The Samsung Galaxy Tab S7 is the younger offspring of the Tab S7 series. Considering the tablet market is full of cheap devices, it is refreshing to see a premium flagship in the Android field. For starters, the Galaxy Tab S7 offers one of the best LCD displays on the market.
You get an 11-inch display with a 16:10 aspect ratio, making it one of the best devices for media consumption. The icing on the cake is the 120 Hz refresh rate. Also, one of the best quad speaker systems is on board, making entertainment even more enjoyable. The design is also very impressive here, you get a slim metal panel.
Since this is a Samsung tablet, you also get an S Pen included in the box. The S Pen is now better than ever, with ultra-low latency and accuracy. The S Pen attaches magnetically to the back of the phone and charges wirelessly.
At its heart, the Samsung Galaxy Tab S7 is powered by the latest Snapdragon 865 Plus, which is paired with 6 GB of RAM and 128 GB of internal storage. All the apps and games you play on it will run without problems on the tablet. The integrated battery has a capacity of 8,000 mAh and lasts for a day before it needs to be recharged.
On the software side, Samsung has done a good job with the One UI interface. However, the limited app support of the Android ecosystem for the tablet market lets you down. Samsung does a good job of overcoming the shortcomings with the DeX mode. The multitasking on the tablet is excellent and it can handle any load you throw at it.
Additionally, you can also buy the book case and keyboard combination that is sold separately. This will give you a better workstation experience. But this is too expensive and not everyone’s cup of tea.
Samsung is known for the high-quality build and design of its flagship products. This is also the case with the Tab S7 series. You can feel that immediately when you take the tablet out of the box – it feels like a solid block of metal.
The tablet has a brushed metal finish that extends over the entire edges. The Galaxy Tab S7 weighs 500 grams and is very thin at just 6.3 mm. The weight distribution is also very balanced here and does not feel head- or bottom-heavy. The tablet is also not bendable. It looks and feels premium in every way. You also get brushed metal sides.
On the front, there’s an 11-inch display with a 16:10 aspect ratio and a similarly sized bezel on all four sides. When you hold the Tab in landscape mode, the selfie camera is on the top. On the right side of the tablet is the USB 3.2 Type-C port, and there is a magnetic port for the Samsung keyboard on the bottom.
On the back is a dual camera with an LED flash and next to it is a magnetic glass bar where the S Pen can be placed and charged when not in use. It is also worth noting that the S Pen only charges when the tip is held towards the camera module. The magnet is not the strongest we have ever seen, but it does its job well.
