New Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 Hands-On Review | Samsung's Latest Has A Surprise

Samsung is one of the few manufacturers still making Android tablets, let alone ones that focus on productivity. Android has a lot of potential. If Google’s not going to push the needle, a hardware expert like Samsung is the next best thing. Its latest is the Galaxy Tab S6, a follow-up to last year’s Tab S4, and it shows Samsung is listening.

    I won’t buy it. Why? I have the Galaxy Tab A 2016 with S pen and it still does everything very well. The only problem is the amount of internal storage which seems to be too little with 16gb. Even though I use a micro sd as well.

  2. 조지_.G30rge on April 1, 2020 at 1:59 pm

    Pre-ordered mine today 👌👍

  3. sergio bragança on April 1, 2020 at 2:01 pm

  4. Raiden on April 1, 2020 at 2:01 pm

    Gunna wait for the 5G LTE model.

  5. pumps0333 on April 1, 2020 at 2:02 pm

    Bestbuy is literally selling the galaxy tab s4 64gb 4gb ram for 649.00 and the galaxy tab s6 128gb 6gb ram for 649.00 wtf is up with that???!!!

  6. Hafiz M on April 1, 2020 at 2:02 pm

    Hi.. can tab s6 make call out? How?
    No one have review this part. Im wonder if its can make call, i need to replace my phone

  7. "Rock On" on April 1, 2020 at 2:04 pm

    The best spen tablet ever made was samsung galaxy tab pro 10.1.
    Why can’t they just remake the same thing with great specs

  8. Ian Williams on April 1, 2020 at 2:06 pm

    I like the fact that the Tab S6 comes with the S-Pen, unlike Apple’s Pencil.

  9. izoyt on April 1, 2020 at 2:07 pm

    surface had magnetic pen (and probably something else befoe that) before ipad, so stop this bs apple invents everything. in reality it’s actually vice versa, it is apple who copy others.

  10. hannah island on April 1, 2020 at 2:09 pm

    I got one!!! Yay

  11. Andrew Brault on April 1, 2020 at 2:11 pm

    :40 tab s4 has a plastic back

  12. Dubdub Dubdub on April 1, 2020 at 2:13 pm


    I sent an email to Samsung customer service and reported about the NON functiong "F" key if you are about to RENAME the album at the gallery of Samsung tablet S6. They confirmed that this is unnatural or not proper in their product. They help me to troubleshoot but nothing happened… problem not solved and they advised me to go to the nearest samsung service center at SM CITYBAGUIO since i bought this tablet last Deccember 1, 2019, so their center can check it personally. At the service center, they advised me to leave the tablet for a while so they can chekc it and probably reset it. UNFORTUNATELY they did not solved the problem. THEY CANNOT do anything about it, instead they instructed me togo to the file folder whenever I rename an album in the gallery. ( THE EASIEST WAY IS TO USE THE SCREEN TO INSERT THE LETTER "f" if you will be need to rename the album with a word with letter "F".

    ALSO, i checked their samsung galaxy tablet S6 if it has the same problem….. and i discovered that it is the same. ARE ALL SAMSUNG GALAXY TAB S6 IN THE PHILIPPINES HAS THE SAME PROBLEM, not functioning "f" key if you are about to RENAME an ALBUM using they KEYBOARD of TABS6?

    What is your opinion about this thing?Do u encounter the same problem? I have a video on the youtube

    just TYPE in the YouTube search engine


  13. Eric J on April 1, 2020 at 2:13 pm

    Is this a review or a overview, because you didn’t even show where the fingerprint sensor is and how well it performs and on top of this there are no benchmarks of any and nothing to show camera quality. "Review" feels rather rushed.

  14. Peste on April 1, 2020 at 2:13 pm

    Ok, but what about Spen lag? Paralax problems? Did they improve it?

  15. C Russell on April 1, 2020 at 2:15 pm

    How can I hook up the tablet to an external monitor?

  16. Funny guru tofayal chalbala on April 1, 2020 at 2:16 pm

    Vary gd bt price koto kore

  17. Rakesh S on April 1, 2020 at 2:16 pm

    When this Tab will be available in India

  18. Joel Montes de Oca on April 1, 2020 at 2:18 pm

    Why did you make a review if you haven’t tested everything first??

  19. Zainuddin evo on April 1, 2020 at 2:19 pm

    Which better
    Snapdragon or exynos..

    I am looking for my first tablet
    Ipad or tablet

  20. austin bader on April 1, 2020 at 2:19 pm

    Lol says it’s the predecessor of the tab s4 it looks like the s4 but better and slimmer….. yet says they copied apple lol . When in fact it’s the other way around. Same situation with the earbuds

  21. Erenalp UYMAZ on April 1, 2020 at 2:20 pm

    the tablet is so good but the price is so good too ;D

  22. WHAT QUEEN on April 1, 2020 at 2:22 pm

    tab S2 keyboard case had a touchpad on it years ago, so this is not the first they just removed it…

  23. Kong Yun Wong on April 1, 2020 at 2:23 pm

    Hi Julian, I have watched many of the hands-on / unboxing / review videos… how about doing a 50 tips, tricks & hidden features of the Tab S6… that will be real cool.. & useful for users…

  24. Blahblahblahblahblah on April 1, 2020 at 2:24 pm

    No headphone jack is a dealbreaker.

  25. Erick F on April 1, 2020 at 2:27 pm

    So Bluetooth co ection with the pen and your Bluetooth headphones at the same time??? 🤔

  26. SIGIT Roh on April 1, 2020 at 2:28 pm

    how much ?

  27. MrVegaslive on April 1, 2020 at 2:28 pm

    Maybe buy it if can get a black friday type deal. In no rush. So, just wait and see.

  28. GerardoPerez85 on April 1, 2020 at 2:32 pm

    Preorder it on the 23rd. Cant wait! Got the 8GB ram model. This will be my first table ever. Have never owned a tablet so I hope its worth it.

  29. Joey O on April 1, 2020 at 2:33 pm

    Now why don’t these reviews ever tell you if this specific Tab has a removal battery ? No one seems to mention that.

  30. Eka Budhiman on April 1, 2020 at 2:33 pm

    Hi, I use a lot of Powerpoint with video playing for conducting training. Is this possible with Tab S6? Any connector to HDMI or VGA projector? Bluetooth speaker connectivity? Thanks

  31. Khalid Mazrooi on April 1, 2020 at 2:33 pm

    Great video,, im planning to get 256 GB LTE from amazon,, any idea what’s the difference of the tab s6 UK version and the international version?

  32. Will S on April 1, 2020 at 2:35 pm

    I would totally get this…..if LumaFusion worked on Android. Sigh.

  33. opollo on April 1, 2020 at 2:36 pm

    There isn’t any games that require such a powerful tablet, so it’s just another media work machine

  34. Derek Roberts on April 1, 2020 at 2:39 pm

    Can’t wait to get mine! The 8gb RAM, 256gb Storage variant.

  35. Kieffer Gabrielle Ebora on April 1, 2020 at 2:39 pm

    Perhaps Dex will be the default screen for future Samsung tablet devices. And with the S pen sticking around lately with the tab S, should Samsung revive the Note tablet line up following the Galaxy Note 10.1 2014? Will they integrate a palm rejection technology in their displays and revive the Note tablet line up?

  36. AJFLICKS on April 1, 2020 at 2:40 pm

    Hi I have been using Tab S5e for two months now, I faced a wired issue with the display when held vertically Page refresh is not in sync, this observed while scrolling down or up in any web page or any e-commerce app The reason i could see is this TAB was designed for horizontal/landscape view of which refresh would always happen from bottom to TAB and no scroll effect seen while held horizontally, Is this the same with TAB s6?

  37. npalmi88 on April 1, 2020 at 2:43 pm

    This thing is pretty nice!

  38. saturnfire74 on April 1, 2020 at 2:43 pm

    Already Pre-Ordered the S6 w/8GB ram and 256 GB. Plus the Keyboard case. I have been waiting for this one. Next on the List the next Surface Tab 🙂

  39. abhinav bodas on April 1, 2020 at 2:43 pm

    So you missed the big thing: How does the S-Pen feel? Is it as good as the Apple Pencil to actually write/ draw?

  40. Rob Steer on April 1, 2020 at 2:48 pm

    Samsung tab s6 ,no phone jack,crazy.big big mistake, how can a fm like samsung miss a trick like that, will they rectify, I doubt it, shame, I won’t he buying. Rs

  43. dip basu on April 1, 2020 at 2:50 pm

    You hv a vry impressive voice

  44. Charles Alden on April 1, 2020 at 2:50 pm

    The S5 or S5e is also a product and was released a while back, man I can’t stand it when a reviewer fails to tell the entire story in order to tell a flat joke,

  45. Daniel Olayinka on April 1, 2020 at 2:51 pm

    I think I prefer the Galaxy s6 than the previous one… But I got no money….

  46. Haohmaru HL on April 1, 2020 at 2:51 pm

    Wait, so if the specs are same or better than s10 why the hell s10 is much more expensive?

  47. Alejandro Gonzalez on April 1, 2020 at 2:52 pm

    There was a trackpad since Asus EeePad Transformer TF101 (with Android 3.0) and Galaxy Tab S2 with the official Book Cover Keyboard

  48. RyoGrattius on April 1, 2020 at 2:53 pm

    Damn, this is about everything I’ve ever wanted out of a Tablet.

  49. Trinh Minh Thanh on April 1, 2020 at 2:54 pm

    Great tablet for business and entertainment

  50. Rex II ForSure on April 1, 2020 at 2:55 pm
