    Just wondering if any galaxy tab S (8.4 or 10.4) owners are experiencing stutter on the inspire video feed. I bought the 8.4 tablet for the octo core performance and have found it to be considerably slower than my Sony Xperia z3 phone!! How can this be? Has anyone found a way to speed up the performance? Thanks in advance!

    This may or may not effect this program, but sine you have 8 cores doesn't mean that the dji pilot app can utilize all 8 cores. It simply means that you can run more programs at once. For example Autocad 2010 uses alot of processor calculations, but only uses 2 cores (even in my 6 core/ 12 thread machine) so in the end a 170 dollar dual core processor with a high clock speed would out perform my 1200 dollar six core processor that has a slightly lower clock speed.. It would be hard to imagine that the dji pilot app has the ability to utilize all 8 cores.


    Side note: higher core processors usually have lower clock speeds usually due to keep cost down and heat dispersion

    Your phone has which is 4 cores at 2.5 GHz. Your tablet has 8 cores at 1.6 GHz. Don't read this.

    Ergh, that's depressing... I researched and researched which tablet was the fastest. Everyone was saying the Tab S, Shield or ipad. I don't do apple stuff, and I couldn't find a reasonable priced shield in Australia, so had to settle for the Tab S...turns out it's not as fast as I had read. Waste of money.
    Thanks for the help =)

    I'm a Samsung guy if you wanna swap, I'll give you my shield. I understand your feelings about apple. I despise apple. But I did breakdown and buy one for my inspire. Works well.

    Unfortunately, clockspeed and GPU performance are the key things when considering a tablet for the Inspire. This is why the Nvidia Shield tablet is the best at the moment. It has a monster GPU to decode the video stream.

    I have a Tab 8.4 pro,There is a little lag,but when I'm flying it's not a problem.You can see this better when I put the Inspire on a table and wave your hand in front of the camera.But flying is absolutly no problem.
    Also it's running on a 4 core 2.4 GHz and not 1.6.
    Video is no problem and recording is ok.So for me no problems.

    Oh OK... How old is your shield?

    This confirms the higher clock speed, 2 core theory I had

    3-6 months old. It sat on my coffee table for the longest time... very minimal usage.

    Cool. I bought the tab S last Saturday. I popped it up on eBay last night and it sold in about 10 minutes, but the guy hasn't paid yet. I can let you know if he doesn't if you like?
