Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 Tablet Review


One for everything. It has been quite a while since Samsung has upgraded its premium tablet. We were therefore eager to see how the new device, which is equipped with a lot of features and even the S Pen, performs. The tablet can convince in our...

high-quality and slim case ; expandable storage ; USB 3.1 ; long runtimes ; powerful SoC ; fast Wi-Fi ; great display with HDR ; S Pen included ; decent speakers ; call functionality

only LTE Cat. 6 ; slow storage ; weak cameras ; no NFC ; no high-end feeling

Samsung’s Galaxy Tab S3 LTE is a very good tablet, which does not rely on modern high-end hardware across the board (as with the Apple iPad 2017), but the overall package is very compelling. The Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 might not offer many superlatives,...

Samsung The Galaxy Tab S3 is good, but not $600 good


The Galaxy Tab S3 has a promising list of features, including its HDR-friendly screen, quad-speaker array, included S Pen and powerful processor. And they mostly work as touted. Its colorful and sharp display, coupled with loud audio, makes for...

Bright, vibrant display ; S Pen is responsive and useful ; Long-lasting battery

Expensive ; Keyboard costs an extra $130 ; Android still isn’t a good platform for desktop-level multitasking

Ultimately, the Tab S3 is a solid utility tablet that does nearly everything it promises. It provides a bright, vibrant display and booming audio for enjoyable binge watching or gaming, and a fluid S Pen experience that digital artists will appreciate....

Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 review


If I had to pick one tablet to watch video on for the rest of my life, I would pick the Samsung Galaxy Tab S3.

The Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 is an elegantly designed tablet that comes with a capable stylus. It has a stunning AMOLED screen, fingerprint sensor for extra security and satisfyingly loud quad speakers. It's also the first HDR-ready tablet.

Despite the hype, HDR content is not available on the tablet yet. Large games take time to load. The keyboard add-on is an expensive extra.

Samsung packs buzz-worthy features like S Pen and HDR support into its new premium Galaxy Tab S3, but without a keyboard packed in, it's still more about content consumption than creation.

Samsung Galaxy Tab S3


The Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 is the most powerful Android tablet available, but it's very pricey for the functionality you get.

Responsive S Pen. Gorgeous AMOLED screen. Very good battery life. Excellent Wi-Fi performance.

Expensive. Android doesn't match Windows on productivity. Camera isn't great.

No other Android tablet has the Galaxy Tab S3's specs. But no other Android tablet (except for the occasional Sony slate) has the Galaxy Tab S3's price. At $599.99 (or $729.99 with the keyboard), the Tab S3 competes with not only the iPad Pro, but with...

The Galaxy Tab S3 may be the best Android tablet you can buy, though its price is intimidating.

Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 Review


The Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 is the Galaxy Note Tablet that never was. In the best way possible, Samsung has created an Android answer for the iPad Pro. The Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 has some of the qualities of the Samsung Galaxy Note series - save a couple...

The Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 is as close to the Galaxy Note 7 as we’re going to get – until the Galaxy Note 8 arrives later this year. As a note taking, media presenting, top-notch entertainment tablet, the Galaxy Tab S3 is one of the best on the market...

Samsung Galaxy Tab S3


To inject new life into tablets, Samsung has borrowed liberally from its smartphones to create the Galaxy Tab S3. By bringing over some of the best things about Samsung's flagship phones -- such as a premium glass-and-metal design, a versatile S Pen...

Samsung Galaxy S III (U.S. Cellular)


The Samsung Galaxy S III is, hands down, the best smartphone available on U.S. Cellular.

State-of-the-art everything. Advanced call-quality features.

Very limited 4G LTE coverage. Screen could be brighter.

Conclusions The Galaxy S III is the smartphone U.S. Cellular subscribers have been waiting for. The S III is the most powerful Android phone in the nation today, and it now runs on the most-beloved network.

Samsung Galaxy S III (AT&T)


With top-of-the-line everything and plenty of innovative features, the AT&T Samsung Galaxy S III delivers the ultimate LTE Android smartphone experience.

State-of-the-art everything. Big, but light. Advanced call quality features. Long battery life.

Plastic build. Many features are buried deep in the UI.

Many of these features work well, but they're almost all buried. The interface is something of a scavenger hunt. Take Smart Stay, a neat new feature which detects your face and keeps the screen from going black while you're looking at it. I love it!...

Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 Review: Finally, an Android tablet built with enterprise users in mind


Show me an Android tablet and I'll show you a device that has yet to live up to its full potential. Google's Play Store lacks a wide selection of apps that support a tablet's larger display, with most apps only expanding the phone interface, in turn...

Lightweight, portable ; Amazing screen ; Lengthy battery life

The keyboard case is too confined ; High-quality Android tablet apps are still few and far between
