      Answer

      The old model (SM-T810) runs on on Android 5 Lollipop, while the new model (SM-T813) runs on Android 6 Marshmallow out of the box. The old model 810 might get a Marshmallow upgrade later this year. Besides that, they have different CPU and GPU. The old model ran on an Exynos chip set, while the new model runs on a Snapdragon chip set. Everything else is the same.

      Are all these newer Samsung tablets MHL-compatible? I'm looking for an Android tablet I can hook up to my TV (so I don't have to rely on mirror casting).   (1 Answer)

        Answer

        This line of premium Galaxy tablets (starting with the Tab Pro, Tab S, and Tab S2 (T710, T810, T713, T813, ...) all have a microUSB port that is OTG and MHL compliant. I actually tested the Tab Pro 8.4 and the Tab S2 (T810) and wired screen casting works fine, I also have the Tab S2 (T813), but I haven't tested it yet with an MHL adapter. For MHL, you will need an MHL adapter with an 11-pin microUSB plug (or a 5-pin to 11-pin adapter.) The downside of wired screen casting is that you can't charge the tablet while casting. The MHL adapter makers all claim that the USB port they use to power the MHL aapter will also charge your device -- but they only put out at most 1 amp, and the tablet requires a 2 amp charger -- so your tablet battery is going to be depleting while casting by wire.. Another downside to screen casting (wired or wireless) is, if you are casting to a HDTV, the MHL adapter has to drop about 50% of the pixels(because you are casting from a higher resolution device). So if you want the same picture quality,you need to be casting to a UltraHD TV with a MHL adapter that supports 2k or 4k resolution.

            Answer

            Microsoft makes Android Apps for all their products. You don't install "Office" per se, but on the Google Play Android App store just look for Microsoft and you'll find an app for Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Notes, and more from Microsoft designed specifically for Android.

                    The Samsung Galaxy Tab S2, like most Samsung tablets and phones, has the ability to have an app loaded that will work with many residential Samsung televisions. That being said, I am the Chief Engineer at a major hotel chain and have been in this business many years at several different hotels. Most hotels use a third party proprietary video system that works strictly with their own remote controls. There are a few that will use Direct TV or another system that has a downloadable remote, but these are far and few between. I only know of one third party video provider that had a downloadable app for their remote. While we, and some companies are trying to move forward with the technology, most rely on hotels having to continue purchasing their remotes. At my hotel, we wind up purchasing 60 to 100+ remotes each year. Multiply that by $30 a remote and hundreds of hotels and you realize why they want to maintain control. There is simply no single app that will work for all systems and televisions. It is just easier to use what the hotel gives you in the room. Until such time as something better, and cheaper for hotels comes along, this is the way it will be. Hopefully soon, with the expanding amount of internet television, it will change. Then we can all be a lot happier. I hope this helps.
