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 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....

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

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 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 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

Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 Review

 

With tablet sales plateauing and lots of decent low-cost options to choose from, premium tablets have become tough sells. Increasingly, we've seen tablets billed as creative tools, combined with styluses and keyboards to become good sketchpads in...

Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 review: a near perfect work tool

 

How many devices do you need to write a review? For this one, I only needed one: the Galaxy Tab S3. As you scroll down to continue reading, think about how each of the words in this article was produced using Samsung's native keyboard, and that the...

Design ; Capactive S-Pen ; Independent LTE connection ; Security and privacy

Android apps ecosystem for tablets ; No waterproofing ; Battery is only satisfactory

The Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 should not be viewed as a permanent replacement for your laptop or PC, but it has all the makings of a great working tool. When I write at the AndroidPIT Offices, I use a desktop running Windows 10 Pro; at home, I use a...

Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 Review

 

In what was once a fruitful market, tablets were everywhere and made by just about every manufacturer around. That doesn't mean they were all good but some did stand out. One of those and of the last standing is Samsung. Samsung made a bevy of tablet...

After spending the past few weeks with Samsung’s latest tablet I have grown to using it more. Based on its portability, decent battery life and quick charging. Display is still some of the best out there but would love to see HDR supported by apps to...

Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 Review and Ratings

 

Samsung's iPad Pro competitor is an impressive tablet with a few quirks, excellent battery life, and so-so speakers. But the price needs to fall, especially as Android is better suited to media consumption than productivity.

Excellent battery life ; Very snappy performance ; Top-notch screen ; Redesigned S Pen feels great, is included

Ho-hum speakers ; Glass back (and tablet as a whole) is slippery to grip ; Keyboard case pushes price to $729

We're happy to see Samsung launch a new high-end Android tablet. Apart from Google's Pixel C (which launched near the end of 2015), the market has been dominated of late by midrange and low-end models that, while they can be good values and perform...
