    Awesome Tablet

    It's an Android! Boom! We're done! To go in some of the details: Love the sleek design. The glass back side is perfect for skin traction, but doesn't matter if you'll place it in the case. The camera is your typical 1 front and 1 back, but the rear camera can record 4k with 60fps vids. Internal storage is big enough for alot of apps, but i was hoping they made it into 1 Terra to beat Apple's 500GB. Nonetheless, you can expand the storage by using the micro SD and if you buy the adapter, you can even use a USB to transfer fat32 USB type for all files. Android cannot read the NTFS formatted USB for now, but some apps you'll have to buy to make it work. Love the 4 speakers from AKG. Deep lows and clear sound is always a great addition. Processing wise... the Tab S4 is faster than previous models and its even faster than the new Tab S5e. This tab comes with the S pen and it is fun to use when you enjoy scribbling a lot. There's also alot of apps for drawing and painting digitally with few milliseconds delay. It's a compensation because the S pen doesn't use batteries. The screen itself is OLED, one of the best looking screen type in the current market. With vivid images and super deep blacks, perfect for watching movies. Screen is also 1440p, so close-up watching is not a problem. Lastly, you'll have to buy the keyboard+case to enjoy the DEX system. It is a system that imitates a PC where you can open multiple windows and have them working at the same time, perfect for multi-tasking. If you love a huge screen to work with your work and entertainment pleasures, then look no further and buy this. I would even recommend this tablet to Apple users ahaha!

    This Samsung Tab S4 Tablet is perfect for me

    Posted

    First of all, I decided to upgrade to this tablet from my Samsung Tab S2. I required more Internal Storage and updated features. I purchased this with the Samsung Keyboard Bookcover, which is a must for me because I do quite a bit of typing in Word and Excel. Because of DeX feature and using MS Office frequently on this, I rarely open my 15.6 Laptop. One thing you need to know is that you can use MS Office apps Free from the Playstore to read only but not edit unless you purchase OneDrive/Office 365 Account. This is because when you own a tablet OVER 10.1 inches, Microsoft requires this as I tried to edit in Word and Excel and could just read the files, not create or edit files. So I purchased a 9.99 monthly MS OFFICE HOME account and I have 5 tablets, 5 phones, 5 PCs to install this on and 1TB of storage, so this works for me. And I love the 1TB of storage. One more thing...If you do lots of typing, then I suggest that you purchase the Samsung Keyboard Bookcover. I am so glad I purchased this and I love typing on the Keyboard, no Bluetooth required! I highly recommend the 256gb version for this tablet because for the 100 extra, there is 4 times the Internal Storage for apps and so much more, no fear of running out of space. I highly recommend this tablet and they matching Keyboard...yes they are expensive, but you get what you pay for!

    I have been using Samsung products for the past 10 years, from TVs to cell phones, tablet... and they never let me down. I have bought a Tab S in Seoul a few years back and love its camera, pictures and other functions. My mainly use is for email, webs browser... However, it's getting old and lacks of storage. Lol. I was looking for a new one, and planning to buy a tab S5e, but, after reading all feedback both positives and negatives, the S5e only has up to 128gb max so I decided to get a Tab S4 256gb instead. (Lucky me, Best Buy is on sale $150 less). Boyz, I'm glad I did. Set up is fast and easy. 2 days after purchased, Samsung updated Android Pie. So everything is up to date. It's so fast for webs browsing and 4K pictures are stunning. I watched Netflix, Prime, Hulu live... Very happy and really enjoyed it. Would highly recommend.

    An excellent tablet, quick to setup/personalize

    A lot has been written about the Tab S4. I came to the S4 from the S3 and was pleasantly surprised. The S4 set up is quick and serialization is easy. I use Nova Prime as my launcher and MultiPicture Live Wallpaper. These 2 applications compliment the performance of the S4. Minus the finger print scanner and using the facial recognition/iris cognition is my only complaint. The recognition rate is less that 50%. The fingerprint scanner with the S3 was about 85%. However, the quest for the larger screen required the finger print scanner to loose out. Wireless reception is good. Bluetooth performance is good. No bogging down, a great picture, great sound. However, there are more than a handful of applications that do not support the S4. Pen integration is good. Note taking from the front screen is great, though more control over the pen would be nice. Security is excellent. I do hope Samsung supports the device with software updates. Otherwise: great choice.

    Another Home Run For Samsung

    Well, I've been waiting for this tablet ever since I bought the first Galaxy Tab S 10.5 back in 2014. The 10.5 widescreen ratio is what sells me on this tablet. Samsung abandoned that ratio for the S2 and S3, but brought it back for the S4. That makes it the best tablet to watch movies and read comic books. Both those things are in widescreen format. Also, you can expand memory unlike its competitor so I added a 256GB card to the already 256GB internal memory. All for $300 less (total) than the new iPad Pro which doesn't even have expandable memory. The screen is great, colors pop, and it's nice and bright. You have more control over files you put on the tablet than iPad as well. Not sure why anyone wouldn't buy an Android tablet and Samsung makes the best.

    I upgraded from a Galaxy Tab S3 and the new experience is familiar, yet much more.... more screen, more storage, and DEX allows me to be more productive. DEX gives me the look and feel of a laptop... with multiple windows (rezsizable) support. Android support for the most popular apps I use (Office, Gmail, web access)... my laptop is a thing of the past. The S-pen has also improved in it feels more substantial and additional drawing app support in Android make it my the Tab S4 my default portable device. I highly recommend this tablet as it is so much more than a tablet...

    Was looking for a multi-purpose tablet that could replace my laptop / tablet combo. This tablet did the trick. Bought the keyboard docking station with the tablet and love it. Have read about some awkwardness when the screen does not rotate on a particular web page and you have to type at a 90 degree angle. That's true, but rare. Biometric screen lock/unlock is flawless. Screen quality is legendary Samsung brilliant. Sound quality exceeded my expectations for a tablet. Where this tablet hit a home run though, is the improved S pen. It's incredible. Pressure sensitivity is very, very good. I haven't had many dots and blips randomly appearing as I had with other tablets I have had in the past. Overall, this tablet is a very strong performing tablet that has absolutely replaced my laptop.

    I love my new tablet that I got for Christmas. I had tab 4 (16 gb) 10.1. But gave to my mom after purchasing this tab. I still have my S2 (32 gb) 9.7 tablet that I also use. I love that there is more GB to this tablet. I got the 256 gb (10.5) model. They sound is superb. They screen is awesome. The sylus is a plus. I have yet to try my keyboard. But i will eventually. I have never had any problems with Samsung products. My life is filled with Samsung gadgets. Way to go Samsung.

    This is a very powerful tablet, and it runs very smoothly. Most programs work as expected with Dex when the keyboard is plugged in. The display is very nice. A few quirks, I'd like it to leave Dex automatically when I remove the keyboard, since it's completely clunky without one, so I can use it to read full screen in the right orientation, and it took a little hunting to find the option to turn off Dex. Maybe a little more expensive than it's really worth, but I use it very regularly throughout the day for a wide variety of tasks.

    The Samsung works smoothly and since I got the 256 MB version I am having no problems with it running slow or having any problems storing things.I have yet to try the USB drive on it but the attachment to make it work was relatively cheap so I am not worried. Samsung eliminated that "one way to use" plug for charging and for the USB connection so hooking up recharge and to use the USB is a lot easier. Would recommend to anyone who wants a tablet and does not an Apple or wants to use Android.

    Exceeded expectations, use it every day, charges quickly, DEX functions perfectly for my needs, new S Pen is great, replaced my original Galaxy Tab S, tablet is well made and the screen resolution is superb. Happy overall, picked up inexpensive backlit keyboard and a case from third party vendors for added protection and functionality.

    I’m a first time tablet owner so it’s been a learning curve however i really enjoy my Samsung. Love the keyboard that I purchased to go with it. I wanted a tablet that behaves like my iPhone & laptop together & this definitely does the job. The screen is slow to respond to touch with my finger & the pen at times but otherwise I have no complaints. The screen is just the right size for office tasks & games. The resolution is wonderful.

    Purchased as an assistance to my laptop duties. Great for reviewing spreadsheets doing small edits to documents and presentations. Video streaming and audio playback are great. The audio from the unit itself is great and can be heard well. Replaced my S2, Viewing size is more 16:9 and colors are more vibrant on the screen and built much better and durable. Speed is great on files a micro SD is definitely a great value to any size. Keeper!

    I had the Samsung Tab S 10.5 and waited for the 10.5 inch tablet. All the others were smaller and I just love the 10.5" to watch movies, games, emails, etc. The expanded memory helps. I got the 256GB because I got a trade in certificate at Best Buy but is more than what I need. I just love the full screen. Great size for traveling and at home when you are on the coach!

    Product does more than I expected, but the pen doesn't stay in stored casing and I frequently have to pick it up after noticing it has fallen out... They need to magnetize the pen with the storage compartment so it does fall out all the time. My pen has a few scratches and the tip is slightly bent from falling to the ground. But it still works.

    Terrific tablet, with Stylus running the Android Operating system. my phone is a Samsung Note 8. You can WiFi Direct between the two. This is nice. I use the Poetic Silicone rubber case: it is great. I use the OMOTON Aluminum Desktop Tablet Cellphone Stand with Anti-Slip Base as a nice low center of gravity stand for the tablet while in portrait mode.

    I upgraded my husband's Samsung Tab S3 whose battery died. (Disappointing because he did not overuse or abuse that device.) The screen clarity is outstanding, and it was a breeze to sync with his phone. Compared to my iPad (which has been great but is showing its age), the Galaxy tablet 4 is phenomenal. Highly recommend.

    This tablet does not disappoint. I’m still trying out and learning about the different things it can do but the fact that I can use it to develop my artistic creative through drawing, painting and designing my own custom jewelry pieces for my business.

    Would have loved for this to be more like the upgraded Note 9, with a 512GB, 8GB RAM option. Outside of that though, this is a solid improvement over the S3, with slightly better battery life and better performance, and Dex is a cool addition of you prefer a more desktop like experience.

    I had a Tab S3, which I LOVED, and unfortunately lost on a plane never to be found again. I decided to buy another one, but this was on sale and an upgrade. I do love this one as well. I miss the fingerprint verification but I like the iris/face scan as well. The images are extra crisp and bright. I'm glad I got one.
