The very best android tablet on the market for only $699. Cheapest place by a long way. Includes Samsung's S pen and Samsung Dex.
Damn that's a massive discount. Samsung tablets are like iPads, hold there value. Just purchased a 11" Ipad Pro too last week off Trademe to replace my Tab S2 8"…bummer.
And I almost brought a used Tab S3 off Trademe today for $450….
Great if you know what you're getting into with Android tablets, but people should consider the base-model iPad as it's nearly $200 cheaper
Curious what your point is here? :) While its true that Ipads seem to have better apps available more suitable to the tablet form factor opposed to android apps being more phone targeted, this is still a high end device designed to compete with the IPAD pro which has a considerably higher price point than this sale price? This is of a very premium build and has one of the most powerful SOCs of any tablet on the market. It includes an S pen with pressure sensitivity and a desktop like environment for multi tasking similar to PC (Samsung Dex). With the market share of android devices being significantly higher than IOS devices the usability of the android operating system is familiar to the majority of smart phone owners. If you are referring to performance of android tablets in general then you have to consider this is a high end tablet which should outperform the basic IPAD with most tasks. Android tablets are typically tarnished by the cheap android tablets (sub $200) out there on the market which do not perform well and lack the build quality of IPADs
The biggest problem always with the iPad is the lack of storage, and the $$$ required to move up to the high spec model. Apple devices don't play nice with USB storage, so there's little choice other than streaming, which isn't possible when travelling. Also GPS is only included in the cellular version of the iPad, which costs more $$$.
This tablet is ideal for watching movies on the go, with MicroSD card expansion and the best AMOLED display from Samsung. After all tablets are made for media consumption, not productivity. Android on tablets do kinda suck though, I would admit.
I don't disagree, I've owned several Android tablets over the years and there are many benefits and uses cases. But I've seen people getting themselves into the situation of having paid top-dollar for an Android tablet expecting an iPad-like experience, specifically the number of apps which are designed for the big screen — and Android tablets just don't match up toe to toe in that regard.
