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 8.4-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 294g.

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 4.5 out of 5 by 10 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Fantastic This was bought for my son who had done extensive and I mean extensive research comparing with the other main tablet brand! He was thrilled to get it and pleased he made this choice. Fast, quality picture, stylish design. Highly recommend. 27 January 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Excellent product I am using the tab for about 2 months. I use mainly while i commute to office and home.. I get 2 days of battery life (4hrs daily use). The only negative point is as the screen is egdge to edge display it is difficult to hold without touching the edges of the touch screen. Remove 1 start as this is not supporting micro USB PEN drives/ micro SD cards formatted in NTFS file system. They work great in Moto G and Nexus. 27 January 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent piece of kit This tablet has a beautiful display, web pages scroll smoothly and fast, full HD movies play smoothly, sound is pretty good for its size. Wi-Fi connections are easy to set up and never cause any problems. Having Android makes it very flexible. Installed VLC media player, VyprVPN, ReadyNAS remote, all work perfectly, plays any media VLC will play. Battery life is excellent, and use it in place of my Kindle most of the time. Would not hesitate to recommend. 02 December 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by Too Exasperating To Keep After reading many user and expert reviews I thought the time was right to move on from my iPad2 to the fresher and up-to-date 8.4” Tab S. What a huge disappointment that turned out to be. On day one; two of my favourite apps would not work, scrolling on internet pages was jerky, the pages took ages to render fully and the battery life was worse than my old (very old) tablet. The display quality is really impressive and benchmark tests I ran suggest its performance is also very good but unfortunately the experience is far too buggy. I just can’t use a tablet with so many annoyances and tasks that don't work well. I've returned it. 05 October 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by nice size tablet great tablet lightweight sharp detailed display battery last for days 02 October 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Easy to use and great picture and sound quality I am loving my new Samsung galaxy and find it easy to use. Other Android tablets I have tried in the past have been difficult compared to this. I also love the picture and sound qualities which are equivalent to HD and more. I would recommend it to anyone who is looking for a tablet that is light but still packs all the features you would expect or want. 17 September 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Awesome tablet Really great tablet from samsung, picture quality is right up there with the best, slim and smart design & easy to use! You won't be disappointed! 02 September 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best Samsung Galaxy Tablet yet. I love this tablet,its fast never lags and the screen is amazing very clear, very bright and excellent colours and resolution. Its light and very thin and you can add extra memory if needed and the sound is good but could be a little louder. Over all im very happy with it and it comes with a 2 year guarantee. 02 September 2014
