Ya, tablet market is smaller and more sluggish than smart phone market but it doesn't mean a new tablet model should comes with older SOC while at a much higher price that close match to the latest SOC model ... put in other way, if M5 is priced as M3, definately will have the surprice element to capture a much better market share ...

In fact, Huawei is pushing hard to clear most its 960 powered phones stock since last Nov in China market..
I agree that pricing is poor. To be fair, I never considered getting an Android tablet considering I get much better hardware with Android mobile phones. I only owned a Google Nexus gen 2 tablet previously which was very reasonably priced.

If I need a tablet now, I will happily purchase an iPad that is so much more powerful and capable. It costs more, but the A10X in the iPad Pro will certainly perform significantly better than the Kirin 960 or Snapdragon 820.
