Samsung Galaxy View Tablet Review


White giant. Thanks to its 18.4-inch screen, the Samsung Galaxy View stands out from the majority of tablets. This does, however, also affect the weight and the size. Where can you use such a tablet and can it convince in terms of technology?

very big touchscreen ; fast microSD-card slot ; USB-OTG & App2SD ; fast WLAN ; bright display with wide viewing angles ; decent battery runtimes ; integrated stand ...

... that is fixed and only provides two positions ; case made of hard plastic ; no Miracast or MHL support ; only usable in landscape mode (no position sensor) ; Video-App overview not very helpful ; only 2.1 MP webcam ; clattery buttons ; uneven...

Samsung’s Galaxy View is an unusual tablet with the unique and extremely big 18.4-inch touchscreen. It is also the dominating aspect when you look at the functionality: The mobility is affected by the high weight, bulky dimensions as well as the stand,...

Samsung Galaxy View Review


The Samsung Galaxy View is too cumbersome, underpowered, and expensive to recommend.

The big question here: Should you buy a Galaxy View? The simple answer: No, probably not.

Samsung Galaxy View review:


While visiting a friend in her charmingly cozy studio apartment full of beautiful worldly art and bountiful bookshelves, another friend lamented her lack of TV, because he wanted to watch a live basketball game. She said she usually watches TV on her...

The Samsung Galaxy View has a big, bright screen with a useful built-in stand and handle for carrying around. Its homepage aggregates popular streaming services to make watching video easy.

Its plastic kickstand feels cheap and slaps violently into the chassis when changing the angle. There are no ports for connecting devices like game consoles.

If the high price doesn't scare you off, the Samsung Galaxy View's large size and practical interface makes for a good alternative to a TV, if not a replacement.

Samsung’s enormous 18-inch tablet is a flawed experiment


Does the world need a ginormous tablet designed almost exclusively for streaming movies and TV shows? After spending a good week with Samsung's 18.4-inch Galaxy View, I can say that the answer is...

It's... unique ; microSD card slot ; Good battery life

Big and awkward to carry ; Underwhelming 1080p display ; Too expensive

Samsung Galaxy View


Grab your popcorn, some Bluetooth game controllers and a few friends. It's a TV/movie/game night courtesy of Samsung's latest creation, the Galaxy View (priced at $599). This monster, 18.4-inch tablet doubles as a TV, letting you watch all your...

Samsung Galaxy View Review


Samsung's tablet line has always been a diversified one catering to an assortment of consumers. Recently, however, they've scaled back the amount of models they manufacture, focusing instead on a select few that are more meaningful. Still, it shouldn't...

Great for watching videos ; Rich audio quality

Unwieldy to carry around due to its sheer size ; Boring, old-school Samsung design language ; Kickstand can’t be rearranged so it’s flush ; TouchWiz underutilizes the screen size ; Sluggish processing performance

From the office, to the home, we’re exposed to an assortment of mobile computing devices that cater to the occasion. The Samsung Galaxy View isn’t your conventional, mainstream tablet meant to bridge that smartphone and laptop experience into one – it...

Samsung Galaxy View Review: I Love This Magical Slab of Content


I love movies. I first watched Annie Hall on my phone. I fill my tablet with movies and watch them on planes. I still watch movies on my laptop, even when there's an actual television just a few feet away. This is why the Samsung Galaxy View feels so...

Samsung Galaxy View review


Ever looked at your tablet and thought 'Hey, that's small?'

New product type ; Nice TV interface

Heavy ; Plastic build ; Low-res screen

It's a nice idea from Samsung, but this should be a premium product with an amazing screen and design if it's to replace a laptop, which is surely the goal.

Samsung Galaxy View: 18.4-inch monster tries to bridge the gap between tablet and TV


Just how big should your tablet be? That's the question Samsung is posing with the launch of the new Samsung Galaxy View. There is no denying we are all watching more and more content around the house on devices that aren't our TV. Just most of them...

Massive 18.4-inch screen, two way stand for best viewing angle, promise of 8.5 hours of battery life

It's massive, you aren't going to take this out of your house, it doesn't lie flat, stand is two positions only
