You only notice this difference with demanding tasks such as video editing or playing 3D games at the highest settings.

The S Pen stylus of the Tab S6 Lite is less advanced than that of the Tab S6. Because the button on the stylus is missing, it's not possible to operate the tablet via the so-called 'gestures'. This means you don't have to charge the stylus. The screen of the Tab S6 Lite responds even faster to the stylus than the Tab S6, so you can work even more accurately. In addition, you can also take notes with the stylus when the screen of the Tab S6 Lite is turned off.

Although the Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 Lite, Tab S6, and Tab S5e aren't particularly different in terms of appearance and performance, there are certainly enough differences. It depends on your usage situation which tablet is most suitable. For example, the Tab S6 can handle demanding tasks more easily. The Tab S6 Lite is most suitable for your work or study.
