Seems none of you have bought it or have a need for it
I am older, with arthritic finger and poorer vision. The keyboard is amazing with a numeric keypad. The font is great and easy to read with hardly any strain on the eyes
The weight is ok.. heavy but less than my 15" laptop. The handle is great when you need to get up and put the tablet beside you .. on the floor ....no need for a side table to trip off
The applications are great. The screen is OK for TV but not great for low resolution pictures.
I've had it for a day, and I thing it is perfect for the senior and aging population
Henrye, 24 Nov 2015Let me educate you a little. To give you an overview, there is no tablet or monitor that size ... morewhoa chill, Mr. Smartass,
i never said i didnt know about what you said.
are you dumb or what?
if Samsung puts QHD on a 5.1", then it's pretty logical if they put at least QHD on a 18.4" device.
even their 12" tablet has higher resolution, if you really didnt bother much about pixelation then 720p on a 5.5" would be perfect for you.
Anonymous, 24 Nov 2015Eduacate and evaluate yourself first. First of all there are 2K displays about 19-20" and 4K ... moreI think you need to be re-educated. There is display of 2k and 4k around 19-22 inches but all of that are either computer monitor like Apple or TV. There is no such TABLET with that kind of display. 8k is 'soon' to arrive, not now, not commercially either. We are talking aboit availability as in 'NOW'. You are making a fool of yourself. 4k display will make the price of tablet that size pretty much unaffordable anyway. You need to think of the costing too. Your ego might want nice 2k or 4k display but what the point if it is price over $2000 and no one buys it. My advice, don't be too greedy.

First of all there are 2K displays about 19-20" and 4K ... moreFirst of all, theres no 1440p monitor at 20-22" currently. and no 4k monitor under 27" other than the display on iMac. But regardless they shouldve put 1440p display on this one

First of all there are 2K displays about 19-20" and 4K monitors about 22 - 32" and soon 8K monitors .
so more than 200ppi already achieved...
By the way...
PPI means Pixels per inch, that means pixel amount per arround 2,8 cm2.
You see not much difference between firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com but there is huge difference.
QHD version has about 400 more pixels per cm2 than FHD version.
Pixel amount of FHD @ 18.4" = 2073600
Pixel amount of QHD @ 18.4" = 4096000
Difference amount of between resolutions = 2022400
2 million pixel is nothing for you...
Lets go f.ck some birds arround huh?
AnonD-111717, 22 Nov 2015Samsung's Logic.
Put QHD screen on a 5.1" device.
but only 1080p on a freaking 18.4" device.Let me educate you a little. To give you an overview, there is no tablet or monitor that size have more than 200ppi ever existed even if it is QHD display. For example, Dell XPS 10 with 10inches display only have 155ppi. Samsung Galaxy Note Pro 12.2 only have 247ppi even when using QHD display.
If Note Pro was 18.4inches the ppi would be only 164ppi anyway. So, if Galaxy view even use QHD display with 164ppi, there is not much difference compare to when it is using the 1080p FHD display with 120ppi.
All you get with QHD display is more battery drain and more complain from customers. Even with a 4k display, at 18.4inches you get merely 240ppi. If Samsung do use that 4k display, the price will go approximately over $1500 for the giant tablet and no one will buy it. Now you understand?
2 completely different products! you'd think the screen size would make that obvious!!!
What is the point to buy a tablet ?? The tablet is a bigger smartphone . What can you do on a tablet and can t on your smartphone ??? nothink . If you want somethink portable powerfull buy a notebook , if you want somethink even more portable buy a smartphone . Android is good for a phone but you can t even compare with a windows made for noteebok , pc you can put 100gb ram and 50core and still nothink

A tablet with low pixel density... I was waiting for 4K resolution, 240 ppi density and IPS LCD display!
sohail, 19 Nov 2015waoooo what a flop itemOthers will follow samsung in making large tab. As usual Samsung show the way.
sucks , 19 Nov 2015how can you do online chat when there's no front camera!!! Samsung better know what they are doing Look at the pictures, only front camera
This is a good product to replace laptop and desktop used for only surfing net or watching youtube...only drawback of this product is the ppi is too low to get immersed even for short period
