The Tab S9 Ultra represents the absolute pinnacle of Android tablets. It’s too big (14.6in display) and expensive (from £1,199/$1,199) for most people to consider, and even with the keyboard cover it probably won’t replace your laptop.
But if money and size are no objects, it’s a stunning device. The 1848×2960 OLED screen is a joy to use, especially with a dynamic 120Hz refresh rate. Performance from an overclocked Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chip is almost as good as it gets, and an IP68 rating ensures adequate protection from water and dust.
The included S Pen is also very good, though it doesn’t dock into the tablet like on the Galaxy S23 Ultra. But that’s hardly surprising, given it’s just 234g and 8.9mm thick.
Aside from price, the lack of Android apps designed for such a big screen remains its biggest limitations. And there’s no 5G support in the US, though it is available in the UK.
