Design and Appearance
There are two versions of the Samsung Galaxy Tab S7: 11-inch and Plus: 12.4-inch. They are possibly Samsung’s best Android tablets yet, with rounded corners and flat sides.
The dimension of the tablet is 285 × 185 × 5.7 mm, while it weighs 575 grams, which is no larger than a laptop or Chromebook with the same dimensions. The volume and power buttons are located on the right side. There is also a slot for SIM / microSD cards, but there is no headphone jack. The device is ideal for writing notes with the included S-Pen or watching videos.
Surprisingly, the 11- and 12.4-inch versions of the Samsung Galaxy Tab S7 use different types of displays. The Samsung Galaxy Tab S7+ has a Super AMOLED screen. But S7 has LCD panel. Both devices have a maximum refresh rate of 120Hz for smooth display.
The Samsung Galaxy Tab S7+ also has a higher resolution of 2800×1752, which is surprising. The picture looks bright, highly detailed, and contrasty when the viewing angles are great. Videos look especially good in HDR10 +, and thanks to the 120Hz refresh rate, animations are more pleasing to the eye, and in games, it feels completely different.
The Galaxy Tab S7+ comes with the S Pen stylus, which is very good. The improved pen from Samsung now has a more comfortable shape and size, which makes it more comfortable to hold in your hands. The stylus is attached to a special connector on the back of the tablet – magnetically.
The keyboard itself is surprisingly good. The size, shape, and feedback of the keys are perfect, so Galaxy Tab S7+ is suitable for typing. Particularly useful are the series of function buttons that adjust the volume, screen brightness, and more. But the main distinguishing feature is the trackpad.
In the Galaxy Tab S7+, the front camera is very important during zoom video chats. The Samsung Galaxy Tab S7+ has an 8MP front camera, the quality was similar to a laptop’s webcam. However, when I took the selfie, the camera captured a lot of detail. 13MP and 5MP cameras on the back provide excellent clarity and color accuracy.
Samsung is not promising us long-term battery life. But the 10,090mAh battery inside the Samsung Galaxy Tab S7+ should last 9-11 hours.
Samsung is the market leader in Android tablets, so the new premium Galaxy Tab S7+ has all the features you can imagine. You also get a great S-Pen stylus that lets you write and draw as if you were using a real pen and paper. And the keyboard case makes this a complete laptop replacement.
