I really think the tab s8+ is the best tablet on market for things like multitasking and content consumption. The screen is amazing, bright and pleasurable as well, which is one of the most important qualities for a tablet, if not the most. The size is perfect, the battery is solid and the build quality is magnificent as well. There are people complaining about performance, because the new Ipad Pros have more powerful m1-chips and indeed there is a difference when it comes to benchmarks, but you won't notice any differences there. Even though benchmarks say a lot about the power of the device, I didn't notice a single difference performance wise compared to his competitor. I wanna be honest and therefore I have to admit that there is one app I have a small issue with, Genshin. As we all know, Genshin Impact is a triple A game requiring a lot of power and to be honest with you, the game is running not as good as on the Ipads. But let me explain everything first. The problem isn't exactly the device, but the optimisation. When it comes to Genshin, ios is better optimized for it, but it's matter of time to be honest with you. The new Android 12L is comming this year and that could potentially solve this problem. I personally play Genshin on my device and the problems I noticed weren't the fps, but the resolution. I don't know why, but everytime I play this game, my tablet would use only 20-30% GPU and also 50% of CPU, so everything looks kinda sad. I know that most of you would refer to the GOS issue occured at the release, but Samsung tried to solve the problem with their new update few weeks ago and it worked for all of the games, except for Genshin. That's why I belive it's more about the optimization. Regarding apps for content creators, there are good apps for drawing like "Clip Studio Paint" or less professional "Ibis Paint", as well as video editing app like "Lumafusion" (coming soon) or "Alight Motion" (for beginners - advanced). Of course there are more options for Ios devices, but there apps will be more than enough for most of the people. As an artist and editor, I can assure you, you will be satisfied with the new Tab s8+, even if you're a professional artist or content creator. There are so many things I wanna write down, but unfortunately I don't have enough space here. I definetly recommend you the new galaxy Tab S8+, expecially if you wanna be creative. Have fun, you won't regret it, promissed! P.S: The S-pen comes with the Tablet!

Pros

  • Free S-pen
  • Camera (Cental Stage)
  • Apps (Lumafusion and ClipStudio)
  • Performance
  • Super fast charging "45W"
  • Dex-mode
  • AKG-Speakers
  • Long battery life
  • Gorilla Glass 5
  • RAM+ up to 8GB

Cons

  • Have to use the Keyboard for the Tab S7+
  • Max brightness (420nit)
  • Doesn't come with a charger
  • Sold out (in some regions)
  • Only 256GB and 8GB RAM
  • Optimization for some apps
  • Design is too similar to Tab s7+
  • Price (Tablet + Keyboard + Apps = Expensive)
