Daniel Tyson :Dan is a die-hard Android fan. Some might even call him a lunatic. He's been an Android user since Android was a thing, and if there's a phone that's run Android, chances are he owns it (his Nexus collection is second-to-none) or has used it. Dan's dedication to Ausdroid is without question, and he has represented us at some of the biggest international events in our industry including Google I/O, Mobile World Congress, CES and IFA.

    • or those who like a physical button and the advantages that come from that. Just because you don't like it does not mean others don't and thus your comment is .. "Akward"

      • Relax - the comment is in jest. It's not about physical buttons (which is a preference) but about the fact that the menu button was removed from android design guidelines when ice cream sandwich was released.

  • HI All,

    Got the new Samsung Tablet 2014 edition16gb wifi "non 4g version" from Harvey Norman with the octo core 4 big 4 small. Big brother to the SGNote3 fone. Similar great points EXCEPT !!!!

    Problems encountered thus far......

    Phone boots twice at power-on.

    Slow charging.

    Sluggish performance compared to quad core SG note 3 phone.

    Samsungs NEW Video app struggles to display videos and stops after playing a few frames and you have to re-hit the play button to get it restarted.

    This video app struggles to show all videos "in play motion" grid mode when viewing large list of video files. This was a cinch for SG note 3 fone. The options to view individual folder/file lists is primitive to say the least.

    Seems either the 8 Octo core tablet doesn't have the grunt to run the new video app or the Samsung video app is so poorly written if you don't have the grunt it runs poorly. Anyway they are both Samsung products.

    It could just be that the app and the new tablet have not been optimised to work with an octo core cpu. ???

    Given VIDEO playing is one of the most relevant stock standard apps of this tablet you would've thought they would get it right !!!

    Who knows but Samsung. Typically they have failed somewhere in the rush to market... Maybe 6 months down the track they will put out an update that may address the above fails.

    Anyway its excellent for reading a book. But then you would expect that wouldn't you !!!!!

    So the screen is excellent !!!

    Ps As correctly noted by reviewers previously this wifi only tablet does not have the capability to actually play the Extra High Def videos ie. 4K'ish videos that the SG Note3 phone can produce.
