Published

on

Samsung Electronics has announced its new Galaxy Tab S8 series, the Galaxy Tab S8, and S8+, and the first-ever Tab S8 Ultra tablet. Each Galaxy Tab S8 offers an improved video conferencing experience with ultra-wide front cameras, a three-microphone setup, and intelligent auto-framing technology for a truly professional video call experience. It offers revolutionary multitasking capabilities with enhanced Multi-active Windows and Samsung DeX, safe and easy file sharing with password-protected Quick Share, and powerful productivity with the new, super-fast 4nm processor and a smoother than ever S Pen in the box.

All this is packed into the thinnest and toughest Armor Aluminum body for greater portability, and to enhance your mobile experience further, the Galaxy Tab S8 series works hand-in-hand with your full ecosystem of Galaxy devices, with features like Second Screen and Buds Auto Switch. “As we rely more on videos to stay connected and entertained, we know that a tablet’s most compelling feature is its large screen and portability,” said TM Roh, President & Head of MX Business at Samsung Electronics. “We built on years of innovation in mobile experiences to refine the Galaxy Tab S8 series, and to push the boundaries of what’s possible on a tablet with the first Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra.”

The Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra offers a premium tablet experience unlike any Galaxy Tab before. With its expansive 14.6-inch Super AMOLED display and 120Hz refresh rate, it also boasts Galaxy Tab’s thinnest ever bezels at 6.3mm for a maximum screen-to-body ratio for a truly immersive experience. Its gorgeous display is housed in the thinnest, lightest, but strongest body yet, protected by an Armor Aluminum frame that is over 30% more scratch-resistant and 40% less prone to bending than Galaxy Tab S7. For the most premium technology that you can take just about anywhere, the Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra is built to fully immerse you in every video, movie, game, and more, the on-the-move.

Equipped with powerful dual 12MP front cameras, the Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra also transforms your video call experience with professional 4K video quality. Advanced hardware meets software with Samsung’s auto-framing technology that automatically keeps you in focus during a call, while also zooming in or out to include new participants as they join you. You’ll also sound as clear as you look, thanks to three precision microphones that use advanced noise reduction technology to prevent unwanted background chatter. Quad Speakers with Dolby Atmos, found on all three Galaxy Tab S8 models, ensure that everything sounds incredible, with lifelike detail and clarity.

Whether you want to explore your artistic side, be immersed in dynamic, lag-free gaming, or simply multitask with ease, the Galaxy Tab S8 series is the tablet you need for unbeatable performance. Equipped with the fastest processor ever in a Galaxy Tab – a 4nm chip – Galaxy Tab S8 and S8+ also provide ample RAM and storage for any task. If you need more, Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra packs in up to 16 GB of RAM and up to 512 GB of storage, and all three models offer expandable storage by up to 1 TB with an optional microSD card.

The Galaxy Tab S8 series is also the first Samsung tablet to support Wi-Fi 6E, which provides up to double the bandwidth and maximum speed of Wi-Fi 6, and with optimized network quality, you don’t have to stress about weak connections. Alternatively, share content in a flash with hyperfast and secure Galaxy 5G – whether it’s for dialing into class remotely or clearing out your inbox while commuting, optimized network quality can alleviate some of the stress of weak connections.

On the Galaxy Tab S8 series, you’re always ready for action, fueled by an intelligent all-day battery that supports hours of video playback when you’re in the middle of a movie marathon. It supports 45W super-fast charging that can get you back to 100% in 80 minutes. If your other devices need a power boost on the go, simply connect your Galaxy Tab S8 to a Galaxy S22 smartphone with a USB-C cable, and the tablet’s incredible fast-charging battery can double as a portable charger.

The Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra and S8+ both come with a new and improved S Pen that uses a prediction algorithm for ultra-low latency — delivering an incredible writing experience that mimics gliding a pen across paper. And for the first time ever, Samsung’s exclusive partnership with Clip Studio Paint can turn your smartphone into a digital color palette, your S Pen into a paintbrush, and Galaxy Tab S8’s expansive screen into your canvas. Customize tools and choose brush options, and even select vivid real-world colors from pictures taken on your synced phone.

Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra’s new 4K recording capabilities now allow you to capture crisp, eye-catching videos with both the rear camera and ultra-wide front camera. Content creators and streamers can capture online tutorials and gameplay effortlessly, using customizable Selfie Videos that are now embedded within Samsung’s Screen Recorder. With LumaFusion’s premier editing tool coming soon to Galaxy, you will soon be able to use your Galaxy Tab S8 and S Pen to make precise edits to 4K videos.

Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra’s expansive screen also makes it easy for you to split the screen into multiple, resizable windows, so you can multitask without having to toggle between apps. Get inspired, search websites, and annotate presentation slides — all in one view. Tablets also play an important role in keeping you connected to others. Samsung has partnered with Google for even better video calling and live sharing experiences through Google Duo, so you can co-watch videos with your friends on YouTube, share your browser to help plan your next meetup, or develop creative ideas using Jamboard, Google’s interactive whiteboard.

When inspiration strikes on the go, use the S Pen to jot down reminders in a new and improved Samsung Notes app on the Galaxy Tab S8 series and pull them up on your smartphone later for easy reference. And with the Galaxy Tab S8 series and Galaxy S22 Ultra, Quick Share enables you to share photos, videos, and files between devices twice as fast as before. Thanks to Auto Switch, your Galaxy Buds will automatically pair from your Galaxy Tab S8 to your Galaxy S22, so users can move between devices without missing a beat. And for the first time, Samsung Health is available on Galaxy tablets so you can browse fitness videos for workout content and keep track of your health and fitness data from your Galaxy Watch on a larger screen.

You can also turn Galaxy Tab S8 into a portable second monitor with touchscreen capabilities for Galaxy PCs for side-by-side multitasking. And enhancements to Samsung DeX – a convenient desktop experience that takes the Galaxy Tab S8 from tablet mode to desktop mode – now allows transparent app windows and DeX mirroring for when you want to share your tablet’s screen on an external display.

The Galaxy Tab S8 Series is also protected by Samsung’s industry-leading Knox Vault platform, which encrypts personal data and keeps stored files and information isolated from the device’s main operating system to safeguard it from attacks. All members of the lineup sport an intuitive fingerprint scanner that enables single-touch device unlocking. The Galaxy Tab S8 series will be supported by up to four generations of Android OS upgrades and 5 years of security updates. Now millions of Galaxy users can increase the lifecycle of their devices even further with the most up-to-date security, productivity, and other exciting new features, as Samsung continues to scale this effort across our product line-up and your Galaxy ecosystem.

The Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra comes in bold and timeless Graphite, and Galaxy Tab S8 and S8+ come in three sophisticated shades — Graphite, Silver, and Pink Gold. Samsung is also releasing a new Galaxy Tab S8 UltraBook Cover Keyboard that takes the Ultra’s functionality even further with wider, backlit keycaps, customizable shortcut settings, and adjustable standing angles. The Book Cover Keyboard features premium, antimicrobial polyurethane leather and a glass-coated touchpad that enables smooth and responsive typing. Plus, Wireless Keyboard Share can link your connected keyboard to a Galaxy smartphone for easy typing across devices.

Marshall MA21 Electric Scooter Review: Convenience on Two Wheels

Published

on

The Marshall MA21 electric scooter carves a niche in the electric scooter market with its focus on portability and ease of use. In this review, let’s deep dive into the MA21’s features, performance, and overall value proposition to help you decide if it’s the right electric scooter for your needs.

First Impressions
Right out of the box, the MA21 strikes you with its compact size. Weighing in at just over 8kg, it’s incredibly lightweight, thanks to its aluminium frame. This makes carrying it on public transport, storing it under your desk, or throwing it in the trunk of your car a breeze. Folding the scooter is a one-step process, making it even more convenient for on-the-go situations.

Performance
The MA21 is equipped with a 24V/200W motor, which is suitable for flat terrains and gentle inclines up to 15 degrees. The MA21 can also support a maximum load of 90 kg. While it won’t win any speed races, it offers a comfortable cruising speed of 23km/hr, perfect for zipping around town or navigating a college campus.

The MA21 also offers a range of 12-15km, when fully charged. And it takes around 3 hours to charge the electric scooter from 0% to 100%. However, strong winds or steeper inclines can affect performance.

Ride Quality
Despite the solid 6-inch wheels, the MA21 offers a surprisingly smooth ride. The spring suspension in the front helps absorb bumps and cracks on paved surfaces. However, it’s important to manage your expectations – for rougher terrain, a scooter with pneumatic tires would be a better choice.

Safety Features
The MA21 comes equipped with a basic set of safety features. The front wheel features an electronic brake, while the rear wheel has a mechanical foot brake. These brakes provide adequate stopping power for the scooter’s speed. Headlights and a taillight ensure visibility in low-light conditions.

Verdict
The Marshall MA21 might not be the most feature-rich electric scooter on the market, but it excels in portability and ease of use. It’s a perfect choice for riders who prioritise a lightweight, convenient, and affordable way to navigate short distances in urban environments.

If you require a scooter for longer distances, or rough terrains, or crave additional features such as a display, you might want to consider alternatives that better suit your needs. However, if you’re looking for a no-frills, convenient, and fun way to get around for short commutes, leisure rides, or navigating a college campus, the Marshall MA21 is a strong contender.

Price: AED 1199
