Well, look what I came across at Best Buy yesterday:

It has a horrible glossy back, which is evident even in this blurtastic shot; just see the light reflection:
About close up:
And once I established it was connected to the Play Store, you’re damned right I did:
And then from Google Books:
But there’s bad news to report:
Just like with the Asus ZenPad S3 10, SmartQ Reader couldn’t read the Android file directory when the lower-right file folder icon is tapped! For some reason I can’t fathom, the app has become blind.
So I had to do a workaround by going through the file manager, My Files:
And, like with the Asus tablet, that scheme worked.
It resulted in this video (where I sniffle on camera, someone across from me talks, and a rude eejit pushes me from behind with his fat-ass backpack!):
Surprisingly, I thought this tablet lacked the oomph of the Asus.
But here’s an Asus video that says my recollection is false (this is a different edition of The American Magazine):
Even so, my experience of the Tab S3 overall is that it didn’t scream like the Asus. Also, the Asus is half the damn price!
Two different colors of stylus:
There’s also a keyboard case.
This photo is included because enlarging it will show the test sentence I actually typed:
I liked it more than the keyboard for the large iPad Pro.
More views of it:
I didn’t stop to think about running AnTuTu on it. Someone else likely will.
At a whopping US$600, this isn’t a tablet I’d consider. I don’t see the value in it or its stylus. Especially with the Asus S3 10 being half the price.
