Samsung released its latest premium Android tablet, the Galaxy Tab S3

This sleek new device sports a gorgeous 9.7-inch Super AMOLED display that delivers stunningly vibrant images and video. 

It also comes packed with a fast Snapdragon processor and ample RAM, ensuring smooth overall performance.

The Tab S3's luxurious metal and glass design, which Samsung calls its most refined yet. 

Its quad speakers also draw acclaim for loud, clear audio. The included S Pen stylus now feels more comfortable to hold.

The Tab S3's long-lasting battery exceeds 11 hours per charge. Its USB-C port enables swift refueling. 

Gamers will appreciate gaming-centric presents like the Game Launcher and Tools. 

HDR support and features like multi-window bolster this tablet's entertainment and productivity chops.

Reviewers widely panned Samsung's $130 keyboard accessory for its poor, cramped layout. A few even worried the Tab S3's copious glass makes it fragile.

Additionally, while the Tab S3's quad speakers impress, reviewers say laptop-rivaling slates like the iPad Pro still pump out richer, louder sound. 

But those craving the ultimate premium Android tablet will find few alternatives that stack up. 

For digital artists, gamers and video bingers seeking top-tier specs and features, the Galaxy Tab S3 shines…if you can stomach the high sticker price.
