Anonymous, 21 Aug 2016Nope. If you want a Samsung tablet with 6.0.1 update go for Tab S2 or Tab A 9.7. Tab S is too ... moreWhat an unnecessarily rude reply!
Plus you were wrong! "Deal with It.
Although I agree that Android should get updates until the hardware doesn't work anymore, it still doesn't take away from the fact that the Tab S 10.5 was the first Tablet with such a large AMOLED screen (something unheard of at the time), it had a flash for it's camera (something else that set it apart from other tablets).
In the middle of 2017, I can still pull out my Tab S 10.5 to watch a film on a plane and be confident that I've got the best quality tablet screen on the plane! (Not bad for something that was made in 2014)! 😚✌
I've been using my Tab S daily since August 2015, so 2 years. I love it and I will continue to use it as long as it is viable. The only complaint I have about the Tab S is the refusal by Sansung to update the OpSys beyond Android 6. This is the only area that I see Apple having an advantage over the Android users. Wake-up Samsung and stop planning obselence into your products and then imagining that your customers aren't noticing.
Shagrasniper, 23 Nov 2016after marshmallow update at first everything was fine, but after a few hours of usage and tra... morewhen the logo appears and didnt boot up you should immediately turn off the tablet by pressing and holding power button and volume up or down button till it poweroff otherwise it will break something mine did this thing but luckily i did this and it is now working fine.
Alfred chirwa, 07 Jun 2017mine is just restarting itself and am not enjoying it.how can this stop?after updating to marsmallow it will restart itself mine did too but this problem was solved by itself try do restarting through buttons.

Had this in 2014 and thought it sux. Got it out the draw 2017 and updated to nougat and starting to enjoy it
I would say this tablet is really good but mine is stopped working I think it have some water damage on it in the home button sometimes i touch my fingerprint sensor while my fingers still wet and also I think the cpu and gpu also broke but still good tablet you know I'll surely repair this tab cause it part on my life too btw it's only 2years I used this tab and broke down next September I will be 4years
This tablet is neglected in upgrading to Android Nougat. Where in fact, specs of this tablet is even higher than other tablets which already updated to Nougat. I'm just saddened of the fact that Samsung did not push this to the said update. Still using this tablet though it was forgotten. Hope Samsung realize that..Not to be unfair to the user of this abandoned yet still sophisticated tablet and still can match to the latest tablets in the market today. Wake up Samsung!!!!
i am in china and i have presently ordered one of 128g internal memory, 4g RAM.. do you think this genuine?
I have my 10.5 tab s for 2 yrs...still look gorgeous and work well....
Jason, 15 Dec 2016Is it safe to update to the latest marshmallow version? We have two of these tablets and both are now updated to android 6. We haven't had any problems.
Jason, 15 Dec 2016Is it safe to update to the latest marshmallow version? Yes.
Had my OTA update now for a while with no ill effects whatsoever. Will keep this outstanding tablet fresh for quite a while yet.
BTW I will say my Tab S takes an awful long time to charge, this was the case before any updates. Will/can 'fast charge' ever come via updates on an older device or is this a hardware thing?
after marshmallow update
at first everything was fine, but after a few hours of usage and transferring a few files from the laptop, i decided to restart it (it takes forever to boot with the samsung logo on screen) and after ages of waiting i get a note at startup (process system isn't responding) + the wifi don't work anymore.
clearing cache & data (through recovery mode) didn't help either.﻿
