I would never upgrade my Tab S 8.4. Samsung lost me with their 4:3 aspect ratio and decrease in pixel density. Not to mention the absence of a flash. Way to go Samsung...

The resolution is lower than for the original Tab S from 2014. This just isn't enough for a pentile display. Fonts and so on aren't crisp at all, in particular on the 9.7".
It isn't as horrible a rip-off as the Tab 3 was, but it's way too much money for a mediocre tablet.
It'll be interesting to see how they'll respond to Apple's first 4k iPad. Hopefully they'll up the resolution. 4k Oled would be something to see indeed.

Based on the scores shown by the Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 Pro, wich uses a Snapdragon 650 - with only two A72 cores -, this one is lacking in Geekbench, mostly in single-core performance (it should score north of 1500 points, the A72 is that strong). Maybe those benchmarks are from an yet unfinished or unoptimized device, with beta software.
Wow, the ipad air 2, even though almost two years old at the release of tab s3, will destroy the flagship samsung tablet again. samsung shouldnt charge the tab s2 and s3 at ipad prices.
I still wait for galaxy tab note 8 inch,not for tab a with s pen.i want a high end tablet
bought a tab s2 october last year, never got the chance to enjoy my baby for more than 2 months, it broke down for no reason. battery won't charge anymore. i had to make a refund. i still love samsung though.

But what if one wants a tablet just to read the news, surf the web and generally have a lightweight experience? Wintel lacks good tablet apps, they're heavy and generally worse as tablets. Great laptops though...

I think they are getting ready for a total renovation that will make competition to the new surface and pro ipad
Anonymous, 12 Feb 2016I'd rather buy an Asus tablet since it's closer to stock Android compared to Samsuck's Lagwiz.... moreFunny you say that; my brother's Asus tab is way slower than my Samsung tab. I guess Samsuck exists only in the delusions in your head?

Thinking whether to go for Tab S3 or ipad air3. I think Air3 is better option coz of future updates.
I regret buying S6 edge. Iy comes with free hairline scratches on the display. Never a Samsung Flagship again..
Wish they would make only Note tablets. The tabs offer no worthy differentiation from the competition.
Solun1, 12 Feb 2016Funny. Tab S2 was a downgrade over the original Tab S. That is far superior even to the Tab S3... moreGood to know that my Tab S is still better than S2 and S3 and with better screen ratio.
