Reviews and Problems with Samsung Google Nexus 10 / GT-P8110
Showing 1-10 of 19
Looks great but breaks easily. Very poor service
29 April 2014
Summary: I bought this tablet to take on trips for business and pleasure use. The 10 inch screen and high resolution was a big plus. When it works it's a great tablet. Clear picture and easy use. Then it wouldn't turn on and the help pages on the internet indicated that this was a common problem and provided some possible fixes. None of these worked. Amazon will not replace this item if it malfunctions and Samsung has a horrible service department.
Summary: This is a Nexus 10 with a European charger, completely useless in the United States unless you buy a charger elsewhere. That changes the cost of acquiring the item. I should have read the other low reviews, but just assumed that a Nexus 10 being sold in the United States, shipped in the United States and shipped TO the United States would be functional in the United States. This is not, and it's not revealed to the purchasers.
Summary: I am just a recreational user and didn't use it daily. Well, after 4 months it just died. Will not recharge at all. Am waiting on whether the seller (PrimeDeal) will "accept" the return, according to Amazon. I think I made a big mistake here. Just heard back from Amazon AND PrimeDeal and neither will accept this return. Now I have to track down Samsung to see if they will fix it. Buy this at your own risk b/c Amazon & PrimeDeal will abandon you after 30 days!!!
Amazing Tablet......until it stopped working properly
1 October 2013
Summary: This tablet was amazing when it came out of the box. The screen is crystal clear, and it just felt very fluid when I was using it. But no more than a week into owning this device I had problems. First off, this device takes FOREVER to charge! If you have it plugged in and are using it at the same time, it doesnt even charge, instead it just sort of idles.
Summary: I've got a Motorola Xoom that outperforms this hands down. This won't even play the movie that comes with it, says not enough bandwidth, switches to normal mode, then still can't keep up! Something is seriously wrong with the WiFi in this unit. S L O W. My Ipad 3 runs circles around it and looks much better. Think the increased resolution is a plus? Forget it, doesn't look that great to me, colors are washed out. I read a review that said this had AMOLED screen...
Summary: I bought the Nexus 7 for travel and liked it so much that I decided to buy the Nexus 10 to use at home. The Nexus 10 screen was gorgeous, Jelly Bean 4.2 had lots of neat features and the build quality was excellent so I quickly learned to love my new tablet. That is until it started misbehaving. It began with Chrome becoming unresponsive to touch inputs followed by a spontaneous complete shutdown and eventually a reboot.
Why I would not buy a Nexus again after having one for a year

Summary: My Nexus 10 worked fine for 6 months, and then something went very wrong. It started locking up. Then it started shutting down and it wouldn't turn on again. I noticed the battery would say strange things like: "100 percent charged. 0 seconds." If I unplugged it, it would shut down and not turn on again until 2 hours of charging. So I called support and went through lots of troubleshooting steps, including a full factory reset. Finally, it stopped working completely.
Summary: What a shame I have to give a poor review for this. I didn't see the point of writing a review of this type of item as soon as I bought it. When you spend £350 on something, longevity is an important factor. I had this tablet for almost a year and it worked perfectly. Then the screen started freezing and would go blank and I would be unable to turn it back on.
Summary: Be careful who you order from on line. I ordered from another, GB based international dealer on Wednesday, paid for next day delivery, and I am still waiting today, Monday. At the soonest it will come Tuesday, so that is almost a week!!!! For some reason Paypal asked the seller to verify my address, which has held things up.
Summary: Only had it a day might be overreacting but I am dissapointed with it so far regarding apps that don't work. I wanted it in the main for media playing but it is very restricted at the moment on what apps will work. SkyGo, BBC IPlayer, dont work. ITV player is like watching through a letter box as will only work on portrait.I was reluctant to buy an iPad but I might have made a mistake here..This is the problem not being able to buy from a store and trying it out.
