Price now is around

Only pen included. Don't know what's a good price but I believe more standard devices have better chances of custom roms

anyway i just hek and wacked, blew my tablet budget by x2. the seller included the usual full flip cover and the keyboard, but dont have the hinged backpiece of the keyboard set.

initially planning to hoot max of lenovo p11 (SD66x) for ~350, s6 lite imported ~380 or maximum of ipad 8th gen ~470... or wait for s7 lite or ipad 9th

p11 pro (SD73x) also going to run over 500++ presently anyway... lenovo also got their version of dex, but at the moment got less faith on them maintaining the updates or pushing for further development unlike samseng.

for Samseng old flagships tablets do they have those fked up planned obsolence updates (eg, makes battery life chui, slows it down)? my entry-mid a50 phone bought in late 2019 which i retired due to wonky cellular reception can hardly hold 2 days charge even in airplane mode throughout.

you guys encounter any issues using Smart View on non Samsung tv, or when trying to mirror a non-Samsung phone to the S Tab?

tried yest both yesterday like cannot work for Smart View.
Google Home sort of work for screen mirroring between tablet and tv but connection drops.
my pixel 4a can't seem to find the tablet as a display when scanning.

which 3rd party apps good to bypass?

read that smartview dropped its chromecast compatibility for a while already.

For those who own the keyboard cover, do you find the edges very sharp when holding the tablet with the keyboard detached. I'm going to switch to a book cover. Easier to hold.

All these kind of screen mirroring performance is so bad. I use USB c to hdmi. At least still can play game. Bluetooth controller

i am using book cover + separate keyboard cover. but without the keyboard cover's hinge backpiece, because thats what i got from the seller.

when need to use on the move, kb cover detached as flipping it on the back doesn't work well (accidental key presses).
book cover doesn't protect edges and feels a little annoying to handle the flap when mobile (either folded flat behind or folded in stand mode)...

am considering the supcase ub pro that has more thickness to hold, 'protection' and probably doing away with any front covering when using it on the move... also means cannot connect kb cover , gotta use my k380 BT keyboard

looks like gotta get a powered usb-c hub if i were to look to increase its utility
