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: I have always wanted one of the Galaxy Note products for use taking notes at the office, but could not justify the high cost. When the Galaxy Note 8 was priced right, I immediately bought one. I was pleased that it immediately upgraded to Android 4.4, but later discovered that this version of Android had a few serious issues with it: The device keeps on indicating that it is overheating (when it is not) and the battery life is terrible.
Pros: Bright display, Built-In Speakers, Realistic color
Cons: Battery drains fast, buggy android 4.4, Did not meet expectations, Expensive
Excerpt: I have had this for about a year now. It started out terrific but occasionally it will not allow me to use any touch screen functions. I have turned it off and back on to reboot it but sometimes it just doesn't matter. It gets frustrating to try and use it. Other than that, it has been a great tablet.
Pros: Bright display, Durable, Inexpensive, Realistic color
Excerpt: I purchased the Galaxy Note 8.0 at the same time I replaced my smartphone. I opted for both Samsung products. I preferred having products that shared the same technology. My previous tablet seemed to be easier to operate; however, that may be due to developing a level of familiarity with the first tablet. My wife has a tablet similar to my first tablet and I still feel more comfortable with it than the Samsung.
Pros: Bright display, Inexpensive, Lightweight, Realistic color
Excerpt: This is the second tablet that has gone bad. The first didn't turn on three weeks after purchased. This unit failed in less than a year. Luckily it is still covered under warranty. I just received an email that it has been repaired and is being shipped backed. Hopefully the data is still in the tablet.
Some uninstallable bloatware; unable to move apps to SD card; problems using 64Gb SD card
23 May 2014
Excerpt: The system is otherwise potentially very awesome, but there are Apps I do not use, taking up space and battery life; some are obsolete. I had to find a way to format the 64Gb SD card to Fat32 instead of exFAT, otherwise the tablet keeps crashing. Why would Samsung not allow Apps to be moved to the SD card? Why don't they tell you about problems with 64Gb SD cards and offer solutions? I like that the microUSB is also MHL.
Pros: mhl port
Cons: known problems with 64gb sd cards, slow to update to kitkat, unable to move apps to sd card, uninstallable bloatware
Summary: Samsung galaxy note 8.0 gt-5100 16gb 3G + wifi. This was a 2nd one ordered and it still shows 9.78gb (advertise 16gb) disappointed and lost...doesn't make sense no feedback comments mentioned regard to this concern from previous buyers or explanation from sellers? Apology but This is ridiculous.
