Samsung Galaxy Tab s6 Lite comes with Samsung’s Qualcomm-powered S-pen. An incredibly capable pen packaged right here in with every single s6 Lite. And all this for only 39,000 Kenya shillings. To break it down, this is a great deal. You can get drawing displays for less. But they aren’t super portable. They need to be connected to a computer or you can get something like an iPad for around this price point, which is comparable.
The Galaxy Tab s6 Lite is a fully functional Android tablet. It has everything you need right here and one lightweight portable shell. It also comes with four months of YouTube without ads. So if you want to binge-watch your favorite YouTuber, you can do that.
The pen magnetically sticks to the side of the tablet similar to the surface pro pen or the Apple pencil. I much prefer this to the way the tab S6 pen is positioned along the back. I think this is because it doesn’t have to charge. There’s no battery in the pen, so you can throw those magnets anywhere on the tablet.
Either way, I find this position way more comfortable for storage. Overall. This is a very capable Android tablet. But what compromises are you making jumping down from the S6? First, we have no fingerprint reader under the glass, which isn’t so much of a surprise there, but you still get facial recognition by using the front-facing camera.
Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 Lite Display
The display here is a TFT LCD screen and I’m going, to be honest. I think that the difference between the LCD screens and the AMOLED screens is overrated. Yes, there is a difference. Yes! AMOLED is better. It gets brighter, it gets dimmer. There’s a wider range, more color, but the only way I’ve been able to tell the difference is by putting the two screens right next to each other.
If you tend to use your devices in really sunny places or take them outside or use them in the dark a lot. That sort of thing might matter to you. But I don’t think it’s that big a deal, especially when you’re looking at the price difference between them. There are also no connector pins on the back of the tablet for say a keyboard peripheral.
Let’s talk about the specs. We’re going to start with the display itself. It’s 10.4 inches corner to corner with a 2000 x 1200 pixel resolution. It’s got an octa-core processor, 4 gigs of Ram, and comes with either 64 gigabytes or 128 gigabytes of storage. It gets the job done for most tasks. Bouncing between apps, multitasking in any drawing app that I use.
All of that is going to run just fine. One place where you’re going to see a difference though is gaming. It’s not going to be as fast as the standard Galaxy S6 tab. On the back. You’re going to find an 8-megapixel camera and then flip it around to the front and you’ve got your 5-megapixel camera. The S-pen itself is battery-free. So you are giving up some of the Bluetooth features that you find in the tab Galaxy S6.
Dex and software
And what about decks? Nope, it’s not here. I was a little bit surprised because I always think of Dex as a software thing here. Dex turns your Samsung device into a computer when you connect it to an external monitor. I don’t use it much, but I liked the concept. Let’s turn your phone into your everything device. Probably the reason they haven’t included it here is that the USB connector at the bottom is a 1.0 USB connector, even though it’s a USB-C-shaped connector.
Of course, the last thing you’re losing, which I mentioned before, aired the Bluetooth features on the pen, the ability to scroll through pictures using the pen or take a picture from a distance. Some of the things that add though are pretty good. For example, there’s a headphone Jack here. Not that you need it because I found the two speakers, one on either side are pretty good. The battery is solid, it should last you most of the day and it supports fast charging. I also want to shout out to the case at Samsung made for this thing.
Let’s talk about drawing. Samsung has licensed Qualcomm tech, which is a really good thing. As far as the actual drawing experience, the pen is fantastic. Okay. It might be overstating it a bit. It’s a good drawing experience. Lines are pretty smooth, pressure works well, it’s predictable. It’s everything that I want out of a pen. There is one downside. It is that we have palm rejection and it’s not great palm rejection. Most of the time it works well, but, commonly, you lift your Palm after drawing and you leave little marks on the canvas.
Pros and cons. If you’re going to be using this for drawing and only drawing, then I don’t see a big between this and his big brother, the S6 Tab. Yeah, you’re going to lose some of the bells and whistles. You can tell that it’s a little bit of a step down here and there. But I think the core elements, the most important things that you need are, are all there. It’s a good drawing tablet. The cons? Well, you can go down the spec sheet and point out how it’s not as good as the more expensive S6.
But all in all, nothing is glaring here. There were no. showstoppers. Often with a windows tablet, when you get to the lowest configuration. But here, the lowest-end configuration still runs Android well. You’re going to see the lack of processing when you get to gaming apps and things like that. But for everyday things, the things you would use it for, it’s fine.
