Pro: S Pen Include

The Galaxy Tab S6 features S Pen integration and it is included in the box. This means you don’t have to buy a separate stylus like you have to with the Apple Pencil. Plus the Tab S6 features a nook for you to store the S Pen where it wirelessly charges. Kudos to Samsung on this design.
