We’re just going to leave that there so you can look at it for a few minutes. Done? Okay, now we can move on. Samsung’s Galaxy Tab S T805 is the best 10.1-inch tablet released by the South Korean company to date, matched closely by the other members of the Galaxy Tab S lineup.

Why do we say that? Well, Samsung’s Super AMOLED screen on this device alone is worth the price of admission, being a monstrous 2560 x 1600 resolution panel that makes other tablets look as though they’re playing catch-up. That’s because they are, of course, but we don’t need to tell them that.

The other hardware featured in this tablet also makes the grade, with the Snapdragon 800 processor, a mobile chip that runs at 2.3GHz, being available in some models.

This particular version however, which is in the South African market, makes use of Samsung’s own Exynos 5420 octa-core chip. It’s a combination of a quad-core Cortex-A15 (which runs at 1.9GHz) and a quad-core Cortex-A7 (which runs at 1.3GHz) for a total of eight cores and absolutely no slowdown – whatever you happen to be using this super-tablet for.

After this, the other features of the Galaxy Tab S T805 seem almost unimpressive but they’re not. There’s a full 3GB of system memory, 32GB of storage right out of the box (with the option to add a further 128GB using a microSD card), all of which is being run on Android 4.4.2 and Samsung’s own UI. Splendid.

Unusually for a tablet (but this isn’t just any tablet) there’s a full 8MP rear camera so you’ll finally be able to secure acceptable images from your handheld computing device and there’s a 2.1MP front-facer for video chat.

Samsung have also built in their fingerprint sensor for the Galaxy Tab S T805 so you can have biometric access for your logins and there are a few more uses besides.

Like we said earlier. Wow. Just… Wow.
