A good tablet with a bad price

from Android Police
The Tab S3 has a fabulous screen with lovely colors, support for HDR video, and quad speakers. This could shape up to be a fantastic media consumption device. It's also got the cool (more comfortable) S Pen that makes it good for taking notes. Performance has also improved over other recent Samsung devices. The fingerprint sensor is faster, too...

A media consuming tablet first and foremost

from Android Authority
Samsung's Galaxy Tab S3 is a beautiful, well-built specification powerhouse that's perfect for consuming all types of media. But in a market where the iPad Pro and numerous high-end Windows 10 tablets exist, it's hard to justify the Tab S3's $600 price point... Full review

Premium design, performance is quite good

from Laptop Magazine
The Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 has a lot of stand-out features, including its superb AMOLED screen with support for HDR content, precise handwriting and drawing capabilities via the included S Pen, and gorgeous glass-and-metal design. But I'm not so sure the Tab S3 -- or any other tablet -- is worth $600. That's a ton of money to spend on a device you use to stream Netflix and sketch notes... Full review

This great iPad Pro competitor is worth $600

from Venture Beat
The Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 is a useful tablet that is worth carrying around while on the go. If you had its predecessor, the Tab S2, you might encounter some sticker shock when considering an upgrade — the S3 is $600, while the S2 was $400. However, if you think of the S3 as a competitor to the Surface Book 4 and the iPad Pro, the price is pretty comparable, and it’s an Android device... Full review

The high price of a well-rounded Android tablet

from Ars Technica
The Galaxy Tab S3 is unquestionably a more capable and more versatile tablet than the Tab S2. It performs better than Samsung's previous device, has a sleeker look and feel, benefits from the included S Pen, and offers more for current Galaxy smartphone users with features like Samsung Flow. Aside from its unique features, the Tab S3 won't break a sweat while it lets you easily watch Netflix, stream Spotify, sketch artwork, and do basic Web browsing... Full review

Samsung's best tablet screen is a sight to behold

from Cnet
Samsung packs buzz-worthy features like S Pen and HDR support into its new premium Galaxy Tab S3, but without a keyboard packed in, it's still more about content consumption than creation... Full review

Feels like a high-end device

from SlashGear
The Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 is as close to the Galaxy Note 7 as we’re going to get – until the Galaxy Note 8 arrives later this year. As a note taking, media presenting, top-notch entertainment tablet, the Galaxy Tab S3 is one of the best on the market today. For those in the Samsung device ecosystem of smart devices, this tablet has great potential as a sweet-spot between smartphone and PC – ideal for evening couch-time use... Full review

A premium (if flawed) Android tablet experience

from The Next Web

I’ve been a bit harsh on some aspects the Tab S3, but don’t get me wrong: it’s one of the best Android tablets you can buy. It’s only real competition is the Pixel C, and the Tab S3 still has important advantages like stylus support and a better display. The Tab S3 isn’t revolutionary, but it’s an all around solid Android tablet effort. It’s expensive, but it’s also an easy recommendation if you’re invested in Google’s ecosystem and are looking for a new tablet, whether that’s to watch Netflix or even get some real work done....

Currently the best Android tablet around

from Digital Trends
The Galaxy Tab S3 is an excellent Android tablet that offers solid performance, good audio capabilities, Android 7.0 Nougat, and good battery life, all with an excellent display to boot. At $600, though, it’s among the priciest Android tablets you can buy, and problems arise when you look at the competition and the demographic for this tablet...
