Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 review

Samsung Galaxy Tab S6

The Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 is the latest high end 10.5 inch tablet to challenge Apple’s iPad Pro and it costs considerably less. The Galaxy Tab S6 has a fast processor, a good display and either 128GB or 256GB of RAM. You also get an S-Pen and decent front and rear cameras.

Galaxy Tab S6 packs new enhancements to its camera, including Samsung’s first dual camera with Ultra Wide camera on a tablet, within a compact 5.7mm slim body that is both lighter and more portable. The Ultra Wide camera allows users to capture the scenery and landscapes just as they see them with a 123-degree field of view, as wide as the human eye. Meanwhile, the Neural Processing Unit lets you take professional photos through enhanced effects to your subjects, so your photos look like they were taken by a pro.

Samsung is also bringing the on-screen Fingerprint Scanner to its tablet for the first time with Galaxy Tab S6, so that accessing your tablet is more convenient than ever. This ease and convenience is further protected by Samsung Knox, Samsung’s defense-grade security platform. Additionally, you can easily wake your Galaxy Tab S6 by tapping on the screen twice, allowing you to log in and start your day quickly.

As a part of Samsung’s Galaxy Ecosystem, the Galaxy Tab S6 becomes a hub of your connected experience to manage your appliances with SmartThings. Together with Bixby, you can easily control your devices via voice commands.

Samsung’s signature S Pen began as an instrument for writing and drawing, but it has evolved to become the ultimate creativity and productivity partner. Now with remote control functionality and wireless charging capabilities, S Pen on Galaxy Tab S6 puts even more power and control in users’ hands. With built-in BLE remote control features including a gesture function called S Pen Air actions, S Pen lets you intuitively take selfies and videos, or control the multimedia content you create even when the tablet is not in your hands.

Galaxy Tab S6 makes taking notes with S Pen a breeze. Handwritten Samsung Notes can be converted to digital text and exported to formats like Microsoft Word with just one click. You can also jot down quick notes or sketches while watching a video on the same screen by adjusting the Samsung Notes’ window transparency—perfect for effortless multitasking.

Whether you are enjoying a new game or binge-watching your favourite TV show, Galaxy Tab S6 delivers an amazing viewing experience. Its epic 10.5” Super AMOLED display, paired with quad speakers sound by AKG and Dolby Atmos®, keeps you immersed in the action.

Galaxy Tab S6 enables high-quality, captivating gaming through a combination of graphics, sounds, and intelligent hardware and software, bolstered by partnerships with leading game platforms like Unity and Unreal Engine. A powerful processor and Game Booster with AI capabilities enhance the gaming experience on Galaxy Tab S6 through optimised FPS, screen lag, loading time and more.

With Galaxy Tab S6, you can enjoy more of your favourite content. You can easily browse Netflix content on the device’s Finder or watch your favourite YouTube videos ad-free, offline, and on-the-go with four free months of YouTube Premium.

A new-and-improved version of Samsung DeX is also packed into the Galaxy Tab S6, enabling you to seamlessly transition to a PC-like experience, so you can easily multitask and optimise your viewing experience. With a DeX function key added to the Galaxy Tab S6’s new dedicated Keyboard Book Cover, you can launch and close DeX with the tap of a key. The keyboard has been fine-tuned for better functionality, including an S Pen holder, free angle stand, touch pad and new function keys.

Galaxy Tab S6 comes in Mountain Grey and Rose Blush colours. It will be available in stores and online beginning late August in select markets.
