Review| Samsung Tab S 10.5″

I’ve spent the last two weeks getting to grips with the Samsung Tab S 10.5″.Review| Samsung Tab S 10.5″

DSCF0129Given that an average day for me involves working out, heading to the studio, pattern cutting, some sketchbook, sewing, annotating, using social media, responding to emails then unwinding with music or a film while cooking and taking an insane amount of images I tend to use my devices alot and battery power is super important, the tab managed to keep up and one day I forgot to charge it for the next day so I turned it to Ultra Power Saver Mode and it lasted me the entire next day!

Ultra Power Saver Mode is a pretty cool feature I have on my Samsung S5 and Tab 10% battery will last you 24 hours – great for those times when you forget to charge or leave your charger somewhere.

Watching HD videos and Netflix the clarity and colours are very vibrant.

Another feature I love is the SideSync 3.0. Basically I can control my S5 using my tablet. Given how often I misplace my phone while working this is a neat feature which means I miss fewer calls and texts.

With the handy multi-tasking feature is soo easy to flit between programs it works like a split screen so I can Instagram something and check the brands Twitter handle at the same time see an example here.

I reccomend apps like VSCO Cam, Pinterest, ArtFlow/Sketchbook Express if you draw, Fontest you get to try out fonts – great for my projects,Colour Reference (helps with creating colour schemes),My Fitness Pal and SNotes which comes preloaded!


It is not available in black ( but the Tab S comes in ‘Dazzling White’ and ‘Titanium Bronze’)


Lightweight and fits into my bags (lighter than the iPad Air)

For the UK launch of the Tab S there was a 26×14 foot rainbow created with 150 tabletson London’s Southbank to show just how great and sharp colours look on the tab.
