Which is why this Tab is the real revolution. It runs Ubuntu for Pros (at less than 1 pound!) and android for casuals (I.e. Microsoft word, phtoshops, etc, anything the casuals would use).
Only issue is that I runs on 8GB of ram. I have workloads that require at least 10 GB before slowing down to a crawl. A missed opportunity for Samsung espec as Note phone *has* 12 Gigs.
Hope the Korean version would be the real tab s6 (a bit of how Korean Tab S4 was the real tab s4). I.e. 12 gigs of ram + 1TB of ultra fast storage...
A lot of people need time to understand how much more useful a tablet can be than a pc. The only reason to still like my pc is for the experience it offers but the fact is that I do everything on my iPad. I havent composed a document or done a presentation on my pc for several years. When my pc breaks I will not get a new one. Its nice the retro experience and retro programs a pc offers but the truth is its useless.

Your laptop is thic for a reason. It needs way too much cooling space, it has moving parts and of course it can't outlive anything without moving parts.
All I retreat about this new Samsung tab is the low ram. IMO 12GB + 1TB EMMC would be perfect for work. Modern flash is as fast as SSDs practically, plug fast ram and a SoC better than low end laptop soc (akin to mod range) it would be great for $800.
Even w 8GB and 256GB is still good enough. But yeah, eventually Intel won't be able to compete with those slimdevils...

My thicc ugly laptop will outlive these silly tablets with close to non repairable hardware.
Lol, note that has absolutely no use of it has 12gb of ram. This tab that is basically a laptop (Linux on Dex I.e. Ubuntu on ARM) tops out at 8GB. Samsung logic...

Except due to running ARM it will have better battery, would be muuuch more portable, oh and it will turn into a tablet when you need to consume content.
After this and the new iPad, laptops would increasingly become the past. Already Ubuntu ARM does most of anything I need on the go (I am a developer) and for casual ipadOS is enough too (for laptop use)...
Anonymous, 02 Aug 2019Surface is better.Intel and 1.5 pounds, yuck.
This one runs Ubuntu+Android (both better at their respective field than anything Microsoft), has better soc, is lighter, cheaper, battery probably lasts more (due to ARM). It is not 2014 anymore, surface pro is the past...

The pe... moreWhat? isn't the 8CX twice the power of the SD 855(at least the memory, based on wikipedia)? What do you mean by the performance gap is negligible? We don't know how powerful the Adreno 680 is compared to Adreno 640.
There is HUGE Market for extremely powerful SoCs for tablets (like the Apple A12x). If Samsung can capture that market, it has winner.
Maame Raggae, 02 Aug 2019The best Android tablet now, I wish they made tablets with flagship SOCs long time agoThat's right. Why compromise when people are buying iPad Pro? Samsung's stylus is great, KB is better than iPad's, and we get Android here. Qualcomm just needs to figure out 10 bit video lag though.
Anonymous, 02 Aug 2019Surface is better.But not repairable.
Even by MIcrosoft. lmao.

Best tablet or not for that price anyone can buy a decent laptop which is a lot better in my opinion.
Or some kind of a very large phone such as A70 with 6,7 inch screen.
if only qualcomm or Samsung make chipsets specially for tablets like apple ax series
O S, 02 Aug 2019True! I wish they made a Pro version with Snapdragon 8CX to better challenge Apple iPad Pro.No SD 855 is a better choice imo as it is better supported and optimized by developers. The performance gap is negligible. Finally a good Android tablet after years ...
Maame Raggae, 02 Aug 2019The best Android tablet now, I wish they made tablets with flagship SOCs long time agoTrue!
