My request to all is that while posting your comments please you should mention that your tab is Snapdragon 800 or Exynos 5420 version. Without this information you can not get proper answer regarding battery draining and other issues. Regards
SammySong, 07 Nov 2014There really is a big problem with this device. Faulty battery which drains fast, so tiny font... moreI have camera flash issue too.
Only after restart the tablet, the flash will works again.
I believe is software bugs.
Battery life is getting better and better.
One of the best tablet out there.
The screen is just the best found in this category.
2K resolution and AMOLED really shine on this tablet.
Other than minor glitch, usual Samsung Touch Wiz over customization, other is just fine.
The next software update should rectify all the problem.
Phone call, LTE, camera, GPS, media player, gaming, speaker, just great on this tablet.
Paired with Samsung gear, this is just another super phablet.
I want to buy this or tab pro 8.4 which one giving more problems?

I am a light user and this tab easily lasts me a day to go down to 65 - 70%. I don't see why it wouldn't last one day's moderately heavy use. Initially, when I loaded large pdf files in my tab, battery life was really bad then... because it used to lauch an android process called 'index service', which was a real battery drainer. I almost got mad over my new tab, thought about rooting it just to stop that stupid process from running. Then, I decided to see how much battery it can drain. I removed all my data, then loaded a 5000 page pdf. 'Index service' launched almost immediately and started eating battery. But, this time I did not force stop it and it continued eating battery for another two and half hours, draining me to 40% and there it stopped. No more battery draining during the next charge. It appears that 'index service' is an one time process which will drain you high when you load a large pdf for the first time, but if u allow it to run for the duration it wants to run, it will not bother you later. So, don't force stop it when it launches, that will not help. And another thing you should notice that this annoying process only does its job when the screen is on. So, if you are thinkin of putting the tab on charge with the screen kept off, that is not going to help either. Rather, start reading the pdf you just loaded and by the time you'll finish your reading you may notice the job is done.
Guys pls help i have been using this tab since 2 months ... and i should say that its the best device samsung ever made ...Simply superb .
but from last 1 week my tab is sufferi n g from super battery drain and unusual jumps of battery from one point to another like 60% to 40% in 5 min and then from 38% to 15% in 6-7 min....
and suddenly to 1% and switch off...
but when i connect the charger while its off while charging it shows that battery is 26 to 34% ...
i am not able to understand whats happening. .
is any1 else having this problem as battery drain seems to be a common problem.
Index service are the main culprit in my case....
Which one is better chipset GSMarena ? Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 or Exynos 5420 at this tab s 8.4 LTE ?

I bought package of 4G LTE yesterday. The network signal show 4G (sometime H+) , the internet speed goes faster. This tablet supports multi - window as well..there are still many functions i haven't learned from this device yet.
In specifications this tab has exynos and octa core.but i bought samsung tab t705 lte with exynos quad core processor. I am very much confused. Seller is unable to explain. Please anybody can help me.Is it a china made tab with low specifications? I am in Pakistan.
using mobile data for internet and lots of cpu installed in this device. no doubt the battery will drain fast!
