The Samsung Galaxy Tab S7 Plus has a larger screen and is the only model with the potential for 5G connectivity. It also comes with a bundled stylus and the tablet can be used in DeX mode, a desktop-like user interface that transforms it into a makeshift laptop. It's also one of the first mobile devices to support Microsoft's Project xCloud game-streaming service.

pcmag[6]

Sentiment Score[*] 64%
Reviewers from Pcmag have found the following[***]:
The $649.99 Galaxy Tab S7 is Samsung's take on the tablet as laptop. It's a nicely built Android tablet, but it's not nearly as well equipped for work and play as Apple's $599 iPad Air. Samsung's included S Pen is small but mighty. But Samsung is pitching this tablet as a tablet for work, and it simply isn't up to the job.

Pros[**]
  • Lightweight and portable
  • Solid performance
  • Long battery life
Cons[**]
  • Fingerprint sensor doesn't work in landscape mode
  • S Pen is small but mighty

Reviewers from Pcmag have found the following[***]:
The Samsung Galaxy Tab S7+ is the most capable Android productivity tablet on the market. With impressive features, incredible performance, and all-day battery life, it's the best Android tablet you can buy right now. The optional Book Cover Keyboard Case ($229.99) is hit-or-miss.

Pros[**]
  • Beautiful 120Hz display
  • Powerful Snapdragon 865 processor
  • All-day battery life
  • S Pen included in box

Reviewers from Phonearena have found the following[***]:
The Galaxy Tab S7+ has it all: super-sleek and stunning design, 5G connectivity, a gorgeous and super-smooth 120Hz display, top-of-the-line processor, a functional S Pen with lower latency. With its optional keyboard case, humongous battery, and DeX mode, it is now closer than ever to being that mythical laptop replacement.

Pros[**]
  • Beautiful 120Hz display
  • 5G connectivity
  • S Pen with lower latency
  • Great battery life
Cons[**]

Reviewers from Phonearena have found the following[***]:
Samsung recently launched its latest top-tier tablet — it's big, it's powerful, it has the fantastic S Pen and a pretty display. So… can it enter the ring and survive? It really comes down to the age-old Android vs iOS preference. If you happen to be platform-agnostic, here are the main things you need to consider.

Pros[**]
  • Super-sharp AMOLED display
  • Fantastic S Pen
  • Great battery life
Cons[**]

Sentiment Score[*] 76%
Reviewers from Techadvisor have found the following[***]:
The Tab S7+ is Samsung's most ambitious tablet to date. Biggest upgrade is the move to a 120Hz refresh rate, bringing it in line with Apple's latest iPad Pros. The S-Pen makes writing or sketching much more intuitive, while some impressive palm rejection tech means you don't have to worry about accidental screen presses. It's not the only biometric option for unlocking the device, with the 8Mp selfie camera also supporting face unlock.

Pros[**]
  • Gorgeous design
  • Beautiful 120Hz screen
  • Excellent battery life
Cons[**]
  • In-display fingerprint scanner is frustrating

techradar[11]

Sentiment Score[*] 83%
Reviewers from Techradar have found the following[***]:
The Galaxy Tab S7 Plus has the best screen we've ever seen on an Android tablet. It's thinner and lighter than the 12.9-inch iPad Pro. The S Pen snaps magnetically onto the back of the tablet where it charges wirelessly. Android developers just aren't as interested in optimizing apps for a tablet interface.
Find the original article here.
Pros[**]
  • Gorgeous 12.4-inch OLED screen
  • Fast Snapdragon 865 Plus processor
  • Excellent battery life
Cons[**]
  • S Pen isn't as responsive as the iPad Pro

tomsguide[12]

Sentiment Score[*] 80%
Reviewers from Tomsguide have found the following[***]:
Samsung's Galaxy Tab S7 is an all-screen tablet with thin bezels and an aluminum frame. At 10 x 6.5 x 0.2 inches and 1.1 pounds, it's thinner and lighter than the Surface Pro 7. It's a hair heavier than the 11-inch iPad Pro and the 10.9-inch Apple iPad Air 2020.

Pros[**]
  • Beautiful 120Hz display
  • Beautiful aluminum chassis
  • Long battery life
Cons[**]
  • Mediocre performance
  • Awkward keyboard cover

tomsguide[13]

Reviewers from Tomsguide have found the following[***]:
The Galaxy Tab S7 Plus looks a lot like the iPad Pro, with shaved down bezels and an elegant frame. Both tablets have similar internals, so you're not sacrificing performance with your choice for a big slate or a smaller screen. The combination of in-screen fingerprint reader and facial recognition makes me wish Apple never got rid of Touch ID.

Pros[**]
  • Bright, colorful screen
  • Long battery life
  • Fast fingerprint reader
  • 5G connectivity
Cons[**]
  • Not as powerful as the Galaxy Tab S7

Reviewers from Trustedreviews have found the following[***]:
The Samsung Galaxy Tab S7 will cost £619 when it hits shelves later in August. The 11-inch version is light enough to clutch in one hand and feels like it's going to be an ideal size for note-taking with the included S Pen. The screen is the other star here, it's an adaptive refresh panel that can range from 1Hz to 120Hz. There's a Snapdragon 865+/Exynos 990, 6GB RAM and 128GB storage.

Pros[**]
  • Beautiful OLED display
  • In-display fingerprint sensor
  • Good battery life
Cons[**]
  • Nothing in particular

Reviewers from Trustedreviews have found the following[***]:
The Samsung Galaxy Tab S7 Plus will cost £799 ($849, 128GB) or £999 (5G) when it hits shelves later in August. Samsung has put everything into making this the best tablet going. It's got a high-resolution 120Hz display, an S Pen stylus in the box and the same Snapdragon 865 Plus chipset you'll find in some versions of the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra. This is a true flagship tablet, the likes of which Samsung hasn't released in a long time.

Pros[**]
  • Super-high-resolution 120Hz display
  • S Pen stylus included in the box
  • Great battery life
Cons[**]
  • Nothing in particular

Sentiment Score[*] 82%
Reviewers from Whathifi have found the following[***]:
The Galaxy Tab S7+ has the fastest processor found in an Android tablet. The 12.4in Super AMOLED display is among the finest we've seen on a handheld slab. Samsung has improved the S Pen, which can now be magnetically attached to a strip on the rear panel. It's a neat integration, although we find the pen is easily knocked off when you're holding the tablet.

Pros[**]
  • Bright, vivid 16:10 AMOLED display
  • S Pen is magnetically attached to the rear panel
Cons[**]
  • Nothing in particular
