Forum Added for the Samsung Galaxy Tab S Family

Earlier this week, we created forums for the Galaxy Tab 4 line of tablets. But while this tablet family came in at a very affordable price, many potential users were undoubtedly put off by the device family’s low screen resolution. Now, Samsung intends on rectifying this with the high end Galaxy Tab S tablet line.

Yesterday evening, Samsung unveiled the latest in its tablet lineup, the Galaxy Tab S. The Tab S is available in two different sizes: 10.5″ and 8.4″. Both devices feature nearly identical specifications, aside from their display sizes, including Super AMOLED displays coming in at a pixel-popping 2560×1600 resolution, which equates to 288 and 359 ppi for the two sizes. The tablets also feature a rather slim 6.6mm girth, 3 GB RAM, and a speedy 1.9 GHz Exynos 5 Octa processor. These devices also pack other OEM-specific features that we’ve seen on other Samsung devices such as Multi-Window, finger print scanner functionality, and more.

With these high end specifications, amazing screens, and thin profiles, Samsung is clearly gunning at the premium market. Will the Galaxy Tab S be your next tablet? Let us know in the comments below, and then head over to our newly created Samsung Galaxy Tab S forums to get started.

We are almost at the end of Q2 for 2015, and we have seen most of the flagship phones for the year already. While flagship phones usually offer bleeding-edge specs and are the most sought after phones, there is a huge market for non-flagship phones. Some offer value, others offer unique differentiating features. Today, we are going to look at the X1 phone by a Chinese company named N0.1. The company promises a truly rugged IP68 Certified phone. The device has a Quad...

When a Friend or Family Member Asks for a Phone Recommendation, What Do You Tell Them?

The majority of us here at XDA would consider ourselves power users and Android enthusiasts. Thus, when a friend or family member has a question about which phone they should get, they usually come to us. However, this is where we all differ. While some will atomically recommend the Nexus line, others in the community will suggest an offering from Samsung or LG. When a friend or family member asks you for a phone recommendation, what do you say?
