The Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 Could Be the iPad Pro Alternative Android Fans Have Been Waiting For

Last year I really enjoyed the Samsung Galaxy Tab S4. It doubled as both a simple media consumption gadget and a mobile productivity machine. And with the imminent arrival of iPad OS, it feels like premium tablets have matured to a point where they can frequently replace a traditional laptop. However, the Tab S4's outdated processor combined with a £600 price tag made it difficult to fully embrace, but on the new Galaxy Tab S6, Samsung has updated the guts on its top-spec tablet and crammed in a handful of new features – all while keeping its starting price the same. And after spending a short time checking out the Galaxy Tab S6 ahead of its September 6th release, it’s starting to look like Android fans finally have a worthy alternative to the iPad Pro.

Thanks to their sophisticated watch-band hinges, Lenovo’s high-end convertibles also had a real sense of style and personality. Read More >>

How Two Big Things Stopped the Samsung Galaxy Tab S4 From Winning Me Over

After checking it out briefly when it first announced, I was prepared to hate the Samsung Galaxy Tab S4. Sporting outdated specs similar to last year’s Galaxy Note 8 (except with 2GB less of RAM and worse cameras), no fingerprint reader, and a price tag of £600 (and that’s not including its keyboard dock), the Tab S4's underlying components just didn’t make sense. And for all that, what was Samsung offering in return? A slightly larger screen with slightly smaller bezels and Samsung’s Dex software instead of Chrome OS? Read More >>

The Laptop Is Dying

There's an old joke about a doctor giving an elderly patient some good news and bad news. "Give me the bad news first," the old guy says. "OK, you've got cancer and you're dying. Best case, you have a few years left." "Oh god, that's awful," cries the old man. "What's the good news?" "Well," says the doctor, "You're in the best shape of your life, and your dementia means you won't remember any of this in a few hours." And that is, essentially, the Windows laptop renaissance.

Sony Vaio Flip: One of the Most Logical Laptop Convertibles Yet

Convertibles as a whole aren't the most sensible thing in the world. At this point, most are still rife with compromises, gimmicks, and odd decisions. Sony's new Vaio Flip is too, but its gimmick — a screen that folds back on itself—also happens to make a whole lot of sense. Read More >>
