How is something that is faster than an iPad, has a better screen, better battery life and arguably has a better OS... not "beating" the iPad?
If were talking about sales figures then no one is going to beat out apple due to all the Macintards who will throw outrageous money at anything iBranded.

People who say there's no noticeable difference probably doesn't have a lot things in their phones, which would then be really weird to be complaining not having microSD card. Really, if microSD card is so important, just get another brand and move on.

Millions of... moreOmg man. It's about the low speed of the SD cards combined with the constants increasing speed onf internal memory. A jump lik 3.4 times faster random and writing speeds is enormous, and adding in SD cards will be like going from SSD to HDD on your laptop. It's gonna have noticable effects. The only reason people are complaining about lack of SD cards, is because they have never actually used a UFS 2.0 device with SD in it. If/When they do, they will change their made in an instant.
I'm not crusading against SD cards. I found them terrific before myself. But when little to nothing is done to increase their speed, as well as internal memory keeps increasing in speed, they slowly become obsolete
It's amazing how there is no current android tablet that can beat the iPad, even if it's not a hard thing to do at all. Samsung started well with their tab S, but it looks like they're obsessing over imitating the iPad, which was never its market anyway as android tablets are for those who prefer functionality over the limitations of iOS.

Millions of people use SD cards. Millions. And they are in fact growing in speed and capacity. Newer ram and socs will also bring more bandwidth to feed both the uds and cards.
And with android m supporting the ability to install an SD card as internal storage..... Something Google should have done ages ago...
Your claim couldn't be more than wrong
i think i m gonna buy one tab this year, tab s2 is my prime candidate
hi fend i realy like the SAMSUNG GALAXY TAB S2 ,,,, PLZ help me out in Price ,, frn"z......

UFS 2.0 brings 3.4 faster memory speeds than before, and SD cards will do nothing but drag down the performance of the device by a lot. When Snapdragon 820 introduces UFS 2.0 as well, I can assure you that SD support, or at least the use of it, will die out. It will be like a floppy disk at that point.
anonymous, 30 May 2015ipad still on top though lolIn your dreams only noob
Meh horrible aspect ratio prefer widescreen infact would like some to be ultra wide, have a LG UWFHD monitor and love it all movies fit it perfectly and is great for side by side multi tasking, after all people use tablets mostly for media consumption and that aspect ratio is more suited for that.
I dont know why Google or any OEM try to use 3:2 ratio. I think it's the best for tablet. Perfect either portrait or landscape. Go to ms store and use the new surface 3 you will love 3:2 ratio for sure.
CoreyWat, 30 May 2015Looks like Widescreen is dead on tabletsLike Zperia z4 tablet ? Oops ...
Any widescreen is silly as it makes portrait mode hard to use, but a 3:2 is best of both worlds as it is usable in both landscape and portrait . iPad on the other hand are mostly useful on portait mode, but try to see a movie and you're greeted with giant black bars.
Anonymous, 30 May 2015It cant be the preceddesor has a flash shhh..iPad doesnt have flash, they will copy it also.

2. Iphone 4 itself was an exact copy of sony player released 2 year earlier than iphone 3gs.research it.
It shouldnt say "most recently a press image surfaced revealing a Galaxy S6-like design" but it should rather say "most recently a press image surfaced revealing iPad-like design"..... Galaxy S6 is a pathetic copy of iPhones 4 and 6 mixed together! anyway!! Only ignorant will say it diferently!
