    How is everyone liking their Tab S8, Plus or Ultra? I have the S8 and couldn't be happier with my purchase. It's my first tablet and I mainly use it for watching videos and playing games. I don't really care if it can't compete or compare to the iPad or if the tablet os is lagging behind iPad os. I will regularly use split screen for two apps and it never disappoints.

    Anyway, just trying to revive this part of the forum and get some discussion going surrounding these devices.

    I have the tab 8+, it works great for me. I mainly use mine as a phone extension. I have it set up to take phone calls and text messages so I set my phone on the kitchen counter and leave it sit there.

    I never used a tablet before the tab 8, mainly because Samsung tablets usually are sluggish at best, but that's not the case with the tab8+. I bought the tab 8 because I had $250 promo gift card to use or lose and I seen that it can be set up to receive phone calls and text messages.

    Yes this forum is pretty dead. I was surprised to see a new post when I popped in this morning.

    I have the Ultra and love it.

    I have a Fold 4 which I use as my regular "handheld tablet." Since the Nexus 7, I've always preferred small form factor tablets, so I'd have no use for a large; 11" S8 or 12.5" S8+.

    I use my Ultra for Xbox gaming mostly, but also some video/TV watching, coloring, and reading comics too.

    I can watch something on my TV while streaming my Xbox to my Ultra, especially when my wife wants to watch TV.

    I absolutely love it.

    I prefer using my Tablet once I get home from work. I find my wifi signal is stronger on my Tab S8 than my S22+. It generally stays connected when my phone will disconnect when it senses a low signal.

    I'd be curious how many Tab S8 users are out there and what percentage of them are Android fanatics who go onto forums to discuss their devices. Obviously most people go onto to forums to discuss the issues with their devices or how to get the most out of them. Granted the amount of time that people spend on a tablet compared to a phone is not close at all.

    A tablet for some is a luxury device while a phone is pretty much a necessity. But at the same time I know there are Samsung users out there who bought one at the same time as their S22's.

    We have some money coming in soon so I'm going to be paying off my Tab S8 and possibly my watch 5. I intend on keeping this tablet for a long time.

    I agree with you tablets are luxury items, but when we have phones like the fold 4 and S22U we kind of put ourselves in the luxury items of cell phones as there are cheaper options for phone.

    I don't have any intentions on upgrading tablets for awhile. I don't upgrade tablets like I do phones. I don't remember the last time I used a computer, between the fold and tablet I don't have a need to use one. Samsung out did themselves on the S8 tablets. There is no comparing the S8 to the A tablets. The A tablets are horrible

    I had to look twice, I thought I was seeing things when I seen a new post.

    Maybe that's a good thing, the tab 8 works so good nobody is complaining

    Prior to this, I had a Tab S5e, which I pretty much stopped using when I got my Fold 3 about a year ago, (again, small form factor tablet guy, so I was pretty happy to give up using the Tab S5e), so like you, I keep my tablets a fairly long time, especially compared to my phones, lol.

    We bought our kids Tab A tablets. They basically just watch YouTube and play smaller games on them. My son, who just turned 13, is still ok using one. He also has a switch. But he has also been talking about starting a gaming YouTube channel. We're trying to keep him off the adult, non kid's side of the internet for as long as possible. He basically watches kid friendly gamers on YouTube. Thankfully he hasn't asked for a more expensive tablet. He's not getting a phone until he absolutely needs one.

    Tab A is good for kids for sure. They are so slow, I use one for work and it's horrendous to use.

    S8+. I discovered you can control your PC from anywhere via Chrome and it basically now can be a PC, which is awesome. It's a great device as a tablet as well for videos, gaming, etc. One of my most useful gadget purchases.

    I couldn't agree more with your last point. I talked to a coworker today who is even more obsessed with tech than me. He has the Fold 3 as his daily driver and I can't see myself ever replacing my Tab S8 with the Fold.

    A fold and the tab 8 make s perfect combination.

    I have just got my Tab S8 Ultra a few weeks ago to pair with my S22 Ultra. I absolutely love this tablet. As a long time owner of an iPad Air, it was very hard for me to part with it. But after using my Tab S8 Ultra, I'm so glad that I traded in my iPad for it. I find I am able to do so much more with my Tab that I could with the iPad.

    I even enjoy consuming media more on the Tab than even on my 55' Samsung TV. This tablet surpasses my S22 Ultra as my best electronic purchase ever.

    The S8s are great tablets. No real issues, so few posts. I am on other forums and most of the posts are just complaints. Not with this group, thank you.
    As it has been said no complaints. Love my S8+ and how it works with my S22 Ultra.
    Joshua , thanks for posting.
