Sorry for the blurring, but this is a customer’s property. This thing was a massive pain to fit. Really old (200 years) farmhouse walls. I had to run power (ethernet POE) from a nearby socket but avoid using trunking. I did a diagonal hole, targeting adjacent the socket and with my longest drill bit I ended up about 3″ off target. Not too bad. The only bit of visible cable is behind a fridge.
So, on Friday I saw a Galaxy Tab S3 in CeX (a chain of tech second hand shops). It was over £100 less than the full price in Currys and was actually in A1 condition. Not the 4G variant, but I can always tether to satisfy that problem.
I decided to take the plunge as my Lenovo Yogabook really wasn’t working for me. Funky as it is to look at, the Yogabook running Android Nougat is actually pretty piss poor. No window mode support, just split screen; and to add insult to injury the OS is buggy and has been abandoned by Lenovo so will never be fixed or updated. The styles implementation is lacklustre to say the least and borders on gimmicky. I hardly ever found myself grabbing the stylus as it was so bad!
Enter the Tab S3 – a very capable tablet created by Samsung who, whilst I won’t say are perfect, are much better at keeping their flagship devices running for a somewhat longer time with updates.
The Yogabook was traded in and the money used to buy a keyboard case (from Argos as CeX didn’t have any in).
Yes. It’s so much better!
