  1. I'm watching this video on the Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro 8.4 tablet today in July 2020 and it's still a great tablet. It may only run Android 4.4.2 but it's still very usable. I absolutely love the 359 ppi screen on the Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro 8.4 screen which is still one of the best looking screens I've ever seen on any phone or tablet even today in 2020.

  2. Samsung's stock ROM seems laggy but with something like dirty unicorn rom, I bet the tab pro is amazing. more HP and is cheaper right now. I could careless if Samsung doesn't update the tab pro… the community is. I'll prolly be buying one in the next few days

  3. if you are watching this in 2016 and you have the Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro 8.4 inch and you never received a update and you're waiting to get on well I'm sorry that will not be happening Samsung stop supporting the Tab Pro Series altogether you will never receive a update and that is a shame or such a beautiful tablet so you need to look into rooting your device and throwing on CyanogenMod 13 6.0 point one ROM you will get a Nexus like experience zero lag and I mean absolutely zero lag I call it the super Nexus 8 I am using one right now running CyanogenMod 13 nightly 6.0 .1 marshmallow and it was the best thing I've ever done to this tablet I mean this thing is blazing fast with CyanogenMod and it's just like my Nexus but better but you can't just throw CyanogenMod onto your tablet without downloading a Google application package watch some videos and learn how to root your device of the best videos you should watch are from root Junkie he shows you how to root you're 8.4 and everything you would need to do but his videos kind of old and there are updated versions of CyanogenMod 13 nightly find the newest version but follow his Steps step by step

  4. Though the Reviewer fails to state it. My guess here is the Pro Tab here is of the garden SM-T320 variety. i.e. WiFi only, and on that note, a decent comparison to the Nexus. However (If you can see where I'm going with this!), Samsung thankfully have other sub-options like the T321 (UMTS 3G), and the T325 (LTE 4G), both of which have Voice. The Nexus 2012/13 even with a 3 or 4 G, ugh not so much. So the Galaxy Tab curshes the Nexus, on that front.

    Though I would wish that Google would make a decent 7 or, 8" Phablet though. Unfortunately it seems though that market solly belongs to Samsung, or a number of chepo Chinese brands which use closed source SoC like Mediatek, or Rockchip.

    Which brings me back to Sytem Updates. Here we are at the close of 2015, and the Tab Pro, is still stuck on Kitkat 4.4.2. There is some mummers about if the Device will ever see an official Lollipop build or not. This may or may not fly with a cheapo Chinese Device from Fleabay. But shame on Samsung for not supporting what was, and is still quite a decent, if not expensive piece of hardware.

    Something only made worse by the inclusion of Knox. Whos only purposes in life is to prevent you from installing a Custom ROM. Well unless you really don't need Knox to start with. But, flashing a Custom ROM will block you from ever using it at a latter time. It could also in my view affect the resale value of the Device as well.

  6. I've had the nexus 7 and I loved it! Undoubted it had one major flaw that ruined my whole tablet experience, how bad it's battery was and when it died it would be almost impossible to bring it back to life. When the tablet completely died, I went with the note pro but I feel like like it's too big (going to need to buy a keyboard)

  7. I prefer the Tab Pro 8.4" over the Nexus 7. I've had both (used both extensively) and I prefer the bigger screen, better power and more features on the Pro 8.4. The only downside was the lag, but with another launcher most of it was gone. Games on the Nexus 7 don't fair so well, due to the slightly outdated processor. Also, the Nexus 7 seemed to lag a bit on screen rotate.

  8. Asking people with a higher budget to go for the Tab is outright retarded and vice versa. What's the point of watching your video if people have to make a purely budget based decision in the end?

  9. The only thing I don't like about the nexus 7 is the Bessel in the sides. Its too big and should be smaller. Like when I'm playing games like Minecraft pe, I have to put my hands on the top instead of on the sides.

  10. It seems water reflextion on road is supported on Galaxy, but not on Nexus. That effect makes a quite a difference when you play NFS MW.

  11. Months have elapsed since this review. Samsung's Tab Pro 8 can be purchased as low as $279 at Best Buy since the introduction of the Galaxy S 8 tablet. Don't know how long this sale price will continue, but if the price tag of $399 kept you from purchasing the Galaxy Tab Pro 8, now is the time to buy. I loved my Nexus 7, but it was destroyed in auto accident 9 months ago. I decided to step up the technology for another $50-$70.

  12. I think if I will put Cyanogenmod or MIUI on the Galaxy Tab Pro 8, it becomes a awesome and cheap tablet. MY Nexus 5 has the same chipset and it never laggs. Stock Rom 4.4.4. I compares page loading speeds to Tab Pro 8.4. My N5 is around 2-3 times faster. 

  13. Samsung makes the best tablets bar none- they go head to head with Apple. Apple has a better OS. I prefer IOS to Android.

  14. Had the nexus 7 2013 loved it but the screen was too small for me. Thinking about purchasing the tab pro 8.4. Likely going to disable the home screen magazine ux and other ui elements that cause that lag, did the same to the S5. Way to much bloatware on Samsung products.

  15. Best Buy is selling the tab pro 8.4 for $329 and you get a $50 gift card, only this week!!! i was so happy the price i got it for, thats only $279, worth it!!
