Best in-store price at the moment. Low stock in most regions and out of stock online, but if you're close to one of their shops, it's a great deal. John Lewis will price-match them (and now you get a free case too!).

This is the best android tablet available at this time, with an amazing screen that blows the competition away. It recently got upgraded to Lollipop.

No, it's not, I have the 10.5 and even that's not the best. And the 8.4 update was for the US LTE (Verizon) version.

the UK did get the lollipop update and its one of the better versions of lollipop I have seen and the tab runs pretty smoothly on it.

as for better tablets, it all depends on what you want. its not going to win on speed, battery or waterproofing compared to the z3 tablet. but its true, the screen is insanely good and is its shining glory.

sadly there is no one tablet which is ticking all the boxes right now.

I have both .... and the 8.4 is the better of the two, it is the best tablet you can currently buy IMO.

The SM-T700 *did* get the 5.0.2 'UK' update last week. Still waiting for the 'UK' version of 5.0.2 for the SM-T800

Can I ask why you prefer the 8.4 over the 10.5? I owned a 10.5 and sold it simply cause using it in potrait mode didn't work (kept hitting bottoms) etc and was a bit clumbersome to hold that way.

However I bought a nexus 9 and that bricked doing the update to 5.1.1 so it went straight back and now I'm thinking maybe I should go for the tab s again in 8.4 instead.

Mostly down to the size, the 8.4 goes everywhere with me and gets used every day, it fits nicely in my bag and also fits in most of my jacket/suit pockets .... the 10.5 mostly stays at home.

Hudl 2 is not a patch on this tab.... Jeezo!
This is a million miles from the Hudl 2, on so many levels. It's an absolute stunning tablet and a pleasure to use!

I have the 8.4 on 5.0.2, and its just outstanding in so many ways!

Worth a shot for anyone interested in getting one and willing to give it a go, but if you print this off, cut out the voucher and go in store you may get £10 off.

It's an old voucher so probably won't work, but you know what they say, if you don't ask...

Either that or you could try and go in store into John Lewis with the printed voucher and show them the Smyths website on your phone to see if they may possibly price match it?

I've got an Nvidia Shield LTE already and so won't take advantage of this deal, but thought this may help some of you.

Great deal BTW OP!

That wont work.

That wont work.



Yeah on second thoughts, the John Lewis price match probably won't being a voucher price.

If you speak to a manager in Smyths, they may possibly knock £10 off as there's no expiry date on the actual cut-out voucher.

John Lewis will only price match same colour and in store only, but not online (already tried). Also I don't like white colour so the wait continues for me. On the other hand samsung should release or at least announce Tab S2 model this month so further price drops are very likely.

This is not online, it's in store. So they DID match it for me, I wasn't just guessing in the OP. But you are right, they will only match the white, which is what Smyth's have. And remember this is only for 28 days since you bought it... so unfortunately I don't see the announcement of the tab s2 helping in time...unless you bought it today, then maybe

To answer previous messages, everything I stated in the op is true... it does have lollipop now. And objectively, it does have the best specs overall (as does the 10.5, which is the same, just larger) whether you prefer something else as a matter of personal preference, that's a different issue...
For Android users, the tab s rocks. And this deal is the best available at the moment (in store).
