivity as well, you'll be looking at £399 inc VAT. The Galaxy Tab S 8.4 is widely available in the UK.

It's impossible to be sure before the Nokia N1 launches and we get to grips with it in our lab, but from the specs we would say that it is a worthy challenger to the Tab S 8.4. The Samsung Tab is powerful, fully featured, and well priced. If you want...

Nexus 9 vs Samsung Galaxy Tab S 8.4 comparison review

 

Google has launched the Nexus 9 with some help from HTC but how does it stand up to Samsung's impressive Galaxy Tab S 8.4? Find out in our Nexus 9 vs Samsung Galaxy Tab S 8.4 comparison review. Also see: The best tablets of 2014.

This is a close call as the Nexus 9 and Galaxy Tab S 8.4 both have pros and cons. If you don't mind spending more, then Google's tablet has better performance and battery life but is chunkier. Samsung's isn't as slick but is impressively svelte and has...

Samsung Galaxy Tab S 8.4 review

 

UPDATE: It's still a great Android tablet, but the new, low price for the iPad Mini 2 makes the Samsung Galaxy Tab S 8.4 look rather pricey

Stonkingly good screen ; Magazine UI has really come into its own ; Easy to hold, solid build

The iPad Mini 2 is now much cheaper ; Some UI lag ; Google Play apps aren’t tablet optimised

This light, bright Super AMOLED star is one of the best small Android tabs out there

The Samsung Galaxy Tab S 8.4 is one of the best Android tablets we've ever reviewed. In terms of hardware it's the best you can buy right now and has a superbly thin and light design. There's very little to dislike here aside from some elements of the...

Samsung Galaxy Tab S review

 

The best from Samsung so far, but we need more in the audio and video stakes

Nice design Bright, vivid screen Deep blacks High-res audio capable Good battery life

Finger scanner still a little awkward Audio and picture quality don’t beat the best

The Galaxy Tab S 8.4 is the best tablet we’ve seen from Samsung, and it’s up there as one of the best Android tablets we’ve tested too. The nearly year-old iPad mini with Retina display still outperforms it in both audio and picture quality (though it...
