Galaxy TabPro S – Microsoft & Samsung
Collaboration is a key word in business today, especially in taking on burgeoning competitors. Microsoft and Samsung have combined to produce an office product that will serious give the Apple iPad a run for its money. The 12-inch Galaxy TabPro S combines an Intel processor with Windows 10 technology, thus allowing access to the growing range of Windows apps. Combining these with Samsung Galaxy Apps, productivity can now sky rocket. Let’s examine some of the features of this new release. Samsung has taken some of the Windows 10 flaws and corrected them when including them in the TabPro S.
Galaxy TabPro S – Design
The Galaxy TabPro S has incorporated many of the popular features of Microsoft’s Surface Pro tablet/laptop range. Where Samsung has excelled is that it has included a keyboard as part of the overall package, whereas the Surface Pro has it as an optional extra. Some reviewers find the Samsung keyboard noisy and a little more difficult to use compared to the Surface Pro, but I guess with any product, there will be a feature that doesn’t fit exactly with what we were expecting. Just the fact that the keyboard is standard adds to the appeal of the Galaxy TabPro S. One key aspect of this new baby is the lightweight feel of it. It is only 6.3 mm thick and weighs in at a market leading 693 grams. Carry it around all day without any discomfort – it is office mobility at its best, after all.
Galaxy TabPro S – Performance and Productivity
This new player in the tablet game comes with an Intel Core M processor and features only 4.5W power consumption so that efficiency is improved and noise reduced. The processor measures at 2.2Ghz while the unit has 4GB of RAM and a choice of 128GB or 256GB of built-in storage. Is this processor the best available? Maybe not, but it will certainly provide sufficient grunt in the engine room to give a user experience to please the majority.
Galaxy TabPro S – Battery and Display
Let’s begin with the display. As is standard now on Samsung displays, it has an AMOLED display that has deep color contrast and 94% of natural tones showing true-to-life color and detail. Gamers will love it as will avid movie watchers. It is Entertainment Central combined with Business Central. It is rated by other reviewers as best in its class.
Galaxy TabPro S – Cost
So, with all of the above considered, what will it cost to get your hands on it? Amazon has it on sale for $US897.00 which includes a number of accessories. Of course, as mentioned, the keyboard comes standard. Adding the Microsoft Office 365 software suite will add another $130 to it. Australian readers can find one for about $A1350.00 at JB HiFi which is for the Wi-Fi 128GB version. The 256GB and/or 4G model will give the price a kick skyward!
Galaxy TabPro S – Conclusion
