Samsung Galaxy View

 

Samsung's made a big tablet with a handle. By big I mean 18.4-inches, which is huge. Most laptops have 13 and 15-inch screens, so the Galaxy View is in a different league of big.

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

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 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 Galaxy View Review: Hands-on

 

Samsung Galaxy View Review: Last week we went hands-on with one of the most unusual devices in Samsung's 2015 portfolio; the sizeable Samsung Galaxy View....

Great for entertainment ; Vibrant screen ; Integrated kickstand ; Smart user interface

Not very portable ; Low resolution screen ; Needs more storage

We’re not sure whether the team responsible for the Samsung Galaxy View are geniuses or mad. They’ve either created the most awkward tablet ever or carved out a new market segment, just as the Note family did; serving as the catalyst for the phablet...

Samsung Galaxy View: There's no room for this huge tablet in your life [REVIEW]

 

Responsive touchscreen ; Volume goes really loud ; microSD card for storage expansion

No way to customize media streaming home screen ; Super reflective screen with poor viewing angles ; Buggy ; Landscape view only ; Not all Android apps work ; Screen isn't ultra-sharp

Between smartphones, tablets, laptops and TVs, there's really no room for the Samsung Galaxy View.
