Keep your handicapped Samsung tablet with heavy OS and poor multitasking.

Samsung can't even properly make the Galaxy Book S with severely underpowered intel (i5 NG series) or SD 8cx CPU that are supposed to run x86 apps but can't. And also behind A12X in terms of performance.

Bogdan, 04 Aug 2020I have my Dell Latitude ultrabook from work, my desktop PC ... moreWell some people watch movies even with phone. I personally watch my movies with my 75" TV. Tablet is for YouTube etc. viewing for me. You can't really said that tablet is useless for average users. You have your way to do things and some others have different, like for example me. I bought iPad because i spent lot of times with my iPhone so i thought doing same with bigger screen would be really great and it is, atleast for me. Surprising to hear you want to use your iPhone over iPad, but like i said everyone have different taste. I Personally doesn't reach much to iPhone at home because i keep reaching iPad.

I just used it at the beginning, because of the joy of the new thing bought, after that I was reaching from my iphone all the time and the tablet was collecting dust.

I do not like to watch movies on small screens, not even laptop. I prefer my 27" monitor or 40" smart TV. For web browsing and youtube, I do not see any difference between 5.5" and 10", for example.
Of course, I understand the people who are using their tablets for productivity, but for the average user like myself, is just an extra gadget, whom I do not need or use that much.

It's light, super fast no loading times just very enjoyable to use for light use. Well i also edit my photos with iPad because the screen is so great, very natural colours so i know what i'm editing.

I don't really see use for laptop. I have my desktop pc for heavy duty and iPad for everything else.

You get a phone and tablet in one. Pack the dual scren in the bag if they want to use the phone as a... phone.

  • Bogdan

Still useless for the average people. I mean, the only way tablets made any sense, was when people did actually travel more (for business or pleasure). Now, staying all day in home, I see them even more irrelevant. There is always the laptop or PC and a smartphone for a "before bad" quick session. Not worth to pay another smartphone price, just to have a little more screen.
The only tablets I saw relevant were Microsoft or Apple expensive models. But even in this case, they are relevant only for the business orientated person. I find hard to believe that somebody will buy an ipad Pro (1000EUR), just for youtube and internet browsing.

Tablet market will decline with time.

And when they stop making smaller phones (already done actually), people will be forced to buy currently overpriced foldables.
