The Samsung Galaxy Tab S 8.4
is a lovely tablet with an outstanding 8.4-inch, 2,560 x 1,600 Super AMOLED screen. It’s perfect for watching videos on, delivering deep black levels and rich, vibrant colours. It’s stunning.
It’s super-thin and light, at just 6.6mm and 294g, though it still feels solid. While we don’t love the plastic build, the dimpled, soft-touch finish feels nice in the fingers. Its size is also a big plus, making it easy to hold in one hand – this is definitely commuter-friendly.
There’s a few bonus features on board too. These include SideSync 3.0, which lets you control your Samsung phone from the tablet, an 8-megapixel rear camera with LED flash and a fingerprint scanner. However, the latter doesn’t work as well as it should.
Performance is nice and slick, so you’ll be able to play most high-end games on it, while the 4,900mAh battery will get you 12 hours of mixed use between charges. Well worth £250. Price:
