SAMSUNG GALAXY TAB S7 [One Month Later]

Tab S7 ➡️ https://mikeobrienmedia.com/galaxy-tab-s7
It’s been a month since this was released and I have some thoughts on this… Tablets live in a weird space but is this one an exception? Should you buy it? You may want to know this…

ADDITIONAL REVIEW NOTES:
PHYSICAL:
Samsung gets updates for ~3 years (iPad gets updates for like 5 years)
120Hz screen
Display is very bright and vibrant!
Having lots of Galaxy phone tools on a laptop-like experience is powerful. Great for multi-tasking
S-pen latency is extremely low
S-Pen air gestures are nice (arrow up, left, scribble for screen capture)
Where can you stick the S Pen? – only the back or top, but only the back charges it
Placing the s-pen on the back when not looking takes practice
Perfect size for airplane tray working
Fingerprint sensor is not in the most natural location
I think it might be better than an in-display sensor in this case
Works well enough
Battery life is actually great! I am easily getting a couple days per charge
Charging takes a very long time with the included charger (3+ hrs)
Speakers are fantastic

KEYBOARD CASE:
Keyboard typing speed test: 65 words per minute (I am able to get 70-80 normally)
Some punctuation and peripheral keys throw me off because they are smaller
Pen holder on back is amazing

CAMERAS:
Great for video calls and scanning documents
Some architects or designers may want to use the cameras to take photos and draw on physical space
(Camera testing)

SOFTWARE and UI
Mouse can appear anywhere!
Dex mode is an extremely cool feature, but could still use some improvement
Wireless Dex allows you to use devices farther away without long cables (hotel TV)
Can you message and do phone stuff? – yes!
Android tablets are far from perfect. Many apps are not optimized, won’t go full screen in Dex, and/or won’t allow landscape view
Adobe products are just ok, Microsoft and Samsung are great, Google are ok
My Files leaves a lot to be desired

CONCLUSION:
Tablets still live in this weird limbo. Laptops are becoming more portable and phones are becoming larger and more powerful. Most of what I can do with this tablet, I could do better with either my phone or laptop.
Like a sports car and a pickup truck. A sports car is like a smartphone, and the pickup truck is like your laptop. Both are great, but sometimes a compact SUV is what you really want.
Great for recipes in the kitchen, watching media, mounting in your car, and working while traveling or on the go

As far as tablets go, this is the best Android tablet, and a solid competitor against the iPad

    Hey I have a problem with using Youtube in the tab.

    I use Chrome and Samsung internet Browser. And it is not possible to let youtube play in the background when I change the tab. It is automatically paused. I noticed that Brave browser let me do it by changing something in settings but it is annoying to use a lot of browsers actually.
    Another problem is that Samsung Internet Browser can not play videos in Youtube in high resolutions while others work perfectly. anyone knows how to fix?

  2. Isaac Juarez on May 20, 2021 at 11:23 pm

    What kind of case are you using?

  3. Tyler on May 20, 2021 at 11:23 pm

    Do you have a yellow tint on white backgrounds? Because mine does and it sucks so bad! Not getting the s7+ was a huge mistake for me and because samsung is a greedy whore they won’t let me return it

  6. assassinate241 on May 20, 2021 at 11:27 pm

    Quite a useful video, thanks. As someone who has used an iPad for 8+ years, I currently have an iPad Pro 11" (2018) and a family member has a budget Galaxy Tab A7. In my opinion, over the year the iPads apps have started to become more and more like their mobile counterparts so it’s quite uncommon to see an app actually make use of the larger display. Some apps (Instagram is the most popular example, even tho I no longer have an Instagram account) still use their iPhone 4/4S version just made massive so the Android app is actually better. People still say that apps on iPad are better than their Android tablet versions and for some apps that is 100% correct (think Adobe apps which take full advantage of what iPad can offer) but most are equally as good/bad and the really bad ones on iOS are actually better on Android so I think my next tablet may be a Tab S7+ for the better display. Sure the new M1 iPad with mini LED display seems amazing but it seems like it will be too big and still is only 1080p for consuming content so only definitive positive iPads have now is the accessory ecosystem.
    I’m a little concerned if the regular S7 display is any better than what iPads offer but for the S7+, I believe it’s the best. Just have to work out if buying a family member the Tab S7 is a good idea. Thanks for the video 🙂

    i have the tabS7+ 256gigs and Samsung 512gigs- microSD man am never going back to apple. people prefer the ipad because of the beautiful apple logo. just wait for the tabS-Fold in 2022 it will drop your jaw.

  9. Lars Huisinga on May 20, 2021 at 11:33 pm

    It´s actually a Galaxi Tab S7 not a Galaxy Tab S7 i saw it on the ad.

  10. aneedasophia on May 20, 2021 at 11:37 pm

    yeees on the fingerprint in power button. bring em back ✨
    really hoping for a better keyboard-cover (backlit, typing experience, trackpad, backstand with the keyboard in) and rounder design for the s-pen
    aaaaaaand better ms support

  11. hamid on May 20, 2021 at 11:37 pm

    Is amoled screen in s7+ really worth it ? Or i can get s7 and no big deal ?

  12. Ashadullah Ali Naim on May 20, 2021 at 11:40 pm

  13. RIK FONTANA on May 20, 2021 at 11:40 pm

    I am excited to be getting mine next week and just saw your video. Your few negatives have no effect on what I’ll be doing so now even more sure I got the right one for me. Thanks much!

  14. FeviQwik on May 20, 2021 at 11:41 pm

  15. adam p on May 20, 2021 at 11:42 pm

    Is the 11inch S7 usable at all for Dex or is it just too small?

  16. Anuraag Gupta on May 20, 2021 at 11:42 pm

    For note taking tablets are emerging as an ideal choice

  17. Jensen Ko on May 20, 2021 at 11:44 pm

    Thanks for the review. Plan to buy for replacement my old Samsung Galaxy tab.

  26. Shubham Arora on May 20, 2021 at 11:49 pm

    What’s your pick between ipad vs samsung tab?

  27. Ganja The Cat on May 20, 2021 at 11:51 pm

    Regarding using apps in DEX, how they’re presented (defaulting to portrait, not being able to switch to landscape, etc), is largely the app publisher’s responsibility. That’s why you have the more polished apps from bigger publishers like Microsoft and Samsung working really well, adapting to your usage/orientation.

  28. Tyrael Kamh on May 20, 2021 at 11:51 pm

    Those sharp S:es from the mic is horrible tbh

  29. Jayden Julian on May 20, 2021 at 11:53 pm

    Thank you

  39. BloodAmethystx on May 21, 2021 at 12:12 am

    Can anyone tell me if the pen makes scratches on the screen ? I wanna buy this tablet but normally I never use any screen protector but since I buy this especially for drawing I want to be sure it’s "safe" to use the pen.

  40. Charles Wendt on May 21, 2021 at 12:13 am

    I have a Samsung S7 have used it for about a week, it is a piece of fecal matter compared to my iPads.

  41. Fara Shaikh on May 21, 2021 at 12:15 am

    Does this comes with dialler for phone calls?

  42. Jonathan Moua on May 21, 2021 at 12:18 am

    Thanks for sharing your opinions on the S7 tablet. I’m looking to buy one and it will be an excellent device to have for sales people like me.
