Got mine today, SM-P205 lte version.
So far still toying around with it.
Pros:
1.Screen looks good, not pixilated, in fact Netflix looks good.
2.Overall its sharp and acceptable.
3. S Pen works as per normal.
4. Able to tap on screen to turn unit on.
5. Face unlock seems decent, slight lag.

Cons:
1. Speed is kinda slow, eg loading apps and installing apps.
Don't expect it to be blazing fast.
Mi max 4 is definately faster.
2. Screen brightness is not bright, resolution is good but it just seems too dimm for me.
My screen white is a little yellowish looking.

Overall I'm happy with the purchase as I'm looking for a low cost tablet with pen.
Especially the pen can be slotted into the tablet.

Where did you get it from and how much did you pay for it? I'm currently using the older Galaxy Tab A 8.0 (2017), but the S-Pen & higher resolution for this new tablet is very appealing for me.

I got mine from Lazada Malaysia. 939 MYR works out to be around $310. If you have a friend in Malaysia this is a great option.

Still waiting to pick it up from my friend.

Got mine in Carosell, pick up at one of their shops.
Priced at $336.

Screen display is way more than sufficient in term of sharpness and resolution at this price.

It's an export set, Malaysia.
So any issue can hop over to Jb.

Btw, battery could be better.
At 4000mah, it can last 3/4 of a day at most I guess.

Got this on Friday from LiteMobile.

Pretty good for the price. I notice the S pen is slightly laggy when using to draw though.

There's still a possibility that this tablet may *hopefully* get a release for the Singapore market. This tablet will be released in Taiwan on August 5, and hopefully it will be available to more markets as well. https://www.sammobile.com/news/galax...wan-next-week/
