Features of the Samsung Galaxy Tab S7 FE

Battery Life7
  • Display

Samsung Galaxy Tab S7 FE has a 12.4 inches display with an 84.6% screen-to-body ratio and a 1600 x 2560 pixels resolution. The display is one of the strongest points of the Samsung Galaxy Tab S7 FE. It has a bigger and better display than the Samsung Galaxy Tab S7.

The dual Dolby Atmos speakers complement the excellent display well. The full-screen display with the Dolby speakers makes it a good viewing experience.

  • Storage

Samsung Galaxy Tab S7 FE offers 64GB 4GB RAM. There is also an option of 128GB 6GB and 256GB 8GB RAM. But the base model offers 64GB 4GB RAM storage. It is not a sufficient storage space but Samsung has offered an expandable option of up to 1TB and has given a dedicated microSDXC memory card slot. 

  • Performance

The Samsung Galaxy Tab S7 FE is equipped with Android 11, UI 3.1.1 operating system. It has a powerful Qualcomm SM7225 Snapdragon 750G chipset, Octa-core (2×2.2 GHz Kryo 570 & 6×1.8 GHz Kryo 570) CPU, and Adreno 619 GPU. 

The performance of the device is fast and smooth. You can switch between the apps smoothly or run simultaneous apps without experiencing any lag. 

  • Design

The Samsung Galaxy Tab S7 FE has a glass front, aluminum back, and frame. The tab looks elegant and is available in four colors – Black, Silver, Green, and Pink. The device is pretty sturdy and the aluminum body feels glass-like.

The S-Pen is included with the tablet and it is a standard stylus that does not require charging. Samsung giving away an S-Pen without charging for it is one of the key points when you make a decision to buy a tablet. 

  • Camera

The Samsung Galaxy Tab S7 FE is equipped with 2 cameras. 8MP main camera with Auto-Focus and video recording at 1080@30fps, 5MP selfie camera with Fixed-Focus, and video recording at 1080@30fps.

  • Note-Taking Experience

Note-Taking experience in the Samsung Galaxy Tab S7 FE is smooth and easy. The S-Pen that is included with the device is a boon and can exclusively be used for taking down notes. The fact that you don’t have to charge the S-Pen gives you ample time to work with it and for longer durations. 

The smooth display is of great help as well, as is the processor where you do not feel any lag when writing down notes or when you use S-Pen for various activities. 

  • Battery Life

The Samsung Galaxy Tab S7 FE has a great battery life. The device has a Li-Po 10090 mAh, non-removable battery installed in it. Samsung claims to offer upto 13 hours of 720p video playback. There is a 45w fast charging option but you will have to buy that separately from the store.

Pros & Cons

  • DeX
  • Large display
  • Stylus 
  • 5G
  • Slow charging
  • A fingerprint sensor could be better
  • 45w charger is separately sold
  • Quite expensive for budget version

Final Verdict: Is Samsung Galaxy Tab S7 FE Worth It?

Well, we liked it. Especially the big 12.4-inch LCD display. Sure it would be treated if it would have an AMOLED display like S8 Ultra, but we have to keep in mind this is meant to be a budget tablet by Samsung.

For a budget tablet, it didn’t feel cheap, the battery life is great, the audio is great, the display is big and great, the design looks on point, and it worked flawlessly no glitches no errors, nothing.

If you want a device where you can take notes with a keyboard or with a stylus it’s a great option. If you want the fastest and best Android tablet, then this tab is not for you.
