Why Samsung stop making the 8 inch versions? That would be so nice. Need to resort to the S2 for that now
I'd like to see a comparison with Samsungs nearest tablet competitor....oh wait, GSM Arena hasn't reviewed an Apple Tablet since 2015.
They're all over these though.
Fahd, 03 Aug 2018How does this compare to the Microsoft surface go? higher resolution, super amoled screen, longer battery life, more software availability. I can't think of a reason why Surface will be better. Past versions of Surface are buggy.
regs, 01 Aug 2018164 mm is a perfect width in a portrait orientation, but it's disproportionally way too tall. ... more4:3 is ridiculously bad for tablets and anything really. Basically the only thing that keeps iPads back still (apart from its closed os, but that is an acquired taste).
There is nothing, *nothing* that 4:3 does that 3:2 wouldn't do better. Even 16:10 is better in most things. Indeed being used in portrait mode 16:10 is slightly more cumbersome than the other too, but after almost 5 years of note 10.1 use I can see that it is easily accommodated too. In everything else even 16:10 is better than 4:3
But IMO 3:2 is the ideal. The easiest to use in porttrait, wide-screen still (for movies, YouTube, etc), best for reading (books are 2.83:2, which is very close to 3:2), etc.

Big computers Are only needed because you need speed and big screens because you need workspace and Also for visua effects.
There are things people need and there are things technology can deliver. The gaps between them is what leads to people having multiple devices. It does not mean people do not need a 'do-it-all' device. I mean if it can 'really' do it all, who wouldn't want it? the closest device that has come to being a do-it-all is the smartphone. When it solves the advantages the rest of the devices are giving, the other devices will disappear like flip-phones did.
the list is:
1) screen real-estate - if folding screens that can be pushed into smartphones with ease of use, tablets will naturally disappear.
2) Processing power of a Desktop / Laptop on your smartphone - When cloud computing becomes even more a reality and you can reliably work with the screen real-estate on your smartphone that screens to your computer / laptop at home or work, laptops for mobility will disappear as well. (P.S. : Laser projected Keyboards)
3) Smartwatches are here to stay - mainly cause all the activity trackers and sensors available and the ease of having notifications on your watch. It can become obsolete if all these can be incorporated into a watch strap and have my mobile just manage the tracking or communicate with the device. (P.S: battery life is a major reason they aren't popular yet. Its only natural I expect my smartwatch to let me use it for music without being it a strain on my battery.
I do NOT need a Pen. Make a stylus less version which would be far cheaper and sell a lot more.

These days, even their low end tablets got 2 major OS updates. For example, my low-end Samsung Galaxy Tab A 8.0 (with S pen), that arrived with Lollipop, got updated to Marshmallow, and then got updated to Nougat with Samsung Experience 8.5!
Does anyone know if samsung DEX supports keyboard+mouse+printer at the same time?
if not can I use an external USB splitter to connect them all?
Can you get true surround sound with this using just headphones or do you get simulated surrounds instead? Do you need a special headphone to get surround?
How beautiful it is of no use, we need Surface like Laptop with Windows OS but thicker to handle heat and performance, People and ad is all about Slim but not of use of people who really want a versatile working device, Ultimate is Surface device or build like it thicker and 2 to 3 mm will bring lots of differences in Heat dissipation and performance.
People will extra money will like to buy this kind for ShowOFF and few organizations will benefit who created app fro their business and centralize other than Android tablet spending fortune is foolish
I will never buy a Samsung tablet again. Got Samsung Note Pro 12.2. Only received one update from Samsung. a Best tablet with no support from Samsung. Damn you Samsung!
Anonymous, 02 Aug 2018Nope it's just late Steve Jobs and apple got "Post PC" wrong.
Now it‘s more like "Post iPad" lol..IPad sales tells you that you and gsmarena got it wrong.
IPad sells almost as much as the laptop market combined.
It is actually google that killed tablets though. They were in a course to eclipse PCs in total sales and then google decided that android was too open so in their attempt to push their closed source OS (chrome OS) they put the tablet market a solid decade back.
I mean they are the future still, we are just forced to use this ancient (laptop) design a bit further.
70% of what you do on a laptop is done better on a lightweight touch enabled device.
Using an ipad is a million times swifter and easier than a laptop. Where tablets lag behind is productivity but even in that they are making strides (office, pro audio apps and soon full Photoshop is coming).
Once again Jobs was right and if he was not die so young we would had basically forced google to follow him. Unfortunately he did die, ipad line kind of slumped a little and android tabs were scrapped for the much more inferior Chromebooks.
A sign of our times. Geeks are great to build things, very bad at picking future direction of things. This is mostly why we sorely miss a Steve Jobs figure in tech. Geeks are happy to misuse technology...
