Everytime the battery reach 50%, it will keep o... moreProblem is fixed.....for now at least. Has been a week without a single problem (flickering, freezing, restarting), will see how long it will last under 1 month warranty from Samsung Service Center, hopefully no more problem.
As stated by Samsung Service Center:
* Problem: bad battery connector for most/all Galaxy Tab S 8.4, worldwide!
* Solution: Re-solder/re-joint the bad battery connector, using soldering iron, done in 5 minutes or less.
* Price: around $6 (USD) for non-warranty tablet
But still, very bad QC for such premium product, especially it's hardware related problem. Please pay attention, Samsung!
Samsung is probably the worst investment I have had since smartphone began. I have a Galaxy Tab S 8.4 T705 which was bought April 2015 from a gadget store inside a mall here in the Philippines. In which later I found out was also one of their authorized service center. Just this February 2016, it just suddenly started running into problems with the LCD. It suddenly had the yellow tint on the whole display that you almost could not read anything unless you manually set the brightness to max.
So I brought it immediately to the store where I bought it from since it still has a warranty. But alas, to my dismay, my warranty only covers the service. Nothing I could do so I just let them check my tablet. Initially, the technician said it could be the motherboard. I was told to leave my tablet for further testing and it would take about less than a month till I get it back. So I obliged, filled up some forms and they took my contact number. A week after, the technician I have spoken to called me and told me that the problem was with the lcd display itself and not the motherboard that they have to replace it which would cost me Php8,500 for the lcd display alone. I gave him the go signal because I was really anxious to get my tablet back. Almost half of the time, everyday, I do my work from that tablet. But what could be worse? The technician called me the next day and told me that my tablet originated from Singapore and that they had to order the lcd from Samsung Singapore that might take a month before they would receive the part they will order! This is really infuriating!! How low quality Samsung's product is. Despite how well I had taken care of my tablet. Never been dropped, installed with tempered glass, and encased on an Otterbox defender series ballistic case since day one! I'm never recommending any Samsung product to everyone I know or to anyone!

It wouldn't happen when plugged in but if using battery with anything under 80% I would get these odd vertical screen flickers then it would freeze and/or reboot itself. I had to send it it under warranty (2 weeks left) and they fixed it. If you are under warranty call the Samsung number. It takes a while to get to the right person.
My Tab S has gotten worse and out of control.
Everytime the battery reach 50%, it will keep on flickering & restarting by itself non-stop till it runs out of battery and died. I literally can only use my tab from 100% to 50% of the battery! Really Samsung? No solution??
Quality control really sucks for such a premium product!
Anyone here experience the same malfunction?
AnonD-493371, 26 Jan 2016u have the latest OS. Lollipop is such a problem. Seriously!Do you know if lollipop causes problems on other samsung devices except tab s?

I love the tablet. I have it since December, I had almost all models of Samsung cell which they took full advantage and now opted for the S Tab 8.4 LTE.
Excellent choice, I love taking pictures and does it very well even at night. It is very light to make and answer calls.
I prefer the Tab S before the Tab S2. I'll wait what bring the S3, I hope include the flash.
They should only improve and focus to manufacture better battery (8000-10000 mAh would be nice) and why not, include a Spen.
here in the philippines, things are so much easier...rooting, variety, good prices....USA??? what a F%$king joke. I also tried to root my note 2 over here (philippines) and they wont even touch it. too many security issues that make it impossible.
I sent my Tab S to Samsung support shop in Saudi Arabia and they changed the motherboard for free in just 4 days, and it's working better than before now :)
open back cover just reset all cables inside your tab just like my tab.
I was Found Tab S 8.4 lte Different Problems Solution. If you are face problems please on power saving mode...All Problems and Errors Will Be Clear In Some Seconds.
