PeteyB, 06 Aug 2014Get the Tab S much better device and not limited like apple devices And it is a full functional phone.
I'm really impressed with the screen, especially when watch some of video sample. And the specification is quite amazing too. But, I feel doubt to buy this because I see many people sell it approximately after 2-3 weeks since they buy it. I wonder why. Is this tablet not good enough to have ?

I do own devices with Snapdragon 800 such as the Xperia Z1, Note 3(SM-N9005), and even the Tab Pro 8.4.

I'm quite sceptical on the battery life, on normal wifi usage the battery drains from 100% to 18% in 173 minutes, and it took 55 minutes to charge from 18% back to 100%, anybody can advise is this considered NORMAL ?
