3 Great Keyboards for your Samsung Tab S3

The Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 is the best tablet you can buy in 2018, but if you want to get more done on your Galaxy Tab S3, you're going to want a Bluetooth keyboard.

The best come built into a case, which is what we've highlighted below!

Samsung Keyboard Cover

We'll start with Samsung's own Bluetooth keyboard cover which is designed to snap onto the built-in POGO pin connectors on the tablet itself. Whereas other cases rely on a Bluetooth connection for connecting the keyboard, Samsung's is a direct connection which should result in the most responsive typing.

The cover folds back to become a handy stand so you can type comfortably on your lap or on a table. When you're not typing away, the cover provides protection for your screen.

Samsung's keyboard cover is lightweight, adding very little bulk to your Tab S3, so your tablet remains as portable as ever and even more convenient. The keyboard is so thin that you'd hardly know there was a keyboard tucked in there with the case closed.

This case is available in multiple color options at Samsung (opens in new tab) for $130, or you can get it on Amazon for just $72.

  • I personaly use the samsung keyboard cover and i think the typing is great, but connectivity has some issues, like if you touch the screen the tablet shakes a little bit and the screen turns off.
  • Agreed. But I really like the feel of it. The key travel is just awesome.
