Such a low Resolution though... my Note 3 has a higher resolution than that.

And @ronnypoo, see the last sentence: The Wi-Fi enabled Galaxy Tab 4 7.0, 8.0, and 10.1 will be priced at $199.99, $269.99 and $349.99, respectively.

Sounds like a good tablet. Not worth upgrading from my Tab 3 just yet though.
Hopefully whenever 4.4 comes to the Tab 3 it will bring along the multi user support... That's all I want.

Totally agree. The tab 2 and 3 models are total laggy crap (yes, I used to try to force myself to use them, until I got my new Nexus 7) Even with an AOSP ROM, they still are laggy, their screens are low res and have awful color reproduction. And they aren't even that cheap.

My 10.1 v2, was given a new life thanks to Cyanogen. Although at times it shows its age, it's still more than usable.

I was waiting for 4 to come out, but not having a 32gb model, now I may look into the pro line.

You guys know that these are budget friendly tablets right? They're not going to be as good as the Note Tabs, Nexus (even though this is almost budget-minded), etc.

I bought a tab 3 8" for £110. Delighted with it, and I really didn't think I would like it much. So I was interested in its successor. Can't say I am anymore. Not sure what's better about it other than kit kat.

I think a much better deal would be the Lg G pad 8.3. Snapdragon 600 and 2gb of ram for around the same price point

It's actually going for $230 on newegg. Great deal indeed. And the 8.4 Pro is just overpriced at $370 on sale.

Just my opinion.

Yes for sure. And with my own experiences, lg's optimus ui runs better than touchwiz.

Tab line is a good starter tablet, gave my son my tab2 7 when I bought a tab3 7, both have spent thousands of hours streaming ESPN go, HBO go, primary music device as well,, don't play games on it so I've never seen this buggy laggy stuff people talk about,, its a 'low' end device that just works and works well
