    I have the wifi version of that tab and it works great imo...not sure if by lag people mean latency and if that is what they mean all devices have latency and its no worse on the tab s....its also the best in terms to outdoor visibility. I'm running a custom touchwiz lollipop rom on mine and device remains very cool even after a 20min flight. Only downside I've found is that it can't playback 4k video 2k and 1080p 60fps plays flawlessly though.....so to review my sd footage in the field i use my note 4 and a otg cable with card reader for sdcard.

    Video was choppy on the one I bought and returned. I even rooted it and tried a custom rom. It had a stutter to the live video feed. Then I tried live streaming it to shou and that brought it to its knees. Put it back to stock and returned it.


    Only android device that truly runs it perfectly is the nvidia shield tablet.

    Had the Galaxy Tab 10". Went through all of the steps to make it work. Turn off video caching, delete all apps, roll back Google, use app killer for bloat ware, etc. I still had lags and crashes. I've always been an Android guy but decided to try the IPad Air 2 based on suggestions here and I haven't had any of those issues with it. The video is smooth, with no lags, without having to jump through hoops or turn off video caching. I know you want to stick with Android (I did too), but do yourself a favor and check out the other threads on this topic.

    I have the wifi 8.4" tab s and it runs the Go app and Litchi very well.....btw i have my Playstore Service rolled back as there were problems a few months back so it was a requirement for best performance back then and i figure leave well enough alone, although the latest version on Playstore is said to fix the issue. Tab S is a great, bright, powerful tablet.

    iPad Mini 4 has been great. No lag, screen does well with glare, hasn't even gotten warm at all. I never tried the android so I can't say. But the new mini 4 is great, and from what I read the iPad Air 2 is great also
