The best Android tablet yet
I tested the Galaxy Tab S 8.4, its "small tablet" size. That model costs $400 — the same as an iPad Mini — and comes with 16GB of RAM and Wi-Fi connectivity, in your choice of white or bronze bezels. The full-size Galaxy Tab S 10.5 costs $100 more. If you want to add storage capacity, you can insert an SD card into the Galaxy Tab S. If you want a cellular model, you're out of luck: Samsung doesn't offer a Galaxy Tab S with this capability yet, though it says it will in the future.
All in all, the Galaxy Tab S is the best Android tablet you can get. From a hardware design perspective, it holds up nicely against the iPad while making other Android tablets look cheap. Too bad the fingerprint sensor doesn't really work.
