ProJames, 18 Nov 2017Old news. The device was launched in stores one/two months ago. ... moreFunny is that in Brazil has not yet been released, but it already has a support page:

Even the Galaxy Tab Active 2 that has already been released there still does not have a page like that!

Luxor, 22 Nov 2017That was not my point. If you go back to my original first post ... moreiPad (2017) is the best deal (specs/dollar), but if one can't afford that , there are better solution than Tab A ...

Giving $240 for almost half the specs of a $310 tab is IMO highway robbery.

It's a $150 tablet, tops masquarading itself as a low mid-end one (whilst in fact it's a low-low end)...

If you go back to my original first post here, Im saying that you should not compare this low speced tablet with ipad 2017. Tab A is not flagship grade. What was your point anyway? You keep recommending android tablet with higher and higher price. Like, what?! What the purpose of arguing comparing this Galaxy Tab A and ipad 2017 if you keep listing down all the equally expensive flagship tablet?? And you said Samsung overpriced everything after showing me all those expensive tablet? Nice logic man.

Luxor, 22 Nov 2017Like, duhh. I said specifically 'actively doing tablet'. I know ... moreXiaomi happened to have the better prices, there's also the Mediapad M3 which is even better than the Xiaomi for merely $20 more: https://www.geekbuying.com/item/Huawei-M3-Tablet­-PC-4GB-RAM-64GB-ROM-Gold-387175.html

And Huawei is very much active on the tablet market with the "Mediapad" line of theirs...

Was your point that Galaxy Tab A is a good deal? Think again.

AnonD-711468, 21 Nov 2017My bad, it's $150 more: https://www.geekbuying.com/item/Official... moreLike, duhh. I said specifically 'actively doing tablet'. I know Mi Pad 3 but Xiaomi is not active in tablet market even if they made flagship android tablet. Besides, their tablet is not even as popular as ipad. All your reccommendation is from Xiaomi. Lol. Now, we all know you are Xiaomi bias.

... I think you're the one who's to be informed.

Also Mi Pad 3 for ~$50 more, is twice as good in specs as well.

You should be more thorough on your searches.

Btw, ipad (2017) is cheap for its class because it got no competitor in ios system. Samsung is the only one actively doing tablet market in android world. Show me other brand showing off their flagship android tablet. None.

Luxor, 20 Nov 2017Mind seeing the price tag before comparing it with Apple flagshi... moreYes! You get that kind of specs on phones for just $100 more (mi 6), why not tablets? Oh wait , *now* I know, that's because Samsung overprices everything.

Also iPad (2017) is $330 with twice Tab A's specs and a 1000 more tablet optimized tabs... it's a no-brainer really. Another category that Samsung used to lead (Galaxy Note 10.1 - 2014 owner here) that simply gave up to Apple (Apple is killing it on tablets btw)...

AnonD-711468, 18 Nov 2017That's *exactly* what tablets need . More bixby and hardware str... moreMind seeing the price tag before comparing it with Apple flagship ipad. This tablet is only $240. You expect what? SD835? 6GB RAM? 128GB internal? Lolololololol. Go worship the ipad if that your kind of thing.

I buy Samsung Galaxy S8+ once it release. So long I use S8+, do you think I dunno how Bixby looks like. Did you know now it finally can total disable in latest firmware? Samsung did this because a lot people complain and want this. Just the button cannot map for others function yet but it can be total disable now, from button to home launcher, it can be 100% make it not appear now.

The Bixby is not accurate and slow. It is a big junk Samsung put in after clean up others junk. It is not in level of Google Assistant yet for accuracy and respond. Voice Assistant the best now is Google Assistant, second is Siri, 3rd is Windows Cortana, Bixby is the worst.

I never use? Hahaha! If I never use I won't comment, not like some keyboard warrior only talk but in actual never use it before.
