AnonD-174989, 31 Aug 2015A Step backwards. I'm a happy owner of a Tab S 10.5. Yesterday, visit my friend an wanted to s... morewow... cant believe u see ur friend just to show how supreme the qhd quality was .... how looser his air 2 compares urs ~
I personally always prefer horsepower over screen length any day. The CPU combo runs circles around the older tab s. Finally, I can't say Samsung is coping Apple but like it or not this is the direction that Google wants to go. I'm in for 1 in two days!
Disappointed with Samsung. Didn't like that they reduced the resolution, changed the aspect ratio, and used last year's exynos chip. So went ahead and bought the Xperia Z4 tablet and wow its amazing. 10.1 IPS screen with 2560x1600 resolution (beautiful accurate colors), Snapdragon 810 with no heating issues, dust and water proof, weights the same as Tab S2. Runs really smooth and fast.
A Step backwards. I'm a happy owner of a Tab S 10.5. Yesterday, visit my friend an wanted to show him how to watch QHD media on YouTube in his brand new Apple iPad air 2, just to see how small the upper and lower bars make the media look... and it cannot even see the video in full res. So, this format is no good for watching videos...Everyone seems worried about processor and GPU speed, wich are no real deals from while ago.
I like higher pixel density, also no buttons on front panel, r.i.p..
A choice between this and the OG Tab S is quite though. First, the speakers are in the worst position ever (the Tab S speakers had perfect placement). Second, where's the LED flash gone. Third, 16:10 IMO is a better choice for tablets. It's standard for movies (ish), similar to a laptop screen, I mean, 4:3 on a tablet isn't particularly enjoyable, and I wonder why Samsung shifted to this more boxy aspect ration. Decisions, decisions, decisions...
Not sure why Samsung was always playing catching up game only with last year old iPad/Air. They should make a new 2015 Tab-S2 flagship tablet with hardwares much better then last year old iPad Air 2.
Or was it Tab-S2 not Samsung 2015 flagship tablet? If so, then my advice to potential customer should passed on Tab-S2 and wait for the Samsung next flagship tablet model.
