Two-minute review

With the Galaxy Tab S7 range, Samsung is looking to challenge the current king of tablets – the iPad Pro. We're reviewing both here - the larger Tab S7 Plus, as well as the slightly smaller Tab S7.

Both are fantastic tablets in their own right, though the the gorgeous 12.4-inch OLED panel on the Tab S7 Plus will certainly win over the LED panel of the Tab S7. With a resolution of 2800 x 1752 on the Tab S7 Plus and a refresh rate of 120Hz, it looks absolutely stunning, and it's the best screen we've ever seen on an Android tablet.

The display has a 16:10 aspect ratio, which makes the overall shape of the tablet taller and narrower than an iPad, and it’s also thinner and lighter than the iPad Pro 12.9. The build quality is first-rate, and both tablets look and feel sleek and premium, without any hint of flex.

Samsung hasn’t skimped on the rest of the specifications either. The Galaxy Tab S7 Plus and Tab S7 are powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 Plus, which is the fastest processor currently available for the Android platform.

Samsung bundles the S Pen stylus with the slate, so you won't need to shell out extra for it. The S Pen is more responsive than the stylus that came with the Galaxy Tab S6 and it snaps magnetically onto the back of the tablet where it charges wirelessly.

Where most Android tablets struggle is with apps: Android developers just aren’t as interested in optimizing apps for a tablet interface as those developing for iOS seem to be. Most Android tablet apps simply look like a stretched-out version of the phone app, rather than being rebuilt for the bigger screen.

While the software offering isn't as strong as what you get on an iPad, there's a lot to love about the Galaxy Tab S7 range, with the highlight being the screen on the Tab S7 Plus. Samsung isn't just gunning to claim the title of best Android tablet here - it's setting its sights on the iPad Pro 2020 and the best tablet crown too.

Samsung Galaxy Tab S7 / Tab S7 Plus price and release date

The Samsung Galaxy Tab S7 and Galaxy Tab S7 Plus are both available now in the US, UK and Australia.

The Samsung Galaxy Tab S7 Plus price starts at $849.99 / £799 / AU$1,549 for the 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage variant, which is no surprise considering the flagship tablets it's competing with.

That's a Wi-Fi only variant, and you're able to buy a 5G-ready version of the tablet as well. Some markets also have access to a 4G variant, but that's not on sale in the US.
There's also an 8GB of RAM with 256GB of storage version in some markets.

The Samsung Galaxy Tab S7 base model comes with with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage, and starts at $649.99 / £619 / AU$1,149.

In the UK, you’re be able to buy a Wi-Fi only variant of the tablet but in the US you’ll only have the choice of a 5G-ready.

In the UAE, Samsung has priced the Galaxy Tab S7 Plus at AED 3,599. That gets you a 256GB unit with 8GB RAM but no LTE. To sweeten the deal, Samsung is bundling a complimentary Book Cover for anyone pre-ordering it. For the Galaxy Tab S7, pricing sits at AED 2,699 for the Wi-Fi only model, and AED 2,999 for the LTE version, both with 128GB of storage.


When you think of a premium tablet, the design that instantly comes to mind is the iPad Pro with its large screen, thin bezels and flat sides. The Samsung Galaxy Tab S7 series has all of that, and it manages to up the game by being both thinner and lighter than the 12.9-inch iPad.

At 575g for the Tab S7 Plus and 498g for the Tab S7, it is reasonably light, but you'd still want to hold it with two hands. It's also impressively thin at just 5.7mm, which makes it the thinnest tablet we've used. 

Being thin and light does not mean the tablet feels cheap – it's quite the opposite. There's no flex on the tablet and It feels extremely premium, especially with the brushed metal sides that remind us a bit of the Galaxy Note 4.

The rear side of the tablet is a bit of a fingerprint magnet and we started seeing smudges very easily on the Mystic Black color that we used. You'll also get two additional colors; Mystic Silver and Mystic Bronze.

Galaxy Tab S7 / S7 Plus specs

Weight: 498g / 575g
Dimensions: 253.8 x 165.3 x 6.3 / 285 x 185 x 5.7mm
Display size: 11 inch / 12.4-inch
Display type: LTPS IPS LCD / Super AMOLED
Resolution: 2560 x 1600 / 2800 x 1752
Refresh rate: 120Hz
Chipset: Snapdragon 865 Plus
RAM: 6GB / 8GB
Storage: 128GB / 256GB
OS: Android 10
Rear camera: 13MP + 5MP
Front camera: 8MP
Battery: 8000mAh / 10,090mAh 

There's a glass strip towards the top of the rear of the tablet, which acts as a magnet to attach the S-Pen. Weirdly, the S Pen only charges when the tip of the pen is pointing in the camera's direction. The magnet is not the strongest and the fact it's behind the slate made us wary of losing the stylus without realizing as it's out of sight. 

However, Samsung has a clever design solution with the cover and we'll touch on shortly.

The camera modules are also placed within this glass strip with a tiny bump around it. That does mean the tablet doesn't sit exactly flush when you lay it down on a table.

The Samsung Galaxy Tab S7 series has just one USB 3.2 Type-C port, located on the right that can either charge or provide a data connection. This also means there's no headphone jack available on the slate. You'll have to double-check if your USB-C headphones are compatible, as when we tried one particular headset, the tablet showed it as an unrecognized USB device.

There are plenty of docks and dongles available that can extend the functionality of this port, but two ports are always better than one - and it's something we'd have liked to of seen here if Samsung is serious about this being a productivity machine.

There is a smart connector at the bottom, with the Samsung Keyboard cover magnetically attaches to. As far as buttons are concerned, you get a power button and volume keys, plus there's a SIM slot on top.


If a tablet was judged by its screen alone, the Samsung Galaxy Tab S7 Plus would be one of the best out there. The gorgeous 12.4-inch Super AMOLED screen has a resolution of 2800 x 1752 and supports a fast 120Hz refresh rate making it smooth to operate.

The Tab S7 sports a LTPS IPS LCD screen, with a resolution of 2560 x 1600 pixels, but retains the same refresh rate of 120Hz.

The difference between the OLED screen on Samsung Galaxy Tab S7 Plus and other IPS-based tablets such as the iPad Pro or the Huawei MatePad, is IPS screens just seem dull after you've used OLED.

The 16:10 aspect ratio of the screen is a decent compromise between entertainment and productivity. Most streaming content is made with a 16:9 aspect ratio, so you lose very little screen estate when watching Netflix or YouTube compared to an iPad which has a 4:3 ratio. 

On the flip side, you don't get as much vertical space for apps, web browsing or emailing, but it isn't a huge issue.

There are very narrow bezels around the tablet, and Samsung improved its prevention against accidental taps - but it's not perfect. You need to make sure the S Pen touches the screen before your palm does otherwise you start seeing app windows resizing or flying off the screen.

The Galaxy Tab S7 Plus features an in-screen fingerprint sensor. It's not as fast as the ones we've seen on some smartphones, but it works well enough. On the Tab S7 the fingerprint reader resides in the power button, which is equally fast at unlocking the device when you need to.

The accessories

Although the Samsung Galaxy Tab S7 series can be purchased as a standalone tablet, its productivity levels improve tenfold when used with accessories. The S Pen is already included in the box which is much nicer than the extra you'll need to spend if you were to purchase an Apple Pencil for the iPad.

Like the Apple Pencil on the iPad Pro, you can snap the S Pen magnetically onto the back of the the Galaxy Tab S7 to store it, and to charge it wirelessly. Samsung has improved the latency on the S Pen and added air gestures to the Tab S7 Plus, similar to those you'll see on the new Galaxy Note 20.

Besides the S Pen you can optionally buy the Book Cover and the Book Cover Keyboard for the Galaxy Tab S7 Plus. The Book cover magnetically attaches to the back of the Tab and adds a kickstand that lets you stand the tablet up - useful if you're about to watch a movie. Do keep in mind that with both these accessories, the weight of the tablet goes up noticeably.

The top of the Book cover has a small bump where the S Pen resides, and you can flip the top part of the cover to access the stylus. We highly recommend using the Book Cover as it provides excellent protection against losing your S Pen.

The Book Cover Keyboard snaps on using the Smart Connector to provide you with a keyboard and trackpad, allowing you to use the slate in a similar fashion to the Microsoft Surface Pro 7. There is a bit of jiggle when using the tablet with the keyboard in your lap - it's workable, but not as sturdy as the Surface.

The keys are large and nicely spaced with decent throw, though they're not backlit which makes it difficult to type in the dark. You do get the full set of keys along with with numeric and function keys for shortcuts to change volume and brightness levels as well as for navigating Android.

The trackpad is also decently sized and slightly bigger than the one found on the iPad Pro Keyboard case. However, it felt a bit jumpy like some of the Windows laptops. It supports three fingers gestures that allow for the same functionality as Android's navigation gestures. For anyone that prefer to press instead of tapping, the right side of the trackpad acts as a right click when pressed.

Specs, performance and camera

The Samsung Galaxy Tab S7 series is equipped with the fastest processor currently available for the Android platform - the Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 Plus. This is backed up with either 6GB or 8GB of RAM, depending on what variant you choose. 

Along with that 120Hz display, this makes for the smoothest Android tablet experience we've come across. In terms of storage you have the choice between 128GB and 256GB, and if that's not enough you can extend this using a microSD card up to 1TB in size.

Apps launch quickly and you can easily switch between them without any delays. We had multiple apps working on both tablets and it continued to operate as fluidly as having a similar set of apps open on an iPad.

We ran Geekbench 5 on the Tab S7 Plus which registered a single core score of 936 and a multi-core score of 2,846. That's not as fast as the iPad but you'd be hard pressed to notice the difference with general usage. On the Tab S7, the scores were 973 and 3,227 respectively.

There are four speakers on the tablet that sound pretty good and make it a device suited for watching films or playing games. However, the iPad has the Tab S7 beat again as we found the speakers on multiple iPad products to be louder and richer.

Some versions of the Galaxy Tab S7 come with a SIM card slot, and some version of the Tab S7 Plus are even 5G compatible. If you're fortunate enough to live or work in a 5G coverage area, this version of the Tab S7 Plus will be able to take advantage of increased download and upload speeds. 

Even if you're not currently in a 5G coverage area, carriers around the world are continuing to roll out the next generation network to more and more areas, which means when it does arrive in your location you'll be able to take advantage of them.

There's also an 8MP front-facing camera that thankfully sits on the top of your screen when the tablet is in a landscape mode. We found this more suited for conducting video calls as your eye line is more suited to where the camera sits rather than it being off to the side like it can be with other tablets.

Round the back, both tablets have a dual-camera setup, with a main 13MP camera joined by a 5MP ultra-wide offering. There are people out there that take photos with their tablets and the cameras here will serve them well. 

You get all sorts of camera modes such as Live Focus (for portraits), Pro Video, Night and Single Take that Samsung released with the S20 series. This last mode records a short video and then creates multiple clips and images out of it with different aspect ratios suited for social networks.

Samsung Galaxy Tab S7 and S7 Plus review: hardware can’t carry it all

If you want to buy a tablet that can possibly replace your laptop, there are two options most people go for: Apple’s iPad Pro or Microsoft’s Surface Pro.

Samsung has been trying to elbow its way into the productivity tablet conversation for years, but it’s never quite reached the level of Apple or Microsoft in terms of functionality, quality, or popularity. A lot of that comes down to the software: last year’s Galaxy Tab S6 was beset with bugs, confusing software, and unfinished features that just ruined the experience, despite the S6’s impressive hardware.

This year, Samsung is giving it another go. It’s sticking with its Android-based approach, but it’s now offering two different sizes — the 11-inch Tab S7 and the 12.4-inch Tab S7 Plus — to more squarely compete with Apple’s two iPad Pro models. The Tab S7 starts at $649.99, while the Tab S7 Plus commands $849.99. Both come with Samsung’s S Pen stylus in the box, and either size can be paired with an optional keyboard case for $199.99 or $229.99, respectively, which brings the total up to $1,079.98 for a Tab S7 Plus and a keyboard.

For those prices, the Tab S7 stacks the specs, including high-end processors, high refresh rate displays, quad-speaker systems, and even optional 5G connectivity. I’ve spent the last week using both sizes for everything from casual reading and video watching to getting my daily work done as an editor of a high-output online publication.

To get right to the point, I will tell you that the Tab S7 pair represent a marked improvement over the Tab S6, including in both hardware and software. They have incredible displays, fast performance, and far fewer bugs and issues than last year’s model. The Tab S7 Plus, in particular, provides the best movie watching experience you can hold in your hands.

But great hardware isn’t enough, and there are just too many places where the software is more frustrating to use than Apple or Microsoft’s tablets to justify the Tab S7’s asking price.

Hardware and Design

In terms of hardware, there’s very little to complain about with either model. The absolute best thing by far about either Tab S7 the display. The S7 Plus has a 12.4-inch OLED panel that is bright, vibrant, and pixel-dense. Colors practically jump off the screen, and the blacks are as inky and deep as they are on the LG OLED TV hanging in my living room. Topping it off is the 120Hz refresh rate, which makes every interaction buttery smooth. The 11-inch Tab S7 swaps out the OLED for LCD but maintains the 120Hz refresh rate. It’s also an excellent screen that is bright enough to use outdoors and has almost as punchy colors and contrast as the S7 Plus. It really only looks worse when you do a side-by-side comparison, so just don’t do that if you’re leaning toward the 11-inch model.

My only gripe with either display is that they have 16:10 aspect ratios and therefore a much smaller surface area than their iPad Pro counterparts. This isn’t a problem when you’re watching movies or YouTube, but when it comes time to get work done, the Tab S7 models feel cramped. That more rectangular aspect ratio makes them awkward to use in portrait mode, as well — I can manage to hold the Tab S7 in portrait mode for a short while to read a book, but the Tab S7 Plus is really cumbersome in this orientation.

The rest of the Tab S7 design is taken right from the iPad Pro’s playbook: an even border around the screen with rounded corners, matte finish aluminum on the back, and sharp-edged, squared-off sides. Unoriginal as it is, the fit and finish are appropriate for this price level, and nobody can deny the Tab S7 is a nice-looking device.

Aside from the obvious size difference and the type of displays used, the Tab S7 and S7 Plus differ in their biometric unlocking systems. The Tab S7 integrates a fingerprint scanner into the power button, which works quickly and reliably. The S7 Plus has an in-screen fingerprint scanner, like Samsung’s high-end smartphones. Sometimes in-screen scanners can be finicky, but I had no issues using it in my tests.

Samsung put four speakers into both Tab S7 models and dolloped a bit of Dolby Atmos and AKG tuning on top. The result is a loud, full experience that sounds great whether I’m watching a YouTube video, listening to some Spotify, or dialing into a Zoom call. They are almost good enough for me to forgive Samsung for not including a headphone jack.

Sadly, the microphones aren’t quite up to the same level. Those on the other end of Zoom calls said I sounded muffled and distant, despite my ability to hear them perfectly fine. Samsung was smart enough to put the front-facing camera on the long edge of the screen, so when you’re using it in the keyboard case the camera is on the top, not the side, just like a laptop. It’s not the best camera I’ve ever seen, but it does run laps around most laptop webcams at this point and is much less awkward to use than the iPad Pro’s front-facing camera.

On the back is a dual-camera system with a standard and ultrawide lens. They are fine, but what I’m glad to see is an LED flash, which is useful when scanning documents and was missing from the Tab S6.

The other half of the Tab S7 hardware discussion is Samsung’s optional (and expensive) keyboard cases, which allow you to use the S7 or S7 Plus in lieu of a laptop.

There are some good ideas here. For example, I like how the keyboard can be separated from the tablet and there’s still a part of the case protecting the back and providing a kickstand for watching video or drawing. It’s way more flexible than Apple’s Magic Keyboard, which basically forces you into having all or nothing. The back cover also keeps the S Pen in place when I toss the tablet in a bag and instead of the weird adhesive that was part of the Tab S6’s case, Samsung is using magnets to attach it to the tablet, so it’s much easier to take on and off.

But that flexibility comes at a price when I try to use the Tab S7 on my lap, where it’s all kinds of wobbly and unstable. I can make it work, but it’s way less comfortable than an iPad Pro, Surface Pro, or traditional clamshell laptop on my actual lap.

The keyboard and trackpad have good feel and action. I particularly like the new multifinger gestures that let me navigate the software with swipes on the trackpad. But there are annoyances here, too, such as the function row that can’t be set to media controls by default. I have to press the Fn key every time I want to pause music or adjust the volume. The 11-inch version of the keyboard omits the function row entirely, making it even more difficult to work on.

The trackpad also has terrible palm rejection, which sends my cursor flying across the screen erratically all day long, and you can’t disable the inverted (or “natural”) scrolling on it, which frustrates me.

I do not pretend to be an artist, but Samsung’s included S Pen stylus is easier to write with than the Apple Pencil, thanks to its softer tip, and I don’t need a matte screen protector to stop the stylus from skidding across the screen like I do with the iPad. It’s also nice to hold and doesn’t cost an additional $129 like Apple’s.


It’s not a controversial statement to say that the weakest part of Samsung’s tablet offerings is that they run Android, which hasn’t worked well on tablets in, well, ever. That’s still the case with the S7, though if all you’re doing is browsing the web, checking Facebook, and streaming Netflix, the software is fine. It’s when you try to do some more demanding things or branch outside the most popular apps where you run into some problems.

To try to overcome some of Android’s large-screen shortcomings in a productivity context, Samsung developed DeX a few years ago. It attempts to provide a more traditional desktop-like experience, complete with overlapping windows and a taskbar at the bottom.

To get to the DeX mode, you use a keyboard shortcut or have the system switch automatically when the keyboard is attached. The system will do a soft reboot and bring you out of the traditional Android home screen and launch something that doesn’t look hugely different from current versions of macOS. Apps are available through a launcher, you can see all of your notifications and settings in the lower-right corner, and when new apps open in a windowed box, they don’t take up the whole screen.

This is all a good idea, in theory. The thing that enables productivity on a desktop or laptop computer is the ability to have more than one window open at a time, whether that’s a second browser or document to reference while writing or a chatbox while you compose an email. It’s also a familiar interface that the vast majority of people are comfortable with, unlike the iPad’s unique approach to multitasking.

The problem is that even though Samsung has been working on it for years, DeX still feels like an unfinished project and it’s not something the base Android system supports well. DeX’s rudimentary window management has no window snapping or virtual desktops and is jarring to use when coming from a modern desktop OS. I can’t use the trackpad to select text in a webpage or app for some reason.

Then there are the bigger issues, like when crucial apps refuse to open in DeX mode (hello, LastPass) or don’t want to cooperate with Samsung’s hacky window resizing controls (looking at you, Pocket). Apps frequently just crash when I’m in the DeX environment, and if I close up the tablet and open it up later, I can expect that all of the apps I was working in will be gone. It’s just not something I’d want to rely on for work every day.

(Also, this is exceedingly pedantic, but the mouse pointer is rotated counter-clockwise a few degrees more than the once in Windows or macOS, and it looks odd and off-putting to me.)

Samsung has done a good job of making sure its own apps, such as the browser and calendar, work well, and Microsoft’s Office suite and Google’s apps stretch across the screen more elegantly. If you bail on DeX and use it in the standard Android mode, you can use Samsung’s multiwindow feature that lets you run three apps at the same time (much like you can on the Galaxy Fold).

But the reality is that the vast majority of Android apps just kind of look stupid on such a big screen. Apps I use every day, such as Feedly, don’t offer multiple columns, and Twitter is just a stretched-out version of the phone app. Even if they do format themselves well for the bigger display, few Android apps offer any kind of support for keyboard shortcuts, a particular pain point when I’m managing my inbox in Outlook.

All of that adds up to a frustrating experience when you’re trying to do anything more productive than send off a few emails or research a new vacuum to buy.


Both Tab S7 models have Qualcomm’s latest and greatest Snapdragon 865 Plus processor inside, plus 6GB of RAM in the S7 and 8GB of RAM in the S7 Plus. In my testing, neither showed any slowdown or chug, even when bouncing between multiple apps and running a handful of tabs in the browser. I was able to chat with my colleagues in Slack, compose articles in our CMS, browse Twitter, watch Doug DeMuro videos on YouTube, and keep up with my RSS feed just like I do on a laptop every day of the week. Technically, Apple’s processor is faster than the Qualcomm in a benchmark test, but in the real world, the Tab S7 Plus feels no slower than the iPad Pro, at least for the tasks I ask of it.

Battery life, though, is a mixed bag. For typical “tablet stuff” — reading books or articles, browsing the web, watching video, playing games, etc. — the Tab S7 and S7 Plus have no trouble lasting 10 hours or more between charges. But when I use them as workstations in place of a laptop, that stamina plummets to less than four or five hours. That’s not out of line with my experience on the iPad Pro under the same use cases, but it does mean that I’m charging the tablet at least once or twice a day when I’m working. Fortunately, there’s support for 45-watt fast charging, though the included charger is a measly 15 watts.

At the end of my testing period, I mostly became frustrated because Samsung made some forward progress compared to last year’s Tab S6, and there are things I like or even love about the Tab S7. The hardware is top-notch, the display is perhaps the best you can get on any mobile device, and the audio experience is excellent. These really are the best media consumption tablets I’ve ever used, and I’d rather pick up the S7 Plus to watch the latest episode of Lovecraft Country than an iPad Pro.

But when you’re spending over a thousand dollars on a tablet and keyboard, it’s reasonable to expect more than just an excellent movie watching experience, and that’s once again where Samsung’s tablets fall short.

Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 vs Tab S7: Best Android Tablet 2020 FOR YOU?

Compare: Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 vs Samsung Galaxy Tab S7 Plus

Devices with a display are an integral part of our everyday lives, whether a smartphone, TV, laptop, or tablet. Even our refrigerator can be equipped with a screen or touchscreen. So it makes sense if you introduce your child to digital media at an early stage. Children’s tablets are best suited for this, even if every tablet has a children’s mode.

The difference to standard tablet PCs is that children’s tablets are child-friendly to use and only offer age-appropriate access to learning apps, games, and media such as audiobooks, videos, and books.

On the one hand, apps are available with age-dependent filtered content, and on the other hand, you can customize the children’s tablet to your child in a password-protected parent account. You can use pre-settings to specify which content your child can use and when. For example, you can authorize the use of games and videos for screen time in the midday hours and only e-books and audiobooks for the evening hours. Or you only allow your child to play videos after using a learning app for 10 minutes. Otherwise, you can control the entire screen time per day with a timer function. You can adapt everything as you want and see fit for your child.

Light and sound conditions are also often adapted to the sensitive eyes and ears of children. Meanwhile, a colorful silicone cover protects the device from damage caused by falls or the like.

Children’s tablets are available for all age groups between 3 and 10 years. You can familiarize your child with the digital world even as a toddler. You enable them to deal with modern technologies and media in a barrier-free manner. It becomes a so-called digital native – a person who grows up with digital technology and uses it as a matter of course.

Children’s tablets also cost only a fraction of regular tablet PCs.

To keep track of this jungle of offers and decide which device is the right one for your child, you will find below our 3 most popular children’s tablets, which we will present to you in detail.

The range of children’s tablets is large and varied. Even if that is a reason to be happy, it can also seem overwhelming to deal with many different models. To make it easier for you to find something suitable for your child, we will introduce you to our 3 most popular children’s tablets in detail.

Amazon Fire HD 10 Kids 2021

The Amazon Fire HD 10from the 2019 series is available in the Kids Edition from just under 170 USD and is a true all-rounder. The children’s tablet is suitable for children between 3 and 12 years of age. It provides your child with tons of activities: playing, learning, reading, listening to audiobooks, watching videos, or surfing the Internet. There are only the limits that you set for your child.

The selection of available apps is not limited to Amazon products. In addition to Audible, Prime, and Co., you can also provide your child with videos from Disney Plus, YouTube, or learning content from Anton, for example. You can deactivate in-app purchases within the games. The browser is deactivated at the factory and otherwise only displays pages that have been filtered for children.

The content available for the Amazon Fire HD 10 Kids Edition can be obtained from the Amazon Kids + store. With the purchase of the children’s tablet, you automatically receive a 1-year membership. After 12 months, you have the option to continue your membership for a fee. You then pay $5 per month for one child, with an existing Prime membership of $3. If you have several children, you can take out a membership with up to 4 children for 10 USD or a Prime subscription for 7 USD per month.

The device’s impressive battery life of 12 hours ensures that you don’t have to watch the charging bar and have the charger at hand. So your child’s tablet is always available on a weekend trip – provided it is not in constant use.

The children’s tablet has a robust casing that protects the device from falls and hits. The silicone case is available in purple, pink, and blue. So every child can choose their color.

The children’s version is only a little inferior to the parents’ Fire tablet from Amazon in terms of hardware. The Amazon Fire HD 10 Kids Edition has a sufficiently large storage space with a selection of apps, 5-6 short audiobooks, and two films. In the meantime, films can be viewed on the 10-inch LCD screen in a full HD image resolution inappropriately sharp quality without being pixelated. Otherwise, a powerful processor ensures that games can be played smoothly and do not irritate the children. The Amazon children’s tablet meanwhile has the Fire OS operating system. Similar to Android operating systems, it is open source and therefore very easy to use.

Compared to the competition, the children’s tablet is doing quite well. Only the weight of the Amazon Fire HD 10 Kids Version is a bit heavy, which can be a bit tiring on small children’s arms in the long run. Light and sound are also not reduced in a way that is suitable for children.

A newer version of the Amazon children’s tablet has been on the market since April 2021. Compared to its predecessor, this scores a tidy user interface that should be more pleasant to use for older children. Otherwise, the devices only differ slightly in the following: The successor model has a slightly larger RAM for more powerful tablet use, a higher rear camera resolution for sharper images, and a lower weight for better handling.

Pebble Gear Disney Tablet

The children’s tablet Pebble Gear is available for 90 USD and suitable for children between 3 and 8 years. It comes in a unique design and with amazing content that is sure to inspire your offspring.

Pebble has cooperation with Disney. This means that unique games, learning apps, audio books and films with Disney characters are available on the tablet. Your child can play, learn and read with their favorite Disney character. In addition, the protective bumper cover of the children’s tablet bears the inscription from the Disney films Frozen II, Cars, Toy Story 4, or Mickey and Friends. The protective cover is also designed in color typical of the film.

The enormous range of games, videos, e-books, or learning apps is available via a pre-installed GameStore app that you can use free of charge for 12 months. After this time, the content will still be available to you via prepaid. You then have the choice between the following price options: for one month you pay $5, for the quarter 13 USD and one year 40 USD.

The use of the content is free of advertising and in-app purchases. However, Pebble only prevents external apps such as Netflix, Amazon Prime, Anton, and Co.

A stylus is a pen-like accessory that allows you to interact with the touchscreen with greater precision, and is particularly useful for drawing and writing.

We consider a lower weight better because lighter devices are more comfortable to carry. A lower weight is also an advantage for home appliances, as it makes transportation easier, and for many other types of products.

We consider a thinner chassis better because it makes the product more compact and portable. Thinness is a feature highlighted by many manufacturers of mobile devices, but it is essential for a wide range of products.

The device is dustproof and water-resistant. Water-resistant devices can resist the penetration of water, such as powerful water jets, but not being submerged into water.

The device is protected with extra seals to prevent failures caused by dust, raindrops, and water splashes.

The height represents the vertical dimension of the product. We consider a smaller height better because it assures easy maneuverability.

Volume is the quantity of three-dimensional space enclosed by the product's chassis or, in simpler terms, the space the product occupies.

The width represents the horizontal dimension of the product. We consider a smaller width better because it assures easy maneuverability.

With tilt sensitivity you can change the angle of the pen to control things such as opacity.


Resolution is an essential indicator of a screen's image quality, representing the maximum amount of pixels that can be shown on the screen. The resolution is given as a compound value, comprised of horizontal and vertical pixels.

Pixel density is a measurement of a screen's resolution, expressed as the number of pixels per inch (PPI) on the screen. A higher pixel density translates into more clarity and sharpness for the images rendered on the screen, thus improving the quality of the viewing experience.

The bigger the screen size is, the better the user experience.

Damage-resistant glass (such as Corning Gorilla Glass or Asahi Dragontrail Glass) is thin, lightweight, and can withstand high levels of force.

You can operate the device easily, by pressing the screen with your fingers.

IPS (In-Plane Switching) is a technology used for LCDs. It was designed to overcome the main limitations of conventional twisted nematic TFT displays: limited viewing angles and low-quality color reproduction. PLS (Plane-to-Line Switching) is a type of IPS screen developed by Samsung, with increased brightness and lower production costs.

OLED (Organic Light-Emitting Diode) displays are formed of organic materials that emit light. They have higher contrast ratios and wider viewing angles compared to LCDs. AMOLED and POLED are types of OLED displays.

The display supports HDR10, which is an HDR (high dynamic range) video technology. Compared to standard dynamic range (SDR) video, HDR10 video has greater contrast and color depth, resulting in more realistic images.


The CPU speed indicates how many processing cycles per second can be executed by a CPU, considering all of its cores (processing units). It is calculated by adding the clock rates of each core or, in the case of multi-core processors employing different microarchitectures, of each group of cores.

Random-access memory (RAM) is a form of volatile memory used to store working data and machine code currently in use. It is a quick-access, temporary virtual storage that can be read and changed in any order, thus enabling fast data processing.

The device has a standard memory slot (such as an SD or micro SD card slot) that enables you to extend the built-in internal storage with affordable memory modules, or easily retrieve data, such as photographs, from the memory card.

The internal storage refers to the built-in storage space available in a device for system data, apps, and user-generated data. With a large amount of internal storage, you can save more files and apps on your device.

Small semiconductors provide better performance and reduced power consumption. Chipsets with a higher number of transistors, semiconductor components of electronic devices, offer more computational power. A small form factor allows more transistors to fit on a chip, therefore increasing its performance.

Using big.LITTLE technology, a chip can switch between two sets of processor cores to maximize performance and battery life. For example, when playing a game the more powerful cores will be used to increase performance, whereas checking email will use the less powerful cores to maximize battery life.


The number of megapixels determines the resolution of the images captured with the main camera. A higher megapixel count means that the camera is capable of capturing more details. However, the megapixel count is not the only important element determining the quality of an image.

The number of megapixels determines the resolution of the images captured with the front camera. A higher megapixel count means that the front camera is capable of capturing more details, an essential factor for taking high-resolution selfies.

3.has a flash

A flash is good for low-light environments, and can sometimes be used as flashlight.

A front camera, also called secondary camera, can be used for video chats/selfies.

It can automatically shoot pictures with a higher dynamic range (HDR).

The autofocus is immediately set to the subject by just touching it on the touch screen.

CMOS image sensors are slowly replacing CCD sensors, due to reduced power consumption and better image quality. They can be very compact and cost relatively little to produce.

With manual white balance you can choose the most accurate setting and avoid the green, blue or red hue which can occur in auto mode. You can also change the setting for artistic effect.

A BSI (backside illuminated) sensor is a camera image sensor which captures better quality images in poor lighting conditions, and offers better overall sharpness and image quality.


Devices with stereo speakers deliver sound from independent channels on both left and right sides, creating a richer sound and a better experience.

More microphones result in better sound quality and enable the device to filter out background noise.

4.Has a radio

✖Samsung Galaxy Tab S7 Plus

A built-in FM radio tuner allows you to listen to most of the live-broadcasted FM radio stations without using the internet.

Phones with physical keyboards have dedicated media keys, such as: play, stop, next, previous, volume up/down, etc.


Battery power, or battery capacity, represents the amount of electrical energy that a battery can store. More battery power can be an indication of longer battery life.

Fast charging technologies, like Qualcomm’s Quick Charge or MediaTek’s Pump Express, are used to reduce the time it takes to charge a device. For example, with Quick Charge 3.0, the battery can be charged to 50% in just 30 minutes.

The manufacturer offers a branded wireless charging kit. To charge the device, you simply put it down on its charging base.

The battery is removable and can be replaced by the user if broken.


Devices with a HDMI or mini HDMI port can transfer high definition video and audio to a display.

802.11ac wireless works on the 5GHz frequency range. It offers higher transfer rates, improved reliability, and improved power consumption. It provides advantages for gaming and HD video streaming.

3.has NFC

✖Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 LTE

✖Samsung Galaxy Tab S7 Plus

NFC (near-field communication) allows a device to perform simple wireless transactions, such as mobile payments. Note: this feature may not be available in all markets.

You can add widgets to the home screen. This allows you to have more flexibility and to see information at a glance, without going into the app.

A multi-user operating system allows multiple users to access the device. Each user has a dedicated profile with apps and data available only to them.

Bluetooth is a wireless technology standard that allows data transfers between devices placed in close proximity, using short-wavelength, ultra-high frequency radio waves. Newer versions provide faster data transfers.

The device has a fingerprint scanner which identifies the user.

The download speed is a measurement of the internet connection bandwidth, representing the maximum data transfer rate at which a device can access online content.


The ultra power-saving mode, also called low power mode, is an effective way to extend the battery life of the device. Usually, it involves limiting screen brightness and contrast, disabling location services, restricting connectivity, and turning off nonessential apps.

A multi-lens camera captures two or more images and overlays them. This technology creates sharper images, especially in low light conditions, and allows you to use effects such as softening the background.
