Good tablet but go for S2 if you dont need stylus
15 May 2018
if you dont need the stylus, go for the tab s2. Tab s2 is much lighter and sleeker and easy to carry around. if you must must must have the spen, this is your only choice in samsung tablets. the downside is that the pen cannot be inserted in the tablet or automatically attached, so i always fear i am going to misplace it somewhere. i end up keeping the spen separate at home while i travel and that makes me wonder, if i should have just gone for the tab s2. overall, the performance is good, there are no overheating issues, the tablet is heavy and bulky and you would not like to hold it for long duration.a kick stand would be a good investment , which again adds bulk. the screen is just marvelous and if you dont have a sim inserted and watching movies on this, the battery just seems to last and last. i was amazed while i watched my series on a 4 hour flight, the battery just went down by 25% (airplane mode). the Spen does come in with variety of tips (and a tip remover tool) so if you place a tempered glass or screenguard on it, you can change to the hard tip for a more smooth experience. overall. i like it!
