We here at xda are tinkerers and perfectionists. We care about esoteric things like benchmarks and measure load times by the millisecond. The slightest hitch and we can't sleep at night for the nightmares of lag monsters and stutter beasts. We flash the newest rom just to flash something new and risk burning our expensive toys up overclocking them until they BSOD.

But you know that the reality is we enthusiasts make up a tiny part of the market for this tablet. Read the reviews of everyday users at retail sites and they are THRILLED with the gorgeous screen, speed and functionality of this new marvel. They regularly comment that the Tab S is THE BEST tablet they have ever used...period. Most of them even like Touchwiz, god forbid.

And you know what? Samsung doesn't make tablets for us here at xda, it makes them for Joe The Jackhammer Operator and Suzy Homemaker. It makes them for average folks who would sooner watch paint dry as spend 5 minutes arguing technological nuance at xda.

So yeah, the Tab S isn't perfect (what is?) but for the folks it is designed for it's pretty damned close.

Although you have to be a techno geek to even be aware of and consider buying the expensive Tab S.

I'm going to be honest and say I don't mind the visual look of the most modern iteration of Touchwiz. If only they made it not so bloated...

Expensive? The iPad costs the same for less and average folks seem to like that. And then there's the huge national ad campaign.

Could be a technological Bahrain drain?

According to xRevilatioNx the Tab S is a stuttering lagfest with abysmal web browsing performance. I guess you are just imagining things

P.S., I agree with you. Tab S rocks.
