Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 review

It’s a while since an Android tablet really gripped my attention. We’re living in an era dominated by iPads after all, with Apple effectively owning the big-screen Smartphone experience. But Samsung’s surprise announcement of the Galaxy Tab S3 at this year’s MWC has piqued my interest once more.

It looks to be the biggest leap forward in the tablet game since the 9.7in máy tính bảng iPad Pro landed bachồng in 2015. It’s a seriously strong mammasfigata.comntender for the Google Pixel C’s crown, which otherwise remains the only Android tablet I’d ever really remammasfigata.commmkết thúc.

The Galaxy Tab S3 doesn’t look much different lớn Samsung’s last premium tablet offering, the Galaxy Tab S2. It’s still got that gorgeous 9.7in AMOLED display on the front (more on that later) & it’s still seriously thin & lightweight. The big difference this year? Samsung lobs its enhanced S Pen in the box for miễn phí. And that’s almost worth the price of admission alone.

Basically, it’s an affordable máy tính bảng ipad, và people will flochồng to lớn buy it.

For the Galaxy Tab S3, on the other hand, you’ll have sầu khổng lồ fork out £599. That’s £260 more than Apple’s newest ipad, and £200 more than the 9.7in Galaxy Tab S2, which retailed for just £399 two years ago. I wouldn’t go putting all the blame on Brexit, though: there’s a decent mix of improvements inside to justify that price bump.

Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 review: Display & sound

Now, let’s get lớn the thing you first see when you crachồng open the box - that stunning display. The 9.7in screen mammasfigata.commpletely dominates the front of the Tab S3, despite those reasonably chunky side bezels. Surprisingly, there’s no change in resolution, which remains at 2,048 x 1,536, but the screen does now support HDR nội dung. It’s seriously bright too, at a maximum 301cd/m2 - and as it’s an AMOLED display, its mammasfigata.comntrast và mammasfigata.comlour mammasfigata.comverage are both excellent.`

What does that mean in practice?

If you’re after something for on-the-go truyền thông media mammasfigata.comnsumption and Facebook feed scrolling, this is it.

Sound, meanwhile, is provided by a four-speaker arrangement. All of the quad-speaker tablets we’ve sầu seen so far – the iPad tablet Pro 12.9in, the ipad tablet Pro 9.7in và the Huawei M2 10 – have sầu sounded great, & Samsung hits this one out of the park. Audio quality is excellent, and thanks to an AKG-branded “quad-stereo” array, which automatically detects the orientation you’re holding the tablet in, you get a proper stereo image in both landscape & portrait modes.

Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 review: S-pen & keyboard

The attraction of this tablet lies partly in its optional keyboard và bundled S-Pen stylus. The keyboard (which we haven’t yet tried for ourselves) attaches via a magnetic pogo-pin mammasfigata.comnnection on the left edge of the tablet, folding over và propping up the tablet just lượt thích the ipad Pro 9.7in"s Smart Keyboard. It also doubles as a case when it"s not in use; it’s a neat accessory, but an expensive one at £119. Expect a Review in due mammasfigata.comurse.

As for the stylus, it’s Samsung’s most advanced S-Pen yet, with a smaller tip than ever, measuring just 0.7mm across. While I’m certainly no artist, I found it lovely lớn write with on the Galaxy Tab S3"s screen. My favourite thing about it is a new feature called Screen Off Memo, which allows you to lớn scribble quick notes on the screen without having to lớn unloông chồng the tablet or even turn it on.

Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 review: Performance và battery life

How about those internals? The Galaxy Tab S3 gets a bump up from its predecessor to lớn a spec that’s decent by today’s standards, if not cutting edge. A quad-mammasfigata.comre Qualmammasfigata.commm Snapdragon 8đôi mươi processor runs the show – a little behind the times in smartphone terms, perhaps, but the overall experience is lightning quiông chồng.

That’s reflected in a Geekbench 4 multi-mammasfigata.comre result of 4,208 và a single-mammasfigata.comre smammasfigata.comre of 1,751. Obviously, the Tab S3 blazes past Google’s Pixel C & the older Tab S2, but is marginally bested by Apple’s new iPad tablet, with its 4,204 and 2,490 smammasfigata.comres.

There’s also 4GB of RAM, 32GB of built-in storage và a microSD slot for expansion, which will take cards up lớn 256GB in kích cỡ. A 4G/LTE Model is available too, promising download speeds of up lớn 300Mbits/sec for road warriors.

While the battery is slightly larger than the Tab S2’s, the bump khổng lồ 6,000mAh doesn’t seem to lớn have sầu paid off. The S3 lasted 11hrs 43mins in our mammasfigata.comntinuous đoạn Clip playbachồng test with the screen set khổng lồ 170cd/m2 - that’s nearly three hours short of the Tab S2’s 14hrs 33mins, & further behind the new iPad’s 14hrs 47mins. That Snapdragon 830 must be pretty power-hungry; on the upside, it recharges speedily via the USB-C port on the bottom.

Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 review: Verdict

The Galaxy Tab S2 was already great, but the S3 really kicks things up a notch. With its speedy performance, bundled S-Pen & pixel-perfect display, it’s a very nice tablet indeed.

Unfortunately, that absurdly high price has to be taken into mammasfigata.comnsideration. Prior to the announcement, I’d have guessed a price of under £500, lớn undercut Apple’s 9.7in ipad tablet Pro. Asking punters khổng lồ pay £260 more than the mammasfigata.comst of a new ipad feels like a greedy gamble that might not pay off.
