Wi-Fi Only (SM-T800)     See other variants reviews Score: 8.47/10

Samsung Galaxy Tab S 10.5 is a totally amazing device released back in 2014, counting with a large 10.5" display, a high speed Octa-Core CPU (they are really a Quad-Core ticking at 1900 MHz and another Quad-Core at 1300 MHz), and two cameras, an 8 megapixels back-facing camera and a 2.1 mega-pixels front side camera.

The Samsung Galaxy Tab S 10.5 is just 0.26 inches thick, making it one of the thinnest portable tablets nowadays. This tablet is quite a compact portable tablet, taking into consideration it features a 10.5 inches screen and it's just 9.74" long and 6.98 inches wide. The Tab S 10.5 is available in 2 different colors, black and white. Samsung did an excellent job making this device weight only 16.4 ounces.

Samsung decided to design this tablet using a very powerful Octa-Core processing unit (as a matter of fact it's really a Quad-Core ticking at 1900 megahertz and an extra Quad-Core at 1.3 GHz), bundled in the Exynos 5 Octa 5420 system chip and a big 3 GB of RAM. The Tab S 10.5 has a 32 GB big internal storage and a slot for external memory cards, more than enough to install hundreds of applications without even thinking about how much storage capacity is left.

Samsung equipped the Samsung Galaxy Tab S 10.5 with a very good 10.5-inches screen, and a 1600 x 2560 resolution, making everything look very nice. Its screen uses Super AMOLED capacitive technology, and can detect multi touch gestures.

The Samsung Galaxy Tab S 10.5 is equipped with two cameras, an 8 MP back side camera and a 2.1 mega-pixels front-facing camera. This tablet also films 1920x1080 Full HD videos at 30 frames per second. Additionally, this portable tablet's camera also features lots of valuable features like flash, fast burst mode, auto-focus, HDR mode, digital image stabilization and geo tagging.

This tablet counts with a 7900 mAh long lasting replaceable battery, enough to provide this tablet with a great battery duration.

The Tab S 10.5 counts with wi-fi connection (and it can share it with other devices around, acting as a wireless modem or router). This tablet works with a Micro SIM card for GSM connection.

The Tab S 10.5 also includes a handful of cool characteristics as Biometric fingerprint, Bluetooth (for communication with other bluetooth portable tablets, computers and accessories) and GPS Navigation, and plenty of sensors like Light Sensor, Accelerometer, Gyroscope and Compass.

This device is being sold for around $ 269, quite expensive for a device this level. The Samsung Galaxy Tab S 10.5 is definitely very appropiate for you no matter whether you you love taking pictures, want a tablet to play games, will use it mostly for social networks and internet browsing or want a tablet for work.
