Do you realize how bad the display is? 1024 was the original iPad resolution.


more watering down of product lines, TAB and NOTE was all we needed, we really didnt need another Tab line, F*cking stupid.


A S-Pen variant? To be honest, a Galaxy Note A or something would probably be more fitting

Yeah. Many people use tablet instead of expensive printed paper.
Low resolution may boost speed because android tablet is laggy in high resolution.
But 1024×768 is too low. It should be at least 200ppi.
Instead of camera, Sam should have added better display.
I just wish premium tab s is not too expensive.
