Have been using this tablet for a few weeks. For the price it is excellent. Screen, sound, build quality ate amazing. DEX is very usefull too for me. Software is up to date with recent updates and the latest security patch. Recomended 100%

That of the oldest profession to mankind. DisplayMate has ranked Super AMOLED highest every year since the Galaxy S2. Because they don't use "measurements" optimised to make LCD look good.

Objective measurements don't matter because ... wait for it ... because you personally not seen these effects on the few devices you have. Anything else is nitpicking. I don't know, it seems pretty logical to me.

I have only bought OLED phones since the days of the pre-Android Samsung Jet and apart from the very first generation I have never sewn any signs of screen degradation on AMOLED. No burn in, no pale colours. Ever. So, you arguing theoreticals as actual cons is desperate nitpicking.
LCDs has all sorts of viewing angle and blacklight inconsistency issues. They have always existed, they're not fixable and they will always exist.

All the things i mentioned are very visible, objective and measurable flaws/limitation of the technology.
But here you go, you know better of course, oled "looks better".
"Looks better" is subjective,the colors are innacurate this is a fact, it is visible from a great distance and actually measurable. Even if you calibrate your panel the best you can, it never matches lcd accuracy and it will go out of calibration in a few weeks/months.
Why do you think there are no oled monitors, or samsung the leader of oled technology doesn't make oled tvs? Because, they are well aware of oleds tech limitations.
I take a good quality LCD any day, but for phones and tablets oleds are ok, because they are lighter and thinner, dispite all their faults.

Looks like iPad Pro 2018. Android tablets are dead anyway. This tablet will be stuck with Android P forever.

This Tablet will stay on Android P forever. The biggest problem in Android's world.

There’s an optional Book cover keyboard that you can use with DeX mode for a laptop-like experience.

Just that it's enough for me: Ubuntu on board with Android for apps who could still resist to uwp solutions...

NOTHING CHANGED. zero. same tech. no gain in anything, not even price, actually the price of usb-c headphones went up!

If i learned anything from getting the Huawei M5 tablet is that i will never buy another Tablet without the 3.5mm headphone plug. ever.
the inconvenience i had to go throw is unbelievable it's literally game breaker for me.

Why only snapdragon 670???
Even Apple's highest end ipad processor costs less than $30

You're nitpicking hypotheticals on OLED while ignoring all the incurable faults with LCD.
Here's a personal anecdote you remind me of. Many years ago I had a colleague who was die hard Hamburg football fan. They lost a game 0-5 to Bayern and he was ridiculing Bayern for only scoring 5 on them. That is you.

And besides the burn-in oleds have major problems, here are a few:
- color accuracy, yes the colors are vivid and saturated, but very inaccurate, this also changes during the panels lifetime because different color oleds age differently, practically imposible to get the whitebalance right
- pixels are not uniform, there is noise in them, try to display a smooth gradient, usually this becomes apparent at low levels
- very noticeable ghosting at low brightness levels, bright pixels respond faster to change than darker ones, this leads to some strange artefacts
- color resolution is best at maximum brighness, at minimum brightness there is around 4-5 bits color resolution left, poor colors and banding at low brightness
- not a real issue just an interesting fact, oleds don't have infinite contrast ratio as many sites claim, when pixels are black they are not actually off, and still emmit light, thogh not visible with eyes, it can be recorded on camera on long exposure, also can see panel nonuniformity this way

So, yeah, oled is cool and everything, but the tech is just not there yet

Your LCD will still look like an LCD after three years, though. Nice, but not excellent like that three year old AMOLED display you could have had.
