The market for smartphones already has come to a certain level of saturation. Moreover, the demand for tablets has become very ignorable. Only, few companies are in the tablet business. However, if you are someone who is fond of using tablets, you have a great news. The Samsung Galaxy Tab S4 is out in the market.
However, before buying this tablet there are a few things which must be considered. First of all, there is no fingerprint sensor. In recent times, we have come to expect fingerprint sensor in just every mobile device. However, the Samsung has chosen to by-pass the features on Tab S4. Rather, there is facial unlock or iris scanning unlock.
Further, if you want to use the Tab S4 as a productivity machine, it’s better to buy a keyboard. Samsung calls it the Book Cover Keyboard, giving you a comfortable typing experience. The keyboard connects the tablet using the POGO connection system. It will cost you $150 (~Rs. 15,000 only), if you order it with the tablet, it will cost you half the price.
Besides these problems or disappointments, there is also good news. You don’t have to the S Pen separately, it comes included with the tab. It will be much bigger S Pen compared to what you will find with the Galaxy Note 8.
Further, you can also run the Dex interface directly to the Tab S4. Samsung has also made a special keyboard which will automatically launch Dex once its connected to the tab.
