10 Reasons The Galaxy Tab S Is Samsung's Best Tablet Yet

Look And Feel

The 8.4-inch Galaxy Tab S felt most comfortable when held in landscape mode using two hands. This orientation puts the power and volume controls at the top, and Home, Back and Recent keys under the right thumb. With the same digit, a swipe in from the right edge will invoke the Multi Windows Menu. The GTS' capacitive controls follow Samsung's new (and improved) format, with Recent replacing Menu at left, Home/fingerprint scanner (which is a Synaptics Natural ID capacitive sensor) in the middle and the Back key at right. Long-pressing the recent key invokes the Menu function, and long-pressing the Home key now links to Google Now.
