Engadget Review

The Galaxy Tab S6 is a powerful, long-lasting Android tablet that is excellent until you try to use it as a laptop replacement. Its Samsung-made keyboard cover and DeX desktop software need a lot of work before you can truly multitask heavily on the system. But if all you need is to edit some documents and spreadsheets and reply to emails and chats on the go, the Tab S6 is more than capable. Plus, the S Pen is a truly helpful tool for those who like jotting down their random thoughts and having a device that automatically organizes them.

Having owned the previous Tab S4 and now the Tab S6 with 256 gb storage and 8 gb ram I'm very impressed with the latest iteration. Snappy performance, stupid long battery life, gorgeous AMOLED screen and bright enough to be viewed in direct sunlight, quad speakers that sound great and surprisingly light. Great value for what you get and they include an s-pen in the box! I also picked up the new updated keyboard cover and I'm quite happy with it. The kickstand is adjustable and they finally included a trackpad on the keyboard and the Dex button was a nice tough. If you're looking for an iPad Pro alternative like I was look no further than the new Tab S6. Much more affordable with options like IP 68 water/dust proofing and true GPS functionality even with the wifi-only version which isn't available on the iPad Pro. The SD card support up to 1 tb is just icing on the cake for travelling and business use. Overall a great tablet
