Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 review: Good notepad, bad notebook

While the rest of the industry may have given up on making premium Android tablets, Samsung isn’t quitting just yet. It still believes Google’s software has the potential to power superthin and light 2-in-1s, and so it recently unveiled a new version of its hybrid tablet. The Galaxy Tab S6 is a 10.5-inch device that’s designed for people who need to get work done on the go. It comes with an upgraded S Pen that features so-called Air Gestures for remote control of your apps; enhanced…

  1. Tab S6 is awesome if you like the Samsung Note series. It feels like a large Note 10+. Remember when you compared it to laptops this is 3 or 4 times lighter than many laptops and you don't need to carry heavy battery packs with you. This is a very portable and capable tablet for media and many office apps, plus the S Pen is such a joy to use.

  2. Played around with this in Best buy and love it. Too bad though that Samsung didnt sell the cover and keyboard with it.

    I compare it to a much bigger Note 10 Plus. It has all the features of that phone. I own the Note 10 Plus so I speak from experience. I love Samsung's super amoled displays.

  3. My dream scenario for Samsung’s tablets and Dex. Once Samsung starts making the exynos with AMD Radeon graphics. Would be their tablets being capable of light PC gaming on Linux. Like if I could get games like Rocket league to be playable even if it was just 720P 60FPS I’d take it.

  4. That detachable keyboard is sinfully ugly and clanky looking, like something out of the 90's, the bad part of the 90's. Tried it in store and hated it, plus $180? Really?
    I've got a Surface Pro 3 which is nearly 5 years old the $150 Keyboard & Pen accessory is as good as most dedicated laptops. Key travel is deep and sharp and the 12" size is so much better for typing than the 10" size.

  5. Thank you for the review. I'm using the Galaxy Tab S3 but I'm having a small problem with the settings. I can't find multiplwindows and also there is only one pane when open application, it used to be two.

    Please somebody help.

  6. I think youtubers and reviewers doomed the tablets nd chromebooks… By repeatedly saying horrible app support and all…..thus preventing users from buying thm…. Giving developers no incentive to improve support…. Catch 22 or wht?

  7. Honestly though, the one thing that I prefer about android OS in general over Apple’s iOS is how much more customizable it is. I do wish Apple would make iOS more customizable than it is. If somehow, a company put the customizability of android OS and the app ecosystem of Apple iOS, then that would be the perfect operating system for me as an individual.

  8. When Samsung makes a tablet that isn’t miles behind the IPad Pro models in processing power and app ecosystem, then I might be interested. Also, calling features like dex and and S-pen gestures innovations is a bit of a reach.The iPad Pro is still a better laptop replacement without having dex-like software, and the S-pen air gestures are just kinda funny. I personally don’t want to look like I’m orchestrating a choir just to switch between camera modes. Props to Samsung for trying to compete with Apple in the tablet market, but the Tab S6 is a bit of a swing and miss I think. Just my individual opinion.

  9. Android based system can never replace a true latop. I have tried it with my Samsung Tab S3. It just doesn't work. DRAG AND DROP does not work on android based devices. This is a must feature. I am replacing my android tablet with a 2 in 1 Chromebook.
