AMOLED display also helps users to experience clear pictures, even under bright sunlight. Adaptive display also ensures that the user’s visual experience is smoothly adjusted according to the environment.

Camera, OS & User Experience: -

The Galaxy Tab S also has a powerful camera under its repertoire. With 8MP front camera, users can easily capture vivid images, while HD recording is also available.
