Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 Review

Score: 75.2 / 100

Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 is a brilliantly made Android portable tablet released back in 2017, equipped with an extremely fast 2.15 gigahertz Quad-Core CPU, a large 9.7" screen, and 2 cameras, a 13 mega-pixels back side camera and a 5 mega-pixels front camera.

This tablet is just 0.24" thick, making its way into the thinnest tablets podium. This tablet only has 9.34" long and 6.65" wide, but it's still able to fit a a 9.7" screen. Regarding its design, this tablet is made with Glass . Samsung has made a great job making this tablet weight just 15.13 ounces. Samsung is offering the Tab S3 in 2 colors, black and silver.

Samsung designed this device with a interesting 9.7 inches screen, and a resolution of 1536 x 2048 , making everything look very good.

The Tab S3 is equipped with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 MSM8996 system chip, holding a very powerful 2150 megahertz Quad-Core processing unit with a big 4 GB of RAM memory. This tablet has an awesome 32 GB internal storage memory and an SD memory slot, enough to install lots of applications, games, photos and videos without having to worry about filling it.

This device is equipped with two cameras, a 13 mega-pixels back facing camera and a 5 mega-pixels front camera. It is also able to shoot videos up to 3840x2160 (4K) at 30 frames per second.

This tablet uses a 6000 mAh big capacity non-replaceable battery providing this device an extremely long battery duration. An issue to consider is that the Tab S3's battery is non-replaceable so you can't buy a new battery when it begins to live shorter, even though with its 6000 mAh you will probably replace this tablet before it becomes a real problem.

This tablet counts with Wi-Fi connection (and it can provide it to other devices as a mobile hotspot) and 4G LTE-A ultra fast connectivity. The Tab S3 doesn't use a sim card, because it doesn't support GSM services.

The Tab S3 also comes with a couple useful characteristics such as Fingerprint Sensor, Bluetooth and GPS Geolocation, and plenty of sensors like Light Sensor, Accelerometer, Gyroscope and Compass.

This tablet is priced about 240 dollars, which is rather expensive for this type of tablet. If you want a portable tablet for gaming, will use it for work, you love taking pictures or want a social tablet, this tablet is probably a great choice for you.
