Gadget: Samsung TabPro S

pro

Today tech companies are coming up with innovations that are targetted at replacing the laptop craze. Windows gave us the surface pro, apple recently released the iPad pro and now Samsung has unvieled its TabPro S. Like any good tablet, the TabPro S is remarkably thin and light at 6.3mm and just over 450g. It shares a lot of design traits with Samsung’s Galaxy line of Android smartphones. It has a metal frame, an incredibly bright and vibrant Super AMOLED display, and is as well put together as any of Samsung’s recent flagship smartphones. It charges via a single USB Type-C port, and has a speaker on each side. On its own, the TabPro S is a bit big and clunky.
Like other 12-inch tablets, it is too large and heavy to comfortably use for casual entertainment. But it really comes to life when you attach it into its keyboard case. Included with the TabPro S, the case has a full-size keyboard, complete with a function row and plenty of shortcuts, and a trackpad. It connects to the bottom of the tablet with a pogo-pin connector, and offers two angles for typing.
The whole thing snaps to the back of the tablet with magnets and folds up into a really compact folio when it’s time to leave, with the keyboard case attached and closed. However, the tablet slows down a bit, having freezing moments meaning its 4GB RAM does not serve it right.

The good
• Sleek and portable design
• Compact keyboard case that works well
• Bright, sharp display

The bad
• 4GB of RAM is not enough
• Battery life not as good as advertised
• Single USB Type-C port can be limiting
