Useless piece i will stick to my TAB S2. Not worth buying this one. I was hoping high.
If there was an 8" LTE version with the same specs, I'd buy it!
TechLord777, 27 Feb 2017They actually just intended to find a balance between the large and the small tablets. And wit... moreNo. Its very simple. Samsung did not think at all.
Apple did not make a mini. So they stop the 8 inch as well.
Apple did not have a pen slot. So they drop that as well.
Apple make quad speakers. So they add it.
Then to make you buy it, they make less battery capacity so they can make it that tiny bit smaller & lighter then iPad pro 9.7.
Samsung copy Apple, this device stood out like a sore thumb. Bad decision Samsung! You should have a 8 incher, this is not iOS, but Android. Give android fanboys what they wanted!
sigma, 27 Feb 2017Should be an 8 inch version. Wrong decision Samsung.They actually just intended to find a balance between the large and the small tablets. And with that aspect ratio, the screen's diagonal adds more to the tallness, not to the width, because 4:3 is more suitable for large tablets.
Well I have galaxy tab 4.0 3g 8inch, and I think I have to buy this s3
i got tab S2 it is amazing device and am using it every single day ... light .. fast ... i was waiting for Samsung to come up with something new but seems like since 2015 to now 2017 nothing much changed also that pen is useless to me .. so i`m going to keep my S2 with no upgrade this year
I will keep my tab s8.4 (2014) as some others until Samsung bring back 16:9, robust cpu and 4k display
GoNS, 26 Feb 2017this is it .i will keep my tab s8.4 (2014) for another year or until Samsung bring back 16:9 o... moreYour wait will be forever. Old format never comes back. Its like waiting for monochromatic phone to come back.
4:3 aspect ratio is good for ;
- Reading an article (e-book, e-magazine, browsing)
- Gaming ( 16:9 is only for phones, 4:3 is perfectly fit for gaming on tablet, i don't wanna hold a big tall tablet on portrait position or too wide on landscape position, 4:3 is balance not too tall or wide)
nima , 24 Feb 2017Is this tablet has spen?Indeed. Galaxy-Note-Tablet users have been waiting for a device like this since the NotePro of 2014 or Note 8.0 (not to be confused with the coming Note 8 smartphone of 2017) from early 2013. This is their first considerable and compareable successor.
The TabS1 could already have delivered 2160p video recording due to sufficient processing performance, if the resolution of the image sensor would be slightly higher or a wider image sensor. Alternatively, they could have enabled full-sensor video recording, where each frame 3264×2448 pixels, which equals the full image sensor. Processing power is also there for HFr video recording and 2160p or HFR on the front camera.
when will they start selling this tablet?i can't wait to see this tablet.
this is it .i will keep my tab s8.4 (2014) for another year or until Samsung bring back 16:9 or 16:10 screen ratio , plus 4k display
