I was sent the new Galaxy Tab S7+ to use. Within that bag, I realized that I was also sent the Book Cover Keyboard accessory. Then I realized that the tablet actually comes with the book cover keyboard in the box – and that’s an RM999 accessory which is now included in the box for you for free.

So, I am going to review the Galaxy Tab S7+ with everything that you’ll get in your packaging too.

Let’s first talk about the tablet itself. It’s actually very thin and has a signature Samsung tablet feel to it. Very thin, sleek design while also being very sturdy – no surprises there.
There are a total of 4 speakers – two on each side – and they can get really loud and sounds great too. There is no audio jack, however.

Also please don’t put an under-display fingerprint scanner on a tablet. It’s cumbersome. Make it like the Z Fold2 with that side-mounted fingerprint scanner instead.

The screen is – not gonna lie – big and beautiful. At 12.4-inches with 2800×1752 pixels in resolution, this is essentially a 2K+ resolution and it can go up to 120Hz, with support of HDR10+.

This display is great for watching videos and also got gaming as well. We played a lot of games using this tablet – including the new Genshin Impact.

I have complained that tablets having small bezels because I can’t grab them without touching the screen – but the GalaxyTab S7+ is an exception. Here comes the Book Cover Keyboard accessories.

The back piece attaches magnetically – a humongous piece of magnet, actually, and provides a nook for the S Pen to sit in, so it can be charged wirelessly by the tablet and also protected from damages or potentially falling off the tablet.

And there’s the kickstand – I absolutely love the kickstand, honestly. It can be used at a lot of different angles and it’s excellent! But since it’s using a kickstand design, it has all of the inherent flaws too – like not being able to use the Galaxy Tab S7+ like a laptop on the lap.

Then comes the front piece. It snaps on magnetically at the bottom and powered by pogo pins. It has a keyboard and a trackpad. Both the keyboard and trackpad are very reminiscent of a laptop. The keyboard keys feel great, and the layout is easy to adapt to. The FN keys do all the functions as expected from a laptop.

The trackpad works fine – even multi-finger swiping works just like a Windows or a Mac. Unfortunately, the trackpad also carried the inherently bad palm rejection from Windows laptops.

Despite the Galaxy Tab S7+ being an Android tablet, I have been using the Galaxy Tab S7+ like a laptop in DeX mode. Surprisingly, even keyboard shortcuts like show desktop, Winkey+Arrow keys for window snapping – they all work, which I absolutely love.
And RAM management is also excellent. This tablet only has 6GB RAM, but I never use more than 4.5GB.

And since this front part flops around, I flipped it back to give a platform for the kickstand to stand on – so that I can use the device on my lap stably. Fortunately, there’s a sensor that turns the keyboard off after the keyboard has been flipped to a certain angle.

One complaint I have here is that when the Book Cover Keyboard is closed entirely, it’s very difficult to open it up again. There is a discrepancy between how the lips of the two parts of this Book Cover Keyboard are made, which I think it’s simpler to show you than to explain it. To open the S Pen compartment, it’s easy. To open up the keyboard, it’s difficult.

Speaking of the S Pen, it’s super responsive with the latest technology just like the Galaxy Note20 Ultra as it brought the latency down to 9ms. The tip is a different story. It’s not the same as the Galaxy Note20 Ultra’s single soft-ish material for the tip, but the Galaxy Tab S7+’s S Pen has this… two different material situation going on. Not sure why, but this particular S Pen feels softer than the Note20 Ultra’s.

And finally, the battery life. With such a beautiful display with high resolution and high refresh rate, there’s a big 10,090mAh battery too. It lasts for a day of use as a laptop and that’s not up to my expectation. Though in fairness, like a laptop – this Galaxy Tab S7+ has great battery life, actually.

For RM4,599 – it’s a hefty price for a tablet – but a very nice tablet at that. It can do whatever you want it to – work, play, watch movies, listen to music, all of those things. This device can do it all – just that the price is a little too steep.
