    I'm looking a Samsung Tablet to complete my eco system and accompany my Note 20 Ultra and GW3

    I'm just struggling on which size! I think the 12.4 is too big for portrait use etc but again I love that big Amoled screen! If I went with this I think it be restricted to the house.

    The smaller one would be more mobile and could take it to work etc to use on my lunch etc, but then it's the LCD screen which I still think will look amazing I'm torn! help haha

    I saw both side by side and I'd say if you want that size, go for S6. AMOLED is hands down the winner. The s7 feels like a step down side by side.

    I moved from Tab S4 to Tab S7+. Initially not very comfortable ordering bigger device but am loving it now. If you are not comfortable with larger screen Tab S7 should be great too and more portable. Don't go for Tab S6 thinking it has amoled screen, as the pros of S7 weighs more. Listing them below.

    - Better processor
    - better placement of front camera
    - better keyboard cover
    - 3 year updates
    - better back cameras
    - 120 hz refresh rate
    - bigger battery
    - better spen (physically)
    - low latency spen
    - wireless Dex
    - efficient storage UFS 3.1
    - wifi 6 (not sure if tab S6 has this)

    Also I recommend going for 256GB version since it will have 8GB RAM.

    Wireless DeX is coming to the Tab S6 by the end of the year, and yes, while the S7 does have 120Hz support, comparing an S6 and an S7 side by side, on the screen front, the S6 still comes out on top. Not so with the S7+, however. AMOLED DOES make a difference.

    Did you make your decision yet?

    I echo everything that @srgonu said. I had the Tab S4, and I liked everything about it except the battery, which was horrendous, especially standby. The smaller S7 had either a similar or smaller battery than the S4, which made it an absolute no go for me, as did the lack of a Super OLED screen. I hate that Samsung neutered the battery and put an LCD screen in the smaller one because that's what I would have chosen. I fully expected not to like the size of the S7+, but the only time I've put it down in the two weeks that I've had it is when my eye was bandaged after a procedure last week, so I wasn't using screens for several days. I never liked the form factor with the S4 because I wanted to use it on portrait mode, which just seemed weird. With the S7+ it would never dawn on me to even try to use it in portrait mode so this is working better for me. It's a little smaller than my 13" MacBook Pro, so it isn't as huge as I thought it would be. I'm fine with the size now and I'm really liking the keyboard case that finally arrived yesterday.

    Yup, size does take some getting used to (and it is heavier than the lower models) but it's by no means bad (it's actually shocking that this screen size can fit into such a slim and not-so-heavy body). Definitely not for everyone, but I do prefer the S7+ (or S6 if you really have to have a smaller screen).
