Samsung Galaxy Tab S7: Keyboard Cover Review

by birtanpublished on October 4, 2020

In addition to the aspen you can also use the samsung galaxy tab s7 with an official keyboard cover the cue bottle looks very promising because it has a kickstand and a touchpad built in however with a price tag of under 200 dollars it is very expensive i'm nj from mynextable.com and in this review you will learn whether it's worth it to spend that much on a keyboard before we start don't forget to subscribe to this channel i've got lots more videos about the galaxy tab s7

And the s7 plus coming up i think the keyboard cover for the galaxy tab s7 is well made it features a cover with an integrated kickstand that you attach magnetically to the back of the tablet the keyboard part with the touchpad is separate and connected magnetically as well so if you want you can use the back cover with the kickstand without the keyboard when watching movies for instance the integrated kickstand is quite strong and you can open it very wide it's also

Useful if you want to ride or draw with the s-pen and want to use the tablet at a slight angle the hinge of the kickstand is made of metal besides that hinge the cover is made of plastic completely it doesn't feel cheap and in fact it does feel well made it's not as premium feeling as the acantera keyboards from microsoft though together the keyboard and the cover weigh almost 400 grams which is quite a lot but for that we get a keyboard

And a kickstand which is nice and it's still lighter than the apple magic keyboard which weighs around 600 grams if you connect the back cover and the keyboard and close it the back of the tablet and the screen are protected the frame is always free though there's a cutout for the cameras and behind the little pocket the s pen can be protected and charged at the same time let's check out the keyboard even though it's smaller than your standard desktop

Class keyboard it's quite a big for a tablet since the galaxy tab s7 has an 11 inch screen it can be bigger than keyboards made for 10 inch tablets that's obvious we get separate arrow keys and function keys are built into the numbers row i was able to type with the keyboard blindly very fast it's quite comfortable the keys offer a real travel and a space far enough from each other with that being said i often work with tablet keyboards

So it could take you a couple of hours to get used to the smaller space but if you worked with the 11 apple ipad pro or with the keyboard for the microsoft surface go 2 before then you will feel right at home the keyboard for the galaxy tab s7 plus offers more space of course it's a bit disappointing that you can't use the keyboard at an angle that is possible with microsoft's tablets for instance here the keyboard always lies flat on a table a background light would be nice to have

Too but it's missing samsung is supporting a couple of keyboard shortcuts with those you can quickly open gmail the browser the calendar and so on and you can use it to open notifications start samsung dex or go back to the home screen sadly you can't configure them yourself using shortcuts you can also switch the language of the keyboard and software i often do that because i'm writing in english and german here you can choose between three different shortcuts and you can

Deactivate them too in apps common shortcuts are supported too at least sometimes in chrome for instance you can open a new tab with control plus t that works great just as it usually does on a desktop pc however when opening a new tab you've got to click into the url text field before you can start to type a url or to start a google search even when using the samsung dex desktop mode in a desktop operating system you usually can start to

Type immediately well it's not a huge issue of course but it shows that samsung dex even together with the keyboard is not perfect yet and doesn't always work like a desktop operating system but i do like that you can configure the galaxy tab s7 so that it starts samsung decks automatically once you connect the keyboard samsung dex has improved a lot i will get more into it in my final review below the keyboard we get a touchpad that's made of plastic too

It's much smaller than the ones of standard laptops but it works very precisely i mostly use the touchpad when working in microsoft word when i have to switch between rows and so on and sometimes inside the browser often i'm also using the touchscreen or the stylus when navigating through apps actually it's really useful to have three methods with this tablet you can use the touchscreen with your finger the s pen and the touchpad and you can seamlessly transition between the three

The touchpad does support multi-touch gestures not just for scrolling but also to get to the home screen pull down the notification bar or switch between opened apps these kind of gestures work in the normal mode but also in samsung decks so is it worth it to spend around 200 on the keyboard cover for the galaxy tab s7 well it depends on how much you would use it of course unlike with the galaxy tab s6 i didn't encounter any huge weak points this time instead i like the keyboard a lot i like

The design with its integrated kickstand which is super useful and i was able to type with the keyboard as well as with the apple magic keyboard which costs even more like with that one i think samsung is giving us a good compromise of comfort and mobility the keyboard is worth it if you work a lot while traveling in cafes for instance on a train or plane it's great for that but if you're working at home only i would always choose a proper desktop class keyboard instead

Because those are way more comfortable and if you just want to answer some emails while traveling occasionally it might not be worth it for you to spend around 200 for occasional use i think the logitech keys to go is a solid alternative all right that's been my review of the keyboard cover for the samsung galaxy tab s7 if you have any questions write them down below i will have my final review of the galaxy tab 7 and lots of comparisons coming up soon so subscribe to the channel i'm andrea
