The Galaxy Tab S6 is arguably the best Android tablet ever made with a sleek design, powerful internals and handy features. However, it’s pretty pricey as an entertainment device and as a productivity workhorse there are better options elsewhere.

Design-wise it's got a lot going for it -- the hardware makes up for the high price, but the software leaves something to be desired. I don't even entirely blame Samsung for this one since Android tablets are generally bad because apps don't support larger displays. With as many gripes as I have with the Tab S6, I still think that it's a fantastic Android tablet --possibly even the best available right now.

Probably overkill compared to the Tab S5e

The Galaxy Tab S6 is arguably the best Android tablet ever made with a sleek design, powerful internals and handy features. However, it’s pretty pricey as an entertainment device and as a productivity workhorse there are better options elsewhere.

The best Android tablet you can buy

from Android Headlines

Rather than competing with a compact iPad, Samsung's Galaxy Tab S6 competes with its top-line product. It also competes, where applicable with Surface. There are obvious drawbacks to Android there, mostly surrounding software availability. But This is going to be the best tablet for the money on the Android side. Bar none.

It has the best possible hardware in terms of performance for an Android tablet. We like the vivid AMOLED panel, and the quad speakers do make it a good device to consume media on. Thankfully for Samsung, there isn't a lot of competition, as manufacturers have pretty much stopped making Android tablets. If you absolutely have to get an Android tablet, the Galaxy Tab S6 is your best bet.

A great tab with some innovation gone wrong

from BGR

The Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 is a good Android tablet that comes with excellent media features. On the positives, it’s a great entertainment experience along with good drawing and writing experience. It has good day-long battery backup as well. But the adhesive on the back cover may turn off some people, which makes it quite risky.

The Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 makes a strong case for itself when it comes to performance, and as an entertainment device. It will also appeal to those who need a stylus for their tablets given Samsung has typically done well in this area. It is also more affordable than the iPad Pro series and the Surface Pro devices in the Indian market, where even the accessories cost a lot more.
