Summary: Samsung has previously not done well with under-powered tablets except the Nexus 10 they made for Google. This one seemed to be the answer with a big beautiful screen but Samsung seems to have shot themselves in the foot again with a flaky wi-fi system.
Pros: Beautiful screen, thin and fairly light.
Cons: I tried streaming over a good Wi-Fi connection and the picture kept breaking up and going blotchy. My Nexus 5 phone alongside on the same stream was perfect so I brought the router from the bed room into the family room to be close (I know walking to the router is easier) but the result was no better and no matter how I configured the wi-fi there was no improvement. I have about 16 MB/s internet service and a quality router but the picture on my Nexus 5 put the Samsun...
Summary: As some reviewers said before me, the screen is a bit sluggish. My Samsung phone, I think, is more responsive. Takes way too much time to accomplish something on this beautiful tablet. I didn't realize before that slim good-looking bezel could be a problem, but when I hold the tablet, the screen sometimes responded to the pressure of my holding hand producing all kinds of surprises (and I surely didn't grip is with all my might).
Summary: it's little big for you hands !! as it says it DOES NOT support US 4G .. I tried it with T-mobile and it didn't work. AMOLED screen is beautiful back cover is bad .. i'd rather have note pro with the s pen and the beautiful back cover. overall .. it's not bad !! shipment took longer then what estimated .. buy from samsung it's self .. don't buy from a 3rd seller if you can !!
Excerpt: I gave this tablet to my husband as a gift, from the first time turning it on the device kept turning on and off on and off. For the price I'm very disappointed, they sent me another one and it's doing the same thing! The picture on the tablet is phenomenal, just wish it would stop turning on and off! !

Excerpt: The general problems occurs while streaming videos on ChromeCast. It simply crashes the process bar, when sliding it down while casting a video to the TV. It crashes it such a way, that the only option is to restart the device. I am a super user of Android, and have cleared the cache, reinstalled etc etc. Nothing ...

Summary: Had the tablet for the weekend now and one item is a real issue. The tablet is not capable of using micro SD XC cards. I took it to Best Buy and asked the Samsung guy....he did not believe me. We tried two Samsung SD XC cards in my tablet and they did not work. He then tried the cards in the floor model and they also did not work. If anyone has been able to use an SD XC card please let me know.
