What experts liked
Works well for business application, writing, drawing, guiding drones and other RAM-heavy tasks.
- BestReviews
It looks and feels better than the rubberized plastic cover of the Tab S2, and the glass is more comfortable to hold; while you’re trading instantly collected sweat marks on the older model for fingerprints and smudges on the Gorilla Glass back, you’re ending up ahead.

The tablet packs the same 2048 x 1536 resolution as the Tab S2, but it’s now HDR-enabled when you’re watching supported content either through Netflix or Amazon Prime.

The Galaxy Tab S3 shines best when watching video.

And while the front is plain, it’s the AMOLED display at the center of this thing that you're here for: it’s sharp, vibrant, and gets bright enough to hurt.

Samsung's screen here offers HDR support for higher contrast and more vivid colors; indeed, it provides a rich canvas for videos and games.

The very bright screen and its reduced glare will be easy to view when used outdoors or in bright rooms.
- Consumer Reports
It has the perfect blacks and brilliant colors that only AMOLED can produce, and makes iPads feel a little washed out.

Battery life has been solid on the Tab S3.

What experts didn't like
Android operating system & bundled apps take up a good chunk of onboard storage.
- BestReviews
What’s missing? There are no function keys along the top (we’re okay with that), and it’s sorely missing a home button, requiring you to reach for the fingerprint home sensor on the tablet and possibly knocking your coffee over in the process.

My biggest issue with the Tab S3 is its software.
- Trusted Reviews

One of the most disappointing things about the Galaxy Tab S3 is its unremarkable Pogo keyboard case.
- CNET

The bigger disappointment for me was the tablet’s four speakers.
- The Verge

But with Tab S3, my usual workflow is further hampered by the cramped keyboard and missing touchpad.

Nothing significant
- Consumer Reports
Photos taken with the main camera often looked like they had a haze or veil over them, prompting us to wipe the lens, which didn't help.
- PC Magazine

Unfortunately, the best screen has been paired with a boring design.
