Samsung Galaxy TabPro S in the Test (Notebook Method)

Tablet or Ultrabook? The Galaxy TabPro S want to be both. But Samsung will really live up to this claim? To find out, we have tested the laptop compatibility of the Windows-based 2-in-1 device.

  1. Samsung Galaxy TabPro S in the test (notebook method)
  2. Samsung Galaxy TabPro S: interface and keyboard

The success of Microsoft’s Surface Pro has called not only the traditional notebook manufacturer on the plan, but also suppliers, with 2-in-1 devices until now had little on the hat. Among other things, Samsung with the Galaxy TabPro S dares the gap between Tablet and notebook. With the Tablet capabilities of the Galaxy TabPro S we have set ourselves apart already intensively. Now, we explicitly make the suitability of his notebook to the test.

The trend results for hybrid notebooks that increasingly blur the boundaries between Tablet and notebook. But what rating scale sets it to devices moving in this gray area? What at first sounds like a purely academic question, is quite relevant for closer inspection, because the expectations of the equipment categories – Tablet here, there – but clearly different Ultrabook. It all starts with the price: for the simplest configuration, which underlies our test, Samsung requires 999 euros. Thus the Galaxy TabPro is one of the most expensive tablets on the market S. Compared to similarly equipped 2-in-1 devices with docking keyboard, this is still not a bargain, but it is moving more in the lower price segment – especially since the keyboard cover is already included. For the cheapest Surface Pro 4, Microsoft estimated meanwhile still only 949 euros, but for the essential type cover at least another 120 euro is due.

A light-weight – also at the performance?

Another example is the data memory: 128 GB large SSD, which has bought Samsung the Galaxy TabPro S, is not bad for a tablet. Compared with the convertible, this is however quite skinny, looming in fact only 80 GB available to the user, who can – not even externally be upgraded due to lack of card reader contrary incidentally to virtually all other convertibles.

In terms of endurance, classical tablets are confronted with a different expectation as hybrid notebooks. You are less than four hours, that holds through the Galaxy TabPro S according to the MobileMark test in the application scenario “Office Productivity”, more modest but also for 2-in-1 ratios. For comparison: the Surface Pro 4 got at the same benchmark over six and a half hours after the network.

Connectivity charges apply only

We were particularly tense, as Samsung’s Windows hybrid in terms of system and graphics performance compared with the square Hirschen in the market can claim that bring more power under the hood. Not surprising, the more Narrow breasts over Intel’s core i series, especially designed for the power saving core-m3 processor in combination scored only mixed results with ‘only’ 4 GB memory. With the performance of the Surface Pro or HP elite x 2 slim Korean can’t keep up anyway. The ranks of the 2-in-1 devices in the 500-euro area, living mostly with Pentium or Celeron CPUs, can leave the Galaxy TabPro S but significantly behind. The performance is sufficient for standard tasks easily, graphically demanding games or video editing, it will be tight.

Also in the supply of interfaces, Samsung’s 2-in-1 device is clearly more Tablet than notebook. The Koreans have bought a lone USB port that is responsible also for charging, the Galaxy TabPro S. That it supports the modern 3.1 standard and thus rapidly transports data such as battery, is commendable – it is still a major annoyance. Also the fact that the adapter without the man not to can plug most of common peripheral devices with conventional USB-A plug, extra must be purchased.

Who also want to connect an external monitor or projector to the Galaxy TabPro S, will need to pick up willy-nilly the approximately 65 euro expensive multiport adapter from Samsung. This provides additional ports (three USB-A, charge compatible USB and HDMI), which should actually belong to the standard. LTE also there only at an additional cost, for the Galaxy TabPro S NFC on board. Overall the equipment focuses more on Tablet as on notebook standards. This certainly brings benefits. So search, for example, in vain for a noisy fan, even when the load operation is relatively warm.

The full keyboard, which is housed in the book cover gives no cause for criticism. Only the touchpad might have slightly larger. The Tablet is how magnetic docked at surface and co – however the display on the top row of keys used, what is not everybody’s thing is unusually close. The reason is, that due to lack of fold-out stand on the display the rear part of the keyboard dock with the rear of the cover must provide for the upright stand in notebook mode. Due to the design the display in the cover only at two different angles can be set up. Also, it must be disconnected before folding from the keyboard.

Conclusion

As a whole it should be noted that the Galaxy TabPro not quite can match S with regard to his notebook capabilities competitors such as the Surface Pro 4 Microsoft – is lacking in particular facilities. Ultimately the device especially with classical virtues of Tablet scores: compact dimensions, low weight and a brilliant display. Whether that’s enough at the end, will decide on the shop counter.
