Samsung Galaxy Tab S 8.4 Tablet Review

 

Stunning screen. Samsung also relies on a high-resolution, Super AMOLED screen in its Galaxy Tab S 8.4. It is the tablet's absolute highlight. The in-house processor is good, but cannot compete with current high-end SoCs. Otherwise, the equipment is...

Fast processor, Brilliant screen, Slim and light design, Many interfaces, Expandable storage, LTE, Can be used for telephony, Decent camera with LED flash, Good battery runtimes

Poor speakers, USB 2.0 only, No S Pen, No IP certification, Middling microphone

Just like its larger brother, the screen is the biggest highlight of Samsung's Galaxy Tab S 8.4. It convinces with a large color space coverage and accurate color reproduction. Additionally, nothing stands in the way of outdoor use. Users who do not...

Galaxy Tab S 8.4 Review

 

With the launch of the Tablet S 8.4 and 10.5 models, Samsung is fighting for the high-end tablet market. With an ultra-slim and ultra-light design, along with a formidable high-DPI Super-AMOLED display, it looks like a very strong contender for user...

Samsung Galaxy Tab S 8.4

 

The Samsung Galaxy Tab S 8.4 tablet has supremely elegant hardware, a beautiful display, and fast Android performance.

Slim and light. Fast. Great battery life. Incredible screen.

GPU and Wi-Fi performance could be better. No word on an Android Lollipop update.

Comparisons and Conclusions Android tablets have certainly grown up. For the past few years, we've recommended tablets like the Nexus 7 because they're less expensive than iOS and Windows alternatives. But the Galaxy Tab S 8.4 isn't less expensive; at...

Samsung Galaxy Tab S 8.4-inch, bronze

 

This 8.4-inch tablet shares many of the design cues of the S5 phone, including the soft-touch dot-effect back and physical home button on the front, but packs in a super high resolution display, an octa-core processor (that's eight cores in total) and...

The Samsung Galaxy Tab S 8.4 is extremely slim, has a gorgeous, super-high-definition display, tonnes of power, and the latest version of Android KitKat on board.

It's packed full of so much bundled software from Samsung and third parties that it will likely be confusing for first-time Android users.

With its slim design, fantastic screen, and oodles of power, the Samsung Galaxy Tab S 8.4 is a superb smaller tablet, and a worthy competitor to the ever-popular iPad Mini.

Samsung Galaxy Tab S (8.4-inch) review

 

The Galaxy S5 may be Samsung's darling child, packing in everything a top-end phone should, but if its 5-inch screen just doesn't cut it for your sofa surfing, turn your attention to the Galaxy Tab S 8.4.

Samsung Galaxy Tab S 8.4 and 10.5 review: Best Android tablets thanks to a super display

 

Samsung makes the best Android tablets and there is nothing better than these new Tab S devices.

Good protection ; Can use in multiple configurations ; Innovative hinge for variable viewing angles

A bit thick when closed ; Expensive

It's too bad Samsung couldn't have had these available in February rather than having to release similar tablets so close to each other. I also wish their cellular models were ready to go at launch and don't think they take anything away from sales of...

Samsung Galaxy Tab S 8.4 review: S-class coupe

 

The freshly announced Samsung Galaxy Tab S 8.4 is the first tablet from Samsung to sport the highly-revered S moniker. Ultra-slim and sexy, the device has the internals too to merit the special letter. The eponymous bunch of handsets propelled Samsung...

Optional Cat. 4 LTE connectivity ; 8.4" WQXGA Super AMOLED display with a resolution of 2560 x 1600 pixels ; Exynos Octa 5422 chipset; quad-core Cortex-A15 CPU @ quad-core Cortex-A7 CPU; Mali-T628 GPU ; Snapdragon 800, quad-core Krait 400 @ 2.3GHz;...

The available color schemes might not fit all tastes ; No NFC ; Android still lags behind iOS in terms of tablet-optimized apps

The Samsung Galaxy Tab S 8.4 could very well be the most capable compact tablet money can buy, regardless of the OS. The ultra-slim slate is certainly worthy of the S badge thanks to its gorgeous Super AMOLED display, powerful hardware, almost...

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...

Great display ; Thin and light ; Multi window software

Plastic body ; Confusing software features ; Finicky fingerprint reader

A tablet is more than the sum of its specs

Samsung Galaxy Tab S 8.4 Review

 

Combining the sharpest display on a tablet yet with an attractive design and powerful software, the Galaxy Tab S 8.4 is worth its premium price.

Eye-popping display; Attractive design; Immersive, versatile Kids Mode; Quality touch keyboard

Many apps not optimized for high-res display; Expensive; Mediocre Camera

Combining the sharpest display on a tablet yet with an attractive design and powerful software, the Galaxy Tab S 8.4 is worth its premium price.
