  • The Samsung Galaxy Tab S 8.4 tablet has supremely elegant hardware, a beautiful display, and fast Android performance.


  • The fingerprint reader is naff and some of Samsung’s software features miss the mark, but the screen is great it’s the perfect size for toting around with you everywhere.


  • The Samsung Galaxy Tab S 8.4 is one of the best Android tablets we've ever reviewed. In terms of hardware it's the best you can buy right now and has a superbly thin and light design. There's very little to dislike here aside from some elements of the TouchWiz software and the higher price compared to Android rivals (the iPad mini 2 is the obvious alternative if you're not set on Android).


  • The Galaxy Tab S 10.5 is the best Android-powered media tablet available, but its competition is stiff.


  • Whether you like to watch a lot of video on your tablet or you enjoy looking through everyone's Facebook photos, the Galaxy Tab S 10.5 gives you a pretty awesome canvas in a very slim and light design. The Super AMOLED screen boasts richer colors, a higher resolution and better viewing angles than the iPad Air. Not everyone will love the oversaturated hues, but there's no denying that this is a gorgeous panel.


  • If that’s what you want, go buy it.


  • - Having stereo sound is good for games and films, but the sound is a little thin, and gets harsh at top volume.
    - Its internal speakers are a little disappointing, though.
    - Sharpness is great, but not flawless.
    - So the look is very suspect, but the Tab Pro 10.1’s back is nice and grippy making it easy to get a firm hold on the tablet.


  • With the massive Galaxy Tab Pro 12.2 and diminutive Tab Pro 8.4, this 10.1-inch slate is the most socially acceptable, narrowly avoiding the title of awkward middle child with its impressive screen and powerful insides.


  • Of all the "Pro" Samsung tablets, the Galaxy TabPro 10.1 is among our favourites. It's just the right scale, is slim and light, yet packs plenty of power in too. Such a pro specification does mean a "pro" price tag though: £449 to be precise. Given that faux leather build we're not convinced the build quite matches the price. It's also worth noting that for just £1 more you can pick up the Note 10.1, complete with its integrated built-in S Pen stylus, from the official Samsung site.


  • A 12.2-inch tablet is not the right choice for 90 percent of tablet buyers. However, good build quality, decent specs and the always-handy S Pen make this a good buy for arty types or business users not satisfied by an iPad Air.


  • With a huge display and powerful innards, the Samsung Galaxy Note Pro 12.2 makes the best practical use of Samsung's S Pen stylus and productivity apps yet.


  • Unless you absolutely need the Note 12.2's extra screen real estate and Remote PC feature, you're better off getting the Samsung Note 10.1 2014 Edition instead, which offers a similar experience for $150 less. 


  • The Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro 8.4 is a fine example of the increasingly rare premium Android tablet, but it's not the best small-screen value.


  • The Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro 8.4 is a high-quality Android tablet with good specs for the price. However, a series of issues with performance and the otherwise-impressive screen mean it has strong competition from cheaper Android rivals and the similarly-priced iPad mini with Retina Display.


  • By packing a super-sharp display, a powerful processor and a much-improved UI into a compact shell, the Galaxy Tab Pro 8.4 is one of the finest tablets the company has ever produced.
