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 10.5


A superbly rich display, clever software and long battery life make the Galaxy Tab S a compelling big-screen Android tablet.

Excellent Super AMOLED display; Slimmer and lighter than iPad Air; SideSync 3.0 lets you control your Galaxy phone; Very good battery life; Useful Kids Mode

Performance lags at times; Covers are awkward to use; Camera washes out some images

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

The Samsung Galaxy S5 was a significant step past the S4, but the step was subtle: It was in the screen and the software. The Galaxy Tab S 10.5 ($499, 16GB) pours the S5 equation into the best Android media tablet we've seen so far. It's slim,...

Samsung Galaxy Tab S 10.5 review


Keeping Samsung's line of tablets straight is not an easy job. There are the Note and Note Pro lines, the Tab Pro, Tab 3, the lower-end Tab 3 Lite, and the Galaxy Tab 4, most of which are available in multiple screen sizes. We do this for a living, and...

Stunning Super AMOLED screen ; Fingerprint scanner ; Thinner and lighter than the iPad Air ; MicoSD expansion slot ; 3GB of RAM

Screen feels almost too bright and vivid ; No black model available ; Isn’t dust/water-resistant like GS5 ; Fingerprint Scanner isn’t ideal for tablet use ; Sony’s Xperia Z2 tablet is a little thinner and lighter

Samsung’s Galaxy Tab S 10.5 sports a stunning Super AMOLED screen, a fingerprint reader, and top-notch specs. If you want the best Android slate, it should be near the top of your list.

Samsung Galaxy Tab S 10.5 Review


Samsung just can't get enough of itself it seems. First, it was the humble Galaxy Tab line that brought them into the tablet segment, then soon after that, the Galaxy Note family came screaming onto the scene with a healthy productivity element. Very...

Large 10.5-inch Super AMOLED display is dazzling ; Thin and light construction ; SideSync 3.0 offers phone functionality through the tablet ; Camera captures some decent photos and videos ; Very accurate display colors in “basic” mode

SideSync 3.0 supported is limited to a few Galaxy smartphones ; Performance dips with processor intensive operations ; Plastic body

Directly going head-to-head with several notable full-sized tablets, due to the starting price of $500 for the base Wi-Fi model, the Samsung Galaxy Tab S 10.5 is an inviting addition to Sammy’s long portfolio of tablets. Essentially, it proves to be...

So Samsung has announced its latest Android tablet at its Galaxy Premiere event (watch the Samsung Galaxy Premiere live video stream here), the Galaxy Tab S 10.5. How does the new tablet shape up against the iPad Air? We find out in our Galaxy Tab S...

It’s too early to say which tablet is the best, as we still need to test performance, battery life and camera quality among other things.It’s clear that the Tab S 10.5 is a strong rival to the iPad Air, but for those who own other Apple products the...

First Impressions: Bigger than an iPad, but is it better?
