Samsung Galaxy Tab S 10.5 is an incredibly powerful Android tablet launched many years ago, counting with a very fast Octa-Core processor (actually, it has a Quad-Core speeding at 1900 MHz and an extra Quad-Core running at 1.3 GHz), a large 10.5 inches multi-touch capacitive screen, an 8 MP back camera and a 2.1 megapixels front-facing camera. That's all? No, it's only the beginning of this extreme review.

The Tab S 10.5 is powered by a Exynos 5 Octa 5420 system chip, which holds an extremely fast Octa-Core processing unit (although they are really a Quad-Core running at 1.9 GHz and another Quad-Core running at 1.3 gigahertz) and a huge 3 GB RAM. A good point of this tablet is the 32 GB inmense internal memory and an external SD slot, which allows the user to install tons of apps, games, pictures and videos without even thinking about filling it.

This device has an inspired design, with a thickness of just 0.26 inches. This tablet is a very compact tablet, taking into consideration it features a 10.5" screen and it's only 9.74" long. Samsung sells this tablet in two different colors: black and white. This tablet feels much lighter than what you would expect from a portable tablet this size.

The Samsung Galaxy Tab S 10.5 includes a interesting 1600 x 2560 10.5" screen, making everything look vivid. Its screen uses Super AMOLED capacitive technology, and can detect multi touch gestures.

The Tab S 10.5 has two cameras, an 8 megapixels back-facing camera and a 2.1 mega-pixels front facing camera. This tablet also shoots videos in Full HD 1920x1080 at 30 frames per second. To complete the camera, it also features a high number of great characteristics: auto-focus, flash, digital image stabilization, fast burst mode, HDR mode and geo tagging.

This tablet features a 7900 mAh incredible battery providing the Tab S 10.5 a marvelous battery life.

This tablet provides wi-fi connectivity (which it can provide to other devices acting as a wireless modem or router) and LTE (4G) high performance connection type. The Tab S 10.5 works with a Micro SIM card to connect to GSM networks.

The Tab S 10.5 also includes a handful of interesting characteristics such as Fingerprint unlock, Bluetooth and GPS Navigation, and lots of sensors like Light Sensor, Accelerometer, Gyroscope and Compass.

This tablet costs about $ 189, which is not very cheap for this kind of device. No matter if you want a tablet device for gaming, want it to take plenty of photos, want a work portable tablet or want a social portable tablet, you will definitely be very happy with this portable tablet.
