Engadget Review

Samsung's Galaxy TabPro S is more than just a Surface knockoff

The Galaxy TabPro S is the latest Surface Pro competitor: a tablet with a click-in keyboard that's powerful enough to potentially replace a laptop. As a first-generation product, it excels in tablet mode, offering both a thin design and long battery life -- a rare combination. But the keyboard needs work: It's cramped layout makes typos inevitable. Perhaps Samsung could retool the keyboard, but keep the same magnetic connector, making it easy for early adopters to upgrade.

Pros
  • Exceptionally thin and light
  • Longer battery life versus its competitors
  • First device in its class with a Super AMOLED screen
  • Touchpad on the keyboard cover works well
Cons
  • Included keyboard is cramped
  • Screen angle isn't adjustable when the tablet is docked
  • Performance is fine for everyday use, but occasionally sluggish
  • Pen not available at launch
