Would you guys suggest getting the 8GB version if I'm using it mainly for media consumption and light gaming??

The price like never go down one.....
The extra ram won't make a difference to your use.
It'll come in handy only if you game heavily, do emulation or have many web pages open

I don't know if it's tempered glass but I compared naked tab s6 and a s5e with tempered glass both running same game and the tab s6 just looks better

I wouldn't, unless I'm using it for productivity(word, excel, chrome). Otherwise I'll save the $200 and get 6+128 instead.

Usually, yes. The one without tempered glass will look better because there's less reflection(thinner overall glass surface) which makes the colour look nicer. You can try testing it in a pitch dark room to see if there's any real difference.

Interested to get one, any difference if i get a US or Korean set apart from the warranty?

Does it come with the keyboard or is it purchased separately?

Thinking to get it to use it as a laptop as home

No difference. All use sd 855. The preinstalled bloatware may be different. As is the starting language when you first boot up for setup

It can do almost everything a laptop can do. Can play games a lot better than Intel integrated graphics. There are tricks to make it behave as much as a laptop as possible

Can use as a temp 'laptop' when you go outside, but it's too small as a permanent laptop at home lah

It's possible. USBC dock with HDMI to monitor. With keyboard and mouse. even pair it with a game controller

Just need basic excel and word apps (if available? Or just use googledrive apps), movies and surfing. Not really for intensive gaming or video creation.

Possible if you are using DeX with a monitor, but if just use as a laptop on Tab S6 itself, it's too impractical

Can use Android version of Microsoft office, Google suite or if you know how to, libreoffice.

Dex can run without monitor mah. But basically the problem is, Dex is not a full multi tasking environment.
