Samsung Galaxy Tab S6

More power but at a higher price

Weight: 420g | Dimensions: 245 x 159 x 57mm | Screen size: 10.5-inch | Resolution: 1600 x 2560 | CPU: Snapdragon 855 | RAM: 6GB | Storage: 128GB-256GB | Battery: 7,040mAh | Rear camera: 13MP | Front camera: 8MP

The most powerful Samsung tablet yet
Comes with the S Pen
Could potentially replace your laptop...
...if you fork out for the keyboard
No headphone port

The Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 really wants to replace your other devices, be it your laptop, or maybe even your iPad Pro. It comes with a feature-rich S Pen stylus that recharges in a super convenient magnetic groove on the back of the tablet when not in use. Dex mode works beautifully as a Chromebook-like operating system, although to get the most out of it, you'll need to fork out even more money on the BookCover keyboard (now featuring a touch pad too). Considering the steep price of the Galaxy Tab S6, Samsung would have won us over much more if the keyboard came as standard. 

The battery should get you through a workday and we are impressed at how easily you can switch between work tasks or just kick back and enjoy the gorgeous screen and surprisingly loud speakers for media playback and web browsing too. If casual use is more your thing for a Samsung tablet, then we'd advise checking out the prices of the cheaper models below instead.

Samsung Galaxy Tab S5e

Arguably better than the S4 despite the lower price

Weight: 400g | Dimensions: 245 x 160 x 5mm | Screen size: 10.5-inch | Resolution: 1600 x 2560 | CPU: Snapdragon 670 | RAM: 4/6GB | Storage: 64/128GB | Battery: 7,040mAh | Rear camera: 13MP | Front camera: 8MP

Gorgeous screen and chassis
Still packs a big punch
No pen support
No 3.5mm headphone port

The Galaxy Tab S5e isn't quite a full-on upgrade to the S4, instead, it has mix of improvements and minor cuts to bring the price down quite a lot. You're still getting the same gorgeous AMOLED screen and Dex connectivity as the more expensive S4. The Tab S5e is actually even thinner, lighter and includes a fingerprint scanner. 

The processor is a touch slower in the S5e, but not by a huge margin. You don't get a stylus here either as the S5e's screen isn't compatible with any type of pen and it also lacks a traditional 3.5mm headphone port. If the lack of pen support isn't going to be an issue for you though, we'd go for this model over the more expensive Tab S4.

Samsung Galaxy Tab A 10.1 (2019)

An update on an old favorite

Weight: 460g | Dimensions: 149 x 24 x 7.5mm | Screen size: 10.1-inch | Resolution: 1200 x 1920 | CPU: ARM Cortex-A73 | RAM: 2GB | Storage: 32GB | Battery: 6,150mAh | Rear camera: 7.99MP | Front camera: 5.04MP

Full HD screen
Cheap for a large tablet
Up to 13 hours of battery

The latest version of the cheapest 10-inch Samsung Tablet is a sleeker affair than past iterations and the price is pleasantly low too. The RAM is a bit low, but if you're not going to push anything too demanding on the tablet that wont be a problem. 

If you just want a nice Full HD tablet to browse the web and watch film and TV content on then this is an excellent option and feels even better in the hand thanks to the new metal chassis that you'd expect to find on tablets costing far more than the asking price here.

Samsung Galaxy Tab S4 prices

Prices are dropping now on the former Samsung champ

Weight: 482g | Dimensions: 249.3 x 164.3 x 7.1mm | Screen size: 10.5-inch | Resolution: 1600 x 2560 | CPU: Snapdragon 835 | RAM: 4/6GB | Storage: 64/256GB | Battery: 7,300mAh | Rear camera: 13MP | Front camera: 8MP

Much cheaper than the new S6
Optional PC desktop-like interface
S Pen stylus included at no extra cost

The Samsung Galaxy S4 deals are looking better than ever now that the new flagship S6 has launched. The Tab S4 is a step up from the older tablets as Samsung has attempted to bring an optional desktop experience to the operating system to make it compete with Microsoft's professional-facing Surface devices. Sadly, this also means you'll have to buy the keyboard and mouse separately if you want the full Dex experience. The S Pen Stylus is included at no extra charge though. Truth be told, if you're not too bothered about the new desktop-modes, you could save a lot of money by opting for the older, but still excellent, Tab S3 model.

Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 prices

Former flagship Android tablet is still a winner

Weight: 429g | Dimensions: 237.3 x 169 x 6mm | Screen size: 9.7-inch | Resolution: 1536 x 2048 | CPU: Snapdragon 820 | RAM: 4GB | Storage: 32GB | Battery: 6,000mAh | Rear camera: 13MP | Front camera: 5MP

Still incredibly powerful
HDR-ready display is excellent
Price is dropping more now

Samsung's 2017 still packs a mean punch and prices have dropped very nicely since then thanks to the newer models. With a glass back, it's clearly been taking style tips from the gorgeous Samsung Galaxy phone lineup and the new Super AMOLED screen supports HDR too - a tablet first at the time. 

While still not what you'd call a cheap tablet by any stretch of the imagination, you can often save a lot of money with the S3 compared to the best prices of the newer Tabs. So take a look at the specs list for the two, and is this will do the job just as well, why not save a bit of cash?

Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 9.7-inch prices

Samsung's older flagship is much cheaper now

Weight: 389g | Dimensions: 237.3 x 169 x 5.6mm | Screen size: 9.7-inch | Resolution: 1536 x 2048 | CPU: Octa-core | RAM: 3GB | Storage: 32GB/64GB | Battery: 5870mAh | Rear camera: 8MP | Front camera: 2.1MP

Svelte design
Screen still looks great
So-so battery life

With a stunning AMOLED screen to match many of Samsung's phones smartphones, this 9.7-inch Android tablet is still one we really like. It's super thin - thinner even than the iPad Air 2 - and is also super lightweight but very powerful.

The battery isn't the best if you're away from a powerpoint for the day though and the RAM is a little low compared to the newer versions, but if you're not going to be putting the Tab S2 through too many intensive apps, it should still be pretty slick. It's usually less than half the price of the newest Samsung tablet in the series though which is a huge selling point in of itself.

samsung galaxy tab s2 8-inch deals

Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 8-inch prices

The smaller version of a Samsung classic

Weight: 265g | Dimensions: 198.6 x 134.8 x 5.6mm | Screen size: 8-inch | Resolution: 1536 x 2048 | CPU: Octa-core | RAM: 3GB | Storage: 32GB/64GB | Battery: 4000mAh | Rear camera: 8MP | Front camera: 2.1MP

Same great design
Detailed screen with a high PPI
Better battery than the larger version

Prices for the 8-inch and 9.7-inch S2 frequently cross paths, making if difficult to recommend one over the other. One the one hand getting a bigger screen for less money sounds like the better deal, but maybe you'd prefer the smaller screen if you're on the move more or you find large tablets a bit unwieldy. 

The battery on this version is smaller which is another element to consider. The screen resolution is the same, but the PPI (pixel per inch) density is greater on the smaller screen, so it looks just a tiny bit better.

Samsung Galaxy Tab A 7-inch deals

One of the best small tablets still available

Weight: 283g | Dimensions: 186.9 x 108.8 x 8.7mm | Screen size: 7-inch | Resolution: 800 x 1280 | CPU: Quad-core | RAM: 1.5GB | Storage: 8GB | Battery: 4000mAh | Rear camera: 5MP | Front camera: 2MP

Often very cheap
Great size
On-board storage is small

7-inch tablets are the ideal size for most people, offering a screen bigger than smartphones (although some are getting close to this size now!) but still being comfortable to hold in one hand while reading or watching video. The nonslip backing ensures it won't be sliding out of your hand either.

The 7-inch Galaxy Tab A is also a great size tablet to take with you out of the house on your commute or on your hols. And with a battery that lasts up to 11 hours between charges, you'll be doing just that as much as you want and be able to leave the charger at home if you're only out for a day or two.

  • Twitch hack reveals Amazon’s Steam rival could be cheekily named Vapour

    The big Twitch hack that just happened also came with an interesting revelation in the form of leaked details that seem to indicate that Amazon (which owns Twitch) is building a Steam rival.

    The would-be online games store is codenamed Vapour (or Vapor) – presumably a cheeky dig at Steam rather than a serious candidate for a final name – and according to the info spilled in the hack, it’ll integrate Twitch features as you might expect. This was uncovered by data miner Sinoc on Twitter.

    See more

    Think of Twitch but with a built-in games platform where you can buy the latest titles, and have your games library in the same place that you do all your stream viewing.

    Sinoc also discovered code for what’s apparently an app by the name of ‘Vapeworld’, which would appear to be some kind of VR chat app complete with various assets including 3D emotes. Presumably this could be integrated with Vapor within Twitch, given the reference in the name.

    The (claimed) presence of this stuff in the leaked material does not necessarily mean it’s anything beyond concepts and potential ideas for the future, of course.


    Analysis: Could this happen, or is it likely to be Vapourware?

    Vapour – or whatever it may end up being called, if anything ever comes of it – makes sense from Amazon’s point of view, given that Twitch represents an instant community as a purchasing audience on tap. With some clever strategy – and exclusive games or content, maybe – it’s not difficult to imagine how this could be a way of very quickly building a compelling rival to Steam.

    Such a platform would, of course, add to Amazon’s gaming strengths, with Prime Gaming (previously Twitch Prime) already offering free in-game goodies (and freebie games for that matter).

    Whether Vapour will end up on the pile as a missed (or perhaps that should be ‘mist’) opportunity, or if it’ll actually ever come to anything, obviously remains to be seen. Although PC Gamer, which spotted the above tweet, points out a piece of evidence which seemingly reinforces the likeliness – namely an Amazon patent filing from 2017 describing an interface for ‘joining games from a spectating system’, with the ability to ‘order, purchase, or otherwise obtain demo or full versions of games’.

    There are a few digital dots here, as it were, but we’d be foolish to be too hasty to join them. Epic has, of course, already gone toe-to-toe with Steam for years now, backed with a ton of cash for exclusives, and Valve has managed to weather that storm thus far…

  • Elden Ring PC gets fix for stuttering, but some performance issues remain

    Elden Ring has received massively positive critical acclaim overall, but there’s a fly in the ointment on PC, clearly visible if you look at Steam reviews – namely issues around stuttering, but a patch has now been released, and the developer has promised to work ‘constantly’ on improving performance for PC players.

    As PC Gamer reports, the day-one patch (v1.02) solved a good deal of stuttering that our sister site encountered pre-release, so definitely improved matters, but there are still jerky frame rates in evidence at times.

    A message from Elden Ring’s developer (via the publisher) states that regarding performance-related gremlins like stuttering, “we will be constantly working to improve the game so that it can be played comfortably on various PC environments and platforms.”

    Another issue on PC is that of the mouse being overly sensitive, and a fix is also inbound for this; it should arrive in the “near future.”

    Furthermore, the developer notes that it is “working on a few other bug fixes” and some further performance improvements to boot, while apologizing for any inconvenience caused to gamers.

    Away from the PC, a major fix for the PS5 is being implemented to cure saved games going wrong due to the console being turned off while playing (or in rest mode). Until that patch arrives, PS5 gamers are advised to “please save your game manually by exiting the game regularly” (press the Option button to get the system menu, then select ‘Quit Game’ to save data correctly, the developer notes).


    Analysis: Don’t forget your graphics driver, as ever…

    Something else worth bearing in mind is that the developer advises that on PC you should ensure that your graphics card driver is fully up-to-date. As with any fresh game release, this is almost certainly going to make a difference (optimizations for new games are often carried out in the very latest drivers from Nvidia and AMD on the run-up to launch day).

    Indeed, the dev notes that this move alone may “significantly improve performance” and so it’s well worth doing if you haven’t already.

    Let’s hope the rest of the frame rate fixing comes at speed, because the stuttering can reportedly be very bad in some cases, with PC Gamer describing times when the game dropped to zero fps, meaning Elden Ring was essentially frozen momentarily. That sort of thing can be very jarring, naturally, and even more frustrating in terms of it not necessarily coinciding with heavy activity and lots going on in-game.

    Of course, there is some good news on the PC performance front in that Elden Ring’s system requirements aren’t nearly as onerous as we thought they might be
