A week ago I would of give it a 5 star
I don't know what has happened but I now have to use chrome to post with an image on Facebook and firefox to be able to view Facebook in desktop view. For some reason to be able to use Firefox, I had to then have the Samsung Pass, which is an iris scan, to use I must remove my glasses and hold the tablet for it to scan, at times this not easy, for example on the beach where do I lay my glasses so I can maneuver both myself and tablet for an iris scan to get into my Facebook account. What was once an easy and compact device is becoming a total nightmare. This is not my first Samsung Tab and now very reluctant to upgrade to another one.

Excellent Quality & Performance
I have had this tablet for a while and it works fantastic, pretty much I think it compares to a good quality laptop. Never had any trouble with it, has long battery life, quick touch screen response, plenty of storage and fast charge. Not looking for a new tablet anytime soon.

This is perfect for my needs. Small enough to travel and big enough to watch movies. Never had any issues with operation or charging of the unit. Would definitely recommend it.

Best Tablet Ive had, wont upgrade.
Brought for myself and gave it to my 4yr old to play on. Became officially hers as an xmas present 2018 because I wasn't getting it back. It's fantastic, lost count how many times she's dropped it. No cracked screen and its never had an issue. Its her go to for learning, game play and cartoons. She can use it safely in kids mode. The stylus is great for her learning to write.

- Galaxy Tab S4 Wi-Fi (2018)
A great tablet and awesome customer service!
I have had this tablet for just on 11 months and have been frustrated by the 'moisture detected in the charging port' error. I have been in touch with Samsung and they have given me a fix to try at home and it worked! Thanks Samsung!
The tablet is fast and responsive and when fully charged will last all day. All in all a tablet that runs all the Microsoft office apps smoothly and I can print wirelessly from it. I can't remember the last time I had to use my desktop PC. If all you need is a solid browsing experience, email and office apps this is the way to go.

Can definitely live without it!
I hardly use this device now and use my old samsung tablet much more. I've had nothing but problems with the samsung galaxy s4 tablet. The screen cracked within 3 weeks of getting it and it always has trouble when using apps. Not a great improvement on the original samsung tablet maybe older is better!

Excellent Tablet - does what a tablet does and looks good
After using my Google Nexus 9 for a good number of years, I needed a replacement. I was in the market for a tablet that was powerful (to allow me to use for a number of years) and was relatively light weight.
I considered a few different tablets including the Apple Ipads and the smaller 8" tablets. The Samsung Galaxy Tab S4 fitted the bill well. It was a powerful tablet and with the reduced bezel sizes, the tablet looks like it would last me for years without looking outdated. Apps run smoothly with minimal lag.
The tablet is quite heavy though, so potential buyers do note this when you need to hold this tablet for a long amount of time.

Samsung over-run by Google
I have been loyal to Samsung tablets for many years, now Samsung are so in-bed with google it's impossible to go more than 10 seconds before I am bombarded with google ads. We I've had enough. I'll throw my two Samsung tablets in the bin and buy an APPLE IPAD. Samsung your orchestrating your own demise, have fun in the future without my cash. Samsung take a good look at the websites "how do I stop google ads" too many people have the same problem. You have a good product ruined by google ads, do something about it before it's too late for ALL of your customers, well you've lost me.

My Everything Equptment
Brilliant clear & excellent sound! Takes stunning photos!
Best buy for the "Office On The Go Person" Easy to use! My only negative? If your eyesight isn't fantastic opt for one with a different color on the back? Black is difficult to see buttons for sound etc!

Great all round tablet
Received this tablet as part of the Optus Mobile Broadband plan that I started at the beginning of the year. Fantastic tablet including an eye scanner for unlocking. Battery seems to last a long while too which is a massive bonus
Have a screen protector and rubber case on it to protect from the kids, think it will last a fair while more.

Good hardware, let down by lack of local software support.
The hardware on the S4 is great. The s-pen makes a handy accessory.
The biggest let down is it is very expensive at $1400 I went on a 24m mobile plan to ease the cost). To rub salt into the wound Samsung Australia’s software support is terrible.
For a flagship, expensive device we are currently running on 6mth old software (1Dec security patch) whilst other countries enjoy frequent updates. Android P (released globally and even in the USA) was scheduled for April within Samsung Members app however this hasn’t happened. The excuse use to be ...the Telco being slow however the wifi version is also lacking support) I personally would suggest getting something cheaper and upgrade more frequently to stay on top of the technology ... or for those brand agnostic maybe get an Apple device if you want long term support. Unfortunately Samsung Australia seems to have a sell and abandon support philosophy which damages the perception of good hardware.

I have had the tab s1, s2 and now s4, and I love this one. The quality of pictures it takes isn't the best, I still find the s7 edge phone takes better pics and video, but I use it for gaming and for that I love it. Great display, easy to use and navigate, I don't bother with the ordinary tab when I can get it all in one with this. Highly recommended, but then I am a regular Samsung user, so I may be slightly biased. But still, a very good device.

Upgraded from my Samsung Tab A. The price was high but the look of the tablet was just so sleek that I had to buy it. Performs very well, no problems so far. Great colours and very fast speed. Was a pleasant surprise when I found it came with a Stylus. I have a Note 8 so am very used to using a stylus when it comes to my devices. My only con is that the stylus will not work on other Samsung devices. Other than that I am as happy as. Job well done. Samsung watch will be next
