Logitech Type - S Keyboard Cover for Samsung Galaxy Tab S 10.5

Product information

Enjoy an exceptional typing experience on your tablet with the Logitech Type - S keyboard case for Samsung Galaxy Tab S 10.5. This versatile case features a built-in keyboard and can be placed in multiple viewing positions, while also being thin, light and great for protecting your Tab.

The built-in keyboard features well-spaced keys for a familiar typing experience. It uses Bluetooth to make connecting with your Tab S easy, while Android shortcut keys will help you save time, by giving you quick access to functions. The keyboard is USB rechargeable, and features a battery life of up to 3 months from one charge (based on 2 hours usage per day).

Precision engineering and state of the art materials make the Type - S amazingly thin and light, so it won't feel bulky in your bag or in your hand. It features Logitech's Essential Protection System (EPS) which utilises durable and water-repellent materials to protect both sides of your Tab S from bumps, scratches and spills, making it ideal for everyday use.

To help save battery life and ensure your Tab S is ready when you are, the Type - S automatically puts your tablet to sleep when you close the cover and then wakes it up when you open it. Dual viewing positions for typing and reading makes the Type - S comfortable to use, while a SecureLock system uses corner clips to keep your Tab S securely in the case.

Q & As

Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 6 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Logitech Type-S Keyboard Cover For Samsung Galaxy Tab S 10.5 This is a fantastic concept - a protective case that encompasses a bluetooth keyboard. There are a few things that I would have done differently though and this is why I gave it 4 rather than 5 stars The keyboard is designed for the Samsung Tab S and to that end does a perfect job. There is no edge protection for the Samsung and this is one weakness in its design. However, the case edge is larger that the Tab S and offers a little more protection through this. It is water resistant, but as above, offers no edge protection so your Tab S will get wet if water goes into the edge. Protection, overall though, is pretty good. There are a few disadvantages including the weight. It is pretty much the same weight as the Tab S itself so you will end up carrying around around 900g of machine and keyboard cover - still lighter than a netbook but not light by any other measure. The App buttons are not programmable (so far as I can discern) and so, if you use them, you are forced to use the Apps that Logitech have assigned - ok for some and a nuisance for others I suspect. The keyboard case is also not designed very well in terms of where its constituent parts meet each other and the case scratches and looks a bit rough very quickly. Neoprene or rubber buffers could have fixed this quite easily. There is no touch/mouse pad that would have been useful. The case can be used as a stand but has only one fixed position for the Tab S. This is ok for most uses. The case can also be used flat. Battery life is stated at 3 months between charges (USB) with moderate use - haven't tested this ... yet! Overall a good product and recommended, but beware of the negatives. 17 November 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by very good except... We are on our third! First and second worked well for a few weeks then the "@" button stopped working. John Lewis were brilliant, sent out replacements immediately and collected the old one. The third one developed the same fault but we discovered that Control "2" gave us the @ so we decided to just keep it. Otherwise the cover is very usable, connects readily to wireless, protects the tablet well, stands it up securely and at a good angle and the battery life is very long indeed. We do wonder with the @ problem whether it is something we are doing to the cover, rather than a fault. Thoughts? 10 November 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent piece of kit I spent ages comparing this with the Samsung one. Very difficult as I could not get to see either in any shop. The Samsung one looked better - clips on clam shell style and then has a slot for the screen. However there is no protection for the camera lens, reviews said it slid out of slot and I think the keys were smaller. In the end I opted for the Logitech. It fits perfectly and transforms this into a small laptop. The keyboard is a reasonable size, key strokes are excellent, you get apostrophes etc back as you would on a normal keyboard and obviously a full screen to view. When not in use it folds under the screen out of the way. I had been concerned that the keys would be exposed on my lap and vulnerable but this is not the case. It concertinas so that the keyboard is protected. Battery life is excellent and it paired without difficulty. Note that the side switch is red for 'off' which is sneaky and meant I was trying to pair it when it was switched off..It was set on $ but you go to settings/general/language and input and select 'English UK' and 'hey presto' £ and UK English appear on the screen. The only downside is that it makes it a little heavy. It is about the same as our old IPad with a normal case (not keyboard one) so I reckon that is a pretty good trade off. The upside is massive. I can type without millions of mistakes, you get the full screen to view. I would recommend it unreservedly. Which is not something I do often... 12 April 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by US Keyboard setting The keyboard was set to the USA setting so I was unable to use signs such as @ £ " etc. I took it back to John Lewis (Liverpool) and both Robert (Sales) and John (Tech Support) managed to resolve the problem. Thank you both. I bought the keyboard when it was on offer but would not have paid the full price. 30 January 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Does what it's intended to do! Excellent wraparound cover that switches the tablet on/off, while doubling as a triple position stand. Like the matching bronze plastic material - looks classy, just like the tablet. 27 January 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great accessory I found that while looking at other cases/keyboards for the Tab S 10.5, you either got a protective case or a keyboard attachment. This is the only one I could find that provides both. Functionally the keyboard is as you would expect, with a good range of shortcut functions available. Its durable too, but at the same time fairly low profile which I like. I've had it for over a month now, and haven't had to charge it and I'm a moderate to heavy user. Rated 4/5 for 2 reasons. One is the price as I really think it could do to come down by £25. The other is that every once in a while, I've found the bluetooth to drop its connection and start interfering with the WiFi on the tablet. A quick re-pair sorts this out though. 26 September 2014
