    Hi,

    I've been looking into that new Tab A 10.1 with the S-Pen. The resolution and battery mAh may be smaller in those, but running on marshmallow should probably help out the battery life. My Note 10.1 burns through battery on constant use.
    I'm a bit interested in the new s-pen generation, this 2013 era s-pen is getting a bit old, but still very capable. I'd mostly be using it for schoolwork in note taking and making some drawing.

    I want to know from users of any note or A tablet user if it's worth upgrading to the Tab A 10.1 w/ s-pen from the Note 10.1?

    A big fat NO! I bought the new Tab A because i missed my Note 7 s-pen (so much better than the s-pen on my Note 4) and thought this would be a great time to "upgrade" my Note 10.1 2014 edition tablet. Who wouldn't want a new Samsung tablet with the new and improved s-pen?

    What a colossal MISS. There is absolutely NO IMPROVEMENT in the stylus. NONE. I am a huge fan of Samsung and have stuck with them through three Note 7s and stayed with them by finally settling on the S7 Edge after the 7 fiasco, but trying to sell the Tab A as some kind of Note 7 but "better" is false advertising. It is already on its way back to the retailer after 24 hours of trying to like it. My 10.1 2014 edition tablet is better. By like a LOT.

    The Tab A is all plastic (as is the stylus... Doesn't even have a metal end like the 10.1... ALL PLASTIC!) While i knew this prior to purchasing, i believed it was worth the sacrifice to have a real precision point, pressure sensitive stylus like that which i LOVED on the Note 7.

    The overall feel of the tablet is a little off... It's much thicker than the 10.1 2014, and the orientation is now portrait. It feels strange and unnatural to view in portrait given that it is narrower and taller than the 10.1 2014. The dimensions just seemed weird.

    There are so many things to hate about it, right down to the fact that the expandable storage isn't adoptable, so most apps will live on your device and eat up all the onboard storage. I could go on and on, but I'll spare you the gory details. Again, all the things i disliked about the Tab A were known entities... i considered the shortcomings carefully before pulling the trigger, but that upgraded s-pen would make it all worth it. Samsung was in a hurry to market a product that would somehow make Note 7 lovers feel a little better about their loss. The Tab A is not got to appease anyone other than the people who won't/don't know any better.

    My advice? Fall in love with your Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 edition tablet al over again.

    I see. I'll see if i can get more insight on this, the only problem i have with my currently tablet is the battery issue, i would get it replaced or just upgrade. Thanks for the insight.
