I am really liking the look of this one.
Look at that screen compared to seven-inch!
Yes, I know it’s just 0.1-inch larger than the LG G Pad 8.3, but I haven’t seen that in person.
Also, the G Pad 8.3 is underpowered with a Snapdragon 600 and has a less-bright screen.
I also know the 8.4 isn’t the 4:3 ratio I usually lust after.
But this is Samsung and this looks to have the SNAP! that the current Galaxy Note 8.0 makes me long for.
And then there’s this too:
It likely won’t work with a Google Books PDF (someone already established that for me with his Galaxy Tab 10.1 2014 Edition, although maybe there’s some updating Samsung has since done…) but it’s there for other things.
This is really tempting over the HP Slate 8 Pro. I want to see this in person and try it.
Now, two videos:
Same-day update: I should make it clear that the version I’m interested in is the WiFi one. That will use the octa-core Samsung Exynos 5420 CPU. Horsepower! (The LTE version will use the Qualcomm Snapdragon 800.)
