How Fast Can You Type On The Galaxy Tab S7 Keyboard?

How Fast Can You Type On The Galaxy Tab S7 Keyboard?

The Samsung Galaxy Tab S7 and Tab S7+ come with a Book Cover with an integrated kickstand, S Pen compartment and keyboard.

While most tablets offer keyboard options, you will be surprised at just how fast you can actually type on the Galaxy Tab S7 keyboard! Take a look…

 

Samsung Galaxy Tab S7 Keyboard : What Is It?

The Samsung Book Cover Keyboard is an accessory for the Samsung Galaxy Tab S7 and Tab S7+ tablets.

It protects the tablet from damage, and comes with an integrated kickstand, S Pen compartment and keyboard.

Its two-piece design transforms your Galaxy Tab S7 or Tab S7+ tablet into a laptop, that quickly turns into a tablet whenever you want.

It is available for both Galaxy Tab S7 models. They only differ in their sizes (prices as of 14 December 2020):

Samsung Galaxy Tab S7 Keyboard : How Fast Can You Type On It?

To showcase how fast you can type on the Book Cover Keyboard, Samsung brought in expert stenographer Jongheon Im.

Stenographers are trained to type as fast as a person speaks, so they need to be very fast!

In this video, Im is asked to transcribe a minute of speech on two regular keyboards, and then on the Galaxy Tab S7+ with the Book Cover Keyboard.

While Im is most comfortable with the special stenography keyboard, she felt that it was more comfortable to type on the Book Cover Keyboard, than an actual laptop keyboard.

In the end, she managed to type at around 700 strokes per minute on the Book Cover Keyboard, compared to 670 strokes on a laptop keyboard.

Frankly, most of us would expect to type faster on a laptop keyboard than a tablet keyboard… but as our review pointed out – the Book Cover Keyboard is really nice to type on, especially with its 26% larger keycaps and 18.3 mm key pitch.

We highly recommend it for anyone who purchases the Galaxy Tab S7 or Galaxy Tab S7+ tablet.

Galaxy Tab S7 Book Cover Keyboard Review : A Must Get!

Find out why the Samsung Book Cover Keyboard is a must-have accessory for the new Galaxy Tab S7+ and Galaxy Tab S7 tablets!

 

Samsung Book Cover Keyboard : Galaxy Tab S7 | Tab S7+

The Samsung Galaxy Tab S7+ and Galaxy Tab S7 are both premium laptops powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 865+.

Many of their key features are similar. The larger Tab S7+ however comes with a larger and better display, with a larger battery.

Here in Malaysia, they both come bundled with an ultra-low latency S Pen, and the Book Cover Keyboard. But in countries where the Samsung Book Cover Keyboard is optional, this is a must-get accessory.

Samsung Book Cover Keyboard for Galaxy Tab S7+ : Unboxing

The Samsung Book Cover Keyboard comes in a separate retail box. Here is our unboxing video.

 

Samsung Book Cover Keyboard : A Must-Have!

The Samsung Book Cover Keyboard uses a two-piece design – a front keyboard cover, and a back cover that doubles as a kickstand.

It transforms your Galaxy Tab S7 or Tab S7+ tablet into a virtual laptop, thanks to its integrated keyboard and touchpad.

The kickstand with its “free stop hinge” lets you freely adjust the angle of the tablet all the way to 165°.

But the downsides with a kickstand design – it takes up more space, and works best on a flat surface.

It is rather heavy at 502 grams, but gives you not just a keyboard but a large trackpad as well. In fact, its trackpad is much larger than the trackpad from the Galaxy Tab S6‘s Book Cover Keyboard.

It also has 26% larger keycaps than the Tab S6 version, with a 18.3 mm key pitch. However, its odd-shaped Enter key will get some getting used to.

The Book Cover Keyboard also has an S Pen compartment which nicely fits over its dock, ensuring that you will never lose it.

This compartment is cleverly locked magnetically, and flips open when you need to take out the S Pen, or put it back.

The back cover is thick enough to properly protect the Galaxy Tab S7 and Galaxy Tab S7+’s camera bump.

But that’s really not an issue because the S Pen compartment bulge conveniently keeps the camera bump off any surface you place it on.

Logitech CREATE & Focus Cases Designed With Apple

Jan. 15, 2016 Today Logitech (SIX: LOGN) (NASDAQ: LOGI) unveiled its first accessories designed in collaboration with Apple to perfectly complement the aesthetics and features of the new iPad Pro™ and iPad Mini 4: the Logitech CREATE Backlit Keyboard Case with Smart Connector and the Logitech Focus Flexible Protective Case for iPad Mini 4. The Logitech CREATE Keyboard Case is the first third-party keyboard on the market to leverage Apple’s new Smart Connector™, eliminating the need to power on, connect or charge the keyboard.

“The iPad Pro coupled with iOS 9 opens new ways to create, work and play on the tablet,” said KP Sim, Logitech Country Manager of Malaysia, Philippines and Brunei. “With this in mind, we worked closely with Apple to design the Logitech CREATE and Logitech Focus to unleash even more possibilities. This has resulted in two functional yet beautiful cases, and the best iPad keyboards we’ve ever created. From compatibility with the Apple Smart Connector to the color and finish of the keyboard, every detail was meticulously crafted to perfectly complement the iPad Pro and the iPad Mini 4.”

The Logitech CREATE Backlit Keyboard Case with Smart Connector

Logitech CREATE offers thin and light front and back protection, and the tightly-woven premium fabric resists accidental bumps, scratches and spills. The Logitech CREATE Backlit Keyboard Case is designed to work exclusively with Apple’s new Smart Connector for seamless communication between the iPad Pro and the keyboard.

Through leveraging the Smart Connector, the Logitech CREATE keyboard automatically powers on and securely connects with the iPad Pro when placed in the typing position – no Bluetooth® pairing needed.

The case provides two viewing angles, so you can make the most of the iPad Pro’s big, beautiful screen whether you’re posting an update, watching videos, or using the Apple Pencil to take notes. The Logitech CREATE Backlit Keyboard Case is available for a suggested retail price of MYR 699 (~US$163) inclusive of GST.

 

The Logitech Focus Flexible Protective Case for iPad Mini 4

The Logitech Focus Flexible Protective Case offers full protection for the iPad Mini 4 and also serves as a stand with multiple viewing angles. The case enables users to adjust the iPad into any angle within a 50-degree range.
