Review Samsung Galaxy Tab S7 FE

Samsung Galaxy Tab S7 FE-I review type of creative professionals. I'm going to be taking a look at this particular tablet today from the point of view of an illustrator. So I'm not really going to touch on everything that the tablet can do. Just hit those major high points that I find. Interesting. Now in order to do that. I'm going to be comparing this a lot to last year's Galaxy Tab S7 plus which was Samsung's first. Twelve point four inch Android tablet and a device. I love a lot because I think in order to understand the

Value. What Samsung's doing here? We do have to put it against its larger or I should say larger. It's more expensive and more specced out. Brother, quick note over on my website, where I compare all of these devices. I did recently add an Android page just for tablets that I have reviewed. So if you're doing some research and you just want to find everything in one place, check that out. I picked out the 5G model which is a little bit more expensive than the base level Wi-Fi bottle the main reason. Why is because the Wi-Fi model is not yet available here in the US where I am. If we are looking at that Wi-Fi model though, we're talking about $140 difference between this and the Samsung Galaxy Tab S7 FE. Now, this is a twelve point four inch screen. This to me is the appeal of this device. We're talking about drawing and illustration. The more room that you have, the more luxurious the product feels to use, and that's definitely the case here. For example, if I want the largest Apple iPad, I have to buy the most expensive, Apple iPad, so,

General. I love the idea that they're taking the largest size and scaling it down at a lower price point even though the price isn't that much slower yet. So that 12.4 inch screen has a 16 by 9 aspect ratio and this is a TFT LCD display. Now, this is not the best display out there but it's not bad. It looks pretty good. I can definitely tell it's not nearly as good as the AMOLED display on the Samsung Galaxy Tab S7 FE unless you're looking at them next to each other. You're not going to necessarily notice the brightness or the color difference. The even though the The difference is definitely there. I think we're you're going to notice the difference. The most is in drawing angles. Now, I don't want to say that the drawing angles on the Fe are really bad. They're just not as good as they are on Samsung Galaxy Tab S7 FE. Plus you're looking at a straight on looks beautiful. But if you have it tilted down, you are going to notice a difference. If you like, move forward or tilt your head to the sides, the color is going to shift on you a little bit. The resolution is the same as the Samsung Galaxy Tab S7 FE. Plus we have 2560 pixels by 1600 pixels. Another big difference in the screen.

That this only has a 60 hertz refresh rate instead of a hundred and twenty Hertz refresh rate. So you're going to see that if you're looking at them next to each other, you might miss that. If you have that on your phone personally, I don't think it's that big a deal, but it really depends on the person. They scaled down some of the other specs as well. For example, the AKG speakers and there's only one on each side. Instead of two. I can definitely tell there's a difference but I will say it still sounds really good. The base model, Fe comes with 4 gigabytes of RAM and 64 gigabytes of storage. Which however briefly jump up to the 120 8 gigabyte model, that's going to go up to six gigabytes of RAM. And lastly, if you want a gigabytes of RAM jump up to the 256 gigabyte model. There's also a Micro SD card along the side. So if you do want more storage, you can add it in yourself. This is the same batteries as 7 plus, and it also has fast charging with the included USB charger. There's also an 8-megapixel camera around the back and a 5-megapixel camera around the front that 5 megapixel camera on the front also does.

1080p video. So if you're into video calls, you have that going for you and also it's centered in landscape mode instead of in portrait mode. So if you like using your laptop or your tablet, that way instead you're not going to have that weird side. I thing like you do on some iPads, and of course included here is the S Pen. I really should have said that earlier in the video. That is the reason I'm reviewing this thing to Fe and as 7 plus look, almost identical on the outside, but the Fe has a plastic shell and not an Minam glass back. The main title is the Samsung Galaxy Tab S7 FE plus has a wide angle lens camera along the back. So what they ended up cutting from this device, or more of the things that went inside of it. Then the things on the outside of it, for example, the processor in this isn't going to be as powerful as what you're going to find on that Samsung Galaxy Tab S7 FE. So if you're looking to use this for games, that sort of thing, maybe the plus is the way to go, but from what I found from just drawing and using it on a day-to-day basis. The processor was more than capable for what I needed to do something. I totally missed.

It's not different in a good way. It's not as good and if you're paying more you would expect that the 5 G version would at least have the same processor, or if anything, a slightly better, what? So maybe stay away from the 5 G Persian. I also have a keyboard case that I got for the Samsung Galaxy Tab S7 FE that works here as well. I've said in other videos. I wasn't necessarily a particularly big fan of that keyboard case. The keyboard itself is fine typing out. It is fine. It was the mouse in the cursor seem to be kind of laggy. Sometimes it would take time to wake up. Up. Also the keyboard case doesn't snap into place. It's not held in place by magnets. So it seems kind of Wiggly when you're carrying it. It feels cheap when you attach it to a really premium device. Samsung also has a new keyboard covered that they've rolled out for this device. I don't have one because well, I've got a cheap but that one doesn't have the trackpad. So if you take the trackpad away, that probably is going to remove a lot of my complaints about the old keyboard case. Let's talk about the S-Pen because this is really the reason I really enjoy Samsung products. The S Pen is a fantastic.

List to draw with the main thing that I'm looking for in any kind of pain is just one. How smooth are the lies? The lines here are very smooth to. I want to see how the pressure reacts for example. I don't want to see that blowout on the pressure curve like when you're halfway drawing a circle or trying to do a smooth transition or anything like that. If you've ever been using a brush with opacity and all of a sudden you press a little bit harder and all of a sudden way too much paint comes out. You know what I'm talking about. This pen does very well. Well, in both of those categories. The other thing that I'm always looking at when I'm using one of these is Palm rejection. And in general, most Abyssal lets you toggle on extra Palm rejection. So that's not going to happen. Occasionally. You are going to get marks and things like that on the canvas. So a lot of people do like to toggle that off. It's not quite as good in the Palm rejection category. Say the apple pencil, but it's definitely good enough. Quick note, unlike the Samsung Galaxy Tab S7 FE this is just a standard S Pen which means there's no Bluetooth connectivity or remote control features.

Functions are gestures here. And we're talking about drawing. The one thing that you might miss here. Is that extra refresh rate, which is going to give you less lag on your pants. Not a ton, but you are going to notice it. If you're looking at these two devices next to each other. I don't think most people are going to be looking at these devices next to each other. Honestly. I think the 60 hertz refresh rate is absolutely fine. It's nice to have more, but you don't need it. Yes, pain has a rubbery tip hard plastic. Styluses tend to slide around on glass screens. Like this what the rubber tip does for you? You is it gives you more control? It does take a little bit of time getting used to. It doesn't feel natural and I would not recommend putting any kind of screen protector on this at least a textured one because that's really going to wear down. This soft tip quickly depend does magnetically attached along the back. It stays put, that is a good magnet. It also magnetically attaches along the top. That's not a particularly great magnet that's going to fall off. So if you attach it on the top or on the side, whatever you want to call that and slide into an into a

Egg your pens going to fall off. You might lose it that whenever we're talking about an Android tablet. If you're looking at this versus Windows or an iPad or something like that, the big thing that I always point to are the apps. Now, there are some apps on Android nowadays that I absolutely love. For example, clip Studio. One of my favorite drawing and painting apps out. There. It is available for Android. There is a monthly subscription price after I think it's a three or six months, you know, trial period which you can get it and try it out for free, but if you're Really invested in drawing it as fantastic. There are some free apps out there who young made their own app. I just started using again after not using it for months. And wow. They've made some improvements here who we on sketch is a free app. That is really, really good. If you have an Android device, it's free. I think you should download it and try it. I think they've done a great job here and it's cool to see what they're doing. It's still missing some key features. Like you can't use masks yet and things like that. Maybe you can and I haven't dug into it enough, but I couldn't figure it out on the first try, but either

I love where they're going with that, especially for free app. Another one. I really like is infinite painter. There's I Bez paint X. That's free infinite pater has some in-app purchases, but is still very good app. Their Sketchbook made by Autodesk, another really good app. If you sign up for an account there that is also free. One thing I hear about a lot in the comments on going to mention it, here is a feature. I never use which is called decks, which allows you to take your Samsung phone or your Samsung tablet and basically plug it into a monitor. And

Use it. As you know, a desktop. Carrying it out. Personally. I don't find a lot of use in it. But a lot of people who do absolutely swear by it. So no, that's a thing. Another thing that Samsung has added is the ability to screen share with Windows computers, which basically is like an extra screen where an extra monitor that you can use besides your laptop. Even a lot of the drying functionality of the S Pen works there and if you don't have a touchscreen computer or monitor boom, now, you do off to the side. Alright, so what do I think about the Samsung Galaxy Tab S7 FE, overall, I think it's a great product. But in y'all feel about coming on here. I think the price is a little too high. For example, last year, what Samsung did around this time? Maybe a little earlier in the year, is they released a product called the tab S6 light. It was one of my all-time favorite Samsung tablets not because it was the best Samsung tablet, but because it was, the cheapest Samsung tablet, but the things they caught weren't the things you absolutely.

Right, the processor wasn't the best, the screen wasn't the best. The materials it was made out of weren't the best. However, the drawing experience was just as good, is their expensive tablets and oftentimes, you could find it on sale for, under $300, after it was released and finding something that good at that price. It's really hard to justify, really anything else in that price range? That comes near it. Maybe they Apple iPad, but that was about $100 more. Once you add in the ad in the apple pencil. So the tab S6 light was Phenomenal. And what I was hoping the Fe would be, would be this year's version of that. And in many ways it is, right. They removed a lot of features. They got that price down, but I don't think they got it down. Far enough holding into my hands and feeling it. And using it. It does feel a lot more premium, especially like the build materials that they've used compared to the S6 light. But at the end of the day, all you care about is the drawing experience. And being able to get a twelve point four inch tablet, versus a nine-point, whatever inch tablet. That's a really nice. 

But like I said at the beginning of the video, Samsung tends to Discount their products over time, and I think if they can get the price of this product down to, I don't know, under $500 down to $400. Heck, if you could get this for $400, a twelve point four inch tablet. For $400. That is an amazing, amazing deal. Heck, even at $500, getting something at this size. I think is definitely justifiable right now. I don't think the price is there right now. I think you might be Better off spending that extra money and going up and just getting the S7 Plus or what we might see, is them release next year's version, the S8 whenever that's going to come. And hope that the S7 plus goes on sale that either way. I think this is a really good product and I have no problem recommending. It. It's just the price that's holding me back a little bit. I don't think the price per value is quite there yet. I think it will be in the future when this gets discounted. So, maybe hold off for a few months and see where this goes.
