Are you in search of a high-end Android tablet?
The Samsung Galaxy Tab S4 device is as high-end as you can get: a fast processor, a gorgeous HDR OLED and the S-Pen included. It also swerves the normally quite poor Android interface with some smart software choices. There’s a whole lot to like about the Tab S4.
The screen on the Samsung Galaxy Tab S4 is utterly gorgeous, and right up there with the iPad Pro 10.5 for having the finest display on any tablet you can buy right now. Samsung’s big win over Apple is the use of OLED tech, opposed to IPS LCD. OLED is used in some of the best TVs and it allows for perfect blacks and striking colours. The panel is HDR-enabled for apps such as Netflix and Prime Video, and it packs a high resolution of 2560 x 1600. Really, it ticks all the boxes.
Included with the Tab S4 is an S-Pen: a Wacom-powered stylus for doodling and note-taking. Unlike the S-Pen that slides into the Samsung Galaxy Note 8, the version here is chunkier and made completely from plastic – it feels a lot like a felt-tip pen. Considering how thin this tablet is, there’s nowhere for the S-Pen to live. The Samsung Tab S4 has a cover which provides a housing for the S-Pen. This cover does not come with the tab. As a creative tool, the S Pen is one of the best tablet styluses around, offering a solid 4096 pressure sensitivity levels and pleasing 0.7 mm rubber tip. The tip gives the pen a degree of resistance when writing on the screen. Scribbling in Samsung Notes, the pen is reactive and does not suffer any latency.
There are four speakers on the Galaxy Tab S4: two along the bottom and two on the top. Each has been ‘tuned’ by AKG – a brand owned by Samsung – and they’re capable of pushing out Dolby Atmos audio. Inside the Galaxy Tab S4 you’ll find a 7300mAh battery, which is a decent increase over the 6000mAh cell from the Tab S3. A fast charger is included in the box, via which you’ll be able to get from 0% to 100% in a couple of hours.
The Samsung Tab S4 offers a world of immersive, high-quality entertainment right at your fingertips.
