It’s time to compare some of new gaming-friendly devices that launched, the Galaxy Tab S6 and the Galaxy Book S. I thought it would be nice to breakdown some of the features to help you figure out which is better for you.


The Galaxy Tab S6:

  • Processor: The Galaxy Tab S6’s Snapdragon 855 processor makes it easy to rapidly switch between apps and tasks or immerse yourself in graphic-intensive games.
  • Display/Speakers: The Galaxy Tab S6 comes with an edge-to-edge Super AMOLED display so you can enjoy superior game graphics and sound from quad speakers tuned by AKG.
  • Battery: With a single charge lasting up to 15 hours* the Galaxy Tab S6’s battery gives you more hours of power (*based on laboratory testing. Battery life depends on usage).
  • Memory:  With the option of 128GB or 256GM plus an option to expand to up to 512GB with a microSD card, the Galaxy Tab S6 has room for everything.   



The Galaxy Book S:

  • Processor:  The Galaxy Book S features a Qualcomm Snapdragon 8cx processor that performs at extraordinary speeds.
  • Battery: The Galaxy Book S’s 20-hour battery* will give you more than enough power to keep you focused on the game without searching for an outlet (*average expected performance based on typical use, results may vary).
  • Lightweight: Built with lightweight aluminum and weighing just under 2 pounds, the Galaxy Book S can go where you do.   
  • Display: The Galaxy Book S’s 13” Full HD touchscreen gives you full control over what you need to get the job done.

I would have to say that the Galaxy Book S is more my style. I prefer the keyboard attached to the tablet permanently compared to the bluetooth add-on keyboard of a tablet. I own a Galaxy Tab S2 and a Chromebook Pro, which I find myself reaching more for the Chromebook Pro for my needs. 


I would have preferred a side-by-side comparison, or at least comparing all of the same specs.


I purchased the Samsung Galaxy Book S and I haven't had it very long at all and the power screen stays completely black. While charging it does blink the red light for a little while and once it turned blue and sounded as if it was starting up but nothing.  I got rid of my Galaxy 8+ for the exact same reason.  I purchased a Galaxy 9+ as a Christmas gift for myself and if it does the same thing, I will never buy another Samsung Product.

Anyone have any suggestions besides holding down the power and volume up for 10 because it doesn't work? Please help because I cannot take it to the local Best Buy because of Covid-19 and I'm sure Samsung would cost me a fortune.  I appreciate any advice,
