Summary: Probably one of my favorite electronic purchases ever. I wanted this for school, and it keeps all of my notes and info secure. It works like any android phone (so it's easy for me to use!), it holds a lot (got extended memory) and honestly if I just want to prop it to watch netflix while I cook, I can do that. Want to read books in bed? Can do that too. Listen to music? Surf school emails and notes? Draw? Write? Yup yup yup!
lightweight, easy to setup and operate with great screen resolution
18 October 2014
Summary: Fast even though it only has 8 gb. Includes many useful apps and works well with my wireless network. Easy to operate and setup is simple and quick. Lightweight makes it easy to hold but does not detract from being able to see what you are doing. Resolution and graphics are above average. Camera results are exceptional.
Excerpt: My only other tablet is a Xoom I bought used, so I can't say that I have a vast amount of experence in tablets. This one seems to be faster. Pros: Speed. Stylus IR remote. Thin. Great camera. It can wake when I open the Ovoe book cover that I purchased. I think it's done by the magnet that holds it shut. Cons: The Xoom has a button I can click which shows open apps. I can click them to switch to the app, or drag them to close an app.
Excerpt: Being an artist and a teacher, when looking for a new tablet that would serve me well in both those capacities while also small and portable, only the Note 8 fit the bill. S Note has been my go to app for all the various notes for work, from parent conferences, professional development, to lesson planning on the go. The S- pen has completely turned me off of ever using my finger or stylus to draw or paint again.
This product forces you to interface with their selected vendors to function fully
9 October 2014
Excerpt: This product forces you set up an account with their selected email vendor to function properly for email or video services such as Netflix. Absolutely ridiculous. Product functionality between applications requires multiple unnecessary steps and is inefficient and distracting. The device was heavier than I expected.
Excerpt: This tablet may not be the newest one but it has great features that will blow your mind. The video streaming is so high definition thst it makes you feel like you are there in the moment. The speakers of this tablet are loud and clear. It is very cheap yet it is better than most of the newer tablrts. The only problem I have with the tablet is that the battery life is wo short.
Pros: Bright display, Built-In Speakers, Durable, Inexpensive, Lightweight, Realistic color
