Design

1.weight

420g

We consider a lower weight better because lighter devices are more comfortable to carry. A lower weight is also an advantage for home appliances, as it makes transportation easier, and for many other types of products.
2.thickness

5.7mm

We consider a thinner chassis better because it makes the product more compact and portable. Thinness is a feature highlighted by many manufacturers of mobile devices, but it is essential for a wide range of products.
3.Stylus included
Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 LTE
A stylus is a pen-like accessory that allows you to interact with the touchscreen with greater precision, and is particularly useful for drawing and writing.
4.height

159.5mm

The height represents the vertical dimension of the product. We consider a smaller height better because it assures easy maneuverability.
5.is dustproof and water-resistant
Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 LTE
The device is dustproof and water-resistant. Water-resistant devices can resist the penetration of water, such as powerful water jets, but not being submerged into water.
6.width

244.5mm

The width represents the horizontal dimension of the product. We consider a smaller width better because it assures easy maneuverability.

Display

1.resolution

2560 x 1600px

Resolution is an essential indicator of a screen's image quality, representing the maximum amount of pixels that can be shown on the screen. The resolution is given as a compound value, comprised of horizontal and vertical pixels.
2.pixel density

287ppi

Pixel density is a measurement of a screen's resolution, expressed as the number of pixels per inch (PPI) on the screen. A higher pixel density translates into more clarity and sharpness for the images rendered on the screen, thus improving the quality of the viewing experience.
3.screen size

10.5"

The bigger the screen size is, the better the user experience.
4.has branded damage-resistant glass
Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 LTE
Damage-resistant glass (such as Corning Gorilla Glass or Asahi Dragontrail Glass) is thin, lightweight, and can withstand high levels of force.
5.has an IPS screen
Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 LTE
IPS (In-Plane Switching) is a technology used for LCDs. It was designed to overcome the main limitations of conventional twisted nematic TFT displays: limited viewing angles and low-quality color reproduction. PLS (Plane-to-Line Switching) is a type of IPS screen developed by Samsung, with increased brightness and lower production costs.
6.LCD display with 3 subpixels per pixels
Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 LTE
The device has an LCD display with 3 subpixels per pixel, resulting in sharp and crisp images. Pixels in some displays (like AMOLED) share one subpixel to preserve space. This can result in a less crisp, slightly blurred image.

Performance

1.CPU speed

1 x 2.84GHz & 3 x 2.42GHz & 4 x 1.8GHz (Qualcomm Snapdragon 855)

The CPU speed indicates how many processing cycles per second can be executed by a CPU, considering all of its cores (processing units). It is calculated by adding the clock rates of each core or, in the case of multi-core processors employing different microarchitectures, of each group of cores.
2.RAM

8GB

Random-access memory (RAM) is a form of volatile memory used to store working data and machine code currently in use. It is a quick-access, temporary virtual storage that can be read and changed in any order, thus enabling fast data processing.
3.has an external memory slot
Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 LTE
The device has a standard memory slot (such as an SD or micro SD card slot) that enables you to extend the built-in internal storage with affordable memory modules, or easily retrieve data, such as photographs, from the memory card.
4.internal storage

256GB

The internal storage, also called read-only memory (ROM), refers to the built-in storage space available in a device for system data, apps, and user-generated data. With a large amount of internal storage, you can save more files and apps on your device.
5.Supports 64-bit
Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 LTE (Qualcomm Snapdragon 855)
A 32-bit operating system can only support up to 4GB of RAM. 64-bit allows more than 4GB, giving increased performance. It also allows you to run 64-bit apps.
6.Has integrated LTE
Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 LTE (Qualcomm Snapdragon 855)
The system on a chip (SoC) has an integrated LTE cellular chip. LTE is capable of downloading at faster speeds than older, 3G technology.

Cameras

1.megapixels (main camera)

13MP & 5MP

The number of megapixels determines the resolution of the images captured with the main camera. A higher megapixel count means that the camera is capable of capturing more details. However, the megapixel count is not the only important element determining the quality of an image.
2.megapixels (front camera)

8MP

The number of megapixels determines the resolution of the images captured with the front camera. A higher megapixel count means that the front camera is capable of capturing more details, an essential factor for taking high-resolution selfies.
3.has a flash
Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 LTE
A flash is good for low-light environments, and can sometimes be used as flashlight.
4.has a built-in HDR mode
Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 LTE
