In my opinion, I think you should go with the Samsungs book cover case not only because it gives you the feeling of security of better build quality but also because of its compatibility with the device itself. Samsung has optimized the keyboard exclusively for the Tab S4 to save the battery as well as to enhance performance.
Also, there aren’t many options that are as good as the Samsung Book Cover. So, you are kind of limited with few manufacturers for the keyboard. Among which Samsung would be the best to go with.
Also, a lot of Manufactures don’t include a touchpad in the keyboard like Samsung does. And this keyboard also acts as a cover protecting your device from external hits and drops. So buying this keyboard instead of a 3rd party keyboard is a no-brainer.
