Samsung Galaxy Tab S Hands-on (10.5 & 8.4)


In true Samsung fashion we got to see a new line of Galaxy Tab Tablets yesterday in NYC, at Madison Square Garden. Samsung launched its new Galaxy Tab S series of tablets in both 8.4 inch and 10.5 inch variants.  Galaxy Tab S was designed with screen quality and style in mind, to bring users the most immerse viewing experience. The Tab S delivers on this with a WQXGA Super AMOLED  (2560×1600) display offering a wider color range, deeper contrast, truer blacks and our own adaptive display technology to provide an improved viewing experience in any environment. The Galaxy Tab S includes premium content and services that are part of the integrated Galaxy ecosystem, which makes sharing, watching, collaborating, and working on multiple devices more seamless than ever. With WatchON™ users can access the program guide directly from the Tab S, or use Tab S as a remote control. The service provides Video on Demand so users can find their favorite movies and TV shows with ease. The Galaxy Tab S is the first tablet compatible with Milk Music™ powered by Slacker, a free and ad-free radio service, offering an effortless and entertaining way to enjoy the music you love and discover unexpected music. Milk is designed with an elegant, easy-to-use interface and more than 200 stations that offer a fully customizable experience to your personal taste.

    According to what I read this thing has good specs I mean the resolution on this tablet is better than what most people’s gaming monitors have 1440p is pretty great while 4k is better I wouldn’t recommend it because of the scaling issues (my name is Robb Stark on Youtube & yeah I have been a long time subscriber too 😉 even if I don’t win thanks for the opportunity) #SaveNintendo

Thanks enobong! 😀

  • Stephen Okea

    I watch the weekly hangout discussion on my phone every saturday. The tab s form factor is very intriguing. I think the 10.5 inch form factor is a great for media consumption and productivity use . I had no idea that the tab S 10.5 has the fingerprint scanner from the galaxy phone line . That makes it a complete package in my opinion.The vibrant and adaptive super amoled 2560 by 1600 display makes it the best tablet to use in any environment at that size. I have used multi window on a galaxy phone and I can only imagine how seamless and productive mult window is on a 10.5 inch screen.Great job guys on the site and keep up the weekly guys , watching it live has become my saturday morning ritual.

And you showed how Snap Sync works.
