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

 

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Average battery life ; Doesn’t come with keyboard case ; Outdated chipset inside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

 

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 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

 

While other Android tablet makers are starting to embrace Chrome OS, the 10.5-inch Samsung Galaxy Tab S4 (starting at $649) is going in a different direction. With Samsung's DeX- mode software, this slate places an emphasis on productivity, which gives...

Samsung Galaxy Tab S4 review: A tablet that means business

 

Great for entertainment, the Tab S4 is an expensive Android tablet, but that's offset by the workspace that DeX provides, making this the best Android

DeX makes productivity work in Android form ; Fantastic display ; Great battery life ; Great keyboard experience (if you buy it) ; S Pen stylus included

Expensive ; Keyboard costs extra ; 4G costs extra ; Android isn't great for tablet apps ; Not all apps work with DeX

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 Tab S4 review: Free Style

 

If you're looking to buy an high-performance, premium Android tablet, the Samsung Galaxy Tab S4 should somewhere towards the top of your list

Slick software ; Big battery

DeX still doesn't deliver ; Not as feature rich as the Note
