What tablet should I buy: S3 Tab, Tabs dying out, but AMOLED for Media consumption any good?

    It worked buttery smooth. At first I had issue with pointed not aligning with finger but I manually set the res to 1080p like laptop and it fixed it. The tab3plus can also act like a widi display to be another monitor which is cool with the kickstand if you dont need touch input.

    @Kittys thank you very much!

    You mean using Windows Connect feature?

    @Kittys yeah, that's the same. Thank you, that's exactly what I've been looking for! Thought only Windows tablets could do that...

    Kewl. you need to open Lenovos "Media cast" app and select "Cast Screens" option and -then- go into windows to make it an external display but thats only drawback if you do grab one~

    @Kittys so with Windows Connect it works great, right? I'm about to pull the trigger on one; also considering Windows Chuwi Surbook Mini, which will cost me up to $50 cheaper.

    I would just get the ipad and be done with it. windows 10 is crappy at tablet'ey stuff. Ipad is crappy at computer'ey stuff. Better to have a dedicated laptop/2 in 1 and an ipad. Best of all worlds then. No compromises then. The new ipad has pen/pencil support too!

    @Kittys long story short I was deliberately outbid on auctions, and ended up ordering a Chuwi on sale for ~$240. Hope I won't regret it - but if I do, will sell it locally and get myself a Yoga.

    @kojack iPad can't do wireless display well, it still has noticeable mouse lag AFAIK. I have to admit if I could tolerate wires, iPad would have been a no-brainer.

    I'm still rockin' Tab S 10.5 for media playback, one of the few 16:10 amoled devices. I probably have to source another one from the used devices market...
