This is a cool thing from Samsung, but they will have to beware, because Apple always have to beat Samsung to the punch.
iPad started 4:3, Android jumped in the market with 18:9 for movie watching, then realizing it a mistake and follow Apple again.
Live Life at Fullest, 17 Feb 2015Samsung is copying the ipad style of aspect ratioI think you missed that Google uses it on the Nexus 9 also.
So why are you automatically assuming the Apple angle when it's just as likely Google
I think there may be more models for both ratio... Samsung never tries to make less models sure to vast population of earth and every one has different likes....
If ipad has 4:3 aspect ratio that doesn't mean nobody else could use it.
TAIMAT, 17 Feb 20154:3 good for reading browsing .. horrible for movies & everything 16:9 even hd pics
if i ... more16:9 is only for watching movies only man....
4:3 is good for everything else.. webbrowsing / gaming / e-book reading / in landscape and portrait.
And besides. Samsung tablets normally go for 16:10. Not 16:9, which is a whole lot better.
4:3 good for reading browsing .. horrible for movies & everything 16:9 even hd pics
if i wanted a good android 4:3 the Nexus9 will always be a good choice
hope the rumor isn't true
i wanted to buy an 8.4 s2 tablet but i guess it won't happen now due to the ancient and shitty crappy pathetic 4:3 moronic ratio
tito73, 16 Feb 2015if as laggie as my t705 galaxy tab s 8.4 inches lte,...can avoid the production!@ijkv,,, "laggie"? seriously,, do you even know what lte means, have you ever use much less own a tab lte? i doubt it very much

They were among the first to release bigge... more@Anonymous,,,, a "follower" really? samsung started with bigger phone screen, more power inside, much improved camera, a stand alone smart watch, which by the way has been out in the market since last year (that iwatch is still no where in sight), and so on and on,,, i dont think samsung is a "follower" i think its a leader,,, and has left the fruit by a country mile,
Ya, agreed, my tab s 8.4 lte is so laggy, that I don't understand how did this thing passed samsungs production standards...
why does Samsung has to be a follower all the time? They were among the first to release bigger than 8-inch and 10-inch standards tablets, and now they just go down to ipad's standard.
Dot-WiFi, 17 Feb 2015for samfan ... everything samsung do is far more better than apple , even the super lag one ~Yeah... Like super amoled diplay..... Better battery... Android... Connectivity..... No IOS.... LOL... Lagging is curable just google it.... And lagging is very little... Even my tab 4 t231 does not laggs...
Anonymous, 17 Feb 2015Now they won't use a crapdragon so you're safe. I generally don't have much sympathy for those... moreKeep on dreaming, the only reason why Samsung products lag is due to the exynos chips and samsung inability to make a decent product.
Finally. I've been waiting for this for a long time. The 16:9 is really annoying when reading books and taking notes. The only thing I'd like is an s pen too. I hated the surface pro 1 & 2 because of the aspect ratio. The 3 is amazing but I'd rather have a smaller tablet
a4 paper is 29.7x 21cm
better not make the tab longer than 21cm.
perfect screen aspect ratio is as the a4 paper
could gradually go close to this perfect ratio
some current phones has been made too long. which are unhuman
should not be longer than 14.9cm. (a4 long side/ 2)
