Product information

With its incredible specs and stupendous good looks, the Samsung Galaxy Tab S is a tablet that will make others envious. This premium device features a stunning WQXGA Super AMOLED display, powerful eight-core processor and Android operating system with features that make computing on a tablet easier than ever. A tablet’s never looked so good.

Incredible detail brought to life
Experience stunningly vivid and true-to-life picture quality on the 10.5-inch Super AMOLED display. Combined with a resolution of 2560 x 1600 pixels, images on the Tab S look clear and well defined with an amazing 94% colour accuracy ensuring movies and photos pop off the screen with vivid colours and deep blacks. And with Samsung's Adaptive Display technology, the Tab S will automatically adjust the display settings to give you the best image possible depending on your environment and the application in use.

Impeccable design
The Tab S features dazzling good looks. From the premium design with a slim bezel, stylish rim and dimpled back to the slim and sleek sizing of the Tab S. It's almost unbelievably thin and light, weighing just 465g.

Eight cores for lightning-fast performance
A 1.9GHz Octa-Core Processor and 3GB of RAM powers the Galaxy Tab S. Samsung's Exynos 5 processor uses eight cores spread across two CPUs to deliver superior performance for less energy. Coupled with 3GB of RAM, you'll be able to run the latest apps for image and video editing, gaming and productivity and enjoy smooth performance and impressive graphics.

Android and Samsung apps
Running on Android 4.4, the Tab S is simple and effective to use for anything from web browsing to photo & editing and gaming. It comes with a range of Android apps including Google Play, for downloading extra apps and games.

Samsung has added it's own twist to Android, introducing incredible features like Multi Window, which allows you to easily perform multiple tasks on one screen, SideSync 3.0 to let you view and control your smartphone on your Tab S and Remote PC to let you access your work computer from your tablet to edit, save, drag or drop documents.

Super security
Your privacy is important, and Samsung has taken steps to help keep your details private. A fingerprint scanner can be used to lock and unlock your device, replace ID and password, switch between multiple user profiles and hide private content, while Samsung's Knox software is designed to keep your applications and data secure. You can also enable Kids Mode, which features a colourful interface, specialised kids apps and parental controls to keep your kids safe too.

Q & As

Rated 4.4 out of 5 by 39 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent product BUT... Very pleased with the product but it was for sale offering £50 cashback. The exasperation and palaver of claiming the cashback by having to submit photographs of the receipts by email one month after purchase, then having to wait a further month for the money to be paid ill becomes John Lewis. I will avoid buying anything else on this basis in future. 25 February 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by Samsung Tab S Purchased this after reading reviews and seeing battery life of up to 10 hours. However battery drains VERY quickly. In just over two hours on Internet (no games played) battery went from 81% to 25% and in the time of writing this review has dropped to 16%. Battery life was longer on Galaxy Tab 2. Surely this is not right. Positive is colours are fantastic. 03 February 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by John Lewis Disputing 3 Year Warranty I am relatively happy with the tablet, my only criticism would be the Samsung bloatware which cant be deleted. My main issue is with John Lewis Customer Support. I purchased the tablet when the 3 year warranty was on offer; many of the reviews here refer to it; my impression was that this was John Lewis offering an extra year of warranty over and above the Samsung 2 years. However, I have received nothing from JL confirming any warranty whatsoever; I am a regular customer and know that warranty information is either confirmed via email or post. Customer service are now denying that any offer ever existed and if it did it would have been from Samsung and I would have to take it up with them. I've now asked for my enquiry to be treated as a complaint and will post a comment below on the result. If others made the purchase when the 3 year warranty was on offer, don't assume it will be honoured by JL unless you have it in writing. 28 January 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great tablet First of all I'll say that I'm very happy with the tablet, the screen is excellent and its a lovely user experiance. However it's not perfect but that's largely down to the software. It's full of Samsung bloatware that you can't get rid of, I'm not a huge fan of the touchwiz interface either but that can be changed by using the google now launcher. I'm hoping that an update from android 4.4.2 will be the offing soon as well. This would be nigh on perfect with lollipop. 27 January 2015
Rated 2 out of 5 by Battery Charging The screen is fantastic and great that it has ability to use SD memory card - although not every app can be stored on the SD and many need to be stored on the device. My concerns with the Tab S 10.5 is that it takes an eternity to charge - am I doing something wrong?! I have done endless googling to find out why but to no avail. The batter also drains VERY quickly too - much more than my husband's ipad when being used for similar things. Also, there are so few apps that you can use on this - (nearly) everything is for the phone. 'My Galaxy' which is on the home screen refers to everything for the phone ... last time I looked this wasn't a phone. When on the web the pages are quite shakey and many of the images look like they are just configured for a phone screen. Something is afoot - either Samsung need to sort out the functionality or I have a duff. Grateful for any suggestions if the latter then maybe I should take back to JL. As always, great service/delivery from John Lewis so far. 23 January 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Super Tablet with Fantastic Display My First tablet and decision was between this product and IPad Air. I will use mainly for watching TV , videos and web , to me having a good display / resolution / ratio was most important thing and this little beauty seems to do the trick ! Plus - Having compared screens in John Lewis the Samsung Galaxy Tab is superior than the Ipad and is the best display I have seen . Pictures and Videos look amazing, colours and definition are excellent . Also the screen size when in Landscape is so much better than the Ipad for viewing videos as thinner black lines top and bottom due to ratios. The display also adapts automatically to light levels , I think this is going to be really useful when in use outdoors / sunshine. This tab is light weight and easy to hold. Lots of freebies bundled in, trial music, magazines etc . Also found downloading from Google Play easier than Apple Store as no passwords each time I want to download. Ability to add additional storage (upto 128gig) a big plus , micro SD cards seem cheap enough. Internet browsing quick and can use Google Chrome or Samsung IE. JL 3 year warranty adds peace of mind. Minus - never used Android tab before and noticed that some some social media apps don't render as well as on IOS particularly when this tab is used in Landscape mode. Externally not as aesthetically pleasing as Ipad but I guess once in a cover doesn't make much difference . Happy with purchase and super service from John Lewis. 28 December 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Lots of Blotware It was the Galaxy Tab S vs the iPad Air. I opted for this because of the Android OS and I could tether it to my Samsung phone and because of the positive reviews both here and elsewhere. I am little disappointed with it's slow response, I was expecting better performance. Also, Samsung have deemed it necessary to fill it with software and apps which I will never use. Even if I wanted to use any, I could easily download them myself as and when deemed necessary. I can't fault John Lewis - great service and offering - extra 3 years warranty. Just wish they had TitaniumBronze available, I would have preferred that instead of the white. Saved £100 in The Black Friday deal. So very happy. 18 December 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent Product My best buy ever. Tab is well worth the money. The image resolution is fab. Really enjoying watching movies and checking out my snaps. Very fast too for online browsing and downloading data. 16 December 2014
