MWC 2017: Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 hands-on

24 February 2017
Just as expected, the Samsung Galaxy S8 pair did not make their debut at MWC 2017. The Korean giant has a more lavish introduction planned soon. But, even while holding out on us, Samsung still brought quite a few goodies to introduce at the Barcelona venue. The Galaxy Tab S3 is definitely among the most exciting, as it has the potential to breathe new life into the company's stagnant tablet business.

be careful about spending too much money on samsung "flagship" devices - they wont leave good enough alone , theyll send u updates after updates ( some useful , others just junk ) to ultimately slow our "flagship" devices down and turn their performance to the same level as cheap devices ! probably a ploy to make us buy new ones but hey ! we're smarter thah that !

Xperia XZ Premium still have a Snapdragon 835 compared to this tablet with Snapdragon 820. Even OnePlus 3T have better specs but priced at a lower price than this!

i got one s3 tab .. but ther s no SIM card slot , only SD card slot s ther
is avalibale another model.?

i dont get why they would need to release a tablet at this time when the snapdragon 835 chip isn't available for anyphone except the galaxy s8. i would expect them to release another tab s3 model that actually has this chip and gets better specs. maybe they'll even call it the galaxy tab s3 pro or the s3+

Anonymous, 04 Mar 2017Only 130 mAh more battery but it is 10% heavier than Tab S2... moreIt's the stupid glass back, adds a lot of weight. Completely retarded.

Disappointing for the incredibly high price. Unless you need the stylus might as well get the lighter and much cheaper S2.

Only 130 mAh more battery but it is 10% heavier than Tab S2. NO. THANKS.

In a world starved of good flagship Android tablets, the Tab S3 will surely make a good splash. It's excellent in almost every way. It would have been perfect with 16:10 QHD screen (for media consumption) and a better autofocus selfie camera (for video conferencing). Maybe they could have made it IP68 with SD 835 but that's fine.

BTW how did GSMA take the Tab S3 to their HQ so soon after MWC?! :D

Nick, 26 Feb 2017I'm afraid it does not come close to the 2016 9.7" Ipad Pro... moreOr you have no clue what you are talking about but it's ok

How about software support, can get 2 major upgrade?

  • Xoxo

Samsung disappointed me with this latest version of a tabet

  • Force Majeure

Looks nice and all, but you can get a 820-device today for €200 and who actually buys a tablet these days?

  • Nick

I'm afraid it does not come close to the 2016 9.7" Ipad Pro in terms of processing power or battery life. Pricing doesn't do it any favor. Unfortunately Samsung dropped the ball on tablets.

Super spec and S Pen, seems Samsung got perfect successor for the tablet series.
