I am a light user and this tab easily lasts me a day to go down to 65 - 70%. I don't see why it wouldn't last one day's moderately heavy use. Initially, when I loaded large pdf files in my tab, battery life was really bad then... because it used to lauch an android process called 'index service', which was a real battery drainer. I almost got mad over my new tab, thought about rooting it just to stop that stupid process from running. Then, I decided to see how much battery it can drain. I removed all my data, then loaded a 5000 page pdf. 'Index service' launched almost immediately and started eating battery. But, this time I did not force stop it and it continued eating battery for another two and half hours, draining me to 40% and there it stopped. No more battery draining during the next charge. It appears that 'index service' is an one time process which will drain you high when you load a large pdf for the first time, but if u allow it to run for the duration it wants to run, it will not bother you later. So, don't force stop it when it launches, that will not help. And another thing you should notice that this annoying process only does its job when the screen is on. So, if you are thinkin of putting the tab on charge with the screen kept off, that is not going to help either. Rather, start reading the pdf you just loaded and by the time you'll finish your reading you may notice the job is done.
Guys pls help i have been using this tab since 2 months ... and i should say that its the best device samsung ever made ...Simply superb .
but from last 1 week my tab is sufferi n g from super battery drain and unusual jumps of battery from one point to another like 60% to 40% in 5 min and then from 38% to 15% in 6-7 min....
and suddenly to 1% and switch off...
but when i connect the charger while its off while charging it shows that battery is 26 to 34% ...
i am not able to understand whats happening. .
is any1 else having this problem as battery drain seems to be a common problem.
Index service are the main culprit in my case....
Which one is better chipset GSMarena ? Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 or Exynos 5420 at this tab s 8.4 LTE ?
How is that effect at battery, graphics and performance ?? :)
I bought package of 4G LTE yesterday. The network signal show 4G (sometime H+) , the internet speed goes faster. This tablet supports multi - window as well..there are still many functions i haven't learned from this device yet.
In specifications this tab has exynos and octa core.but i bought samsung tab t705 lte with exynos quad core processor. I am very much confused. Seller is unable to explain. Please anybody can help me.Is it a china made tab with low specifications? I am in Pakistan.
using mobile data for internet and lots of cpu installed in this device. no doubt the battery will drain fast!
I have a problem with my Samsung Galaxy Tab S the problem is the bsttery drains so fast can anyone help me with my problem?
I bought one yesterday and it gets heated up quickly and shutdown. It took many hours to recharge again and then while using, program freezed and no buttons works even on/off button.
Mine has 4G LTE , battery 4900 mAh = not very good but not bad ( i cannot say battery drain fast , it depends on how the users use it).
This tablet is not dust & water resistant , no NFC . I like it because of light weight , thin , not too big (comfortable by travelling), 8MP camera and LED flash, Android OS, ver.4.4.2 ( KITKAT) that can support multi-lingual, micro sim.
Can u please run ur own review and opinions about tab s 8.4 lte battery life and performance then users could get an idea form the EXPERT.
Anonymous, 13 Jun 2014samsung copies apple. apple made finger print sensor technology in 2013 ;)Samsung is the best follower EVEN MORE as apple believes.BOTH are best in industry.

Mady kazmi, 13 Oct 2014Can we use Tab S 8.4 LTE as a phablet? As i am using galaxy mega 6.3 easily fit in my pocket... moreForget it. U can t use it as a phablet. It is huge and 420 g with its original foldable book cover. Anyway it does nt fit for ur jean. I m talking abt tab s 8.4 not the bigger one even. But as a tablet, rather not say, FIRST AMONG EQUAL S.
SammySong, 15 Oct 2014I contacted samsung customer service but the response was to reset which I am not so satisifed... moreUr tab s is under the warranty rooting may avoid the warranty. And always try to use recommended charger for recharge coz using different charger means u put ur self helplessness in the end. Just for ur information coz sellers like seeing we are doing it. SOFTWARE DAMAGE WHEN ROOTING. SHORT CIRCUIT WHEN CHARGING.

AleksTheG, 20 Oct 2014Hi guys, I'm using s tab 8.4 for month already, but few days ago battery nightmare started. I'... more100 percent agreed. My one also the same. Running real racing 3 and asphalt 8 in device memory. But battery consumes more for display and their touch wiz. I think this is Samsung and they wanna do something.
