I have been using this device for two weeks now, what i can say is that, the device overall responsiveness is great. The build quality is also good, chamfered metal rim with soft rubbery back cover which improves grip of the device. Super Lightweight, has a decent battery life (i do not games, just browsing, YouTube and movies) - 6hrs+ of screen-on time using the device's speakers. The screen is just incredible . Good for browsing the web. Even at a lower pixel density of 320 ppi, text and images still look sharp. OTG is also supported which is very nice.

But, the Rear Camera should have a flash, a wider angle and higher resolution selfie cam. Also, I noticed that there is a problem with the exposure while recording videos on selfie cam as recording against light tends to darken faces too much in favor of the lighter background.

I do not own the previous tab s 8.4 therefore i am only commenting soley for this device.

I liked the "iconic android ratio 16:10" for my smartphone. They're great for watching videos in widescreen. But terrible when used to write office documents.

The "iconic apple's ipad ratio 4:3" looks promising for reading web/writing documents, but wouldn't use the whole screen when watching 16:10/16:9 widescreen videos (black bands above and below).
P.S : I'm not an apple user. I wish I wouldn't have to use anything from Cupertino.

That said, for tablets I'm actually leaning more towards the 4:3 ratio, for reading/writing performance, AND the fact that Tablets are Bigger and Wider and Heavier than smartphones it's unnatural to try keep it in your front trousers/shirt pockets, EVEN IF THEY FIT IN THERE (It'll tear your clothes, believe me).

The problem with video play on 4:3 is those dreaded Black Bands...
Now imagine you play a video with subtitles. The subtitles usually float above the "feet/floor/ground/earth/sea/whatever"­ BLOCKING what you want to see in the video.

Now what if those subtitles appears OVER THE BLACK BANDS instead? This means subtitles would ALWAYS VISIBLE, no more colour problems that used to depend on what's the colour those letters are BLOCKING.

Also, we could want to see more information on those black bands such as: Video Player's buttons, filename, duration, volume level, Jump to Other Videos, and even Wikipedia-supplied information about the movie you're watching.

Not to mention that usually we get the INFORMATIVE Notification Bar hidden when playing videos. This time you can choose to leave it on screen.

End of the line: All these "used_to_be_hidden" information and buttons WILL BE DISTRACTING to those who do not want to see it. But I think it worth the try, for the 4:3 Tablet users. By the way, all these turns out to be software related! So I suppose the evolution wouldn't be as hard to realise than other hardware related ideas. Meaning it's a job for Video Player App developers, i.e "MX PLAYER", "YOUTUBE" and so on.

Is voice call possible in Samsung tablets

  • AnonD-78052

Have you ever heard of a company listened to its customers, Samsung is not an exception, they know that we know that they can provide high quality hardware, software and stylus for low affordable price, but who cares you are 7 billions on that planet and we need to sell 100 million units, they will be sold any way no matter what quality is, that is the mind set of international companies.

If samsung want to beat ipad samsung must make galaxy tab note 8 and 9.7 inch.i think stylus is very usefull for tablet

I owned a tab s 8.4 for a few months. It was the laggiest device i owned. It was still laggy even after i disabled a lot of bloatware from Samsung. I sold and bought tab s2. What a difference... Also i prefer this aspect ratio. Great for browsing the internet. I regain the pleasure of using a tablet.
