    ngl when random cameos happen on set, it increases my amusement factor by a quite a bit.The dynamics and interactions between everyone is just so fun. I feel like working at Linus Media Group is a blast and is another reason why I wish lived in Canada. I'm not saying to force these events, but honestly let them keep happening.

    I feel that, as others previously mentioned, DeX should have beed discussed as a main feature of this tablet. Most people can use this tablet for most of their computing needs (within reason) thanks to this feature.

      @Ilich Garcia I've used a surface pro x. It does not run a limited version of windows. It's arm. It emulates x86 windows apps when needed. I know, you don't. You must mean the 2013 arm surface. Teachers here walk around too when teaching. But the laptop stays at the desk, when they need to show the class something different they walk to the desk or podium and change the content, and go walk around again. The surface x was released because they need testing of devices thst are arm running windows. What limited version of windows does it run bud? It runs full windows 10 pro 64 bit. Runs windows 11 too, ran it at the launch of windows 11. For basic apps, no emulation is needed. Web browser things, Microsoft store apps, Microsoft office apps, all arm. Chromebooks exist for most web browser tasks. They also suck, they suck at browsing the web and if you want something that does it well, it's a class of device that wouldn't have an issue running windows anyways, so you are paying for functionality you can't use. Chromebooks are devices for kids, schools, and old people. Their workloads are super basic. Everyone else needs a real laptop. The versatility allows you to do anything. Hell you could install chrome os if you wanted. For a normal user you are bound to find a limit to what chrome os can do and you can't do a diddly damn thing about it without buying a whole new device. With a windows laptop you can do anything. Even if you won't do anything, you have the option if you ever wanted to. Chromebooks get away with the battery life because they use cpus that oems buy for 5$ because they are 5 years old and bottom of the barrel when they were RELEASED. Don't buy a high power device and you will get good battery life. Your combining about your wife's battery life when she has a gaming laptop. Get a normal laptop. A gaming laptop is not just a faster normal laptop. It's a different class of device for different people. Don't complain about how a device does its job when you bought the wrong device in the damn first place. Can't complain your scooter ain't winning races when the car your looking for is a Lamborghini. Wrong item for the job. You seem to like to talk a lot about things you don't know about.

      @Raycert07 channel Teachers in the US stay at their desks. Teacjers from otjer countries move around while the kids stay in the same classroom. Just to clarify, I love PCs, I have a 3000 USD laptop and a 2500 USD desktop, but for work, I could also use a DEX device such as the Tab S8 Ultra due to, as stated earlier, the superior battery life. There's a reason why Microsoft released the Surface Pro X with a Qualcomm chip that, surprise surprise, runs a limited version of Windows. Most people can satisy their office software needs while taking advange of the extra battery life. This is tje reason why Chromebooks exist as well. And no, I'm not stigmatizing PCs and I wont be the reason why people go for anything other than a PC, most people simply don't need one for their use case. Imagine being able to get to the end of your shift with half your battery and then get home to check your social media amd watch a movie before going to bed without having to charge your device every couple of hours? THAT'S why you get a Tab S8 Ultra, for the average person. There is no need to buy an iPad and a Laptop/PC for the average person if a single device can satisfy those needs. If you took offemse on my last reaponse, I'm sorry, but remember that the averahe Joe has no need for a PC and Chromebooks and DEX devices is proof of this new trend. The PC market will never die and it is unlikely to stop growing soon, but you gotta remember that technology is not static and some solutions may replace others as it is often the case.

      @Ilich Garcia that's a stigma. Most people don't just use pcs for work or gaming. Stop trying to make out pcs to be some outrageous expensive device for only the top 0.1% of enthusiasts. They are devices for end users. Stop trying to kill the pc boom of the 21st century by stigmatizing pcs as specialized devices. Teachers mostly stay at their desk. Plug in the damn laptop/tablet at your desk. They mostly use projectors which means laptop at desk, plugged in to an adapter that goes into the projector. Easily able to charge at the same time. Find a plug. Its not some fancy ass job that requires anything special.

      @Raycert07 channel There is a compromise and it's the battery life. And again, most people can do most things on a DEX device. Case in point, my wife is a high school teacher and she uses mostly Google docs, Microsoft Office, and web browser, she also doesn't have the luxury of time to charge her phone or laptop every couple of hours. A surface would need to be charged at least once during her shift regardless of power saving settings because of the screen brightness she needs in a school environment. Everyone should remember that most PC users use them for work amd gamers that require high performance devices are a minority. She has a Lenovo Legion 5 with a 4800H amd a GTX 1660 Ti and she still prefers DEX for work because of the battery times.

      @Crawdaddy Well sure, each to their own, I carry both Tbh, the thing is with DEX is it simply allows you to use your tablet in a more desktop style environment, instantly switchable, should you need it....use it or don't it's up to you but it's a nice option to have. It's also nice to be able to use the tablet as a second wireless screen for your laptop, they don't mention that either though.

    • CragScrambler
      CragScrambler

      @Phoenix Fieryn it's so you can use the tablet in an desktop style more with multiple windows ect, it helps with productivity more than anything when you are away from your main PC or laptop. Do you need it, probably not no, but it's a nice to have option.

    • CragScrambler
      CragScrambler

      @Hawk well you can still use wireless display if you want, but what's the point of using it on a pc? The point of DEX is to give a desktop experience on the tablet so you don't need to use a pc

    Placement of the S-pen on the back I would imagine is a durability decision. Also, a smooth glass surface of the glass against the pen, will decrease the possible cosmetic damage to the tablet and pen. My Apple Pencil is being chewed apart, and has left scratches in the frame. Which, not a big deal honestly. I could… have made it worse by turning the pencil on the side of my iPad into a fidget spinner. How many times can you spin the pencil before it falls off! Skills…. Skills.

    I'm actually potentially interested, can we get a deep dive on this tablet series? Since I'm not into the Apples a tablet hasn't been on the table in a long time but this might change that. I will also admit I haven't looked at Android tablets in years, is there anything on a similar level to this that isn't Apple or Samsung? Things I would want to know for the review: - How is the battery life? I potentially want to use this for college. - How well does the desktop mode work? - How is reading text for a good amount of time? Like reading an e-book for an hour. Does the oled just burn your soul with its brightness or does it burn through your battery? On a side note, I really like Johnathan is giving Android a serious shot. I know it won't make him switch as Apple does genuinly have many advantages but so does Android, especially when it comes to customization and personalization. That has always been the main reason I was unable to switch to Apple. I have some many small things I do in a specific way because they work for me and Apple's way often just does not gel with me. That and some of the silly limitations of certain apps/base functions. Like, yeah I get you market privacy but if I want to record my calls, something that has saved my butt on several occasions when talking with businesses, I don't want my only option to be connecting my call to some random persons external service so they can mail me the sound file. That is objectively dumb and very insecure. Anyways, that's a tangent :P If Apple let users customize just a bit more I would switch in a heartbeat. I don't want to be tethered to Google. It's bad enough that IRglo is the only video platform that is worth using.

    5G is an option for the Ultra and if you want a desktop experience, practically every Samsung phone and tablet comes with Dex nowadays. Kinda disappointed that there was a whole "tablet as a computer" discussion without showing Dex.

      @Datachu see the reason Apple products and the company is as bad as it is, is because of Jobs. His "innovation" was finding new ways to restrict the use of the device, closing it off to the owner, making it so you dont truly own your device and charging absurd prices for products that arnt any better then the competition. (The Apple tax) Maybe at a point they where good but that hasn't been the case for a loooong time. He was a good sells men he was charismatic in front of the camera, BUT an asshole when the camera wasn't on him, and you can see that same facade with the every CEO after him and its the same facade that Apple puts on everything they make.

    • Datachu
      Datachu

      @icephoenix1088 Yeah I know what you mean. Apple is a pop culture icon still even though I feel like the innovation and everything Steve Jobs (and certainly Steve Wozniak, believer in open source and the ability to tinker and customize) represented has basically dissipated. I still see apple products being the default in movies and marketing material, with that ugly notch I can't imagine why you'd want to show off your phone app like that. And damn, every time I see a "hacker" movie/show where they quote on quote "hack stuff" using a Macbook or an iPhone, I cringe so hard. As if you can even do that, and as if any real hacker would trust a product that records everything you do and ships it off straight to Apple HQ along with your exact location, even if you disable Find My.

    To be fair. The S6 was a GREAT tablet. The S7+ was till recently one of the best tablets on the market with THE best screen on any tablet. Android has really been advancing mostly thanks to Samsung over the last 2-3 years. As an artist I love the flexibility my S7+ gives. I always saw Procreate as too limiting.

      @David E Unfortunately, most small phones these days are ultra-budget ones. I'm rocking an xperia these days and couldn't be happier if not for the size/shape; if it was half an inch shorter that'd be just perfect. Really, I could remember 4 acquaintances of mine from the top of my head who got an iphone SE in the past 5 years or so purely because it was the only small and powerful phone available. Realistically, Samsung probably doesn't care about those customers as they're not likely to buy a new phone after just an year or two, but these customers still opt for Apple.

      Horst is lowkey the most knowledgeable and interested in mobile experiences in general, he's the only one who knew how to get into nav bar customization and it sounded like he was actually exploring Samsung customization. I honestly wish he wasn't so heavily apple biased (although at least he doesn't hide it) because I think he could be a great non-apple mobile hardware reviewer.

    I bought a Tab S7+ last year. I was nervous that I'd bought too soon. I don't think I did, actually. Doesn't look like there's a very compelling reason to go S8 unless you really want the giant screen

  • General Nickles
    General Nickles

    I have the Tab S7+ and the thing is freaking awesome. I love it. The only reason you should care about it being any better than it already is, is if you're a graphic artist. If you need the absolute best in color accuracy and pen support, then frankly, you really shouldn't be using a tablet anyway(get a PC or laptop for that), but that's literally the only thing an ipad pro has over even the Tab S7, much less the S8. Every other "advantage" the iPad pro has is absolutely superfluous to 99% of people, even if they don't want to admit it.

    As an Android user I agree that tablets have been weak. I recently purchased the S8 ultra, 512GB with the 16GG RAM and I love it. So fast, games play great and the display is the best. Cameras, ehhh. Not impressed but slightly better than what I expected. The S-Pen btw also magnetizes on the top of the tablet when in landscape mode

    I'm pretty sure it does have double tap to wake and lift to wake, it just has to be turned on in the options menu. I have the predecessor (S7 plus), and it supports both. Also, considering the cover for $70, the price is actually pretty good for an original Samsung cover (apple as well), especially with that nice kick stand. If you look up the price for the keyboard cover then you've got a reason to complain; the price for this one seems alright to me.

    What I was waiting for is a good OLED tablet. I love sitting with tablets on my porch or in buses/trains but whenever sun hits your ips lcd even on full brightness you can't see nothing and buying ipad pro just to fix this issue was madness for me. I'm glad that Samsung made OLED tablet but I still hate their version of Android and would install aosp

    I was actually considering looking for a new tablet recently, this was on my list as a potential tablet/laptop replacement for portable use. But the lack of data on the highest end definitely excludes it from the list now. I would much rather stay away from apple and save some money/have the freedom to freely customize my device/have easy windows cross functionality. Guess I'll be looking at the Plus next for a portable tablet replacement since the lower end one also doesn't have data for some reason... As well as various other android tablets out there.

    I personally use the S8+ right now, and it's absolutely great. I use it for school too, which works very well. I couldn't bare to have the notch on the ultra.

      but if s9 ultra comes without a notch it would be amazing

    There's only one thing that will get me to consider switching from iPad - making it double as a monitor making sidecar irrelevant.

    This had chaotic energy but it was really fun, it gets a lot of impressions squeezed in to one video. Short circuit is a vibe

    You didn’ t try the DEX mode. That makes this tablet work like a laptop. Not looking at this option doesn’ t give this tablet the credits it deserves.

      I think it's because this is on Shortcircuit, it doesn't have to be a full on review. Just how it looks and feels at first viewing, kind of like when you try gadgets on display. They don't have all of the specs and functionalities on hand, just the basic info that you can easily see on display.

    If the Ultra would have 5G it would be perfect for me as an artist to do some drawing while sitting in a train but also use it to watch stuff streaming from my plex Server. I really hope they will add that for the V2 model if that will ever happen.

  • CragScrambler

    That's odd, they do versions of the ultra with data or at least they do here in the UK, also no mention of Dex which is a great in tablet option that greatly increases productivity, No mention of it's other capabilities such as being able to be used as a wireless screen for your windows laptop or desktop? Discount Flanders really dropped the ball on this one.🤣 Also the prices arent that bad, my 256gb / 12gb ultra 5G cost £760 after trading in my old galaxy Tab s7+ LTE on the Samsung website, got more for trade in that I would have just selling on eBay.

    Other people coming on short circuit is probably my favorite part of short circuit such as the time when Anthony was using the switch oled linus tried it out and gave his thoughts, or why I enjoy Colton and his chair videos because he'll get others in too (my favorite was the Secret Lab Titan vid)

    you can actually use split screen up to 3 apps, while you can open so many apps in pop-up mode. it's actually a multitasking beast!!

    You NEED to give DEX a go! You dont need a separate monitor to use dex on samsung tablets PS: You can get it with 5G in regions outside of the US, it's available in Asia, Europe, Middle East and Oceania. No idea why it's not available in north America

      sadly not in my country. they don't even have LTE options but they did try the last time for a bit with s7 tab, but i guess sales proved there is no point. Samsung did pretty well with tablets in my country, even a surprise to their sales team as I was told by some of them. Dex is amazing but I hope it gets more support as we go along. For now, i just want a full functioning web browser. Samsung internet is alright but the problem is I can't sync it with my PC/Mac/Linux (yes i have all 3 haha) with the bookmarks and stuff and I just need somethign like that. I use Opera and Brave but those two on the tablet/android whatever , isn't so great . it's OK, but it's not great. I also have extensions to run, which Kiwi browser does well to an extend but also, not so great. The only way i figured to make it work was running Linux from termux and using the firefox browser. pretty good so I'm just wondering if android 13 will have KVM natively. that would be so cool

    These things are great for the right kind of user. Still enjoying my Tab S6 a lot even though I now have an iPhone and MacBook now - it's honestly great and the sound of the Tab S6 is pretty close to my MacBook.

    Yeah, defnitely want to see a follow up with this in regards to DeX and a deeper dive into its featureset. I agree with Riley, I want to see these devices succeed.

    10:45 I would love for there to be good a sub 5 inch phone(talking the entire front, not just the display) with excellent battery life. Maybe even smaller, like the palm or whatever. But that battery life is inexcusable, and I don't want a nonsense "minimalist" os.

    What Samsung missed out on here is with a screen that large, they could let you plug in a keyboard and mouse and just have Samsung DeX run to have a full WIMP environment.

      @Robert Brown i unlocked the bootloader on my S22U and i still use my cameras just fine. regardless, i'm not even referring to advanced things like that. of course it's not like it was back in the day with rooting and custom roms. im talking about the availability of apps for different functions, features, and other functions that iPhones just straight up lack or have implemented in a terrible / useless way.

    • Robert Brown

      @Joseph Demarest you know Samsung are starting to restrict there devices , if you unlock the boot loader in there newest phone they block you from using your cameras :/

    • plazasta

      @Joseph Demarest dude even Samsung is guilty there to a certain degree. One of my biggest complaints with my S7+ is that they don't support themes. All their smartphones do, and the customization is really awesome, but on their tablets? Nope! Nothing! and yeah, owning an S7+ and watching this video, it's really obvious they haven't looked at any Android tablets in years

      @Shurin its irritating as heck watching this channel when they review any android product honestly. This "review" was the definition of a boomer reviewing tech while having no knowledge of what they are reviewing.

      @Michael Ryan exactly. regardless, i have never been able to use an apple ipad or iphone, or even mac, without feeling locked down. it's slightly better on the mac, but with the mobile devices, you can't use them how YOU want to. you use them how THEY want you to.

    Samsung has been using square edges on their tablets for a few years now, the Tab S7 also has square edges and is another good tablet

    Gotta love people saying it's too big, I got mine a few weeks ago, it's perfect, use it for watching shows and browsing the web, it's great in vertical and horizontal use.

    i have a s7 plus and absolutely love it. fantastic tablet, better then any ipad ive ever owned.

  • WaschBaer

    btw, the square edges allow for a slimmer device without compromising internal volume, a rounded edge would take away space since you cant really put stuff in the curvature

  • Neoxon

    You know, I’ve always wondered why Apple doesn’t just make the iPad (or at least the iPad Pro) horizontal by default. As for the Samsung tablet, I guess the camera module really is that big if they have to put in a notch.

    • Alec Whatshisname
      Alec Whatshisname

      @Sen Snowy nah nah nah they didn’t intend for you to use it sideways, the camera was still at the top. The display driver was just on the on the other side and it was a bit noticeable, because it was on the longer side. It would be nice if they actually designed for this use case.

    • Sen Snowy

      They tried it with the iPad and people sued them cause the vertical position had refresh differences. I think it was the mini.

      A notch isn't needed, just stop making the bezels razor thin and there will be room to house them.

    I have a 2018 iPad Pro and although the pen responsiveness is incredibly and Procreate is fantastic, I still to this day come across iOS quirks that make me pull my hair out. Having used Android phones since 2013, I don't think the compromises are worth the "idot proof" design of Apple's mobile OS. Since Android 12, you get almost all of the privacy features as well
