    Yeah, and it's got the 18:9 form, so it's quite easy to hold in one hand. Got mine from the Philippines too.

    1920:1200=16:10, not 18:9

    :hi: My SM-P205 says hi! $SGD300/-

    Well worth it as phone, Moleskine & business tablet.

    I just wish it had a keyboard with a physical connection. Oh, and was easier to buy.

    Another way to look at the size of this thing:

    Nexus 7(2013) | 7.87 x 4.49 x .34in : 200 x 114 x 8.65mm : 10.55 oz
    SM-P205 | 7.93 x 4.81 x .35in : 201.5 x 122.4 x 8.9mm : 11.46 oz
    iPad Mini 5 | 8 x 5.3 x .24in : 203.2 x 134.6 x 6.1mm : 10.87 oz

    Now, compare the SM-P205 to the Galaxy Tab A 8.0 (SM- T387AA) at 8.1 x 5 x .35 and 12.6 oz. This is the version of the Galaxy Tab A 8.0 being sold by AT&T now - w/o SPen; 1200 x 800 screen res, it's bigger and heavier, LTE data but no telephony)

    What would you do with a device smaller than iPad Mini and a bigger screen than the Galaxy Fold that supported telephony for the price of a mid-range Motorola phone?

    What inking app do you use? I'm very frustrated with the OneNote Android UI vs. iOS or Win10.

    Thanks

    OK - you got me - I'm in. As much as I'm not an Android fan, this reminded me way too much of the Asus Vivo Note 8 that I loved so much for design but hated for hardware - surely Samsung is much better. :eek: Why do you guys keep doing this to me...:p

    Anybody interested in an iPad Mini with Pencil and AppleCare to 9/2021? :rolleyes:

    Surely MS will up it game with the Duo coming for Christmas, right? :cool: Even if the UI sucks, the real question is will it sync via OneDrive/Sharepoint to my laptop - if so, I'm good then.

    PS - you guys are the WORST enablers on the planet - keep up the good work...:p

    Is that the Spigen case? I ordered one with the tablet - a whopping $10 on Amazon.
