The main highlight is its AMOLED display, which is the same display technology used in its high-end smart phone like the Samsung Galaxy S and Note series. It also marks Samsung’s return of producing AMOLED based tablets since its last model, the Galaxy Tab 7.7 2 years ago. The display boast better experience than conventional LCD displays as it offers better contrast and more vibrant colours which arguably some might find over saturated. On AMOLED displays, each individual pixel can be turn on or off for better power efficiency especially when viewing darker colours. This is more apparent when the display is showing true blacks which also makes it more power efficient than standard LCD panels. Like the Galaxy S5, the Galaxy Tab S also has an Ultra Power Saving Mode where it turns the display to black and white to prolong battery usage.

Being a flagship tablet, The Tab S is super thin at 6.6mm and weighs 467 grams for the 10.5-inch and 297 grams for the smaller 8.4-inch model. The home button in front also doubles up as a finger print scanner that lets you set separate tablet profiles for different users.
