The Samsung Galaxy Tab S7 measures 28.5x19.5x.5cm and weighs 576 grams this with the supplied stylus attached in its charge port on the back.
The viewable screen is 26.5x16.5cm which gives the notional diagonal imperial measurement of 12.4inches.
This review unit was sent to me by Vodafone who have it available in Black or as I was sent Mystic Bronze. It is currently available in 4G or 5G versions the former is £17 a month cheaper.
So in no particular order the statistics it has a 10090mAh battery. The display is a very smooth 120Hz. It has a Snapdragon 865+ processor; the display is super Amoled and shows 266 pixels per inch.
Onto the cameras they are 13MP wide angle, 5MP ultra-wide angle and 4K video.
It supports charging at 45watts which means a total charge in around 90 minutes.
It has 6GB RAM and 128GB of storage. You can insert a Micro SD card up to 1TB to increase storage and the single USB ‘C’ port also supports an OTG device. I also tested recently reviewed D-Link 6 in 1 card reader device which also worked so you could also attach a USB hard drive so plenty of storage options. You could also store in the Cloud with One Drive and Samsung Cloud Storage.
The on screen keyboard is 48 keys and easy enough to use for most everyday tasks.
The S Pen (stylus) is rather good at drawing and the Tablet has the ability to convert writing to text.
On the fun side you get four months of You Tube Premium free.
In the box is a fold out Quick Start Guide the all-important pin to insert your Sim and Micro SD Card, the stylus as well as the charger and USB lead.
Going around the outside in Landscape mode has the on/off and volume rocker buttons a pin hole microphone and Sim entry point. The right side has the two speakers top and bottom with the USB ‘C’ port in between. The base has dock connectors but I assume that is an extra. The left side has speakers top and bottom with a pin hole microphone in between. The back has the charging point for the S-Pen (stylus) with the twin cameras and LED flash nearer the edge.
The one missing thing apart from something like the D-Link 6 in 1 hub which I used a lot during my review is a set of Bluetooth earbuds more or less essential for those using it as a phone.
Vodafone have a range of plans for the Samsung Galaxy Tab 7 with 5G unit ranging from 6GB of Data for £65 month with £20 upfront to unlimited data for £76 a month with £10 upfront. Sim free the tablet is available, at the time of publication, from Amazon for £999.
