      By the time it hits the Philippines, there will be a significant increase in price. Maybe around P25,000 or more.

    8.4 inch of superamoled screen issues hehehehhe

  5. Wow that was nice, there’re using own CPU after all, hoping that they improve their own company cpu. Amoled is more powerful and efficient than LCD!

    Damn superAmoled goodness. I just bought my tab pro 8.4 for 19 thousang 3 weeks ago. I did read rumors of high end galaxy tabs pros with Amoled display but disregarded it.

    My tab pro 8.4 isnt bad at all, it looks really nice and snappy. No regrets.

    • tam says:

      yup tama ka tab 8.4 is not bad, 2 gb ram is enaf. if you buy the new tab s sayang pera. still same with tab pro 8.4, 3 gb lang xia at amoled. kung lower lower the brightness of tab pro 8.4 ang color nya maganda.

    Wonderful, finally mapapalitan ko na ang galaxy tab 7.7 the 1st galaxy tab with amoled. Was planning to replace this but been kpt reviewing updates ng samsung and their upcoming models. Was tempted to buy the pro, pero noong nagkaroon ng hint that there will be a new galaxy tab model coming w/ amoled screen, di muna tinuloy ung plan ko.. kaya if you are samsung fanatic, always update yourselvs with mobile reviews. So i am going to buy this s edition.. pero i heard that flexi screen will be coming out on 2015 both phone and tab.. so nganga!
