Samsung_Tab_S_Tablet_Realities_Commerical_Screenshot_01

Samsung has started its new #TabletRealities ad campaign with three new videos detailing what our tablets are really used for. Although an Exynos octa-core processor (WiFi-only) or Snapdragon 800 (LTE), 3GB of RAM, 16/32GB storage with microSD storage up to 128 GB, and 4900/7900 mAh battery (depending on size) combine to make a tablet far powerful enough to work on projects and accomplish tasks, most of the time we use them for our own guilty pleasures like watching a movie or playing a game. As far as fun goes, the Tab S is hardly lacking, with a 2560 x 1600 Supe AMOLED display and 8-megapixel camera, you’ll be well suited for any of your hobbies that seem to always be hindering your work.

Folks, that is the power of nearly thirty promotional items at work. The lesson here is that if you are going to purchase Samsung’s stunning tablet, be prepared to endure the joy that happiness that comes with it.
