Samsung Galaxy Tab S7 FE Review : A Great Value Buy!

Samsung Galaxy Tab S7 FE Key Features!

Samsung Galaxy Tab S7 FE : Hands-On + Key Features!

The Samsung Galaxy Tab S7 FE is a more affordable Fan Edition of the excellent but pricey Samsung Galaxy Tab S7+ that we reviewed earlier.

12.4-inch Display

The Samsung Galaxy Tab S7 FE boasts a 12.4-inch TFT display, which looks massive especially if you are upgrading from smaller tablets like the Apple iPad.

This is not an AMOLED display, but it is bright and looks sharp thanks to the high resolution of 2560 x 1600 pixels.

Performance + Storage

The Samsung Galaxy Tab S7 FE is built around the Qualcomm Snapdragon 778G mobile platform, which offers :

  • a Kryo 670 Prime (A78-based) core running at 2.4 GHz,
  • three Kryo 670 Gold (A78-based) cores running at 2.2 GHz,
  • four Kryo 670 Silver (A55-based) cores running at 1.8 GHz
  • Adreno 642L GPU running at 490 MHz

Qualcomm Snapdragon 778G is a new mid-range mobile SoC built on the 6 nm process, which should offer preppy performance without the higher power consumption of flagship mobile SoC.

RAM + Storage

The Samsung Galaxy Tab S7 FE comes with two memory and storage options :

  • 4 GB of RAM + 64 GB of internal storage
  • 6 GB of memory + 128 GB of internal storage

The good news is that it comes with a microSD card tray that supports up to 1 TB of additional storage.

Front + Rear Cameras

In the front, it has  a 5 MP fixed focus camera, that is capable of taking photos with a 2576 x 1932 pixel resolution, and Full HD 1080p video at 30 fps.

This front camera is decent but unexceptional. Don’t expect to dazzle your clients on Zoom!

At the back, it has an 8 MP camera that is capable of taking photos with the resolution of 3264 x 2448 pixels.

Despite the higher resolution, it is only capable of recording 1080p video at 30 fps. It does, however, supports electronic image stabilisation (EIS).

You should note that this camera lacks an LED light. The hole you see in the camera bump conceals a microphone.


There are only two buttons on the Galaxy Tab S7 FE – the Volume control buttons and the Power button.

They are located on the upper right side when held vertically, and left side of the top when held horizontally.

As with Samsung smartphones, double-pressing the Power button activates the Camera app, allowing you to quickly take photos or videos.

Only One Port

The Samsung Galaxy Tab S7 FE comes with a USB Type C port, which supports USB 3.2 Gen 1 connectivity.

It does not come with a 3.5 mm audio jack, or a USB-C to 3.5 mm adapter in the box.

Dual AKG Speakers

Like its premium brother – the Galaxy Tab S7+, the Galaxy Tab S7 FE has AKG-tuned speakers with Dolby Atmos support.

The only difference is the cheaper FE (Fan Edition) has just two speakers, while the Tab S7+ has four.

Battery + Charging

Powering all that is a massive 10,090 mAh lithium-ion polymer battery, which supports 45 watt fast wired charging.

When used with a 45 watt charger, Samsung says it will fully recharge in just 90 minutes!

This is a pretty small battery, and rather slow charging speeds. I’m currently testing its battery life and will share with you the results shortly.

Unfortunately, Samsung only provided a standard 15 watt fast charger in the box. In the next page, I will show you just how long it takes to fully recharge its battery on just 15 watts…
