    It's a really cool tablet that I use for drawing. The only issue is the the button placement of the stylus

    Bought for work, and it does everything I need. Only issue involves clicking buttons on one work site, but that's negligible. Bought a hardshell case with hand grips which made this perfect to carry around.

    Got me an iPad Pro a few months ago because I got sick of having to buy a new dang Android tablet every two years just to have the most recent Android version. If it weren't for the guys on XDA doing stuff for free that MULTIBILLION $$ can't do I'd have given up on Android a while back. So with the iPad I though I had the best "Google" tablet with Chrome and all the essential Google data farming programs I use. I was wrong. I could't not having a back button and having to go to the top left to go back. No WebM support. All the browsers felt like some kind of version of safari, even Firefox. On Android the browsers are a dumbed down version of the desktop versions. On Apple they're dumbed even further down. So, back to this tablet. Big screen, fast processors, nice speakers, almost iPad like standby (which stinks big time since Oreo update on my s2. You have to kill wifi on standby or it drains quickly), and a nice pen. Scrolling is responsive as most my other Android tablets have been - until a year or so afterwards. Rooting is easy as can be with an unlocked bootloader and AshyX (whom I've donated for every tablet he's tweaked TWRP for that I own). Samsung has included quite a few extras that almost make rooting not worth it, but with Magisk you can hide root and still enjoy some of Sammy's extras. The routine are very good but not Tasker good. They can set up simple "macros" based on time, place, wifi, etc. Tasker just takes it a few steps further but requires root. As usual AMOLED screen is gorgeous. There are some LCD screens that look nice, but none look as good as an AMOLED. I really should have gotten this on release date not have wasted the money on the iPad Pro and Pencil. I'm an android guy and I just can't give up some of my freedom - at the cost of my privacy (and I hate that trade-off). I'm pretty sure in two years I'm gonna be whining about how slow and choppy this is, and that I'm not getting updates any more because that's how Samsung operates. Great hardware poor as heck support.

    What I like about this tablet: 1. @@@@@@@ Screen Quality. Bright colors. 2. @@@@@@@ The battery lasts all day. 3. @@@@@@@ Omnidirectional USB-C port. 4. @@@@@@@ Touch pen capable. Pressure sensitive and works with most hand-writing apps. 5. @@@@@@@ Light weight. 6. @@@@@@@ Good sound quality with 4 stereo speakers. 7. @@@@@@@ Dedicated headphone jack. 8. @@@@@@@ "Dex" mode capable. 9. @@@@@@@ Capable of connecting to an external display via USB-C port. 10. @@@@@@@ Can be paired with Bluetooth devices such as a mouse and keyboard. 11. @@@@@@@ Compatible aftermarket keyboard covers. 12. @@@@@@@ Migrating apps and data from one tablet to another, using the provided Smart Switch app, is very easy. @@@@@@@@ I wish PC's were this easy). 13. @@@@@@@ The wide aspect ratio is good for watching videos and movies. 14. @@@@@@@ Works great for reading e-magazines. What I don't like: 1. @@@@@@@ I think they should have made the back out of aluminum instead of glass. 2. @@@@@@@ A bit pricey. 3. @@@@@@@ Glossy screen is highly reflective. Although this is typical of most tablets. Would be great if they made it with an anti-glare screen. 4. @@@@@@@ No fingerprint biometric reader. Not sure about this feature: The navigation buttons are now located on the display and no longer the bezel. This allows for a larger screen, but less tactile feel.

    Best Android Tab on the Market

    Pros: Thin bezels No home button so can be used in either orientation Better face detection technology (iris scanner) Larger battery S-Pen included Quad speakers with Dolby Atmos support 64GB Internal Storage (expandable up to 400Gb) Samsung DEX OS Cons: Not a huge spec upgrade from Tab S3 Keyboard Cover not included No Wireless Charging For reference, I've owned almost every flagship Samsung Android Tab since 2014 starting with the Tab Pro, then the Tab S 10.5, and the Tab S2 9.7 back in 2015. My favorite of all time was the original Tab S which came out in the summer of 2014. What I loved about it was that it was landscape oriented with an AMOLED 16:10 display with rich colors that made watching movies or reading comic books an absolute joy. Unfortunately, it became outdated and at some point I upgraded to a Tab S2, which with it's 9.7in screen in 4:3 aspect ratio seemed a bit like a downgrade. Last year I upgraded to the S3 which was mostly the same... But... Fast forward to 2018 and the new Galaxy Tab S4 goes back to the 16:10 aspect ratio with an even better AMOLED screen with HDR support. The thin bezels and lack of home buton makes the latest Galaxy Tab entry the best one yet. Now, you can use the device in any orientation without the physical buttons being in an awkward position. So far I've not had an issue with face detection, which also works in both orientations. It seems to work in a similar way as Windows Hello on newer laptops that support it. The home, back, and recents buttons now sit down at the bottom of the screenas virtual buttons no matter the orientation. In fact, without physical buttons or a Samsung logo, it's hard to determine which physical position the tablet actually is in. The camera, like the Tab S3 sits flush with the back of the unit. It's sleek for sure. When using an app, the on-screen buttons disappear but can be found again with a simple swipe up from the bottom. The same swipe from the home screen brings up the applications menu. To me, these gestures feel so much more natural and fluid than pressing a physical button. Performance wise the tablet is actually not much difference than the Tab S3. It has a bit newer and faster Snapdragon CPU on a 10nm die, twice the storage space, the same camera, same quad speakers tuned by AKG, and the same 4GB of RAM. The Tab S4 supports Bluetooth 5.0 and the selfie camera is actually 8MP now instead of 5MP. Both support microSD expansion. . but the Tab S4 allows you to go to 400GB. Oh and in case you were wondering, yes it still has the ol' trusty 3.5 headphone jack. Unforunately, there's no wireless charging. In my testing performance was solid, I didn't see a hiccup, even when using Dex. The OLED screen of course is vibrant and the sound quality superb for a tablet. Other than that, there's DeX. Samsung's DeX take's a newer feature of Android, called multi-window support and enhances it to give you a true desktop experience. In reality, it actually works fairly well. You can open apps in windowed mode, resize them, drag them to different positions on the screen, or click the full-size icon to expand them to full screen, just like a desktop. Most apps work really well in this mode. Chrome is so good for example, that I forget I'm using the mobile version of Chrome and not the one on my PC. There are some apps that don't work at all, such as Lastpass, and Netflix launched but I had only sound, no video. DeX will work either on the tablet screen itself or you can hook up an external monitor (both HDMI and DisplayPort worked for me) to get a truer desktop experience. The S4 also supports bluetooth keyboard and mice. you can also pair a bluetooth keyboard and mouse. But, one of the coolest features I found was the fact that you can use the tablet itself as a large glass trackpad. This worked really well, and felt completely natural. Overall, is it worth it to upgrade from the Tab S3, probably not, unless you just can't stand larger bezels or the home button/fingerprint reader. However, if you're upgrading from the Tab S, Tab S2 or one of the cheaper Samsung Tabs then the Tab S4 could be a great buy. If you're looking at the S4 as a replacement to a laptop then things get a little muddier. Sure, DeX is a nifty feature, but it's not anything new. Windows has had both a tablet and full desktop experience mode for years now. DeX only works on one tablet right now. The other thing to consider is that if you want to use this a as a laptop you will probably want the keyboard attachment which is going to add a $150 to your total cost. At which point you're well past the price of very capable and affordable traditional laptops. In the end though, it's the software that makes the difference, and that is largely in Google and the Android community's hands. On the hardware front this is a very solid and easily the best Android tablet you can buy.
