I think he is referring to chrome settings. There's an option to adjust text size. But I notice that doesn't work for all websites.

Why lei? My Tab S 8" is collecting dust as I cannot get use to the very small font in the browser. The resolution is just too high for such a small tablet and you don't have Android 7 nougat to be able to adjust the font and screen size. I learnt from here that better specs is not always good.

I was actually asking for my friend who is looking for a 8" tablet for reading and surfing Internet.

As for me I have a TAB S 8.4" wifi bought in Brisbane Australia.. exactly 3 years old.

And I am selling it at the moment.

My tab S 8.4 having flicking screen then it's will reboot itself. Done a few hard resets to no avail. Is it the motherboard going up lorry?
Battery connector loose. Common issue with this Tab S. Need to pry open the casing, disconnect the battery and reconnect will do. Be careful when opening. I cracked my screen while fixing mine. Use proper tools

Still using it. Battery still ok.
You can get the battery from Taobao if you know how to diy. Not expensive.

Battery still ok too.

Does Samsung able to replace the battery? When it come to battery and charger, I rather get from the original for safety assurance.

It's actually quite easy. Did a short write up on how to change the battery previously. https://goo.gl/PstiHN
