If you’ve got a Samsung Galaxy Tab, Tab S or Tab A, you’ll need this ultimate tips guide.
The Samsung Galaxy Tab range is by far the best selling Android tablet series in the world, so odds are if you’re reading this and you’ve got a tablet, it will probably be a Galaxy Tab.
One of the reasons why it sells so well, apart from the Samsung name of course, is there there are so many things you can do on it, such as sync it with your Android phone, view two apps at the same time and enjoy over 13 million apps.
If this all sounds like a lot to get your head around then you’re in luck as we’ve put together a great guide that shows you how to do everything on a Galaxy Tab, including the recently released Galaxy Tab A.
Samsung’s flagship tablet to have an incredible screen and slimline body
Samsung has announced the Galaxy Tab S2 as its latest high-spec tablet. The Tab S2 will launch worldwide in August and come with either an 8-inch or 9.7-inch screen. Both screens will run an incredible 2048×1536 Super AMOLED screen that will allow 94 per cent of natural colour tones to be seen. Its predecessor, the Tab S, had a glorious screen as well so we are expecting big things in terms of visuals from the Tab S2.
It is thinner than its bigger brother at just 5.6mm and the 9.7-inch option will weigh a mere 389g, making it both thinner and lighter than the iPad Air 2.
The 9.7-incher is powered by a 5,870mAh battery, the 8-incher uses a 4,000mAh battery and both run an octa-core Exynos 7 processor that combines a quad-core A57 1.9GHz processor and a quad-core A53 1.3GHz processor, so it should have some power behind it.

The camera is one of the best features of the Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge – take better pictures with these expert tips
Samsung has made a huge leap forward in its camera technology with the snappers in the front and back of the Galaxy S6 and S6 edge. Therefore, we’ve decided to show you how to really get the most out of these pieces of kit.
Chinese technology firm Xiaomi has shipped more wearables than Samsung, Jawbone and Garmin put together.
Despite only launching its first wearable device, the Mi Band, in July 2014, Xiaomi has rocketed to second place in the wearable technology market with a 24.6 per cent share of total shipments. This may be due to its low price tag but is still a startling return on less than 12 months of trading.
Fitbit is still a comfortable market leader with a 34.2 per cent share of the market but Garmin is a distant third with just 6.1 per cent, followed by Samsung with 5.3 per cent. However, as Fitbit doesn’t use Android Wear in its devices, Xiaomi is by the the biggest seller of devices running on that operating system.
Xiaomi’s meteoric rise has cut into the market share of all the top five, rounded off by Jawbone, cutting Fitbit’s market share by over 10 per cent. It remains to be seen if Xiaomi can continue this assault on the wearable technology market but, although it must be noted that this data doesn’t include the Apple Watch, this is a truly astonishing result for the company that only trades in the Far East.
Samsung has said that their 2017 phones will be thinner and faster charging due to advancements in camera and battery technology.
The South Korean mobile giant has said that its revolutionary RWB camera technology can produce the same photographic results as the iPhone 6 with microns two-thirds the size. This means that the camera module can be even thinner so it no longer protrudes from the back of the handset.
Another stumbling block to thinner phones is the battery. Modern smartphones require big and powerful batteries to fuel high-resolution screens, games and several hours per day of usage.
However, this comes at a cost and this cost is size. Samsung dropped the size of the battery in the S6 to achieve a thinner product but hopes to be able to reverse this by 2017. This will be achieved by increasing the energy density held in the battery from 700wh/l to 780wh/l, packing more power into the same area and delivering a better, thinner product.
