    Flimsy and way overpriced.

    I'm a big fan of Samsung. From TV to laptops and tablets and always happy with the products until now. I just recently purchased a Tab S4 and its genuine cover. While I'm happy with the tablet, however, its cover is a disappointment. Very flimsy, feels cheap and looks cheap. The magnet is weak, couldn't hold tablet steady, it constantly collapsed, especially while using tablet in bed. Only 2 positions are available. The pen's holder sucks, regardless which end I tried to insert, pen always dropped. I guarantee you'll loose the pen if you are not paying attention to it. Compared to my Tab S cover which I'm still using it occasionally, this one is not even close or worth it. For the price close to $50 including tax, it's wayyy overpriced. I think I'll have to buy a compatible one for a 1/3 of the price and it would work much better than this. Lesson learned. Would definitely NOT RECOMMEND.

    Ok, but pen falls out; bulky; collapses during use

    This cover is generally fine. It holds the Tab S4 at the corners, rather than relying only on magnets. However, this means that you need to pry the S4 out of the case if you want to lose some bulk to hold your S4 alone. Not a lot of work, but over time could start to wear things out. Also, if you plan on installing a tempered glass protector, that installation needs to be precise, otherwise the corners of the book holder will interfere with the glass. This case tend to be rather bulky, adding some noticeable bulk and heft to the S4. Further, the kickstand is not 100% stable, so I find that the book and S4 collapse a couple of times per day. Finally, the s-pen holder is tricky. My s-pen frequently becomes dislodges when in my backpack or just carrying the book cover around. S-pens are expensive, so I sure hope not to lose one, but we'll see. Can't heartily recommend this cover, Will be waiting to see what third-party cases look like.

    COULD BE BETTER FOR THE PRICE

    THE SAMSUNG TAB S 4 BOOK CASE IS OVER ALL DECENT IT PROVIDES FULL COVER FOR THE GLASS BACK,WHICH BY THE WAY IS A FINGER PRINT MAGNET AND COVER FOR THE FRONT SCREEN OVERALL. AND THAT'S IT. FOR THE ABSORBENT PRICE OF $69 BUCKS WHICH I THINK IS INSANE CONSIDERING THE PRICE OF THE TABLET, IT SHOULD BE INCLUDED FOR FREE. WHEN USED IN THE LANDSCAPE POSITION FOR WATCHING VIDEOS. YOU HAVE TO BE CAREFUL BECAUSE OF THE TABLETS WEIGHT AND THE WAY THE COVER IS DESIGNED OFFERS VERY LITTLE SUPPORT. THE TABLET IS HEFTY AND HAS A TENDENCY TO TOPPLE BACKWARDS WITH THE SLIGHTEST TOUCH. IF YOU DECIDE TO USE THE TABLET HAND HELD THERE IS NO MAGNET OR ANYTHING TO SECURE THE FRONT COVER FLAP ONCE YOU FOLD IT BACKWARDS. ITS JUST THERE LOOSE AND SHIFTING SIDE TO SIDE. A REAL LOUSY IMPLEMENTATION FOR SUCH AN EXPENSIVE BOOK COVER. THE FAMOUS TAB S 2 , TAB S 3 BOOKCASE COVERS ARE FANTASTIC, SAMSUNG NEEDS TO BRING BACK THE MAGNETIC CONCEPT USED IN THOSE COVERS. CONSIDERING THE FUNCTIONALITY AND PRICE POINT WITH THE AVAILABLE OPTIONS ONLINE YOU CAN DO MUCH BETTER FOR ABOUT $20 BUCKS I'M RETURNING MINE ASAP

    Improved over s3 case

    Posted
    Robin

    Ive been using the case for several days now and Im completely satisfied with my purchase. I was afraid it would have the magnetic "attachment" aspect of the s3 case that never worked well. This has a traditional clip in case that is tried and true and works great. The added s pen holder is a welcomed bonus that can easily be removed. Pros - Has auto wake sleep feature when opening and closing the case. - S pen holder holds the pen very tight and securely. - 2 different stand options that work well - Tab is protected. Case protects the front and back of the pad as well as the corners if dropped. - Has a good texture for grip Cons - No way to secure the cover flap when folded behind like the s2 case. - Price is a little high for a case. Although I feel the tab s2 had the ultimate bookcover case ever invented, this version is light years ahead of the s3 model which I returned after a few days of use.

    Very classy looking case. Doesn't prop securely

    Just got this today, and it's a gorgeous looking case. Replaced a generic case that held in place via corner rubber bands. This just looks slick. Holds great, and the pen seems secure, however I can see it becoming loose over time, as there is no clipping to hold it in place. Attempts to fold it into a stand in landscape mode just flopped under the natural weight of the tablet. Portrait mode stood just fine . Overall, it's a beautiful case, but with the two issues I stated, at $60+ I'm honestly not seeing the MSRP reflecting the actual value. $40 or less, and this would be a 5 star case.

    Personally, I don't see why some others are so upset about this case, aside from the price point. Honestly, I don't agree with the price point; and the only reason I bought it was because it was on sale for $50 and I had $15 in rewards. So for my price of $35, its fantastic. Case looks and feels great, and the pen holder is a nice touch too. For those who said the pen falls out, all you have to do is push the pen in until you fee/hear a click, then boom. Stays in and doesn't move. Overall, a good buy, so long as you get it on sale.

    Worst Samsung case I've ever had

    I always spend the money on the same brand cover as the new tablet I purchase. In the past have been extremely satisfied. NOT SO WITH THIS ONE ! Tablet collapses with only slight pressure. Angle is not good for viewing in your lap. The s- pen falls out of the holder more than it stays in . Luckily the holder is removable. It also blocks the speaker so sound is uneven. Can not believe that Samsung feels that this is a product that they are proud to put their name on ! Will be looking for a universal case to substitute for this one.

    Decent Cover with problems

    I didn't want to spend the money on the keyboard case for the S4 and there were no other cases available when I got the tablet, so I bought this case. It is functional and lightweight. I have two problems with it: 1. When you fold the cover back to form a stand, it is not very stable, 2. The pen holder on the left side blocks one of the speakers. Hopefully, other companies will come up with more functional cases soon. Until then, this will have to do.

    Great book cover

    Great protection, sturdy and looks sleek. I also have a tempered glass protector on it and everything fits perfectly. I did remove the Pen Holder as I never use it so it looks uniform. This cover is the closest to perfect since the book covers of the Original Tab S and S2. The reason for 4 stars is obviously the price. It should really cost around the $40 range, not $70. Luckily I got this a little cheaper by using BB coupons and my Reward Points.

    Very nice little case

    As the title says this is a very nice little case! It has a magnet in the end of the flap which is quite useful. It serves to secure the flap in both "standing" positions & while closed. Having the S-pen caddy is a nice addition, those pens can go missing w/ a roommate who loses theirs!!! Anyways at the current online price I definitely say get one, I got mine in-store at full price... I'm glad B.B. has a price match that applies to themselves too!! Take care all! (^.^)/

    Good But Could Be Better

    The cover is well constructed and works adequately to protect the tablet. It can also function as a stand. I am rating as 3 stars for two reasons. One is that the pen holder does not keep the Samsung Galaxy Tab S4 pen securely in the holder. The other is that the cover does not have the features of some of the competition, such as opening the cover to wake up the tablet. I recommend but just barely recommend.

    Good as far as it goes, but room for improvement

    The standard Samsung Galaxy Tab S 4 cover holds and protects the tablet well. However, it appears to be cheaply made and the stylis holder is awkwardly attached. Unfortunately there is no other cover that works better. All of the OEM covers are not specifically made for the S4, so you have to make adjustments so they protect and hold the tablet well. Other than the cover being flimsy, it serves its purpose as designed.

    Fantastic case!!

    I love the case!! It hold onto the tablet in a very firm manner, which is better than the previous models, which only held on by magnets. The pen holder is VERY convenient and makes keeping up with it so much easier. The prop position is well placed as you can have it sitting up for viewing, or rotate it to lie more flat for work. It's lightweight and very thin, giving a solid grip and professional design. Amazing case for the Tab S4!!

    The cover for Galaxy Tab S4 protects my tablet as it should. The availability of the pen is very convenient and the tablet is held firmly in place by 4 corner tabs. However, I liked the cover on my Tab A a little better especially when I had it propped up on my lap. It didn't collapse as this one does if you move around. I also think it was a bit pricey.

    Good for protection

    Descent protection for the product. the Pen holder is very basic. The pen eventually starts to slip out more often. There is not a lot of resistance so it slides out in the backpack or briefcase. it would have been better with Elastic band such as some other products. It protects my product but I do have to manage the pen location and keep an eye on it.

    I really like this case so far it has proven to be sturdy and strong I've dropped it maybe once and I see no damages. I also like the fact that it has a stylus holder. If you're looking for a case you will find that not many cases for Samsung S4 tablet come with a stylus holder but this one does and it makes it a bonus.

    Bought this to go with my Tab S4. If fits my Tab S4 perfectly. It protects the corners amid bank. One minor problem is the book cover only had one good way to support the tablet in streams mode. With the tablet in the lowest support mode, it's hard to reach the volume & power button because it is under the tablet in the sport mode.

    nice design, but needs a better hold mechanism

    The design is nice and lightweight. But one of the key purposes is to allow the device to sit on a table. That requires that you "roll" the back into a triangle on the back of the device. There is no magnet (or not a strong enough one) to keep that triangle held... causing the device to fall

    Step down from Tab S3 case

    Mediocre
    • My Best Buy® Elite Plus MemberElite Plus Member

    Compared to the Tab S3 case, this is a step down. It's a clip in case so less convenient than the previous magnetic case and it's very difficult to remove. Plus the magnetic part in the stand is very weak so it loses its hold with a light touch. Not sure it's worth the money except for the fact that it's the only option.

    I bought this at the same time as the Samsung - Galaxy Tab S4 and it is built sturdy and fits my tablet just right. It doesn't flop around like my previous cover did. When I open the cover the tablet is activated and it shuts down when I close. I haven't had any problems with the pin holder, it fits tightly and doesn't slip out.
