Speaking about the device, Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 is definitely a top-notch quality tablet. In fact, we consider it as an iPad Pro killer mostly because it comes with the S-Pen stylus, Keyboard Cover and it also packs the same 9.7-inch display, while Apple iPad Pro also has Apple Pencil, Smart Cover and the same 9.7-inch display.

Hardware specs

As far as the performance is concerned, this tablet is definitely one of the best around the market today. It comes with a Snapdragon 820 processor from Qualcomm, paired with a huge 4GB of RAM and a high-end Adreno 530 GPU. So basically, you can throw anything on this machine.

The one that deserves to get the spotlight here is definitely its screen. It features a 9.7-inch display with 2048x1536 pixel resolution. And it is Super AMOLED screen. So it will look super sharp, super crisp and vibrant with well-saturated colors.

There's 13MP camera on the back if you love photography. And it's capable to do 4K video recording. Meanwhile, the 5MP provided on the front is also reliable for taking selfies or doing video calls.

The internal storage provided here is 32GB, but it's expandable through microSD card slot for up to 256GB. So you can have a huge space to keep as many photos and videos as you want.

Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 comes with Android Nougat 7.0 out of the box. But hopefully, the next Android O updates will arrive soon on this device.

The S-Pen

Probably one of the coolest thing you can find on this tablet is the S-Pen. So Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 also comes with this stylus. And this one now has been improved a lot compared to the predecessors.

This S-Pen also delivers a more natural writing experience to users, thanks to its 4096 levels of pressure sensitivity. So it literally feels like writing with a real pen or pencil!

Unlike the Apple Pencil of iPad Pro that needs to be recharged regularly in annoying position through the lightning port, the S-Pen of Samsung Galaxy Tab S3, on the other hand, doesn't require this. So you can use it whenever you want without needing to recharge it, which is why think that this tablet is better than iPad Pro.

However, there's no slot on this tablet to keep the S-Pen, just like you can find on Samsung Galaxy Note device. So you're gonna need to carry this stylus in other place (like in pocket, maybe?).

Keyboard Cover

This tablet is also equipped with its own keyboard cover. But this one is sold separately and gonna cost you Rs 8,990 if you want to get a fully-working laptop experience out of this tablet. Meanwhile, there's also the book cover available for this device. And you can have it for Rs 2,999.

It's made for gaming

For playing games, this tablet is totally a reliable gaming tablet. It will be more than capable to handle literally any Android games on the market right now.

Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 is ideal as well for doing productive tasks, which is why it comes with Keyboard Cover and S-Pen. And with its gorgeous Super AMOLED screen, you can totally count on it for watching movies.

This tablet is powered by 6000mAh battery. And with the improvements found on Android Nougat, we are more than sure this device will be able to deliver a pretty solid battery life all day long.


Well, if you're currently looking for a great alternative for iPad Pro, we totally recommend you to get this Samsung Galaxy Tab S3. It's really powerful, it has premium all-metal design and it's really great for watching movies, doing productive tasks, sketching or even playing games. You can basically do almost anything on this machine.

Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 is now available to buy in India. It's gonna cost you Rs 47,999 or around US $742. However, the keyboard cover is sold separately for Rs 8,990 or around US $139, while the book cover is priced at Rs 2,999.

To sweeten the deal, so under a special launch offer, this tablet also comes with 1-time screen replacement at INR 990 within a warranty period of your purchase (12 months). However, this offer will be over until July 31 next month.
