I would say... There is a battery error on the tab.
The wrong battery info is affecting the charging, and also the battery life.
Hope Samsung come up with a software update to resolve the issue.
babare.baba, 29 Sep 2014I am a light user and this tab easily lasts me a day to go down to 65 - 70%. I don't see why i... moreHey thanks for this info. Me too is so frustrated with the OVERHYPED BATTERY LIFE of SamSUNG Tab S.
I bought my tab S 8.4 two days ago and battery really sucks. Charging is really wierd. I observed the charge went sometimes from 65% to 100% in a second? come on!! Battery drains so fast. I did hard reset and wipe out data but still the same battery life after reseting.
Today I leave it playing music to fully drain the battery, hopefully will fix battery issues after recharging.
I'll post my observation later.

In my case, it doesnt heat up like mad, just that you can feel slight warmth at your palm while using it. But i guess maybe because its thin or stuff like that (not an IT guy). Correct me if i'm wrong.

I am using this light Tablet too. I totally agree what you said.I really like it because of less heavy, thin and it has everything that i need such as 8MP camera , LED flash, kikat version, good battery, good browsing speed but unfortunately it doesn't have NFC.
Anyway thanks to Samsung. From Mo (Cambodia)
My laptop has only 4gb of ram. My gf has this and it has 3 gb of ram :'(
i just bought it too. i love the slimmest of this tablet.
everything is great
So i bought on MONDAY the 8.4 LTE .. So far so good.. I use it for Heavy Gaming,Heavy Surfing,Music,SMS,Selfies,etc..
Battery Life = 9/10
Graphics = 10/10
Audio = 10/10
Camera = 9.5/10
Overall = 9.5/10 (Almost Perfect)
So thin.. Light Weight.. So easy to bring anywhere.. The premium Feels.. comfortable grip.. :))
Though i have a problem.. The charging time is only my prob it takes a while but if it is full already it promises a long batt. life..... But that is not a big deal.. Anyways..Idk why others complain about the battery life..
Best tab for this year (for me).. And i greatly recommend it.. :)
Cheers! (From Philippines)
