There are tons of Android tablets out there, but few are equipped to take on the iPad. Samsung's recently released Galaxy Tab S, however, may be the best Android tablet you can buy.
Other than its super-slim design and gorgeous display, the Tab S comes with a handful of software features that allow you to do more than you can with an iPad.
Here's a quick look at what you can do with the Galaxy Tab S that you can't do with an iPad.
You can use your fingerprint to make payments or launch apps
The Galaxy Tab S comes with Samsung's fingerprint sensor in the home button. Since Samsung has partnered with PayPal, you can use your fingerprint to verify purchases rather than typing in a password.
Samsung's software lets you run more than one app side-by-side
Thanks to Samsung's Multi-Window Mode, you can open two apps and run them alongside one another on the home screen.
You can control your smartphone directly from the Galaxy Tab S
Samsung's SideSync feature, which lets you control your phone from the tablet, only works if you have a Galaxy S4, Galaxy S5, or Galaxy Note 3 smartphone. The feature is designed to make it easier to transfer files between your phone and tablet, but you can also use your tablet to make or answer phone calls. Making calls from your tablet seems a bit awkward, but the idea is that if your phone is in another room, you can still answer the call immediately without having to run to get it.
