I would say just go for it..it's really an amazing tablet.

But I think Tab S7 is coming in a few months time, so maybe u should wait to get S7 or the S6 (if price drops)


CheerS!!!
True, s7 coming. Maybe I just wait. Thanks

I thought battery going flat after a few days standby is very good already..lol

I don't know if the reviewers are using a LTE version or not. But if it is just Wifi only, this is very poor battery life. I've left my devices on standby and connected to WIFI all the time, and I have never seen them quit on me even after a week. Sure there will be some level of battery drain, but not to this extent.

You need to consider that the price is more than 2x for the new keyboard cover. The cheapest Magic Keyboard for iPad Pro 11 is 439 bucks and 519 for the 12.9 inch version. The cost of the 12.9 inch keyboard cover is about half the cost of the basic Tab S6 with WIFI only.

Yup. I think different segment la. Samsung is for those value for $$ and loves to DIY and install apk kind.

IOS is for those atas.

No matter what, there should be a lot of ways to improve the crappy and unreliable stick (or vacuumed?) to the back cover. Also, Apple sold at this price probably because it's well, Apple.

Because Apple knows their customers, mostly affluent or business users will buy it. Which is why they can get away with a 999 USD monitor stand.

I like the fact they are able to magnetically stick the S-Pen to the back of the body, coupled with the back flap to prevent it from falling out unknowingly.

I lost my M-Pen Lite last night. Eff my life. Will need to spend $68 to buy a new one when I get my pay next week -___-

Yah. My fault actually. When I left office i noticed it was sticking magnetically at the side of my tablet, but knowing it will drop if I move the tablet with significant force (i.e. if I have to run for a bus or something) it will drop, instead of putting it into my bag, I lazily slotted it into my jeans pocket.

Probably dropped on the bus when I propped my legs up against the back of the seat in front of me.

If only there is an add-on accessory like an attaching pocket to my keyboard case or something

Yes..the Samsung keyboard is expensive.
You should really consider 3rd party brands.

I'm currently using BOW bluetooth folding keyboard. Serves me really well. I have only charged it twice in about 5 months. I would say my usage of it is medium. Battery life is surprisingly good for this unknown brand.

Do a search on the TaoB website and you should be able to find it. I think I bought mine for about S$35 or S$40.

Consider if you will be typing a lot on the go on a physical keyboard or will the touchscreen keyboard be sufficient. Personally I feel not many people will actually use a physical keyboard on the go. Its just there as a good to have accessory, in case you want to type.

Bro, did you buy the M-pen Lite from Huawei or online?

Agree with GhostZM... the Samsung keyboard is really very expensive... not worth it... there are many other cheaper and just as good keyboards on the market... as long as it is connected via bluetooth, should not have any issues... you can even get keyboards with a small trackpad if that is what you need...
