Tablet cameras generally aren't the best, but the front camera is sharper and brighter than average among phones and tablets, and it works well for video conferencing.

Reviews Word on the street for the Samsung Galaxy Tab S 10.5

The point of the Tab S line is the display, and it indeed looks great when watching videos, viewing photos and reading ebooks.

What People Are Saying Give it to me straight


The Tab S display is in a league of its own at this point, and will become the benchmark for all tablet displays moving forward.
by Android Police (Jun, 2014)
This leads to the feeling of holding a much larger display packed into a smaller form factor – it's basically all display.
by Android Police (Jun, 2014)
This is the crown jewel of the Tab S experience, and hands down the best display I've ever seen on a tablet.
by Android Police (Jun, 2014)

Operating System

The Galaxy Tab S has 3 gigs of RAM, and that's currently the most you'll find on an Android product.
by MobileTechReview (Jul, 2014)
In Samsung's ever-growing and confusing lineup of Android tablets, the Samsung Galaxy Tab S is the latest high line for mid-2014.
by MobileTechReview (Jul, 2014)
In fact, it's an integral part of Android.

The ecosystems for Android and iOS are both strong, with Apple still enjoying a lead for quality games, tablet optimized apps and accessory selection.
by MobileTechReview (Jul, 2014)
That's kind of a shame, too, because gaming on that beautiful screen is amazing.
by Android Police (Jun, 2014)
For most other apps, however, it's far more subtle.
by Android Police (Jun, 2014)

Operating system

It's more than enough to handle Samsung's extensive software customizations including multi-window multitasking, multiple concurrent applications and more.
by MobileTechReview (Jul, 2014)
The front bezels are relatively small, and Samsung uses their usual mechanical home button flanked by capacitive buttons for multitasking and back.
by MobileTechReview (Jul, 2014)
Thanks to Samsung's customization of Android, you can move some apps to SD cards, though you can't move apps that touch core system functions and Android 4.4 is a bit pickier about which apps you can move.
by MobileTechReview (Jul, 2014)


The rear camera likewise is capable and it can shoot 1080p video.
by MobileTechReview (Jul, 2014)
As with other recent Samsung Galaxy products, you can simultaneously use the front and rear cameras.
by MobileTechReview (Jul, 2014)
In short, it's a tablet camera.
