Samsung was the one of the first companies to release an Android tablet, back when the iPad was brand new and exciting. The Korean giant has tried selling a huge variety of models over the years, hitting multiple target audiences, sizes and price points. While excitement about the tablet category as a whole has died down, Samsung continues to push its high-end Galaxy Tab S which competes directly with Apple’s iPad and iPad Pro.
The new Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 is a premium Android tablet, and is trying to find its footing in a market that is disappearing. It offers better value than the iPad Pro because of the bundled S-Pen stylus and cellular connectivity, but the Android app ecosystem is still lacking. The Galaxy Tab S3 looks good, its high-res screen supports HDR video and the S-Pen is truly versatile, but that isn't enough to make this anyone's primary device. The camera is barely average and battery life is also ordinary. Buy this tablet if you like expensive toys, otherwise spend the money on a laptop.
