Samsung Galaxy Tab S4 review | Trusted Reviews

 

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Average battery life ; Doesn’t come with keyboard case ; Outdated chipset inside

Samsung Galaxy Tab S4 review

 

Samsung takes on the iPad Pro, again

Cheaper all-in than a rival iPad Pro ; DeX makes laptop-like use less of a joke ; Bold screen

The back is fingerprint central ; Doesn’t have the latest-greatest CPU ; Speakers lack real bass

The Tab S4 may not flatten the iPad Pro range, but it’s the best Android alternative you can get at present

Samsung Galaxy Tab S4 review

 

The only iPad Pro competitor out there

PC desktop-like Dex interface ; Comes with the S Pen stylus ; Large 10.5-inch screen

Dex touchscreen detection is off ; Keyboard design is unintuitive ; Expensive for what it delivers

The Galaxy Tab S4 is an attempt to push Android tablets to the next level with 2-in-1 desktop-like software, and while it's what we want to see from even the iPad, the idea doesn't automatically make it the best tablet. It has a premium price tag, the...

Samsung Galaxy Tab S4 review: An ambitious Android-powered rival to the iPad Pro

 

Maybe the most luxurious Android tablet, with some innovative features – but it doesn't hang together quite as well as you'd hope

Sumptuous design ; Great screen ; Excellent battery life ; Bundled S Pen works well

Outdated internals ; Keyboard Cover has no touchpad for DeX ; No stylus holder

To be sure, Samsung deserves credit for not merely mimicking Apple, but attempting to carve out a distinctive future for Android as a productivity platform. Ultimately, though, it doesn’t come off. For every plus point there’s a but – and that’s hard...
