Samsung Galaxy Tab S

Samsung Galaxy Tab S

I’ve had my Samsung Galaxy Tab S now for around a year and it is still going strong. I’ve always been a bit of a tech geek so when tablets first came out I was intrigued to see what all the fuss was about. My first experience of tablets was when I was tasked to buy my grandad one for his birthday. He needed something with a keyboard preferably and as he likes photography, I wanted to make sure I could get him a tablet with a good camera. Obviously the first tablet I looked at was the latest iPad but I was put off as I thought he might struggle with the navigation and using iTunes etc. I turned my attention to the Asus TF7OOt as it had a good camera and what seemed decent spec. It came with a small keyboard which I thought would be ideal for my grandad. Unfortunately, it was not the right purchase. I found it laggy despite the good spec and the keyboard wasn’t that great. I found the software was too basic making navigation quite difficult and software updates didn’t seem to be at the top of Asus’s agenda. This meant a lot of the bugs remained.

 

Patience Pays Off

I was determined to wait it out before I made another rash decision choosing a tablet and wanted to give it enough time for decent 10-inch model to become available on the market. Just as I decided to start looking again to see what was available, I saw that the Galaxy Tab S had just been announced. The specs looked amazing and it rivalled the latest iPad, appearing to be superior on most fronts. I knew that this tablet was the one I’d been waiting for so I ordered it without further hesitation. After my Auntie had seen it in action, she asked if I could order her one too. Shortly after, my other Auntie got tablet envy, ditched her iPad and she too ordered a Tab S. I’m sure the prices have gone down by now so if you’re looking for a reliable tablet which will keep up with the best of them, then you should definitely look at the Galaxy Tab S.
