    I use the S2 9.7 inch and think it’s a good tablet although on occasion the Android experience can be choppy. Hoping for a Nougat upgrade soon

    I have the S2 9.7 LTE model and love it. But the S3 is night, better chipset and camera, oh and fast charging, but nothing super new that I would dump my S2 LTE. Not to mention the price of the LTE version I am sure won’t be very good.

    This price point for a tablet is just bonkers. As someone who was looking to replace my Nexus 10 it looks like everyone who makes a good tablet is shooting for some premium price point for a device that just doesn’t do as much as a laptop of equal or less value. I’m definitely thinking of going with a Chromebook now

    That crazy mental expensive. I love my original Tab S but $900 with tax is insane.

    Will definitely be looking elsewhere for a replacement also.

      Just keep using the Tab S. Zero need to upgrade. Tablet technology is basically at a standstill, or minor incrementalism at best but with exploding upward prices.

    Lenovo’s new Tab 4 8 Plus and 10 Plus are much better options if you need Android tablets
    Hopefully they make it to Canada

    And then analysts wonder why tablet sales are falling off a cliff. Unless you are completely addicted to upgrading the tablets from 2 years ago are perfectly fine for everything you need a tablet to do.

      I think you have a good point here. There must be a valid business point of view as to why they dont implement features similar to their higher end mobile phone devices. What they are I am not sure.

    32GB is better than 16 yet still pretty chintzy for that price if you ask me… Yeah I know, Apple does it too ;).

    Kind of moved away from Samsung tablets after my Tab Pro 8.4 got left out in the cold without a single update. If I’m spending that kind of money I’ll buy something that has more reassurances of being supported.

    Do you get the free book cover if you pre-order off Best Buy? Mobile Syrup mentioned in another post you get a free case if you pre-order it.

      No I went to pre order at Staples and also at Best Buy no cases being offered.
      Yest on the Samsung .ca/promotions site they say that they cases come free with the pre orders made by March 23,.
      Check out Apple prices they will be dropping their Ipad prices this week.

    Not even a snapdragon 835, no thank you.

    Will the key board go for sale?

    I am curious about the case as well. Just sold my S2 and pre-ordered the S3. Samsung usually releases official cases at launch (they did with the S and the S2). Personally i feel this is a pretty big update over the S2, included S-Pen, USB-C, fast charging, more ram, faster cpu/gpu, bigger battery, hdr ready screen, NFC, and the new keyboard runs via pogo pins instead of needing bluetooth and separate charging., and of course android 7 which still hasn’t dropped for the S2. Really the only negative is the price, if you back out $100 for the s-pen it is still $150 over the S2. I already ordered a cheap pos case from amazon but a stock case would be nice. No locking pins on the back of the S3 so presumably it will be similar to the S case which did not have a magnetic closure…
