Check Out Other Android Tablets
Before you commit to the Galaxy Tab S4 you'll want to go hands-on with Samsung's other tablets which include the Samsung Galaxy Tab S3, the Samsung Galaxy Book, and the Galaxy TabPro S.
Samsung recently updated the Galaxy Tab S3 with Android 8.0 Oreo and the device is a lot cheaper than it was when launched last year. Far cheaper than the Galaxy Tab S4's $650 price point.
You'll want to do more than just check out the spec sheets online. Head down to your local retailer or get in touch with a friend that owns one and go hands-on. This will help you get familiar with their design, hardware, and software features.
