Samsung has release a lot of tablets and now opens a new Galaxy Tab S-line. This is the thinnest and lightest tablet that Samsung has ever produced. Let’s take a closer look.
The Galaxy Tab S features a 10.5 inch display. On the back we see a plastic rubberized back, which is identical to the Samsung Galaxy S5. Another feature which you can only see in this tablet is the gold trim, no matter of the color you get gold will be the trim around the bezel and the fingerprint home button. The build quality is the same that Samsung uses in all other devices – plastic ! This tablet creeks in the hand and feels much less substantial in the hand compared to tablets like the Nexus 10 and the Apple iPad Air.
According to specs, they do have a lot to say. You’ll find a 1.9 GHz octa-core configuration, on the wi-fi models only you’ll find 1.3 GHz quad-core chip, packed with 3 GB of RAM, the Adreno 330 GPU. It has a decent 8 MP and a 2.1 MP front-facing camera.
It runs Android KitKat which is fantastic but it runs TouchWiz which at points concerns over 1 GB of RAM. I think that is unnecessary.
Samsung Galaxy Tab S features 10.5 inch display as I said. The display is Super AMOLED with a resolution of 2560 x 1600 pixels. This technology allows engineers to makes this tablet 6.6 mm thin and also allows them to pack this beautiful display, with 288 ppi. One huge benefit having this type of displays are the colors – blacks are truly black, whites are really white and bright, and all the reds and greens and blues look fine.
To be honest the Galaxy Tab S has a decent battery life just like the iPad Air. It has about 6 to 8 hours on screen time of about 80 % brightness.
So although it’s good but has some serious software limitations and I wish this thing runs stock Android because it will be lighting fast with this specs. So for me if you want an Android tablet, buy the Nexus 10.BUY Samsung Galaxy Tab S
