Rooted my Tab S 8.4 LTE (unlocked network as well) in Nov 2017.
Running Android 7.1.2 Lineage OS ROM.(klimtlte)
With Deathly Auditor have also overclocked CPU max speed to 2.1 GHz.
What a great Tablet now. With a Samsung 256GB SD card this thing still smashes the opposition coming out today.
Has been a fantastic servant, now enhanced by the mods, I'm glad I took the plunge and went Root route.
Has been stable for over a month now.
Who cares about a warranty on 2014 tablet nowadays? Plus with PIA app installed zero chance of falling foul of KRAK hack now.
Love my Tab S 8.4 LTE.😍
Guys, I'm very disappointed with my Tab S, it is so laggy, I already reformatted it back to factory settings, still so laggy, and my main problem right now is that my Google Play Store cannot update nor download any apps, is anyone having this problem as well? care to share any solutions aside from reformat? Thanks...
harshana.nj, 24 Oct 2017Hi, I have been using Tab S 8.4 LTE for 2 years now. It has an amazing display, vivid colours,... moreI had same issues during the warranty period, so I got it repaired under warranty( had to replace mother board and the battery) and it has been fine for years since..
Hi, I have been using Tab S 8.4 LTE for 2 years now. It has an amazing display, vivid colours, great contrast. Camera is high quality. Speakers good output. You can make calls. But you cant use it like a normal phone, because it has serious battery issues. Screen flickering and restarting occurs when battery is drained, so limit usage time. But after two years, I'd say if i bought a phone and a laptop separately would have been a better choice instead Tab S 8.4 LTE. But i must say again, Tab S 8.4 display is really impressive.
Equinox Hydroid, 18 Feb 2017After dowloading marshmallow update a couple of times i cannot install it an gave me errors i ... moreSame here..i think its system memory is full. i saw mine and its only 38mb space left and i think it cause my tab s 8.4 slower and so much laggy
Alexander, 16 Apr 2017Is it so that they come with different CPUs?Yes they do, Qualcomm Chipset with 4 cores and may be slighly better graphic performance, or samsung's own exynos chipset with 8 cores performance is same for both varients but exynos runs cooler and gives more battery life. Qualcomm should be officially available in USA only while Exynos rest of world except USA.
Anonymous, 18 Apr 2017I want to know charger specification.USB 2.0 output 5.3V olts, 2.0 Amps Charging time around 2.5 hours for this tab
Rocky, 22 Jul 2017Update version is no good to me .so I need old version how can I find I use a custom Firmware on tab s which is so much better than samsung's touchwiz
I do not recommend, same problems as commented below and lots more. Servis, if I can call it even like that, was not helpfull and not profesional. My sister has same model and she also complain on battery, system and screen. It looks like that they wasn't much carefull while creating this tablet. Shame that I spend so much money on something I can not properly use... I do not recommend and probably will never buy any tablet or phone from samsung.
Gel, 17 Apr 2017Flickering problem solved by turning power saving mode but sometimes still flicked and restart... moreI had very bad experience after purchasing this tab...screen flikering , shudden change in battery %, network issue, auto reboot....what not faced many problems....only one solution for all these problems is battery replacement....after battery replacement my tab is working perfect
My tablet was working perfectly until i did the upgrade to 6.0, now my battery percentage is always at 100%. How can i fix this? I have done a factory reset but it still hasn't fixed my problem.
You quote this as being compatible with 256gB micro SD. Will it work with Kingston 256 GB UHS-1??
Just about to buy this model and would really like to know
