Samsung Galaxy Tab S7 FE Specs

Name Value

The Samsung Galaxy Tab S7 FE (starting at 529.99) is a compelling alternative to the Apple iPad Pro (12.9-inch, 2021) and Samsung’s own Galaxy Tab S7. It has an immersive 12.4-inch display, supports the company’s S Pen stylus, and will even let you tack on 5G connectivity for a little extra. Those features, however, come with a few notable caveats. For starters, the Galaxy Tab S7 FE struggles with more hardware-intensive tasks, and its big display isn’t on par with what you’ll find on more expensive tablets. But it’s good for use with undemanding apps, and now that Samsung is improving the One UI ecosystem, you’ll get extra mileage out of using it in tandem with Samsung phones and laptops.

Familiar Design

The Galaxy Tab S7 FE sports a familiar design to the higher-end slates it’s competing against. Its unibody frame and chassis are made of aluminum. The Wi-Fi version is available in black, green, pink, or silver. If you want or need 5G connectivity, your style decision will be much easier, since that model is only available in black.

The tablet measures 11.2 by 7.3 by 0.3 inches (WHD) and weighs 1.3 pounds. No doubt about it, the Galaxy Tab S7 FE is heavy, but the weight is well distributed. And though it’s not something you’d want to hold for hours on end, it’s light enough for your morning commute.

In landscape mode, the slim camera stack and S Pen connector are positioned along the top edge of the case. The magnetic stylus dock isn’t as powerful as what you’ll find on iPad models that work with the second-generation Apple Pencil, so you’re probably going to lose your S Pen unless you spring for a case that holds it.

Lenovo Yoga Tab 13

On the top of the tablet, there’s a power button, a volume rocker, and a SIM/microSD slot. The buttons provide a satisfying click when tapped, but are difficult to reach in portrait mode. The power button lacks an integrated fingerprint sensor, which doesn’t seem like a big deal until you’re forced to enter your PIN every time you want to unlock the tablet.

There’s a connector for the optional Bookcover Keyboard Case on the bottom. The Galaxy Tab S7 FE’s keyboard lacks the trackpad that’s on the keyboard for the regular Galaxy Tab S7. Speakers flank each side of the tablet, and there’s a USB-C charging port on the left.

A 12.4-inch, 2,560-by-1,600-pixel LCD dominates the front of the Tab S7 FE. The display is bright, with excellent color accuracy, but there’s something off about it. I found myself putting it down after an hour of reading or scrolling through social media due to eye fatigue.

The Galaxy Tab S7 FE’s 60Hz refresh rate is a big step down from the Tab S7’s 120Hz. (Photo: Steven Winkelman)

Sure, the Tab S7 FE lacks the 120Hz refresh rate and AMOLED display of its more expensive sibling, but I don’t think that’s the issue. Most products I review have low-res LCD panels with 60Hz refresh rates, and I’ve never had a similar eyestrain experience with a comparable display.

You’ll find two powerful speakers on the Tab S7 FE. Both are tuned by AKG and support Dolby Atmos. Maximum volume clocks in at 94db, which is loud enough to fill a room. Soundstage is immersive and the timbre is lush. You’ll even notice a hint of bass.

Bluetooth 5.0 is on board for wireless audio. There’s also dual-Band Wi-Fi. Wi-Fi 6, NFC, and wireless charging are missing from the mix.

Midrange Hardware

A Qualcomm Snapdragon 750G chipset powers the the 5G version of the Galaxy Tab S7 FE; the less-expensive Wi-Fi model has the newer Snapdragon 778 mobile platform. It’s a strange decision, since the Snapdragon 778 has a smaller 6nm process, a slightly higher clock speed, and better instruction set architecture. In theory, there shouldn’t be a huge difference between the two, but published benchmarks on the Wi-Fi model of the Tab S7 FE appear to be a little higher.

The array of configurations is also odd. The Wi-Fi version of the tablet can be had with 64GB of storage/4GB of RAM, 128GB/6GB, or 256GB/6GB. I reviewed the 5G version, which only comes with 64GB/4GB. You can add up to 1TB of external storage with a microSD card, but there’s no way to upgrade the RAM.

While the pricier Galaxy Tab S7 models can handle just about any task you throw their way, the Galaxy Tab S7 FE’s hardware struggles with multitasking. If you like to have multiple apps and dozens of Chrome tabs open at once, you’ll want to consider going for one of the Wi-Fi models with 6GB of RAM. And if you’re looking for a tablet that can chew through any workload, check out the Galaxy Tab S7 or even the entry-level iPad instead.

Gamers who are used to flagship-quality smartphone hardware will find the Galaxy Tab S7 FE to be a bit of a letdown. I noticed longer load times on all of the games I tried, and there were a few skipped frames while playing Genshin Impact.

Benchmarks underscored our experience. On Geekbench 5, a suite of tests that quantify raw computing power, the Galaxy Tab S7 FE earned 656 single-core (SC) and 1,929 multi-core (MC) scores. The Galaxy Tab S7 scored 998 SC and 3,814 MC on the same test, and even the cheapest iPad soundly bested the Galaxy Tab S7 FE with scores of 1,338 SC and 2,979 MC.

The 5G version of the Galaxy Tab S7 FE has a Qualcomm Snapdragon X52 with Band support for every carrier. There’s no mmWave support, however, so you’re not going to get the same super-fast speeds that are possible—albeit unlikely—on the Galaxy Tab S7. I tested the tablet on ATT’s 5G network in Chicago and recorded speeds of 27.8Mbps down and 21.1Mbps up; that’s not incredible, but it’s sufficient for 4K video streaming.

Samsung packed the same 10,090mAh battery in the Galaxy Tab S7 FE as you’ll find in the more expensive Tab S7, which is a very good thing. In our battery drain test, which streams HD video over Wi-Fi at full brightness, the tablet lasted for 9 hours and 11 minutes before powering down. That’s significantly longer than the Galaxy Tab S7’s 7 hours and 21 minutes.

If you use the 15W power adapter that comes in the box, it takes about 4 hours to completely recharge. There’s also support for 45W fast charging with an optional adapter.

What Happened to the Cameras?

The Galaxy Tab S7 FE has a pretty basic camera setup. On the back you’ll find an 8MP camera lens. A 5MP selfie cam is on the front.

In good light, the rear sensor does a decent job. It can quickly identify objects you want to scan, and references shots look fine. In low light, our test shots had edge noise and background blurring.

The front-facing camera is mediocre, no matter the amount of light. Our test photos and videos looked flat and I noticed some noise. Low-light test images were splotchy and flat.

Neither of these cameras will come close to replacing your smartphone, but that’s probably fine. The rear camera is fine for normal work-related tasks. I wish Samsung had put a slightly better selfie camera in the Galaxy Tab S7 FE for video calls, but it works well enough.

The S Pen Just Feels Good

Like the Galaxy Tab S7 and S7 models, the Galaxy Tab S7 FE comes with an S Pen in the box. It’s a basic model; it doesn’t need to be charged, nor does it have any of the special Bluetooth features you’ll find on more expensive styli. That said, it’s a pretty incredible stylus that rivals the Apple Pencil 2.

If you’re not a fan of Apple’s slippery Pencil tip, you’ll want to give Samsung’s S Pen a go. It’s a lot thinner and offers some resistance as it slides across the screen, so it doesn’t feel like you’re writing on glass. I prefer the way it feels over the Apple Pencil.

I did pick up on some very slight lag with the Tab S7 FE’s S Pen. You probably won’t notice it unless you’re paying very close attention, and it’s not distracting in the least. Still, if you’re looking for a stylus with zero lag, you’ll want to go for the more expensive Galaxy Tab S7 models.

Maybe One UI can Save Android

When I wrote the Galaxy Tab S7 review, I was pretty critical about Android and One UI. Since then, both Google and Samsung have upped their game, and the OS is very smooth on the Galaxy Tab S7 FE.

The tablet ships with Android 11 and One UI 3.1. Samsung’s productivity apps mostly replicate Google’s, but they’ve become much more useful now that most of them, including Samsung Notes and Tasks, integrate with Microsoft 365.

It also seems like Samsung is really working on a cohesive ecosystem that continues to get better. If you stick with Samsung products, your experience will be close to seamless.

I use a Samsung Galaxy Z Fold3 5G, a Galaxy Book Pro 360, and a Galaxy Tab S7 as my daily drivers. With the trio, I can easily copy and paste links from one device to another, use nearly all of my Z Fold3 5G’s apps on my laptop, and use Quick Share to send photos and files among devices. And since everything is backed up to OneDrive, I usually don’t even need to use Quick Share—I can just search for the item on any of my devices.

To be perfectly honest, it’s not quite as slick as Apple’s iOS, iPadOS, and MacOS integration, but it’s close. Over the past year, Samsung has made major improvements to One UI, and I expect to see the ecosystem continue to mature.

One UI 3.1 includes minor improvements to DeX (desktop-mimicking) mode. It’s less buggy, Microsoft 365 integration is improved, and it connects via Wi-Fi more consistently. It’s still not going to replace your computer, but it works well in a pinch.

Finally, Samsung is embracing long-term device updates. Its current policy supports three Android upgrades and four years of security patches. Sure, Samsung isn’t nearly as fast at updates as Apple, but upgrades seem to ship faster on its unlocked devices.

A Affordable Productivity Tablet

The Samsung Galaxy Tab S7 FE gets a lot right. It has an excellent build quality, comes with an S Pen in the box, and gets years of OS upgrades. It just isn’t as powerful as its pricier competitors. If you just use your tablet to stream video or do general tasks, the Tab S7 FE is more than up to the task. If you’re hoping to use it a laptop replacement, however, you’ll probably want to spend more on a different model. Although the Galaxy Tab S7 is pricier, it packs enough power to help you finish even the most demanding tasks. And if you aren’t committed to Samsung and/or Android, the iPad Pro line remains a strong alternative.

Samsung Galaxy Tab S8 vs. Microsoft Surface Pro 8

Microsoft and Samsung produce some of the best tablets you can buy, especially considering the latest releases from both companies.

If you’re looking for the differences between the Microsoft Surface Pro 8 and the Samsung Galaxy Tab S8, look no further. These two tablets run completely different operating systems but share some heritage, making them both enticing for the price. We’ve also included comparisons with the larger Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra for good measure.


We start first with price, which is what matters most for your wallet. Microsoft’s Surface Pro 8 begins at 1,100, and that’s just the price of the tablet itself. This is the cost of a base model with an Intel Core i5 processor, 8GB of RAM, and a 128 GB SSD. If you want more storage or a faster processor, you can kick the price all the way up to 1,900 for a model with an Intel Core i7 processor, 16GB of RAM, and a 512 GB SSD. Mid-range models with the Core i7 processor, 16GB RAM, and 256GB of storage come in at 1,600.

With the Surface Pro 8, the Surface Slim Pen 2 and the Type Cover are not included in that price. If you want those for cheaper, a bundle starts at 1,528.97. That includes the base Pro 8, a Signature Type Cover (with the Surface Slim Pen 2), Microsoft Complete Protection, and Microsoft 365. Otherwise, the Slim Pen and Type Cover are separate purchases of 129 and 180 respectively.

Looking at the design, things seem similar at first. Both tablets are made of premium materials and are on even footing. However, the Surface Pro 8 will have one advantage over the Galaxy Tab S8, as we get into later.

In terms of design material, the Surface Pro 8 sports a signature anodized aluminum coating and comes in either graphite or platinum color options. The Galaxy Tab S8 series, meanwhile, sports what Samsung is calling “Armor Aluminum.” It comes in graphite color on the Tab S8 Ultra, or silver, pink, or gold on the Tab S8 Plus and Tab S8.

Generally, this design material means the tablets are on even footing in terms of weight. The 11-inch Tab S8 is the most portable variant, coming in at 9.99 inches by 6.51 inches by 0.25 inches, with a 1.1-pound weight. The 12.4-inch Tab S8 Plus measures 11.22 inches by 7.28 inches by 0.22 inches and weighs 1.27 pounds. The 14-inch Tab S8 Ultra is a mammoth, as it has dimensions of 12.85 inches by 8.21 inches by 0.22 inches and weighs in at 1.6 pounds.

The Surface Pro 8 comes close to that Tab S8 Ultra in weight at 1.96 pounds. But in terms of dimensions, the Surface Pro 8 is closer to the Tab S8 Plus at 11.3 inches by 8.2 inches by 0.37 inches.

Note that the Surface Pro 8 has a built-in kickstand, which gives it what gives it a big advantage. This makes the device more comfortable to use when you’re inking, watching movies, or using it as a laptop.

Samsung’s Galaxy Tab S8 series does not have a built-in kickstand. However, there’s a place on the back of the Tab S8 for the S Pen, whereas on the Pro 8, you’ll have to house the Surface Slim Pen inside the keyboard for charging.

Without that keyboard, you’ll have to buy a Slim Pen charging cradle for an additional 100 or opt for keeping an older Surface Pen with a built-in replaceable battery separately.

Looking at other design features, the Surface Pro 8 has some upgradability. You can pop out the solid-state drive from under the kickstand and install one of a bigger size. The Galaxy Tab S8 series doesn’t have this, but it lets you expand storage with a microSD card of up to 1TB.

In terms of the overall look of the device, the Surface Pro 8 has a more rounded design. The Tab S8 series is more squared off, like the iPad Pro. You’ll have to decide which is more comfortable for you, but both tablets seem to be even in weight — with the exception of the Tab S8 Ultra.


The Galaxy Tab S8 series is a bit more complicated if you look at the display since there are three sizes. The cheaper Tab S8 sports an 11-inch TFT LCD Display tuned to 120Hz and a resolution of 2550 x 1600. The Tab S8 Plus has a 12.4-inch AMOLED panel and kicks the resolution up to 2800 x 1752. Finally, the Tab S8 Ultra is at the top of the top with 2960 x 1848 resolution. All these displays have the same 120Hz refresh rate as the Surface Pro 8 for smoother scrolling and gaming.

The Tab S8 Ultra has the closest resolution to the Surface Pro 8, but note that the display is uniform with similar-sized bezels all around on the intro and mid-range Tab S8 models — with the exception being the Tab S8 Plus, which has a small notch up at the top of the screen. Also, keep in mind the standard Tab S8 has an LCD panel, which won’t be as vibrant as the AMOLED on the mid-range and high-end version. It’s the same kind of panel found on the Surface Pro 8.

All in all, the Surface Pro 8 might have support for haptics on its screen. It has some bigger bezels along the top and the bottom of the screen. It’s also sporting LCD panels, which aren’t as vibrant as the AMOLED panels on the Tab S8 series, which produce more vibrant and bright colors. We pick the Tab S8 here.


The Galaxy Tab S8 series and Surface Pro 8 are very different in performance. While the Pro 8 features a computer-grade processor and can be a desktop replacement for some people, the Tab S8 series is more of a mobile device that tries to replace your computer. Here’s a little more on why we say that.

With the Surface Pro 8, you’re getting a device with 11th generation Intel Core i5 or Intel Core i7 Processors and a familiar desktop experience powered by Windows 11. These are quad-core processors, that can power light photo and video editing. Intel’s Iris Plus graphics also mean that you can run desktop versions of Photoshop and not worry about the hassle of mobile-first apps. We liked the Surface Pro 8’s overall performance a lot and found that it lead the pack against other 13-inch laptops.

Surface Pro 8 and Galaxy Tab S8 series are neck and neck. Both are premium tablets. The biggest deciding factor will come down to preferring Android or Windows, and that has less to do with these individual products. Thanks to its app ecosystem, the Galaxy Tab S8 will having a better touch and tablet experience. It’s also a much cheaper device.

The Surface Pro 8’s strengths lie primarily in its ability to replicate the complete desktop experience. With DeX, Android just can’t quite compete with the full functionality of Windows 11, even on a 2-in-1 like this.

The best large-screen tablets you can buy starting at 369

Not all devices need to be small and ultra-portable. Samsung, Microsoft, and Apple offer tablets with big screens, ample storage, and awesome performance.

The best tablets have traditionally been a large-screened alternative to smartphones. But just as the display sizes of phones continue to grow, tablets have seen their screen size increase as well. This is a welcomed trend for those who do a lot of work on a tablet, including students or those who work remotely and want something thin and lightweight but with a large screen.

The best tablets (aren’t all iPads)

Choosing the best tablet can be tricky. Yes, the top picks include the Apple iPad and iPad Pro, but we also love the Samsung Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra, Microsoft Surface Go 3, and others.

Here’s a perfect example: Samsung has been selling tablets for years, usually in two different sizes, with a “Plus” model being the biggest. However, earlier this year, Samsung announced the Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra with a 14.6-inch display.- the largest Samsung has used in a tablet.

So it begs the question.- who else makes tablets with large displays? It turns out, there are more options than you’d think. Not all of them approach 15 inches, but there’s more than enough screen real estate in the picks below.

Apple iPad Pro 12.9-inch 6th generation

Best large tablet overall

  • Big, vibrant display
  • iPadOS 16.1’s new multitasking feature Strong performance thanks to M2 chip

Apple iPad Pro tech specs: Display: 12.9-inch Liquid Retina XDR display with ProMotion and True Tone | Processor: Apple Silicon M2 | Storage: 128GB, 256GB, 512GB, 1TB or 2TB | Biometrics: Face ID | Colors: Silver, space gray | Cameras: 12MP wide, 10MP ultrawide rear and 12MP TrueDepth FaceTime front | Weight: 1.5 pounds | Dimensions: 11.04 x 8.46 x 0.25 inches | Connections: USB-C Thunderbolt/USB-4 | Battery life: 10 hours

Apple’s 2022 iPad Pro lineup is by far the most capable and impressive iPad lineup we’ve seen, making it our best overall pick. It’s also the most expensive by a long shot. The design hasn’t changed all that much on the outside, but on the inside, you’ll find Apple’s M2 processor which consists of 20 billion transistors.- 25 percent more than the M1. It’s the same exact processor that Apple is using in the new 13-inch MacBook Pro and MacBook Air.

I spent some time with the 12.9-inch Apple iPad Pro and found it to be faster and more capable than any other iPad model I’ve tested to date. You can expect downloads up to 2.4Gbps, twice as fast as the previous model, 15 percent faster performance, and up to 35 percent faster graphics performance.

The Pro also supports the second-generation Apple Pencil, and there’s a new hover feature thanks to the M2 chip. The feature works like this: Once the tip of the Apple Pencil gets near the iPad Pro’s display, and when it’s within 12 millimeters, parts of the interface come to life in apps that support the new feature. The Smart Connector is on the back of the iPad Pro, giving you the option to use it with the Magic Keyboard which includes backlit keys and a trackpad, or Apple’s Smart Keyboard.

And, although the differences between the 5th generation and 6th generation models are more subtle, the M2 chip is really what shines here, making it a powerhouse tablet. The iPad Pro, combined with iPadOS and the M2 chip, is as close as you can get to a laptop without actually buying a laptop.
