Samsung Galaxy Tab S8 - the key differences

There are three versions in the Samsung Galaxy Tab S8 lineup. They are all quite similar when it comes to raw power as the same processor is at the core, but there are some small differences that improve performance the more you spend. Outside of that, the biggest differences come down to screen size, display quality and storage.

The Samsung Galaxy Tab S8 may be the standard choice when it comes to this range of tablets but it's far from basic. It features an 11-inch, 2560 x 1600 resolution display that also sports a high refresh rate of up to 120Hz, a solid and comprehensive camera array for photos and video calls, plus in-built storage of up to 256GB (extendable up to 1TB with a microSD card). It's a top-quality tablet that is fine for general everyday use and delivers smooth performance during demanding tasks such as gaming.

Sitting right in the middle is the Samsung Galaxy Tab S8 Plus. It's a fairly considerable jump in price but that additional cost is worth considering in order to get some useful upgrades. The main bonus is the slightly larger and higher-resolution 12.4-inch display. There isn't a dramatic increase in picture quality based on our testing, but the increased size is definitely appreciated for tasks that benefit from a larger display area. There's also an extra 2GB of RAM, which brings a small but welcome performance boost, while the exact same storage options of 128GB or 256GB are available.

Lastly, there's the Samsung Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra, which boasts a much larger 14.6-inch screen. Storage options are available all the way up to 512GB, while there's also an option to increase the RAM to 12GB or 16GB – should you find a reason to need the performance boost. It is, however, a very large, weighty and expensive bit of kit. For the everyday user, this device is likely going to be overkill for general tasks such as browsing, media streaming and gaming. The intended audience of the S8 Ultra is definitely creatives and professionals who need a bigger second screen – and it has the price to match those demands.
