Guess what! my current tab 7.7 which was the first super amoled screen tab stopped working after screen broke mysteriously this morning - no proof but looks like new maid dropped it or put hot food container thinking to be table mat in its thin brownish cover. Two & half years used it without any issue. Bought it for SGD888
Right time to buy this S8.4 as replacement, it is cheaper (SGD698) and much better then 7.7. Only thing I would miss is the metallic frame of 7.7.
I don't understand what's the point in having a a tablet with 6,6 mm thickness and a battery of only 4950 mAh.
Galaxy tab 7.7 had a battery of 5100 mAh and Lenovo Yoga 8 has a battery of 6000 mAh.
I would preffer a higher thickness and a better battery.
Hope Samsung can also make a windows 8.1 version. Had a play around with an 8" one that has a pen and was really cool. Would love to see a manufacturer like Samsung jump on board. Android and IPAD don't stand a chance with these newer power friendly tablets coming out lately that also include full windows.
When is it coming out? Cant wait for it to land in South Africa. I hope Samsung will bring it in the Country unlike the Galaxy Tab Pro.

LCD screens are headed to the dustbin - OLED is the wave of the future.

They have phone telephony, do they have multi color Led notification?
Anonymous, 13 Jun 2014why all those tablet have built-in battery? why can't they make one with removable battery?what would you do with a plate sized battery?!
Can you confirm the subpixel matrixes for each? Anandtech says RGB stripes for the 10.5 and diamond Pentile for the 8.4.
Nice. But I hope the price won't be more than $430 for the WiFi only version. Will sell my Note 3, buy an S5/S4 mini and this. I love Samsung. Finally can put my Tab 7.7 to rest now.
This is an eXtra ordinary samsung... brilliant galaxy s5 then galaxy tab S...wow
