Samsung Galaxy Tab S review

89
Samsung Galaxy Tab S

When Samsung gets serious about tablets, it makes a couple of serious tablets

Yes, Samsung is releasing another series of flagship Android tablets with the Galaxy Tab S line. The Tab S tablets will be Samsung's top of the line product in this category, so they need to reach many goals and turn out something that can compete with other high-end products, as well as lure a few people away from the inexpensive competition. It's a very tough spot to be in, but not one Samsung hasn't conquered before — remember the original Galaxy S phone?

Up until now, a lot of tablets have done a lot of things just right. A Kindle Fire HD is great for reading or doing some shopping. Likewise for the Tegra Note 7 and some serious game-time. Want to get online and be social or just surf the web? The Nexus 7 is all things Google. Add in the iPad for those niche apps that are just perfect on a tablet, and everything is covered. But even if someone had all these tablets laying around, nobody wants to keep them all up and running. So we compromise. Now, we don't have to compromise. The Tab S excels at all these things, and more.

This is how an Android-powered tablet should be.
