Good price from a quality made tablet, and at least it has a properly balanced resolution for a display on a 10 inch tablet.
#2
cold from me after what they did to my S7 nerfing the battery life with a ota update, because they where so worried about the battery's exploding note fiasco, shocking company that i will steer well clear of in the future.

Can you recommend anything with 10inch screen?

To expensive for an Android tablet. They also lag.

iPad Air 2. By far better apps and you can throw any video file in vlc and it'll play where as Android struggles with high quality files.

£200 ish quid more though. So I'd expect it too frankly. Anything else around the Samsung Tab price point?

paid 55£ with O2 refresh so cold for me.

Yeah it's been cheaper but at the moment if after a good quality 10 inch tablet this a good deal, have some heat.

What a load of turd! I have one of these and it's a great piece of kit. I've been playing multiple 1080p60 x264s in Plex and it doesn't even hint at lagging or stuttering. It sounds like someone is making judgements off past experiences with older versions....

Hevc x265 or 10bit mkv files also? The main reason I got an Air 2 was because it can.

I got an Air 2 EU model for around £300 last year from here. You could just buy it but I personally wouldn't, that 16gb memory is to low for apps aswell.

I scored one from the O2 refurb deals, that price was a freak deal and shouldn't have any impact on other deals being hot or not. That said I don't know if this is a particularly good price or not, I don't think I'd pay £200 for one of these although it is pretty good.

Performance wise it's not even close to say, my S7. But it's decent enough for general tablet usage. Never struggles with browsing, using the Microsoft Office suite, I don't play games a lot but all I've tried have been good, and for video content, the only thing it doesn't handle is x265 10-bit content. All other 1080p is flawless on it.

WiFi is occasionally weak on my Virgin Superhub, about as good as my S7 and not as good as my Dell Venue 11 Pro which is only wireless n, not ac.

No tablet has a 10bit screen. so even if a device can run x265 10 bit files then it will only ever display at 8bits = pointless.

ya dont think that will happen again :(

The cheapest tariff they have it on now is £4.99 a month, so even when it comes back into stock way overpriced.

True, but if that's the format your files are in which your other devices can handle, this can't.

And I know some people will say well you can always transcode, but why spend the money on hardware that can decode and then recode media, rather than just spending it on a device that can play it?

my galaxy has played any high quality video with many different files I have through at it with no lag what so ever just like my son's iPad air 2 so I don't know what your doing wrong.

recode software is free and easy to find and only takes minutes and with 128gb card you can hold as many as you like.

If it already can decode x264/x265 files on a hardware level, the bitness of the colour space doesn't matter, its down to the app.

Well it doesn't play 10bit x265 without skipping and glitching in either Kodi or VLC, if you know a setting to change to get it to or software that can play them I'd be very grateful.
