TabPro S

 

Features:

I’ll break down a few of the main features of the TabPro S in this section and then we’ll get into my thoughts on performance and value of the TabPro S. 

Screen - Touchscreen:

The Galaxy Tab Pro features a 12” sAMOLED screen. The resolution is FHD+ (2160x1440) which on a Super AMOLED screen is pretty awesome.

Touchscreen-wise, it’s great, really no complaints and thanks to the performance offered by the Galaxy TabPro S you shouldn’t have any gripes about the touchscreen.

Hardware - Operating System:

The TabPro S is a Windows 10 Pro tablet, as far as functionality goes, it’s a full OS which lets you do anything your laptop can.

Hardware-wise, the Galaxy TabPro S features a dual-core Intel Core m3 CPU. On the CPU end of things it’s not the fastest CPU ever, but outside of video editing and CPU-intensive applications it’s not terrible.

The Galaxy TabPro S has 4GB of memory, which is pretty standard. The option for 8GB would probably be a nice option to have (and who knows, it might be offered in the future), but right now you’re stuck with 4GB. Not trying to make 4GB of memory sound like chopped liver, it’s quite good for a tablet, but personally I’d like a little more.

For storage you’ve got the options of 128GB and 256GB, pretty standard and for most mobile users those two options should satisfy most people.

 

Battery Life:

The TabPro S boasts a 10.5 hour battery life, which let’s face it is pretty impressive. I kept meaning to do a full on battery test but I kept getting distracted (running a 10 hour test is really boring).

The battery life of this device is impressive; can you get 10.5 hours out of it? Probably, but of course you probably won’t be working it too hard.

In my couple weeks with the device I had no problem getting 7 hours out of it using it on and off with some of the usage being pretty heavy. I never had it run out of battery during my daily usage, which I can’t say the same for my laptop that I currently use.

If I had to guess I’d say with moderate usage you should be able to get in the 7-8 hour range on average, watching movies and other tasks that push it a little more will probably drop you into the 6 hour area.
