From Zoom calls in the garden, to Netflix on the couch and everything in between, tablets have proven to be an invaluable tool, especially as most of us are spending more time at home.
While it’s tempting to rush in and grab the first one that comes to mind, not all tablets are made equal. Some might sacrifice design for power, while others promise productivity while channeling the dull energy of a bland utilitarian rectangle. And then there’s the Samsung Galaxy Tab S7 FE 5G — a tablet that’s truly in a class of its own.
Combining head-turning looks with raw, unadulterated power (with plenty of clever tricks and features thrown in to boot), it serves up the ultimate tablet experience with zero compromises.
Here are five reasons why the Galaxy Tab S7 FE 5G will serve you well for years to come.
Looks to kill
In a world filled with unimaginative cookie-cutter slabs of glass, the Galaxy Tab S7 FE 5G truly stands out like no other. Available in a plethora of stunning colours (Mystic Black, Silver, Green and Pink), you can rest assured knowing that you’ve got plenty of options to perfectly match your own unique style.
Colours aside, the sleek, minimal metal body is a joy to hold, thanks to its rounded corners, incredibly thin 6.3mm profile, and lightweight 608g build. The end result is a device that won’t cause any arm fatigue, even if you’re binge watching your favourite show.
Sharp screen, punchy sound
Flip the Galaxy Tab S7 FE 5G round, and your eyes will be treated to a glorious 12.4in screen that’s rammed with 2560 x 1600 pixels. Not only does this result in crystal clear detail and super-sharp text, but its larger size means that the movie-watching and web browsing experience is comparable to that of an actual laptop, minus the bulk and weight.
Speaking of movies, your ears will be thankful for the built-in dual speakers, powered by AKG and Dolby Atmos sound, offering a loud, immersive stereo audio experience that belies the sleek and portable build.
Power in spades
Beneath the sleek unibody build and vibrant screen lies all the power you’ll ever need, and then some. The Galaxy Tab S7 FE 5G packs the power of a beastly Snapdragon 750G octa-core processor, along with up to 128GB of storage and 6GB of RAM, with the option to boost the storage up to a massive 1TB, thanks to a MicroSD slot.
The result of all this power is a tablet that will positively fly through any task you care to throw at it, from web browsing with multiple tabs, to emailing, document editing, doodling, movie-watching, gaming and more. And if that wasn’t enough, you’ve got enough grunt under the hood to launch and run three apps at once, making it a veritable godsend for multitaskers and productivity fiends alike.
Things are taken one step further when Samsung DeX is thrown into the equation too — a feature which essentially turns the tablet experience into that of a PC, complete with a taskbar, easy access to apps and files, and more. Combined with the optional Keyboard Cover, it makes for a formidable productivity tool, especially if you’ve got a compatible Galaxy phone that lets you seamlessly move between websites from device to device.
Throw in 5G connectivity for ultra-fast downloads, lag-free gaming and smooth, crisp video calls, and you’ve got yourself a tablet that can handle anything, even while you’re out and about. With a massive 10,090mAh battery thrown in too, it’ll last up to a whopping 13 hours when you’re watching videos, while the 45W fast charger will have you back up to full charge from empty in just 90 minutes.
The power of the pen
Another feature that lets the Galaxy Tab S7 FE 5G stand out from the crowd is the mighty S Pen. Included in the box, Samsung’s turbocharged stylus serves up a natural writing experience, letting you jot down notes that can, if you desire, be turned into digital text in real time, like magic. Combined with the Noteshelf app which provides hundreds of notebook covers and paper templates for free, this is a tablet that comfortably doubles up as a bonafide notebook, albeit one with infinite pages and potential.
Magnetically attaching to the tablet for easy storage and with no need to charge, the S Pen is also an incredibly powerful tool for artists, doodlers and digital creatives, thanks to its accuracy and pressure sensitivity. Paired with a six-month license for Clip Studio Paint, you can do anything from creating digital masterpieces to creating comics, storyboarding, inking and more. In addition, the PENUP app is a handy social network you can use to connect and interact with other artists and creatives, letting you share your work and admire other people’s creations too.
More affordable than ever
Starting at £589 for the 64GB version, the Galaxy Tab S7 FE 5G is available now, and there’s never been a better time to snap one up, thanks to a £60 cashback offer. You can also get a further £50 cashback boost when you buy another eligible item, and both offers are available until 7 July.
Samsung is also currently throwing in two months of YouTube Premium into the mix, as well as the ability to knock the price down even further if you trade in another eligible device such as a phone or tablet, and a further 5% cashback through Samsung Pay.
