In July, Samsung introduced its newest tablet product, the 14.6-inch Galaxy Tab S9 Ultra. This is Samsung’s best and biggest tablet to date, so we wanted to see it compare to the 12.9-inch iPad Pro.

The 14.6-inch Tab S9 Ultra is significantly larger than the “iPad Pro” and features an impressive OLED display with deep blacks and rich colours. Apple is using mini LED for its latest ‌iPad Pro‌ and there are rumors that it will switch to OLED, but Apple has yet to achieve that.

It has an under-display fingerprint sensor powered by face recognition (Samsung’s facial recognition still can’t compare to Face ID) and a horizontal front camera, so you can use the front camera in landscape orientation unlike the ‌iPad Pro‌. . There’s no Apple Pencil, but Samsung’s tablets use the S-Pen, which is feature-rich and comparable to the “Apple Pencil” (also included in the price). The latency is about the same, and there is a convenient charging point for it on the back of the tablet.

The battery lasts for about eight hours and supports a microSD card for storage, which is not the case with any Apple product. IP68 is water and dust resistant, which is a higher entry rating than iPads.

There are some notable annoyances, like the $350 keyboard cover that’s heavy, unavailable to tour, and has a wobbly, hard-to-use trackpad. The speakers aren’t quite as good as those on the ‌iPad Pro‌, and in general, Android on a tablet doesn’t have the fluency or usability of iPadOS on an iPad.

What do you think of the Galaxy Tab S9 Ultra? Let us know in the comments below.
