Battery Life

Inside the Galaxy TabPro S is a 39.5 Wh battery, which Samsung claims is good for 10.5 hours of usage. The tablet also supports fast charging via USB-C, which cuts the charging time down to around 2.5 hours from an entirely flat device.

Compared to competing devices, the battery in the TabPro is pretty typical. The Surface Pro 4, for example, packs a 38.2 Wh battery and a processor that consumes more energy. The 12.9-inch iPad Pro targets a slightly different market, but it packs a 38.8 Wh battery which again is similar in size.

In general, the battery life exhibited by the TabPro S is very good. I was able to get a solid day’s worth of usage out of the device, which mostly included web browsing and document editing over Wi-Fi on a moderate brightness level. I wasn’t able to achieve Samsung’s claimed 10.5 hours in any sort of reasonable productivity use cases, and I achieved better battery life from my Surface Book, but the TabPro S did not disappoint in this department
