I switch between Sketchbook and Artflow.
Just as a heads-up though, the Tab S doesn't have pressure sensitivity settings like the Note series does.
If I may interject, I have an Nvidia Shield Tablet and, except for the palm rejection, it works pretty well enough for me and seems like a great alternative if you want to use it for drawing. The default drawing app kinda sucks (I reccomend Art Flow)and it uses Nvidia's proprietary technology instead of Wacom's. It's a cheaper and more powerful tablet than Samsung's offerings and I really like it's gaming features too.
Would recommend if anybody's looking for a cheap Android tablet to draw on.
Palm rejection is a must for a tablet. I know that Artflow has it, but it's not comaptible with all devices, so you would have to check first. I'm sure there are other apps tho!

I prefer artflow, but it doesn't make me any better at art... :P
> Now, I know getting a cheap android tablet and a capacitive stylus won't be as good as having a Cintiq. But I don't intend to make full fledged pieces on the go, just have something to sketch in, maybe do some simpler/smaller pieces.
Honestly, drawing with a normal passive capacitive stylus is just nonesense, unless you plan on just coloring sketches. The precision just isn't there and of course you get no real pressure sensitivity or palm detection.
So like the other posters, I can only recommend going with the Galaxy Tab S3, which includes the S-Pen, using Wacom tech just like the Cintiq. In many ways its even an upgrade over the Cintiq Companion on paper, with a way brighter screen and a pen with 4096 levels of pressure (although no angle detection; not sure if the Companion supports that). Of course you can't use full desktop Photoshop on an Android tablet, but ArtFlow (PlayStore page shows older version with older UI in the video) for example is good enough for most things and exports PSD files if further processing is needed.
Alternatively, the Android version of the Lenovo Yoga Book is a bit cheaper and also uses a Wacom pen (although not for drawing directly onto the screen); same with the Windows version. It might be a bit cheaper but I would still prefer the S3 for its OLED screen and better hardware overall.
Other alternatives are the iPad Pro or the MS Surface series which have active pens of similar quality but neither are cheaper than the S3.
Nearly forgot, if you really on a strict budget there are some older Samsung tablets that also use the Wacom tech S-Pen, like the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1.
For those wondering I made it 4,096x2,304 4k
I used artflow to make it. [link]
