What makes the Samsung Galaxy Tab S8 Plus special?
In my review of the Galaxy Tab S8 Plus, I praised it excellent workmanship, the excellent display with 120 Hz technology, the great speakers and the performance of the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 that leaves nothing to be desired. Samsung’s One UI also offers many practical functions, there is a long update guarantee and, in contrast to the iPad, the input pen S Pen does not have to be purchased separately.
There were deductions for the meager number of tablet apps and the fact that the Mains plug is no longer included in the scope of delivery.
Nevertheless: At a price of 889.92 euros (view at MediaMarkt), the Galaxy Tab S8 Plus with 256 GB and 5G is a real bargain. If you are looking for a well-equipped high-end tablet with an Android operating system, you can buy it without hesitation.
