    GET IT FOR: Starts at Rs 79,999
    HIGHLIGHT: Performance

    Android tablets have always remained in the shadow of the iPad. However, Samsung is among the few brands that have been able to add extra characters to its flagship Galaxy Tabs. The Dex mode, for example, transforms the tablet’s interface into a full-blown desktop-like interface and more.

    The Tab S7+ is the device that is supposed to combine the best of Samsung’s hardware and offer a better tablet experience. It features a massive 12.4-inch Super AMOLED display with a 120Hz refresh rate and is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 865+ processor. The hardware combination of the Galaxy Tab S7+ makes it an ideal device for both work and play. Also, the bright and vivid display with symmetrical bezels on all sides offer a distraction-free viewing experience.

    The new S Pen now comes with ultra-low latency and that, combined with a fast 120Hz display, is a treat for content creators. T h e D e x Mode, for those who do not want to lug around their laptops, offers a more uniform experience now. Also, Samsung has worked on offering more apps and games to take advantage of the mode. However, to get the complete laptop-like experience, users will have to invest a little extra in Tab S7+ Keyboard cover that now has a better keyboard and a larger trackpad with gesture support.

    The S7+ is also pitched as the productivity machine and Samsung has made some improvements to the design by positioning the fingerprint scanner and front camera in a more accessible position. The tablet itself is well-balanced and does not feel heavy at all. It comes with a dual rear camera setup of 13MP main sensor and a 5MP ultra-wide sensor; both offer good image output.

    The massive 10090mAh battery does not fall short. It managed to provide enough juice to last 8 hours of regular office use with keyboard cover attached, and slightly above 10 hours without keyboard cover.

    At Rs 79,999, it is an expensive Android tablet. If the iPad Pro isn’t your idea of a tablet that doubles up as a laptop, then this is a perfect alternative.

    72k for android device not a intelligent choice. I would buy some ultra light windows laptop over a function limiting software.
