Design is nothing better than its predecessor. 4:3 is downgrade. Smaller battery!
Feel more downgrade.
Almost complete except for it's lack of S-pen, other than that this is my almost desired replacement for my Galaxy note 8, which is stil in good condition only that the battery is not what it use to be, its over 2years ago since I got it!!!

9" variant has 2000 mAh smaller battery than its predecessor, which is a joke.
No S-Pen? Really? Come On! Why make such a high-end device without the s-pen and then put the s-pen on a gimped device like the Tab A? At least include Wacom Pen support for the tablet if you don't want to increase thickness for a built-in pen. The trade off just doesn't make sense.
Luv these devices. Cant wait to buy the s2. Sooo much not realised about the function by the public and retailers. Samsung, pls provide training to sales ppl as they mostly have no idea of features. So superior in so many ways re functions just want to ditch the in- house ipad.

However, I doubt that Samsung would achieve such results.

else explode like China phones. 4000 is respectable for the dimension.
Four (4!) years ago, my Galaxy Tab 10.1 came with a 7000mAh battery. :-(
4000 mAh battery is not sufficient for 8 inch monster to run all day long,even the note 4 itself 3200 mAh for 5.7 inch,so stupid ,
