Samsung Galaxy Tab S7+ review: A steep price for tablet dominance

Samsung Galaxy Tab S7+ review: A steep price for tablet dominance

Do tablets still fit into our vision of the future? Star Trek may have its ubiquitous PADDs, but here in the 21st century, tablet sales have been declining at a pretty steady clip since 2013. Even as some of that interest fades, we're seeing the release of some of the most impressive tablets ever made. Apple turned heads last month with its new iPad Air design, while Lenovo's got its crazy folding-screen laptop. In the Android camp, Samsung introduced the Galaxy Tab S7 series this summer, and you'd be hard-pressed to argue that these aren't the best Android tablets anyone's produced.

Spotify optimizes its interface for Android tablets and Chromebooks

Spotify optimizes its interface for Android tablets and Chromebooks

There's a lot that Spotify can improve in its app's experience, but the most glaring issue for anyone using a larger-screened Android device was the lack of any interface optimization. The phone UI simply stretched to fill the screen, with tiny touch targets and no special consideration given to the larger screen estate. That's changed now as Spotify began rolling out a new tablet-optimized design on Android.

Samsung's Galaxy Tab S7 could ditch AMOLED in favor of LCD

At next week's Galaxy Unpacked 2020 event, Samsung is expected to take the wraps off a total of five devices, which includes its new flagship tablet range. The Galaxy Tab S7 for 2020 is rumored to be accompanied by a bigger Plus model, and we’ve already heard a lot about the two. But the latest WinFuture report gives away nearly everything about the two slates. What’s most surprising here is that Samsung looks set to downgrade the standard model’s screen by using LCD technology instead of keeping the AMOLED from last year.

The 15 best tablet-optimized apps for Android

The 15 best tablet-optimized apps for Android

Google hasn't had much of an interest in Android tablets since the days of the Motorola XOOM and Android Honeycomb. As a result, most of the company's apps aren't designed with tablets in mind, and third-party applications have largely followed suit. Sure, Android tablets can technically run all Android apps, but many of them have stretched-out layouts that were intended for 6-inch screens. Some even force a portrait orientation (Google Tasks, I'm looking at you).

It can be hard to find applications with well-designed tablet interfaces, especially when the Play Store's only criteria for the "Designed for tablets" label is developers adding a large screenshot to the app listing.
