Nice but too expensive

On the plus side, Samsung makes this like a big S7 phone...similar construction with glass and aluminum, but with much better speakers...all 4 of them! The AMOLED screen is perfect with a bit of black tint that makes it look good on and off. It's responsive and works as you would expect. On the negative side, it is made with aluminum and glass, making it impossible to hold for any length of time as my fingers get sweaty and it slides. You have to at least get a silicon case to cover the back. I'm afraid to put it down on a counter too. A brushed aluminum would have been better. And the biggest problem with design is the 4:3 aspect ratio. This is not good for Netflix, YouTube, etc. Huge black bars above and below. If you don't watch videos, it's good but why can't Samsung build both A 4:3 and a 16:9 tablet? They make so many anyway! Finally, all this is way too expensive! You can get a great touch laptop or convertible for this price. Don't try so hard to be an iPad! Not sure if this is a keeper or not...on the fence. The price is hard to swallow!

Great tab but you need to configure an option to save battery

The default setting on this device is to "Keep Wi-Fi on during sleep". That causes the battery to drain in less than 48 hours on standby. Terrible!! Resolution: Turn off "Wi-Fi -> Advanced -> Keep Wi-Fi on during sleep I did this and I'm now getting over 100 hours use on a charge with typical usage. Can't see why Samsung does this. I've changed this setting on other tablets and dramatically improved the battery life. Don't change this on a cell phone with a data plan though, because it will just use the Data plan instead.

Love this tab, but it will not allow me to configure DNS. Strange...

We have a multitude of Android devices, and for any given device, I might go into the advanced settings for a wifi connection and configure a custom DNS provider (which requires I set DHCP to static). This has never been a problem until I tried doing this on my new Galaxy Tab S3 (SM-T820NZKAMXO). When I configure it to use 8.8.8.8\8.8.4.4, the tab will connect to the wifi, but with no internet access. I'm flummoxed. It's not like there are a lot of configuration options. It's pretty straight forward and has always just worked. Why would this one tab be different? Thanks for any ideas.

Love it

I had switched from Apple phone to Galaxy S7 and didn't regret a second of it, so when my ipad started dying I decided to go with the Tab S3. It is amazing, the display is outstanding and the stylus is an awesome feature. I wish there were more apps that supported the tablet format, but that will come in time. I would highly recommend this to anyone!

Good tablet - wait for a price drop

I have been using the Tab S3 for about a month and so far have enjoyed it. Likes: -Media experience is good with a crisp clear screen -Powerful processor and ram so I haven't experienced any lag when watching netflix or other streaming services -Speakers sound pretty good for a tablet -Started using the stylus sorry s-pen more than I thought I would just to browse with the tablet and take notes -If you can find the Samsung magnetic case, it is the best tablet case I have used so far. You can very easily prop it up when viewing on your lap or table top Dislikes: -Battery life is just ok. It seems to use too much battery when it is idling so you might want to consider turning it off if you are not going to use it for a while. -Price is a bit steep. If it is anywhere near the launch price (google it)...wait. This would be a much better buy if it were just a few hundred cheaper. Right now it is on par with an iPad pro and you get the stylus included so still pretty good, but for an Android tablet it could be better. -The keyboard accessory seems to be MIA. Not available on Best Buy or through Samsung retail stores. I would really like to get this so I can try this device as a productivity tool. Conclusion: Buy it, but not at full launch retail pricing.

Nice step up from Tab S2

Bought the tablet on day 1 and have really enjoyed it. I haven't had any issues streaming Netflix, MLB.TV, Dramafever or YouTube as the one reviewer mentioned. All have been strong steady stream and crystal clear on the screen. Love MLB.TV on this tablet. I am an android gamer and games have played very well on the tablet for the most part - some of the older games hitch here and there, but I suspect that is more a optimization problem on the game dev side than an issue with the tablet itself. Some games that support the Vulcan API on the Samsung S7 Phone will not run using the Vulcan API on the S3... developers for a couple have stated they need to work to enable that support.

Light, fast and gorgeous to look at!

The screen is everything. The depth and clarity is amazing, the device itself is light and easy to hold- I went with the black, which does show fingerprints. A case is a must, BB doesn't carry them yet- but a competitors website does.

Great hardware, bad software

The hardware is amazing. Fast, powerful, screen is awesome, sound is amazing. The pen is like using a real one. However, Android ecosystem for the tablet doesn't seems to be there yet. Lot of application not made for tablet. Also... you can't buy a cover, its not available yet. Too expensive for what it does.

Great tablet, no case

Tablet is great, however, Samsung built a keyboard case that is not available in Canada. In France, that case is free when you buy the tablet.

Awesome!!

Have had now for a week and simply love it. S pen is fun to use and very responsive, wicked display, and the 4 speakers have amazing sound. Watching movies on YouTube is not an issue, no lag. I use this for work daily and have not had any issues.

Powerful, awesome screen

Pricey yes, but have had my S2 for 2 years, so worth the upgrade. Also its competing with the ipad at the same price point, so to be fair everyone should find that 'pricey' too. Its not an entry or cheap tablet, if that's what you want, look elsewhere. Just disappointed the keyboard cover and case aren't out

Finally another S-pen tablet!

Before getting the S3, I had a Samsung Galaxy Note 10. I specifically bought the Note 10.1 for the S-pen, which for an artist is such a great tool, so I was very excited to see the return of the S-pen. The S3 pen is very comfortable to use and works great, though I hate that it doesn't attach to the tablet somehow (the S-pen stored inside my old 10.1). It comes with a bunch of replacement nibs, which is great but at the same time a bit worrying that they might wear down fast. Time will tell. The S3 is very sleek, slim and lightweight. The battery life is pretty good, depending on what you're doing and the tablet charges very quickly. I am not a huge fan of the glass back, it feels like it could slip out of my hand while holding it, so I bought a cover for it (also got the cover so that I could attach the pen). The price might seem steep, but compared to others it's honestly not bad. Before this I bought a Surface Pro, which was way more expensive, and it was terrible! I thought the first Surface Pro I had was a lemon but the replacement one they shipped me was even worse. So I was very happy to see a suitable replacement for my Note 10.1. I'm still learning all the features and getting used to the changes (eg: the volume up and down button is complete opposite of my Note 10.1, so I keep turning the volume in the wrong direction), but I'm pretty happy with it so far.

Wow!

Great tablet. Yes, price might discourage you at first but you will be rewarded with an amazing display, an awesome stylus and lots of memory. Battery life is great, sound as well.

Weak hardware

It is a disappointment. When I watched a Netflix movie it started lagging. Removed all unnessesary apps, but did not help. With further tuning I managed to help, however I am very much ever now how weak the whole thing is. On the other side it is very light. The stylus is really great and joy to use. The "device maintainance" function is excellent, good surprise.
