Samsung Galaxy Tab S4 review

 

Fantastic, high-resolution screen ; Day-long battery life ; Great, portable size ; Good performance ; Decent 2-in-1 solution

DeX is still a work in progress ; Not enough tablet-optimized apps ; Expensive

The Samsung Galaxy Tab S4 is a good portable tablet with a unique desktop interface — it’s the best Android tablet to date — but it doesn’t particularly excel in one area. While the hardware is polished, the software is cumbersome.

Samsung Galaxy Tab S4

 

The Samsung Galaxy Tab S4 is the best Android tablet we've seen to date, but it still can't beat Windows-powered 2-in-1s for productivity.

Sleek build. Gorgeous display. Loud speakers. Great stylus for drawing and note-taking. Excellent Wi-Fi connectivity. Dex brings desktop-like experience.

Expensive. Keyboard accessory costs extra. Mediocre camera. Android-powered tablets still can't do everything Windows tablets can.

In some ways, the Samsung Galaxy Tab S4 feels like it has a bit of an identity problem. It offers a fantastic multimedia experience with its sharp screen and great audio, but if you want a tablet just for entertainment, the $329 iPad has similar...

Samsung Galaxy Tab S4 review: valiant effort

 

A new weight class of tablet

Gorgeous screen ; Excellent battery life ; DeX is great for multitasking

Android apps for tablets are still mediocre ; Requires you to buy keyboard / mouse for Dex to be useful ; Face / iris scanning is hit or miss

Samsung's Galaxy Tab S4 review: It'll keep you entertained, but it's no PC replacement

 

The premium Android tablet shines for feasting on media, but a desktop-like interface and a cramped, pricey keyboard won't have you leaving your laptop behind.

The Samsung Galaxy Tab S4 raises the bar on its predecessor with a bigger display, better performance and the addition of Samsung DeX, which gives it a PC-like interface. Samsung includes an excellent S Pen for drawing and writing on the 10.5-inch...

The keyboard cover is not included, it's expensive and, in the end, hurts the DeX desktop experience.

The Samsung Galaxy Tab S4 is an excellent premium Android tablet that can also help your productivity in a pinch.

Cramped keyboard; No touchpad; DeX has room to improve ; The Galaxy Tab S4 pushes Android tablets toward with its productivity-focused DeX mode, but it has a few flaws.

Samsung Galaxy Tab S4 Tablet Review

 

Room for improvement. Samsung has upgraded its flagship tablet, which is probably one of the last Android tablets to have both high-end specifications and pen input. However, the Galaxy Tab S4 has some shortcomings. Find out in what areas the Tab S4...

slim, stylish design ; good performance ; expandable storage ; impressive OLED display ; decent quad-speakers ; S Pen support ; DeX integration ; optional LTE modem ; USB 3.1 with HDMI and DisplayPort support

last year’s flagship SoC ; weak cameras ; small internal storage ; no NFC ; the device does not have a premium feel

The Samsung Galaxy Tab S4 is currently the strongest Android tablet on the market. The great Super AMOLED display is particularly convincing, while its DeX integration is great for productivity, although there are limitations with its use for gaming...

Excellent OLED display ; Thin and light design ; Well-integrated keyboard case ; Optional desktop-like workflow

Performance could have been better ; Few apps are fully exploiting Dex

Samsung Galaxy Tab S4 Review

 

With a slim bezel, lack of a home button, four speakers tuned by AKG, and last year's hardware on board, is the Galaxy Tab S4 worth its entry price of $650? Well, let's check it out!

Premium look and feel ; Samsung DeX straight on the tablet ; Beautiful and fluid software ; S Pen is among the best styluses out there ; Quad speakers with a very good stereo split

The quad speakers sound just OK ; Hefty build and glass back make it hard to handle sometimes ; Last year's flagship chipset ; Iris scanner can be a bit awkward on a tablet ; Underwhelming cameras

Samsung Galaxy Tab S4 review, price, feature, release date and s-pen. Is this the tablet to make Android tablets big again?

Stunning display ; Dex mode is an improvement to the UI ; S-Pen included

Would like more RAM ; Glass back is slippery and delicate ; Lingering issues with Android on tablets ; Dex mode has a few annoying bugs

If you want a high-end Android tablet then the Tab S4 is the device to get.

Samsung Galaxy Tab S4 review: the one true iPad alternative

 

Don't want an iPad? If you're after a tablet, you may want to go for the Samsung Galaxy Tab S4.

Beautifully sharp and bright display ; Enviable design that grabs the eye ; S Pen stylus is impressive and comes with it ; Top audio quality for a tablet

Average battery life ; Doesn’t come with keyboard case ; Outdated chipset inside
