Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 vs. Samsung Galaxy Tab S4

The Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 is pitched to be a professional’s tablet – powerful, versatile, and with a few new features that make it an attractive alternative to the comparably-sized 11-inch iPad Pro. But is it truly better than its predecessor, the Samsung Galaxy Tab S4, that came out the year before?You’d be forgiven for wondering why there isn’t a Tab S5 – for some reason, Samsung bypassed that numeration – but it’s just as well since the Tab S6 didn’t change that drastically from the previous year’s model. It has, however, been refined in some key quality-of-life ways that make it more attractive than the Galaxy Tab S4, especially if you like using the S Pen stylus. So, the question: should you pick up the new tablet, or buy the old one at a discount?Below, we’ll delve into each aspect of both tablets before offering a final verdict at the end.

Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 vs. Samsung Galaxy Tab S4 price and release date
The Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 Wi-Fi-only model will go on sale in the US on September 6 starting at $649 for the base model (6GB RAM/128GB of storage – it’s unclear how much pricier the 8GB RAM/256GB of storage model will be). As for the LTE model, Samsung has only said it’s coming later in 2019. Other regions haven’t gotten their own prices or firm release dates for either version yet, though the Wi-Fi-only model will be available in the UK in late August. The Samsung Galaxy Tab S4 was released in August 2018, and you can typically find it discounted from its $649 (£599, AU$959) launch price. In essence, that’s what this versus guide boils down to: is the Tab S6 worth the money to buy it at full price, or should you go for the older-but-still-solid model?

Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 vs. Samsung Galaxy Tab S4 design
While there are some minor differences, the biggest changes come with devices that aren’t the tablet – the S Pen has gotten some tweaks, while the revamped Book Cover Keyboard is far superior with its added touchpad.The Tab S6’s design is a bit different, however: it’s thinner, for one, at 5.7mm (just shy of the iPad Pro’s thickness) compared to the 7.1mm of the Tab S4. Granted, that’s still slimmer than Samsung’s smartphones (the Samsung Galaxy S10 is 7.8mm), but the newer version of the tablet is lighter, too, at 420g vs. the Tab S4’s 480g – but honestly, having to tote around an extra tenth of a pound of weight isn’t too onerous.In terms of the accessories, the new tablet’s S Pen clips on to the back and recharges and both official cases curve over the stylus to ensure it doesn’t go anywhere. That’s more convenient than the Tab S4’s solution – a holster in the Book Cover Keyboard – but if you’re picking up this tablet, you’re probably going to purchase that optional keyboard case, too.The S Pen itself has been improved too – instead of a cylinder, it’s an ovoid (to prevent rolling). It can also do Air Gestures: hold the button on the stylus and make quick movements to control the volume, switch photo modes, and more. Is it useful? Possibly, but it might just be easier to tap tried-and-true directions yourself.The new Book Cover Keyboard is another serious upgrade. It’s in two parts, so you can toss aside the keypad if you don’t have the room (like on airplane tray tables), and there are new shortcuts to easily switch modes – like turning on and off tablet-to-desktop DeX. If the new Book Cover Keyboard isn’t compatible with the Tab S4, that’s a big feather in the Tab S6’s cap.

Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 vs. Samsung Galaxy Tab S4 display
This might be the easiest comparison to make in the whole guide, as the Tab S6 seems to have inherited the Tab S4’s 10.5-inch Super AMOLED display without any obvious alterations. The resolution is still  WQXGA (2,560 x 1,600 pixels). …Okay, there’s one change: the Tab S6 has an in-display fingerprint sensor. If you hated only having facial recognition for your authentication, this might be another good reason to opt for the new tablet.A final note – the screen is still 10.5 inches, but the newer tablet is shorter and less wide by 5mm each. Don’t fret, the bezels are just narrower, shaving around 2.5mm on each of the four sides.

Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 vs. Samsung Galaxy Tab S4 camera
Another entry in the minor-change category: The Tab S6 seems to have the Tab S4’s same 8MP front-facing camera and 13MP wide-angle rear shooter, but the new tablet also added a 5MP ultrawide lens to augment its photography.Phones have been adding ultrawide lenses to their camera suites for the last year, and the results speak for themselves: more context and peripheral vision. If you liked how much the Galaxy S10 phones captured with their 123-degree ultrawide shooter, you’ll like the Tab S6 as its lens captures the same field-of-view.Of course, if you don’t particularly care about using your tablet for photography (and we can’t blame you), you can probably skip this category.

Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 vs. Samsung Galaxy Tab S4 performance and battery
When the Galaxy Tab S4 came out in August 2018, we were worried that its already-old Snapdragon 835 processor would hinder its performance – and were pleasantly surprised that it didn’t. The tablet runs just fine on a baseline 4GB of RAM, though its basic 64GB of storage is a little slim (don’t fret, it’s expandable with a microSD card).But if you wanted serious power, the Tab S6 packs the latest Snapdragon 855 chipset found in this year’s phones – an 86% increase in performance, per Samsung representatives. Add in a bump up to 6GB RAM and 128GB of space for the baseline (optionally upgradeable to 8GB RAM and 256GB of storage), and you’ve got a beefier machine that will likely age a bit better over the years.It will probably handle multitasking better, too – not just switching between apps, but with Samsung’s always-promising, almost-handy DeX mode. What we saw of the Tab S6 was a tablet that could stream video while powering casual browsing on another monitor, though it wasn’t the performance that tripped us up with the Tab S4 – it was the constantly-crashing third-party apps. We’ll have to await further testing to see if the S6 avoids a similar fate.Battery-wise, the Tab S4’s is actually larger at 7,300mAh – not surprising, given the slightly-thinner casing in the Tab S6, which likely whittled down the battery to 7,040mAh. How much this limits the new tablet’s runtime is unclear without further testing, but they’re roughly comparable, and both have fast-charging.

Final verdict
With more power and a slightly slimmer package, the Tab S6 is clearly the superior machine – especially if the new Book Cover Keyboard can’t be used with older tablets. But it comes at a hefty cost which might be beyond consumers looking for a casual device.At this point, the Tab S4 has been out long enough to enjoy decent discounts, especially during deals seasons, and it’s hard to justify the full price of the new tablet. Its older processor might mean a shorter lifespan – eventually outpaced by an OS update down the line – but that’s conceivably years away. Your choice boils down to needing the top of the line and/or not sweating the extra cost to pay full price for a work machine, or saving a bit of cash by opting for a model with a serviceable but not terribly exciting suite of accessories and features. There is no must-have feature in the Tab S6, but it is nice to have the latest and greatest specs if you want to do some serious multitasking or gaming.

Entrepreneurs not threatened by AI and automation

Entrepreneurs in the US face both technological and political disruption that is helping them to prosper and grow while also requiring them to adapt in new ways according to GoDaddy’s new Global Entrepreneurship Survey.The web hosting giant’s survey was conducted by the research firm Savanta and surveyed 4,505 small business owners in Australia, Canada, Germany, Hong Kong, India, Mexico, South Africa, Turkey, the United Kingdom and the United States.According to the global survey, entrepreneurs are being impacted by a myriad of external challenges ranging from cyber threats to political and societal turbulence as they try to grow their businesses. However, even with these disruptions and uncertainties, entrepreneurs remain optimistic with 70 percent of US respondents reporting that they expect their business to grow by at least 25 percent in the next three to five years.
SMBs don’t expect to be hit by a cyberattackWix launches new software platform for entrepreneurs and SMBsHow to build a website using Godaddy Website builder
Experts warn that 38 percent of US jobs are at a potential high risk of automation by the 2030s but the entrepreneurs surveyed by GoDaddy believe they are insulated from the impacts of disruptive technologies.Of those surveyed, 75 percent of small business owners feel protected against job loss from robots, automation and AI. The survey also revealed that females (76%) were slightly more likely to believe than men (71%) that their businesses would be able to withstand these types of technological disruption.
Adapting to change
Political and societal turbulence was another concern cited by entrepreneurs and SMBs as a potential challenge to their success. However, that concern is substantially lower in the US where only 17 percent of entrepreneurs said societal and political turbulence poses a threat to the success of their business, compared to 33 percent of entrepreneurs in all of the other regions surveyed.VP of Global Marketing Operations at GoDaddy, Melissa Schneider explained why SMBs and entrepreneurs are less worried about potential disruption to their businesses, saying:”Globally, we are currently in an intense period of technological, political and societal change and transformation. Small business owners and entrepreneurs are constantly adapting to change, both in their own venture and in the outside world, with limited help. That’s why GoDaddy is so committed to supporting them on their ever-changing journey, with the guidance and tools to help make them successful online.” Technological disruption can pose challenges but entrepreneurs and SMBs, it can also help to reduce the barrier to entry when creating a new venture. Small businesses in the US are among the most likely to report having their own website at 44 percent while 29 percent said they rely on either social media or online marketplaces to conduct their business.

Financial malware threat grows

The number of users hit by financial malware grew by seven percent during the first half of 2019 to reach 430,000 according to new research from Kaspersky which revealed the growing threat that banking Trojans pose to both businesses and individuals.This type of malware is aimed at stealing finances and financial data while also providing threat actors with access to users’ and financial organizations’ assets and machines. Banking Trojans have always occupied a significant part of the threat landscape as finance is the most common motivation for both cybercriminals and fraudsters.Kaspersky data on new samples of these threats shows that malware aimed at stealing funds is active and extremely dangerous, especially to corporate environments where connected devices are prevalent.
Major rise in password-stealing malware detectedMobile banking malware threats hit new highsThe security challenges faced by open banking
Spam emails and phishing sites are typical attack vectors for malware and during the first half of this year, Kaspersky researchers detected over 339,000 phishing attacks from web pages which were disguised to appear like the landing pages of large banks.
Banking Trojan families
Kaspersky’s researchers also compiled a list of the most popular banking Trojan families that were utilized to attack corporate users. Four-in-ten (40%) of financial threats on corporate users came from the RTM banking Trojan followed by the Emotet banking Trojan at 15 percent and the Trickster banking Trojan at 12 percent.The cybersecurity firm also found that the situation was a bit different for private users. The Zbot malware (26%) which steals credentials with the option of remote control by attackers topped the list of malware that attempted to attack them followed by RTM and Emotet.Security researcher at Kaspersky, Oleg Kupreev provided further insight on the firm’s findings and the growing threat posed by financial malware, saying:“We expect to see a rise in the number of attacked users in the second half of 2019. Usually, we see a rise in malicious activity after the holiday season, when people are using their devices less than usual and therefore are less likely to fall a victim to threat actors. We urge everyone to be extra careful with all banking and finance-related operations that they perform online and remain vigilant.” To protect your business from financial malware Kaspersky recommends introducing cybersecurity awareness training at your organization, installing the latest updates and patches and forbidding employees from installing software from unknown sources.

Google uncovers security flaws in iMessage

Researchers from Google’s Project Zero have shared the details of five flaws they discovered in Apple’s iMessage software that could leave its devices vulnerable to attack.One of the vulnerabilities they uncovered was so severe that only way to save a targeted iPhone would require deleting all of the data contained on the device. Another vulnerability could even be used to copy files off of a device without any help from the device’s owner.While Apple released fixes to these vulnerabilities last week, the researchers also flagged a sixth vulnerability which has not yet been patched in the latest update to iOS.
Almost all mobile apps vulnerable to malwareApple is spending millions each month on AWSMajor vulnerabilities found in new WiFi standard
Google established its Project Zero team back in 2014 with the aim of uncovering previously undocumented vulnerabilities and so far it has informed Microsoft, Facebook, Samsung and others regarding problems in their code.
iOS update
Apple is well aware of the seriousness of the vulnerabilities discovered by Google and even its own notes regarding iOS 12.4 show that if left unpatched, the flaws could allow hackers to crash an app or execute their own commands on recent iPhones, iPads and even the new iPod Touch if they happen to discover it.The iPhone-maker has not commented on the issue specifically but it is urging users to install the latest version of iOS which contains fixes for the vulnerabilities as well as additional glitches and threats. In a statement, Apple stressed the importance of regularly updating your devices, saying:“Keeping your software up to date is one of the most important things you can do to maintain your Apple product’s security.”ZDnet, which broke the initial story, noted that Google’s researchers had shared enough details about the vulnerabilities that attackers could be able to craft exploits to take advantage of them.If you own any of Apple’s mobile products, it is highly recommended that you update them immediately to avoid falling victim to any potential attacks or exploits.

The best Samsung Galaxy Note 8 deals in August 2019

In theory, Samsung Galaxy Note 8 deals should now be old news – right? Well we would disagree, the phone might have now been replaced by a few newer Samsung models but it still stands as one of their best releases yet, now at a super affordable price.Both the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 and the Galaxy S10 have come out since, full of high-end specs but, they both carry massive price tags. Samsung Galaxy Note 8 deals are definitely still well worth a look. And it’s still getting cheaper!
The Note 8 is not by any means a budget device, however. It’s a absolutely massive  smartphone, not just in size but also in raw power. It’s got the screen size and specification smarts to be a competitor to the highly praised iPhone X or iPhone’s new massive iPhone XS Max and neither of those come cheap. But there are now some excellent Samsung Galaxy Note 8 deals floating around. Check out our comparison chart and handpicked favourite Galaxy Note 8 deals below.Now we know some of you may have fiery memories of the Galaxy Note 7 in your head when looking at this device but leave those worries behind. Both the Note 8 and 9 have massively improved their batteries and you won’t be facing overheating problems anymore. Samsung Galaxy Note 8 deals truly are miles ahead of the 7 in every way.

5 best Galaxy Note 8 deals in the UK today:
Should I get the Galaxy Note 8 SIM free?
Are you determined to get the very best price? Always looking to see how you can trim a few pounds off your new favourite gadget? As you probably know, you can now pick up cheap SIM only deals for as little as £4 a month, which could make it worth buying a SIM and handset separately.The Galaxy Note 8’s RRP has dropped massively recently to £649. That is much cheaper than it used to be but you will still be putting up a big chunk of money upfront. Even if you get the cheapest SIM card (usually around £4 a month for 500MB data), that would still cost near to £800 over the two years. You’re probably better cranking up the upfront cost in our price comparison chart above, imposing a low maximum for monthlies and finding a cheaper deal in the long run.To get the best price on your new SIM free Galaxy, you can head to our cheapest unlocked Note 8 deals page.

Wondering what all the fuss is about? Well the fervour for the Note 8 is probably doubled due to the fact that the Note 7 was pulled from shelves soon after release. But it doesn’t take more than one look at the Note 8 to see that it justifies the hype.The huge 6.3-inch ‘Infinity Display,’ is gorgeous to look at, the 6GB RAM innards go like a train and there are two best-in-class rear cameras. It’s expensive, but we think the Note 8 is worth it. Read TechRadar’s full Samsung Galaxy Note 8 review

What are the benefits of Three?
The benefits of getting a Three mobile deal can be split into three main categories:  Another factor that has made Three so popular is its offer off massive amounts of data (or even unlimited) at some brilliant price points. 
Can I keep my number when I switch to Three?
You sure can, if you switch over to an Three mobile deal and want to keep your old number, then simply call your old network, get a PAC code and transition it over. If you were previously on Three, you can still keep your number but it is slightly more complicated. They won’t let you keep your number, so you have to use this workaround. Buy a free pay-as-you-go SIM from any other network and tell your network that you’re moving. They’ll release the PAC code, which you then give to the substitute network. Then, you immediately get another PAC code from them. Take that to your old network, and they’ll move your number to your new contract. Long winded, but easier than learning a new number!
Can I use my Three phone abroad?
When it comes to roaming abroad Three mobile deals are a pretty great way to go. With access to free roaming anywhere in Europe and options in at least 71 countries, Three trumps the rest for roaming charges.There are select countries where you will have to pay extra to use your data, you can check Three’s website to find these countries.

With 4G coverage of roughly 95% of the UK population, Vodafone won’t let you down when it comes to connection. Sign up for a Vodafone red entertainment plan and you can get access to the likes of Now TV, MTV and Sky Atlantic.No matter the plan you’re on, you will be able to use Vodafone’s Veryme rewards scheme. This will occasionally give you access to free coffees and snacks, giveaways and discounts.
Can I keep my number when I switch to Vodafone?
If you switch over to a Vodafone deal but want to keep your old number, then simply give your old network a ring, get a PAC code and transition it over. If you were previously with Vodafone, you can still keep your number but it is a slightly trickier affair. They won’t let you keep your number, so you have to use this workaround. Buy a free pay-as-you-go SIM from any other network and tell your network that you’re moving. They’ll release the PAC code, which you then give to the substitute network. Then, you immediately get another PAC code from them. Take that to your old network, and they’ll move your number to your new contract. Long winded, but easier than learning a new number!
Can I use my Vodafone device abroad?
With any Vodafone deal you can use your data allowances without any additional costs while travelling within Europe. That includes locations such as French Guiana, St Martin and Martinique. When travelling outside of Europe your costs with a Vodafone deal will jump up. Anywhere outside of Europe is a ‘roam-further destination’, this means you will be charged £6 a day to use your data.However, get a Vodafone red entertainment plan and you will get to use roaming for free anywhere in the world.
