My tab s3 is struck on August 2017 security patch sinces ages here in India. Its so worst when rest of the world is having like atleast Jan 2018 patch. This is flagship tablet for samsung here in India and this is how Samsung treats its loyal customers.
Ignore the price, buy the keyboard bookcase, this tablet is the best ever table with complete phone functions (unlike the competitors: iPad or Zenpad 3S no call or sms). I have using this tablet for months and satisfied
It took just two days to realize that the Samsung S3 was very nicely packaged crap at a phenomenally exhorbitant price. Basically, it is a sales arm for Google apps. Not only that, but I couldn't even create a Google account because Google insisted that I already had one - one that my wife inadvertently hijacked from her Mac - I have a PC. When I attempted to contact Samsung support, I was informed that I would have to wait in a queue for about 8 hours for a technician. If I wanted to do a chat with a technician, I needed to create an account. I'm sorry, I don't want spend my life dancing attendance on a computer. The Samsung will be returned for a refund today, or, if there is no refund, I will trash the unit and dump it as trash.
for some reason most (if not All) Android manufacturers have stopped making flagship tablets (and switched to low end) just after the release of snapdragon 820
the only flagship table manufacturers left are Apple
I prefer Android because it is open source (easy to customize and upgrade) and less bugy

The ipads pencil has an internal battery you need to keep charged, which was a pretty big dealbreaker for me. The tab s3's stylus uses the same tech as wacom tablets, and is wirelessly powered when it gets close to the tablet screen.
Can anyone please tell me which one is better for drawing, the tab S3 or the iPad pro 10.5 with the Apple pencil? How is the accuracy, parallax effect and pressure sensitivity of the s-pen compared to the Apple pencil ?
Upgraded because I walked my sister's dog. TabA wasn't up to being used as an axe against attacking dog, it didnt notice. All survived save the tablet, dog owner upgraded me. Can't complain.
No theme store !
No Always on display !
Only 32 GB internal memory !
All same like Tab S2. Not an upgrade !
No MHL support for connecting the tablet to hdmi tv. However it does connect to USB drives
Pls why ur Devices doesnt have inbuilt RADIO? Had it been I went through ur Devices specification before I bought I gues I wudnt have bought cos of this RADIO issue

AnonD-704657, 15 Dec 2017why is it so slowwwww????You're probably too fast. Try slowing down your pace.
AnonD-678216, 23 Jan 2018This tablet, for those that don't know, is available in a wifi only model which comes with 128... moreYou can get the LTE model if you want so the Wi-Fi model isn't the only model of the Tab S3.
TabLord17, 24 Jan 2018can games be moved into the micro SD card?? Yes, it's possible to move them.
Dearest quality seeker knowledge enthusiast gsmArena followers.With respectto $ 500 price that hopefully comes down worldwide ,this is a good tablet according to the specifications. But it could have been much more unique one with Bluetooth 5.1 +its auxiliaries , NFC ,infrared , radio plus rds ,at least 8500 mah battery,OTG ....Hopefully with uncle Samsung endeavor in next S4 tablet series we feel the changes plausible with 6 gigs of RAM and 128 gigs of ROM plus a dedicated memory slot to have the best most perfect tablet of 2018 and even 2019....My dearest readers. These are merely friendly suggestion to Samsung as a neutral friend whom likes perfection that may uncle Samsung accept it through its public relations....Thanks all plus gsmArena that follow Justice Rights of people's interests....
