How To Set Up Your Galaxy Tab S6

Before you can use your Galaxy Tab S6, you will need to set it up properly. A basic set up will require you to connect the tablet to a network to have an Internet connection. Then you will need to log into your Google and Samsung accounts, although you can skip the latter and do it later in the Settings. 

In this guide, I will show you how to set up your tablet so you can use it immediately. I hope that you can follow this tutorial properly as I will also be providing screenshots.

    So enter your login credentials and tap Next when ready.
