That makes me one and done with Samsung tablets/phones.
It wouldn't have been quite so bad if they had at least more clearly communicated their intentions, but of course Samsung support is non-existent, and Tab Pro users have been left in limbo for the better part of a year.
Sammy should stick to making SSDs and leave products that require support to other manufacturers.
heynekko, 25 Nov 2015I really think that this is not a problem at all.. After all what are significant improvement ... morei agree with you bout being smart, but not all of us,
but please dont deny about whining
I will never, ever buy another Samsung tablet. I still have my Tab Pro 10.1, but don't use it very often. I just keep spreading the word that Samsung does not update their tablets and never will. Buy something else.
I use CyanogemMod since June: https://wiki.cyanogenmod.org/w/Mondrianwifi_Info
Perfect without Samsung's unuseful staff.
Galaxy Tab S 8.4 is in Slovenia in version 5.0.2...with new update (same os never functions at least).
Just 3 words ... Fu*k u samsung ..ive been waiting since last year for an update
i got this tablet and it's extremely fast. faster than my s5 which was extremely fast with kit-kat and after that got slower (not too slower but is slower instead of faster)...So...Even if they update the 8.4 Pro i will NEVER update it cause their updates suck. Sometimes i even think of formatting my s5 with kit-kat but im used to lollipop now and i'm not in a mood for changes.
When you produce 1001 different versions of mobiles and tablets , you CAN't support them. Thats why my next mobile will be a NexusWhatever even though samsung has the best hardwear and features.
I want a Nexus with samsung's camera and display, and google's non stop support. No apple no nothing can compete that. That's why i'm not a funboy. I'm a customer and i want something better than all apple samsung and other copies available...
Samsung's version of thank you "Thank you for all your support Samsung fans, now F*** off!"
Samsung is more and more becoming like Apple. Sooner or later, Samsung will merge with Apple. If that happens, the new brand name will be SamPple ^_^
haha i knew it was coming.....i dont know why there still some people praise this silly brand
People: " Samsung is the best company ever, lol xD"
Samsung: " yeah, we're not updating your phone, lol XD "
well sammy fans should be happy with this great news ... all of u fight to the death that samsung is better in everything than other manufactures and u know what thats the problem.... after sales support is crap.... they abandon devices even with a year old .. and good hardware wich is a shame.....samsung main problem is that they develop same hardware and call it diffrene tin other countries .... and even worst the make a lot of tablets devices ... then they are unable to updater the whole thing.... they only update top of the line s models ,note and new a series ..if u are out of this then cry samy fan cry even louder to see if they want to give u a colorfull candy atleast.
ps: thast why i never purchase sammy they letdown a lot of people/.
Mello, 25 Nov 2015Why does everyone need to have the absolute latest OS again? Of course, it's okay to have the ... moreSecurity updates, mostly. I've noticed that mobile device OSes tend to drop off the radar a lot quicker after they've been superseded, and probably quickly become more at risk, whereas computer OSes tend to keep getting updates for a period after.
Why does everyone need to have the absolute latest OS again? Of course, it's okay to have the latest software; at the same time, it's also okay to not have to update so fast. KitKat is still fine, for the most part.
This response is a garbage company, so that we have the Cyanogenmod, thank them, the tab pro was one of the first 7 to receive the CM 13 Android 6.0!
This is one of the main reason i ditched Samsung lack of support for their high end devices, my last Samsung device was a Note 4 sold this due waiting forever for it to be updated to 5.1.1 in the UK, now have a Nexus 6.
The same will happen to all current high end phones and tablets once they replaced ie with the S7, Note 6 ect next year support will be few & far between for 2015 devices it's basically Samsung way to get you to buy the latest & greatest every year by slowly killing support for devices that are a year old or killing support off all together.
If you want regular updates & support then either go with Google Nexus or Apple forget Samsung.
It's funny to re-read the review of this tablet. It was as expensive as an iPad mini when released, but the latter continues to receive regular OS and app updates that at least justifies the initial cost outlay. $hamesung.
I feel sorry for tab pro buyers.. It came out as a sort of "high end tab", but its life was cut short by samsung releasing a slightly more premium tab s very shortly after, which means that early tab pro adopters got screwed. And now, those poor tab pro owners wont even get one android update.. Samsung even had the guts to re-release the tab pro for christmas last year to clear unsold inventories.
