Default [Q] Do you feel 2gb is not enough?

Hi well I currently own a Galaxy tab s 10.5, however i'm not 100% pleased with it. So I was wondering if i should get the tab pro 8.4 instead, but don't know if the 2gb of ram is something that hold the tab pro.

My main problem with the S is the inconsistent performance which I think is because the exynos. On my S4 the performance is very consistent.

Thanks.

No, I mean ram, not storage space. The size also for the tab s is something that bugs me after using it for a week i don't like the way a lot of apps looks, they are not optimized for an android tablet with this screen size.

Hello,

More RAM is never enough. You are comparing technical detail with a subjective detail (logical vs sentimental). It is not a fair comparison. So you must choose what is more important to you.

Thanks.
The S4 has 2GB of memory. If you're happy with the S4's performance, than the Tab Pro's 2GB of memory should perform similarly. I think Samsung stuck 3GB of ram in the Exynos models in order to match the performance of the Snapdragon 800 / 2GB RAM models. I read the Exynos + 3GB combo barely outperforms the Snapdragon 800 + 2GB combo on benchmarks. The Exynos combo has to perform better to help justify its price.

The 3Gb ram is only for the 12.2 version all others are 2Gb.

Never run into problems with my 2Gb (smt520), and I run ram intensive apps
