    I'm using 8.4" Tab S (wifi)
    You can use the 10.1" version but you may have to do minor modification to the tablet holder.......I've read people say they just squeezed it in and it fits....at this point you will want to "rollback Google Play Services" on whatever device to have the best downlink and app stability. I did it....no biggie......works great. I used a note 2 on my phantom vision so at first 8.4" was super dope, but just today i was "dream" browsing craigslist looking at the 10.1", less than 10% chance I'll buy one but something to ponder.

    The 10 inch ers start to get a little heavy but it's preference.

    I have great results from my Tab 3 and Tab 4. Both 10". Heavy?? Maybe little more exercise and less doughnuts?

    We use a Nexus 10". Too big for default holder though. I use high tech rubber bands to keep it from falling off.

    A little modification to the upper part of the cradle and it works great. As manufactured, it wont hold any 10" tablet.

    Nvidia Shield is the "Beast", "Dragkiller",...whatever....

    It eats everything like peanuts.

    What are you talking about Shield 2?? It is only a rumor at this point. Nobody actually has one (unless perhaps you're an insider at Nvidia?).

    NVIDIA Shield Tablet 2 rumors begin, packing an 8-core processor

    There was a recall on the (or some) Shield. They were replaced by the newer model.

    The f*$k if i know....i just posted link comparing Tab S vs Shield 1....then i was told there's a new shield and old is not available, i then used a pc to calculate that the number 2 follows 1 (Sesame Street confirms that too). Then i figured if we're considering the latest and greatest might as well mention the Tab S2 .
    My bad !

    It wasn't a newer model . . . it was the same model with a different battery.

    Has anyone used a Samsung Tab S2 10 inch?

    I have a Tab 4 10.1 and it quickly overheats and freezes. My Galaxy Note 5 (and Note 3 before that) work great with only some lag problems when running at extreme (1000 meter) distances. I want to buy a new 10 inch range tablet that will be primarily for my P3P. Can't see going for a Quad core Nvidia when Octa core is on the horizon, but also think LTE connectivity will be a plus in the long run. I am leaning towards AT&T Tab S2 but really trying to take everything into consideration before I pull the trigger.
