If you can’t just watch TV on your smartphone, you can save $ 37 per month in addition to your wireless bill.

Samsung seems somewhat unusual with gigantic tablets (even if one is not shared by the buying public). The Galaxy View, a huge 18.4-inch Android slate that weighed almost six pounds, was launched in 2015. Undeterred by the shift from tablets to smartphones for content use, the company has a new large tablet with a slightly smaller screen but far larger battery.

While Samsung sold the original Galaxy View via its normal channels, the Galaxy View 2 is currently available via AT&T, which offers a series of convincing reasons-namely its existing DirecTV service and the video streaming service, which it plans to launch later in the year.

You can access these and other streaming video alternatives via a TV Mode button and see them on a 17.3-inch full HD touch screen. You can hold the view 2 with a built-in kickstand because you don’t want a 4.9-pound inanimate object sitting on your lap long time.

This is particularly true since the 12,000mAh battery probably does not produce enough heat, more than doubling the power of the 5,700mAh battery from the Galaxy View. It has also been upgraded to an Exynos 7884 chip by an Exynos 7580 and RAM 3 GB from 2 gigs. You will receive 64 GB of storage onboard— with an additional microSD slot for 400 GB— as well as a 5-megapixel front-facing camera and a quartet of speakers with Dolby Atmos Sound technology.

As it is available via AT&T, the Galaxy View 2 is obtained via a monthly contract. In particular, for 20 months, or over $700, you will pay $37 per month, almost $200 lower than or cost. Do you think it’s worth the cost for your binge watch, whether it’s original or successor, to have a big panorama? In the Comments section below, let us know.
