Samsung Galaxy Tab S6

Samsung Galaxy Tab S6

Date Written: 8/29/2019

The Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 was announced on July 31, 2019 and is the latest tablet in Samsung’s premium ‘Tab S’ series. The Tab S6 is positioned as a laptop replacement with the goal of allowing you to be as productive on a tablet as you would be on a laptop. It’s set to compete directly with the iPad Pro 11. It’s less expensive (starts at $649 USD) than the iPad Pro 11 and includes the S Pen stylus out of the box.

The Tab S6 has some meaningful upgrades/improvements over the Tab S4, but there is not much here that is ‘groundbreaking’. The device looks very similar to the S4 with the major exception being an indent on the back of the tablet that allows you to attach your S Pen for storage and charging. Another addition is that of a second rear camera. The internal hardware includes a faster processor, more RAM, MicroSD card support and a slightly smaller battery that Samsung claims will still last for 15 hours of video playback.

To get the most out of the tablet you can purchase Samsung’s Book Cover Keyboard which easily attaches to the tablet and includes a full keyboard and trackpad. It also has a button that allows you to easily switch to Samsung DeX mode which is a PC-like interface.

Overall the Tab S6 looks like it should be a great device. It does have a large 10.5-inch screen which may be too large for some inspectors to carry in the field. If you’re looking for a top of the line tablet and prefer the Android operating system then this might be the tablet for you.
