Most of the things I like about the Tab S4 are things that I liked in the Tab S3.

The one true iPad alternative

Most of the things I like about the Tab S4 are things that I liked in the Tab S3. The Tab S4 is an attractive, lightweight Android tablet made better by expandable storage, face-and-eye login options, and a redesigned S Pen. I used the new S Pen more than any other stylus on any other tablet or two-in-one thanks to its newfound comfort in my hand and my general love for Air Command's convenience.

The Samsung Galaxy Tab S4 is a prime example of this new breed of "productive tablets" — instead of trying to fit in an awkward tablet-PC hybrid sector, they proudly flaunt their touch-first interface with all of its pros and cons. Its included S Pen is excellent for those who want to draw or people who simply like to take notes by hand and its plethora of features makes it a good device for both work and entertainment.

The 2-in-1 promise without the productivity chops

from TechRadar

The Samsung Galaxy Tab S4 tries to push Android tablets to the next level with 2-in-1 desktop-like software, and while it's what we want to see from even the iPad, the idea doesn't automatically make it the best tablet. It's overpriced, the touchscreen isn't as responsive in Dex mode, and too many apps aren't optimized.

Productivity at its near-best

from Mobile Syrup

The Samsung Galaxy Tab S4 pleasantly surprised me. It functioned well and allowed me to get through a day of work. I can say I was definitely productive on the Tab S4, especially in comparison to other Android tablets I've used in the past. However, I wasn't more productive than I would've been on a Windows laptop or even a Chromebook.

The Samsung Galaxy Tab S4 is a great effort to make the ideal Android tablet. Samsung DeX makes the Tab S4 truly special, but the lack of optimized apps for Android and DeX modes means your software choices are quite limited. Samsung did a remarkable job of making the Tab S4 seem like it’s more than the sum of its parts. I just wish the parts were better.

A premium tablet great for entertainment, but no PC replacement

from Cnet

The Samsung Galaxy Tab S4 raises the bar on its predecessor with a bigger display, better performance and the addition of Samsung DeX, which gives it a PC-like interface. Samsung includes an excellent S Pen for drawing and writing on the 10.5-inch display.

The Samsung Galaxy Tab S4 won’t replace your laptop. While the new Dex mode offers a great experience, in theory, it feels extremely half-baked — you’ll be consistently frustrated while using it. Unless you really, really want an Android tablet, you should not buy the Galaxy Tab S4. Go buy a laptop instead. Or an iPad. Just don’t buy this.

Canadian Reviewer

An exciting and desirable tablet

from Canadian Reviewer

I'm hard put to consider this a serious daily driver unless all I’m working on are Mobile Office 365 documents, email and light browser-based applications. For many users, this is perfectly fine, but you can access all of this for a lot less on a Chromebook or a cheaper, less luxurious tablet.
