Samsung Galaxy Tab S
30 March 2015
Excerpt: The Samsung Galaxy Tab S might not yet be quite able to beat the Apple at the tablet game, but it’s one of the first to really give the iPad a run for its money. Though not quite as insanely thin and light as the latest iPad Air 2, the Samsung Galaxy Tab S comes very close to the Apple tablet's...
Summary: Actually, there is no shortage of Samsung tablets with a 10" display. The middle class is covered by the Galaxy Tab 4 10.1; more demanding users can fall back on the Galaxy TabPRO 10.1 or the Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 Edition with pen operation.
Pros: brilliant and high-resolution Super AMOLED display, extremely thin and light, but not fragile, good performance, current Android version with some useful Samsung apps, microSD card reader, infrared, access security using fingerprint sensor, LTE (optional)
Cons: no microHDMI, GPU performance not as outstanding as CPU performance
Conclusion: The Tab S 16GB/Wi-Fi model reviewed here is available at a price tag of AED 1,699, but if you opt for the 3G version you will have churn out AED 2,099. The Tab S is also available in 10.1-inch version for AED 2099 (Wi-Fi only) and AED 2599 (3G).
Excerpt: As the largest smartphone manufacturer in the world, Samsung has a lot to live up to. It’s created oodles of phones and tablets that have helped to move Android into the hands of the mass market, bringing Android to the top in popularity.
Summary: When Samsung sets out to conquer a certain division, they go all out. For years now, their GALAXY S and Note smartphones have been the best-selling devices worldwide. It was only until the recent surge of competition from Chinese manufacturers did they slip a little.
Pros: Stunning display, Good battery life, Superbly thin and light, Powerful performance
Cons: Occasional UI lag, Same old design, Still a little plasticky, Price
Summary: The Samsung Galaxy Tab S 10.5 is without a doubt an excellent piece of technology. However, the performance shows some flaws. Graphics performance also slightly fall behind an Adreno 330. Nonetheless, the tablet performs decently in combination with Google Android 4.4 KitKat.

Pros: excellent display, slim and lightweight design, many interfaces, memory can be upgraded, LTE, allows for calls, decent camera with LED flash, good battery life, The Super-AMOLED display is awesome. A full Adobe RGB coverage and a high color precision make the device also suitable for creative jobs.
Cons: poor speakers, only USB 2.0, no S-pen, no IP certification, modest microphone
Summary: The Tab S 10.5 is basically the bigger version of the S 8.4, which is more or less a bigger version of the S5 (minus some features like the heart rate sensor and the Extreme Power Saving mode).
Pros: Compact design, superb display and decent camera.
Cons: The expected price,might be physically big for some and it lags a bit when switching between apps.
