Saw another bad review also.

Seems that in terms of All Android Tablets currently offered, Huawei Mediapad M5 seems the best choice to go.

M5 is a good android tablet. It too offer desktop. What is lacking is the samoled.the screen look washout.

The review seems bad, conclusion of the review, don't buy it.
The reviewer wanted to use as a laptop.
Today, the challenge for android tablet is the app suppor5...they are simply not suppprted (unlike apple)...which leads to the poor review....
It is not sammy issue...but rather android.
Thr desktop mode is to be use fot productivity..(thus uf the type civer has mouse pad would b great)

For me, i will switch between dex and std interface.
For the ms office, dex
For media and games, std interfacr

I think one big problem now is there is rumour you actually need to subscribe to MS Office in order to use it on Dex. If true, the DeX will be almost useless

It isn't, but that's going to add one more thumbs down for people who are considering. MS Office is the saving grace of DeX at the moment when there are limited Dex optimised apps around now

It is not a rumor. To be able to use Office to edit documents for free, the device screen size cannot be greater than 10.1 inch. At 10.5 inches, the S4 and iPad Pro no longer qualifies for free use, i.e. Editing.

As mentioned, this is the link that highlights that editing is disabled on the free version if the screen size is greater than 10.1 inch.

That would make it no point to get this tablet anymore with the most useful productivity apps disabled in Dex

To be honest, I have never used MS Office on my mobile devices so far, whether they run on iOS or Android. For Android, I use OfficeSuite Pro, and Polaris Office on my iPad. They get the job done as well, though they are not free, they have a one time cost, and don't cost as much as a subscription based MS Office.

Yeah, but depends if they are Dex optimised. The 2-in-1 feature on Tab S4 will be the main reason if I want to buy this, I definitely dun want to pay that price for a pure android tablet with such disappointing specs.

Out of curiosity, does the Tab S4 come with Dex, or is another separate purchase like for their mobile phones? I think it's a separate cost if I am not wrong.
