I disabled Touch Sensitivity and Dexterity setting Press and hold delay to 1s but problem still insist.

Previously with other brand phablet just fine!
Battery performance not much different with the previous 6.4" FHD IPS phablet 3000mAh when playing the same game (online).
Battery's charge time to full again really quiet boring wait!

Sorry my English...

I bought this tablet for 3 months.At first this tablet work well.But after 3 months, the battery start having problem.The battery can only stand for 1-2 hours if i play games. the battery can drop from 80++% to 10++%.When i charge the tablet, the battery percent will rise from 0% to 40 or 50 %.I have to charge it 2-3 time a day or even more.The camera flash of my tablet did not work even i never use the camera flash.I never drop my tablet n i use it carefully.My tablet will also suddenly become no service so it is hard for me to make a call.The screen of my tablet will sometime appear yellow lines. When the yellow line appear, my tablet will hang n it will restart itself. I'm dissapointed with it .This is the first android tablet that i bought n it come out with something like this .

Do not buy this tab. I regret buying it because the battery capacity cannot sustain the high res and cpu. i went back to Samsung for inaccurate battery indicator, they fix it but the battery remains short.

I have another Note 10.1 (2012 model). It has lower res and cpu but bigger battery. On the same game, i could play much longer (2x?).

Tab S 8.4 is like a Ferrari with 1litre fuel tank.

owned this 8.4 for 2 says.
used tab3 8 for almost a year
i just feel 8.4 (12.6cm) is not very comfortable to hold compared to tab 3(12.4cm). my fingers have to stretch wider to hold it with 1hand on back gripping the left and right ends. long time holding is not comfortable. its bezel is too thin, not comfortable to hold at bezel either. 2mm is such different.
i suggest to try 12.5cm in future iterations.
its true black screen is king of all kinds.

Restart your device after update, then go to Setting > Connections > More Networks, then choose Mobile Networks > Network Mode choose LTE/WCDMA/GSM (Auto Connect).

May be some country have different availability update...

My latest update is January 8, 2015 version!

Go to Settings>General>About device, then choose Software update>Update now!

It's size about 158MB (January 8,2015). Restart your device after update finished!

Go to Settings>Connections>More networks, then choose Mobile networks, choose LTE/WCDMA/GSM (Auto connect)!

That's based on my experience with the device so far.
For update availibility for each country may be different.

Hopefully help...
Sorry for my english!
