Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 Lite Review

Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 Lite features a large TFT LCD, 10.4-inch screen size, and a 2000 x 1200 pixels resolution.

The 60 Hz screen response rate is fast enough for simple games but not as good as more expensive brands such as the Apple iPad Pro with 120 Hz.

Although the screen is crisp and clear, the TFT LCD screen type is not as good as the IPS LCD options.

The Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 Lite features a landscape orientation with a 16:9 aspect ratio, making it ideal for streaming videos.

Internal speakers are decent and will allow an immersive sound experience. Unfortunately, it does not come with a 3.5 mm audio jack for connecting to your headphones.

If you need a tablet for drawing that is compatible with the Samsung S Pen, this is the one for you. You will get a free S Pen on purchase.

Processing Power

The Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 Lite comes with a powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon 720G processor and 4 to 8 GB of RAM.

This tablet will run complex tasks with minimal lag and even allow multitasking. It comes with an older Android 12 but is upgradable to the latest Android 13 operating system.

For file saving, you will have 64 GB and 128 GB of storage options to save your files. The storage space can be upgraded using an external MicroSD card up to 1 TB.

Portability

The Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 Lite features a compact build with a 244.5 x 154.3 x 7 mm overall size and a weight of 465 g. These, together with a 10-hour battery life, make it easily portable.

Tablet cameras are not the best, with a 5 MP front camera and an 8 MP rear camera. These cameras are okay, but I feel they could have made them better by increasing the resolution.
