I was waiting for the Tab S2 to come out so I can have latest model, but when I found out it was 4:3, I rushed out last week to buy the Tab S8.4 before they are sold out. It sucks that Samsung is trying to emulate Apple. They should have made 2 different models, one with 16:10 and a 4:3 one to appease the sheeple.
Smokey, 27 Aug 2015Does this tab got tv out & usb otg?Yes, and yes. You need adapter for both. MHL 2.0 for TV out and USB OTG for the other. The Tab S8.4 has screen mirroring, so if you have smart TV, you don't need MHL.
I have also same problem i used this tab s 8.4 but always auto restart its usually happen if the battery life is about 50% and i try to use this tab while charging it doesn't auto restart .is there anyone can help me on this issue is it mother board or battery issue?
My computer was hung out when i connected my tab s 8.4 to computer.Notification bar showed " unrecognized device is connected..... " and my computer was hung out and can do nothing.

I get 4.5 hours of screen-on-time with maximum, manually set, brightness and the adaptive display setting so I'm pretty happy.
Anonymous, 29 Jul 2015Why after three months,this tab always auto restart,annoying..I use this tablet for already 6 months and it is flawless. You probably got a defective unit.
This display is absolutely amazing and the gaming performance also is very good. Only thing i don't like is the battery life (i get about 5hrs of screen time in cyanogenmod 12.1, on stock is better but i hate samsung bloat)
Anonymous, 29 Jul 2015Why after three months,this tab always auto restart,annoying..Your motherboard is defective now. change it. There is no any single fault in this amazing tab. this tab is a super smooth. You should go to the Samsung center.
I am planning to go for this tab.should I go for exynos one or snapdragon one?which one would be better?
I have an lg pad 10.1 ... It has the longest battery good for reading. And basic use ... I can recommend this and also cheap but very good performance
This tablet is still amazing. A joy to hold.
Screen ratio is perfect and I still only need around 30% brightness on the OLED display.
I for one won't be upgrading to the tab2 even tho I'd prefer a metal frame.
