THE SAMSUNG GALAXY TAB S4 IS THE FIRST SAMSUNG TAB TO FEATURE DEX
One of the new features of the galaxy Tab S4 is the Dex mode.
Dex is Samsung’s specialized software for giving Android a desktop interface.
With Dex feature on the Galaxy tab S4 you can have a dozen Android apps open at a time in an environment where you can resize them as windows, make them go full screen or move around.
In Dex mode, you can also plug to Galaxy Tab S4 to a monitor for a much wider experience.
On the tab S4, it is available as a mode in the Tab S4, you will need to connect other smartphones with a USB to the monitor to enjoy Dex mode.
As earlier said, the galaxy Tab S4 features connector points that allow for external keyboard connection.
The external keyboard when connected will really enhance the desktop feeling of the Dex mode.
The external keyboard doesn’t come with a track pad though, you will need to get an external Bluetooth mouse for a complete experience.
For pricing, the standard pricing for the wifi version is $649 which includes the S-pen.
The full package will cost you $800, here the external keyboard is included.
Samsung with the Tab S4 is aiming for people who desire a device that’s higher than an Ultrabook but still has a keyboard and pen.
I really wished the Galaxy tab S4 came with Qualcomm’s snapdragon 845 processor and had bigger internal storage.
But I don’t actually see these cons are being a deal breaker, snapdragon 835 processor is not a slow processor at all and the Galaxy tab S3 features micro-sd slot for storage expansion.
The Galaxy tab S4 is really a best buy.
