Don't think it matters. Sell and buy again sure incur losses
If it is for tangible/ significant improvements, perhaps. But in this case, the extra 2GB is really like a good to have feature. Mobile OS generally don't require that much RAM to run in the first place. It is the usual more is better mentality in this case.

Those who upgraded from a phone with 6GB ram will not experience any noticeable difference when they move up to a 8GB or even 16GB ram. If games run smoother/faster, its because of the faster ram, not because of more ram.

Another dilemma is worrying that when the Tab S7 is launched in a couple of months, the keyboard will not be compatible. That is if the S7 is upgrade-worthy 😪

I went for the higher spec model because I just like bigger numbers and my budget permitted it.

Anyway paying via instalment so price difference is actually negligible.


CheerS!!!

Most likely is August. Tab S7 that is.

If you want to try Huawei, MediaPad M6 is enough to suit your needs. No significant lags when playing Mobile Legends: Bang Bang on it, but it is very heavy and tiring.

If you aim for MatePad Pro, though, I would prefer it if you aim for Tab S6 since both are around the same price. The stylus placement for Tab S6 is better too you won't fear losing it as opposed to just sticking it topside for the former.

And if the desktop mode is anything similar to MediaPad M6, from Googling, DeX is way more polished.

Though I have listed so much shortcomings of MediaPad M6 as compared to Tab S6, I am still lovin it as it is able to achieve my minimal requirements: gaming, multimedia, note-taking, illustrations and online learning.

The only gripe (against all Android tablets out there now) is the lack of enthusiastic tablet supported apps. In the past you could efen find tablet apps sections in the Android Market. Now, those "HD" version apps that existed (like Cut The Rope HD, PPTV HD and whanots) have long since been removed.

My only semi solution for not having portrait restricted apps to appear properly is by launching them via desktop mode. Tried those force landscape apps but doesn't actually look well.

Still, it all boils down to your personal preference. I'm just giving my personal views.

Spending over $1000 in ringgit is always better than spending almost the same amount in S$.

The question is if you need it urgently? If not then you can afford to wait. I actually don't think there will be a meaningful improvement between S6 and S7. Sure the SOC will likely be better, i.e. SD 865 vs 855. In both cases, these are fast SOCs and unless you run some benchmarks or planning to use it primarily for games, you should not feel much of a difference.

These sort of special keyboard case is something that I normally don't recommend people to buy because your concern is spot on. Compatibility is usually a problem, followed by the question on durability. Worst part is that it cost a lot.

Yes I actually bought a Microsoft bluetooth keyboard that only cost a fraction but did not use it after some time as found it troublesome to switch on both keyboard and bluetooth then connect each time I want to type. Not to even mention having to charge keyboard when one nowadays already has so many gadgets to charge. The additional 1 or 2 steps may sound simple but doing it multiple times on daily basis actually turns out more troublesome than it sounds.

If Tab S6's keyboard is anything similar to MediaPad M6's, then good news for you. You don't have to wait for connection time. Just snap the tablet onto the keyboard you can immediately type without lag time.

Aaaaand... These keyboard types no need charge. They operate by drawing power from the tablet. So no on/off troublesome actions nor the need to pair it.

And Tab S6's stylus charges itself the minute you stick it back to the resting slot.

Anyone with the Samsung Tab S6 keyboard cover tried removing and sticking back on again? How is it holding up? Was about to get one from Carousell but my concern is losing the adhesiveness. Or am I better off to spend 40ish more to get a new one and ask a shop to stick it on for me?

Does Samsung warranty cover the adhesiveness and provide one-to-one replacement if it fails?
