Samsung Galaxy Tab S8 Vs Samsung Galaxy Tab S7! (Comparison) (Review)
What i will tell you is that if you do own the galaxy tab s7, i probably wouldnt go and upgrade to the tab. S8. Just yet, but do keep in mind even though theres only one number between them. You know the s7, the s8 theres actually pretty much two generations of devices and chipsets that are between these devices, so thats a big thing to keep in mind now: im, comparing the base models, the s7 and s8, the tab s8 ultra is probably the best tablet Or one of the best tablets you can buy in the market right now. So if you have all the money in the world go for the tab, s8 ultra, but the tab s8 is still a very good tablet and so is the tab. Seven. Now i will leave both these links in the description you can get them from. There help support the channel at the same time now, on the front of these tablets, they kind of have the same type of look to them. They have the same type of design and really when you kind of look at them side by side theyre, almost exactly the same, i couldnt really tell you which one is which, on the tab, seven, we have an 11 inch tft panel, its 120 hertz and the Resolution is 1600 by 2560., but funny enough. The samsung galaxy tab s8 and the exact same footprint has the 11 inch. You know tft panel 120hz, 1600 by 2560, as well, so again youre getting pretty much the same type of experience on both, which is really good.
One thing i love about both these tablets is that they feel extremely extremely premium in the hand one doesnt feel cheaper than the other one. They have the same exact architecture, and you know when it comes down to it. I like the way both of them feel – and i like the way both of them look so in terms of the front that kind of covers it up there. They both have usb type c ports on the bottom, with samsung dex ability. So you can go ahead and talk it up and use it, as you know, kind of like a pc, if you want to which is another really awesome thing on the back. We have the full metallic back, which looks beautiful as well and again. This is one of my favorite things about these samsung tablets. Is that theyve always pretty much felt premium for the last few generations? Sometimes they were built out of plastic and stuff, but these things recently looked beautiful. You also have the stylus support on the back as well, where you can go ahead and leave your stylus on there. You can go ahead and charge. Is the s pen and thats another really cool thing that you have going for both of them? You have micro, sd card slots on both of these tablets as well, and you have a dual camera setup on the corners too. Now again, when youre feeling both these tablets, you are probably not going to tell which one is which they look, almost identical.
The easiest way to kind of tell is, when you look at them on the back, the galaxy tab s7 does have a little bit more of a silver lining to that s. Pen, the galaxy tab s8 has more of a darker lining, so really thats really the biggest thing i could tell for the most part now in terms of all this theyre, both kind of the same thing in terms of the camera department as well. So, on the back, we have a dual camera setup on both the galaxy tab. S7 has that 13 megapixel wide angle lens and then 5 megapixel ultrawide sensor, the samsung galaxy tab s8 has that 13 megapixel wide nickel lens, then 6 megapixel ultrawide sensor now theres. Also, some really big differences on the front as well. The tab seven has an eight megapixel front facing wide angle lens. The tab. S8 has a 12 megapixel ultrawide sensor, now really big differences on the front 4k, its 60 capability on the tab, s8 and only 1080p on the front of the tab at 7.. Right there is a really big difference. Samsung has made probably the biggest improvement, not only in terms of the internals but the camera setup as well. They really made some really big improvements in the camera setup. Now they also added the ability of doing 4k, its 60 on the back of the tab. S8. When the tab s7, we could only do 4k at 30.
, so thats another slight thing to keep in mind. I think both these cameras are great, but you are definitely getting a more worthwhile experience from something like the tab. S8. Then, on the tap s7, i dont really think people are picking up either. One of these you know tablets because of the camera, but if you want the better camera between the two, the tab s8 is definitely the better way to go, and i prefer having a camera like the tab s8 that has the ability of doing 4k 60 on The front of the back then, on the tab: s7 that really cant even do 4k 60 on either of the lenses, but you have the same type of capability on the back. You have the wide and ultra wide lens, but you do have that ultrawide sensor on the front which i love on the tab s8, which definitely looks a little bit better. So in terms of that, that kind of covers it up there now in terms of the software and the longevity theyre, both rocking the same exact software right now for the most part, you know were on one ui and everything, but the tab s8 is definitely going To outlast the tab at 7, when it comes down to it, like i mentioned, even though theres only one number different between these two theres pretty much two generation of devices between these two and two generations of chipsets. So because of that, the tab, seven is probably going to last as long as the galaxy s20 and the tab.
S8 is probably going to last as long as probably the galaxy s22, so thats, probably the best way to put it. And if you guys know anything about how samsungs been increasing their software longevity, the tab s8 is going to last for a much longer period of time than the tap s7. We dont know for 100 fact yet were going to find out as time progresses but thats pretty much. The main thing i can probably sum it up here and ill, probably tell you the tab. S8 is the definitely the better one when it comes down to the software. The tablet 7 is still great, very good tablet. The tab s8 is the better one for sure now hitting on the performance. This is another really really big difference. The tab seven had that qualcomm snapdragon 865 chipset inside of it with six gigs of ram on the base model and then eight gigs of ram on the top two tier models. Now, with the galaxy tab s8, we have that brand new qualcomm snapdragon 8 gen 1 chipset inside of it with 8 gigabytes of ram on the base models and then 12 gigabytes of ram on the top tier model. So we are now getting pretty much 2 gigabytes extra ram for the base model, but we can spec it out up to 4 gigabytes extra than the top tier model of the tab. S7, so youre getting a much better, just chipset and much better performance in general.
On the galaxy tab s8 than the tab s7, but what i will tell you is the tab. S7 was still a very good performing tablet, really anything i did with that specific tablet and handled it perfectly fine. I couldnt really tell you too many times where the tap s7 would, you know, be slow on me, of course, its not the fastest experience of all time, and even with the 120 hertz i feel like it could have done a better job here and there. But i do love the tab s7 and i do think its actually a really good experience, especially with that s pen. You can go ahead and do whatever you want to with it and thats a really cool thing and really cool option that you have on something like the tab. Seven now on the tab. S8, it definitely takes that up a notch. I mean this thing has the best chipset right now: the galaxy tab s8. Pretty much has the same type of performance as the galaxy s22. The galaxy tab s7 has the same performance as the galaxy s20. Again, probably the best way to water it down, and i do think the tab. Seven is still a very good phone, just like the s20 is still a very good phone, but the s22 and the tab s8. With that snapdragon each and one chipset. This is pretty much the future. You know this is whats, you know, snapdragon is kind of focusing in on and they want to go ahead and make it as great of an experience as possible.
So then, no other manufacturers go ahead and start using their own silicon chips because they want. You know to kind of keep up with something like the a series of chipsets from apple. They also want to keep up with the google tensor trips that google just made. So when it comes down to it this device, you know both of them have really good performance inside of them, but the tab s8 from all the gaming that ive done for all the testing that ive done. That is a very good performing tablet and im super happy about the type of performance from that specific machine. So in terms of that that covers it up there now in terms of battery life, they have the same exact battery sizes, 8, 000 milliamp hours, which is perfectly fine. You know thats still a good size battery to have on this thing, and i will tell you just like ive told you before i like having bigger size batteries, but when it comes down to these theyre exactly the same, so theres really not too much to complain About or too much to compare here, theyre, both very good tablets when it comes down to it. But again i like the tab s8 because of the better performance and everything, and that kind of takes me to the end of this video and to be completely honest. I, like both these tablets. If you have the samsung galaxy tab s7, i really wouldnt go for the tab.
S8. You know, i think its a really really good upgrade, but i feel like you might as well wait for the tab s9 and then pretty much go from there. I love the tab s7, though its very, very good tablet, but its quite obvious, which one is the better one here. The samsung galaxy tab s8 is the better tablet in pretty much every single area. It has better performance way, better cameras, much longer software ahead of it too, so youre getting just a better tablet in every single area, really the only thing that its missing is bigger battery, but other than that. Its almost like that perfect upgrade for a lot of people, but if you have the tab, seven like if i had the tab seven, i dont think i would go for the tab. S8. I think its. You know really good upgrade and it might be kind of teasing for me to upgrade at some point, but i think the tab seven is still a very good tablet if the tab s8 was a 10 out of 10 perfect tablet. In my opinion, the tab s7 is probably like a solid 8.5 really the things the biggest thing is missing. Is the software longevity ahead of it its really not going to last as long as the tap s8 other than that? I think i could get away with the slower performance, the less ram here and there, and maybe even the water down camera a little bit.
But the tab s8 is a very good tablet and you know what, if you want to upgrade, go for it. But i would probably keep a tab s7, but the choice is yours.
