Poll results: Is the Galaxy Tab S Samsung's best tablet ever?

Earlier this month, Samsung presented the Galaxy Tab S as its “best tablet yet” - a good occasion for us to run a poll asking you if the company’s right: is the Tab S the best slate that Samsung made until now?

73.21% of those who voted (1,306 users) agree with Samsung, believing that the Galaxy Tab S is indeed the best tablet the company released thus far. 478 voters (26.79%) disagree, apparently thinking that the presence of an Exynos 5 Octa 5420 processor, or the lack of a stylus (found on the Note series) are some of the reasons why the Tab S isn’t Samsung’s greatest tablet.

Both Galaxy Tab S models - the 10.5-inch and the 8.4-inch one - sport Super AMOLED displays with 1600 x 2560 pixels, being the world’s first tablets to feature high-res AMOLED screens. Of course, the two slates offer more than just advanced displays, including 8 MP rear cameras, 3 GB of RAM, expandable storage space, fingerprint scanners, and Android 4.4 KitKat - all in ultra-thin packages.

The Samsung Galaxy Tab S 10.5 and Tab S 8.4 are available in the US and other markets since June. The 10.5-inch model costs $499, while the smaller 8.4-inch one can be yours for $399.

Correction: Nokia and Sony fanboys. The two herds are always in Apple and Samsung articles, just like you are right now. Ironic?

Your a Shamesung fanboy, not me. Just saying that plastic and you need to accept that because I saw on your profile that your using Shamesung Galaxy Note 3 if I'm not mistaken.

LOL.....do understand the meaning of the word 'fanboy' ? It is a person who chooses a product/side (in this case an OEM) without a logical explanation. Now I challenge you find me anyone one of my comment where I don't state a logical reasoning behind my point.

BTW, I've also spoken against Samsung and Google on several occassion but your biased eyes only sees what it wants to see and ignores the rest. That's not my problem.

It makes any other tablet (besides iPad Air) worthless.

One thing that surprised me about the Galaxy Tab S was that in inverse text mode, i.e. light colored text on a black background, ebooks are actually quite readable.

The slight fuzziness of pentile for anti-aliased fonts is much harder to discern when text is on a dark/black background, making the text itself more legible.

Inverse text mode is also nicer to read at night as the entire screen is not lit up, like a normal tablet or Kindle paperwhite.

Now all Samsung has to do is convince Amazon and others to optimize their ebook viewers for inverse text mode. Unfortunately, this isn't too likely as there would be no compelling reason to buy a Kindle.

While I'm not a huge fan of TouchWiz (hate it actually) I do love the amoled screens and inverted colours for reading are great for saving battery life too.
I use it a lot on my tab 7.7 reading at night.
