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.. :)

Solyfor H., 03 Oct 2014Dear guys, My name is Solyfor. I just bought Samsung Galaxy Tab S 8.4 LTE this Wednesday. I... morewhat is it when you say "to hide folders" is it necessary to hide folders and why? having used many times an android phone, I didn't come to hide any folders. could you please elaborte on that? I might need it in future.
use easy battery saver download from play store it will help with battery saving
I use this not for gaming nor anything else but internet surfing. I am very much aware of its amoled display mode and power saving mode, and I also make sure no background app is running before the standby mode and while running another app. The battery really sucks! there may be a bug or something because I've tried charging it for like 30 minutes from a low percentage like 15%, then the battery becomes 100%! All the time, it happens.. charge it for a few minutes then remove from the socket, the battery is 100%. C'mon! It ain't normal! I brought it already to the repair center, nothing has really improved! aside from this cheap tablet (performance-wise), their customer service SUCKS! It's the worst!!!!!! - Philippines
The battery life may due to high resolution screen, and processor.
I try turn on power saving mode, check whether can improve battery life.
My name is Solyfor. I just bought Samsung Galaxy Tab S 8.4 LTE this Wednesday. I have a question related to "Hide Folder/Items", does this phone can hide Folders, Items (Photos, Videos, Documents....) or we have to dowload an app?
Please kindly advise.
Anonymous, 24 Sep 2014The great problem with this tab is you won't remove your downloaded apps to memory Card by an... moreThis is a great device. Of course battery life depends on one's own usage ability. I have only one complaint regarding this tab and that it becomes heated up after a few minutes of usage. Is anyone else having the same problem?

guys if you wont good battery life go to ipad air or ipad mini 2 w/ retina ok :)
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.
what battery timing exactly it has?
i am a heavy user with wifi and 3G,
as tab S has 49000MAh battery so will it pass 24 hours+ with normal use ??????
those who are using tab S please share your views about #BATTERY TIME of GALAXY TAB S 8.4
