    How can this price be justified at $599 when the Samsung tab Pro S is basically being sold for $699 with a 256GB SSD running Windows 10? This tablet, new or not, shouldn't be selling at this price point given the specs. What justifies this price?   (4 Answers)

      The beautiful OLED screen, it is more portable and faster (Android/ARM v.s. Windows), the S-Pen, and the keyboard is optional. Also slightly smaller so more portable. If you have a lot of Android apps and few Windows apps (note Office for Android is on the tablet), it is easier to stay with Android. If you have a lot of Windows specific stuff and it would give adequate performance, the ProS would be better - but you will be using the browser instead of apps for most things. One is like a sedan, one is like a truck, they both work, but it depends on what you will use them for.

        Answer

        Hardware wise, this Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 and the iPad are very similar. The Tab S3, being an Android device, has a lot more flexibility in terms of configuration. That can be a plus for a power user, or a minus for someone else. For example with an iPad you have to use the mail app to access your email. On an Android tablet you can use the supplied email app, or install any one of a dozen others. But of course you have to spend the time deciding which of those couple dozen email apps you like the best. Since you have an​ iPhone, the iPad will "integrate" better "out of the box". For example, photos you take on your iPhone will be available on an iPad with much less initial setup effort than with an Android tablet like the Tab S3. Also the iPad and iPhone will have more common apps. And the user interface on the iPad will be very similar to your iPhone. An Android tablet's interface will be different. If you really like your iPhone and would not want to spend much time learning new things, get the iPad. If however you want a lot more flexibility in your tablet, potentially at the cost of a learning curve, get the Samsung. Personally I love my Tab S3. But I'm also an Android phone user and like the flexibility Android gives me both on my phone and my tablet.

      How and where do I insert my external sd card. Do not see anywhere on side to insert it   (5 Answers)

        Answer

        If you have already purchased the tablet, then you should follow the directions in the Quick Start Guide, on the very first page there is a picture of the front of the tablet. On the RIGHT side about half way down you will see a series of small holes. The 2nd hole is where you insert the pin that came with your table and it will open up the area for you to insert your SD card.

      I currently have a Galaxy Tab S2 in perfect, near mint condition along with the original box it's packaged in. Is it possible that I can trade in the older tablet for the current model? As they do with the phones   (3 Answers)

        Answer

        Yes BestBuy always offers trade in options, and you may find some extended directly from Samsung. Still, you may want to check the current resell value on eBay, which Ive always found exveeds the offers made to trade in tech. Items in mint condition can fetch a great price, and the profits applied towards aquiring the newest and best tech on the market.

        Answer

        When it comes to iPads you aren't able to purchase more GB at a later time because Apple doesn't want you to be able to expand the memory like that, instead if you want more memory then what a 16GB iPad gives you Apple forces you to pay more for an I pad with more memory and won't let you buy more at a latter time. P.S. GB refers to memory.
