    Hi all. Do any of you have the Tab S3? I'm looking for "real user" reviews. My Note Pro 12.2 is now 3 years old. I'm ready for something smaller and less unwieldy.

    Tab Pro 8.4 here and I flashed Cyanogenmod on it before even booting up, so not sure if my experience with it will be of any relevance :)

    Just my 2 cents. $599 for a 9.7" tablet with an Android OS seems a little pricey to me. If I was spending that much on a tablet I would get a Surface 4.

    For what it's worth.

    Good point. I only paid $200 for my 8.4" one, seems that triple that price for the S3 is way too steep.

    @palandri: Your point was actually the point of an article I read. Actually, the Surface 4 is about $50 to $300 more than Tab S3. Also, even though I have come to abhor Samsung, I have gotten used to their stylus software. (I think their character recognition cursive-to-typed-text software is top notch!) After using 3rd party software to try to emulate on the S7 what I used to have on the Note-series phones, it doesn't compare to the software on the Note. So really, it is pretty much a wash. As far as Microsoft software, I am more and more transitioning to Google Drive and its word processor and spreadsheet. However, just so you know that I made every attempt to be objective, I've been reading about the Surface4 and even looked on Amazon for pricing and package deals.

    After reviewing the handwriting recognition software of the Surface 4 and looking at costs with more than minimum memory configuration, I have decided on the Tab S3. But I will wait until June ("Dads and Grads" month) and see if I can snatch a good deal. I've also got unused Amazon points that will make my out-of-pocket costs easier.
