Samsung Galaxy Tab S8 review: in pictures

Samsung's new Galaxy Tab S8 builds upon the S7 with a new proecessor, better cameras, and improved S Pen latency. If you can get a good trade-in deal then you may want to consider an upgrade or if you are looking for the smallest Samsung tablet then the S8 is the one to consider.
