The flickering, the battery going suddenly to 1%, the up to 40%, the signal lost. May I ask you if you were able to fix these problems or if you keep having same problems?

I am having the same problem with my tablet. I just bought this few days ago and I don't understand why it easily drains even without using it all the time. I just leave it and just use it when i want to go online. Im just so sad because of the battery. I love the tablet but it disappoints me when I think of the battery life. I already used the power saving mode but still the batt life is the same. I've also decreased brightness, closed all unused apps, but still, the the effect is the same. Kinda disappointing thinking that the battery is 4900 mAH. Should have bought galaxy note instead. I used that before and the battery even lasted for days even when i'm using it most of the time. Pls help me. I want to enjoy the tablet but it's kinda disappointing me.
I am a user of lucky enough, use the sign and the performance is great, better than others I have ever had. I have the Core octa- android version to Brazil. I do not understand because of the problem of many with the fast drainage of this model. Believe me, Tab S LTE is the best tablet existing.

my battery is draining fast, i already lower the brightness, close some apps. i play COC i think 100% full charge playing COC will last only 1.5hrs. and always happens that when my battery is in 15% i will shut it off and when i power it on the battery will go 40% that's weird.
I did just buy the unit 5 days ago. Full charge and last me for 2 days 9 hours and still counting. I am a light user (just use to surf net & facebook, sometimes play COC too)... Overall, I am quite satisfy on the performance. Just sometimes, i found it will a bit hot (at behind when playing COC)...
my battery life is fine
to maintain battery life, lower your brightness to quarter brightness. with super-amoled, the LED is bright enough even during daylight.
close any apps you don't use. don't leave it in the background, else apps with a lot of videos will use a lot of energy and make the tablet hot. happened to me once.
AnonD-8543, 02 Nov 2014Guys pls help i have been using this tab since 2 months ... and i should say that its the best... moreI had exactly the same problem. Take it back for a battery replacement and sofrware update. This will solve the problem , but battery drainage is still very quick. I cannot understand why it consumes so much battery. Even when it is on stand by mode.

As soon as I bought it and started to use it, I had evident problems regarding the battery. Very quickly i noticed that the tablet got hotter than any smart phone or tablets i used in the past. Then it was easily clear that battery cobsumption was very fast. The battery percentage also jumped suddenly in less than a minute by 10%. Charging could start at a lot higher percentage from what it showed when i started charging it. I sent it for service twice and they sent it back to me stating that the tablet works right and according to manufacturer's specifications. The third time i sent it they said that they changed the battery and did some updates. After that, there was no overheating and no abrupt jumps in the battery consumption or charging. But i still believe that the battery performance is not that great, considering the price and the specifications of the tablet. It consumes about 15% of battery in an hour. I also noticed that there are quite a few people who mention similar issues with this tablet. It is really a shame, because this tablet did catch my attention and i thought it was a great tablet. That is why i changed my budjet planning and bought it.

I even contacted samsung Dubai and given the device number. But the advice was to go back to the store where I bought or to nearest service center which I was just frustrated for endless arguments.
And if you read all my opinions here, my bad experience with this tab starts with battery, then next camera flash stops working, and then the network signal disruptions which will flicker the screen and eventually device will restart. It happens once the battery is below 20%
And If you google it, i'm not the only one who camplains the same about this tab. I am a samsung fan but recently their product quality is declining.
Battery was fine as i dont play that much of games however at times when i open an app and the back button do not work and i have to wait for it to come back before i can close an app and even going back to main page would have to wait....i am not too sure whether it is a prob from the software or what gonna get it fixed but other than that it was fine....
