dinoni, 23 Feb 2015if it really 4:3 Screen then it SUCK!!!! The Screen is this size for a reason, nobody force you to buy it, and that is why Samsung also have it in size 10.5 ;)
Does the SIM card slot, in Galaxy Tab S LTE, indicate that tab can function as a cell phone? Does the LTE system enable it to function as a cell phone? Or more simply, is it a big phablet?
The stated dimensions for the 8" model are 198mm x 134mm. That's 2mm narrower and 20mm taller than the 2013 Nexus 7. A table with those dimensions would not be 4:3.
And hopefully it will have microUSB 3.0, since I experience loose microUSB 2.0 on several Smart Phones.
this tab S sounds like a downgrade more than anything. Aside from maybe having a better processor and thinner body, everything else is worse. Smaller screen, less resolution, same ram..
Listen! All your Super Amoled displays in tablet or phone have wrong white balance.
How about the Galaxy Note 2015 series? Any new updates ? I hope they keep the 16:9 aspect ratio
Worse than first Gen. About 20% better battery, but smaller screens, less ppi, and far worse battery. One has to be drunk to buy this. Better buy the "old" Gen, it's better equipped. And if one's to debloat it (TouchWiz is very annoying anyway) it's actually very fast too.
Tab S-2 < Tab S, hope it will also come cheaper
Antymalware, 19 Feb 2015As always….. Samsung thinks hardware is the way to go…. That’s why their sales are going drast... more5000 battery on a 10 inch tablet. That's the opposite of having good battery. Good luck to manage 3 consequent hours of screen time.
mda, 19 Feb 2015I thought the 5433 IS 64bit?Its got the a53/57 architecture but can only run in A arch32
Anonymous, 19 Feb 2015Seriously why?? I wouldn't mind if a tablet was 10mm thick if that mean it had a 10000mA/h bat... moreExactl, I have the same thoughts! Moreover Tab S laggs a lot I hope this doesn't!
Sad the resolution will be lower, but this will greatly reduce the pressure on the cpu. The battery endurance will probably be the same despite it being smaller. Overall so far it seems like they're going to rival Apple directly, but sacrificing one of the predecessors' key selling points - QHD AMOLED screens for the straight rivalry in thickness and shit dissapoints me. Not to mention the media consumption with this new aspect ratio.
why release a new 32bit tablet. what a waste.
I'm looking for the 12inch version of the tab s with the s pen to go with it.
Oh no, they didnt! Yes they did. Tablet with this outdated aspect ratio, what are they thinking?!?!?! any samsung users not going to buy this at least thats what they have been saying over years.
As always….. Samsung thinks hardware is the way to go…. That’s why their sales are going drastically down….. There is no need for desktop class innards to start with…… Whats the point of having such a specs if there are no quality apps for it!!!! The main thing in tablet space is not hardware but software (QUALITY apps) offered in the store with apps which Samsung and Google Play all lacking badly!!!!! App's, app's and app's!!!!!!!!! QUALITY APP's!!!! Samsung, go further with this way of thinking and you will end up like Nokia and BlackBerry……………………
Seriously why?? I wouldn't mind if a tablet was 10mm thick if that mean it had a 10000mA/h battery. What sh#t is this? And why change the aspect ratio?? 4:3 is f#ing stupid. You can read web pages and documents just as well but dont have to watch cropped movies and squashed games.
Stylus must be included. That's gonna make difference with iPad in terms of advantages.
