Pa­per Gar­den

This is Sam­sung’s an­swer to News­stand, a be­spoke dig­i­tal magazine hub just for Tab S own­ers to start with, but even­tu­ally rolling out to all Galaxy tabs. You’ll soon be able to get all your favourite mag­a­zines there, in­clud­ing Aus­tralianT3.

Side Sync

Want to check your phone, but it’s up­stairs charg­ing? This slick con­nected app mir­rors your hand­set’s screen on your Tab S, where you can even an­swer calls or send texts. It’s a smart idea, but it’s not yet re­li­ably smooth and can of­ten stut­ter to a stop.

Kids’ mode

Who can re­sist a crocodile with a saw for a snout? Not us. Yet the way the Tab S can limit what your kids see is what re­ally ap­peals. Show­ing up as it’s own app on your Home screen, the walled gar­den is sim­ple to set up, with cus­tomi­sa­tion to suit all dra­co­nian lev­els.
