Default tab s processor

I like tab s 10.5 and I like to buy it but I wonder if the processor shiped in it is good enough or should I wait till they release The Note 2015 which I believe will come with amoled screen too ( which is my main concern in this tablet)

5420 is a bit weak, 5433 would have been ideal.

I'm honestly not seeing insane lag on mine. Chrome was pretty bad when I first got it but after an update that came through it seems to be a lot better, and I'm using TW. I wouldn't worry about the processor but if you need the pen that's another story. I'm happy with the Tab S which for me means a lot. My brother calls me the return master because If I'm not totally happy I'll return something in a heartbeat. I actually went through more than 15 Nexus 10's because of different issues but Im totally happy now with keeping the Tab S. The only things I would like is USB 3.0 and a 12.2 version but I only had a Nexus 7 on hand and didn't want to wait for them to be released.

It's hard to say for two reasons. Inductive displays are pretty complicated so it's not as simple as just throwing a pen sensitive layer on top. The Tab Pro 10.1 has a totally different LCD than the N10.1-14 as they score very differently in objective testing. So the question is whether AMOLED's as big as we're discussing can be made to work in the inductive display model.

Conductive (traditional touch screen)



Inductive (Wacom, S Pen, etc.)



Secondly, Note's are typically used as productivity and creation devices. Most apps in that category use white backgrounds. Making the existing Tab S' "Notes" with the same size battery and the burden of the additional battery draw of the inductive display looking for its pen companion would yield horrible battery life. Battery performance on whites isn't exactly a strong suit as it stands.

That last stat can be addressed by using Next browser in night mode. Though I know you were not talking about web browsing specifically but rather white apps in general I just thought I would toss that in there. I just wish the email app had a night mode....
