Specs comparison: Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 vs. Galaxy Tab S

The Galaxy Tab S3 is Samsung’s latest attempt to sell us a tablet at a time when the tablet market has been on a steady decline, and the company has built in a few great features into the device. There’s the Super AMOLED display with HDR, four speakers tuned by AKG, a premium glass and metal design, and even the S Pen. The Tab S3 is a reasonable upgrade over the Galaxy Tab S2 from last year, but how does it fare with the original Galaxy Tab S?
