Samsung Galaxy Tab S7+ First Look Review

by birtanpublished on October 28, 2020

This is lisa from mobile tech review and this is the samsung galaxy tab s7 plus so there's gonna be an s7 and s7 plus in two sizes likely to compete with the ipad pro that comes in two sizes 11 inch and this 12.4 inch now this is interesting for android's helmets because usually they run often on like kind of the last gen processor they're always the redheaded stepchildren in the world even samsung's high-end tablets sometimes you feel that way well this time we get the snapdragon 865 plus 5g capable if you get the 5g model

Onboard that's really quite nice you also get an oled display if you go for the 12.4 engine you get an ips class display on the 11 inch we're going to look at it now so this is going to vary by country by country and whether you get a wi-fi only or a 4g or a 5g version of the tablet in the united states i think we only get wi-fi and 5g options but mystic black mystic silver and mystic bronze for the larger 7 plus model and i believe mystic black for the 11 inch

Model we have the black one obviously the bronze mod looks just like the new samsung galaxy note 20 ultra bronze and the new buds live that match and so on and this watch right here which is the galaxy watch 3 that is the mystic bronze color so this is a first look review because this product isn't going to be released until the fall as samsung says so not final software all that sort of thing we don't get to do benchmarks and give it a final rating sort of thing but

We can tell you everything about it actually it's very stable and very fluid certainly it has a fast cpu and it should be you can see the storage and ram options on the screen right now and some of the other specs here but it's got everything you would expect from a modern high-end tablet that i believe is going to be a 650 for the 11 and 850 for the 12.4 inch and wi-fi only models probably a couple hundred dollars more for 5g and really with samsung's galaxy tab s

Line i mean you're never hurting for quality here the challenge is always with android tablets is they don't get a lot of love in terms of apps ones that support big screens really well so you're not just using phone apps blown up and samsung kind of tries to address that number one they have that partnership going strong with microsoft so you got office looking good on this and onedrive and all that sort of stuff that's pre-loaded and as you know samsung makes a lot of

Their own apps so they've got their own video apps and their own image viewers and all that sort of thing but honestly there are games and there are enough apps that are tablet optimized it's not like you're going to pick this up and look at it and think what do i do with it it's not that bad either we do have the s pen on board and yes it's included take that apple and it's a nice size pen and it's the usual wacom emr and they say latency is even further reduced and also helps that we have 120 hertz

Screens on both the s7 and the s7 plus so that means you know we use jargon like reduced latency and all that sort of thing what that means is there's less of a delay when the ink goes down and it's so smooth and flowy it's really very nice that's the idea there and in fact speaking of apps again the reason i mention that is because clip studio paint those of you who are digital artists you sure know what that is especially if you're doing comics or manga

And real popular on windows and on mac os and now it's available for ios for the ipad and we haven't really seen it on android but samsung has gotten them to bring it over and in fact you get a six month tryout for free because it's one of those subscription-based kind of programs so that's a pretty serious program right there for those who are doing that sort of illustration the s pen is delightful i love it i love wacom emr pens it's right up there certainly with the apple pencil

The only thing i don't love is the very glossy display so your pen is going to slide a little bit a matte screen protector will take care of that though i'd hate to put anything between me and the nice oled display on this bigger model for cameras you have an eight megapixel front camera which is actually quite good i actually find that i look a little better on it versus the samsung galaxy s20 plus camera for example and nowadays because of code that's pretty important for a lot of people you've got 13 megapixel rear main camera

And a 5 megapixel ultrawide camera and much as we joke about using cameras on tablets they're pretty darn good so for those who are using this for vertical markets are safe for artists again because often you want to take pictures of something that you're going to paint later perfect for that we have akg quad stereo speakers on board again competing with the ipad pro there and dolby software sound and they sound very good and very loud i was actually kind of surprised and startled by it out of the box they're like whoa turn that

Volume down so no complaints there we have the keyboard cover which is the book cover keyboard and there's just a book cover also and it's a two-piece affair and i like that a lot because oftentimes i just want to rip the keyboard off and take it away with me to do something else but i like to keep the back protected so it's magnetically attached to the back and it has that usual drop down kind of thing that reveals the s pen which still weirdly is magnetically attached to the back and will charge there now you don't

Need to charge it to just use it as a pen it's just for the bluetooth features that are available if you want to use it for controlling powerpoint presentations and all that sort of stuff in terms of hardware and build quality and looks this is the best one that samsung has made yet i mean their their tab s line's always been nice looking but every detail that i like the straight sides on this i like the look of even the logo and no obviously no decal here but no like gold glued on something or other it's just

Nice and etched onto the back there so yeah you don't feel like oh well the ipad pro or something is so much nicer in terms of hardware it's nice and sturdy good build quality a little bit of bezels on the edge and i'm okay with that because any of you who handle large tablets know how easy it is to accidentally touch something and just change what's on your screen can be really annoying battery life on this so far has been really good but i mean we have immense batteries here the tab s7

Has an 8 000 milliamp battery this one has a 10 090 milliamp battery so hey you're not going to kill it any time soon given the fact that these tablets are no heavier than average good job samsung for fitting that much battery in there they do support 45 watt very fast charging as well the optional book cover case has a nice quality feel it's the kind of easy to clean off you know fake sort of leather and the keyboard on it is nice and tactile granted you know you're not talking about a big

Laptop size keyboard because this is a little bit smaller but it's nice to type on and the trackpad supports gestures it's big enough to actually handle that so good job there for biometrics we have a fingerprint scanner in display on the larger s7 plus and it's actually fast it's not like old generation samsung in display fingerprint scanners if you get the 11 inch then it's embedded in the power button and there's also face unlock since samsung positions this as a

Business ready product we have samsung dex on board i know a lot of you like samsung decks and it creates kind of more like a desktop experience and it works fine here in conjunction with the keyboard and you've even got some dedicated keys on the keyboard jump into decks fast forward moves forward that sort of thing it's pretty well done for those of you who like that kind of experience so that's the samsung galaxy tab s7 plus again wi-fi only and there's one 5g available as well with fallback to lte

And that one is both millimeter wave and low band sub 6 anyway uh it's a fingerprint magnet yes it is but other than that gorgeous looking very nice tablet the only challenges ever is gonna be android app selection for tablets i'm lisa from mobile tech review be sure to subscribe to our youtube channel for more cool tech videos and hit the notification bell so you know about them
