After both the Wi-Fi-only and LTE versions of its bigger sibling, the Samsung Galaxy Tab S 10.5 got Lollipop updates a while back, now is the time for the LTE-enabled variation of the Galaxy Tab S 8.4 to receive the same treat.
The update is currently rolling out over-the-air in Hong Kong, where it's also available to download and install using Kies, Samsung's desktop app. Now that the ice has been broken, we expect to see the Lollipop release making it to Galaxy Tab S 8.4 units sold elsewhere too in the near future.
By the end of this month, we should see a much wider rollout. If you are among the lucky ones to get the update, after applying it you'll be running Android 5.0.2, and firmware version T705ZHU1BOD3.
It brings with it a new look for Samsung's TouchWiz UI, one that's infused with Google's Material Design principles. You also get a new lock screen, new Recent Apps menu, new notification panel, and an improved multi-window mode, along with updates for built-in apps, bug fixes, and performance enhancements.
Wow, this temporary workaround works for my Tab S (SM-T705). So it has something to do with the power management of the Marshmallow update. Samsung should release a patch for this.

i noticed that if you play a lot of games on tablet it starts flickering, but if you don't overuse it, everything is ok
