18.4-inch Samsung Galaxy View now priced at $449.99 at Amazon

Since its release last November, retailers selling the Samsung Galaxy View have dropped its price from $599.99 to the current low of $449.99 from Amazon. That is a price cut of 25%. Most likely, these companies are having a hard time finding buyers for such a huge tablet. Samsung is not marketing this as a regular slate, but as a large screened device for multi-media use.

The 18.4-inch screen features a 1920 x 1080 resolution. This works out to a pixel density of 120ppi, the lowest we have seen in some time. An Exynos 7580 chipset is under the hood, featuring an octa-core 1.6GHz CPU and a Mali T-720 MP2 GPU. 2GB of RAM is inside, along with 64GB of native storage. Those seeking additional memory can access the 128GB capacity microSD slot.

The only camera on the Galaxy View is a 2.1MP front-facing snapper, and a 5700mAh battery keeps the lights on for eight hours between charges. Android 5.1 is pre-installed.

This is not a large-screened tablet in the same way that the Apple iPad Pro and the Surface Pro 4 have larger screens than most slabs. The Samsung Galaxy View is a niche product that might find some use in business or educational surroundings.

I think an 18.4" tablet is good for work but if it doesn't run windows and adobe's graphic applications, the best use for samsung view is an electronic broadsheet newspaper.

Personally, I think 18" is too big But I'd love a 15" Surface Pro

I might get this when it hits $350. 18.4 inches is very good for my dad who like surfing for news and car websites but don't like to sit infront of our big smart tv.

While I can understand that, with all the space they had, they could have at least made it A LITTLE more capable then their current flagship smartphone instead of worse.

True, I got my mom an Acer DA220HQL 21.5-Inch Android All-in-One Touchscreen Desktop to replace her 14 inch notebook. She love it and its under $300.

Why are the specs so crap? A 18.9 inch thin tablet is an interesting idea, could use it as a TV on the go with netflix. They probably knew it wouldn't be a popular product so they kept the insides cheap.

I would actually shell out for it if it was worth it though, so I'm actually completely against purchasing simply because it's not worth it no matter how "dirt cheep" it's being kept.

It's a good device if you read a lot of text. I saw how big the font is with apps fully blown up. Facebook app especially.

If they indeed know it's not going to be a popular product and choose to kept the inside with cheaper parts, then they probably should've sell it at this current price initially.

If this thing had an HDMI input to use as a portable monitor it might have been worth buying.

4GB ram, 128GB storage, hdmi in and a removable/adjustable stand that can do more than just two viewing angles wouldve made this more of an attractive buy...and keep it 499.00, then i might bite.
