Samsung Galaxy Tab S 10.5 Tablet Review

 

Brilliant star. The Samsung Galaxy Tab S 10.5 relies on an in-house South Korean processor, which is why it slightly lags behind the Note 10.1 in terms of performance. Battery life shows some flaws, which are however still in a very good range. The...

excellent display, slim and lightweight design, many interfaces, memory can be upgraded, LTE, allows for calls, decent camera with LED flash, good battery life, The Super-AMOLED display is awesome. A full Adobe RGB coverage and a high color precision...

Samsung Galaxy Tab S 10.5 review: Thin, light and very impressive

 

Samsung's copious software add-ons and UI tweaks mean that the Galaxy Tab S delivers a particular kind of Android experience. We have a few issues with some of these extras, but the slimline Galaxy Tab S is still a very impressive tablet.

Thin and light ; Excellent screen ; Good battery life ; Reasonably priced LTE option

My Magazine feature can't be removed ; Disappointing speakers ; Lacks NFC

Review: Samsung Galaxy Tab S

 

With both the 8.4-inch and 10.5-inch Galaxy Tab S, Samsung has managed to stand out in a sea of lookalike tablets. Even more impressive, they've...

Beautiful high-resolution AMOLED displays. Absurdly thin and light. Expandable storage via MicroSD slot. Multi Window mode is a useful extra, as is SideSync if you own a Galaxy phone. Solid battery life

TouchWiz UI means there’s a bit of bloatware in the mix. That same plastic dimpled backing as the Samsung Galaxy S5 (although it does look better on these tablets)

Samsung Galaxy Tab S 10.5 review: Splashing colors

 

Samsung Galaxy Tab S 10.5 is the full-size member of the freshly announced tablet family by Samsung. Like its smaller sibling, the Galaxy Tab S 8.4, the newcomer capitalizes on the world's only 10.5-inch Super AMOLED screen panel and aims to capture a...

10.5" WQXGA Super AMOLED display with a resolution of 2560 x 1600 pixels ; The Wi-Fi-only version comes with Exynos Octa 5420 chipset; quad-core Cortex-A15 CPU plus quad-core Cortex-A7 CPU; Mali-T628 GPU, 3GB RAM ; The LTE (Cat.4) version comes with...

The available color schemes might not fit all tastes ; Android still lags behind iOS in terms of tablet-optimized apps ; GPU performance leaves a lot to be desired ; No NFC

Like its smaller sibling, the Samsung Galaxy Tab S 10.5 is well worthy of carrying the S moniker in its name. The slate seamlessly combines class-leading display, powerful hardware, and an ultra-slim, easy to handle body.

With a stunning display and high-end specs, the Tab S line is the best tablet from Samsung to date.

Hi-res Super AMOLED HD display is bright and vibrant ; Super slim profile ; Access to free magazine subscriptions, in-app credits, and more perks

Reliance on plastic materials doesn't give the tablet a premium feel ; Heavy software customization makes performance lag at times

Samsung Galaxy Tab S review

 

The Samsung Galaxy Tab S is shaking up the tablet scene with an ultra-thin, lightweight design and colorfully brilliant screen that blows the competition out of the water.

The Samsung Galaxy Tab S rocks a vividly colorful, razor-sharp screen and exclusive software perks in an ultra-thin and lightweight design.

Starting at $500 or £400, it's a high-end purchase. Touchscreen response can lag if many of its memory-hogging apps are open in the background.

An exceptional screen and a long list of software goodies make the Galaxy Tab S Samsung's best tablet to date and our top Android choice for an entertainment slate.

Samsung Galaxy Tab S 10.5

 

The Galaxy Tab S 10.5 is the best Android-powered media tablet available, but its competition is stiff.

Slim and light. Amazing screen.

Wi-Fi and GPU performance not quite up to the competition.

Comparisons and Conclusions Let's establish first that the Galaxy Tab S models are for people who prioritize media consumption. For productivity, nothing beats a Windows 8.1 tablet , although the iPad can come close; Android is just short on...

Samsung Galaxy Tab S 10.5-inch, white

 

The 10.5-incher isn't the only tablet with a spectacular display -- the Kindle Fire HDX 8.9 and Apple iPad are two of the most notable -- but of all of those the slates, the Tab S takes the cake. Its pixel-packed super-AMOLED screen boasts richly...

Samsung Galaxy Tab S review

 

Samsung's gadget playbook is pretty obvious to anybody who's been watching. It has created a relatively stable (if uninspiring) design language, chosen plastic as its preferred material, and cranked out device after device — each one based on small,...

Great display ; Thin and light ; Multi window software

Plastic body ; Confusing software features ; Finicky fingerprint reader

Samsung Galaxy Tab S review: 10.5 and 8.4 Android glamour

 

Samsung has always been at the forefront of envelope-pushing when it comes to slim tablets, and the Galaxy Tab S is no exception. Challenging Apple's iPad line-up head on, and borrowing the Super AMOLED technology and fingerprint biometrics from the...

Samsung hasn’t been short on tablet options, but it’s always been phones not slates that the company’s mobile devision is best known for. The Galaxy Tab S duo follow in the footsteps of the Galaxy Note Pro, distinguishing themselves with unique...
