Cool, better than ipad mini but get hot near back camera after 2 minutes run the tab then get hung up.
For some reason this Amoled tab does not have corning glass so didn't the previous tab 7.7. don't understand why? My tab7.7 screen cracked the day S8.4 was launch and I had no idea why it cracked may be I kept mac book pro on it or my maid dropped it in my absence.....
But having a corning glass may have protected it bit longer

I would suggest to invest on this as it does not add much thickness and maintain its slim figure
Anonymous, 17 Sep 2014Does this support multitasking, I.E. starting a YouTube video and then letting you load another app?Actually, all Android device, start from Android 4.0 ICS, do multitasking.
However, the multitasking capability is very rely on processor power, and RAM size.
As long it has good CPU (well, at least quad core), and big enough RAM (recommended up to 2GB or more), it will allow multitasking.
For less powerful device, Android OS will close the apps to allow other apps to load, even the apps is still remain on Android task list.

Ghost, 27 Aug 2014Hi Peeps
Ok so i just bought this tablet. i thought i would save some of you guys a bad buy... moreAre you sure cheapest tablet can play all file?
I have a few cheap tablet, which doens't recognise many file format as well.
Those tablet also has issue playing high compression format.
Other small format just playing fine.
I would suggest install 3rd party media apps would solve those issue.
I did it with my cheap tablet as well.
manoj, 16 Sep 2014I request to all the owners of tablet S to specify which video files are supported to play on ... moreThe default player just support less audio codec, such as AC3/Dolby Digital, FLAC.
You can easily solve these problem by installing 3rd party media player, such as MX player, which support full range of codec or video file. (RMVB, .MOV)
The tab is fully capable to play very high quality video file, which need much more processing power to play.
im new galaxy tab s user
i just wanna know when on desktop screen of tab s when we slide the icon is there any rgb color interupted the icon thanx
I request to all the owners of tablet S to specify which video files are supported to play on the tablet(for the guidance of perspective buyers)
Well, tested the OTG, it can detect USB drive.
(In fact, all my device can detect USB storage)
However, no luck to run on external HDD.
May be my external HDD need more power to drive.
besc, 14 Sep 2014which is better Samsung galaxy note 3 or Samsung galaxy Tab S 8.4 Lte (net performance wise an... moreDepend on what you need.
Screen wise, both are incredible.
Performance wise, of course Note 3 is better.
The Note 3 has better camera, processor, NFC, and S Pen.
The only different is Note 3 is a 5.7" phone, Tab S are tablet, with full phone function.
You should put S5 into comparison as well, with updated better processor and camera.
But, please forget about S5 water resistant ability.
which is better Samsung galaxy note 3 or Samsung galaxy Tab S 8.4 Lte (net performance wise and screen)?
Well, the only drawback are no NFC, and no Gorilla Glass, no S Pen (well this is not a Galaxy Note device, but no big deal either)
Apart from that, it is a very capable phablet.
It has the same IR Blaster, Finger Print reader, WiFi Direct feature, Group Play feature (downloadable via Samsung Store). It can paired with Galaxy Gear as well.
The screen is QHD resolution, which is the highest resolution available today. The high 359 ppi make you can't see any pixel at all.
In fact, it is a good AMOLED screen, with much less saturated color than other Samsung model, which to my surprise, I like it.
The overall 6.6mm thin form factor make it look good, but also make it a bit hard to hold.
Game like Asphalt 8, Real Racing 3, can be played smoothly without any noticeable frame drop or lag. Video playback is just that awesome.
The stereo speaker is side firing, would be nice if it is made to front firing.
The camera has flash, and 8 megapixel is adequate.
It is thinner than a Sony Xperia Z Ultra.
The Micro SD and Micro Sim slot is at the right side of the tab, with flap to cover the slot.
All in all, this is a much better buy than a comparable tab/phalet like iPad Mini (Retina), Tab 4 8.0, or Tab Pro 8.4.
My reviews after a month of used
1.Battery life is good
2.Performance, fast n multitasking(3gb ram)
3.Price + looks luxury/exclusive appearance
4.Portable rather than larger tablet
1.No Corning Gorilla Glass (can apply 9h tempered glass)
2.Front camera were not so natural
3.my tab's home key button were loose n squeaky
4.must buy the full/book cover, the back cover were fragile.. Be aware if you really want to take care of this piece of awesome
5.some apps is not compatible such as whatsapp (directly at play store.
Whatsapp? Not a problem , i already installed it on my tab s 8.4.. Download the app/apk at the whatsapp's website then download 1mobile lite and install as usual in the 1mobile lite app. Thats what i did.
