Great tablet of me. LOVE the screencolors and clarity, super thin, and performance is good.
Recently Marshmallow 6.0.1 was pushed to my tablet and works great, after of course shutting off all the bloaty "updates" that restart all the stuff I don't need.
I have the WiFi only version. It has replaced my personal laptop at the house iwth a Logitech keyboard/case. Also use the tablet as a GPS in the car with downloadable Google maps and tethered to my Note 5.
I love this tablet enought that I'm considering picking up an LTE model off of ebay for use with Google Fi.
I bought the tablet Jun/15 in Switzerland, but I use it in Brazil. Normally at home, but travelling once a week about 90 Km to my country lodge with a 14 Km unpaved and rough road access.
I use it daily about 3 hs mostly for reading books and accessing online news. Not any complaints about display, storage or battery and quality overall.
Only wish is some less bloatware on it, it took time to get rid of them. And the ability to replace the battery, when someday it comes close to the end. This I really don't praise.
I updated to 6.0.1 in Nov/16 without any problems.
So I am fully satisfied, think it was a great buy and would buy it again... if it would come with a replaceable battery - or for the same price with more developed capabilities then the actual successors.
I have owned SM-T800 for about 26 months and enjoyed it until WIFI and Bluetooth started working intermittently. Coincidentally problems started right after Marshmallow update.
If you are considering buying ANY Samsung tablet, google "wifi and bluetooth problems Samsung". Thousands of owners like myself have an ebook reader, not useable as a tablet.
Dont buy, POS.
I have this problem to, i dont know what to do,i 10 minutes my tab restarting minimum 2 times..
ud, 28 Sep 2016i got the same problem, do you get any resolutionsThé tablette came too hot,it for that everithing close, clean thé memory , befor the update never problem ....
I have a Kitkat Samsung Galaxy S Tab 10.5 Its phone memory is showing as 498 GB. When connected to a computer it shows only 4.5 GB . Why this mismatch. This results in memory shortage when we copy files from external source beyond 4.5 GB. Clarify how we can access full memory of 498 GB
I have a problem, my tab make restart every moment. When I'm playing a video or something else. Is this a software problem or hardware? Thanks
applied the software update and tab is stuck on pulsating Samsung logo. tried various forums and samsung support (no help) so went for factory wipe and reset. No change. on the recovery menu on line starts w/ 6.0.1 so i assume the marshmallow up date is not being removed by the wipe/reset. anyone have any ideas on how to resolve this?
Happy to see the Marshmallow update for almost 2 year old Tablet..Samsung did not disappoint me.Not much of changes but battery seems to have improved considerably.Got an OTA last week..Still waiting for Androiud 6.0 update for my Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 edition coz even that Tab has the same Hardware.
video quality 👍
camera is also good
battery backup is not good because of 10.5 inch super amoled screen
I'm happy with my Tab S 10.5, it's been two years and still I use it every day, I hope it will get Marshmallow,but even without the update it's still a great tablet, my S5 just got the Marshmallow update, so if my tab gets the update I would be happy with it
Hello! Anyone knows when will upgrade to android 6? And if you do in Greece...
Disappointed, 14 Feb 2016It screen mirrored to my Samsung smart tv until the tv updated a few times and now it can't. B... moreAfter every update for any product even Apple you need to wipe the cache. It a conflict with the old and new.
ryan, 29 Feb 2016this is the real deal until it break jaw ass with its dumb wifi and bluetooth bullshit. about ... moresame issue
Owned about 14 months ,hardly used and both wifi and bluetooth died, total hardware failure. Of course just out of warranty so Samsungs response, bad luck. Buy a new one! It hadnt even been used in over 4 months as I was overseas and it was in drawer at home. turned off and still had small charge so no issues there.
Been happy with Samsung purchases earlier but not now.
Kishore S Shenoy, 04 May 2016I know, the charging cable is loose. Make it slightly disaligned at the charger point. After s... moreI had similar problem, I took it to there office and the almost changed everything ba3, motherboard and charging port it worked better and faster tho m back to square 1 the tab suddenly refuse to come on or indicate if it's charging.
We had this tablet for about 2 years. I was heavily used by my daughter and it always done its job. Never goes slow and very good built and stability. It is a very powerful tablet and is very easy for using Streaming as YouTube or Kodi. Highly recommended !
The best tablet I had, it can sometimes be a little slow but really better than the tab 3. Hope to get marshmallow soon and fix everything. But really nothing to complain, great battery life and general performance.
I have had this model but always traveled downtown by foot. Then I sold it and bought repaired VW Golf 2 - amazing! It has radio, USB memostick, big loudspeakers 200W, no 3G but gearbox with four shift, 5 places, one wheel, Xeno lights... amazing and invaluable.
