Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro S W700N Tablet 2-in-1 Review

 

Super AMOLED style. The Samsung Galaxy TabPro S is a smart 12-inch tablet that comes with a usable keyboard good battery life and an impressive screen.

stylish, compact design, good keyboard included, fast SSD, good cameras, impressive screen, great battery life

screen can be a power drain at times, one USB-C port for data and charging, some CPU throttling under heavy load

The AMOLED screen on the Galaxy TabPro S is the key feature here. It's bright and punchy and if you're careful you can get impressive efficiency from it. Style plays a big role too.

Samsung Galaxy Pro review

 

In a world of smartphones with ever-increasing screen sizes and disappearing physical keyboards, the candybar form factor is becoming rarer and rarer.

Battery life gets through the day ; Thin, compact device ; Good call quality

Confusing physical keyboard layout ; Small, low resolution screen ; Poor camera quality

Review: Samsung Epic 4G

 

Just say "no" to be being an iClone. Get a device with an open OS, lightning fast data connectivity and a network that won't drop...

Glorious display — extremely bright and crisp. Feature-laden; literally lacking nothing that a state-of-the-art handset ought to have

Battery life is substandard. Keyboard is too flat for easy typing

Samsung Epic 4G

 

Editor's Note: The Epic 4G's score has been adjusted since the original review as it has not yet received the Android 2.2 Froyo update. We'll adjust the score once it receives the update.

The standout of the Galaxy S phones, the Epic 4G offers some enticing features like a physical keyboard, front-facing camera and 4G network support.

Epic 4G review

 

Of the seemingly countless variants of the Galaxy S that Samsung's in the process of deploying around the globe, one stands out in a couple very unique (and important) ways: Sprint's Epic 4G. The Epic hangs on to a couple of the Galaxy line's most...

Amazing display ; Fast -- both the processor and the data ; Solid camera performance

Keyboard could be better ; Samsung's UI customizations are an annoyance ; 50 more than EVO is a tough sell

Samsung Epic 4G

 

A fantastic keyboard, 4G data capability, and a jaw-dropping display make this Android phone worth the premium.

With the arrival of the Samsung Epic 4G, Sprint now has the best one-two smart phone punch of any carrier. The Evo 4G is great for those who don't need a physical keybord and want perks like HDMI output and a built-in kickstand. It also has a more...

Samsung Epic 4G (Sprint) review:

 

Editors' note, August 18, 2010 : Upon further analysis, we have upgraded the rating of the Samsung Epic 4G to 8.7.

The Samsung Epic 4G has a knockout Super AMOLED display, a 1GHz processor, a front-facing camera, an impressive QWERTY keyboard, a 5.0-megapixel camera with an LED flash, and supports Sprint's 4G WiMax network. It is capable of acting as a mobile Wi-Fi...

The Samsung Epic 4G is the bulkiest of the Galaxy S phones and also the priciest. It also requires a costly data plan.

The Samsung Epic 4G is a multimedia powerhouse with features the other Galaxy S phones don't have. Unfortunately, it comes with a big price tag.

Samsung Epic 4G (Sprint)

 

Almost passive-aggressively, Samsung seems to have sabotaged the four important touch buttons below the screen. When they're not lit up, they disappear and become impossible to press; you have to tap on the screen to light them up while you're in the...

Gorgeous screen. Big, comfortable keyboard. Fast. Great video support. WiMAX 4G

No voice dialing over Bluetooth. A few buttons can be unresponsive. You have to pay for 4G even if you can't use it

The Samsung Epic 4G is Sprint's top keyboarded smartphone, and it's the right choice for power users who like physical buttons.

Samsung Galaxy Pro Review

 

With a flurry of Android handsets released in the past year, it's becoming increasingly difficult to differentiate between them. That said, QWERTY devices are thinner on the ground and for this reason, when the Samsung Galaxy Pro landed on our desk, we...
