    Its a nice product, I get why they made it and what they are going for...but its just way too expensive. At £600 its the same price as the M3 surface pro (which is an equivalent spec), and then you have a genuine productivity machine rather than a glorified tablet.

    It will sell for the same reason as the iPad pro sells - marketing and branding. I can not see technical reason why most people would ever buy an iPad pro or this Tab S4 over a surface (or one of the surface competitors)...if your main reason is for productivity/working etc when they are all an equivalent price. If you don't need all the functionality that a surface type device provides (i.e...windows) then why not just buy a normal iPad or tablet for half the price? Only reason I can see is because you like the brand or are sold by their marketing.

    Its bonkers. I would quite like a decent android tablet so I can finally replace my iPad air 2 as a consumption device, but sadly this isn't it

    Agree with the above, the problem (for consumers) is Apple and Samsung have managed to win over a lot of sheep into blindly buying whatever they release regardless of actual need or better alternatives.

    Trying to explain to my brother in law why I don't yet want to replace my old HTC for the latest Samsung and that there are better things I could spend my money on, is well, like banging my head against a wall.

    Have a Samsung S2 8" tablet and its been rock solid though no update to Andoid O as of yet (and probably not likely).
    I would like a larger (10") tablet (do not want an iPad) and have been waiting on this (S4).
    at £718 with the keyboard case its a non starter, particularly as i assume thats for the 64GB model.
    For £708.98 i can get the Surface Go 128GB ssd, 8GB ram model, the surface pen and the surface keyboard and thats way to expensive.
    For now looks like an upgrade is out of question.
