Anyone using one? I can't find a great deal of info about them. Interested in Dex and general performance.

Also the 256Gb version seems not to sold in NZ. Is that correct?

Yep. I'm typing this on a tab s4. Its the device I've been looking for for years. I got it from Harvey Norman on special a few weeks back. Got both the book cover and the keyboard case. Bought a Bluetooth mouse. Dex works ok, a pseudo desk top environment. Very happy with it.

Good to hear. What in particular do you find so good about it compared to, say, an iPad? Aside from the cost part, of course!




Did you manage to get a 256Gb version or is that just not available in NZ?

I don't use an iPad, so cannot comment. It has all I want in an android tablet. Hi res AMOLED screen, wacom digitiser, modern spec architecture. I have the 64GB version, if the 256GB 6GB RAM version had been available through a parallel importer I would have snapped it up. But decided at the time this would do.

I have been wanting one of these since it was announced. Can't quite justify the price tag over the S3 I already have (that my son pretty much commandeered. 


Reviews for Dex are pretty underwhelming, I couldn't see myself using it when I carry a windows tablet if I want to "work". To do real work, I pretty much need a second screen lol.
