Design-wise, the Galaxy Tab S6 slim, stylish and looks every bit as premium as the iPad Pro. At 9.6 x 6.3 x 0.2 inches and 0.95 pounds, the Galaxy Tab S6 is smaller and lighter than the Apple iPad Air (9.8 x 6.8 x 0.2 inches, 1 pound), the 11-inch iPad Pro (9.7 x 7 x 0.2 inches, 1 pound) and its predecessor, the Galaxy Tab S4 (9.8 x 6.5 x 0.3 inches, 1.1 pounds).
In one test, the Galaxy Tab S6 swiftly loaded 15 tabs in the Samsung internet browser. Even when we pulled up a 1080p video in the YouTube app, there were no signs of it slowing down.
When you want to maximize your productivity, DeX mode turns the Galaxy Tab S6 into a laptop replacement. If you've used a Chromebook or Windows 10 laptop, then the DeX will look familiar. A task bar is at the bottom of the display and gives you access to open apps as well as important settings, like volume, Bluetooth and Wi-Fi.
Now $200 off, the Galaxy Tab S6 is a solid pickup if you're looking for a great all-around tablet.
