Yeah, dun know what's with Samsung. Want sell premium price but dun give the latest and best specs like their phones.

Note 8 is even higher specs than Tab S4 with 6gb ram. And I do find my Note 9 snapper than my previous Note 8 too.
Partly because the flagship Android tablets are not as well specced as the iPads... while the mid tier ones are downright stingy with their specs... quite an interesting phenomena cos there are plenty of mid tier phones with very respectable specs...

I'm surprised that the Tab S4 isn't as snappy as the Note 9 given that my Note 8 is really very fast and smooth... it's gotten even better with upgrade to Pie...
So happen that new ipad air 2019 is coming to Sg in this week.
Guess that is a sign for me to go for iPad

Will lag a bit when it idle for long period. After warm up go back to normal. But still feel crappy because Samsung refused to use better specs for this thing

Current Huawei flagship tablet using Kirin 960 which is only equivalent to snapdragon 820/821 so it's also quite cui when compared to the TAB S4 835. I wanted to get the tab S4 to watch Netflix since it's using amoled but in the end I bought the iPad 2018 instead since the A10 is quite comparable to the 835 and it only cost 1/3 of the price and I get similar performance in pubg mobile lol.

iPhone and android phones definitely dun have such a big distance in performance as compared to tablets. Not sure what's the android companies' rationale in underpowering their tablets by so much

I like Amoled screens though. Tired of waiting for Samsung to release the S5E so went to look at Ipad air 2019 but I just don't like the resolution of the screen. My Mate 20X looks sharper

I spoke to xiaomi folks before. Actually margin for tablet is no good. Typically phone margin is better. Most android tablet manufacturers are struggling

Yeah, but putting such lacklustre specs, they are like giving up half the battle, making the already bad reputation of android tablets even worse.

Today,tablet user are using for media consumption... Though less interesting spec, they try to make up with other features (speaker, screen blah blah).

The productivity portion, I tried (keyboard)... Exp not as gd as window.

Games... Ipad is better optimised.
