So many feature upgrades from the Tab S-4. The S6 has a display resolution of 2560 x 1600, octa-core processor, 256 GB memory, audio is AKG with 4 speakers, one in each corner. S-Pen, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth all standard. The Tab can also accommodate an external memory up to 512 GB. The Tab performs as a 2 in 1 with the optional keyboard case. You can then use it as a tablet or as a laptop. The Dex software will make it look just like a Windows desktop computer screen. With the slim design it’s easy to take along on your travels or school. The display is beautiful, and the colors are true to color and crisp. The on-screen fingerprint scanner is nice, if you do not want to use the scanner you can simply use a passcode instead. An update from the Iris scanner on the S4, the fingerprint scanner is easier to use. The speakers are improved with more bass. You have four speakers on the Tab and the sound clarity is excellent. The S-Pen is a nice improvement with it being magnetic. Whether you are writing, pointing, drawing or doodling the S-Pen is comfortable to hold and use. Drawing with the S-Pen is cool. The added addition to the S-Pen is called air actions, which are commands activated by waving the S Pen around the air, does take time to get use to that, unless you are a music conductor! The battery life is good, I can get about 14 hours of heavy use before recharging. The audio Atmos is amazing and clear. Conquering the world in a game is super on the Tab. Working, surfing the net, shopping, watching a movie or playing on the Tab is marvelous. The Samsung Galaxy Tab S-6 is the most sought after in our house. Of course, you have your normal buttons on the Tab, on/off and volume and there is a USB-C-port. Be aware there is no headphone jack, for some that may be a negative, but with the way tech is going there’s no need for one since everyone goes for the wireless headphones. The Dex system is easy to use, great for multitasking. I can have Netflix running and bring up a web page and more at the same time. Watching a movie on the 10.5-inch Samsung Galaxy Tab S-6 shows beautifully. You can view You-Tube at 1444 P which is one of the best. The S-6 has an aluminum back, they got rid of the glass back which the S-4 has. The Bezel is very small, just enough to allow you to hold the tablet and see the whole screen. The S-pen fits right in, it’s no longer an afterthought. Notification if the S Pen is not placed back in the right spot to charge. The battery life is very good more than 14+ hours. Fast charge c port gets you back in play quickly. The transparency option is cool for keeping notes while working or playing. Game booster (kills all other apps, so just the game is running) is a nice feature. It does seem as though Samsung has put a big focus on gamers. Fortnight at 30 fps no problem at all, no lagging.
Of course, there is a camera on the Tab. You have a multi camera set-up which means a 13 MP F 2.0 main sensor is paired with a 5-megapixel F/2.2 ultra-wide back-up, impressive. The secondary camera is great for wide angle shots. There is an 8 MP camera in the front, which is good for video calls or selfies. I still prefer the smaller smart phones for picture taking, but for occasional photos the Tab is great.
Overall a very fast, great looking screen, able to play demanding games without any lag, great expandable storage, a case that holds the S-Pen and a large keyboard with a track pad. Some people will love the Tab S-6 and others will just like it a whole lot.
Hello Hello to all my loyal fellow BestBuy shoppers & fans around the world and locally here in the very great nation USofA If you are reading my Review, then this only means that you are deciding whether to purchase this very amazing 6th Generation of it's kind that was engineered by the greatest South Korean minds of all Tablets; and their brand name is... "SAMSUNG". On the other hand, and just a FYI: first, if you are a fan & have excellent knowledge of the Android Operating System, then take it from me, do not settle for another different brand name while shopping & chosing for your soon-to-be Adult-own & usage only tablet that will soon cost you near a whopping 1,000 US-Dollars, this Samsung Tab S6 is "King of all tablets", period; second, if you are a fan & have excellent knowledge of Android's rival, then there is only one brand that your money can buy, and as a full-grown Adult like me too, you, obviously, already know what that brand name, currently, is, period.
Moreover & leaving the introduction & all Great Memories regarding the "2" biggest Monopoly tablet brands of their own company behind us all, I will now turn to elaborate on the technical details, in my very short and my very own opinion & words, about this particular tablet, "internally & literally".
1) The term "Rich and Poor" is define like this, by me, regarding tablets and smartphones. We humans, the family that we are born in to, will only be a Rich family or a Poor family. By telling you this, I trust that you already know what I mean. Now, as I switch over and apply this very same analogy to this Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 tablet, Samsung's very intellectual engineers have also created, both, a Rich model and a Poor model. This is my definition of "Rich & Poor", now, as compared to us humans: this Poor model is the "crippled" version, having only 4GB RAM and only 128GB Internal Storage, because as a human being, if a person is born in to a Poor family, he/she will never be able to afford all the very wonderfully created and manufactured materials in this world, nor able to go or "do" everything he/she wishes; now, this Rich model (the one I bought) is the "fully created" version, having a whopping 6GB RAM and a whopping 256GB Internal Storage, because as a human being, if a person is born in to a Rich family, his/her parents already live in a mansion, already have a private plane, and later, he/she can afford any material things in this world, and can go vaca anywhere and anytime he/she wishes.
2) My secret to you, while reading my Review this far, and at the same time, stopped by and shop here, I do fully "Recommend" you to buy this Rich model, and after you have bought it, please remember to Love it, Use it with care, and most important of all, Protect it as you would protect your own "2" eyes and your "head". Please please, for Protection, do not forget to buy a screen protector from a 3rd party vendor and a case cover. Regarding the case cover, I also "Recommend" you to just support SAMSUNG, once again, and buy this tablet's very own and engineered Keyboard+Track Pad cover.
Now, as you can see as to why earlier I've mentioned that this tablet will cost you near a Grand (after tax & recycle fee) is because the next "2" things are really a necessity, if you really wish to protect your very costly tablet.
Now, knowing the total cost and value of this tablet, this is why earlier I've mentioned that this tablet should mainly be used by Adults. Ahem, there are "kids" tablets being sold for under 50 Dollars. That is the value for, ahem, kids.
Conclusively closing, I, HMONGsanBER, do recommend this tablet to all you BestBuy shoppers.
Most importantly, I do solemnly swear in the sight of GOD (right-hand raised) that I have not been paid by BestBuy to buy & write this Review, nor affiliated with BestBuy in any way, shape or form, and that I have bought this "Rich" tablet with my very own hard-earned money during this COVID-19 pandemic and have written this Review in fairness... from my very own experiences of usage, opinion, heart, and most important of all, Love :) :) :)
PS: Don't forget to click on my "3" SS to see my exact Model & Up-to-date Version :) Peace & I'm out...
This Samsung Tab S6 is awesome tablet with high-end specification. It is great for Media, Gaming. Performance is awesome, I replaced my laptop to this Tab S6 with keyboard. I won’t carry laptop all the place, just carry this lightweight tablet.
Dex mode works really awesome with keyboard. I described review below each part of this Tab S6. Expensive tablet but worth to buy.

Dex mode works great
Slim and lightweight
Call and Messaging Communicate with Samsung phone to Tablet
S-Pen isn’t flush with the back of the tablet
Design of tab is very thin and lightweight. Tablet looks shine and aluminum body look rich. Touch feels really good. Tablet right hand side have bixby/power button & volume Up/Down button. And bottom side have Type-C Port. This Samsung Tab S6 doesn’t have 3.5mm headphone jack. This is major weakness of this Tablet so need to buy separate USB type-C headphone adapter for using 3.5mm Headphone jack or using wireless headphone. Back side have S-Pen Magnetic holder but when S-pen attached doesn’t flush on a desk some out on tablet. This feel uncomfortable.
This S6 Tab have snapdragon 855 processes with 8GB RAM, apps runs very smooth. I tried couple of games like PUBG & Asphalt 8 Racing game. It’s very smooth no lagging. Online videos like YouTube , Netflix plays really good with no lagging.
Internet browser working very fast when I opened multiple tabs. I am facing my old tablet lock the screen while playing games and unlock the tablet its take time. But this Samsung S6 tab. Its very fast unlock while playing games.
Battery Life :
Samsung Tab S6 has a 7,040 mAh battery capacity. I test this full 100% charger full day use. Its reduced to 35% end of day. So full day of battery in one 100% charging. This is really good.
And this tablet have fast charging option. So tablet charging very fast.
Samsung Tab S6 has a 10.5” size of screen, , 2560 x 1600-pixel Super AMOLED display can get very bright and sharp screen. Gaming & video clarity is really good. On screen fingerprint sensor working nice.
I really love this S-Pen. very smooth to write on tablet and holding finger is good. S-Pen is wireless charged. S-Pen used to writing notes . and take screenshot and edit, etc. in this S-Pen App. S-Pen Button remotely function to capture photos and control videos and more without touching tablet. Also have Air action feature this is waving the pen around the air to volume up/down and next/previous and more..
Sound Quality :
This tablet have 4 AKG-Tuned Speakers at 4 corners with Dolby ATOM sound , I watched MI3 movie on this tablet Superb sound Quality, Clear voice. And no need external Speaker Plenty of sound in this tablet default. Gaming Sound experience is really awesome. I realize the great surrounding effects while playing games.
I didn't realize this tablet have 13MB & 5MB dual camera. Photo clarity is good. And front facing camera is 8MP its support face recognition. video calling works great. I rarely take photos on my tablet, Mostly I used my mobile or DSLR. I am doesn’t worry about Tab S6 camera features. But good improvement on camera.
Best High-end tablet I ever used, best performance, best display, great sound quality, good battery capacity. Recommended to buy this tablet for everyone.
This tablet has a lot going for it. It can be used as a computer (Samsung Dex), the cameras are decent, battery life is great, and the performance is solid. I was surprised to learn that the tablet had an in-screen fingerprint sensor. The fingerprint sensor works even with a screen protector on the device.
If you purchase the device, I would recommend a Unicorn Beetle case.
When I first heard that Samsung was releasing a new Tab S6, I was very intrigued! I have been using Samsung Tab S4 for a year now and its performance has been very good. I could only imagine what Tab S6 would bring to the table. First of all, Samsung Tab S6 shines and I can say that it is one of the best Android tablets. Samsung has perfected its form factor and slimmed it down even more compared to Tab S4 and instead of glass back it now has a beautiful aluminum cover. It is a real pleasure to hold this tablet in one hand and use the supplied S-Pen which has also been redesigned and sports bluetooth. The first thing that everyone will notice is of course its gorgeous vibrant OLED display. It is bright, crisp and well balanced in color saturation. Media consumption on this tablet has been a joy to use, games like Asphalt, Fortnite are meant to be played on a display like that. This tablet supports HDR and Dolby Atmos and makes movie watching experience absolutely a must whether you are on a plane or a subway, this tablet will not disappoint. Its battery life has been great as well and lasts me all day. There is only one negative and it is missing a headphone jack. I was a bit disappointed that it was gone, especially on a tablet where there is a lot of space. I know bluetooth headphones are available to me, however using wired headphones is simpler and it does not require them to be charged or paired. Performance on this tablet is simply amazing, I have Tab S6 with 8GB of RAM and 256GB of storage and with its latest 855 processor from Qualcomm (same one that comes on Note 10) this tablet runs circles around many other tablets that are currently on the market. Web pages load in an instant, videos on YouTube never stutter thanks to great wireless chipset, Bluetooth 5.0 makes sure I never lose connection. This tablet is fast, snappy and graphics are butter smooth! Samsung has also included an S-Pen - a very handy pen that is capable of a lot of things. First of all, it is comfortable to hold, reminds me a bit of a carpenter pencil. It can easily attach to the side of the tablet or can be placed in a special groove on the back of the tablet for charging. It is very precise and drawing sketches is fun, making notes is also easy and your handwritten notes can be converted to text! You can also use gestures and take pictures remotely or browse through your Gallery without touching the screen. Love it. I received this tablet for a discount for my honest review.
The tablet itself is great. But the keyboard case by Samsung fell off after a month and bestbuy would not refund me. I've never had a case that only last 1 month! It's a magnet sticky pad. And it does not stick! Horrible product and not well thought out
I have the iPad mini 5 and a tablet galaxy s2.
I dreaded buying this because of the larger form factor. Plus the cost of the device. Ouch. Bestbuy gave me a birthday discount so i pulled the trigger.
The display is crisper and sharper than the iPad mini 5 or S2. It has 4 speakers. The small bezel gives you more real estate for the screen.
Samsung Dex is perfect for my use. I have connected the device to a Dell USB-C port replicator and using an extended monitor. Attach a keyboard and mouse and you are set. I have mine setup with an apple bluetooth keyboard and a wireless Logitech mouse. You cannot use the internal speakers when connected. You need to either connect a Bluetooth headset or use a usb headset connected to the port replicator.
Also, While connected with samsung dex, you can use the tablet as another device to view other items or apps.
I have since left my MSI GP63 laptop at home and use this as my work laptop. Battery life is great. I am currently at 89 percent and estimated life is 44 hours.
The stylus is a lot shorter than the Apple Pencil but has more functionality. I use the volume controls - “Press the button to swipe up or swipe down for volume.”
I have taken some videos and pictures with the camera and I’m not a camera buff, so i can’t really tell the difference between apple and samsung.
I recommend this tablet.

The Galaxy Tab S6 is everything that a good tablet needs to be. It's sleek, it's functional, and most importantly, it's Android's best bet at coming up with any serious competition to the iPad. But should you really get it instead of any ofFull Review
A:AnswerAfter having mostly Samsung devices for over 8 years, the most internal storage available, the better. You can't use the memory cards as internal storage, and not all apps can be moved to the SD card. Hope this helps!
A:AnswerThe 256GB models should all have 8GB of RAM regardless of color. This is most likely a mistake when they entered the specs.
The tablet does NOT support wireless charging as the back is made of metal not glass and would interfere with the wireless charging coils.
The tablet does not have a IP68 rating and therefore is NOT water resistant/proof.
Hulu plays just fine and the tablet DOES have GPS support.
A:AnswerYes - BUT.... Get the USB C to 3.5mm adapter. I just bought this one the other day - on sale 7.99 (still is) and it works great. NO SAD! :o)
A:AnswerIt includes the S Pen which is a similar stylus. Notebook 9 Pro has an Active Pen which is similar but different feature set for each. The Tab S6 S Pen has a rechargeable battery that charges when attached to the back of tablet in a little groove magnetically. With the Tab S6 S Pen you can launch shortcut features with the button on the side like accessing a quick notes app like you would with an Active Pen. But with Tab S6 it also gives you some Bluetooth functions where you can launch apps or control media or your camera from a distance. And you can use gestures too, so if you swipe up or down while holding button at a distance it does different things.
A:AnswerThey should but I do not recommend it. Google "Best Buy trade in" to go to their trade in website. They will give you a gift card but it is very very low value, you are better off selling it privately.
