All-glass

The Galaxy Tab S3 has an all-glass back.

It's a classy departure from the plastic and aluminum designs we're used to seeing.

S Pen stylus included

It comes with an S Pen stylus that comes in handy for note-taking.

No charging needed

One of the best things about the S Pen is that it never needs to be synced or charged.

HDR-ready

The tablet is the first HDR-capable model, but the drawback is that there's no HDR content available to watch on a tablet -- yet.

HD only

Since HDR content isn't available, you have to settle for HD -- for now, that is.

Four speakers

There are four speakers on the tablet, one on each corner.

Keyboard accessory

Samsung offers a keyboard accessory for the Galaxy Tab S3, but it's an underwhelming performer.

Stylus storage

The keyboard's saving grace is its S Pen storage.
