The best Samsung tablet in a long time
Pros: - Excellent performance and strong battery life - 2K display looks great - 4G connectivity - Great value for money Cons: - Fingerprint sensor is bad - TouchWiz is even worse Verdict: Samsung isn't generally known for its tablets these days but the Samsung Galaxy Tab S 8.4 T705 doesn't fare bad at all. It has a good amount of power, sizeable storage, 4G support and its display is just downright beautiful. You could do without TouchWiz's bloated features and the shoddy fingerprint sensor though. The Samsung Galaxy Tab S 8.4 T705 is still a compelling tablet for its price - you only need to stomach the interface. Review: It's interesting to note Samsung's evolution with the Samsung Galaxy Tab franchise. While the company's Galaxy phone and Galaxy Note franchise has soared to new heights, the Galaxy Tab faced one failure after another. The Samsung Galaxy Tab S range attempts to bring it to a new level, evolving it to compete in a more premium space. Though it still has the telltale signs of a difficult-to-manage Samsung device, the Samsung Galaxy Tab S 8.4 T705 does prove to be worth a look. It's also available for Rs. 27,900 which is a far better price then when it first launched. The Samsung Galaxy Tab S 8.4 T705 is one of those tablets to include an 8.4 inch, 2560x1600 resolution screen and the Super AMOLED panel looks very sharp. The balance of colours is amazing, avoiding over-saturation but giving enough oomph to truly make images pop. Viewing angles and brightness settings are more than adequate, regardless of what you're doing. Even the hardware performance holds up well. The Exynos 5420 CPU offers eight cores and it's accompanied by 3 GB of RAM. This particular model has 16 GB flash memory with a microSDXC slot for up to 128 GB of storage. Connectivity options include Wi-Fi, 3G, Bluetooth 4.0, HDMI support and 4G. The 8 megapixel rear camera feels out of place, due to the device's size but it's an option for those who want it. Unfortunately, the same can't be said about Samsung's additional features. Unlike the modern iteration of TouchWiz, the Samsung Galaxy Tab S 8.4 T705's interface is chockfull of features like WatchOn, Smart Stay, Multi-Window, SideSync 3.0, Samsung Magazine and so on. If most consumers use Google Hangouts and WhatsApp, why include another messaging app like ChatOn? Then there's the fingerprint sensor. While this could have been a good feature, its implementation isn't very good on the Samsung Galaxy Tab S 8.4 T705. Android 4.4.2 KitKat is at least reliable here with its usual Google Now options and apps. It could have been much better without TouchWiz Nature UX 3.0 weighing it down and consuming resources. Other recommendations: Obviously, the best alternative to any Samsung tablet is an iPad. Given the general price of most iPad tablets, the only real alternative is the Apple iPad Mini 3. This costs Rs. 28,799 and features the very powerful A7, a 64-bit processor. While the overall RAM might be lower than the Samsung Galaxy Tab S 8.4 T705, its performance could arguably be called better. Either way, it's a strong tablet. The processor is accompanied by 16 GB of internal storage (no microSD slot) and the beautiful 7.9 inch Retina Display with IPS technology and a 2048x1536 resolution. The iPad Mini 3 also has a better fingerprint sensor and longer battery life. It should be noted that this particular model features Wi-Fi but no 3G or 4G so that's something to keep in mind. At least it's compatible with iOS 9.
