While we didn't test this Ultra model (yet!), in our 11-inch Galaxy Tab S8 review, we were impressed by its bright, vivid display, solid performance and S Pen. Battery life was top notch, too, at nearly 13 hours in our Laptop Mag Battery test of constant web browsing over Wi-Fi at 150 nits of brightness. When the stardust settled, we gave the Galaxy Tab S8 an overall rating of 4 out of 5-stars, not to mention our Editor's Choice award. We expect the Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra to carry on the galactic legacy of excellence.
