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.

PSA: You Can Optimize Your Note 4’s Recents Menu & RAM

The Note 4 never had the fastest Recents Menu, and despite its 3GB of RAM, its app-holding capabilities only got worse on Lollipop. The infamous RAM bug that plagued the S6 is indeed an annoyance on the Note 4's 5.0.X ROMs. Rumors of an update to fix all of this were confirmed with the first reports of the 5.1.1 update for the Russian Note 4, which seemingly improved the Recents Menu and RAM management. But it'll be a long time...
