Don’t judge this book by what’s in it

The Galaxy Tab S4 is in a strange place. Priced at Rs. 57,900, Samsung’s flagship tablet is decidedly impressively priced and offers attractive specs, as long as you don’t pay too much attention to the processor – a Snapdragon 835. This is a big part of my work as the first time this big back box with ‘ Tab S4’ written on it in Samsung’s favorite font with their favorite blue color, I was a little disappointed to see a processor that is 1 gen and will be 2 generations once Qualcomm announces its new flagship Snadragon 855 Mobile Platform (probably until the end of this year). While I wouldn’t blame you if you’re tempted to dismiss this tablet without a second glance, I’d be wrong not to say that it still works well.

Galaxy Tab S4 performance review

As usual, I ran some benchmarks with the Tab S4 to get a general idea of ​​what to expect from this tablet, followed by some basic day-to-day usage and a few games just to see how it performs in real-world scenarios.


I ran the Tab S4 through two benchmarks – Geekbench 4 and AnTuTu and the results were pretty much what you’d expect from a tablet package on a Snapdragon 835 with 4GB of RAM. On Geekbench 4, the Tab scored S4 1854 in the single-core test and 6365 in the multi-core -Test, which is comparable to other Snapdragon 835 devices and obviously inferior to devices packing in a Snapdragon 845. On AnTuTu, the Tab S4 managed a good score of 201,986.

Use in real world

In terms of real-world usage, the Tab S4 doesn’t disappoint. Whether you’re using it for productivity, watching movies, or playing PUBG Mobile (no), the Tab S4 can handle it all flawlessly.

Everything runs fine on the Tab S4 Animations are nice and clean, switching between apps is quick and easy. and overall everything looks perfect. Even in standalone DeX mode, the Tab S4 works great. In terms of performance, there are a few minor issues here and there, e.g. B. the fact that Chrome’s loading animation often drops frames and the app drawer takes a second before responding to keystrokes, but that’s where it really is. This makes standalone DeX mode pretty good too. It can easily handle multiple open tabs without you giving up, and it’s definitely a really cool feature.

The Tab S4 is also a great figure when it comes to gaming. I tried playing PUBG Mobile and Fortnite on Tab S4 and my experience in terms of performance was excellent. PUBG Mobile runs at Ultra frame rate on the Tab S4’s highest settings and there are no performance issues anywhere. The game is absolutely stable, and even with fierce firefights, the guide can admire things. There are screen scaling issues with PUBG, but that’s a fix in Tencent games, and not something I can blame the Tab S4 for.

The Tab S4 is also great at Fortnite. The graphics are some of the best I’ve seen on Android devices, and the game looks better on a bigger screen than it does on smaller Android flagships. Of course, the experience still isn’t as good as it is on iOS devices, but it’s definitely better than most Android phones.

Overall, there’s nothing to complain about when it comes to the Tab S4’s performance.

Galaxy Tab S4 performance review: very good

The Galaxy Tab S4 is a flagship Android tablet and it works like one. Samsung is clearly following the iPad Pro with this tablet, and it’s definitely a tablet worth your attention. As far as performance is concerned, the tablet does an excellent job of handling everything and doesn’t really feel powered by a Snapdragon 835 mobile platform. Verdict: If you’re interested in an Android tablet that won’t let you down (because most of them tends to be), the Tab S4 is a great option.

Buy the Tab S4 on Amazon (Rs 55,900)
