Samsung Tab S3 Review: The Stylish HDR-Ready Tablet Is An Able iPad Pro Foe
The new Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 is a worthy foe of Apple's iPad Pro. For now, it is one of the best if not the best among Android tablets.
One aspect of Samsung's latest and best tablet so far is its looks. The Galaxy Tab S3 comes with a handsome all-glass back panel instead of plastic or aluminum. It basically looks like a larger version of the Galaxy S7 which is notable for its impressive and stylish design.
The premium Galaxy Tab S3 sports a 9.7-inch Super AMOLED display with 2048 x 1536 pixel resolution making it perfect for watching videos and movies. Each corner of the tablet contains speakers that are loud enough to fill a room.
CNET added that the tablet's claim to fame is that it is the very first of its kind to have support for HDR (High Dynamic Range) However, HDR content like videos, movies and TV shows are not yet available to download or stream. Other notable features of the Galaxy Tab S3 are the fingerprint sensor embedded on the home button, the comfortable-to-use S Pen stylus, a headphone jack, and fast-charging USB-C.
As Tech Radar noted, one thing going against the Galaxy Tab S3 is its keyboard. The problem is that users need to dole out a little extra cash (a lot, actually) to get the pogo keyboard case. Samsung is charging $129 for the accessory. Those who can't or won't purchase the separate keyboard can still enjoy the Tab S3 as an entertainment device. Businesspeople, however, will need the keyboard to accomplish more tasks. Aside from its price, the keyboard case cannot be adjusted to change the viewing angles while the keys are not backlit making it hard to use in the dark. Furthermore, users cannot smoothly shift from laptop to tablet mode because the screen goes to sleep upon disconnecting from the keyboard.
The keyboard case sports a holster for the Pen which is packaged with the Galaxy Tab S3 upon purchase. This means purchasing the keyboard is necessary if users want to keep the S Pen safely tucked on the tablet.
The Samsung Tab S3 was unveiled at the MWC 2017 and has since been dubbed a possible "iPad Pro killer". The $599 high-end tablet was released on March 24 in the U.S. and will reach UK shores on March 31.

Such is the tale that fits the recent price hike coming from the stable of Netflix. Having baited consumers into believing that streaming, and not cable subscription, is the right way to go, Netflix has now decided to drop its own form of a bombshell on consumers in the form of price increment. The news, which was announced earlier this year, detailed that Netflix would be raising prices across all of its plans by 13 to 18 percent.
