So they stop ... moreYou do realize the amoled screen is a much lower power draw than the junk apple uses? The s2 had an average of 15 hours of video playback. Lets see an ipad do that... the battery is bigger than the s2. Unless you are trapped on a desert island 9 hours of constant use is pretty adequate.

I just sold my s2 and ordered the s3. I do agree the price delta is huge though.
If you do only Lock-Screen memos, the battery's going to last for days. Else, except a very good battery life of about 10 hours or more without games, as the SD820 is 14nm, and if you don't push it, it doesn't require that much battery. Add the Super AMOLED display and you're good to go!

I can watch stream from my NAS or local ssd for abkut 5-6 hour none stop. And that is only 5200mAh. Remember windows 10 chew alot more power then iOS or Android OS. That being said. This S3 is 6000mAh but the screen is much smaller and the OS dont drain the battery out as quick. Also the CPU and GPU on this dont use as much as my Tab Pro S. So I assume the battery should be minimum 7-10h long. Depending on how you use it.
How long will battery last? For watching movies, anime, games...
Is this battery small for this specs? i know samsung has good batterys but still...
Techieboy10, 05 Mar 2017Finally Samsung Once again prove that he is the real copycat,Copy Ipad pro 9.7
Four speaker ,... more? New, how about maintaining a Micro SD slot?
How about actually including a stylus pen that Apple charges $130 for?
How about using a Super AMOLED screen that is far superior to anything in any generation of the IPads?
How about using a USB 3.1 type C port instead of a proprietary connector that forces you to buy overpriced Apple accessories? Not to mention faster data transfer than the Apple USB 2.0 connector provides?
How about being able to drag and drop files directly into the tablet without having to jump through hoops with itunes or having an internet connection to access dropbox?

Gssali, 27 Feb 2017How does this compare to a surface PRO4?You cannot compare the two..Surface is Beast
S Pen is the only selling point I can see for this tablet. Otherwise, the Tab S2 is lighter, has a grippy back instead of a slippery mirror, it's fast enough, and it's so much cheaper. I'd only pay extra for a better display, so the same one again at 264 ppi it's not going to cut it for me.
Anonymous, 02 Mar 201732gb for a tablet in 2017 is pathetic it has a micro sd slot tho.....
Anyone know if they will have a GSM version (and offered by T-Mobile)? Maybe too new to know.......
I was looking at getting the T-Mobile Tab S2, however, the price is still full retail, so may as well get the s3, if they offer it. (Unless they do a deep discount on the s2).
good camera 13mp for tablet samsung is better from other android phones in all like display is now more good with hdr super amoled and 4gb ram gud from previous model than 3gb and now 4 stereo speakers with akg harman sound quality spen is also more advanced amazing with latest android nougat
looks like this is the only android tab with a good camera. i'll probably be upgrading from my tab s
Useless piece i will stick to my TAB S2. Not worth buying this one. I was hoping high.
