Incredible detail brought to life

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.

Q & As

Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 46 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great ... Not Perfect After several years as an iPad user, switching to an Android tablet was an interesting experience. I use an Android phone so I was aware of the operating system however it did take a while to get comfortable with the flexibility, the apps (some better, many worse than iOS) etc. I immediately added a 128GB micro SD and loaded with videos etc but then quickly realized the limitation of the external storage on 4.4 (Kit Kat) ... now I have my head around that and have some SD friendly apps, I'm now pretty happy. Waiting an age for Samsung to release the Android 5 (Lollipop) though ... I know it make little difference but I still think I'm missing out :-) The 'offer' to get £30 Google Play vouchers and cinema tickets is a joke though ... when you go to the web page to claim, the drop down box to select eligible product is not functioning and is mandatory hence impossible to process ... I don't have the energy to track down a way to contact Samsung about this (nothing to do with JL) but maybe this link should be removed from the JL website to avoid more frustration by others? I know the Tab S2 is about to some out but will be a 4:3 screen, I'm now getting used to the 16:9 of the Tab S so will not suffer upgrade envy this time around :-) 26 May 2015
Rated 2 out of 5 by microsdxc 64gb samsung evo I boutgh this tablet 2 month ago, i m happy with it but ... last week i boutgh an microsd card (microsdxc 64gb samsung evo) the same producer like the one ho was in the offer, the only thing is that this one is 64gb and the one in the offer was 32gb. The tablet recognizes but i can t use it, i can t write or move aplication on it. I understand that i must root my tablet to can use this card? 29 April 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by The best you can get This is the fiirst tablet to score higher review points than the latest Ipad, and I think it is well deserved. 16 April 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Excellent product The service from JL was first class as it always is. The tablet is exactly as the makers described and meets all my expectations. 15 April 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good product Bought as a gift and recipient is delighted with it. 14 April 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Well worth the money! The colours are amazing on the Tab S 10.5, so bright & clear. Watching movies is just like watching them on your TV. The sound quality is also very good, very crisp. There's no distortion or anything, its very loud too so you won't have to strain to hear anything. 14 April 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by Charger Problem Bought this tablet December 2014 3 yr warranty included in price, happy with the offer . Great tablet apart from the bloatware, lovely gfx, smooth actions of browser, Chrome seems better than the default browser. All in All very happy that was until yesterday, charger when plugged into the wall has stopped working, someone said charge it via computer, fine if you have a computer, I don't. I will be resetting the tablet back to factory settings after posting this. Return it to John Lewis this morning under warranty and hopefully get the problem sorted ...Watch this Space. 26 March 2015
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
