As a 7" tablet It works well and I have no negative effects at this time.
2 October 2014
Summary: This tablet is a 7" screen size and not 8". Therefore, if you need a genuine 8" screen size tablet, I won't recommend this tablet. I bought it because it was advertised as 8" and generally, 8" would mean 8" screen size. Now i'm stuck with a 7" tablet which I did not want. That aside, If you want a 7" tablet, this would be a good one to buy. I have had no issues with it, even though its a used item, the scratches were hardly visible(looked New).
Summary: I'm sure the tablet is lovely, that is, if it were working. I wondered about the refurbished condition. It did look brand spanking new, just as everyone commented. Unfortunately the touch screen only worked when it decided to. Which was almost never. Same with the menu and back buttons on the bottom. Sadly I had to return it. I will go with the new one next time around.
Summary: I really enjoy having the 16GB Memory for the price of an 8GB unit (refurbished). But, Samsung cannot help with issues and they want it sent back (10 days going/10 days coming back) which really eats into the 90 day warranty. I had a problem and the only option was to Reset to Factory Settings. We all know how much we hate to do that when we have just gotten the computer to where we want it. I charge it each evening and the battery lasts almost a day.
Summary: I bought this for general internet access and quickly looking up information when travelling-- maps, timetables, travel itineraries, travel notes, viewing and then uploading photos to internet from a micro-sd card, etc. I had hoped this device was an upgrade from the previous Galaxy Tab 2.0 7 I previously had and in some ways it was. It had double more storage space, much better finish and materials, and the screen was much brighter and noticeably bigger.
Summary: I think I was sent a version that wasnt American, it doesnt update Facebook, all messages were saying "Just Now" & it had been hours, I could not download Twitter, everytime I tried it took me to the Galaxy Apps (even when I clicked Internet or Chrome, it still went to the Galaxy App) & Samsung Galaxy Apps didnt work properly.
Summary: The tablet when, it arrived, did not work and after considerable time investigating the reason I decided to return it by post. The reimbursement, when it came, did not include the postage cost of its return. I have decided not to repeat the order and consequently I now have a Mofred case which I bought at the same time now surplus to my needs.
Summary: Horrible batterylife. My 4 year old ipad2 still has longer battery life than this tab. Screen resolution and quality is good. Performance is decent - occasional lags duribg normal use.note - I dont use it for gaming. Samsung customer service is super but it was unfortunate I had to contac them forbattery issues.
