The Galaxy Tab S7 didn’t get a ton of love during an unpacked event that announced five major new devices. Understandable, maybe. It doesn’t have enough of the Note line’s star power, nor does it have the new foldable or Bluetooth airbeds. Tablets are usually not as interesting as they used to be.
But Samsung’s plugin continues. The company makes a lot of tablets. It’s just his thing. When you can make a dozen, why make each one with different price points and target audience? This is the Galaxy Tab line, however, it is always worth a look, which has provided a premium slate experience designed to complement its Galaxy handsets.
In fact, in a world where Android is Tablets are a large-scale budget device, and Samsung is still one of the few that is still developing a device that can be integrated with the iPad. The latest model offers a number of key features, although the largest company is not available on the Tab S7 + review unit with which the company shipped.
The device will be one of the first tablets to get 5G connectivity. There’s still price and availability on this SQ, though, honestly, I can’t imagine how many people will continue to demand a salon connector on their tablet as long as they continue to work from home. When the journey finally resumes, it could be a different story.
That said, the model shipped with Samsung right after the unpacked incident is a beast. This tab is a special version of the S7 +, starting at 9849. Advanced has raised the RAM from 6GB to 8GB and the storage from 128GB to 256GB. Add the bleeding Snapdragon 865+, and you’ve got a very capable machine in your hands here.
The design matches the premium specs. Gone are the early model trades for plastic design, a sleek and strong glass and aluminum design. This is a tablet that looks as premium as its price indicator. It’s a bit heavier, though, at 1.26 pounds for the 12.4-inch model, and 1.41 pounds for the 12.9-inch iPad Pro. The truth about these devices is that they are not designed to hold over your face when you lie on your bed.
Their goal is, of course, to be real multi-tasking work / play machines. I should note that I am writing this as someone who continues to use laptops for all their work, but I can certainly appreciate the progress that has been made in the category in recent years. I also know a handful of people who Has successfully traded most of its work machines for a tablet, be it an Android device, a Surface or an iPad.
The price of a tablet as a work machine is, of course, just as good as a statement you can’t reasonably make about most products. Along with the device itself, Samsung has upgraded the case in some good ways. The typing experience isn’t exactly the same as a dedicated laptop keyboard, but it’s much better. The keys have a reasonable amount of travel and a nice spring to cover the laptop. The leather case also comes in two pieces, so the back can be used as a stand, without a keyboard. Indeed. In such a case, trade is the fact that it really can’t be used on anyone’s lap without things falling apart and falling apart.
Of course it wouldn’t be a Samsung tablet without the S Pen. Peripheral, thankfully, included. There is no slot for the stylus (which I keep asking for but never get, sometimes life is hard), but despite being a little weak in it, it snaps magnetically to the top of the device ۔ Samsung has definitely developed a small ecosystem for the input device, and I’m very impressed that it’s able to recognize and change my chicken consumption. Seriously, my already awful pen time has just been well-known.
Points, too, for a beautiful OLED display with a 120Hz refresh rate. Depending on what you want to do with it, you may need to toggle it to save battery life. Both models are quite strong on this front with 8,000 and 10,900 mAh, respectively, but the 5G models will no doubt.
Samsung is really pushing for DeX – even tougher than in the past. When you plug in the keyboard, you can set it to automatically trigger proximity to the desktop. The interface is an attempt to estimate something similar to the Windows desktop experience, but many apps still don’t support the interface and overall it still feels complicated. It’s easy to pull off a bit and imagine how it would improve things like multitasking, but it doesn’t feel like it’s there.
