User Reviews 1 User Reviews The tablet has a built-in handle for carrying it around since it's so large at 18.4 inches. The plastic stand allows it to sit in either a viewing mode or a typing mode, both of which I grew to like.
- MakeUseOf
User Reviews 2 I found the Galaxy View to be a giant, unwieldy tablet that is impractical to carry around due to its large size and built-in kickstand. The kickstand allows for hands-free video watching if placed on a flat surface, or can be tilted to make typing a bit easier. However, the tablet cannot fit into a backpack.

User Reviews 3 I was surprised by how much I ended up liking the Galaxy View despite its flaws. It's essentially a giant 18.4-inch Android tablet that can double as a portable TV. The Exynos chipset and 2GB RAM deliver decent enough performance for apps and games, though with the occasional hiccup.

Samsung recently released an unusually large 18.4-inch Android tablet called the Galaxy View

This giant device functions essentially like a portable TV, aimed at families wanting to share a screen.

The Galaxy View's mammoth display and booming stereo speakers make streaming videos and shows an enjoyable experience. 

The built-in kickstand and carrying handle also make the 5.8 pound View relatively portable compared to televisions. 

Reviewers found the octa-core processor and 2GB RAM deliver decent performance for apps and games. 

Battery life exceeds expectations as well, lasting around 5 hours of video playback.

Potential uses for the Galaxy View's big screen include RVs, dorm rooms, kitchens, and road trips where limited space prevents using a full television.

However, many reviewers note significant downsides that limit the practicality of owning a Galaxy View. 

Its sheer size and weight prevent carrying it outside the home for daily use. 

The low-resolution screen lacks fine detail up close. Mediocre viewing angles also diminish image quality.

Frustratingly, the giant display does not optimize the web browsing experience. 

Mobile sites load first and there's no option to default to desktop. Performance also suffers when multi-tasking intensely. 

Reviewers also found most apps fail to take advantage of the spacious display size.

In the end, Samsung for innovating with extra large tablets like the Galaxy View. 

Its big and loud entertainment screen brings usefulness in limited cases. 

However, compromises in resolution, portability, and practicality prevent the Galaxy View from appealing to wide audiences.

Families seeking shared portable screens may find it worth considering, but individuals will likely find tablets like the iPad or Galaxy Tab more pragmatically useful.
