    I really don't want a larger tablet like the S7+, my S6 is big enough for its use. With the S7 using an LCD and the regular size model, no chance I would ever consider it with LCD. I hate LCD screens. Samsung AMOLED is just so perfect.

    And everything is just slightly thicker and heavier compared to the S6. I waited through several tab generations for my S6 for Samsung to finally get close to the thinness and lightness of the S2, which made me fall in love with tablets.
    What is the standby battery life like on your S6? --My S4 is so bad that i have to keep it on Airplane mode when I'm not using it or it will be dead the next day. --I have an iPad mini2 that can go 2 weeks on standby.

    I'm going to go from a Google Pixelbook to the S7 Plus. The pixelbook is nice and I love the convertible folding chassis, but there are too many compromises. You can't connect devices, and these's no gps for apps - marine and hiking. I wan't at least a 12 inch screen, full access to devices, and all my apps to work, the S7+ looks like it will fit the bill. With employee discounts, trade in, and pre-order bonuses it shouldn't be as expensive as reported. Just like the Note 20 Ultra listed at $1300, I ended up paying $570.. BTW where is the Tab S7 Forum?

    Anyone seen a case for the S6 like the S7+ has (but obviously smaller) with the kickstand?

    Is anyone considering the smaller S7? I don't want anything larger or heavier than my S4, especially since so many apps aren't optimized for a tablet--using Twitter feels a bit like my face is smashed into the screen.

    I would go for the S7 but for the screen. I hate that it isn't AMOLED. I'm considering an S6 because of this.

    There's no forum yet. Hopefully we get one in time for the release.

    The tab S6 is still a very capable tablet.

    I didn't plan on buying it, but I may end up selling my S6 and getting the S7+. Last year I sold my Tab w/SPen for this S6 and came out pretty good. Because I haven't seriously considered it, I'm not privy to the differences between the two. I've never had a tablet that large, so idk. I just signed up "to get news on the new Galaxy Tab S7". I'll see what they're talking about.

    It's only going to be slightly bigger than the tab S6. I love my S6, but I think it's a little too narrow. I'm hoping that the S7+ bridges that narrow gap for me. The 12.9 iPad is sightly too big so thinking the 12.4 profile will be perfect.

    Sounds like the Goldilocks tablet for you. Just right 😊

    Why does Samsung keep putting out new tablets when they end up treating them like the evil step child and barely do upgrades. Yes, the S6 was upgraded to Android 10,but we are still on a May security update. They say this can act like a desktop but who wants to trust important data when the security updates are months behind. My S10+ is on August, so why haven't they bothered with the S6?

    Does anyone have an idea of when AT&T might get the Tab S7? I just sold my iPad Pro in preparation for the S7+. I'm hoping this device shows up on 8/21 with the Note 20 release.

    I see we can reserve now, but they're jacking around with the colors. After a quick browse, it looks as though Mystic Bronze isn't available for the + in 256GB. 😡

    I hope I just overlooked it.

    I agree with you. This, plus the fact that so many apps are never optimized for Android tablets. I'm on Twitter a lot, but the experience is so bad on my S4 that it sometimes makes me dizzy.

    Funny that you can get the 512 in bronze. Their logic makes no sense . I don't won't to trade in my S6 since it's a email l smaller size and almost identical plus I have the keyboard, but their trade-in pricing is super competitive.

    Samsung can play with me if they want. I don't need that S7+. My S6 is perfectly fine. Let me not be able to get it in Bronze at 256gb...They can keep their lil funky tablet.

    I'm thinking about a Galaxy Chromebook instead. Trade in values are better and it already has a keyboard and 13" 4K screen. Can get it for $507 with trade in.. The only thing holding me back is battery life. I have a Tab S6 lite for things I need a tablet for. Any thoughts?
