    If dstrauss weighs in, that will probably increase the returns by 3... :)

    It's a mindless game that really has no goal other than to waste time. Think of GTA but in a much smaller environment with worse graphics, no police, and you're an invincible goat.

    I'm now actually thinking of going to a Pro 3 i3 due to the charging situation.

    It's not too bad. I use it plug in at home and haven't had a problem, yet. Though to be fair I am not really gaming when charging it. Slow charging times are a bit of a concern, specially if you are use to something like the quick charge feature on Lenovo laptops, but at about 8 hours of battery life one could get a lot done.

    Just ordered a USB 3.0 universal docking station and Lenovo keyboard for the S3. I'll be adding a 22" display when the other stuff arrives. My son has already claimed the X301, which will be retiring as soon as I get the S3 set up. Two device solution for me.

    Defently I'm going to keep it by 99%!!
    1% is because I'm on the first few days having the tablet and having 10 more days of DOA if something goes wrong with it,but again I will ask simple replacement as I do loving the S3.

    So far I'm very pleased especially the much brighter screen than SP3.
    And battery life also is very satisfying giving me 1 hours minimum more battery than SP3.

    I returned it. :(

    I actually really liked it, but there were just a few things that tweaked me.

    Size felt just a bit too big
    No handy place to store the pen (no type cover for me)
    Gaming crushed the battery life
    No smart cover
    A few of my key apps still suck on Windows

    In the the end, it just wasn't enough of an upgrade over my Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 to warrant $700. Not that I love my Galaxy Note, but it works and I'm comfortable with it.

    Saying all that, I to have considered buying the S3 again. It is an awesome device.
