Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 review: A sleeper but promising Android tablet

by Brian Yalung

Samsung does have its share of tablets. The Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 aesthetically offers promise, led by an HDR-ready screen, powerful speakers and capped by an upgraded S-Pen.

Samsung Galaxy Tab S3From those notable features alone, the Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 hints at being designed to adhere to the advanced media available and used by most to date. With streaming audio and videos available anywhere, the latest tablet from the Korean giant has quietly bumped up the hype for the tablet with most failing to notice it.

Who needs a laptop with the Samsung Galaxy Tab S3?

Samsung has added a pinch of flexibility with computing provisions with a keyboard that can be hooked up but bought separately. Like the iPad Pro and the Microsoft Surface Pro 4, such addresses the shift of users towards portable computing over carrying laptops or notebooks.

Aside from alleviating the burden of carrying bulky laptops or notebooks, the Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 is aesthetically pleasing. It should immediately capture anyone’s attention with its elegant sleek design, comfortable to hold and sporting a fairly similar look as the Galaxy Tab S2.

The tablet measures 237.3 x 169 x 6mm and weighs just 429 grams that should easily capture the attention of any fashion-centric techie who wants to do some browsing, HD media viewing and more.

Functionality still a primary. Before going any further, here are the notable specs for the Samsung Galaxy Tab S3. It features a 9.7-inch Super AMOLED capacitive touchscreen display (1536×20148 pixels) and relies on a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 chipset.

It also comes with 4 GB of RAM, 32 GB of internal storage (expandable up to 256 GB via microSD), a 13 MP main camera, a front-facing 5 MP shooter and a non-removable 6,000 mAh battery.

The Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 also comes with a slot made for Nano SIMS, USB-C connectivity and other traditional comms for use. It comes with Android 7.0 Nougat pre-installed, technically completing a device that can be used in any which way.

The Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 is technically a sleeper though it can pretty much give the iPad Pro or the Microsoft Surface Pro 4 a run for its money.

Being a new player in the tablet segment, it stands to be one of the best Android devices to get nowadays for those in search of one.
