Samsung Galaxy Tab S4 10.5" Tablet

Sandra has been quite pleased with her 10.5" Galaxy TAB S tablet, except for using the bluetooth keyboard that we bought. We decided to skip the TAB S3 generation and await the Galaxy TAB S4, now with a proper keyboard cover included for free with the preorder. Cost 599 - expensive, but it should stay the top of the range for quite a while.

The device reacts very quickly and the display is very crisp . We were sad to see the physical Home button gone, replaced by a soft one for TAB S4.

Galaxy TAB S4

The Galaxy S tablet has been retired to function as a mp3-player with about 15 GB of mp3:s.

The keyboard book cover adds 364 grams to the weight, making it totally 846 grams. Is my wife going to think that is to heavy? She will probably only use the keyboard about once a month. The alternative is to get her a tablet case, which most likely will have to be removed, when she wants to use the keyboard. If so, I must find her a case which is easy to remove. The keyboard case is easy to remove. For now my wife is happy with the keyboard case - time will tell.

There are another two interesting features: the S-Pen and the Samsung DX system. We have some learning to do to benefit from these features.
