Thought it would be more powerful...
20 March 2014
Summary: Bought this thinking that tablets could be a viable alternative to a laptop, and should have done my homework better. We like this tablet for what it's good at, listening to music while surfing for recipes in the kitchen, surfing the internet while watching TV, but for the most part my new Samsung smart phone is already more powerful. Can't wait for when these get more powerful than a laptop.
Galaxy Tab 8.9", test throughly when receiving a used purchase!!! Either way Samsung tablets are the best!

Summary: I think I got jipped with this one, that's what I get for buying a used tablet and not returning it after I noticed one of the burnt pixels. I have a WiFi only model of this tablet that has the 1ghz dual core, where this ATT one has a better processor and my WiFi only works much smoother! I'm using it as a car tablet that I slide in and out. Problem like I said is that this one is not as smooth, bogs down like crazy some times.
Summary: The product was advertised as "NEW". I was even told by an Electro Brands representative it was " factory sealed", which it clearly was not. The seals were broken, and there were finger prints all over the screen protector. I should have paid more attention to the reviews, as many other buyers received "display models" of their products as well.
Summary: I purchased the tablet back in March of this year. It worked fine for a few months, but I have to say I didn't really use it much mostly for plane trips. I probably had a total use time of 20 hours. One day I went to turn it on, and nothing happened. I recharged it overnight even though I knew that battery should have been fully charged. The next day I tried it again, and it still would not call on. I called Samsung tech support for assistance.
Summary: This is not a terrible tablet by any means, but I wish I'd bought another make. The tablet is underpowered, with the screen response laggy and inconsistent. The tablet also needs rebooting regularly as it locks or crashes. Web browsing is also pretty slow, much slower than my phone, put it this way. And the famed upgrade to ICS 4 is still not here, when most companies are now upgrading their devices to 4.1.
Not as expensive as an iPad so don't expect an iPad

Summary: I'm no major Apple fan although I have an iPod touch (1st gen 32gb), iPhone 3G and iPhone4s and therefore, I feel I'm well placed to make a comparison between the Apple interface and this. Firstly, I was going to go for the Google Nexus 7 but 7 inches is just too small. Then I was going to go for the 10.1 inch Samsung Galaxy Tablet but it just felt too heavy in my hands and so I discovered this and like Goldilocks, it was just right.
Summary: The reason the tablets supplied by eXpansys are such a good price may be that they are EU versions. This is not necessarily a major problem, but it should be made clear on the Amazon web site, and it isn't. Mine was suppled with an Universal AC Inlet - UK Outlet Adaptor which I managed to break on the first day which doesn't say much for its quality. It seems to charge OK using a shaver adaptor though.
Summary: Perfect size for a tablet but ultimately disappointing in a number of key areas, particularly if you're someone who's had experience of an iPad (and perhaps this is the point I should make clear I'm someone who doesn't like Apple but who feels that Apple products, with their reassuring levels of build quality and ease of use, are the only real world options right now).
Summary: I've had the SGT 8.9" since January. Price Comparable in price to an iPad, but when the two devices are compared side by side, this looks poor value for money. Size/Form This is where the device excels in my view. Possibly the ideal size for a tablet; light and small enough to be held in one hand comfortably. Camera The rear camera is only 2MP but how often would you want to use it? The front camera is fine for Skype etc.
Summary: Пользуюсь аппаратом около 2-ух месяцев. В целом довольно, но есть недостатки: после обновления вконтакте, перестал сохранять фото и порой не дает смотреть видео. Иногда глючит и выдает ошибку после обновлений каких-нибудь программ. Нужна прошивка, тогда все будет работать отлично. А так звук, дизайн, размер просто супер.
