I am really disappointed. It restarts randomly especially when around 50% battery is left. I understand it's a manufacturing defect. Can't sell it. Robbed of my heard earned money
SOURCE, 01 Mar 2016My Tab S has gotten worse and out of control. Everytime the battery reach 50%, it will keep o... morePlease read my yesterday post. Samsung people do not admit they have a problem with this model. Try to keep a power bank with you to plug the tab in when flicker starts, when at home just plug it to mains or to your PC. I guess flicker reboot will stop immediately. It is a Hardware not software problem as some people think.
My latest finding with the flicker reboot phenomenon:
The deplorable thing is that Samsung service would not admit this defect in at least some if not all units from this model.
I bought this from the US since I used to be a Samsung fan, though I am also an Apple consumer. I thought I bought a flagship...it turned out to be Titanic!
In my latest search and finding this flicker reboot is not OS related, it is simply defective circuitry, may be defective battery system. Can everybody try this:
Connect the unit with power supply whether mains or powerbank, and this nuisance stops, period.
Aren't Samsung service people aware of this?
Anyway I don't care any more. This is the last mobile or tab from Samsung to bd paid for.

Anyone, please help me to use its infrared blaster, because i think it doesn't working.
Remember to season your batteries! Full charges only from +/- 5% to full at least 3 times. My battery lasts 3 days at least! And right now I'm using it as my phone (no voice though). Also Airplane mode while you are not using it or overnight helps save yer battery!
well no offence but the people who thinks previous version wasnt better than its not right , well here i bought Samsung Galaxy TAB S 8.4 , Not the LTE Model but the Model which supports Sim-Micro Sim, i Used it in every style with roughness and rigidness but the TAB never gave me any problem , and for the users who think the TAB S 8.4 will upgrade to Marshmallow soon , Samsung always give update last becz they improvise the Version. i assure u all that LTE Models are good when u have a good wifi and all but the Sim Card Version is same as ur Andirod Mobiles.
First of all my english is not good sorry for that so

I bought my tab in August 2014. Just used for 3 month, I had problem with the battery. I charged 100% but then the battery show 50% and kept dropping. I sent to Samsung Service Centre and they repaired but problem continue. So I sent again to them for repair. This time they change a new battery. Only used for a year now the problem starts to come back.
Yesterday night my battery showed 97% before I went to bed. Work up to find my battery only left 20%. This already happens since 2 days ago.
I will never recommend Samsung Tab to anyone and I won't buy another Samsung product again. I'm very disappointed with Samsung service too.
I have owned a samsung galaxy tab s for around 18 months and im having serious problems with the battery life and time taken to charge the battery. Very disappointed to say the least so will not be buying any more samsung products as i think that apple are better quality.
I bougth this one almost two years and i dont have any issues about it...i love it....just dont download too much application.....
I bought samsung tab s 8.4 a year ago. Only a month after my purchase date, i had the battery replaced coz it was defective, well thankfully it was free of charge since it was still within the warranty pd. And only last night another problem occured...wifi and bluetooth don't function at all, meaning cant be set to ON. I had it checked by samsung's authorized repair technician and i was quoted by almost 12 k for the repair. I got really irritated as i am still paying it with the 0 installment plan. So frustatrating, my greatest mistake...buying a samsung product. And my one year warranty just lapsed, imagine a unit/tablet this expensive lasts only for a year. And please take note, i realy take extra care with this tablet, bought the original samsung casing/housing, with screen protector, and followed all tips there is just to possibly increase its useful life BUT all was useless.
