The Super AMOrganic Light-Emitting Diode (OLED) panels not only offer excellent contrast and saturated colors, but also come with the added benefit of being extra slim. The Galaxy Tab S duo is just 6.6mm thick (just 0.2mm short of matching the Xperia Z2 Tablet record) and quite light. The Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.5 Wireless Fidelity (Wi-Fi) weighs 465 grams (467 grams for the LTE version) and the Galaxy Tab 8.4 is just 294 grams (298 grams for the LTE unit).

The Galaxy Tab S family also boasts a number of sensors - IR blaster on the side and a fingerprint scanner in the Home button are the main stars here. As far as design is concerned, the slates hold a lot of cues from the Galaxy S5, as the back is plastic with a faux leather look.

The slates run Android 4.4 KitKat and Samsung's Magazine UX, which offers a lot additions to the user interface such as the Multi Window split-classy screen view, S Voice and an array of proprietary apps.
