Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 review: Powerful Android tablet, stunning entertainment device
The Tab S6 is Samsung’s flagship tablet this year touting a powerful Snapdragon 855 SoC and a stunning AMOLED display. But at Rs 59,900, can the Tab S6 replace your laptop?
- Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 price in India is set at Rs 59,900.
- It offers an attractive display and stereo speakers.
- It also gets a powerful processor, but software limits what you can do on the tablet.
Samsung has launched a few tablets this year that fall in various price segments. The Tab S5e, for example, was a mid-range Android tablet that was ultimately a great entertainment device, but not a great productivity tablet. Now we have the Galaxy Tab S6, which is Samsung’s flagship Android tablet that (unsurprisingly) happens to be a great entertainment device, too. But is it a great tablet for work?
The Galaxy Tab S6 has been launched in India priced at Rs 59,900 for the LTE model. Samsung isn’t selling the Wi-Fi-only model yet, so consumers will have to make do with the more expensive model for now. As a flagship tablet, the Tab S6 comes with all the bells and whistles. It offers a stunning AMOLED display, a powerful Snapdragon 855 chipset, a sleek metal and glass design and an all-day battery life.
The Tab S6 is supposed to be an iPad Pro challenger. While it has the looks and the raw power, does it translate to replacing your laptop?
Galaxy Tab S6 Design:
The Galaxy Tab S6 comes with a familiar yet attractive design language. It looks similar to previous Samsung tablets where you get a sleek slab that gets a gorgeous AMOLED display on the front with narrow bezels. I say narrow because the bezels are slim, but not as thin as what you get on the iPad Pro. Still, it is slim enough and there’s nothing on the bezel to distract you from the screen.
I love the form factor of the Tab S6, especially for watching content and playing games. It 244.5 x 159.5 x 5.7 mm and weighs around 420 grams, which makes it a slim, handy and easy to hold for long sessions. The curved edges and metallic construction makes the tablet easy to grip. The Tab S6 comes in Mountain Gray and Cloud Blue colours in India.
