Samsung has recently launched its Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra tablet, and with its unique design and features, this tablet has already caught everyone’s attention. Samsung’s new flagship tablet offers advanced features and productivity tools that make life much easier for professionals on the go. With a larger screen size and more responsive S pen than ever before, it serves as the perfect canvas for all new Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra artists. Although Samsung’s new premium tablet is packed with features, you may be wondering how it handles Apple’s latest iPad Pro (12.9-inch) model. Here are five reasons why you should choose the Samsung Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra over the latest iPad Pro.
1. Design – There is only one clear choice!
With the Tab S8 Ultra, Samsung has made a number of sophisticated design choices that enhance the overall experience of the device. First, the tablet comes with an Armor aluminum casing. Significantly, it is the thinnest, largest and hardest Samsung Galaxy tablet to date. Apart from being impressively durable, the tablet also has a very lightweight and slim design. The build quality of this tablet is very impressive and the graphite coating adds a premium feel to the entire package. Compared to the 6.5mm thick iPad Pro, the Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra is only 5.5mm thick. This means that the Samsung tablet is easy to carry, which is a key feature of the app.
One of the best design-focused things about the Tab S8 Ultra is the location of the front camera. The Samsung tablet holds the camera in a small hole located at the top while in landscape mode. This is the perfect and optimal position for the camera as most of us use large tablets in landscape mode when making video calls. The cameras are very impressive and have excellent viewing and 4K video recording.
Aesthetically, the design of the Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra looks more attractive overall than the generic and outdated design offered by the iPad Pro. The magnetic stripe on the back, the very thin profile or the dimensions suitable for use in landscape mode all set the Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra apart.
2. Pro size display – extra room for production and creativity
Tablets are becoming a preferred choice for creators and professionals alike. Because small screens cannot meet the needs of experts, the screen plays a major role in the decision-making process when choosing the right device. The Samsung Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra comes with a 14.6-inch Super AMOLED display with an update rate of 120Hz, WQXGA + resolution (2960 x 1848 pixels) and a 16:10 aspect ratio. Professionals switching from laptops will feel at home using this tablet for productivity tasks. Because the screen size is large, there is no need to double-check the shapes or zoom in and out to make changes to the maps.
Also, the big screen makes multitasking easy without the hassle of running applications side by side. The Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra will be the preferred choice for professionals as the extra space enables greater productivity and makes multitasking easier.
3. S Pen – Makes all the difference
The Samsung Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra comes with the popular S Pen. The S Pen comes with advanced reactivity and is the perfect tool for taking notes, painting, signing contracts and much more. With improved reactivity, you can take notes just like you would with real pen and paper. Stress sensitivity allows the tablet to distinguish between light and solid strokes that accurately reflect the artist’s vision. When the S Pen is magnetically attached to the back and surface of the tablet (when in natural shape), you can be stressed about where to place it and access it whenever you need it.
To get an Apple pencil, you have to pay an extra 10,900 rupees, which is a lot of money. How the S Pen Tablet improves productivity and is offered for free as part of the package, there is no doubt the benefits of the Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra from this section.
4. Galaxy Ecosystem – Smooth Productivity
The Samsung Galaxy Tab S8 makes the best use of the features of the Galaxy Ecosystem offered by the Ultra brand. One feature that stands out in particular is the second screen. This feature allows you to use your Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra as an extension to your laptop screen. If you use a separate monitor with your laptop for your work, you already know how a secondary monitor can help increase productivity. You will also enjoy the AutoSwitch feature which enables seamless switching between audio devices.
You will also get features like Continuum that allow you to switch from your smartphone to your tablet, or vice versa, without having to restart the app from scratch. So, you can open the connection on your Samsung phone, switch to Tab S8 Ultra and continue browsing on the big screen. There is a Smart Switch that lets you switch from old device to new device while keeping your personalized settings, applications and more. With this excellent integration, the Galaxy ecosystem allows you to focus on work and switch seamlessly between devices without breaking the flow.
5. DeX Mode and External Storage – Get the laptop experience you want
One of the features that sets the Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra apart from the competition is the DeX mode. You can use your Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra just like a computer by pressing the DeX button on the Express panel. If you are in DeX mode, you can open multiple application windows at once and rearrange them as you wish. You can drag and drop items from one application to another and right-click for additional options. In DX mode, you can get a PC-like experience with a single click, with a keyboard card with trackpad and intuitive function keys.
The benefits of DeX do not stop here. This feature allows you to display the contents of your tablet on large screens without a wired connection. This means that you can present the presentation by sending the content on your tablet to the smart TV. Additionally, like laptops, you can use external storage using a microSD card port. You can carry multiple cards and switch between them if you need extra storage.
Unfortunately, on the iPod Pro, if you want to use a tablet like a laptop, there is no dedicated mode that makes it easy to use. The iPad Pro also has no expandable storage option, and increasing the built-in storage is quite expensive.
With all the points in mind, it is clear that the Samsung Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra offers a unique package that opens up different application events for professional users. Adding a bigger screen with better camera fit, slim design, S pen and useful software features could not be higher than the productivity offered by Samsung’s new tablet. While the iPad Pro is a capable tablet, the Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra is in its own league. The Samsung Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra is available at a starting price of Rs 1,08,999. As a limited time offer, the brand offers a 50 per cent discount on the keyboard card worth Rs 22,999 upon purchase of this tablet. You can get Rs.10,000 cashback if you buy the tablet using HDFC credit or debit card with EMI option. If you buy the tablet through the Samsung Shop processor, you will get an additional Rs 2,000 discount.
